    Healing the Solar Plexus Chakra

    Self-confidence. Self-esteem. Self-respect. Self-image. Self-worth.

    The solar plexus chakra is the energy center for all of the empowering self words. Want to build more confidence? Ready to boost your self-esteem? Looking to create a positive self-image and cultivate everlasting self-worth?

    Then it’s time to focus on the solar plexus chakra, your body’s energy center for confidence, joy, positivity, empowerment, and drive. Located a couple inches above the navel, just below your chest (you might call this the pit of your stomach), your solar plexus chakra is also your energy center of alignment with your purpose and core values.

    Now, the truth is, most of us don’t feel good 100% of the time. Even those of us who have generally high self-esteem experience moments of doubt and insecurity.

    And that’s okay.

    It’s normal not to feel positive every single moment of every day. The key is to recognize when you’re feeling low and to know that even though you may be having negative thoughts, it doesn’t make them true.

    On top of that, it’s important to have the tools you need to help build your confidence back up when it’s low.

    Positive affirmations are an important part of your self-care toolkit, and so is journaling. I’ve been journaling every morning for the past several years, and it’s made a huge impact on my confidence and self-belief. Journaling allows me to get in touch with my inner self and explore all my hidden depths.

    And, I’ve discovered, the more I’ve gotten to know the real me, the more I like myself.

    Below are 30 powerful solar plexus journal prompts to help you explore your own inner world. Specifically, these questions are geared toward discovering your confidence, finding your purpose, and celebrating all the things that make you awesome.

    Explore these journal prompts with an open mind and open heart, and write your answers with courage, honesty, and lots of self-love.

    And to go even deeper into balancing your solar plexus chakra, I’ve also put together 35 solar plexus chakra affirmations for confidence and motivation. You’ll also get these affirmations, along with the journal prompts below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    The journal prompts below are designed to help you open, activate, and heal your solar plexus chakra. Each prompt explores one of the central attributes of this energy center, including confidence, self-respect, self-worth, purpose, drive, positivity, joy, and more.

    There aren’t many rules about how to approach these prompts, as each person is different, and we all have different preferences and needs.

    If you want, you can read through the prompts and choose the ones that resonate most with you. If you do this, I would encourage you to still give some of the other prompts a try, as something might come to the surface for you that you weren’t expecting.

    You can also choose to start at the top and work your way to the bottom one prompt at a time.

    Whatever you decide to do, just make sure you have some quiet time to yourself to do this work. Whether it’s 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or longer, the most important thing is that you truly have time and space to explore your inner world without distractions.

    And my only other rule? (Well, more like a loving suggestion.)

    Be kind to yourself as you answer these questions.

    Be compassionate. Release self-criticism and self-judgment. The goal here isn’t to be perfect; the goal is to heal and fully explore your inner world. To do that, you must be wholeheartedly honest and kind to yourself throughout the process.

    So as you walk forward in this journey, make self-love your first priority, and let it lead you on your path.

    What is the Solar Plexus Chakra?

    Located above your navel, in the center of your torso (you might also refer to it as the pit of your stomach), the solar plexus chakra is your body’s energy center for confidence, positivity, motivation, and drive. I also like to think of it as the chakra that’s associated with all the self words: self-esteem, self-respect, self-image, and self-worth.

    When your solar plexus chakra is balanced and aligned, your overall self-image is high. You feel confident in the steps you’re taking, and you wholeheartedly believe in yourself and your ability to succeed.

    A balanced solar plexus chakra is also associated with being a good team player. You’re collaborative, confident in your decision making, and have a high sense of integrity.

    Blockages and imbalances to the solar plexus chakra are associated with low self-esteem, lack of ambition, and a sense of worthlessness. If the solar plexus chakra is overactive, you may also experience arrogance, hunger for power, and a superiority complex.

    Positive affirmations are a powerful way to restore balance to any of your body’s energy centers. Below, you’ll find 35 powerful solar plexus chakra affirmations to activate, balance, and heal your energy center for confidence, positivity, and self-esteem.

    And to go even deeper into balancing your solar plexus chakra, I’ve also put together 30 journal prompts to open and heal your solar plexus chakra. You’ll also get these journal prompts, along with the affirmations below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.

    Sacral Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Sacral Chakra

    In this post, discover 14 powerful sacral chakra healing practices that will help you to open and balance your sacral chakra, your body’s energy center for creativity, passion, prosperity, joy, and sensuality.

    Sacral Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Sacral Chakra

    What is the Sacral Chakra?

    Located in your lower abdomen, your sacral chakra is your energy center for creativity, joy, prosperity, passion, openness, and playfulness. An open and balanced sacral chakra means you embrace your creativity, have high self-esteem, and are able to relax, have fun, and play. Pleasure is a word often associated with the sacral chakra, as having an open sacral chakra means you find delight in all of life’s pleasures.

    This is also the energy center for sensuality and sexuality. When energy is flowing freely through this chakra, you’re more likely to have a strong, positive relationship with your body. You honor your desires and have healthy intimate relationships with others.

    The sacral chakra is about more than creativity and high self-esteem, though. When this energy center is balanced, you feel more open, adaptable, compassionate, and forgiving. You’re honest with yourself and others, and you’re able to let go of grudges that don’t serve your well-being.

    Additionally, because you have a strong and healthy relationship with yourself, you know that holding onto negative emotions such as anger, resentment, and bitterness only harms you in the long run, so you’re able to release these feelings (in a healthy way) in order to take care of your mind, body, and spirit.

    In this post, we’ll look deeper into the sacral chakra and discuss 14 powerful practices for opening, balancing, and healing your second energy center.

