Balancing Crown Charka

The crown charka is responsible for your connection to something beyond this human existence. It is where faith and trust reside. It is where we let go to the flow of life, “knowing” that we are exactly where we need to be. That everything is connected to a bigger picture we may not always see or understand but we know it exists. This is a powerful and very expansive charka. This charka can pull you out of this human experience and connect you to the universal energy. This is where we connect to our truth, God, divine energy and pure love. If you find yourself struggling with trusting the journey you are in, or you feel lost in this human experience this charka is a great one to work with.There are many ways to work with this charka, but the most obvious one is meditation. When working with this charka it is best to meditate in nature where you can connect to everything around you and become one with the earth’s energy. Guided meditation, a yoga nidra or a crystal meditation are a few great options.To stimulate this charka start by getting in to table top position and gently placing the top of your head on the mat and begin massaging the top of your head (make sure to be mindful to keep your neck safe) by rocking side to side and front and back you can say this mantra in your mind as you do this exercise. When you feel done with your massage you can come into a comfortable meditation position on your back in savasana and begin your guided meditation. Give yourself lots of time to transition when you come out of meditation.

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.
