43 Positive Mantras That Will Change Your Life

Your mind, body and spirit are all intrinsically entwined – you are what you think. The words we think, the words we say, have profound effects on our state of being, mindset, and our actions.

Choosing to surround ourselves with positivity is vital for all-round healthy wellbeing. These are positive mantras that will help get your mind into a positive state. An essential part of a self-care routine.

Some people call them mantras, others call them affirmations.

What is a mantra?

Mantra comes from the Sanskrit for ‘an instrument of thought’. That is, it is a tool to help the mind.

By repeating a mantra to ourselves we affirm it’s meaning, change our thought process, and instil it into our minds.

A mantra meditation can be an incredibly powerful way to alter your mindset. It is an empowering tool to help overcome negative and damaging thoughts.

Mantras tend to be short, simple enough to remember, and easy to repeat.

Raj has one of the original mantras tattooed on his arm:

“Om namah shivaya” which roughly translated means, strength from within. It is thousands of years old and probably one of the most famous Hindu mantras.

How to use the mantras

Choose the mantras that resonate with you. Perhaps the ones you need to build on in your own life. The ones that might jar with you because you don’t truly believe them yet.

Start your day and end it by repeating some of these mantras to help you strengthen and focus your mind.

If you have moments throughout the day where you have a wobble, something happens, or you mind drifts to a negative place, try repeating your mantras to yourself again.
