The Sixth Chakra - Ajna

Chakras are subtle energy centers along the spinal column, which govern areas of human anatomy and embody themes of human development from primitive urges to faithful spritual growth. They are symbolic of Divine forces manifested in mantras, geometric patterns, and crystal energies. Through various yogic practices, one is able to explore inner awareness and cultivate connection to these centers of concentraton, thus tapping into personal growth toward the goal of yoga, Samahdi.  Though all chakras play a dynamic role in cultivating the use of meditation, the 6th or Third Eye Chakra deepens our focus on this part of our yoga practice.  Known as the Ajña Chakra, this mind center holds the energy of consciousness.

A balanced 6th chakra presents as one with common sense, quick to learn, good memory, spiritual grounding, follows intuition, and uses intelligence. Imbalance in the Ajna chakra presents as one who is not sympathetic, over-thinks, lacks common sense, has sleep/nightmare issues, is forgetful, does not follow intuition, and is judgmental.

Yoga asana to support delving in the 6th chakra include:  Dolphin pose, Peacock pose, Warrior I, Warrior III, Eagle pose, Crow, Crane, Child’s Pose, and sitting in Happy or Easy pose for meditation. 

Pranayama that corresponds to the 6th chakra is Nadi shodhana, or alternate nostril breathing, which creates balance between the right and left hemisphere of the brain, an enhanced sensitivity to the breath and uses the inner focus to the eyebrow center necessary for meditation.

Essential oils that support the third eye chakra are those that carry the highest energetic frequency and are considered sacred oils. They are often used for meditation as they are both grounding and uplifting. Included are: Sandalwood, Frankincense, Rose, Jasmine, Clary Sage, Cypress, Patchouli, Palmrosa, Peppermint, Myrrh, Vetiver and Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum).  Complimentary oils to blend with them include:  Lemon, Basil Rosemary, Marjoram, Juniper, and/or Neroli.

The Fifth Chakra - Vishuddha

The fifth chakra, the throat or Vishuddha chakra, is associated with the color blue and clear communication. The throat and ear (hearing) are part of this chakra. This energy center is the conduit connecting our intuitive or spiritual-focus chakras (the 6th and 7th chakras) with the chakras rooted in our physical body. When it is open and balanced, we are able to communicate freely, we feel centered and content, and we’re able to be honest with ourselves and others.

An excess imbalance of the throat chakra could look like arrogance, dishonesty, manipulation and/or self-righteousness. Deficient energy could look like fear of speaking your truth, feeling timid, being inconsistent or unreliable, having difficulty communicating your needs to others.

Ether, the yoga identity associated with the Throat Chakra, is also referred to as space, and is the essence of “emptiness.” Being still and silent through meditation is especially advantageous in helping us purify and strengthen our throat chakra, the connection between heart and mind. Try utilizing “Mouna Meditation”, wherein you choose a time of day when you can keep silent and abstain from intellectual focus (ie reading, TV, music, etc.) in order to increase external and internal silence.

Newcomers to meditation might notice a number of random concerns break through consciousness, such as a phone call that needs to be made…allow these thoughts to dissipate without becoming distracted or involved, and as this silent practice quiets your mind and soothes anxious feelings, you’ll be better equipped to allow these benefits into your daily living practices, such as thinking before you speak and saying only that which is necessary and true.

Yoga asanas to open the Throat chakra are also heart and shoulder openers. Examples are Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I), Purvottanasana(Long Bridge), Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Supported short bridge),  Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), Dhanurasana (Wheel), and Gomukhasana (Cow Face Pose).  Pranayamas that supports the Throat Chakra are Ujaai, and Bhramari.

One of the best essential oils to use to support clear communication and the throat chakra, is lavender. It is interesting that this essential oil which is so well known throughout the world, is one that can evoke a sentiment of love or extreme distaste in those who try it. It is an oil that encourages us to speak our truth, and therefore can feel uncomfortable to those with an imbalance in this chakra. If you find yourself having an aversion to lavender, ask yourself what emotions you have that need to be expressed, what your truth is, and how you are voicing it honestly to yourself and those around you.

 

The Fourth Chakra- Anahata

The Anahata chakra, the heart center, is the 4th of 7 chakras, and is considered the core of our being. It is the seat of our intuition and our emotional health. A balanced heart chakra affects our ability to give and receive love in a healthy way, to be content, joyful and compassionate.  We are also better able to cope with sadness, grief, depression, lonliness, and loss.

