Mantras relieve stress. The rhythm and sound of the chanting moves energy throughout the body. The movement of energy regulates the chemicals in our brains. It blocks stress hormones and releases endorphins. They regulate heart rate. Mantras enhance positive alpha, gamma, delta, in the brainwaves—the brainwaves that kick in during relaxation. Chanting increases immune functions, and lower blood pressure. The sound of the mantra literally drowns out the negative voices in our heads. When the negative thoughts are suppressed, the mind has room for positive thoughts. It is a free and easy way to manage thoughts and achieve physical and mental welfare. Mantras ease fear. People with phobias often adapt mantras to center on during times of fear.
