A Mantra is a chant repeated to help one stay balanced or to help one stay focused on certain tasks or outcomes. Originally they were based in religion, however, in this new age we live in many people simply call a phrase that they use for empowerment a mantra. Some people even think of their mantras as an unseen lucky charm always with them. It is thought that a Mantra when repeated often enough can help one to accomplish certain tasks and to call upon one’s inner self to exhibit certain sought after behavior. To use a Mantra effectively it should probably be short and easy to remember so that one can repeat it easily and often or many times consecutively which is sometimes referred to as chanting. This can, of course, be done out loud or silently to yourself. The following Mantra is for couples and while it is in a list format the Mantra itself is only the first three words of each sentence – I Will Try… If you read them often they may be committed to memory and then as you repeat I Will Try as needed perhaps it will bring to memory some of the thoughts that you previously read.
