Magical Manifesting Formulas 3-Mantras

mantra for manifestation

According to Wikipedia, a mantra is  “a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of creating transformation.” I call any phrase that I repeat over and over a mantra. I use mantras for manifesting when I’m experiencing feelings I don’t want and I’ve gotten too tangled up in them to just feel them and let them go.

Here’s my formula:

1. Pick a mantra the resonates with you. Be it a hindu or Tibetan mantra, a bible verse, chanting om, or just a simple affirmation in your own language.

2. Repeat as often as you can.  You can use it while meditating, and I sometimes do, but If I really want to focus on a mantra, I repeat it in my mind as often as I can. I’ll say it while driving, while cleaning, while doing any task that doesn’t require mind power.

3. Bring your mind gently back when it wanders.  You might need a reminder, a sticky note with the mantra on it, a rubber band around your wrist, or a chime on your phone. If you notice you are feeling bad, drop the thoughts that bring on those feelings and go back to the mantra.

4. Do it until it doesn’t feel good anymore. I rarely use mantras anymore, because I’m happy most of the time and I have trained myself to focus on what is good. Once your mood lifts or the situation shifts, you can drop the mantra, unless it still feels good to you.

Here’s some results:

1. There is no fear, there is only love. This is an old affirmation from Myrtle Filmore, the co-founder of the Unity church. I’m not a fan of public speaking and used to get very nervous. If I used this Mantra a day or two before having to speak, I was able to get through it with out shaking and sometimes even enjoy it.

2. I really love the cash flow. This one came from Abraham-Hicks. I heard them use it with a business owner on one of their recordings. It worked wonders for me when I didn’t know how I was going to pay our bills. I seemed that repeating this kept me from worrying about it enough to let the money flow again and we were able to pay our bills on time.

3. All is well. I used this one along with the Unity Prayer for Protection to get through a period of time when I would wake up at night having panic attacks.

4. That was easy. I just started using this one a day or two ago when I became worried that we wouldn’t find a technician for our heating and cooling company and keep up with our customer’s needs.  I started it yesterday, and we have two qualified applicants coming to interview today after almost a month of looking.

Deva Pemal and Miten perform some of the most beautiful mantras. Here’s my favorite. It can melt any anxiety in just a minute.

I’d love to hear your experience with mantras or any comments you have. To prove it, I’m giving away one of my Angel Card readings (see service page) to one of my commenters during the month of May. I’ll put everyone’s name in and choose a winner to be announced here around June 1st. Then I’ll email the winner with the details if I have access to their e-mail or you can check back here around the first and e-mail me if you’re the winner.

The winner for April is Craig Kimbrough! I’ve got your e-mail, so I’ll send you the details. 🙂

Love and Alchemy,


I just had to edit this post when I remembered Catherine Ponder’s books.  They are full of affirmations.  One of my favorites from her is “There is gold dust in the air for me.”

    It’s not really a mantra, but it was very hot yesterday after being very cold. I hate being cold, so I just kept repeating “I will not complain about the heat” over and over. It helped me to enjoy the warm weather even though I was overdressed for it.

    • Michelle Dobbins says:

      Erin, That’s exactly how I use mantras, something to repeat to keep my mind off of negative thoughts. 🙂

  • Nina Rao says:

    One that I feel is magical and always helps me is, “everything can change in a second for the better!” Times when I’ve thought that there was no possible way a situation or health issue could change without a lot of time and effort, I’ve repeated this mantra, and “miraculously” things changed in a matter of minutes. I’m always amazed and grateful!
    Thanks for reminding me of this with your wonderful and timely post!

    Much Love and Grace to you,

    Thanks M, that was a great reminder on things to imbibe in my life for today! I grew up in India and come from a religious family – and like most families in India, my parents taught me the chants and mantras, idle worship and belief in god. When I moved out, I noticed people talk about asking the universe, law of attraction and I was always like ..”wait, so you don’t ask god for stuff? but just look up in the air and ask for what you want?” I felt like my whole life I was believing in something that is probably not true – however, now I realise after reading your post and many others like this one that anything, be it a stone, rock or a piece of paper, you show belief in will turn magical for you. Relating this back to you post, I tried affirmations like “I’m happy, all good things come to me” but never really felt emotionally convinced and protected and happy with it. However, when I chant something that I parents taught me to chant, like “Ya devi sarvabhuteshu, shakti rupen sansthitha, namastasya namastasya namastasya namo namah” which means Oh omnipresent goddess, that resides in all human beings in form or strength, wisdom, power, calmness, I bow in front of you, and know that you shall give me strength” I feel like there’s someone out there who is looking out for me. Just my thoughts, on what works for me. Sometimes it is hard though and there are no stories of magically things working out when I chant this, but just that due to my upbringing, I was raised to believe more in a God than science. Funny enough, because my father is a scientist 🙂

      Thanks for sharing this. I think that the Hindu religion is so beautiful. There is a guru that I love and I’ve enjoyed learning some of the chants and visiting the temples and watching the pujas performed. It seems there there is some ancient magic in them and it feels good to say them. You might have more magic from chanting than you think.I think in anything that gives you a connection with God and makes you feel like you are being looked out for has to bring good into your life. I believe in God myself and for me God and science combine. I use all terms here because I think we can connect to the universal power, whether we call it God or not, but do what makes you feel good. Blessings, Michelle

  • Hi Michelle,
    Thank you for this wonderful post on the power of mantra meditation. I think that we are drawn to certain mantras and they literally resonate a deep chord within us. They go beyond the material layers and harmonize with a deep intuitive spiritual truth. Perhaps that is the reason why regardless of denomination and culture, mantras unite humans because they touch that intangible spiritual commonality. I have always wondered why I am so attracted to certain mantras like St. Francis’s..Make me an instrument of thy peace…the ancient tibetan mantra-Om mani padme hum among others. I also love Emile Coue: Everyday in every way, I am getting better, better and better. While teacher training for Kundalini Yoga many years before, I happened upon a truth of mantra meditation that was consolidated by the books of Gregg Braden. The fact that mantra is an ancient scientific string of words that vibrates at high frequencies and literally has the power of changing the structural elements of matter. Then I realized the power of word and why some people who keep telling how bad they felt always materialized that in their lives. And those people who hummed happiness and spoke the language of love and abundance always got back the wonderful circumstances that made their life a miracle and an inspiration. I was like..hmm did I notice a pattern there or what? I have been hooked since. I think that spoken word is a very powerful medium of expression and the highest frequencies of specific strings of words in mantras resonate certain outcomes within us. SInce it is sound energy, even scientists cannot refute the power and transformative ability of words and mantras! Much like a tuning fork, mantras make us resonate into happier states! 🙂
    I love the one from one of my favorite teachers, Louise L Hay: “I love and approve of myself. All is well.”
    Thanks for your post!

      Thanks for sharing this, Harish! I love Louis Hay, too. She has some great mantras in her books. There are so many wonderful things for us to think and say that have so much power, it amazes me. Sometimes, I like old mantras because they seem to have the power of the ages in them and sometimes, just a simple phrase I create feels good. You’ve listed a lot of great ideas. 🙂
