Chakra affirmations are life-changing. They can help you turn negative energies into positivity and make your life better.

Want to learn more?

Let this post help you. Here, we’ll talk about chakra affirmation. We’ll talk about what it is and how to use it.

This way, you’ll know what you need about chakra affirmations and how to maximize their use. 

How chakra affirmations work

The word chakra is derived from Sanskrit, and when translated into English, it means wheel.

In relevance, chakra affirmations work in line with how the chakra system works. And the chakra system works like a giant wheel.

In this giant wheel, there are small wheels or seven main chakras: heart, crown, sacral, root, solar plexus, third-eye, and throat chakras.

For the giant wheel to work, the energy that flows through the seven main chakras should permeate seamlessly. And for this to happen, chakra affirmations enter the picture.

These affirmations are immensely powerful. They provide the seven chakras, also called energy centers, the fuel to operate as needed.

Who uses chakra affirmations?

For this reason, spiritual practitioners, vagabonds, and traditional folks — basically, people from all walks of life — have high regard for these affirmations. Many use them to make certain aspects of their lives better. And there are those who turn to them as a last resort (or if medications can’t help them eliminate their troubles).

Either way, they can benefit from these affirmations because these help them reset their mind and carry the right thoughts.

Can you create your own powerful chakra affirmations?

Yes, you can. If you don’t want to use these chakra affirmations, it’s alright. You can create your own based on the messages of the affirmations for specific chakras.

For example, one of the chakra affirmations for the heart chakra is “I welcome love.” If you want to use a different line, you’re free to do so. It could be a message somewhere along those lines. It could also be something else entirely.

How to use affirmations for the heart chakra, sacral chakra, and seven chakras

Using affirmations is powerful because the thoughts in your head are responsible for shaping your reality. To maximize their use or use them to stimulate specific energy centers, learn more about the seven chakras — what they are and their specific functions.

1. Heart chakra affirmations

Anahata or the heart chakra is in your chest and over the heart. Associated with it is the color green — specifically, a vibrant version of green.

This chakra relates to compassion, empathy, well-being, and unconditional love. Of all chakras (and not just the seven major chakras), it’s thought to be the central chakra. It connects three chakras with the other three. Notably, it connects the crown, third-eye, and throat chakras with the solar plexus, sacral, and root chakras.

Loneliness, isolation, and dysfunctional relationships are the signs of an unbalanced heart chakra. In addition to all these emotional troubles are respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, and upper back illnesses. To rectify such problems, use these chakra affirmations.

Here are heart chakra affirmations:

  • “I welcome love.”
  • “I love myself.”
  • “I forgive myself.”
  • “I accept unique people.”
  • “My heart is happy.”

2. Crown chakra affirmations

The crown chakra, or sahasrara, is at the top of your head. The color violet represents it.

It’s one of the more important chakras because it relates to the wisdom of the universe, enlightenment, spiritual connection, and divine awakening. If you feel like you don’t belong anywhere in the world, or you feel detached from reality, it holds the key to solving your problem. 

Stimulating the crown chakra should be first on your list. And if you want to unleash the full potential of your spiritual side, you should activate it first before the other chakras.

Here are crown chakra affirmations:

  • “I am divine.”
  • “I am one with the universe.”
  • “I am at a peaceful place.”
  • “I am satisfied with my life.”
  • “I am not looking for anything more.”

3. Sacral chakra affirmations

Svadisthana, or the sacral chakra is located below your navel. Orange is the color linked to it.

It’s the portal that can help make life (more) exciting for you. Want to introduce passion, liveliness, and creativity into your life? Opening this chakra will make it happen.

Compared to the other energy centers, it may seem as if it’s only additional energy. But it’s not. If the sacral chakra is unbalanced, it may make you feel out of place and give you no reason to feel giddy about life. And it is as if you have no purpose in this world. You’ll also be prone to jealousy, envy, sexual dysfunctions, and unhealthy obsessions.

Here are sacral chakra affirmations:

  • “I am creative.”
  • “I find it comfortable to be in my human body.”
  • “I feel and understand my emotions well.”
  • “It’s okay to find pleasure however I want.”
  • “It’s okay to express my sexual needs.”

4. Root chakra affirmations

You can find the root chakra, or muladhara, at the base of the spine. Red is the color associated with it.

Think of it as a root. It serves as the foundation for the other chakras. And as the foundation for the other chakras, it’s where your survival instincts and basic needs reside.

The importance of using root chakra affirmations is to help you gain or regain a sense of control in your life. If you feel inexplicably lazy or afraid, a solution is to use these affirmations. The affirmations are also the solution to relevant physical problems like sciatica, constipation, colon pain, and hemorrhoids.

Here are root chakra affirmations:

  • “I am cared for.”
  • “I am protected, safe, and secure.”
  • “I am grounded.”
  • “I am financially stable.”
  • “I am well-provided for.”

5. Solar plexus chakra affirmations

ManiPura or the solar plexus chakra is in your belly and a little below your heart. The color linked to it is yellow.

Self-growth, personal power, and control are some of its relevant areas. It’s the chakra that serves as the seat of your own power. And therefore, it’s the chakra that can frame or reframe your mentality for the better.

Need help steering your own life for the better? Feeling overwhelmed or under a lot of pressure? How about a feeling of low self-esteem and confidence? If so, stimulating this specific energy center can ease your troubles.

Here are solar plexus chakra affirmations:

  • “I am in charge of my power.”
  • “I am powerful.”
  • “I am bold and strong.”
  • “I am honorable.”
  • “I am respectable.”

6. Third-eye chakra affirmations

Ajna, or the third-eye chakra, is located in your forehead and in between your eyebrows. The color indigo is associated with it.

It’s related to your perspective in life. If you feel as if you don’t know which direction you want your life to go, tap it for help. It can help you gain better focus, concentration, and alertness. Also, it can help you sort out your priorities and always enjoy the present moment.

Stimulating the third-eye chakra is important because it serves as a portal for the spirits to realign your vision. If energy flows through it smoothly, it means your connection to the spiritual world is secure and strong. But if it doesn’t, your spirit can get interrupted when reaching out to you.

Here are third-eye chakra affirmations:

  • “I trust my gut and intuition.”
  • “I can see things clearly.”
  • “I think about peaceful thoughts.”
  • “I feel connected to a higher being.”
  • “I am capable of making well-informed decisions.”

7. Throat chakra affirmations

The throat chakra, or Vishuddi, is in your throat. The color blue is associated with it.

It’s important to stimulate it because it’s in charge of your communication and expression. If you neglect it, your physical body and spirit will be out of sync.

Think of the throat chakra as your voice. Without it, it’s physically impossible to speak up or express yourself in any way. If you overstimulate it, though, you’ll be susceptible to misinformation, lies, and gossip.

Here are throat chakra affirmations:

  • “I feel safe every time I express myself.”
  • “I love using my voice.”
  • “When I speak my truth, I feel free.”
  • “I am honest.”
  • “I speak of positive things about others.”

Final thoughts

The power of chakra affirmations can change if you do your end of the bargain. You need to be consistent in using these affirmations so your mind gets used to them. If you’ll only use them occasionally or whenever you randomly remember them, they may not work at all.

Use them every day (first thing in the morning) for a couple of months, for example. Only then will you start to believe in them. And only then will your mind follow.

Another tip is to use short lines as chakra affirmations. They’re easy to remember, and therefore, easy to use in everyday situations. Especially if it’s going to be your first experience with affirmations, they can make the task easier to accomplish.