In the past weeks we have been studying the lower “earthly” chakras and now we journey to the balance point between the physical realm, our earthly desires, and the subtle realm, our spiritual journey. Once we connect with and awaken the energies of the first three chakras, we can use our intuitive persuits to benefit the understanding of Self. We can emerge from our stable base toward a greater acceptance of the larger sense of who we are in relation to others and to the universe. We become more accepting of others and of circumstances, and we see God in all. Recognizing our Divine nature brings us closer to understanding our life’s purpose and acknowledging the Divine in others helps us appreciate their gifts and the importance of community. Incorporating scriptural study is one of the pillars of the Yoga Sutras, and encouraged as part of daily practice toward each person’s unique spiritual journey. Through the heart chakra, love is our motivation in our relationships with others, nature, and with ourselves.

The heart chakra is physically associated with the heart, lungs, arms, hands, the sense of touch, the thymus gland, and the immune system. Many mudras support the heart center, to include Anjali (hands in prayer), Chin,  Gayan, and Prana Mudra.  Supportive asanas include chest and shoulder openers like Gomukhasana (Cow Face pose), Garudasana (Eagle), Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I), Dandasana (Staff), Purvottanasana (Long Bridge), Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), and Viloma I Pranayama.  The alignment of arms in these poses helps to create an open, stable connection between the heart and the head, neck, and shoulders and the lower rooting chakras.  The air element is related to this core chakra, thus the use of aromatherapy is quite effective. Essential oils that support the heart center are:  melissa, rosemary, marjoram, sandalwood, jasmine, rose, neroli, chamomile, lavender and geranium.      

Anahata in Sanskrit means “unstruck.” Many yogis believe that the constant rhythmic beat or vibration of the heart correlates to the heart beat of all creation. As we move through a more heart-centered time for humankind, many of us are turning our reflection inward, connecting with our heart-centered intuition for guidance, and experiencing a deeper understand of Self through this 4th chakra. The importance of communication coming from the heart chakra is a valuable tool to find unquestioning love for yourself, others, and the Divine.

The Third Chakra - Solar Plexus

This week’s focus is on the third chakra, also known as the Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura.  It is associated with the color yellow and the element fire. The digestive system is part of this chakra; it is known as our power center, and rightfully so as we consider how the digestive system has a massive impact on so many other body systems. The Solar Plexus is has to do with our individuality, self-will and self-esteem. This is where we embrace the uniqueness about ourselves, and it is connected to how much we allow ourselves to receive. 

 

As we consider the delicate balance pertaining to the Solar Plexus, “too much” could indicate excess ego, selfishness, lacking emotional warmth or difficulty relaxing. “Too little” can indicate frustration, feeling depressed, lacking confidence or needing to please others. Keeping our chakra energy clear and balanced is important to our healthy mind, spirit, body connection. 

 

The yoga identity associated with the Solar Plexus is the Ego Identity. When meditating to strengthen and balance this chakra, focus on one’s inner light and opportunities to radiate that light. What messages might the universe give us to embrace and expand on who we are, learn what our special gifts are and how we can use them to give back?

 

Essential oils can support our power center, they can enhance the love we feel for ourselves and choose in to who we are called to be. Some essential oils supportive to this chakra are Juniper Berry, Lemon, Neroli and Peppermint. As you breathe in the rich aroma of the essential oil(s) of your choice, do any yoga pose of your choice and think about how who you are resonates with the attributes that inspire you. What are those attributes? Love, peace, kindness, empathy, service … ask yourself: Why am I ____________ (love)? This question inspires your brain to search for evidence, and it’s a marvelous way to support your Solar Plexus chakra.

The Second Chakra - Svadhishthana

September 21 is known as the Fall Equinox and signifies the transition from summer to fall.  From an Ayurvedic perspecitive,It is also a transition into the season of Vata dosha, the energy that governs movement. It's an ideal time to tune into your authentic self and use the change in season as a means of self-study. On this day, there are equal hours of daylight and night.  As we turn our attention inward, we can reflect on the intentions of the spring, the seeds we sowed personally, and connect to the fruit of the labor as we nurtured those intentions throughout the summer.

 

The Fall Equinox aligns well for our chakra series. This week we focus on the second chakra, svadhishthana, the energy center represented by the water element, which expresses the unconscious depths of our desires. Here is where the life force begins to express itself and is responsible for our outward movement of vitality and potential reach into the world. We are either in touch with our needs and wants and can satisfy them in a healthy way, or if this chakra is out of balance, our energy is dissipated and we are attached to the pleasure and the gratification of our cravings.  To stay healthy here, we need to define boundaries and to strengthen our physical and emotional resilience.

Thus, in your daily practice, work against the dryness of the season by oiling and massaging the body (abyhanga) to remove toxins before showering and after bathing, lubricate the body again with warmed carrier oils like coconut, sunflower or sesame oil, infused with essential oils like lavender, chamomile, sandalwood, geranium, eucalyptus and rosemary.  See pp. 23 and 24 in Essential Yoga Practice book. Massage the belly in clockwise fashion to aid healthy digestion/elimination and massage the joints too!  In addition, incorporate healthy fats into your diet and eat seasonally.  In your yoga asana practice, create balance in both the mobility and the strengthening of the hips with poses like Baddha Konasana, Bound Angle pose, stabilizing standing poses like Trikonasana, Tree, and all Virabhadrasanas, Warrior poses.  Cultivate core strengthening with poses like Salabhasana,  Locust pose and Navasana, Boat pose.  End with a counterbalancing pose like Jathara Parivartanasana, Revolved Stomach pose and a restorative like Balasana, Child’s pose.

