The best mantras for wealth are the ones in which a person truly believes. A few examples of these mantras may include some variation of, “I am a money magnet”; “Prosperity is my divine right” or “Money is all around me and, therefore, readily available as I need to use it.” Wealth chants are sometimes dedicated to a religious deity, such as those offered to Lakshmi, whom Hindu adherents believe to be the goddess of wealth and prosperity. Also referred to as basic wealth affirmations, wealth mantras are not always necessarily related to a religious practice or organization.
Mantras for wealth are sometimes referred to as basic wealth affirmations or wealth chants. They have been respected throughout the ages by those who believe in affirmations as a way of creating wealth. Just as some have relied upon mantras for good health and chants to attract a variety of other life circumstances, many believe that mantras are also useful in attracting prosperity.
In Sanskrit, a mantra is defined as a sacred utterance. A mantra may be a sound, a word or a group of words that are repeated or chanted in order to achieve a desired outcome. In Hindu culture, as well as other philosophies, mantras are believed to possess the actual physical energy to create targeted results. An example of a Sanskrit wealth mantra is, “Om Shrim Mahalakshmiyei,” which in English translates as, “Om and salutations to that feminine energy which bestows all manner of wealth, and for which Shrim is the seed.”
In non-religious circles, the underlying philosophy of mantras for wealth is that human beings believe and, therefore, act upon the thoughts and phrases to which they repeatedly listen. Mental beliefs and thoughts are seen as powerful creative mechanisms or as building blocks for a person’s reality. Mantras for wealth are, therefore, repeated in order to condition the mind to believe that manifesting wealth is possible. For those who use them, wealth chants are seen as a way of programming or conditioning the mind for success. This mindset is also commonly referred to as a prosperity consciousness.
Motivational speakers and self-help experts also suggest mantras or positive affirmations as a way of reconditioning the human mind. For example, the art of autosuggestion, or self-hypnosis, first introduced to the world by Dr. Emile Coue in 1920 operates on the same principles as wealth mantras. Known as positive self-talk, repeating a self-affirming phrase, such as this one suggested by Coue, “Every day in every way, I'm getting better and better,” as many as 30 times per day is viewed as a way of positively conditioning the mind for success.
Mantras for wealth can be a controversial topic between those who believe in their power and those who do not. Many use pervasive poverty, especially in underdeveloped nations, as evidence against wealth mantras. Others are thoroughly convinced of the power of wealth chants and point to the financial prosperity of some who use them as evidence for wealth mantras and their effectiveness.
