Chakra Affirmations

If you want to activate your potential, unblock energy flow, and balance the seven chakras, practicing affirmations will help. Chakra affirmations are a great way to work with your subconscious mind, reprogram your brain, and gain momentum with healing and balancing your chakras.

What Are Chakra Affirmations?

Chakra affirmations are a practical way to meditate and connect the mind with the body. Chakra derives from Sanskrit, meaning "wheel" or "disk." There are seven chakras running centrally in the human body, each a specialized energy center functioning on a different aspect of physical and mental well-being.

Empowering chakra affirmations can help maintain healthy energy flow and promote balance in the mind and body, sending direct healing vibrations through the energy centers.

People use these positive affirmations for many reasons, including:

  • Meditation practice
  • Building self-esteem
  • Balancing a specific chakra
  • Developing a spiritual connection
  • Being in the present moment
  • Removing negative thoughts
  • Creating new beliefs and habits
  • Discovering inner wisdom 

Root Chakra Affirmations

The first chakra is located at the base of the spine, associated with feeling grounded and safe. The Root Chakra is responsible for the fundamental things in our life, serving as a base.

Root Chakra affirmations might include "I am safe," "I am supported," or "I belong."

Practicing Root Chakra affirmations can help with feelings of support, safety, and belonging. 

Sacral Chakra Affirmations

The second chakra is located just below the navel and is associated with creativity, pleasure, and sexuality. Sacral Chakra affirmations might include "I am creative," “I accept all of my feelings,” or "I am open to new experiences."

The Sacral Chakra is connected to reproductive health, kidneys, and bowel system.

Solar Plexus Chakra Affirmations

The third chakra is located between the navel and sternum, associated with personal power and self-esteem. Solar Plexus Chakra affirmations for this chakra might include "I am confident," "I am in control," or "I am worthy."

Heart Chakra Affirmations

The fourth chakra is located in the center of the chest, associated with love, compassion, and forgiveness. It's also responsible for your heart and lung health.

Heart chakra affirmations for this chakra might include "I am loved," "I am kind," or "I forgive myself."

Throat Chakra Affirmations

The fifth chakra is located in the throat, associated with communication and self-expression. Throat Chakra affirmations are  "I communicate clearly," "I express myself freely," or "I listen to my intuition." 

Working with Throat Chakra affirmations activates energy centers in the body to help you connect with your truth and effectively share it with others and the world.

Third Eye Chakra Affirmations

The sixth chakra is located between the eyebrows, associated with intuition and wisdom. Third Eye Chakra affirmations for this eye chakra might include "I trust my vision," "I am wise," or "I see the truth."

Crown Chakra Affirmations

Located at the top of the head, the Crown Chakra is linked to spirituality, higher consciousness, and connection to divine energy. Affirmations for this chakra might include "I am connected to the Divine," "I am one with all that is," or "I am at peace." Crown Chakra affirmations are great for those in pursuit of spiritual awakening.

Tips For Chakra Affirmations

  • Choose the Right Chakra and Affirmation for your Goal: Affirmations are most effective when you choose the correct chakra affirmation for your goal. To improve low self-esteem, focus on affirmations for the Solar Plexus Chakra. Affirmations for the Crown Chakra might be more appropriate if you're trying to develop a spiritual connection. Or, for instance, if you'd like to experience the state of unconditional love, choose an affirmation for the Heart Chakra.
  • Practice Frequently: For best results, practice your chosen affirmation(s) frequently. Once a day is a good start, but aim to practice as often as possible. If you notice your inner dialogue speaks a self-defeating, harming or limiting belief, that is the time to bring in your positive affirmation. The important thing is to be consistent and make affirmations part of your daily routine.
  • Believe in the Power of Affirmations: Chakra affirmations will only work if you genuinely believe in them. While parts of the ego or subconscious mind may be holding on to old wounds and unhelpful beliefs, the deepest part of you knows that you have everything you need for healing and actualizing your potential. 
  • Use Present Tense: When working with powerful affirmations, it's important to use present-tense language. For example, "I am confident" is more effective than "I will be confident." This helps your mind to better accept the affirmation as accurate in the present moment.

Intentions vs. Affirmations


Although you might notice similarities between the two and both terms get frequently confused, it's important to distinguish between affirmations and intentions. Intentions focus on what you want to create or manifest in your life, such as a goal or your “why” for taking an action. 

Affirmations are positive statements that declare and support what you currently have and already are while also releasing what is blocking that, such as the belief of what you are not.

Both intentions and affirmations help beat negative thoughts and promote positive energy. However, replacing one with the other won't achieve the same results. 

For example, suppose you intend to become a more spiritually aware and connected person. In that case, you need an action step such as meditation, and the affirmation “I am a spiritual being” would be a tool to support that.

Frequently Asked Questions

What chakra do you manifest with?

Manifestation involves all of the chakras, but the solar plexus chakra in the abdomen is particularly significant. It's the center of personal power, self-esteem, and manifestation energy. 

Activating the Solar Plexus Chakra with affirmations and visualization can enhance one's ability to bring desires into reality. Just beware of the ego trap and ensure your desires align with your higher chakras and spiritual nature.

What is the chakra mantra?

A chakra mantra is a sacred word or phrase repeated during meditation to activate and harmonize the energy centers. 

Each chakra has its own bija mantra. For instance, the root chakra's mantra could be "LAM," and the crown chakra's mantra could be "OM." Mantras can be chanted aloud or silently to enhance meditation and promote energy flow through the chakras.
