I have been chanting daily but I only see more negative things happening in my life. Am I not chanting it properly? Or is chanting of mantra a hoax?
There are three reasons why this has happened.
1. Lets say you started mantra for a job promotion but suddenly after 10 days you lost that job. Yes, you lost your job because of the mantra. Why do you need a job promotion? Is it for more money, more benefits or job recognition? You have lost your job which means God is letting you know that this not a right job or not a right place for you. There is a better opportunity waiting for you with even better benefits, with even more money and with best recognition. Do not stop if something bad happens. Complete 40 days of chanting the mantra and you will be definitely receiving your best gift from God. God has, is and will take care of you. Just leave all your worries at His feet.
2. God is testing if you really want the desire to happen. When a serious problem crops during this 40 day chanting period, request Him to not to test anymore and assure Him that this is what you really want and that you are ready to receive with a clean heart. Do not worry. He is working for you.
3. You are not doing it properly. Your mind is not fixed on the mantra or on the God. You are not doing it with faith. You have doubts whether it works or not. You are doing just because you read somewhere that it works without any faith. You do it forcefully just to achieve the materialistic desire. This never ever works. You must change your attitude now.
Do not worry about the pronunciation of the mantra. All you need to have is faith, devotion and discipline.
