More than anything, I have found that meditation is the best in bringing me to the present moment. Meditation has been proven to decrease physical pain and anxiety. But, what exactly is meditation? It’s a technique used to attain a state of consciousness that’s different from the waking state.
Meditation is focused attention on something. Many people use the breath as their “anchor” for meditation. The joy that comes from meditation is everlasting in our lives. Meditation also leads to being non-reactive to our emotions and thoughts. How do we get to this place of non-reactivity in our lives?
The crown chakra is our connection to our own higher power. Ultimately, it helps us to connect with ourselves. The crown chakra drives self fulfillment and it also is the center where your talents and gifts are found. Connecting with the crown chakra allows us to receive inspiration and find our own way through life, the way that is best for you as an individual.
It’s all about knowing and trusting yourself. It’s about surrendering to the divine or your higher self if you choose to.
Affirmations can assist you in connecting with yourself by tapping into who you are, by affirming “I AM.” Use affirmations to declare yourself as radiant, light, and complete.
You can connect with that divine part of you. You probably are more capable than you think!
The third-eye chakra is probably one of the most well-known chakras. I see people on the internet all the time trying to open their third-eye or wanting to get deeper into meditation to tap into it. The third eye chakra is the center of intuition and perception– it’s about seeing with clarity.
How do I open my third eye chakra?
The truth is, your third-eye chakra has been working for you ever since you were little. It knows when there’s something wrong in a situation. It knows how to tell you when something seems off. It allows you to step into someone else’s shoes and take their perspective. So, knowing that your intuition has been here all along still raises the question, how do I tap into my third eye intentionally?
The throat chakra is the center we speak from. It is the center of sound, so saying affirmations out loud benefits this chakra in a tangible way. The throat is also about communication, speaking your truth. A clear throat chakra is one where we can speak our truth and communicate clearly. It’s the outward appearance and expression of the chakras beneath it.
This is such a beautiful space of sound and light. Your voice is the music you make naturally.
Throat chakra affirmations can assist in helping you to clarify your message for the world to hear. It encourages you to speak up, or to stay quiet and listen at appropriate times. This is also a very social center, reflecting the inner workings of the sacral chakra.
Communication is key to relationships and focusing on this chakra is central to maintaining healthy relationships in your life.
Affirmations have the ability to help the heart chakra to open up to the concepts of love, forgiveness, compassion, and acceptance.
It’s all about love. Accepting love into your life through opening the heart. Receiving love. Giving love. Letting love into your life. So many of us are closed off from love, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in. It is possible to find love in your heart at all times, with or without a romantic partner. Having this sense of love and peace generates the desire for connection with others.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is a powerful chakra to connect with. Tapping into this chakra through affirmations can bring strength, motivation and vibrancy into your life. This builds onto the concept of self-love. Once we establish a good sense of self-worth and love, we can build up our confidence to be able to take action towards the things we want to accomplish.
The Sacral Chakra is well-known for relationships– the relationships we have now and the patterns we carry with relationships. While this is true, I would argue that when you are trying to heal the Sacral Chakra it is best to focus on self-love. Self-love is what nourishes healthy relationships, and it is the most important aspect when you are entering a new relationship or trying to repair an existing relationship.
