Mental Health Mantra 59/365
28 days later.
28 Flower Mantras.
The variety of flowers and their mantras have got me through this month and all that it has delivered. I could carry on and paint more flowers - who knows I may very well return, there are another many more days here, but for now I will move on to March with a new feature. This gives me the opportunity to develop and to challenge my hand/eye/brain connection.
The mantra that came forth this morning is Sat Nam.
"Sat Nam is the mantra repeated at the end of a kundalini yoga practice to end the session, it also can be repeated during meditation. I find it very reassuring and soothing these days.
Sat Nam, is one the most commonly used mantras in Kundalini Yoga, in the ancient Sikh language called Gurmukhi, Sat means truth. Nam means name. Together, Sat Nam essentially translates into something deeper: “I am truth,” or “Truth is my essence.” Sat Nam is like a seed that begins to germinate inside of you. The vibration of a mantra shifts us on an atomic level (ref Kundalini 101)."
I am called to commit to this practice more and more, to translate the feelings I have and the healing I am doing as I move through this next phase of moving out and moving on.
This morning, upon waking early, I sat with the colours and the water. This was such a hypnotic piece, first with the paint and once dried, I came back to spend snapshots of time to add elements with pen.
It feels a good place to end for February.
The flowers have been very different and although I continue on my Bach Flower course, I can always return to paint more flowers.
Thank you for joining me here / I hope so far these Mental Health Mantras are supporting you as they are me.
Day 60 tomorrow / Onwards to Month 3.
Keep shining Star Seeds.
