100 Heart Chakra Affirmations!

Today we will be sharing with you 100 heart chakra healing affirmations.

Heart Chakra healing affirmations are positive statements that can be used to bring balance to your Anahata.

The Anahata, or heart chakra as it is more commonly known as, is the fourth of our energy centres.

The heart chakra is associated with love, compassion and spiritual aspiration. Anahata is the air Chakra and is crucial for our ability to open our heart to loving ourselves and one another.

You can use affirmations to exercise your heart chakra energy and maintain the perfect balance through building mental thought patterns around the key principles of the heart chakra.

By the way, there are seven chakras in total, and balancing your heart chakra energy is just one of the series.

Once you have recited the list of affirmations below, I encourage you to check out my wider series of Chakras.

 

 

What colour is associated with the heart chakra?

The heart chakra is associated with the colour green, but it’s also associated with the colour pink

Green is a very soothing and calming energy which promotes feelings of harmony and security as its associated with nature.

Heart-Chakra-Affirmations

Pink is a colour of sweetness, romance and a loving sensitivity. All of these energies are what produces true unconditional love for another, in spite of any flaws or imperfections.

As such, when the heart chakra is open, or in the process of opening, the capacity for unconditional love and acceptance is strong, and being able to experience this feeling naturally raises your vibration.

 

Symptoms of an unbalanced heart chakra

The heart chakra can go inactive due to both physical and emotional hurtful situations and a change in environment.

It manifests into blocking of energy flow or overflow of energy, either of them being considered problematic cases.
Below are the symptoms to recognise the imbalance in heart chakra:

  • Jealousy
  • Fear of intimacy
  • Trying to please; co-dependency.
  • Feeling of closed down
  • Feeling of either victimization or rescuer.
  • Overly defensive.
  • Extreme isolation; anti-social.
  • Yearning for approval from others.
  • Not being able to forgive and holding onto grudges even for the slightest of things.
  • Respiratory ailments including lung infections, breathing issues, and bronchitis.
  • Circulatory and heart-related problems.

You experience ‘heart chakra pain,’ if your Anahata chakra is blocked.

 

Where is heart chakra?

The heart chakra is located in the centre of your chest. It is the fourth chakra, but the first of the higher chakras.

The lower chakras include the solar plexus being the third, the sacral chakra being the second and the root chakra being the first and the base.

Once you master the lower three chakras, you will have a solid foundation to begin working on the higher chakras.

When the heart chakra is out of balance, you may lack the ability to be open and receptive to others. You may not be able to forgive easily and/or lack compassion as well as hold onto grudges.

 

When does the heart chakra close?

Many times, someone who has been deeply wounded or heartbroken will have a closed heart chakra, which is a normal response to this type of pain.

Although, the only way to truly heal the heart chakra, is to open your heart to love again.

Heart-Chakra-Affirmations

The good news for those who have experienced heartbreak, is that if you’re nervous to open your heart to love again with another person, you can simply start by loving yourself, which the heart chakra is also associated with.

The ability to love another starts with the ability to love the self. When you love yourself, you know what your needs are, you respect your own boundaries and you essentially properly nurture and ‘parent’ yourself.

 

Why is it important to open up the heart chakra?

As you can see, the symptoms of the heart chakra blockage can severely impact your normal functioning.

It can destroy your happiness and peace of mind. Your self-respect and confidence will disappear. Your relationships suffer immensely and often result in breakups.

If you allow this state of affairs to continue for long, you would slip into depression. This causes more negative thoughts and feelings, leading to the blockage getting worse.

Once you are trapped in this vicious cycle of depression and chakra imbalance, it would be a monumental task to get out of it.

The ideal way to deal with a heart chakra imbalance would be to identify and tackle it as early as possible.

Top tip:

Below is an excellent introduction to the heart chakra:

 

 

Affirmations for opening up the heart chakra

Affirmations are positive statements that you repeat to boost your confidence and self-love.

As the heart chakra is linked to emotions and feelings, affirmations related to love, compassion, and healing can help.

 

How do affirmations help?

Repeating affirmations can bring in more positive emotions and feelings over time.

As more positivity flows in the heart chakra, the negative energy that is blocking it gets annulled or forced out. Ultimately, this will help in opening up the chakra and regain its balance.

 

How to use affirmations to unblock the heart chakra?

Affirmations offer the best results when repeated with focus and a calm mind. This means early in the morning and just before bedtime are the perfect times for repeating them.

Take care to set aside enough time for the exercise so that you will be undisturbed.

