Chants or mantras are panaceas for the soul. When you choose a series of words and chant them, you affirm those words and allow them to sink into your subconscious. As a result, these healing chants help you shift from a negative to a positive state that has a profound effect in all spheres of your life.

Don’t underestimate the power of healing chants, especially if you want to create the perfect vibration in your life. Here are five chants that can help you achieve just that:
