Activating Body Harmony – Healing through Chakras Series of 7 Blogs
Welcome to part 6 of the 7 part series on Activating Body Harmony, healing through chakras. In this 7 part series we have been exploring how to create harmony between the chakras, so we experience improved levels of health, awareness and consciousness. We achieve this by using yoga postures, and some simple, yet highly effective body movements with an intention to release the blockages from our chakras and infusing them with the colour of light associated with that particular energy centre. The information contained in each energy centre dictates our levels of health, wealth and prosperity.
Each energy centre holds vital information for us to understand and integrate. By releasing challenges in each centre we can live a more awakened life.
Third Eye Chakra
Location – On the forehead, between the eyebrows
Colour – Bluish purple / Indigo
This energy centre is the seat of intuition and foresight. It opens up our intuitive sensibility and perception towards the inner and outer world. It allows us to cut through illusion and access deeper truths – to see beyond the mind and words. When you operate from this chakra, you see everything as a witness or an observer – moment by moment.
Feeling stuck, unable to see a vision for yourself, or the larger picture of life, lack of clarity, feeling less than others,feelings of unworthiness and being stuck in judgement.
- Hero pose
- Shoulder stand
Repeat each pose thrice, staying with it for 20 seconds at least, focusing your attention on the chakra at all times. Keep your breathing normal and relaxed. Imagine the chakra getting activated, opening up and expanding as you do these yoga postures. Infuse this chakra with the colour indigo. Feel the indigo colour filling your entire body.
Observe silence and visualize
Foster silence of the mind, whether it’s through meditation, just sitting calmly in nature, or visualisation. To be able to listen to the messages and information that comes through your third eye, you should be ready to perceive the whisper of its wisdom.
Directional eye exercises
Stand or sit upright. Look straight ahead. Without moving your head, look to the left. Focus on what you see. Then look right. Move your eyes side to side five times. Repeat the same by looking up and down.
The principle of awakening related to this chakra – No Judgement
The meaning you ascribe to whatever it is you are doing could be the reason for several situations in your life – whether it is a weight issue, a money challenge or a relationship that feels stuck. Sometimes it is our perception about something that lands us in a certain situation or a place of understanding. This principle of Awakening suggests that the judgement we have placed around our problems may be the real problem. Our perception over any area of your life is causing illness or wellness in your life. Read the chapter and put to use the daily practices mentioned in it to clear the stuckness of energy in that chakra and to upgrade its consciousness.
