I have a question in my mind and I am planning to do a 10 day sankalpa meditation on Lord Ganesha to remove obstacles from my mind.
Please recommend a simple naam japa or a basic mantra. I am hesitating on "Gam Ganapatya namah", because it contains beej mantra.

स्तोत्रं तस्य प्रवक्ष्यामि नामद्वादशकं शुभं। ॐ नमो गणपतये मंत्र एष उदाहृतः २८। गणपतिर्विघ्नराजो लंबतुंडो गजाननः। द्वैमातुरश्च हेरम्ब एकदंतो गणाधिपः २९। विनायकश्चारुकर्णः पशुपालो भवात्मजः। द्वादशैतानि नामानि प्रातरुत्थाय यः पठेत् ३०। विश्वं तस्य भवेद्वश्यं न च विघ्नं भवेत्क्वचित्। महाप्रेताश्शमं यांति पीड्यते व्याधिभिर्न च। सर्वपापाद्विनिर्मुक्तो ह्यक्षयं स्वर्गमश्नुते ३१।

I shall tell you the hymn containing his twelve names (in honour) of him. The mantra is: “Om, Namo Gaṇapataye.” He, who, after getting up in the morning recites these twelve names of him, viz. Gaṇapati, Vighnarāja, Lambatuṇḍa, Gajānana, Dvaimatura, Heramba, Ekadanta, Gaṇādhipa, Vināyaka, Cārukarṇa, Paśupāla (and) Bhavātmaja”, would have the entire universe under his control and would never meet with any difficulty. Great evil spirits become calm; he is not troubled by diseases; being free from all sins, he eternally obtains (i.e. lives in) heaven.

~ Padma Purana, Srishti Khanda, Chapter 63

If you are not comfortable with Mantras owing to Pranava or bijaksharas, You can Just chant the names as provided in this chapter of the Padmapurana
