The Chakras are spots throughout our body that influences our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. They hold certain messages for us, and enable us to connect to these messages.
We are at peace when our chakras are balanced and sending us the right messages. But this doesn’t always happen naturally; as we go through life, we encounter a variety of experiences, which will inevitably push us off balance sometimes.
Not to mention the messages we pick up from childhood and such. So throughout our spiritual journeys, we must always come back and check up on our chakras to make sure that everything is working together in harmony. These messages can help anyone find the tools they need to lead a healthy and balanced life.
Tapping into the power of positive affirmations is one of the most effective ways to balance our chakras. Our thoughts create our reality, and by regularly practising positive chakra balancing affirmations, we can achieve astonishing results in our lives.
Chances are when you read through these affirmations you will feel connected to some more than others; this means you probably have work to do in this area (or that it’s a place you did work on in the past, which means it wouldn’t hurt to reinforce the messages).
I chose to arrange this starting from the Crown Chakra and working down to the Root Chakra, as I benefit from working my way down in a way of gradually grounding myself.
But if you are a person that would benefit more in being less attached to the world, then it would be helpful to work from the Root up to the Crown.
Feel free to go from top to bottom and back up again. Make it your own healing ritual and you will be left feeling centered and more at peace with yourself.
The Crown Chakra (located at the top of your head), honors spiritual connectedness. Imagine that it is the place in your body that connects you to the world above (a.k.a. the abstract and metaphysical).
Sometimes, we may feel that this connection is broken, or shaky at the least, and therefore have a feeling of being too connected to the physical world and not enough spiritual inspiration.
To heal the Crown Chakra, read these affirmations while focusing on the spot at the top of your head. Imagine a white or purple colored light connecting you to that which is outside of yourself.
(Note: while doing these meditations it is always helpful to rest your hand, or place something, on the body part indicated. This will direct the energy of the affirmations directly to the spot and help you focus clearly on the area.)
“I am part of the divine.”
“I seek to understand, and learn from my life experiences.”
“I am connected and listen to the wisdom of the universe.”
“I am one with the universe. I cannot detach from it, as it cannot detach from me.”
“I cherish my spirit.”
“I am open to divine wisdom.”
“I live in the present moment.”
“My life moves with grace.”
The Brow Chakra (a.k.a the third eye, located in the center of your forehead), honors and governs our psychic and intuition abilities. When our brow chakra is wounded we may feel that we are disconnected from our inner wisdom, and it’s power to guide our life. An inability to see our own fears, and learn important lessons from others may also be present.
To heal the Brow Chakra, focus on these affirmations while imagining an indigo light in the center of your forehead.
“I am in touch with my inner guidance.”
“I listen to my deepest wisdom.”
“I am wise, intuitive, and connected with my inner guide.”
“I nurture my spirit.”
“I trust my intuition.”
“I forgive the past and learn what was there for me to learn.”
“I am grateful for the goodness in my life.”
“I am open to inspiration and ideas.”
“I am the source of my truth.”
“My life moves effortlessly.”
The Throat Chakra governs communication, expression, and creativity. One who feels that they cannot, or do not, have the right to express their truth or opinions, may have a wounded throat chakra that is blocking them.
To heal the Throat Chakra, touch your throat and imagine it filling up with a blue light. After reading these affirmations, imagine your throat filling up with your truths, opinions, or any blocked expression you feel, and breathe it out until you can no longer feel a blockage.
Since the Throat Chakra is located in the vocal chords, try to use your voice as much as possible during this meditation, whether it’s reading the affirmations out loud or just humming a quick tune to get your vocal chords vibrating.
“I am open, clear, and honest, in my communication.”
“I have a right to speak my truth.”
“I communicate my feelings with ease.”
“I have a strong will that let’s me resolve my challenges.”
“I express myself through creativity, writing, or art.”
“I nourish my spirit through creativity.”
“I live an authentic life.”
“I have integrity.”
“I can share my experiences and wisdom.”
“I listen to my body and feelings to know what my truth is.”
The Heart Chakra (located in the center of the chest), honors the heart and emotions. When our heart chakra is off-balance we may experience “over-loving” to the extent of suffocation, jealousy, feelings of abandonment, anger, bitterness, or loneliness.
To heal the Heart Chakra, place palm or object over your chest (close to the heart), and imagine a healing green (or emerald) light glowing in your chest.
“I deeply, and completely, love and accept myself.”
“I am open to love.”
“I nurture my inner child.”
“I am wanted and loved.”
“I live in balance; in a state of grace and gratefulness.”
“I forgive myself.”
“I am connected with other human beings.”
“I am grateful for the challenges that help me transform and open up to love.”
“I am open to love and kindness.”
The Solar Plexus Chakra (located under the chest area, and above the navel), honors strength, identity, and life force. When imbalanced a person may have issues with personal power and self-esteem. The inner critic comes out in this imbalance, and fears of rejection, criticism, and judgment may be present.
To heal the Solar Plexus Chakra, imagine a yellow light filling up your insides between the chest and naval. Since this chakra deals with self-respect, sit (or if standing, stand) up straight and feel the power filling you up as you read these affirmations.
“I love and accept myself.”
“I am strong and courageous.”
“I am worthy of love, kindness, and respect.”
“I am proud of my achievements.”
“I honor my self.”
“I choose healthy relationships.”
“I direct my own life.”
“I am free to choose in any situation.”
“I seek opportunities for personal and spiritual growth.”
The Sacral Chakra (located below the navel by the reproductive organs), honors the body, sexuality, and pleasurable experiences. When our sacral chakra is off balance we are blocked in our sexuality, commitment, and the ability to enjoy experiences or take care of our body properly.
To heal the Sacral Chakra, place hand over your lower abdomen and fill it up with an orange light.
“I love and accept my body.”
“I have healthy boundaries.”
“I am open to experiencing the present moment through my senses.”
“I am passionate.”
“I feel pleasure and abundance with every breath I take.”
“I nourish my body with healthy food and clean water.”
“I know how to take care of my needs.”
“I value and respect my body.”
“I allow myself to experience pleasure.”
“My sexuality is sacred.”
The Root Chakra (located at the base of your spine/tail bone), honors the earth and our basic survival and physical needs. When our root chakra is out of whack, we may feel very disconnected from the earth and our earthly needs. A feeling of being unsafe or floaty in the world may also be present.
To heal the Root Chakra, feel a red light filling up the root spot and imagine it radiating into the earth; grounding and connecting you to your surroundings.
“I feel deeply rooted.”
“I am connected to my body.”
“I feel safe and secure.”
“Just like a tree or a star, I have the right to be here.”
“I have what I need.”
“I am grounded, stable, and standing on my own two feet.”
“I nourish my body with healthy food, water, exercise, relaxation, and connection to nature.”
“I trust in the goodness of life.”
“I make choices that are healthy and good for me.”
“I trust myself.”
These meditations can be done at any time of the day. Find a time and place that feels best to you, and repeat it as many times as you’d like. It can only bring more healing, the more it’s done. If you believe in the power of healing, you will surely notice the immense changes that positive affirmations can have on your spirit. I hope these meditations help you center yourself and lead a healthier, more balanced life.
