As mentioned in the previous article, each chakra is said to correspond to a particular color-coded vibrational frequency in the universe which influences our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Note that physical illnesses can affect our energy and so can the mind. This article deals with the use of positive affirmations to balance all seven chakras. The process is described below:
Read this entire process two or three times before you begin to practice it for yourself.
Sit with your feet placed on the floor or lie down. It is advisable not to cross your feet or your hands, no matter which posture you adopt.
State the intention of doing this practice consciously and then go to Nidra.
Familiarize yourself with the location of each of the seven major chakras by re-reading the previous article on this blog. Also familiarize yourself with the color-coded vibrational frequency for each chakra. (VIBGYOR reversed).
Starting with the base chakra, for each of the seven chakras, you will visualize a spinning wheel of energy of the appropriate color. Your mind’s attention should be focused on the location of the chakra and then visualize it spinning face-up in a clockwise direction. With your visualization empowered in Nidra and with your mind focused on the location of the chakra, you can repeat the affirmation 7-21 times for each chakra.