The literal meaning of svadishthana is “her own abode,” the abode of Kundalini energy, which implies that the goddess Kundalini, when awakened from her slumber in the muladhara, the root chakra, resides here, and our desire is one and the same as Divine desire. When we are healthy in our svadishthana chakra, we are no longer ruled by personal likes and dislikes, but rather, we are instruments in the hands of the Divine, connecting to our “purpose” at the deepest level of our being.

Root Chakra

There are signs of change all around us.  The coming of the fall equinox marks a pivotal time in the practice of Ayurveda as we are entering Vata season. Seasons of change are an especially good time to be grounded.

 

Let us turn our attention to the seven chakras, energy centers located along the spine. These energy centers are connected to nerve, artery and vein meridians, and represent different parts of our identity. (For more information about chakras, see pages 26-31 of Essential Yoga Practice). Each week for the coming weeks we will spotlight a different chakra.

 

Today we are starting with the Root, or Base, Chakra, also called Mulahadra. It is associated with the color red and the element earth. The legs, spine and adrenal glands are part of this chakra. The Root Chakra has to do with our feelings of security and survival instincts, it links us with our family history and heritage. In yoga, it is known as our physical identity.

 

Keeping our chakras balanced is essential for a healthy mind, body, spirit connection and the ability to operate as our highest and best self. Balance indicates that there is neither too much, nor too little. For the root chakra, “too much” could indicate greed/selfishness, excess ego, clouded judgment, and/or lack of empathy towards others. “Too little” can indicate feelings of shame, embarrassment, lack of confidence, feeling unlovable or not good enough.

 

The Root Chakra is an especially important chakra, because it is the foundational energy upon which the other chakras build; if this chakra is sluggish, blocked or out of balance, it is difficult for the other chakras to fully balance.

 

Both yoga and essential oils provide a unique approach to chakra balancing. Through certain movements, asanas and techniques, yoga allows us to reach up and out and progress in our abilities and understanding…only if we are firmly anchored into the ground. It allows us to feel the support and presence of the earth as a springboard for ourselves and all that we wish to create and contribute. The next time you practice yoga, allow yourself to focus on feeling rooted and grounded as a way to lay a foundation for holistic wellness in your life.

 

Essential oils can help us train our brain and emotions to think and feel the reality we want to live in, especially if our current reality might contain some residual “lesser desirables.” The chemical constituents in essential oils can support emotional centers of the brain, and we can also associate aroma with specific intentions and situations that can help us anchor and be active participant in our own lives.

Try this: Put a drop of essential oil in the palm of one of your hands, rub your hands together, cup your nose and inhale. Think of a specific intention you have to help you get grounded/centered. Then do any yoga pose of your choice, paying specific attention to the support the earth gives you so that you can reach up or out. Allow yourself to experience and express deep appreciation to your higher power for the gift of the earth as you get more rooted and grounded.

Cultivating a Meditation Practice

In this technology driven world, we often feel over-stimulated and among many mind-body tools which can provide us some grounding and clarity is meditation.  Meditation practices are not a one size fits all however; there are so many different styles to choose from, and perhaps to combine.  The style of meditation you choose may depend on your personality, habits, what time of day you can incorporate a practice, and intention.  Be open to trial and error, allowing yourself several opportunities to experience any of these or other meditative techniques, so that you become familiar with the outcome for you, and can rely on that to help dictate when/if to use that particular style practice in the future. Here at Essential Yoga Practice we say that “everyone has a place in yoga” and therefore everyone can find a meditation style that aligns with their unique personality.  In the world of yoga therapy we hear, “if you can breathe, you can do yoga” and thus meditate!

  

Many people already meditate unknowingly in their day, if we consider that every meditation practice is based on four main steps: focus, let go, think, repeat.  Most people shy away from trying meditation because they think the idea is to empty the mind and that seems too far out of reach. That is a misconception.  The ideal is to have a “one-pointed” focus, so as to give the mind a break from the jumping around, and that practice is worth cultivating. We can learn to train the mind to slow down this energy draining habit and then to be able to be more focused throughout the day.  Anything that we practice becomes something we can do well. So let’s get started with 5 different meditation techniques, though there are many more. 