    First, here are some of the key attributes of the sacral chakra:

    • Sanskrit Name: Svadhishthana (Sva = “self”; shthana = “place”)
    • Location: Lower abdomen (below your navel)
    • Color: Orange
    • Body Parts: Womb, Bladder, Lower Back, Reproductive Organs
    • Symbol: Six-petaled lotus with a moon crescent in the center
    • Element: Water
    • Mantra: VAM
    • Affirmation: I feel
    • Balanced Attributes: Creative, Joyful, Playful, Prosperous, Stable, Sexual, Sensual, Passionate, Open, Energetic, Honest, Forgiving
    • Imbalanced Attributes: Lack of Creativity, Unstable, Insecure, Anxious, Scattered, Lazy, Fearful, Disconnected, Depressed, Unmotivated, Negative, Lack of Sensuality
    • Fundamental Need: Emotional flow, desire, sexuality

    Sacral Chakra Healing

    If you live in a culture that prioritizes work over play, sacral chakra healing can be an especially important and profound self-care practice. It’s also important if you grew up with a negative relationship your own body, or if you’re not fully comfortable with your sensuality and sexuality.

    So how does sacral chakra healing really work? First, it’s important to understand your chakra system and the energy within your body.

    While you often only hear about the seven main chakras, there are actually 114 chakras throughout your body. (And some believe there to be more.) These chakras are connected by energy channels called nadis. Just like cars travel on roads to get from one place to another, energy travels through these energy channels to get to each of your chakras.

    In a perfect system, your energy is flowing freely all the time. Unfortunately, energy often becomes stuck inside this system, causing your chakras to become either overactive or underactive. Ignoring these blockages won’t make them go away. To get energy moving again, you need to engage in healing practices to help stimulate your life force (prana).

    The type of healing you need will depend on the level of blockage you’re experiencing.

    For instance, if you’re experiencing some writer’s block or feeling excess negativity within, but this isn’t normal for you, meditation and gentle movement through yoga may help to get the energy flowing again.

    But if your blockage goes deeper, you may need to engage in profound inner child healing practices in order to get to the source of the blockage so that you can work with it, release it, and stimulate the free flow of energy within.

    Below, you’ll find 14 powerful healing practices to open, balance, and activate your sacral chakra. You can use any of these practices as part of your daily routine, or you can choose a few when you feel like your sacral chakra is blocked and imbalanced. I encourage you to try a few of the healing practices that resonate with you most and, whenever possible, practice them consistently in your daily life.

    Get Creative

    How often do you make space in your life for creativity?

    Actually, let me rephrase that.

    How often do you make space in your life for creativity that has absolutely no end goal? It’s not meant to be productive. It’s not meant to be good. And it’s definitely not meant to be perfect. It’s just pure, unrestricted, joyful creativity.

    This is the type of creativity you feel when you’re in a total flow state. And there’s a good chance it’s not the type of creative outlet you’re best at.

    For instance, I’m a writer. I’m writing blog posts and articles every single day, and I also often work on fiction stories in my spare time. But even then, I have a difficult time letting go of my inner perfectionist. So when I’m working with my sacral chakra, I never turn to writing to stimulate my creativity.

    Rather, I often do something that I’m not very objectively good at, like painting. I embrace the fun and play of it all, and I let go and allow my inner creative being to guide me wherever she wants to go.

    Embracing your creative flow is one of the most beneficial practices you can do when working with your sacral chakra. Do something you feel good about that isn’t related to your job and that you don’t feel the need to be perfect when doing. Let it be both messy and beautiful!

    Spend Time In Water

    The sacral chakra’s associated element is water, and there are several powerful ways you can use water to connect with this energy center. My personal favorite practice is to take a luxurious bubble bath. When your sacral chakra is open and balanced, that means you have a positive relationship with your body and embrace your own divine sensuality. A warm bubble bath is the perfect way to honor your body.

    I also love to pair this practice with aromatherapy and crystal healing, which you’ll read more about below. Turn off the lights, place your sacral chakra healing crystals around the tub, and use cinnamon-scented candles or essential oils to set the mood for profound sacral chakra healing.

    (Not a bath person? Get some ideas for shower meditations here.)

    Of course, you can also find water all over nature, which is one of our greatest teachers and healers of all. Oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams all offer opportunities to connect with your sacral chakra. If you’re not too keen on getting in the water, that’s okay! Even sitting near the water while meditating, journaling, or simply sitting in silence can offer meaningful healing.

    Mirror Work

    Mirror work can be a beneficial practice for your entire chakra system as a whole, but I especially like it for sacral chakra healing because it can help build self-esteem and connect you to your body, which are all important aspects of the sacral chakra.

    So what is mirror work exactly? First, stand in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes. If possible, try to use a mirror that shows at least half your body. Bring a gentle smile to your lips. As you’re looking yourself in the eyes, start complimenting yourself. Affirm all the things you love about yourself, both inside and out. If you’re complimenting your arms, you can gently brush your fingertips against your arms in loving reverence. The same goes for your face, chest, legs, and all the rest of your divine being.

    And if you’re feeling super confident, you can even start dancing in front of the mirror. Your dancing can be fun and joyful or sultry and sensual; do what feels most comfortable to you! When you’re about done, look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself I love you. Repeat this practice as often as you need.

    Uplifting Affirmations

    Positive affirmations are a powerful way to lift your vibrations and align yourself with the energy you want to attract. For sacral chakra healing, focus on words that affirm your joy, creativity, passion, prosperity, openness, sensuality, and sexuality. Use these affirmations throughout your day.

