I am - ham sa
"Where our mind goes, there our energy flows!"
YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK!
Plant the seeds of your thoughts just like the bulbs you plant in the fall. Knowing that this is the time to daydream and choose your thoughts wisely. Because they will start to blossom in the spring.
So, what is it that you wish to bring into being? What dream? What project?
Let's use today's meditation to help us set a foundation for these dreams.
Please set aside 10 minutes to practice.
Meditation using Mantra
There are many different ways to meditate and today you will play with using a mantra.
Now you may ask yourself, what is a mantra? A mantra is a set of words or a phrase that is meaningful to you that is repeated again and again. It could be like the Little Blue Engine's, "I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!".
The intention behind using a mantra is to help quiet and focus the mind on one thing. And because your energy goes towards what you're thinking about, it is important to choose your mantra mindfully. You have an incredible ability to bring about those things which you put your attention on. So for today's practice, you will use the mantra HAM SA.
HAM SA means "I am That". This mantra reinforces the fact that what you focus upon ultimately becomes part of your identity. I am strong! I can do this! I am creative! Henry Ford's words come to mind, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”
Working with the mantra, HAM SA, is an opportunity for you to connect with your own identity and to have an experience of connecting with the Great I AM. Take a moment to recognize that you are a part of a bigger picture. Your actions, thoughts, and words ripple out affecting those around us and beyond. You are not isolated and abandoned but you are loved and connected. You can make a difference.
I invite you to experience this connection. Play along in the video below.
Keep breathing and smiling! I'll see you tomorrow. :)
