How To Use Affirmations for the Heart Chakra

Chakra affirmations are an effective way to unblock your Heart Chakra. So, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of a Heart Chakra blockage listed above, be confident that there’s a way out of it.

Here’s how to use affirmations for the Heart Chakra.

1. Repeat the Affirmation Regularly

It’s important to repeat affirmations on a regular basis in order to feel the healing effects on your subtle body. Ideally, try to practice them on a daily basis – saying affirmations at the start of your day can be a great way to create a positive mental attitude which stays with you all day. 

You can say affirmations in your mind or out loud. Some people find it useful to say affirmations into the mirror to really feel the impact of the words as you speak them. 

What matters most is consistency. Making these positive affirmations a part of your daily routine is a powerful way to get in touch with you Heart Chakra.

2. Believe in the Affirmation

Focusing on the energy you’re sending out through the chakra affirmation is key to realizing them. You need to believe in the power of every single affirmation and embody it. After all, repeating the words isn’t enough if you don’t feel they’re true.

In general, believing in the chakra affirmation is part of their success. So, choose an affirmation that means something to you and then make sure you connect to the words’ energy for maximum effectiveness.

3. Remain Patient

It’s crucial to remain patient, maintain faith, and have consistency while working on balancing and healing your chakras. With affirmations, you won’t necessarily see results overnight. 

They take time and dedication to make a change. Remember that you’re working on reprogramming your subconscious, and this process isn’t instant. Plus, blockages in your energy paths aren’t easy to break through.

All in all, there’s no rule of how much it takes for chakra affirmations to work. Some mindset coaches believe it takes about 30 – 60 days to see results from affirmations, but it varies from one person to the other.

4. Focus on the Chakra Location

For Heart affirmations, it’s important to focus on the chest (in other words the location of the Heart Chakra). This helps you channel all your energy toward the Heart Chakra and work on healing it properly.

Some people find it helpful to visualize a green light (the green color of the Heart Chakra symbol) radiating from your heart center as you speak the words.

5. Use the Present Tense

When working with chakra affirmations, remember to use the present tense. A phrase like “I am courageous” is better than saying “I will be courageous.” That’s because it gives you the feeling that you already possess the quality.

Saying the phrase “I am” instead of “I will” is much more influential on your mind, as it embodies the quality.

6. Combine with Other Healing Practices

Another benefit of affirmations is that they are very easy to combine with other Heart Chakra healing practices, for example:

  • Say an affirmation at the beginning of a meditation practice to help focus the mind.
  • Before beginning a Heart Chakra journaling session, say an affirmation to get your mind exploring your emotions. 
  • Combine affirmations with breathing techniques (pranayama) to help clear the find and make it easier to connect with the words you are saying.
  • Say an affirmation at the start of your yoga practice, like you would set an intention, to help connect the body and mind.

How To Choose the Right Chakra Affirmation for You

First, you need to focus on the affirmations that reflect your needs. For example, Root Chakra affirmations are typically concerned with stability and security. On the other hand, Throat Chakra affirmations are about authenticity and self-expression. 

It’s better to channel all your attention on one chakra instead of combining a mix of chakras into one affirmation.

Choose an affirmation that resonates with you and how you feel at the present moment. Reading the right affirmation phrase usually evokes an emotional response in your soul.

Alternatively, you could come up with your own chakra affirmation for your particular situation, or you could adapt an affirmation from the list above. 

Either way, the chakra affirmation you use should move you from within and feel like it belongs to you.
