One morning I came downstairs to find my husband working on the computer. Without words and hardly a look passing between us, I could sense that he was not feeling ok. My heart sank and I started to worry. I could feel that if I tried to talk it wouldn’t really help.
I tried weakly to calm my worries and anxiety but they had gained some grip on me now. I felt helpless to help him. I wished I had that center of peace and strength within myself that Belsebuub describes can be created with the spiritual inner work, a peace that could help others feel better if they felt down and that wouldn’t be affected by my surroundings — the reality was the opposite though and I was trapped by my own negativity.
Singing a Mantra as a Prayer for Help
It came to my mind that I could sing a mantra. From Belsebuub’s work I had learned about mantras and knew from experience that it could help uplift the frequency and energy of the room and the mood of the people in it.
I asked my husband if he would mind if I sang a mantra and did he have any he’d like to hear. He said, ‘Something that dispels negativity.’ Even before he said that though, I had decided I would sing the Gayatri mantra that I had learned from the book by Belsebuub and Angela Pritchard, The Path of the Spiritual Sun. Also, having recently read about a dream experience of it, it was the first one to come to mind.
There are many versions of it but this is the one I did as I find its melody and tone calming and having a sense of devotion to it:
The Power of the Gayatri Mantra
I sat down, did the recitation Bellilin and began the mantra slowly and deliberately. I wanted to put focus on each word, sing it as beautifully and strongly as possible. I felt down but tried to sing it sincerely, as a prayer to my inner Being to help us get out of the negativity.
The Bellilin helped some to initially lighten the energy, but it only took a few times of chanting the Gayatri to feel a peaceful, powerful emanation filling the space with silence and stillness. I continued for some time, to go deeper into it and wanting to strengthen the higher vibration.
Uplifting Both Our Moods
After I had finished, I felt calmer and more objective, not worried and anxious anymore. I could feel that my husband had also got rid of his negativity. I felt that there was a connection and unity between us again.
That morning I felt heavy and had a long day ahead in front of the computer. When Laura suggested to sing a mantra, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try and shake off my bad mood. I tried to relax as much as I could and allow the sound of the mantra to reach me. By the end of the session, I did feel lighter and clearer. It was quite remarkable how the mantra changed my internal state for the better.
