A Note about Creative Mantra Meditation: This meditation is meant to be complementary to your regular Mantra Meditation practice. You can use it whenever you like, but do so after you’ve sat for your regular practice, either immediately following or at some time later in your day. Your regular practice is your foundation and allows you to receive the greatest benefit from this meditation.
If you’re new to meditation and haven’t read What is Meditation, What is Mantra Meditation and Getting Started with Your Mantra Meditation Practice, it would be helpful to read these posts before going further as they provide the foundation of all of my meditation posts.
Creative Meditation is a form of mantra meditation that can be used when you’re looking to imprint the idea of a specific goal or idea on your subconscious mind.
Choose Your Mantra
In this meditation, we choose a word or short phrase that represents our goal or idea and use this as our mantra.
You can choose any word or short phrase you like, and you can use a different mantra each time you do this meditation depending on your goal or idea.
For example, if you are looking to create more of an Ageless Vibe, you might choose to use the word ‘Ageless’ as your mantra, or use the word as a phrase, ‘Age Less’, or you could use a short phrase such as ‘I am Ageless’.
If you were looking to get your body more fit, you might choose the word ‘Fitness’ as your mantra, or you could use a short phrase such as ‘More fit’ or ‘I have a fit body’.
Creative Meditation Instructions
Get into your meditation sitting position. Rest your hands gently and comfortably on your lap, palms facing upward.
Close your eyes and just sit comfortably for a minute, taking in a few deep breaths. Run a quick scan of your body, relaxing it from head to toe as you do.
Think about your goal or idea you are choosing to imprint on your subconscious mind and affirm that this is the intention of your meditation.
And then, quietly begin repeating your chosen mantra within your mind. You can also think of it as hearing your mantra repeating in your mind. Don’t think about your mantra, just say it. You can say it slow or you can say it fast, whatever feels right for you.
As outside thoughts and feelings arise, and it’s natural that they do, you can notice them, but you don’t add anything to them, just notice that they’re there, and then just allow your focus to return to your focus phrase.
When thoughts and feelings that relate to your mantra come up, you can notice them also, and unlike other meditations where we notice without adding to them, this is a time that you can begin to ride the wave, allowing the thoughts and feelings to expand, without force, just allowing it to happen naturally.
Continue riding the wave as long as it feels good, and once you notice that your thoughts and feelings have strayed into an unrelated territory, gently begin repeating your mantra within your mind again, until you catch a new wave of related feeling.
When your meditation time is up, gently come back to present time, open your eyes. You’ll want to have a notebook and a pen nearby so you can jot down your thoughts and feelings, as well as any insight gained through your meditation. Take your time and when you’re ready, slowly rise up out of your seated position… and go about the rest of your day, feeling so good that you’ve made this time for yourself.
