In this post we look at how to balance chakras with affirmations, and why chakra affirmations are an incredible, and extremely effective, method for achieving optimal health and wellbeing.
The power of positive affirmation teamed with meditation (or focused thought) is a long established method in Ayurveda, Yoga and eastern esoteric belief systems.
These practices are particularly effective for:
- Releasing negative and trapped emotion,
- Dispelling stored negative energies
- Clear energy blockages in our chakras and meridian system,
- Opening and aligning chakras
- Regain balance in our lives.
We know that our thoughts create our reality, and so if we accept this;
We need to accept that through focused thought we can achieve astonishing results in our lives.
It seems a natural and simple conclusion that through the use of chakra affirmations we can achieve the energetic balance needed to manifest whatever it is we wish to achieve.

What are Chakras?
“Chakra” is a Sanskrit word which literally translates as “a spinning wheel”. You can learn more about their specific energies in our post “What Are The 7 Chakras?“
When looking to understand energy balance, we first need to understand the 7 chakras and how they affect our physical, emotional and spiritual health.
The 7 major chakras are located along our spinal column and form part of Sushumna the Central Nadi.
Each corresponds to a particular color-coded vibration and frequency. These vibrations influence our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

When our chakras are balanced and aligned we achieve energetic harmony.
When our Chakras are in balance we:
- Feel grounded, feel connected and feel safe in our world;
- Are able to set and maintain healthy boundaries;
- Have improved self-confidence with high self-esteem;

The Affirmation Process
Settle yourself comfortably, take a few deep breaths in and out.
Visualize breathing in silvery white light, pure light from from the heavens. This silvery white light clears you of negative feelings, emotions and stresses of the day.
As you breathe in feel your lungs expand and open to allow more universal energy to flow into your body building a connection to the divine.
With each breathe out you feel lighter and more in tune with the universe and you can feel all the tension draining from your body.
When you are completely relaxed begin the meditation starting with Muladhara the Root or Base Chakra.
Once you complete your Muladhara meditation then move on, working your way up through the remaining chakras in order.
Take the time on each Chakra to truly see in your minds eye the bright disk, or spinning wheel of the energy center and then repeat your affirmation as detailed previously.
The root or base chakra is located at the base of our spine, corresponds with the color red. This chakra relates to our basic human instinct for survival, security and stability.
“I am a divine being of light. I am peaceful. I am protected. I am secure. I give and receive love with joy. I am a divine being of light and love”