You may repeat them aloud, or in your mind, write them down in a journal, listen or watch a pre-recorded track. You may also make them part of a vision board.

Self-Care Morning Routine Ideas – Ultimate Guide!

Self-Care Morning Routine Ideas – Ultimate Guide!

Today I will be talking you through some self-care morning routine ideas.

Just imagine, the sun is rising, the curtains add an orange beam to the day, and here you are, presented with a brand-new day, a new beginning, and a fresh start.

The times we are living at the moment are tough enough for everyone, but we always find a way to pull through, and this is how we recommend you do it.

Creating an ideal and sufficient routine for your morning puts you on the right track for the rest of your day.

Every morning, I get up way earlier than I need to and practice a self-care routine.

I developed my routine gradually, one piece at a time, over past few years. You probably shouldn’t try to jump into such a rigorous and lengthy morning routine right away. Grow into it.

So, we gathered up some simple morning self-care rituals that will boost your mood, set the right tone to your day, and help you relax.

I hope this guide helps you develop your own routine and gives you some ideas to create your own habits.

 

 

Why is a self-care morning routine so important?

Having a self-care morning routine will set you up perfectly for the day ahead. Starting the day with the intention to take care of yourself will go a long way.

Often at times it may be hard to find the time for yourself during the work week, or even the weekend, but the impact it has on your mindset is definitely worth the effort.

In either case, you need to establish a new routine with fresh, healthy habits. Following these morning self-care routine tips might be the change that you need.

Try these out, and see if they make a difference in how you start your day. Who knows – it might completely get rid of the crankyness first thing.

 

Self-Care Morning Routine Ideas – Ultimate Guide!

 

Wake up early

For you stubborn night owls out there, I know this sounds bad already, but it actually is possible to get out of bed early in the morning.

Let me tell you why I love waking up early.

wake-up

I wake up ideally at 5am or when the sun rises and daylight starts. I know 5am is too early for most, so try 6am or 7am.

As I’ve gotten used to waking up with natural daylight, I have now inhabited a natural inner clock, which means I naturally wake up at the same time every morning – without using an alarm.
And it’s really fulfilling to not have to stress about time and rushing in the morning, because everything can be taken nice and slow.

 

Don’t start your day with electronics

Your first impulse in the morning is probably to check your phone. While you can do that briefly, we recommend that you stay off your electronics and away from the media for the beginning portion of your day.

This will help you start your day off on the right foot and keep your spirits positive for a little bit longer.

 

Meditation

Meditation is a direct action (by actively doing nothing) to increase the amount of clarity you mind has, decompress your stress levels, and give you perspective on the day-to-day.

In my experience, I tend to give myself a 15-20 meditation period first thing in the morning.

Meditation is also a great way to combat social media addiction by lowering the amount of stimulation you have.

It’s also a great way to slow down life when you feel that life is moving a bit too fast for your liking.

It can be hard in the beginning to get into it, but I assure you that meditation is something no one regrets doing.

If you’re someone whose mind is racing from the moment you wake up, meditation can be a powerful way to connect with yourself on a deeper level.

While practicing meditation isn’t a cure-all for anxiety or nervous thoughts, it’s still an excellent opportunity to destress, centre your thoughts, and bring awareness to the present moment.

 

 

Practice gratitude

Feeling grateful for a new day goes a long way.

This pure selfless act goes both ways on you and the people around you. It doesn’t always have to be a “thank you” note; it can be a positive emotion that benefits your body.

Self-Care-Morning-Routine

It enhances your overall health and sense of well-being. Additionally, deepens your relations, improves optimism, and increases the feeling of self-control.

I’ve been trying to get into journaling because sometimes I feel like I have so many thoughts in my head and nowhere to put them.

My journal is almost like a brain dump on paper, but it really helps to spend a few minutes a day writing down my thoughts and what I’m grateful for.

 

 

Move your body

We all know how important exercise can be in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. However, exercising in the morning has its own benefits.

Taking just 10 minutes for some stretches will definitely make you feel more energised for the day.

Morning exercise will give you an extra glow, a better night’s sleep, burn extra fat and boost your metabolism.

You don’t necessarily have to do a full workout, but just spending time doing some stretches or yoga will make you feel so much more energetic and ready for the day.

When we exercise our brain produces those feel-good hormones which make us feel happier and lift our mood.

Exercise also improves blood flow around the body providing our cells and organs with more oxygen, thus giving us more energy.

Who wouldn’t want to start the day in a great mood and lots of energy? Why not give it a try and see how it goes for you?

Whatever type of exercise suits you, is great. Any exercise is good exercise.

