3 Magical Mantras to Experience an Attitude of Gratitude
Showing appreciation for all that we have is one of the most important factors in manifesting a splendid life, and a feeling of gratitude is something we should experience every day.
When we strive for our goals from a place of lack and need, we send a message to the Universe that we are “running away” from something, as if there is “something wrong” with our present reality. This gives off a vibration of desperation and scarcity, and therefore, we attract more of the same. The great paradox is that when we are truly grateful and appreciative of our life as it is NOW, we send out the positive vibrations of abundance, therefore attracting in more wonderful people, prosperity and experiences. The more abundant we feel, the more abundant we become.
Gratitude is also a wonderful way to bring us into present time consciousness. When we are in a state of gratitude, it means that we are indeed, paying close attention to and appreciating everything that we have right NOW. In contrast to the sensation of striving to a better life that we convince ourselves will improve at some point in the future when we achieve or attain X, Y or Z. Being in the present allows us to experience joy, peace and calm. As all worries are about future anticipated events and sadness and pain comes from past memories.
Use these gratitude mantras to create a serene meditation, with your eyes closed as you imagine yourself looking into the cosmos. You will be put into a deeply profound state of gratitude, guaranteed to change your energy vibrations from negative to positive. You will align with the frequencies of abundance and love so that everything you wish for flows naturally into your life.

Hanuman: Myth, Mantra and Asana
Hanuman was born on the wind and a prayer. His father was Kesari, a sort of meditating gladiator monkey-like humanoid, called in Sanskrit, a “vanara”. His mother, Anjana, held the essence of her name: “anj” in Sanskrit means reverence.
Anjana and Kesari really wanted a kid and prayed to Lord Shiva for the blessing of conceiving a son. Shiva, pleased by their devotion and prayers, sent Vayu, the god of wind, to carry Shiva’s essence to fulfill their wishes, perhaps something like a sacred stork.
Turns out that Vayu delivered a pretty gifted kid. Like his gladiator father and like many of our modern-day mixed martial art competitors, Hanuman had a plethora of skills and talents. He wrestled demons, transformed himself to fit the needs of the particular circumstances against which he was fighting, and did so all with unwavering devotion.
Hanuman was devoted to Lord Rama, the god of righteousness and virtue.
Through his devotion, he was characterized as a lifelong Brahmachari (celibate). The belief that Hanuman’s celibacy is the source of his strength became popular among the wrestlers in India.
Hanuman: Behind the Name
Sanskrit texts mention several stories about how Hanuman got his name. Hanuman had a lifelong obsession with the sun, and as a youngster, blazed towards it, mistaking the sun for a mango and mischievously chomping a bite out of it. This really pissed off Indra, the king of the gods, who struck Hanuman’s jaw with lightening, to scold his impetuous nature. A bit harsh, right? Regardless, Hanuman is said to have received his name from the Sanskrit words “hanu” meaning jaw, and “man” meaning prominent or disfigured.
Another lore credits the name as a derivative of the Sanskrit words “han” meaning killed or destroyed, and “mana” meaning pride; indicating that Hanuman is the one whose pride was destroyed.
As Saul David Raye shares in Earth Heart Hanuman, “humility comes when the jaw is broken.” Whether you’re an elite mixed martial artist, or simply a modern-day yogi maneuvering through daily challenges, we discover that when our hearts are full of devotion, our spirit is unbreakable. Saul David Raye says that the stories of Hanuman can teach us, “the balance of incredible opening while still staying balanced.”
It’s Hanuman we can thank for the devotion it takes to practice Sun Salutations, or Surya Namaskars, which are a series of poses linked by the breath. Sun Salutations invite us to bow to and unite with the sun, as a pathway to the divine.
