Affirmations are empowering statements that support our growth and evolution in body, mind and spirit.
We use the power of ‘word’ to help create a high vibration. Words are a form of energy! The positive vibrations generated by our word support the creation of a higher vibrational reality for ourselves and those around us.
Almost all of us who practise Reiki self-healing focus on the seven primary chakras. The chakras offer invaluable insights regarding our growth and potential as human and spiritual beings. Affirmations practised alongside Reiki can help us become conscious of the role each chakra plays in our life, apart from helping us develop and strengthen the qualities of the chakras.
How to Practise Chakra Affirmations
Every time you place your palms on a specific chakra, you recite one or more affirmations related to that particular energy centre. It’s as simple as that!
You may say the affirmation out loud or mentally.
As you say the affirmation, you may get an intuitive sense of where you stand with regard to the health of each chakra. If you sense resistance or blocks in a particular chakra, do not worry, You will recognise resistance if a particular affirmation feels false or makes you uncomfortable. Do not worry if this happens. Take it as a positive sign instead. The discomfort you feel is revealing to you that some inner work needs to be done.