1.  Focus on the breath.  This is the most traditional way yogis meditate and there are many variations under this big umbrella of breath-centered meditation.  You can make it so simple as to deepen both the inhalation and the exhalation, which has a calming effect on the central nervous system, improves lung capacity, tones the diaphragm and the accessory muscles of breathing, and can be done in any position. 

2.  Mantra – repeating a sound, especially “healing sounds” or one that has meaning is very soothing and intentional. In Sanskrit there are “bij” mantras, sounds/syllables that are considered healing, and have exponential healing when combined in certain ways. “OM” is considered the universal mantra, on a macro level it is the residual sound of the big bang, on a micro level it is the sound of electrons spinning; it is considered by many to be the sound of the universe, thus a tie that binds us. 

3. Guided Imagery – some people cannot seem to pare down their focus so guided imagery is the step in the direction of learning to meditate on one point.  Whether you have a teacher providing the calming vocalized story or a CD or DVD, this method still manages to block out the usual worry or racing behavior of the mind and can be very quieting for both body and mind.

4. Loving Kindness Meditation – is a wonderful way of cultivating self love and love for others. The idea here is to focus on love and acceptance, the positive energy that comes from good intentions, care and compassion, for self and others.  Praying falls into this category too and is very soothing and freeing for the soul.

5. Walking Meditation – many people find it hard to lie still, let alone to sit still, and if that is the greatest hurdle then using a walking meditation practice is a wonderful way to develop focusing skills.  It is useful to combine mantra here, repeating the chosen sound with each step, and to walk along a defined path to allow the mind to not have the decision work of choosing direction (consider a labyrinth or park path).  And, there extra advantages: being out in nature and enjoying fresh air!

 

Note that meditation, or Dhyana, is the 7th limb of yoga, considered the “game changer,” of yoga practice. Asana, or practice of postures, is the 3rd limb, and considered to have the purpose of strengthening the body, especially the spine, to be able to sit for long periods in meditation.  When meditation is new, and for many yogis, the preference is to have a reclined meditation practice, where the back body is supported.  It is a different experience to be able to sit upright with good posture for an extended stretch of time, in meditation – it requires more strength and more diligence to stay the course. Start with what keeps you comfortable, that you are able to apply Dhyana,  the 6th limb or concentration, stay the course of your intended practice, and reap the fruit of the labor:  Delving deep to the inner self, and thus toward the 8th limb, Enlightenment, Samahdi!  Want to take meditation to another level?  Add aromatherapy!  Check out last week’s blog.  Get your copy of Essential Yoga Practice:  Your Guide to the New Yoga Experience with Essential Oils book and DVD.  Opt in to our website to hear our latest news.  And, join us on social media: like, comment and share to be entered into the monthly giveaways!

Using Essential Oils On and Off the Mat!

There are five different groups of essential oils and we will discuss how to use them on and off the mat!

 Participate, share and win your copy of the DVD, Essential Yoga Practice!

 

Once it becomes a habit, there's nothing quite as relaxing as aromatherapy infused into your yoga practice, whether at the beginning, middle or end of your class/practice.  After many years of studying and teaching yoga and using aromatherapy, we have found that aromatherapy supports the well-being of the mind, body, and spirit,… just like yoga! Aromatherapy is effective whether one diffuses essential oils or through direct application onto the skin.  Remember that “less is more” when you have a pure essential oil, it is rather potent so it is always best to blend essential oils with a carrier when applying onto skin.  For more information, refer to your copy of Essential Yoga Practice:  Your Guide to the New Yoga Experience With Essential Oils.

Regardless of application, essential oils aid the efficiency of all body systems to function optimally, promote a positive emotional state, and provide mental clarity. Here are some suggestions of essential oilsenhance your yoga practice and positively affect your overall health and wellness:

 

1. Ginger, sandalwood, vetiver, frankincense, myrrh, cedarwood, white fir are all very grounding. These aromas will support balance, stability, and intention in asana practice and deepen your meditation practice.

2. Peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary, melaluca, petitgrain, cardamom, and arborvitae will clear airborne pathogens, open the airways, and support mastering the art of deep, steady breathing, pranayama practice and the clarity that comes from focusing on the breath.

3.  Lavender, spikenard, chamomile, marjarom and geranium are calming scents used to promote relaxation and quieting the mind, especially during restorative poses and savasana at the end of yoga asana.

4. Wild orange, lemon, bergamot, grapefruit and lime all boost positive emotions and allow a lighter spirit and outlook, another way to maximize on how your yoga practice can boost your energy and sense of happiness.

5.  Neroli, rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, and geranium help lift the heaviness from the heart, connect us to each other and encourage spiritual growth, all ways to help us transcend stuck patterns and improve outlook.

 

Now that you are beginning to understand which aromatherapy choices your yoga teacher is making, now that you understand the effects of certain aromas, begin to use essential oils as you build your own yoga practice as well as in other parts of your day.
