Chakra Healing Practices for Increasing Self Worth, self love, and Confidence
Chakra healing, self worth and self confidence: how they are connected? After years of feeling low self worth and confidence, even if we are practicing Law of Attraction daily, chant affirmations, practice power body language poses... there may be a lot of negative energy left in our seven main energetic centres in the body (chakras) due to emotional wounds, limiting beliefs, and feelings of unworthiness from the past which needs to be healed! Just like if we want our space to be shiny and clean we need to remove the dirt and dust first, same goes with emotional healing - we need to clear energetic garbage of negative emotions stored in our chakras before we can truly boost our confidence and self worth. If we are doing the mindset work (like LOA) without the energy healing prior it can be very hard for us to completely "wipe out" our old limiting beliefs and negative feelings of unworthiness, low self confidence, shame...
Imagine it kind of like bringing the brand new shiny furniture into a dirty, dusty, spider-webs room. Although we have the new shiny furniture (LOA work, affirmations, self worth and confidence boosting exercises...) if we did not do the energy healing work as well, unbalanced energy in our (chakras) can be the "invisible reason" for struggling with confidence (unbalanced throat chakra can affect our communication skills, sacral chakra blockage cause feelings of low self worth, blocked solar chakra low self esteem, and blocked root chakra lack of courage). If you are struggling with overcoming limiting beliefs, boosting your self worth and confidence for a long time, after practicing the Law of Attraction or other mindset building techniques... for a long time and "nothing" seems to be "working" or helping you significantly, the reason may be of energetic nature - related to your chakras! In this post I will share my insights on chakra balancing work which I have learned from my own self love & money mindset coach, and I will explain the connection between energetic dis-balance in chakras and how it can affect our confidence.
Throat Chakra unbalanced - Poor Communication Skills + not being able to express our thoughts, opinion, needs, feelings, and our authentic truth
Throat chakra as it’s name depicts is located in our throat. Are you having hard time expressing your authentic truth? Voicing your opinion? Expressing your thoughts verbally? Communicating your desires? Asking the fee for the good work you have done (claiming your worth)? Do you have sour throat very often? Do you lack energy too speak for a long time? Do you find it difficult to open up in conversations and speak fluently? Do you find it difficult to give presentation or speeches? Do you “lose” your voice when you need to say something important or argue about your rights or opinion? Do you have hard time connecting to people via conversation? Are you “the quietest person in the room”? Do you struggle with being too shy? If you recognise yourself above it may be an indicator that your throat chakra is imbalanced. To heal this chakra, listen the throat chakra meditation daily (you can incorporate it in your morning routine which I suggested in the previous blog post) and during the meditation chant the mantra “HAM” (I recommend this meditation below).
Along with the meditation you can use blue colour crystals to support you in the healing process of this chakra and improving your communication skills (like lapis lazuli, aquamarine, turquoise, blue opal, blue agate, blue topaz). You can wear these crystals around your neck (incorporated in a jewellery piece) or keep the stones with you and around you whenever you need to speak, or you are preparing for an important interview, conversation, performance, presentation where you need to speak or sing. Set an intention to use the crystal of your choice among those suggested above to help you heal your throat chakra and improve your communication skills. If you need an extra boost of energy to speak you can hold it in your hands, close your eyes and imagine the healing energy of the crystal running trough your throat.
Affirmations for healing throat chakra and improving communication skills:
“I speak easily. I speak with confidence. I speak fluently.
When I speak, people listen.
My voice is powerful. My message is important. “
unbalanced heart chakra - Lack of self love or fear of intimacy and deep bonding
To heal this chakra, listen the heart chakra meditation daily (you can incorporate it in your morning routine) and during the meditation chant the mantra “YAM” (I recommend the meditation below).
Affirmations for healing heart chakra and increasing self love:
I love myself deeply and unconditionally.
I open my heart to love. I chose to see everyone with love.
I am willing to forgive and heal all the emotional wounds from the past.
I am willing to heal any resistance to love.
I am willing to attract, feel, and cultivate true soul level love.
I am learning to give and receive love freely. I am loved.
unbalanced solar chakra - Low Confidence and Self Esteem
Solar chakra is seated at the solar plexus and it represents our personal power. If this chakra is imbalanced we will feel lack of confidence and self esteem. We will not be able to tune into our personal power. We will feel power-less. We will not have the courage to pursue our dreams and goals. We will not be able to set the strong boundaries in relationships and to “defend” and ourselves. If you are struggling with low confidence and self esteem for a long time you might need to heal this chakra. To heal this chakra, listen the solar chakra meditation daily (you can incorporate it in your morning routine) and during the meditation chant the mantra “RAM” (I suggest the meditation below).
Along with the meditation you can use yellow colour crystals to support you in the healing process of this chakra and increasing your confidence and self esteem (tiger’s eye, citrine, yellow agate, amber). You can wear these crystals around your neck (incorporated in a jewellery piece - pendulum), as a bracelet, or keep the stones with you and around you whenever you need to feel more powerful and more confident. Set an intention to use the crystal of your choice among those suggested above to help you heal your solar chakra and boost your confidence and self esteem. You can hold the stone in your hands, close your eyes and imagine the healing energy of the crystal running trough your solar chakra and your confidence increasing.
Affirmations for healing solar chakra and improving communication skills:
I am confident. I am capable of achieving amazing things.
My self esteem is increasing every single day.
