What are the benefits of Chakra affirmations?
Words and thoughts contain Energy, and they should be used with good intent.
We all know that like attracts like, so whatever type of frequency a chakra is on will attract that same energy vibration. Since chakras are spinning vortices, the energy is then returned to the Universe via this same motion. Then, through the Law of Attraction we will vibrate on the frequencies we are calling in.
Ideally, if all of our chakras are healthy and aligned we are vibrating at the optimal frequency to attract abundance in each aspect of our lives. However this may not be the case if we have blockages in even one chakra.
Fortunately there are many ways to align our energy vortexes, and Chakra Affirmations are one way to do this. These simple phrases can be repeated at any time such as during exercize, meditation or even when driving to the grocery store!
Lets first look at what our 7 main chakras represent, and why it is important to keep their energy flowing harmoniously.
MULADHARA, the ROOT Chakra is located at the base of our spine and is represented by the color red. Our primal instinct is housed here and is what connects us to our stability and security in life. It develops through our early family dynamic, and is highly influenced by how we felt as a tiny child. It is the energy recycling chakra that MUST be stable and balanced so that the other six chakras can function correctly as well. It is the chakra that grounds us and gives us feelings of safety and abundance in the world. If it is unbalanced we will suffer from anxiety and end up feeling lost or afraid.
Affirmations for the ROOT Chakra:
I am SAFE
I am SECURE
I am PROTECTED
I am GROUNDED
I am STRONG
I have ABUNDANCE
I am HEALTHY
I will SURVIVE
I am PEACEFUL
I am CONFIDENT
You can use crystals in the RED family such as BLOODSTONE and CARNELIAN and essential oils of PATCHOULI when repeating these affirmations.
SVADHISHTHANA, the 2nd, or SACRAL Chakra, is the center of CREATIVITY and is a foundation chakra. It is located around the navel area and represented by the color orange. When this chakra is balanced we will have healthy boundaries and relationships, and our sexuality is supported. We can express ourselves in a positive way and have creative outlets and physical interests. If unbalanced we can become unmotivated, bored and restless and lack the ability to form healthy relationships. We will have low libido, and possibly lack self esteem, which only perpetuates the inability to attract abundance in any form.
AFFIRMATIONS for the SACRAL Chakra are:
I am UNIQUE
I am WORTHY
I am CONFIDENT
I can EXPRESS myself in a healthy way
I can Express my SEXUALITY in a healthy way
I am MOTIVATED
I have healthy BOUNDARIES
I have healthy RELATIONSHIPS
Use ORANGE crystals such as Citrine, Amber and Carnelian and Essential oils of Clary Sage or Ylang Ylang when repeating affirmations to further facilitate balancing.
MANIPURA, or the Solar Plexus Chakra is located around the upper abdomen. It is represented by the color YELLOW. It is the center for our self confidence and personal power. If this chakra is aligned we will be confident in our decision making and feel motivated to achieve our goals in life. If out of balance we will feel indecisive or overwhelmed and become obsessive over small details. We may have trouble putting plans into motion because of lack of motivation or belief in our own decisions. We will be sensitive to criticism and fear rejection so much that we are afraid to stand up for what we believe in or speak our truth.
AFFIRMATIONS for the Solar Plexus Chakra:
I have PURPOSE
I have CONFIDENCE
I have PERSONAL POWER
I am CONNECTED to self
I accept MYSELF
I FORGIVE myself for past mistakes
I am MOTIVATED to pursue my goals
I am CAPABLE of achieving my lifes purpose
I VALUE my own opinion
Use the crystals topaz, citrine and tiger-eye and essential oils of clairy sage for further balancing.
ANAHATA or Heart Chakra is located in the upper chest area and is represented by the color green. It is the center of our love and compassion for others and ourselves. It is unique in that it is the central chakra connecting the lower and upper three chakras, therefore it is very important in balancing physical and spiritual energies. It is very important in emotional development and inherent wisdom. If balanced you will have a much easier time with self acceptance as well as with unconditional love and respect for others. If imbalances occur within this area you will be critical or resentful of others and have a hard time with "letting people in" your life. You can become isolated and find it hard to form meaningful relationships. This can occur from previous betrayals or anything that has hurt you emotionally.
AFFIRMATIONS for the Heart Chakra:
I love myself despite my flaws
I love others unconditionally
I release all resentment towards others
I forgive others
Crystals to open the heart chakra will be on the love vibrational frequency, and are usually pink or green in color, such as Rose Quartz, Green Aventurine, Jade, or green calcite. You can meditate with these or make crystal grids in your sacred space.
Essential Oils of Sandalwood, lavender, orange and Jasmine will also be beneficial, as well as wearing green clothing.
VISHUDDHA, or Throat Chakra is the fifth primary Chakra and is located in the neck area. It is represented by the color blue. It is the chakra that governs your aspect of self expression, speaking your truth, and the ability to feel confident in communication during relationships. If balanced you can express your feelings honestly as well as listen to and respect others opinions. If blocked you will either talk excessively, gossip, lie or feel anxious during self expression, and will be unable to stay true to yourself when expressing your needs and opinions. You may ultimately become a "people pleaser," which only leads to more issues with self authenticity.
AFFIRMATIONS for the Throat Chakra:
I communicate my true needs confidently
I set clear boundaries
I respect others opinions
I am an honest listener
Crystals for balancing the Throat Chakra are blue in color. Lapis lazuli, turquoise aquamarine, and Sodalite are a few examples. Essential Oils of sage, cypress, peppermint, tea tree or lavender will help with balance in this chakra.
AJNA or Third Eye Chakra is also known as the brow chakra and is the sixth chakra. It is located between the eyebrows and is represented by the color Indigo. It is the center for intuition, imagination and higher consciousness. If open you will be more in touch with mind body and soul and will have a heightened sense of self and wisdom. People who are spiritually aware and enlightened have an open brow chakra. It is also associated with the Pineal gland and your "sixth sense." If imbalances occur, we will fear the acknowledgements of truths that hold us back on our own lifes journey. We fear criticisms and our own shadow sides, so we cannot face our own limiting beliefs and old paradigms thus stalling our own enlightenment.
AFFIRMATIONS for the Third Eye Chakra are:
I am a spiritual being
I trust my intuition
I have and trust my own wisdom
I connect myself to Source
I choose to release all limiting beliefs
I lift myself to a higher level of awareness
Crystals for the Third Eye are Amethyst, Moldavite, black obsidian, and purple fluorite. Essential oils of Sandalwood, Clary sage, and Cypress will also help with blocked third eyes.
SAHASRARA or the Crown Chakra is the seventh Chakra. This energy center is directly related to thought and our connection to the Universal Consciousness, unity and SELF. It is represented by the color purple. When balanced you will be interested in a higher level of understanding and enlightenment. You want to realize lifes meaning, your purpose and why you are here in this reality. If imbalances occur, you can become excessively spiritual and "out of touch" with the realities and mundanity of daily life.
AFFIRMATIONS for the Crown Chakra:
I choose to learn from life experiences
I am part of the Divine
I am grateful for all the goodness in my life
I am at peace
I am connected to the wisdom of the Universe
I live in the present moment
I trust my intuitions
I cherish my spirit
Crystals for balance within this chakra include Lepidolite, clear calcite, selenite, Charoite, and Indigo Gabbro. Essential oils of Lime, and Frankincense will be beneficial for balance in this chakra as well.
