Mantra is a unique form of therapy which involves repeating a short phrase again and again with the aim of invoking certain qualities like peace, light or joy. These phrases are chanted out aloud or internally to ones inner self, and are normally associated with Buddhist figures whose qualities are cultivated by the reverberation of the relevant mantra. The phrase ‘Mantra’, has its origins in Sanskrit where ‘man’ stands for mind and ‘tra’ stands for instrument, the word ‘tra’ can also refer to an English name ‘free’. ( I personally see the ‘Man’ being taken from manana which means to think deeply and the ‘tra’ from Trana meaning deliverance – Mantrik )
Thus mantras are techniques that can help people free their mind from thoughts that may be disturbing them or upsetting their balance.

Somebody asked for a powerful protection spell that would help with giving strength, courage and resistance.
There are many spells that come to mind that would serve the purpose, however I suggested that she might try a simple Hanuman Mantra. So I thought that I would let you see it, maybe you could use it sometime or maybe you know someone who could try it.
This is a very simple mantra, do not worry too much or get bogged down with the pronunciation of the mantra. Like all spell work, it is about intent and about purpose. Maybe the ceremonial magicians out there will disagree with this, and yes there is a point to argue on the fact of exact repetition and consistency, however for it is not expected or required for this or any mantra for that matter. I will add an anecdote later that hopefully will illustrate this point. Continue reading →
St David’s day is upon us and so our minds quite rightly are filled with images of leeks and daffodils and more importantly with Dragons.
The mystical and majestic image of a beautiful dragon, a greater site you could ever imagine. I am sure that all our dragons look different to each of us, even if they do share some similarities with each other. I am also sure that our dragons symbolise different things to each and every one of us.

Dragons can be both creators and destroyers of life, and will breathe out fire, ice or poison depending on any particular myth. Continue reading →
