How to Personalize Your Own Chakra Mantras: A Journaling Exercise

You’ve probably heard about the chakras, but have you heard about chakra mantras?
 
Chakra mantras are verbal vibrations that, whether spoken out loud or in the mind, are taken in by the energetic centers of the body.
 
The seven major chakras are spinning wheels of energy along your spine. Balancing them can bring a whole new level of empowerment to your life.
 
That sounds awesome, but how do we go about balancing the chakras? Yoga poses and meditation can be great tools.
 
But beyond yoga and meditation, we can incorporate the use of mantras – or in this case, chakra mantras – to activate, balance, and heal these energy centers.

How Chakra Mantras Work

Each person is different. It takes some self-knowledge and introspection to really harness the power of this energy system.
 
The real power of the chakras lies in our ability to personalize what they mean for us, to look deeply at our life experiences, and design our own chakra mantras accordingly.
 
To be assimilated into the body, the words of the mantras must be repeated with emotion and they must be believed. It may take some time to incorporate belief, but this is why repetition (and also visualization) is so important for mantras.
 
These mantras are designed to speak specifically to each chakra in order to change the beliefs we hold about ourselves in the particular area of our lives that the chakras govern. This helps to turn things around in any situations where we might feel stuck or overstimulated, to slow or speed the spinning vortex of energy – the chakra.
 
It helps to activate and bring attention to that chakra while saying the associated chakra mantra. A good mantra provokes a strong, warm, and positive emotion that we aim to feel in that particular energy center. Remember this when thinking about your life and your personal chakra mantras.

At the same time, being completely honest with yourself when asking these questions will help you to come up with the best, most supportive mantras for you.
 
And once you learn your own chakra mantras, you can use these to meditate while placing your hands over and focusing on each specific chakra – one at a time. You can also use them during chakra-related yoga poses.
 
Don’t be afraid to come back and do this exercise again because things change quickly when we do the work. Your mantras are guaranteed to change, so don’t forget to reinvestigate.
 
Happy chakra journey!
