Getting started using a mantra can be easy. Start by choosing which aspect of your life you wish to improve or some problem you would like to solve or resolve. Offer a prayer to God, in whatever way you relate to God. Ask for God’s blessing in accomplishing your objective.
Once you have decided to undertake the discipline of using a mantra for meditation and offered your prayers,find a quiet and comfortable place where you will say your mantra ( once a day or several times each day). A Japa Mala or Rosary works well with most mantras. Spend each day saying your mantra. It can be five minutes, ten minutes, twenty minutes or even an hour. If it’s your first time I suggest no longer than 20 minutes.
Remember you are not making a wish, you are asking God for help/guidance in improving something in your life or surroundings.