    Below, you can find some sacral chakra affirmations to get you started. And you can click here for more sacral chakra affirmations.

    • I am open to the flow of creativity.
    • I am creative, passionate, and inspired. 
    • I feel joyful, energetic, and alive.
    • I am pure, positive energy.
    • My emotions flow freely in a balanced and healthy way. 
    • I allow the flow of positive energy to effortlessly move through me.
    • I live a creative, vibrant, passionate life.
    • I am vibrating pure joy, abundance, and prosperity.
    • Endless prosperity flows to and through me.
    • I am cultivating a beautiful life free of stress, worries, or fear.
    • I deserve absolute and unconditional bliss.
    • Unconditional joy is my birthright.

    Dance

    When your sacral chakra is blocked, you may feel withdrawn, tense, negative, and/or fearful. Dancing is one of the best ways to allow energy to flow freely throughout your body as you release any tension you may be holding onto within.

    Does the idea of dancing in front of people feel too overwhelming? That’s okay! This practice can often be most beneficial when you’re completely alone. If you’re at home or somewhere safe, play some music that resonates with you. It can be fast and upbeat or slow and sensual. You can set the mood by turning off lights, lighting candles, and/or changing into clothes that make you feel your best.

    Then, all you have to do is simply dance. Let loose, knowing you are completely safe. You can move in any way that feels right to you, but I do recommend connecting to your hips and lower abdomen in order to stimulate the energy in and around your sacral chakra.

    Meditation

    There are several ways you can use meditation to connect with your sacral chakra and guide you toward profound healing. One sacral chakra healing practice is to envision a bright orange glowing orb in your lower abdomen. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter. You can also recite some uplifting affirmations as you do this.

    You might also choose to envision living a day in the life as your truest, most authentic self with an open and balanced sacral chakra. How do you feel when you wake up in the morning? What do you do during the day? How do you speak to yourself and others? How do you incorporate play, fun, creativity, and joy into your day? How do you feel about your body? See all the details play out in your visualization, and feel the positive feelings of having an open sacral chakra.

    Write a Letter to Your Inner Child

    When you were a child, was using your imagination encouraged or discouraged? Did you engage in creative activities? Did you find creativity to be fun, or were you often preoccupied with being perfect? Did anyone ever say anything to discourage your creativity? Were you forced to grow up too fast?

    Take some time to sit and write a letter to your inner child. Affirm to this part of you that it’s safe to be creative. Encourage them to play more and to do things that bring them joy. Tell your inner child everything he or she needs to hear regarding play, fun, creativity, and joy. Build up their self-esteem. Was there something you always wished an adult would tell you? Tell it to yourself now.

    Journaling

    Journaling is one of my personal favorite practices for connecting with all of my chakras. If you can, I recommend making journaling a sacred time in which you’re not interrupted. If you have a quiet spot in your home, set some time aside to go there so you can connect with your inner self. You might even choose to surround yourself with crystals, essential oils, and other healing tools.

    To work with the sacral chakra, you can use journal prompts that are dedicated to connecting with the sacral chakra. To get started, you can find sacral chakra journal prompts here.

    Another powerful journaling practice is to write down sacral chakra affirmations, feeling the uplifting and positive emotions of the words as you write them.

    You can also make your journaling a time to get creative. Do you have an awesome idea for a movie, book, or TV show? Write down the story in your journal! (Just make not to edit yourself as you write. Have fun with it!)

    Visualization

    Visualization is a powerful tool in connecting to your inner self, healing your energy, and manifesting the life you desire. One reason it can be especially powerful for sacral chakra healing is that it allows you to engage with your imagination. If you haven’t used your imagination much since you were a child, this can be an especially profound healing method for you.

    There are several ways you can use visualization to connect with the sacral chakra. You can use any of the exercises outlined in the Meditation section above, or you can simply allow your imagination to take over your visualization and see where it leads.

    Since water is the element connected to the sacral chakra, you might also visualize yourself playing beneath a waterfall or floating in a river. Imagine that the water is rinsing away all negative and blocked energy and healing your life force within.

    Yoga

    Yoga is a profound healing practice for all of your chakras, but I especially love it for working with the sacral chakra because it allows you to connect with your body in a personal and powerful way. For sacral chakra healing, make sure to incorporate hip-opening poses into your practice. During your practice, breathe into your lower abdomen and focus on connecting with your sacral chakra. Let this practice be a sacred time in which you honor your body and treat it with respect and reverence.

    Here are some poses (asanas) you can incorporate into your practice when working with the sacral chakra:

    • Pigeon
    • Butterly
    • Cobra
    • Frog
    • Goddess squat

    Aromatherapy

    Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural plant extracts for therapeutic healing. This is one of my favorite underutilized healing practices, and it’s super easy to incorporate into your daily routine. For sacral chakra healing, use citrusy and/or spicy scents such as Orange, Tangerine, Cinnamon, Bergamot, Neroli, Cypress, Cardamom.

    For more information on how to use essential oils to heal the chakras, you can read my guide to essential heals for chakra healing here.

    Color Therapy

    In chakra healing, color therapy is the practice of surrounding yourself with the corresponding color of the chakra you want to open, activate, and/or heal. For sacral chakra healing, that means immersing yourself in all things orange.

    You can eat orange food, write in orange pen, wear orange clothing, and surround yourself in orange items. One of my favorite color therapy practices is to write empowering affirmations on colored post-it notes. So for sacral chakra healing, you might write uplifting sacral chakra affirmations on orange post-its.

