A mantra is considered to be a sacred sentence that forms in the heart and spills from the lips. They are often used in meditative practice and commonly said in Sanskrit. But even for those who don’t want to chant or turn their tongue around the sounds, you can take the intention of a mantra and apply it to find your meaning. Using a mantra every day is an amazing way of reminding yourself of what you need to know.
Choose the mantra that resonates deeply with where you are in your life now and use it to build your meditative practice. Whether you whisper it to yourself in the morning or before sleep, or when you do your yoga flow practice; the mantra is there to keep you connected to your deeper self. Here are ten mantras to help spark your inspiration…

Crack your heart open to endless love, we promise this is not a finite resource.
Right now is the only moment that matters
Staying present can be tricky business, but the past is gone and the future is not promised.
I am ready to let go
Sometimes we need a daily reminder to let go of the things that no longer serve us well in this world.
All I need to do today is show up
Whether it’s on the yoga mat or facing yourself in the mirror. Showing up is the hardest hurdle.
Everything changes, everything passes
Nothing lasts forever, while there may be a pain in that, there is also strength and pleasure.
The body whispers before it shouts
If we remind ourselves to check in every day, we stay connected to what our body wants.
I am enough
It’s the simple words that count especially as we always think we are too much or not enough.
I am where I need to be right now
Try not to be impatient with yourself or the universe, life is a journey and this is where you stand today.
Fear is the mind-killer
It may come from a sci-fi book, but if we don’t learn to control fear it will control us.
The breath – the only thing that matters right now.
