Let’s talk about mantras!
You may be wondering how these sounds are so effective at relaxing the body and healing your nervous system. Well, the sound quality of the mantra and its intrinsic energy de-excites our nervous systems to create order in our cells, which allows stress to release from the body.
This is why Emily mentions in our courses that the meaning of the word is not important — it’s all about the sound it makes in your body.
While these materials I’m sharing below don’t talk about mantras specifically (unfortunately), they explore the science behind these ideas and provide a bit of evidence for what the teachers of this tradition have known for thousands of years.
