The Mantra And The Successful Marriage
Feelings…the more you have, the more you share the more you get. It is the circle of life. OK, so it is not the mantra of the masses. It is however one that I believe in and can relate to.
It does present an option to deliver a belief that a happy and a successful marriage is something worth striving for. I know that that almost sounds as if a successful marriage is something that you have to work at to achieve. Well Duh!
True it is not a 9 to 5 factory job, and you should not have to treat it like work, but the fact of the matter is that aside from a little loving ingenuity, one does need to put forth some effort to have growth and success in the relationship.
Mantras are the sayings that people find and repeat to themselves on a daily basis so that it becomes a habit and you know that anything you practice consistently becomes a routine and that routine becomes the habit…one in which you need to become successful and without much notice or fanfare it sometimes appears like magic in the relationship.

A mantra is defined as a sound, a syllable, a word, or group of words that is considered capable of creating a transformation about or within you. That definition goes so far as to describe this transformation as being somewhat spiritual. It goes back in time and to a different culture and meanings that we will not be discussing here at this time. The point being that culture has given us a way of adding to our belief systems some good bad or indifferent terms and challenges to our supposed happiness in our married lives.
Chants, poems, riddles, rhymes…whatever it takes to get you through the day right. Simply pick a phrase you believe in and repeat it to yourself with feelings and you are good to go. You have a mantra.
You know if you were to do the same thing with real and actual words with feelings to your spouse while looking them in the eye on that daily basis, you might just be surprised as to how happy you can be and how extremely happy your spouse will be.
In a successful marriage it comes down to saying everyday, several times a day both to yourself and to your mate the things that positively identify your and their uniqueness. When you feel it deep inside, that abundance of love and security that surrounds you, you will not have to work at anything. Success can be as much of a surety in life as that of your successful marriage.
Here is one of my favorite sayings… “Mantras are energy which can be likened to fire. Fire can cook your lunch or burn down the forest.” – Unknown
Remember that in your daily life as well as your married life, words are powerful, but you have the power to pick and choose the very words that you speak to yourself to begin or conquer the success that you are looking for.
Interestingly, Mantras are sometimes mainly delivered into a mirror so that you can see yourself actually speaking the words and to make sure that you really believe what you are saying.
Imagine doing that face to face with and to the person you love.
Of course my absolute favorite mantra about having a successful marriage comes from me and my time at Legendary You: If the ocean were loving and I were a duck…I would dive to the bottom and never come up.
