It is said that women generally have good intuitions. However, with

mantras these intuitions can be heightened. Men can also become more

intuitive using the mantras. Mantras make your mind more focused and

able to receive the signals being sent from the other parts of the body. It

also makes them more aware of everything going on around them.

In addition, it is said that mantras help in tapping into the ability to be

intuitive practically. When you chant the mantras, the tongue normally taps

on the roof of the mouth. This awakens some signals that are sent to the

part of the body referred to as the hypothalamus; this in turn sends these

positive signals to the rest of the body and mind.

The more you recite your mantras, the more the brain is awakened through

this tapping. The subconscious and unconscious parts of your brain become

conscious. This gives a sense of awareness about your environment and also

your feelings. This also makes a person more aware of the people around

them. It shifts focus from a person’s needs and desires and concentrates on

what others feel and want. This in turn can help a person become more

sensitive to others people feelings.

Mantra helps you to calm your mind and be able to focus on what other

things are happening around you. This is one of the reasons why the

intuitive abilities of a person become more heightened.
