article-migration-image-chakras_1.jpg

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.”

3 Spiritual Baths to Cleanse Your Aura From Negative Energy

Regularly cleansing your aura and your personal energy is an essential act. Whether or not you know it, you come into contact with various people and environments, all of which have their own energy vibrations. Not all of these frequencies are high and positive.

Thus, your energy field is constantly taking in and putting out vibrations, some of the vibrations (including your own thoughts, as well as external influences) are low and will bring you down if left unchecked. While our energy body is constantly readjusting itself to bring our energy back into harmony, the negative energies can linger and build up over time. A monthly salt water bath is an easy and very relaxing way to cleanse your aura of negative energy.

We’ve mentioned other methods before, so why a bath? It’s because it’s a great ritual that combines to tie in body and spirit. When you immerse yourself in a ritual bath, you are participating in an initiation to open yourself up spiritually. 

Ritual bathing cleanses you from physical grime and negative spiritual grime, thus purifying both your body and your aura. It is a signal that you are willing to listen to your Higher Self and begin to trust something outside of your rational mind. It indicates that you are open to ask the universe to transform what you believe needs to be changed within yourself.

What is a Spiritual Bath?

We’ve mentioned other methods before, so why a bath? It’s because it’s a great ritual that combines body and spirit. When you immerse yourself in a ritual bath, you are participating in an initiation to open yourself up spiritually. 

Ritual bathing cleanses you from physical grime and negative spiritual grime, thus purifying both your body and your aura. It is a signal that you are willing to listen to your Higher Self and begin to trust something outside of your rational mind. It indicates that you are open to ask the universe to transform what you believe needs to be changed within yourself.

Taking a spiritual or ritual bath is meant to cleanse and protect a person spiritually; therefore, making it different from a normal bath you might do every day. There are very specific directions to follow in order to maximize the effect. Among these instructions is not using any soap, shampoo, or bath oil, etc. Once you step into the water, you are entering a spiritual experience, so it’s important to distinguish regular bathing from ritual bathing.

Benefits of Spiritual Bathing

Though they are different, spiritual bathing or ritual bathing can have great effects on your physical wellbeing, as well. According to Gateways to Inner Peace, here are just a few benefits:

  • The skin is an organ of elimination, and a saltwater soak will draw toxins and heavy metals from the tissues.

 

  • The essential trace minerals your body needs are absorbed through the skin to enhance your health

 

  • Skin conditions can be aided, as bacteria and other debris are also drawn from the skin, leaving it feeling fresh and rejuvenated

 

 

  • Circulation is increased, which your body can always use

Other important notes before getting started: this first bath is to be used only once a month, as it is very strong. It’s recommended to try it on a Friday close to a full moon for the best results. Energy therapist Lidia Frederico also advises, “do NOT prepare or have the bath around 6 am, 12 noon, 6 pm, 12 midnight. This– this includes half an hour before & afterward (so NOT between 5:.30-6:.30 or 11:.30-12:.30 for both am & pm)!”
