Peeing and mantra…not exactly two words that would have anything to do with one another, let alone in the same sentence. What is it exactly? Well, here’s how it came about.
A while back I was having a conversation with someone about some of the things we do that make us happy. We got talking about yoga and exercise, writing and mantras. She shared more with me about a mantra she had been working with. The peeing mantra. Needless to say she had my attention.
Mantras, generally speaking are groups of words that when spoken, are capable of creating some sort of transformation.
She went on to say that, one of the challenges people have is creating time to meditate and reflect. With our busy lives, it is understandable that it is difficult to carve out time for regular day-to-day stuff, let alone meditating and mantras. “We all pee” she said. Agreed. “Why not use that time to make a point of repeating a mantra”. Interesting.
The challenge given to me was this. Every time you pee, repeat to yourself “Every day in every way, my life (day/career/relationships/health etc) is getting better and better”. Easy enough?! And so, I took on the challenge.
It may seem silly at first, but stick with it and start noticing the changes.
For example, If you are in a pissy mood (pun intended), repeating the mantra will make you feel a little better. It is a fact that if you smile while mad, your body releases chemicals that will positively impact your mood. (Try it!) Before you know it, you will find yourself asking “how is my day/life (whatever fits) getting better and better?” Just being able to focus on the positives vs the negatives shifts your mood and the situations you find yourself in.
The peeing mantra. Write it out. Post it in your bathroom. I challenge you to try it. 😊
