Meditation is a great way to relieve stress and anxiety. It can be done by sitting quietly, repeating a mantra (word or phrase), or listening to a song or chant. These five chants provide a focal point for your meditation, while you meditate your way to a quiet mind.
Shanti Mantram - Seven & Stephan - This sacred chant of India is a prayer for peace. Allow the words to envelope you and bring stillness to your body and mind.
Long Time Sun - Snatam Kaur - This old Irish blessing combined with the smooth voice of Snatam Kaur will put you into a deep relaxation. Picture yourself surrounded by light and love as your tensions drift away.
Be Still - Sophia - This chant opens the seventh chakra, and brings you closer to divine energy. Visualize violet energy flowing through the body as the crown chakra is cleansed and strengthened.
The Mantra of Padmasambhava - Lama Gyurme & Jean-Philippe Rykiel - This Sanskrit chant for Guru Rinpoche will help you overcome malevolent forces and bring you closer to enlightenment.
Shiva Shambho - Namaste - Give thanks to Shiva, the God of destruction, as new opportunities are provided for you. This chant is appropriate for beginners, as the words are clear and the inflection is consistent.
