My Experiments With Mantras For Inner Peace
“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
— Roald Dahl
My spiritual journey started with meditation, and that followed with mantras for inner peace. A period of 2 years, from 2005 to 2007, was quite bad for me. During that time, I felt as if the whole world is against me. During that time, I turned towards meditation and entered the world of Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Dr. Brian Weiss, and many others. I read every book written by these experts. Suddenly, my perception of this world and life changed. Motivated by my newly found wisdom, I thought, just reading is not enough, and I need to exercise the practical side of spirituality. I felt as if some invisible force is guiding me. Interesting coincidences were becoming a part of this new journey. Once, we were walking on a busy part of downtown Wellington known as Courtney place. I saw a poster for the movie “Samsara” at St. James Theatre.
I went in out of curiosity. It was free, courtesy Bramah Kumaris. Bramah Kumaris is a cult where they teach about the spiritual side of our life. The only condition to watch this free movie was a simple registration process. The lady at the counter exclaimed when she saw my address. Oh, we are neighbors! One of our centers is on your street. You are at 57, and we are at 23. She asked me to feel free to come and join their seven days free meditation course, AKA 7 days Raj Yoga course. Anyway, we watched this incredible movie and came back home. By that time, I had made up my mind that I would not get a better opportunity if I wish to learn meditation.
I was pumped up on Tuesday and lightly asked my 12 years old daughter whether she wants to join me. I was over the moon when she quickly said, Yes, why not. Now, it is a tiny thing but your confidence catapults to a new height if your kids support you when you try to do something new. We reached the center at 6 PM, and Sister Gabriel welcomed us. We were roughly 15 of us, and the class began with sister Gabriel’s proactive introduction to Raj Yoga. Her lecture was followed by 30 minutes of guided meditation. It was out of the world, sensational experience. Meditation was my first step towards spiritual life. I completed seven days of Raj Yoga Course and felt very satisfied with the outcome. The atmosphere of these centers is beyond any imagination. So much compassion, a near ego-free lifestyle, and sometimes, you wonder whether these people ever get angry or sad.
Riding on my satisfaction with my newly found spiritual lifestyle, I started feeling a lot better and the stress of those bad two years period was already a thing of the past. In fact, instead of cursing that period, I started feeling thankful for that stressful period because it opened my life to new horizons.
Deepak Chopra’s literature convinced me of the fact that everything in the world is all about energy. All that exists, be it a physical matter, an ideology, a feeling, or anything else that you can name, are the result of vibrations or energy. Now, if everything is energy, then every frequency of the vibration must be giving different results. That result might be the change in the properties of matter, change in our behavior, change in the results of our hard work, or anything that you can conceive of. So, it is the frequencies of the energy that controls the world.
And that is what Mantra Yoga is all about.
I researched various frequency range bands and found that our conscious, subconscious, relaxed, and sleeping state of mind depends on the band of frequency governing the mind. These bands of frequencies are categorized as Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Theta.
Alpha: 7–12 Hz. We feel relaxed in this state, and this state is excellent for creativity.
Beta: 13–40 Hz. We are active in this state of mind.
Delta: 0–4 Hz. We are in our sleeping state.
Theta: 4–7 Hz. This state is defined as a meditative state.
If you do your research about theta state, you will come to know that this frequency range of 4–7 Hz triggers our subconscious mind, and that is a piece of great news because Law Of Attraction has proven that your affirmations work most effectively when they come out of your subconscious state of mind. Anyway, I further googled and found a few free MP3 audio files having the sound of frequencies ranging from 4 to 7 Hz. I listened to MP3 files using my headphone. And that was my Eureka moment. Will mantra chanting be more effective in theta state? Nobody has tried it yet. So, finally, my experiments with Mantras has begun. So far, I have only followed what others said, but this will be my first experiment of my own.
Yesterday, I chanted “Om Shreem Brzee” with my theta state frequency in the background. I will do it for a few days, and I will complete this blog post with the result of my experiment.

I wrote this post on 18th July and left it with a note that I will complete it after seeing the manifestation of my new experiment. I think the time has come to finish this post.
As I had written initially, the period between 2005 and 2007 was pretty bad for me. In addition to all the wrong things, I had a minor heart attack in 2006. Well, last week, I was checking the outgoings in my bank account, and I saw that my insurance premium has gone to a whopping $450 per month. In New Zealand, it keeps on going up every year, mainly if you have acquired a new health-related issue. I decided to call them to reduce my insurance cover.
The help desk guy told me that your insurance covers you for life, trauma, and partial disability. I asked to reduce my life cover and remove injury and partial disability cover. He said, why do you want to remove the trauma cover because that is the one that most people claim. I told him about my heart attack in 2006, and he was surprised why I did not claim it. And he sent me a few forms to fill and said all your medical records would be available in your hospital. Get them from there, attach them with the claim form and email me back. It is difficult for the bank to accept a claim after ten years, but we can try. I did what he asked me to do and forgot about it as he was also looking a bit doubtful anyway. I thought he is just trying to be helpful. Nevertheless, they asked for more papers related to my health, to which I said it is impossible to dig those records after 10–15 years, and I am not going to waste my time. For me, that was the end of my communication with the bank regarding my claim.
But guess what! I get a phone call from the bank that my claim has been accepted, and they will let me know the details once the payment is processed. And can you guess what the amount was? It was a whopping $110000. Now, many of you might say, miracles do take place, or it was a sheer coincidence of calling the right person at the right time or something like that. But I look at this incident differently. When we so-called knowledgeable people do not understand any phenomenon of our universe, we give it a name like a miracle, coincidence, luck, fate, etc. But tell me one thing, when the whole world, moon, sun, stars, etc., are moving and existing with so much accurate mathematical precision, will it not be stupidity to say, Oh! It was just a sheer miracle! Is it not being too dumb to say that?
Whatever you might say, but I attribute this so-called “Miracle” to the power of mantras.
I come to two conclusions:
1) Chanting of Mantras for inner peace have a more pronounced effect in the theta state.
2) When I created the following two videos, my mantras were further empowered by creative visualization.

I wrote this post a few years ago and I am updating this in 2020. The reason is that I came to know something new. I came to know that because of some strange reasons, Shreem Brzee mantra is not working very effectively for everybody. When I did more research, I was enlightened that Shreem Brzee doesn’t work well if your Manipur Chakra is weak. I won’t go into the details of Chakras as I plan to write a separate post on that. But I will give you a link about how to strengthen your Manipur Chakra and you may find it here.
