Even in the best of times, it’s easy to get knocked out of alignment with the energy of peace. Thankfully, we have lots of tools that can help us reconnect to stillness and joy.

One of my favorite tools is to meditate with a mantra. In the video below, I show you a simple technique you can practice almost anywhere, anytime, with your eyes open or closed.

How to meditate with a mantra

In just one minute, this beautiful practice can bring you back to a place of peace. I demonstrate it in the short video below, which is from my free Anxiety Relief Workshop.

Even if you have just one minute to spare, this easy practice will help you. The next time you feel like you’ve been shaken from a place of peace and happiness, turn to this simple technique.

How this mantra meditation works

You can practice this technique anywhere. You can be sitting, standing, walking or lying down. You can have your eyes open or closed. It’s extremely versatile!

For this practice, you combine a mantra and a mudra.

The mantra: “Peace begins with me”

A mantra is a word or phrase you repeat silently or out loud while meditating. It’s a single, pointed focus that calms your mind and shifts your vibrational frequency.

In this meditation, the mantra is: “Peace begins with me.”

The mudra for “Peace begins with me”

You repeat the mantra while using the mudra, or hand position. For this meditation, you touch your thumb to a different fingertip on each hand while repeating the words of the mantra.

  • Thumb to index finger: Peace
  • Thumb to middle finger: Begins
  • Thumb to ring finger: With
  • Thumb to pinkie finger: Me

Tweet: Peace begins with me. @gabbybernstein #spiritjunkie

Repeat the mantra-mudra combination for about one minute or longer.

You can use this practice anywhere, anytime. Use it while taking a walk, to relax in the midst of a stressful workday or to stop a spiral of negative thoughts.

Teach it to your kids, too! They’ll pick it up easily and will then have a lifelong tool they can use to self-regulate.

  1. Hi Gabby. Currently listening to your super attractor audio book – your experience in regards to your grandma and your connection with spirit guides/angels has brought me to happy tears. I have been looking for signs wondering why I haven’t had them myself – overthinking at work when trying to manifest. I noticed after listening I started to see dandelion seeds everywhere around me – outside, landing on me in the house. I mentioned this to a friend before saying I just can’t get this right. I am not fully releasing to the universe even though I am absolutely sure what i desire is coming. At this moment I received a text with a link to your super soul session on youtube. The cover picture was a dandelion – just WOW and thank you form the bottom of my heart. xx

  2. I love this Gabby, I’m going to be using it with teaching my first Yoga ZOOM class online. I live in Panama and so when I teach to my Spanish students I realized I can use it too: “Paz Empieza Conmingo” separating the con + migo to do the full hand movements.

    Almost celebrating 3 years of sobriety I chuckle to myself that I just started following your work so closely now. I suppose I am ready, thus you appeared, as they say. I mean I always knew you were out there but never was inquisitive. Your work has been the guiding light for me during this time and I’m anxious to start the meditation challenge, am reading Judgement Detox (which I will probably do once a month from here until forever) and you’ve even inspired me to study with Abraham and ACIM.

    THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart.

    1. Amazing, Deirdre. Congratulations on your sobriety! So glad this technique resonates with you and that your spiritual practice is supporting you! xoxo

  3. Hi Gabby – Love this! I purchased your Super attractor audible book but cannot find the daily mantras anywhere. Where can I find these – it may be lengthy having to pause and write them down as there are a few 🙂 thanks x
