Simple Mantras for Better Living – Something Wonderful Is Going to Happen Today!!

I’ve started using simple mantras as a way to focus my daily intentions.  A mantra is a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of creating spiritual transformation, into manifestation.  The Sanskrit word mantra consists of the root man- “to think” and the suffix -tra, designating a tool or instrument, and therefore a literal translation of mantra would be “instrument of thought”.  This is exactly what these simple mantras help me do – create spiritual transformation by using a simple sentence as a tool to focus my thoughts.

I started using the mantra below in a situation where I had nothing left to lose.  I couldn’t figure out what I could possibly do to make the situation better.  Everything about the situation looked so bleak, and I couldn’t really see how things could work out positively. All I could do was worry. (Can you tell I have a few problems with being a control freak?)  I decided the best I could do was to try to stay neutral, and I handed it off to my guides and Higher self to deal with.  Then I just relaxed into this mantra. I breathed deep and repeated it three times.

 “Something wonderful is going to happen today.”

“Something wonderful is going to happen today.”

“Something wonderful is going to happen today.”

I was quite surprised then when unusually positive things did start happening.  It is amazing how our expectations and intentions set us up for what manifests into our reality. By staying neutral and really believing that something wonderful would happen to me, wonderful things did start happening.

Each day, some new and different wonderful thing happened. Sometimes it was small, and sometimes it was very big, or many wonderful things happened.  When I used this mantra before a potentially emotionally anguishing family scenario, the person that would have made things go sideways never showed up at all.  When I was anticipating a stressful showdown at work, it never materialized.  In another situation where I could initially see nothing positive coming out of it, it manifested into the most positive scenario that could have been expected.

I was thinking about why this mantra has been so effective for me.  It is so simple, it is almost laughable.  But its very simplicity is what makes it so effective.  It is general enough that it does not allow me to limit the way it expresses the wonderful thing.  As I have said before and will no doubt say again, I am sometimes a control freak who wants to tell the Universe *how* to deliver wonderful things to me.  Anyone who has looked at law of attraction principles for longer than 10 seconds, knows that trying to control the *how* of manifestation is never advisable for a myriad of reasons.

The biggest reason is that fixating on *how* something wonderful is coming to you, in most cases actually limits the types of manifestation of wonderful things available for you.  This is because the spectacularness of the wonderful things available to us is unlimited.  This means that sometimes the things can be even more wonderful (or different) than your puny mind is able to imagine.  By limiting them with your obsessive thoughts, you are not doing yourself any favours.

I think that the word “something” in this mantra is general enough that the wonderful thing or things do not need to connect to any one thing in particular.  By using the word “something” it is open enough to allow the wonderful thing to happen in one – or every – area of my life.

The other great thing about this mantra, is that it fixes the result, the delivery of the wonderful thing, into today – the present.  This means that it helps my focus remain on today, so that I remain fully in present today.  It helps me remember that today is what it is all about, instead of fixating on the past or the future.

Also, the wording of this mantra means that I am fully open to receiving in the present.  I have read that in all the steps of manifestation – desiring, releasing, receiving – that receiving is the most difficult.  We tend to block ourselves from receiving.  This mantra helps me remain fully open to receiving a wonderful thing today.

The last great thing, is that the gratitude feedback loop of this mantra is powerful.  When I can look back on the day before, and think about the wonderful thing or things that happened the day before, it makes me truly grateful, and helps me anticipate that another wonderful thing will indeed happen today.  I know the since something wonderful happened yesterday, another wonderful thing can happen today.

If you are a control freak like me, this mantra can come in very handy in helping you release your need to try and control the uncontrollable.  It is liberating, and also reassuring to see the support that follows through when you do release.  Feel free to share any of your results using it in the comments.

    Hi Steve,

    I haven’t personally done Slade’s Money Shift yet (and actually thanks for reminding me since I had it on my “to do” list), but I have the utmost respect for his writings, and some of his other products that I’ve actually used myself.

    Steve, when you are focussed on manifesting money, it really is more about the *beliefs* and *action* you personally are willing to take yourself, than about the actual amount of money. If you are in a place vibrationally where you truly believe that you could manifest $50,000, and you take the physical actions to get there, then you can literally create any amount of money. However, as humans we often have hidden beliefs about the world that hinder our ability to manifest whatever we are trying to.

    Andrrea Hess’ materials are good for manifesting, I’ve personally gotten results from her stuff.

    Good luck manifesting! Come back and share your results if you wish. :)