    One of the most important things to remember here is to be intentional with this practice. Choose your items with the intention of healing your sacral chakra. You might find it helpful to play an affirmation game with your color therapy practice. For instance, if you decide to wear a piece of jewelry that has an orange gemstone, say an uplifting sacral chakra affirmation every time you touch or see this item.

    You can also decide that anytime you see an orange item while you’re out and about during the day, you’ll internally say a sacral chakra affirmation or express gratitude for an aspect of yourself related to the sacral chakra.

    Food

    Food can have a profound influence on your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual self. While we often think of food as primarily affecting the body, it also affects the mind and spirit as well. For sacral chakra healing, add your favorite spices (such as cinnamon) to drinks and meals. Add orange produce such as carrots, mangoes, and oranges to your snacks or meals. You can also add sweet, antioxidant-filled honey to your tea, yogurt, or toast. (Or however you best like to savor it.)

    Crystals & Gemstones

    Each chakra is linked to powerful crystals that help you to connect to your energy centers and stimulate the effortless flow within. For sacral chakra healing, you can use crystals that stimulate creativity and passion, such as Orange Calcite, Jasper, Carnelian, Red Tiger’s Eye, Coral, and Fire Opal. Use these crystals in meditation, as jewelry, in crystal grids, in a sacred space, or keep them with you throughout the day.

    Healing the Sacral Chakra

    How often do you let yourself play?

    No work. No thinking about your to-do lists. No sacrificing your time for everyone else.

    Just fun, non-productive, glorious play.

    And even more: how often do you daydream? How do you express your creativity in your daily life? If you have a creative job, what fun and creative things do you do in your off-time? Do you ever seek out pleasure? What are you passionate about?

    Fun, creativity, and passion are all important components of the sacral chakra, your body’s second energy center. This is also your energy center for joy, prosperity, sensuality, sexuality, openness, and honesty.

    When your sacral chakra is open and energy is freely flowing in and out of this energy center, you’re more likely to feel inspired, passionate, and in touch with your fun and creative side. It also means you’re open and honest with others, and you also have a healthy relationship with your sensuality and sexuality.

    However, if your sacral chakra is either underactive or overactive, then you likely are experiencing deficiencies in areas of fun, passion, and creativity. When underactive, you may become withdrawn, tense, and insecure. And when it’s overactive, you’re more prone to becoming controlling, manipulative, and aggressive.

    So if you want to truly cultivate that feeling of pure joy and passion for life, it’s important to connect with your sacral chakra regularly.

    And know this: you deserve joy. You deserve prosperity. And you deserve to live an effortlessly beautiful, free, creative life that you feel truly passionate about.

    So ditch the “all work, no play” mentality and invite beautiful abundance into your life today.

    If you want to learn more about practices to balance your sacral chakra, you can check out my post on sacral chakra healing practices here.

    And to go even deeper into balancing your sacral chakra, I’ve also put together 35 sacral chakra affirmations to live a creative and passionate life. You’ll also get these affirmations, along with the journal prompts below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.

    How to Use These Journal Prompts

    The 30 journal prompts below are designed to help you activate, open, and heal your sacral chakra. Each prompt focuses on an important aspect of the sacral chakra, including creativity, fun, play, sensuality, passion, sexuality, and your relationship with your body.

    And because you don’t want to be too rigid when it comes to the sacral chakra, know that there truly are no rules here. If you want to skip around and only answer the prompts that resonate with you, that’s totally fine. Or, if you’d like, you can start at the top and work your way to the bottom, one prompt at a time.

    You don’t have to answer all the prompts, though I think it can be powerful to do so as unexpected feelings and beliefs may arise from the questions posed in the various prompts.

    There’s definitely no time limit, so take as much or as little time as you need to answer these questions below. I do suggest that on days when you choose to work through the prompts, you set aside some time for yourself where you won’t be distracted or interrupted.

    And finally, make this sacred journaling time a judgment-free zone. In order to truly heal, you must work through the negative thoughts and beliefs you carry inside. And the only way you can truly embrace this healing journey is if you release judgment and embrace wholehearted authenticity, truth, and self-love.

    What is Your Sacral Chakra?

    Located in your lower abdomen (below your navel), your sacral chakra is your energy center for creativity, vitality, passion, joy, and sensuality. When your sacral chakra is balanced, you feel more open, adaptable, compassionate, and forgiving. You find delight in all of life’s pleasures and are able to relax, have fun, and let yourself play.

    This is also your energy center for sensuality, sexuality, and honoring your desires. A balanced sacral chakra means you’re more likely to have a healthy relationship with your body, and it also means you’re more likely to have healthy intimate relationships with others.

    Below, you’ll find 35 sacral chakra affirmations to help keep the flow of energy moving steadily and harmoniously in and out of this energy center. I recommend repeating these affirmations whenever you feel like you’re having a hard time connecting with one or more of the attributes associated with the sacral chakra. For instance, you might feel uninspired, unexcited about life, or maybe you don’t feel connected to your body.

    Find the affirmations that resonate most and commit to repeating them throughout the day. You might also find it helpful to write your affirmations on post-it notes and stick them somewhere they’re easily visible throughout the day.

    Root Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Root Chakra

    Root Chakra Healing: Open & Balance the Root Chakra
    Pin this for later! Root Chakra Healing: Opening & Balancing the Root Chakra

    What is the Root Chakra?

    Located at the base of your spine, the root chakra is your body’s energy center for safety, strength, security, groundedness, and inner peace. Your root chakra acts as your foundation. This is where you build your strength, power, and stability so that energy can freely and effortlessly flow throughout your entire body.