 

Hydrate

Getting enough water is extremely important for our health.

Water helps maintain internal body temperature, lubricates joints, protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues and is beneficial to a healthy digestive system.

By drinking enough water, we are also keeping our body hydrated and refreshed.

Staying hydrated is also important for our brain and cognitive ability. If you want to keep the mind focused then hydration is the key.

When we sleep our bodies are slowly becoming dehydrated, the reason why we usually wake up feeling lethargic.

By drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning we are replacing those lost fluids, hydrating the body ready for the day ahead.

If you are not a great fan of drinking water, why not fill up a bottle the night before, add some sliced fruit and pop in the fridge, for a refreshing fruit infusion come morning.

 

Eat a healthy breakfast

Breakfast is well known to be the most important meal of the day. However, I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve skipped this and had breakfast on the go instead.

Having a nutritious breakfast in the morning tells our body that there are plenty of calories to be had throughout the day.

However, by skipping breakfast and having a quick snack you are telling your body that it needs to conserve not burn those calories. You are literally putting your body into starvation mode.

Missing breakfast also makes us more likely to consume unhealthy snacks, in turn contributing to feeling bloated, sluggish and possible future ill health.

Take time in the morning to eat and have a healthy nutritious breakfast. If you do need to have a quick breakfast on the go try choosing healthy options such as:

  • A protein bar and yogurt or a glass of milk.
  • High-fibre toast or bagel with tablespoon of peanut butter.
  • Low-fat protein shake with fresh/frozen fruit.

 

Affirmations

Daily affirmations are to the mind what exercise is to the body. Repeating affirmations helps to reprogram the unconscious mind for success by eliminating negative and limiting beliefs.

At first, I was a little sceptical about using affirmations, however over time they have helped me have a more positive mindset and believe in myself more.

Examples of positive affirmations:

  • I will be kind to myself today
  • Today I will be present in every moment
  • I will be true to myself and my Today
  • Today is full of endless opportunities
  • I will celebrate my small wins
  • I choose to be happy

There are several ways to use affirmations. You can say them out loud in front of a mirror, write them down in a journal or repeat them in your head like a mantra during meditation.

What’s important is that you find affirmations that resonate with you.

 

 

Visualise your entire day

They say, “you can’t do anything until you see yourself do it.

Visualisation is daydreaming with a purpose, that’s why it’s better to sit back for a moment or two once you wake up and unravel how you want your day to be like or take you to.

Set your mentality and take a deep breath before you demonstrate anything physically.

 

Plan Your To-Do-List

Creating a simple list of what chores and tasks you want to complete throughout the day keeps you organised and grounded.

It enables you to stay focused and lessens the hassle of multiple processing. Besides, what is more, relaxing than to do simple writing along with your morning cup of coffee.

I usually plan out my days before I start my work.

to-do-list

Most days I feel like I have a million things to do and no time to do it all, but I’ve found a lot of success in writing down a daily to-do list.

It’s really encouraging because I get to check things off the list as the day goes on which allows me to see what I was able to get done that day.

Completing daily task will put you on the path to reach your goals.

 

 

Set aside time to read

If the last time you picked up a book was for a school assignment, you’re not giving reading enough credit.

One University of Sussex study found that reading for just six minutes reduced stress levels by 68 percent. (Odds are you’re probably spending that long scrolling through social media before getting out of bed.)

Plus, if you create a designated reading time, you might actually get through all the books in your to-be-read pile.

Top tips

The following books I cannot recommend enough:

 

 

Try podcasting

Another strategy for motivating yourself to get out of bed is saving something special, like a favourite podcast, for the mornings.

If you know you’ll only listen to it before your workday starts, you might be a bit more excited to start your day.

Grab a pair of headphones, press play on the latest episode, and walk to a local park or public garden to listen. Watching the world pass by while you listen is almost meditative.

 

Make your bed

Don’t look at this like a chore, look at it as a way to enhance your space and become more organised.

Not only does making your bed improve your sleep at night, but it also gives you a sense of accomplishment.

This pride and accomplishment in the morning will allow you to set a positive and determined pace for the rest of the day, and who wouldn’t want that?

 

Self-care morning routine Ideas – Final thoughts

Starting a day with a good morning routine is crucial for how the rest of the day goes.

Practicing self-care habits in the morning is really effective for setting a good tone for the day.

That being said, I hope this morning routine and these self-care habits can inspire you to find or start your own morning routine with self-care rituals!

I would love to hear your thoughts on what you are doing to change your life in the coming days and years!
