The Healing Power of Mantra

Sound is known to be a powerful process that helps in expanding and healing hearts and minds. Similarly chanting mantras takes the environment to another level with enigmatic power of transformation. Mantras are known to be an effective way of bringing inner peace into the body and mind. In this blog, I have highlighted some facts about the healing power of mantra.

What is Mantra?

negative thoughts and thinking

Mantra is a numinous sound or a sacred utterance with energetic sound formulas. Basically, mantras help us to think wisely and put everything in a better perspective. Mantras help heal the soul and body from negative thoughts and thinking. Mantras basically uplift the mind, soul, and body. The ancient people believed that the chanting of mantras improves inner consciousness and bridges up the joy and connection. After learning what actually a mantra is, the next question arrives; can mantras really heal the body, soul, and mind?

Can Mantras Really Heal?

Some studies show that people who never tried mantras in their whole life were introduced to the mantra. After some time and days, people really felt calm and happy. People shared that chronic pain eases up while reciting a mantra. Mantra also provides energy and strength to achieve goals. So, the answer is yes, mantra actually heals as mantra carries a sacred power which directly contacts with the present moment. Hence, Mantra helps us to live in the present moment which is really beneficial for mental and physical health.

Studies also show that reciting mantras reduces anxiety, depressive symptoms, and stress. In return chanting of mantra alleviates positive mood, calmness, and relaxation to the mind and body. Regardless of chanting during prayers, changing improves psychological and physiological being… whatever you chant or recite like a mantra is proved to be effective.

Moreover, meditation practiced along with meditation and mindfulness improves the quality of life because meditation and mindfulness act as an energy dose during reciting any mantra. Furthermore, group chanting provides more opportunities and benefits than silent chanting due to high vocals on altruism.
