You are supposed to really feel good. You are supposed to dwell because the woke up, embodied, entire model of you! Balancing the chakra system actually helps us come alive once more, in all areas and elements of our lives, which is why I devised Root to Rise.
The seven chakras within the physique are symbolized by the petals of a lotus flower. The whole opening of all of the petals achieves an awakening and steadiness of physique, thoughts, and spirit. The sahasrara chakra (the seventh and last chakra) is the chakra that prompts this divine common vitality.
The Sanskrit phrase, Sahasrara, means ‘thousand’ or ‘infinite’. The sahasrara chakra is situated on the high of the top and is also referred to as the crown chakra. It’s the place the place our particular person consciousness merges with the common consciousness.
It creates a robust reference to the supreme self, and is believed to affect mind features equivalent to reminiscence, intelligence, and sharp focus.
A Balanced Crown Chakra (Sahasrasa)
It’s stated that when the seventh chakra prompts, it brings a extra constructive outlook on life. When in steadiness, it brings non secular understanding, a way of acutely aware connection and deep peace. When this chakra is unbalanced, nonetheless, we could expertise disillusionment, disconnection, and restlessness.
I used to be teaching a woman final 12 months who felt like she had misplaced connection along with her highest self, or with a bigger presence. She didn’t consider in God, or at the very least our conventional understanding of Him. However she felt like she had misplaced reference to the common intelligence, out of contact with grace and with synchronicity. She defined it was like dropping the style for all times: she felt listless, disconnected, distracted, and alone. Even when she was round individuals, together with family members, she felt really alone.
We labored collectively on meditations that work on the seventh chakra, with the third eye centered on the high of the top. She began a observe of aura sweeps, 54 occasions a day, and that helped her rather a lot. She dedicated to doing the meditation and aura sweeps each morning for 40 days, and with that devoted observe, she really turned a modified particular person. It was so stunning to see her come alive once more: to witness her get her spark again, and see the sunshine in her eyes as soon as once more.
She stated it felt like she had had a heavy cloak over her head and eyes, and it had been lifted. She began to divulge heart’s contents to synchronicity once more, and will really feel grace round her, particularly when she hiked in nature, or when she took time to look at kids and infants. She felt hope for the longer term as soon as once more.
She was proof that by consciousness, effort and observe, we are able to really come alive once more—even when life had felt so dim, darkish and hopeless, beforehand.