    A helpful metaphor is to think of your root chakra like the roots of a tree. With strong roots, you’ll remain stable, firm, and supported, no matter which way the wind blows. And that’s truly what your root chakra does for you; with an open and balanced root chakra, you’ll remain grounded, centered, and calm, no matter what’s going on in your external world.

    Does this mean everything’s perfect all the time? Absolutely not. A balanced root chakra signifies that you feel firm in your place in life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have hopes and dreams for something more.

    However, because you feel so solid and steady, you’re not desperate or distressed as you wait for your dreams to manifest. Rather, you’re able to let go, trust, and ground yourself to the present moment, knowing that all is truly going to be okay.

    In this post, we’ll dive deep into root chakra healing and discuss 14 powerful practices for opening, balancing, and healing the root chakra. First, here are some of the key attributes of the root chakra:

    • Sanskrit Name: Muladhara (Mula: “root”; Adhara: “support” or “base”)
    • Location: Base of spine
    • Color: Red
    • Body Parts: Legs, Colon, Kidneys, Prostate, Bladder, Tailbone
    • Symbol: Four-petaled lotus with a square in the middle
    • Element: Earth
    • Mantra: LAM
    • Affirmation: I am
    • Balanced Attributes: Secure, Grounded, Strong, Centered, Stable, Steady, Safe, Peaceful, Supported, All Basic Needs Are Met
    • Imbalanced Attributes: Insecure, Anxious, Depressed, Scattered, Disconnected, Restless, Fearful, Cynical, Neglected, Worried
    • Fundamental Need: Survival

    Root Chakra Healing

    Even though each of your body’s energy centers has its own distinct role, it’s important to remember that all of your chakras, along with your life force (prana) and energy channels (nadis), act as one whole system.

    So when one is blocked, it affects the rest of your chakra system, causing other energy centers to become underactive or overactive.

    That’s why root chakra healing is one of the most profound self-care practices you can do for your mind, body, and spirit. As your foundation, it’s important to maintain an open and balanced root chakra in order to keep your entire chakra system in balance.

    I like to think of it like this: your root chakra represents your basic needs, like warmth, rest, and security. If one of these basic needs isn’t being met, it’s really hard to focus on things like creativity, passion, love, and intuition.

    So first, you have to take the time to create a solid and stable foundation for yourself. Once you do this, you can more easily focus on all the other aspects that make you who you are, including your creative energy, the things that bring you joy, and connecting with your spiritual self.

    Below, you’ll find 14 powerful root chakra healing practices to open, balance, and activate this important energy center. You can use these practices as part of your daily routine, or pick some to do when you’re feeling imbalanced and misaligned. I encourage you to begin with the very first practice (ensuring your basic needs are being met) and then focusing particularly on the practices that resonate the most with you.

Each bundle includes a Chakra Healing eBook, Chakra Healing Workbook, and 8-Week Chakra Healing Guide. Begin your lifelong journey to deep and lasting healing today.

    Ensure Basic Needs Are Being Met

    The root chakra acts as your foundation, and at your most basic level, before anything else, you have physiological and safety needs that need to be met in order to have a solid and stable foundation. These needs include food, water, warmth, rest, security, and safety.

    While the rest of the practices on this list are powerful on their own, nothing can bring you long-term healing if your basic needs aren’t being met.

    Unfortunately, depending on your life situation, this isn’t always easy. What do you do if food isn’t always readily available? What if you don’t feel safe and secure in your environment? What if your busy schedule doesn’t allow for rest? There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer here. So this is the best advice I can give you: don’t be afraid to ask for and accept help from others.

    And also don’t be afraid to ask for help from the Universe. For most of my life, I wasn’t someone who would talk to a higher power. It wasn’t until recent years that I began sitting down and handing over my worries to the Universe.

    I don’t say this to make you feel good; I say this because it’s my authentic truth: every single time I’ve actually paused and spoken to the Universe, my requests have always been answered. Sometimes, in minutes. Sometimes, hours. Sometimes, days. But never, ever am I ignored.

    Meditation

    Meditation is a powerful practice for healing all of your chakras, but there’s something especially powerful when it comes to root chakra healing. Meditating in the morning can be especially profound because it allows you to get grounded, centered, and stable as you start your day. Use meditation to connect with your foundation and to breathe calm, strength, and peace into every cell of your body.

    A simple breathing meditation can be effective in root chakra healing. You might also choose to connect with your root chakra by envisioning it as a bright red glowing orb at the base of your spine. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter. You can also recite some grounding affirmations as you do this (see below).

    There’s tons of meditation resources and apps to help you get started. My personal favorite is Insight Timer.

    Grounding Affirmations

    The use of positive affirmations can be a powerful healing practice that supports your total well-being: mind, body, and spirit. For root chakra healing, focus on affirmations specifically dedicated to helping you feel grounded, stable, secure, calm, strong, peaceful, and centered.

    You can recite affirmations as you wake up in the morning, during meditation, as you commute to work, in your journal, as you wind down for the evening, and any time you need to take a step back and allow a wave of calm to wash over you.

    I’ve written some of my favorite root chakra affirmations below. Also be sure to check out my post, 35 Root Chakra Affirmations to Remain Strong, Steady, and Grounded.

    • I am safe and secure.
    • I am rooted in this present moment.
    • I am strong, steady, and grounded.
    • I have access to all the resources I need to survive and thrive.
    • I am equipped with all the tools I need to succeed.
    • Everything I need comes to me at exactly the right place and time.
    • I vibrate powerful, abundant, peaceful energy and attract this same energy in return.
    • Deep inner peace is my natural state.
    • Even when the world around me feels chaotic, I remain rooted firmly to the ground.
    • All my needs are always met.
    • I have everything I need.

