ā€˛VISITING THE MONASTRIES, HEARING MONKS CHANTING AND PRAYING WHEREVER I WENT, DEEPLY RESONATED WITH ME.. - SPIRITUALLY I FELT HOME.ā€¯
Ever since I was a little girl, the practice of praying was part of my life. I had always found true healing in it and sincerely believed in the power of prayers.
In my early twenties, I went to Nepal for the first time.
Visiting the monasteries, hearing monks chanting and praying wherever I went and seeing little traces of their religion in every corner of the streets, deeply resonated with me and spiritually I felt home.
Due to my intense yoga practice I would naturally come across many mantras during the following years but it was not until I got pregnant with my first child, that I felt a real connection to certain mantras and became aware of the impact that a Mantra could have.. Once I had gotten into this whole vibe I realized that I was no longer doing this for my child only ..
Then I got pregnant with my second child and intensified the practice, started to meditate. The ritual of reciting mantras on a daily basis became more and more important. In the beginning It felt very personal and intimate, nothing I would wanna expose on stage..
But after a while, the daily mantra practice turned into a natural habit. I would sing mantras all day wherever I went.. and all of a sudden, I felt this urge to share these mantras on stage.
What I enjoy most is, that there is no separation between being on stage and the audience in front of me. In that moment, we are all connected and I believe each and everyone is connected to themselves. The beauty of mantra is, that it is based on vibration. We donā€™t necessarily need to know what they mean, we receive the information simply because vibration is the language of our body, mind and soul.
Experiencing this kind of honest unity is one of the most beautiful experiences I have made so far.
