“I am calm. I am light.”

“I am calm. I am light.”

Those are the mantras Lady Gaga quietly whispered during a 20-minute moment of silence / prayer / meditation session she hosted on Instagram Live for over 25,000 people. It’s a peaceful response to the horrific shooting that took place at the Route 91 Harvest festival on Sunday (Oct. 1) that left more than 58 people dead and 515+ injured.

“My intention is to provide a forum for us all connect to around the world, as a calling for world peace and inner peace. We are one body, I believe we can calm inflammation in the earth by calming each other. #meditation #prayer #silence,” she said in a post prior to the session. “If you choose to meditate with me I will explain how meditation is important in my life and how I will be doing I practice it before we get started. See you then ✌️ It will be very helpful to be in a quiet dark space, but anywhere is fine as long as we’re together.”

Gaga also explained how she alternates between mantras which she finds “very affective for calming down my nervous system.”

“Silence and prayer are all welcome. This is time for you and us to come together in unity and peace.”

The session has since ended, but you can re-watch a video of it / participate here.

Thank you for meditating/sitting in silence/praying w me. Meditation really improves my mental health and reminds me it's important to stay calm so I can feel safe in my body. We are all one body, and the calmer we are, and the more we find inner peace, the more the world will too. You know the saying. "We are the World." ✌️???

Here are some "mantras" I will be using, if you choose to meditate with me I will explain how I use them. I usually alternate between two and find them very affective for calming down my nervous system. Otherwise silence and prayer are all welcome. This is time for you and us to come together in unity and peace.