    Connect to the Earth

    The root chakra is associated with the earth, and one of the most powerful healing activities you can do is to immerse yourself in nature and let your bare feet touch the ground. You might also find a quiet spot to sit outside where you can journal, meditate, or just simply be. If you’re a gardener, you might choose to go outside and work in your garden, allowing your bare hands to dig into the earth.

    Nature is one of the greatest healers in the universe. When you take the time to connect with the earth, you connect with your roots, your foundation, and the truest, most authentic part of you.

    Breathing Exercises

    It isn’t always possible to stop what you’re doing to meditate in the middle of the day, but a breathing exercise is a more than suitable replacement that can help you to regain your feelings of calm, balance, and inner peace. Alternate nostril breathing is one of my favorite breathing practices, as this simple yet profound practice is known to calm the mind, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote overall well-being.

    Here’s another simple breathing exercise to help you feel centered and grounded:

    Inhale deeply to a count of four. Pause for a full second at the top of your breath. Then exhale for a count of five. Pause at the end of your exhale. Then repeat the cycle. Do this as many times as needed to calm your mind and ground you to the present moment.

    Gratitude

    As you go about your day, notice all the things that contribute to your open and balanced root chakra. These things might include the locks on your doors that keep you safe; the money in your bank account; the food in your kitchen; the blankets that keep you warm; your strong, healthy body; access to clean water; and more.

    As you notice everything in your life that allows you to have a solid foundation, say a little thank you for each thing. These can often be the things we take for granted, so acknowledging all the positive aspects of your life with sincere appreciation can be a powerful reminder of your abundance.

    And don’t forget to express gratitude for your own inner qualities and talents. For instance, you might express gratitude for your ability to stay grounded and calm in all situations. You can also express gratitude for your inner strength and resilience. All of these things contribute to a balanced, open, and healed root chakra.

    Journaling

    Journaling is a profound practice to get in touch with your inner self, gently probe your thoughts and beliefs, explore your feelings, and connect with your body’s energy centers. For journaling specifically focused on root chakra healing, you can take a variety of approaches. You can center your practice on writing root chakra affirmations, write down what you’re grateful for, or answer journal prompts that pertain to the root chakra. For root chakra journal prompts, check out my post, 30 Journal Prompts to Open and Heal the Root Chakra.

    When you sit down to journal, first set the intention to connect with your root chakra. Seal this intention with a few deep, grounding breaths. Choose to write with honesty and authenticity, and release any judgment or self-criticism that may come up. It’s important that you make this time a judgment-free zone. The path to healing is paved in radical honesty and acceptance.

    Visualization

    Visualization exercises can be beneficial for root chakra healing in a number of ways. One way to visualize is to follow the practice outlined in the Meditation section: connect with your root chakra by visualizing a bright red glowing orb at the base of your spine. As you breathe in, see the orb getting bigger. As you breathe out, see it growing brighter.

    You can also practice visualization by envisioning your highest self with an open and balanced root chakra. What does a day in your life look like when your root chakra is completely balanced? How do you feel? How do you carry yourself?

    Visualize some unexpected obstacles appearing during your day, and see yourself reacting to these obstacles with a sense of calm, stability, and steadiness. After your visualization, see if you can align with that balanced and centered version of yourself as you continue through your day.

    Yoga

    Almost any well-rounded yoga practice will support total body chakra healing, as yoga supports the free flow of energy (prana) throughout your body and can clear any blockages that may exist in your energy channels (nadis). Approach your yoga practice with an open and authentic heart.

    For root chakra healing poses (asanas), check out the list below. During your practice, focus on connecting with your root chakra. Breathe into that spot at the base of your spine, and when your feet are on the floor, focus on setting up a strong and stable foundation for your body (as well as connecting to the earth).

    • Mountain Pose
    • Downward Dog
    • Tree Pose
    • Lunge Pose
    • Warrior II

    Aromatherapy

    Sense of smell can be one of the most underutilized senses for restoring balance to your internal energy, as scent has the ability to both soothe and revitalize. For root chakra healing, use earth-scented essential oils, such as Cedarwood, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Basil, Patchouli, Black Pepper, Geranium. For more information on how to use essential oils to heal the chakras, check out my post, A Guide to Essential Oils for Chakra Healing.

    Color Therapy

    Color therapy is the act of immersing yourself in the color associated with that chakra. For root chakra healing, this means immersing yourself in all things red. For instance, you can eat red food, wear red clothes, light red candles, write with red pen, and surround your space with red items.

    I often hear the question, “Does color therapy really work?” I wholeheartedly believe your success with color therapy is entirely tied to your intentions and belief. When you approach this practice, first set the intention to connect with your root chakra. You might decide that every time you see a certain red item, you’ll recite a grounding root chakra affirmation. You might also spend some time visualizing a bright red orb at the base of your spine.

    At the heart of it, don’t simply surround yourself with the color red just for the sake of it; do so with intention. Decide that you are going to cultivate a sense of groundedness, stability, and strength throughout your day.

    I also like to combine color therapy with other root chakra healing practices, such as aromatherapy and journaling.

    Food

    While we often think of food as affecting our physical selves, it also profoundly affects our mental, emotional, and spiritual selves as well. Just as eating too much junk food can be linked to anxiety, stress, and negative overall well-being, eating the right types of food can help you to feel calm, stable, and secure.

