Balancing Your Chakras with Affirmations


By: Gaia Staff  |  July 3, 2014

As you may realize by now, there are lots of ways to balance your chakras. Did you know that affirmations is one of the most powerful ones? It’s all because our thoughts create our reality, and by regularly practicing positive chakra balancing affirmations, we can achieve results in our lives that we couldn’t even imagine!

If you need a refresher on chakras, the word “chakra” derives from the Sanskrit language and literally translates into “spinning wheel.” Understanding our chakras has its roots even in ancient yogic traditions. There are seven major chakras or energy centers in our body, each of which corresponding to a particular color-coded vibrational frequency in the universe which influences our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. When our chakras are perfectly aligned with the universal flow of energy, every aspect of our life becomes harmonious and joyful. In balance with your chakras, you reclaim perfect health, and your love and passion for life is made new again.

Ready to get started? Sit or lie down in a quiet place and focus on the location of each chakra. You can say these out loud, or you can silently meditate on each affirmation; whatever you are most comfortable with. Be sure to visualize a wheel spinning face-up in a clockwise direction in the specific color frequency of each chakra as you proceed:

  1. Root Chakra

The root chakra is located at the base of our spine and corresponds to the color red. This chakra relates to our basic human instinct for survival, security and stability.

Affirmation:

“I am a divine being of light, and I am peaceful, protected and secure.”

  1. Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is located just below our navel in our lower abdominal region. The color of this chakra is a deep, saturated orange and relates to reproduction on a physical level, creativity and joy and relationships on an emotional level and our energy and passions on a spiritual level.

Affirmation:

“I am radiant, beautiful and strong and enjoy a healthy and passionate life.”

  1. Solar Plexus Chakra

This chakra is located above our navel and directly in our stomach area. The solar plexus chakra therefore plays a vital role in digestion and glows in a bright yellow color. This chakra deals with growth and pertains to issues of the intellect, personal power, control and spiritual evolution.

Affirmation:

“I am positively empowered and successful in all my ventures.”

  1. Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is located in the centre of the chest and spins with the vibrant green color of spring. This chakra is one of the most important meditation tools for cleansing and clearing spiritual imbalances. The key issues related to the heart chakra are unconditional love, compassion and wellbeing.

Affirmation:

“Love is the answer to everything in life, and I give and receive love effortlessly and unconditionally.”

  1. Throat Chakra

This chakra is centered in our throat and exudes a pale blue light. The throat chakra governs our ability to express and communicate clear thoughts and ideas. It is also related to truth, maturity, independence and the ability to trust others.

Affirmation:

“My thoughts are positive, and I always express myself truthfully and clearly.”

  1. Third Eye Chakra

The third eye chakra is positioned in the center of our forehead, between our eyebrows. Also known as the brow chakra, it spins in a deep saturated dark blue hue and helps us tap into our inner guidance and divine vision. This chakra deals with developing intuitive clarity, releasing repressed emotions and attaining self realization.

Affirmation:

“I am tuned into the divine universal wisdom and always understand the true meaning of life situations.”

  1. Crown Chakra

The crown chakra is located at the top of our head or in the crown area and corresponds to the violet color. The role of this chakra is based in awakening consciousness and attaining enlightenment through the integration of the self into the one universal form of intelligence.

Affirmation:

“I am complete and one with the divine energy.”
