A Tiny Meditation for Chakra 3
Close your eyes and breathe deeply in and out. Imagine a bright yellow sun shining in your abdomen. And see yourself in a beautiful field of sunflowers. Feel its warmth and strength. Repeat the affirmation: “My daily actions strengthen my inner power.”
The third chakra is the center of self-esteem, self-assurance, and emotions. This is where fear and anger are often held. Here are some tips to help balance this chakra:
☀️ Feel the fear but don’t let it stop you. Face challenges head-on and grow through them.
☀️ Release anger by shouting or hitting a pillow. It can be a liberating way to express this emotion.
☀️ Write forgiveness letters. Jot down what you feel wronged you. Then, decide consciously to let go of past pain and forgive those who have wronged you. Holding onto anger, pain, or resentment serves no one.
☀️ Laugh! A lot! Especially when you’re angry. Laughing brings joy and strength.
☀️ Breathe deeply. A few deep breaths can reduce stress and reconnect you to your inner power and love.
