Chakra is a Sanskrit word which literally translates into a spinning wheel. According to ancient yogic traditions, there are seven major chakras which are energy centers in our body. Today I would like to show you how affirmations can balance your chakras.
The Seven Main Chakras
As I mentioned in the lead of this post, there are seven major chakras:
The Root Chakra
It 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.
The Sacral Chakra
It is located just below our navel in our lower abdominal region. The color of this chakra is a deep, saturated orange. The second chakra relates to reproduction on a physical level. creativity, joy and relationships correspond to the chakra’s emotional level while our energy and passions are on a spiritual level.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
This chakra is located above our navel and directly in our stomach area. The solar plexus chakra plays a vital role in digestion and glows in a bright yellow color. This chakra deals with growth and pertains to issues of personal power, the intellect, control and spiritual evolution
The Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is located in the center 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 third chakra are unconditional love, compassion, and well-being.
The Throat Chakra
This chakra is located 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 maturity, truth, independence and the ability to trust others.
The Third Eye Chakra
The third eye chakra is positioned in the center of our forehead, between our eyebrows. It is also known as the brow chakra, it spinning in a deep saturated dark blue hue. The sixth chakra helps us tap into our inner guidance and divine vision. This chakra deals with developing intuitive clarity, releasing repressed emotions and attaining self-realization.
The 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.
Why Chakras Are so Important
Each of these chakras corresponds 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, i.e. balanced, every aspect of our life becomes harmonious and joyful.

How To Practice Affirmations On Chakras
When using the following affirmations, sit or lie down in a quiet place and focus on the location of each chakra. As you speak out or silently meditate on each affirmation, visualize a wheel spinning face-up in a clockwise direction in the specific color frequency of each chakra:
Writing is another method you can use the affirmations listed above. Just sit down every day and write down one affirmation for each chakra three or nine times in a notebook bought for this purpose.
You can also learn these affirmations by heart and stand in front of the mirror citing them. Singing while having a shower would be another interesting option.
Moreover, make seven posters in the colors corresponding to each chakra, hang them on the wall where you stay the most during the day. Write one or maximum two affirmations on each poster corresponding to one of the seven chakras.
