Mantras are a powerful way to meditate, to manifest and focus the mind. By chanting the repetitive syllables, we also show great devotion to the divine. Also they are very fun! One of my favourite mantras is the "Ganesh Mantra".
Lord Ganesh, elephant god from the Hindu tradition is known as the remover of obstacles. So the following mantra is great to sing if you are ready to leave something behind in the past; if you are ready to move on to new things and overcome difficult situations. Just try next time you are stuck on a busy road in traffic to sing this mantra and see what happens ;-) I like the version in the video below as it is such a happy and uplifting chant. And it's super easy.
"Om Gan Ganpataye Namo Namah. Jaya Ganesha!"
