I have a gut feeling this is going to become controversial, but I still wanted to share with you how I’ve been using prayer and affirmations over my chakras to find healing and happiness. And give you a free printable! Read on to find out how and let me know your thoughts…
When faced with a health crisis, I realized that traditional medicine is not the only answer. In addition to good old fashioned drugs, I started using Eastern healing modalities like meditation, acupuncture, yoga, and Ayurveda. As a Christian, I found these healing modalities in sync with prayer, not in conflict to it.
After much research, I realized that an answer does not exist. There are Christians who view this the same as I do, and there are Christians who feel that these modalities are against the Christian dogma. Neither view is right or wrong; I honestly believe your healing should be whatever works best for you. This is my personal experience that I’m sharing with you. Agree. Disagree. But let’s all respect each other’s differences in opinions.
Before I share how I combined the two, let’s start off with a little chakra 101.
Chakras are energy centers in the body that help to regulate everything from your organs to immune system to emotions. “The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body.” (source) Each chakra has a color and a purpose.
The 7 Chakras
The chakras begin from bottom up.
Crown Chakra – spirituality, pure bliss, wisdom
Third Eye Chakra – intuition, imagination, wisdom, decision making, inspiration
Throat Chakra – communication, self-experession, personal truth
Heart Chakra – love, joy, inner peace, connection, compassion
Solar Plexus Chakra – confidence, control, self-esteem, power
Sacral Chakra – the connection to and ability to accept others and new experiences, creativity, emotions
Root Chakra – foundation, stability, security, basic needs, grounding
The Power Combination
Throughout meditation, yoga, and acupuncture, the focus is on the energy in your body, often times scanning up and down over your body. One day during acupuncture, I started the scan over the chakras that I learned in meditation, and ended up praying over my body and over the chakras.
This prayer grew into affirmations and Bible verses. It’s now how I wake up and go to bed. I also use it any time I feel stressed, unfocused, or am receiving body work like acupuncture or massage.
I even turned it into a printable and I framed it to hang up in my bathroom so I can see it every day and breathe in the healing and happiness. Want your own copy? Click HERE for a printable version! Or if you want to make something like this on your own, it was super easy to create on PicMonkey.
