Heart Chakra Healing Affirmations – 100 Amazing Ideas!

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.

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-Healing-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.

Why is a Growth Mindset Important? – Ultimate Guide!

Why is a Growth Mindset Important? – Ultimate Guide!

Today we will be discussing why is a growth mindset important and some ways to develop one.

Having a “growth mindset” has never been more important than now. The world is changing at an incredibly fast pace, and there are new challenges we must face every day.

Our way of life is changing, norms are changing, and we must keep up and adjust to all of these changes. This is why having a growth mindset is so necessary.

Growth Mindset” is a term you often hear within the world of education, especially when looking for ways to improve academically. But what exactly does it mean, and why is it so important to have a “Growth Mindset?”

 

 

Why is a Growth Mindset Important? – Ultimate Guide!

I while ago, I came across the research of Professor Carol Dweck about how our Mindsets have a massive impact on motivation and, in particular, our motivation to learn new things.

Recent neuroscience has revealed some astonishing revelations about how our brains can be altered to shape intelligence.

The beliefs we hold about our intelligence can greatly impact on the language and behaviour we exhibit on a day-to-day basis.

If these beliefs are rooted in out-dated notions that the brain is static and does not change (what we are born with is our lot), this can greatly impinge on what we are able to achieve in life and how we think about ourselves.

From Dweck’s findings, she coined the terms Fixed and Growth Mindset. We are all a mixture of both. As the names suggest, a Fixed Mindset stems from the belief that the intelligence you are born with is fixed and cannot change, what you are born with is what you have.

Why-is-a-Growth-Mindset-Important?

A Growth Mindset stems from the idea that intelligence can be grown as a result of specific, targeted actions of which we are in control. This is where the Mindset training becomes a tool of self-regulation and can help children to see the reasons behind taking particular actions for their learning.

Having a Growth Mindset is about progress and change. It focuses on the reasons why this action may not occur and what we can do to change that.

It goes without saying that everyone, not just professionals, should strive for a growth mindset. You have the power to climb mountains, brave storms, and ride the waves!

Now, let’s kick fixed mindset out and start developing a growth mindset!

 

Why is growth mindset important?

Implementing a growth mindset is important because:

  • It supports the development of resilience
  • It supports self-regulation
  • It helps us to recognise the importance of challenge, struggle, mistakes and failure in learning and innovation
  • It provides a means by which to tackle mental health issues which stem from a lack of belief in one’s self and one’s abilities
  • It supports the cultivation of creativity
  • It helps us to find courage and motivation which creates progress
  • It helps us to achieve more
  • It helps us to be happier and more satisfied

 

10 ways to develop a growth mindset

Now that you have an idea of what a growth mindset is, let’s dig a little deeper. We have compiled 10 techniques to help you unlock the growth mindset part of your brain. Let’s get started!

 

Reflect

Take time to acknowledge, reflect, and embrace all your failures. Becoming aware of your areas of improvement is the stepping stone in cultivating a growth mindset. Sweeping your weaknesses under the rug will only inhibit your ability to reach success.

 

Find your purpose

In a growth mindset TED Talk led by Charlotte Barber, the young speaker explains how fostering a “growth mindset with a strong purpose and a toned resilience muscle, you’ll find that there are always other ways to achieve your goals.” We agree. Take time to reflect and find your purpose.

 

Take on challenges

Part of developing a growth mindset is shattering the negative perception of a challenge. Embrace challenges and view them as fruitful learning experiences that you would not get otherwise.

Elbert Hubbard once said, “The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make a mistake.”

 

Foster grit

Grit is the ability to persevere through obstacles in order to reach a meaningful end-goal. Hold on to grit. It gives that internal push to keep moving forward and fulfil your commitments.

 

Incorporate “yet

Integrating the word yet into your vocabulary signals that despite any struggles, you can overcome anything. It’s a matter of time and little effort. Practicing growth mindset activities like yet starts shifting that fixed mindset to a growth mindset.

 

Write down goals

Growth mindset people are aware that once one goal is down, they have others lined up to pursue. Create clear, realistic goals based on your passion and purpose. And be sure to give yourself enough time to conquer them thoroughly.

 

 

Alter your attitude

Fixed mindsets tend to harbour negative, pessimistic, and no-can-do attitudes. Kick those thoughts out now. The power of positive, optimistic thinking can instantly shift your mood that not only inspires you but others around you as well.

 

Ask for constructive feedback

A growth mindset proactively sources out feedback from peers, friends, and leadership. It’s a chance to find lessons, learn from mistakes, and place efforts into skills that will help in the long run.

 

Practice mindfulness/meditation

Mental and physical activities are another piece of the growth mindset formula. Mediation, walking, or even stretching allows you to focus on the present moment, mediate on your surroundings, and brings clarity to a cloudy mind.

 

 

Appreciate the journey

An important factor when building a growth mindset is seeing the value in your journey. When you are fixated on the outcome, you miss out on valuable learning moments that can improve your professional development overall. A growth mindset sees beauty in struggling.

 

Why is a Growth Mindset Important? – Final thoughts

Developing a growth mindset isn’t an easy task but is definitely worth the time and effort. By adapting one is not only a better way to learn but also a better way to life live.

In order to develop a growth mindset, you must change your perspective and cultivate self-acceptance, as approval from others and fear of embarrassment can prevent a growth mindset.

While learning something new, view challenges as opportunities to grow, and view errors or mistakes as lessons learned.

Try to redefine what failure means to you, and remember that patience is key.

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