the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, and interpretations. Originality, progressiveness, or imagination, manifesting in artistic expression.

Do you yearn to express yourself artistically and don’t feel you have the skill? Or do you have a talent that is blocked and unable to express?

For your creative spirit to flow, the Chakras need to be in balance. Although the Chakras run up and down your spine from the Root Chakra at your tailbone to the Crown Chakra hovering just above your head, it is not necessary to start at the bottom and work to the top. Instead attention and care given to each of the Chakras on a regular basis, provides insight into which Chakra may need extra attention at any given time.

In this blog post, we will explore the Third Eye and Crown Chakras on our journey to balance these subtle energy centers.

Third Eye Chakra

The Third Eye Chakra rests just above your eyebrow. This is your space of wisdom and intuition. When this energy is balanced, you experience calm and can make thoughtful decisions free of anxiety. Trust in yourself and your own internal wisdom leads to innovative expression.

Yoga:

  • Downward dog
  • Forward bend
  • Alternate nostril breathing

Food:

The Third Eye Chakra is nourished by purple foods including chocolate, grapes, blueberries, and lavender.

Crown Chakra

The Crown Chakra resides just above the crown of the head. This energy body connects your physical being with the metaphysical universe. When in balance, you experience bliss, the ability to reside in the present moment, and a quieting of the inner dialogue or chatter. Allowing yourself to be open to the communication of the world around you, affects your creativity in a positive way.

  • Practice Prana Yama, breath work, deep breathing is balancing.
  • Headstand
  • Half-lotus
  • Svasana
