Living your best life means you are happy, fulfilled, and open to infinite possibilities. When your mind gets stuck in a negative rut, you’re creating negative things over and over again.

Stop your mind in its tracks by eliminating these 5 phrases from your vocabulary. Using the corresponding Kundalini yoga mantra (either chanting them, or just listening to them), will help you change your patterns lickety-split!

1.) I can’t.

This phrase means you’ve given away your power. You CAN. You are the infinite creative potential of the Universe made manifest. (Seem a little high minded? It’s still true. And anything less is you settling.)

Stand in your own power with the mantra Ajai Alai (Click here to find out the full mantra. It’s a doozy, but you can do it! This is the toughest one, I promise…it’s downhill from here!)

2.) I hate you.

This means you’ve forgotten that there is no “other”. All is you. Everything and everyone who comes into your experience is a mirror for you of some aspect of yourself that you are healing.

Take advantage of this opportunity when someone bothers you…and heal that part of you that exists within them, as abhorrent as it may seem to you that this could be true.

Yogi Bhajan gave us two really important pieces of advice: “If you can’t see God in all, you can’t see God at all.” and “Recognize that the other person is you.”

Love all of yourself, heal all of yourself with the mantra “Ong Sohung.” (I am Thou.) Unifying with All-That-Is creates a wonderful platform from which to live your best life.

3.) I’m not good enough.

Yes, you are. Anything less is a lie you are telling yourself. Snap out of it! You are a magnificent being of light.

Remind yourself with the mantra “Beautiful am I, Bountiful am I, Blissful am I”.

4.) That’s impossible.

Nothing is impossible. But it might be difficult. It will be easier if you remove some of the obstacles between you and your goals.

Try the mantra for removing obstacles in your path: “Aad Such Jugaad Such Hai Bhai Such Nanak Hosee Bhai Such.”

5.) It’s my family’s fault.

Harboring blame doesn’t help you live your best life. Whatever your family has done, and it might have been a biggie, you’re going to have to let it go, so you can fly.

Luckily, there’s a mantra for that. Ant Na Siftee is a powerful mantra to release family karma. It can remove patterns and family issues with the force of a thunderbolt.

So the next time your family is chucking turkeys at each other’s heads during Thanksgiving, try singing them this mantra.

Watch and see if it doesn’t stop everyone in their tracks, turkeys in hands, and mouths hanging open. Plus it will make you feel good, too.