I am a powerful woman.
Today I chose to tune into my personal power.
unbalanced sacral chakra - Lack of self worth + low sexual confidence or sexual shame + TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS + poor relationship with money
Sacral chakra is located below the solar chakra and it represents the sexuality, relationships, setting the boundaries in relationships (“honouring one another”), creativity. If you are struggling with toxic relationships, have low sexual confidence, lack of self worth, find it difficult to set healthy boundaries in relationships, or you're struggling with manifesting money or expressing yourself creatively, tuning into your sexuality, feminine energy... this chakra may need healing. To heal this chakra, listen the sacral chakra meditation daily (you can incorporate it in your morning routine) and during the meditation chant the mantra “VAM” (I suggest the meditation below).
Along with the meditation you can use orange and yellow colour crystals to support you in the healing process of this chakra and increasing your sexual confidence and self worth (citrine, moonstone, sunstone, carnelian, amber). You can wear these crystals around your neck (incorporated in a jewellery piece - pendulum), as a bracelet, or keep the stones with you and around you whenever you need to feel more worthy, want to increase your feeling of self worth and self respect, or your sexual confidence. Set an intention to use the crystal of your choice among those suggested above to help you heal your sacral chakra. If you need an extra boost of self worth you can hold the stone in your hands, close your eyes and imagine the healing energy of the crystal running trough your sacral chakra and your self worth increasing.
Affirmations for healing sacral chakra and increasing self worth and sexual confidence:
I am worthy. Who I am and what I do matters.
I deeply honour and respect myself.
I am now setting healthy boundaries in all of my relationships.
I am worthy of man of my dreams.
I now release all the sexual shame and wounds from the past.
unbalanced Root Chakra - insecurity and lack of courage in life + low self-confidence + feeling anxiety about the future + not trusting self
Root chakra is located at the base of our spine. When this chakra is unbalanced we lack the feeling of security in life. We are feeling deep uncertainty about our future. We fear taking risks. We fear what future will bring. We overthink our every move fearing that we will make the mistake. We miss out on joys of life because we attach ourself onto certainty so much that we start missing verity and surprises. Life becomes dull and boring. We live in constant fear or even anxiety. We panic. We doubt ourselves. We mistrust life. We mistrust ourselves. We mistrust others. We lack the courage to pursue our goals and dreams because we are fearful of failure. We want to always play it safe in life. We may show too much jealousy in our relationships fearing that we are going to lose our partner. We always “prepare for the worse”. If you recognise yourself in the lines above that may be indicator that your root chakra needs to heal. Other than meditations, the one thing that can really help you in healing this chakra is having the trust in the Universe (or whatever Source you believe in), knowing that you are not alone, that you are being always Divinely guided and supported, that the Universe has your back. Connecting to element earth and nature can be very beneficial for healing this chakra, as well as wearing red colour clothes, eating red colour food, using red colour and black colour crystals, and tapping into your intuition in order to increase confidence in your "gut" feeling - you can read how to increase your intuition in my previous blog post. To heal this chakra, listen the root chakra meditation daily (you can incorporate it in your morning routine) and during the meditation chant the mantra “LAM” (I suggest the meditation below).
Along with the meditation you can use red colour crystals, to support you in the healing process of this chakra and increasing your confidence and self esteem (bloodstone, red jasper, garnet...). You can wear these crystals around your neck (incorporated in a jewellery piece - pendulum), as a bracelet, or keep the stones with you and around you whenever you need to feel more secure and increase the trust in yourself. Set an intention to use the crystal of your choice among those suggested above to help you heal your root chakra and boost your confidence and self esteem. You can hold stone in your hands, close your eyes and imagine the healing energy of the crystal running trough your root chakra and your confidence and trust in self, other people, and the Universe increasing.
Affirmations for healing root chakra and improving communication skills:
I am secure, protected, and Divinely guided in every single moment of my life. The Universe has my back.
I am never alone - the Universe supports me and is with me in every step.
There is no such thing as a failure - only life lesson learned!
I have the lioness courage within me! I am brave.
I let go of worry as worry is attracting more of what I don’t want in my life.
chakra balancing meditation and healing process
I need to add that healing chakras is an “invisible” process which is happening on an energetic level. It is not a“pill” which will help you overnight! Depending of the condition of your chakras, it may take few months, six months or even longer time to heal them. You will be able to notice after some time that your communication skills are improving and you are suffering less often from throat problems, or that your confidence is increasing, or that you are more loving to yourself and other people, or that you are feeling more secure in self and trusting life (depending which chakra you are healing, it will manifest differently), but you need to be patient and trust the process. Also, as with any practice, consistency matters. You need to be willing to “do the work”. Chakra balancing meditations may not be like guided meditations with affirmations and birds singing sounds which will relax you and make you feel more joyful and “jolly”. They are energetically very powerful and although they will leave you feeling calmer afterwards, you will need to sit in that meditation for 15 minutes and chant the mantras. There won’t be bird’s sound, or visualising macaroons, rainbows, and sunshine. It may be a bit “uncomfortable” to sit in it for 15 minutes and to chant the mantra 108 times (as recommended by Indian gurus). But, if you do them regularly, it will be all worth it. I would suggest that along with these chakra healing practices you start using a printable daily planner with affirmation section, self care section, and gratitude section, to help you with confidence boosting mindset work. You can download it for free in my previous blog post about manifesting morning routine (click here).