    For root chakra healing foods, focus on root vegetables such as sweet potatoes and carrots. You might also choose red fruits such as apples, cherries, and strawberries. Finally, as your root chakra is associated with strength, make sure you consume enough protein, which you can find in beans and nut butters.

    Crystals & Gemstones

    Each chakra has powerful crystals associated with it, and these crystals can be used in various ways to balance and heal the energy within. For root chakra healing, use grounding crystals such as Hematite, Obsidian, Onyx, and Red Jasper. (You can find a list of grounding crystals and stones here.)

    So how exactly do you use crystals for root chakra healing? After cleansing and programming your crystals, you can meditate with them, wear crystals as jewelry, keep them in your pocket throughout the day, create crystal grids, or keep them in a prominent spot nearby where you can easily see them.

    Whenever you see or hold your chosen crystal, set the intention to ground yourself to the present moment and feel a sense of security and stability, no matter what’s happening in your external world. You might also choose to recite a root chakra affirmation, such as “I am grounded,” or “All my needs are always met.”

    Here’s a few more posts to help you get started with using crystals and gemstones to heal the chakras:

    Connect to Your Highest Self

    What does this mean? Who is your highest self?

    Your highest self is your truest, most authentic self. This part of you is untouched by external circumstances, appearances, and experiences. It is eternal and unchanging. This essence exists beyond your body and physical appearances.

    If you stripped everything else away, this part of you would remain: the real and true you.

    Your highest self is also the person you are when all of your chakras are open and balanced and energy is flowing freely throughout your body. And this all starts with your foundation: your root chakra.

    One of the most powerful chakra healing practices you can do is to spend a day walking in the shoes of your highest, most authentic self. For root chakra healing, set the intention to walk through a day as your highest self with an open, healed, and balanced root chakra. Start the day feeling grounded, secure, stable, strong, and supported. Keep this version of you in mind as you interact with others and also in the way you talk to yourself. Anytime you find yourself straying from your highest self, simply choose to realign.

    It may help to first journal about your highest self so you have a clear picture of who that person is before you start your day. No matter what, remember to refrain from self-criticism and judgment, and have compassion and love for all parts of you. Let this experience serve your highest good and support your growth.

    Healing the Root Chakra

    Have you ever felt insecure about your place in life? Maybe there are things happening outside of you that make you feel like you’ve lost your sense of control. Or maybe uncertainty about your future means you’re constantly living in a state of worry and fear.

    I think most of us, at some point in our lives, have experienced these unsettling feelings. It’s especially common to get caught up reliving mistakes of the past or worrying about the future.

    Unfortunately, while those worries and fears usually come from a place of self-preservation, they take us away from the present moment and do little to support our total well-being.

    That’s why doing the deep, inner work to heal the source of what makes you feel uncertain, scattered, anxious, disconnected, and/or fearful is so important. And that all starts with the root chakra.

    Located at the base of your spine, your root chakra is your energy center for safety, stability, groundedness, strength, and ease within your own body. When your root chakra is open, it means that your basic physiological and safety needs are being met and you have the resources you need to survive.

    Beyond this, it also signifies that you feel firm in your place in life. This doesn’t mean everything is absolutely perfect. Rather, it means that you feel confident and secure with where you are and where you’re going. You have the strength and self-trust to continue down your sacred path, wherever it may lead.

    The root chakra acts as your foundation. Your body’s other six main energy centers open you up to creativity, confidence, love, communication, intuition, and spirituality. But in order for these chakras to stay open and balanced, your foundation must first be stable and secure.

    So when we talk about chakras, we have to start with your first chakra. Your base. Your foundation. Your root.

    Because once the ground beneath you is stable, that’s when you can really begin to not just survive but thrive.

    What is the Root Chakra?

    Located at the base of your spine, your root chakra is your energy center for safety, stability, and staying grounded. You may also hear it referred to as your first chakra, as it’s the lowest energy center in your body.

    As the chakra located closest to the earth, the root chakra represents your foundation. This is where you build your inner strength and power so that the flow of energy can easily move freely throughout your entire body.

    When your root chakra is balanced, this means that your basic needs are being met: food, shelter, warmth, rest, security, and safety. It also means that you have a good relationship with your body and that you recognize your body’s ability to support and take care of you.

    A balanced root chakra also signifies that you feel firm in your place of life. Now, to be clear, this doesn’t mean you have to settle or that you can’t have hopes and dreams for something more. Rather, it means that in this moment, you know you’re exactly where you’re meant to be. It signifies that you trust the path ahead and aren’t living in a space of worry and fear.

    If you want to learn more about practices to balance your root chakra, you can check out my post on root chakra healing practices here.

    Below, you’ll find 35 root chakra affirmations to help you feel strong, grounded, and secure. You can use these root chakra affirmations in meditation, or you can save them and repeat them whenever your energy feels out of balance and/or misaligned.

    I also recommend incorporating root chakra affirmations into your morning routine, as they set you up to approach the day feeling strong and empowered. This means that no matter what happens during the day, you’ll remain calm and peaceful, knowing that you live in a universe that always supports your well-being.

    And to go even deeper into balancing your root chakra, I’ve also put together 30 journal prompts to open and heal your root chakra. You’ll also get these journal prompts, along with the affirmations below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.

    What is a Chakra?

    When you’re first learning about chakras, it can be a little confusing to understand what exactly they are, especially without a proper explanation before diving right in. Some guided meditations may jump straight to describing these glowing orbs of colored light within you, which can often be more than a little disconcerting at first.

