I do not believe a chant will facilitate any special spiritual power. I do however want to fill my attitude with positivity in hopes that this attitude will affect all areas of my life. So, instead of a New Years Resolution I have come up with Positive Affirmations, sort of like a mantra (minus the 'special spiritual powers'). I can not take full credit for this as I read it else where, but I did some tweaking to make it my own.
#1. Every cell in my body glows with Joy.
#2. Loving myself heals my life.
#3. I will nurture my mind, body and soul with His word.
#4. I release all worries to God, and allow beauty to find me.
#5. When I believe in myself, so do others.
#6. I choose Faith, Love, Joy and Freedom to open my heart and accept splendid things to fill my soul.
There you have it, my 'mantra' for any and all goals I might set for myself this year. I pray that each of you can find that something to help you grow in the year of 2012. Whether that be a New Years Resolution, a verse for the year or even a 'mantra' so to speak.
Blessings to each of you!
