The seventh chakra, Sahasrara, is the crown chakra. It is located at the crown of the head and is symbolized with the colors purple and white. This energy center is mainly associated with your spiritual connection and limitless wisdom. We are going to focus on how to open this chakra with affirmations.
What Are Affirmations?
First, what are affirmations? Affirmations are used in psychology and new age thought to affirm an idea or concept to your subconscious and conscious mind. When we have a thought we will also attach an associated image, feeling, and response to this thought.
It has been proven that our brain actually cannot tell the difference between visualizations real-life events. The power of affirmations is amplified when we attach our emotions to them.
By using affirmation we are telling and affirming to the brain a reality we are wanting to integrate with. The repetition of these thoughts work to ingrain themselves in the subconscious.
This begins to affect the way we interact with life and the way we view ourselves. When we have an underlying current that we can trust ourselves or that we are worthy of love we will begin to naturally act in a way that harmonizes with this reality rather than in a way that actually blocks this from entering our lives.
Affirmations really work to disarm self-sabotaging tendencies and actually make it easier to create change.
How To Use Affirmations
To begin using affirmations, take some time to become aware of where you would like to encourage or grow yourself. Then choose an affirmation or customize one to feel like the love you want to bring into your life.
Then the most important step is to own it. When you say these affirmations cultivate the feelings you would be feeling as you are saying them as if they are your truth. Feel extravagantly rich when you say the words “I am abundant”.
Through the law of attraction, you will begin to shift your vibration to be a harmonious match to the reality of the affirmation.
Affirmations and The Chakras
The chakras vibrate at a higher frequency when they are in balance. You can affirm statements that match these frequencies in order to open, balance and program your chakras to be open and in alignment.
You can journal these affirmations, chant them, sing them, or think them in meditation. They work the strongest with the intentions and attention you put behind them. Click here to learn other ways to open and head the crown chakra.
