Wellness Wednesday: Week 6

Posted on Jun 26, 2019 in Featured, Massage, Promotions, Services, Spa Services, Uncategorized

Welcome to our first Wellness Wednesday series focusing on the 7 chakras. Each week will be focused on a specific chakra, related wellness rituals and chakra balancing aromas.

 

Q: What are chakras?

“The chakra system is the symbolic presentation of energies which exist in the body influenced by the subconscious mind. Yoga and meditation help you awaken those energies for the most balanced state of the body, mind and soul.”

-The Drs. Upadhyay, Maharshi Bhardwaj Clinic & Research Centre, India Consultants to Aveda since 1976

Based on Ayruveda, a 5,000 year-old healing tradition from India, chakras can be described as 7 spinning wheels of energy that affect your health, well-being and beauty. These 7 chakras are aligned along the spine, starting at the base of the spine and continuing to the crown of the head. Because everything is in constant motion, it is imperative that these 7 chakras remain open, stay in alignment, and maintain a fluid motion. If one of these chakras are blocked, energy cannot flow.

 

 

 

 

Chakra 6: Intuition
ANJA

Chakra 6 is the center of intuition, imagination and perception.

When the intuition chakra is balanced, one feels strong intuition, a connection to oneself and mentally fit.

When the intuition chakra is imbalanced, one has mental blocks, over-thinks things and lacks depth.

 

Location of Third Eye Chakra: It is located on the forehead between the brows.

Aroma: Certified organic petitgrain, orange and geranium

Element: All elements

Color: Dark blue

 

Nutrition

Most blue and purple fruits and vegetables are effective in stimulating and vitalizing the throat, third eye and crown centers.

Incorporate more of these blue and purple colored fruits and vegetables into your daily nourishment. Some of these foods are: blueberries, purple grapes, eggplant, plums, blackberries, prunes, purple cabbage, figs, raisins and purple onions.

 

Meditation

This is the sixth, or third eye center chakra meditation, To enhance your experience spray the insightful blend of Aveda Chakra™ 6 balancing body mist with geranium and petitgrain.

As you focus on deep diaphragmatic breaths, bring your awareness into the 6th or 3rd eye chakra located in between the eyebrows. This is the center of imagination, intuition, and perception. Visualize a spinning wheel of dark blue energy in between your eyebrows and silently repeat the word “insight”. Notice the sensations that arise at your 6th chakra.

As you focus on this center, visualize a spinning wheel of light blue energy. Repeat the word “expression” to yourself imagining that you are able to communicate effectively.

 

Affirmation
