Early on i had a mantra that I repeated to myself MANY times. I did it while walking on the treadmill, when I couldn't sleep, in the car, anytime I needed peace and love and hope. I did it to just clear my mind to know it was enough to just "be".
Mine was a variation of a verse from the Bible. I would say over and over, with a pretty easy cadence:
Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I AM.
Be still and know. Be still and know.
Be still. Be still
I don't remember where I got that idea. I do not mean to offend if that is not a belief system you share.
I actually think the lyrics to the new song on the radio, "Peace" by O.A.R. might work as a mantra, too:
"I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace"
