Balancing Third eye charka

The third eye charka is responsible for guiding you in achieving your true vision. It’s focus is to bring you back to trusting your higher self, your intuition, and your inner guide. This is a deep connection to your true vision of the life you desire.This “knowing” or intuition is so important for helping guide you along your path to your true potential. If you feel like you are struggling seeing your truth, or trusting that inner guide then this charka could use some extra love and attention. Come into a wide‐legged child’s pose. Toes connected, knees wide, sit bones to the heels. Bringing your chest to the mat, allow the space between your eyebrows (third eye) to rest on stacked fists or a block. Putting gentle pressure on that area you can say this mantra in your mind, focusing on bringing the energy from the words into that space between your eyes. Relax here for as long as you need.

Balancing the Root Charka

The root chakra is about feeling secure and safe, having all our essential needs met. It’s about feeling protected, nourished, supported and grounded in your authentic truth. This chakra becomes out of balance when we feel a sense of “lack.” Worrying about money, or how we are going to support ourselves or our family can be leave us feeling far from grounded. If you are struggling with these feelings, this mantra is perfect for you. Find a comfortable seated position and imagine you have roots growing deep into the earth, repeating this mantra throughout your meditation practice. You can use prayer beads to guide you through this practice, or use ujjayi breath to help anchor you to the earth. Imagine on every inhale you are growing your branches upward and on every exhale your roots are growing deeper into the earth grounding you in every way you need.