    So let’s simplify and break down what exactly a chakra is and why it’s important.

    Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning “wheel” or “disk.” A commonly accepted definition for the word chakra is a wheel of energy in your body. You might also think of it like a vortex of energy within you.

    What makes it confusing is that this vortex isn’t actually a physical thing like your bones or organs. You can’t see your chakras in an x-ray. Rather, you experience them through feelings, sensations, and your own intuition.

    So what exactly does a chakra do? Ideally, your life force, or prana, is flowing to and through your chakras at all times (through energy channels called nadis), which allows you to live in alignment with your highest self.

    Energy is meant to flow, and when your chakras are open, your life force energy can flow freely in and out of each of your energy centers. (You might hear the words chakras and energy centers used interchangeably.)

    But what happens when a chakra becomes blocked? When one of your chakras becomes blocked, your life force energy stagnates. This results in mental, physical, emotional, and/or spiritual blockages.

    For instance, grief and betrayal are both two experiences that may result in blockages in the heart chakra. As a result, you may experience feelings of loneliness, depression, distrust, and anger.

    In this post, we’re going to focus on the seven main chakras, but there are actually 114 chakras throughout your body, and some people believe there to be more. It’s important to keep in mind that while each chakra has its own role and individual attributes, they act as one whole system. When one chakra is blocked or overactive, this affects the energy throughout your entire chakra system.

    Below, I’ll explain a little more about the chakra colors and offer a rundown on the attributes and meanings of each of your seven main chakras.

    And if you’re interested in exploring more about chakras and want to begin your own powerful journey of chakra healing, you can check out my Chakra Healing Bundle, which contains a Chakra Healing eBook, Chakra Healing Workbook, and 8-Week Chakra Healing Guide. These healing resources are designed to help you begin a profound journey into aligning with your highest self, healing your soul, and cultivating unconditional self-love.

    History of Chakra Colors

    You may be familiar with the idea that chakras each have a corresponding color connected to it. Here’s the list:

    • Root Chakra: Red
    • Sacral Chakra: Orange
    • Solar Plexus Chakra: Yellow
    • Heart Chakra: Green
    • Throat Chakra: Light Blue
    • Third Eye Chakra: Indigo (Also associated with blue and purple.)
    • Crown Chakra: Purple (Also associated with white and gold.)

    While these are the commonly accepted colors for the chakras, this is actually a fairly recent development in the history of chakras. In fact, most ancient traditions never associated chakras with specific colors. Instead, they were more likely to associate a chakra with a specific mantra or shape.

    So where did the idea of the chakra colors come from? In 1970, author Christopher Hills first wrote about the chakra colors in his book, Nuclear Evolution: Discovery of the Rainbow Body. Since this original publishing, the chakra colors I listed above have become widely accepted throughout the western world.

    So what does this mean? Someone just made the chakra colors up? Does that mean the chakra colors a lie?

    Here’s my answer: No, but it’s up to you to determine whether the chakra colors resonate with you.

    I know people who personally resonate with the chakra colors and who have used color therapy as a form of healing their chakras. Color therapy is the practice of surrounding yourself with the color of the chakra you want to open, activate, and/or heal. For instance, if you want to connect with your heart chakra, you might wear a green shirt, write in green pen, eat green vegetables, drink a green smoothie, and place green items around your work station.

    Additionally, many energy healers sense and can often see certain colors within and surrounding other people; these colors often correlate directly with the designated chakra colors.

    But if you personally don’t resonate with the chakra colors? That’s okay. Maybe you’ve tried some chakra meditations that instruct you to connect with each chakra by perceiving it as a brightly colored orb in its designated color, but you don’t feel like this does anything for you.

    Like I said, that’s completely okay. You might choose instead to view it as a swirling vortex, a colorless ball of energy, or a bright white or golden light.

    You can also choose to focus less on the color and more on a different aspect of the chakra, such as its associated mantra. I’ve listed the mantras for each chakra in the next section.

    Whether or not you associate with the chakra colors, know that there’s no right or wrong path as long as you’re willing to do the deep inner work to connect with and heal your chakras.

    When you think of the effects that food has on your body, it’s likely that you immediately think of the physical impacts; through conscious food choices, you can incorporate food into your diet that might help you lose or gain weight and/or muscle.

    But your food choices don’t just affect your physical self; they have a profound impact on your mental, emotional, and spiritual self as well. In fact, your mind, body, and spirit are all affected every single day by your food intake in ways that you may not even see.

    That’s why intentionally choosing food that works with your internal energy is so important: because the effects extend beyond your physical self and digestive system and have an impact on your entire well-being.

    Below, you’ll find a list of healing foods for each of your body’s energy centers along with a handy chart you can print or save to your phone.

    If you want to connect with a particular chakra, incorporate foods into your snacks and meals that correspond with that chakra. Be intentional with this practice. For instance, if you’re connecting with your root chakra and decide to add sweet potatoes to one of your meals, set the intention to connect with your root chakra before you start eating. As you eat, remain mindful of the energy in and around your root chakra. You might also internally recite some root chakra affirmations as you’re eating. (You can find links to affirmations for each of your body’s energy centers in the sections below.)

    For an overview on all the chakras, you can check out my post on the chakra colors and meanings here. You can also find the entire catalog of chakra articles on this site on this page.

    And if you want to learn more about opening, activating, and healing your body’s energy centers, be sure to check out my Ultimate Chakra Healing Bundle. The bundle comes with a Chakra Healing eBook, Chakra Healing Workbook, and 8-Week Chakra Healing Guide. (All items can be purchased individually as well!)
