You. There's a lot of talk about healing these

days. You must have heard the phrase healing

yourself. But I know from my own experience,

and probably you do as well, that we are not equipped

to heal every wound we carry.

Sometimes we need help. But here's the

thing. Even if you cannot heal something,

you can always soothe it.

Namaste and welcome to yet another episode of

Mahakatha's Meditation Mantras. I'm your podcast

host, Preeti, and today we're speaking about

healing and soothing. If you

remember, whenever you got hurt as a kid, if you

had a fall or you scraped your knee, you always ran to

your parent or your guardian or your sibling, right? You always

ran to them, and you showed them, look, I'm hurt

as a little kid. What exactly did you want from

that? From showing your

wound or explaining how you fell and got hurt

or maybe even crying a little bit? And in

return, what did that elder

person or that sibling do for

you? That you stopped crying and the pain

became a little bearable and you were consoled.

You didn't expect them to heal you,

right? And neither could they heal you.

Oftentimes, all they could do is blow a kiss over

where you've been bruised or wounded, say a few

kind things to you, cheer you up, wipe your

tears, and then offer you something else to pay

attention to. This entire offering

that that person gave you when you went to them wounded

is what is called soothing. They didn't

heal you. They soothed you. And for

that moment when the pain was

excruciating or when the shock was too

much, and when you were emotionally shaken

by that fall or that wound, this

soothing is the first and the

most basic thing you needed.

You needed to be calmed and

soothed before you could be healed.

And then, of course, you got your wound checked, and

you eventually got better. But the next time you are

wounded or the next time a friend of yours is wounded,

you will remember the soothing that was given

to you. Now, as we grow older, we

don't run to our elders or our siblings or

our friends with our wounds. And we don't openly

show it to them or explain to them how we got the

wound. Nor do we openly cry.

But the good news is, through our

life experience, through our

childhood and adulthood until

now, we have gathered a lot of memories

of words and actions that were

soothing to us, that someone did for us.

And we can use that same kindness,

those same words, and that

same gesture of love and patience to

soothe ourselves. Even if we are alone,

or even if we feel alone, we can still

soothe ourselves. In my

opinion, that is one of the most important things

for us to learn in today's day and age

how to self soothe. Now, each

one of us finds different things soothing right.

For some of us, it's reading. For some of us, it's listening to

music or being alone or spending time in

nature. But whatever that

action may be that calms you down, you also need to

talk to yourself and tell yourself those words

of kindness that you remember from your

childhood. What were those things?

You need to tell yourself that everything

is going to be okay.

I know this hurts. I know this is

painful, and I know you didn't

mean for it to feel this way. But it's all

right. It's going to pass.

And if you can be brave for just a little longer,

like you always have been, everything is going to

be okay. You will be back on your

feet in no time to say

it in the ancient language of Sanskrit,

Etadapi Gamishyati, which


this too shall pass. Remember this

chant the next time you feel the need to be

soothed. Another wonderful way of self

soothing is to simply sit back and listen

to a mantra and pay attention to

the sounds. And one of the best mantras you can

listen to for this purpose is the Buddhist mantras

Tayata Om. This is a perfect

example of how a mantra can calm and soothe

the soul, even in times when

it feels like everything's going wrong

or when the soul is going through tremendous

suffering. This is a mantra that has helped several

of our listeners through some of their darkest days.

And just to give you an example, I'm going to read two

comments from the YouTube thread for this mantras.

The first one says this is the most

healing, relaxing, nurturing and

loving thing I have ever heard. It calms

my anxiety and soothes my pain. It's like

being held in the protective arms of a strong and

caring being. I can't explain it really. I

just know that this is right for me. Thank you so

much, dear listener, for sharing how powerfully

connected you feel to this mantra. This is wonderful.

The second one says, this is actually

great. Tears were rolling from my eyes while relieving

me from all the pain of the past. Never has

anything worked so good in my healing journey.

This is a great beginning for me. Thank you so much

for such amazing content. Lots of love

and light to this listener, wherever you are. May

your healing journey continue now. I hope these

comments have inspired you to practice some

relaxed listening of the theatao mantra

yourself. And if you plan on doing that,

I have a special 30% discount that I'm

offering on the THEATA Om Mantra, which you will be able

to avail by using the coupon code that is in the

description. Please go ahead and try to

because you can only soothe others as well

as you can soothe yourself. That's it for today's

episode. I hope you enjoyed this topic. I'm going to be back

soon with a brand new episode and topic that we all

live through and care about. Until then, keep

listening, keep chanting and stay
