If you tune into Iyanla Fix My Life, you know that the show’s host, Iyanla Vanzant, always has a lesson for all of us to learn.
But for those moments when things get hard, the celebrated spiritual teacher has some mantras that she uses in her own life. She broke them down for us in this ESSENCE video before she embarked on her “Acts of Faith Remix Tour,” which celebrates the updated 25th-anniversary edition of her internationally acclaimed bestseller.
Here are her top mantras
“There Is No Thing To Fear”
“If I could just etch that on everybody’s brain to understand there’s no thing to fear, “she says. “Just keep moving, breathing…”
“…Because when people get upset they stop breathing,” she says.
“All Things Are Lessons That God Would Have Me Learn”
“That thing right there…ooh that has saved me when I really want to bite somebody’s face off…” Vanzant says of this manta.
“Today, I Begin A New Life”
“Doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, last week, last month. Today, right here, right now, this moment…I begin a new life.”
