Conflicted over an upcoming major decision? Overwhelmed by how the consequences of your choices may be perceived by others? Try practicing yoga poses to help you tap into your intuition!
Energy flows where the mind goes. During challenging times, the key is to take a step back in order to move two steps forward! Take this day to relax and fit in some exercise to get your energy flowing.
In today’s fast-paced world, each day can be overbearing with all the physical, mental, emotional, and energetic stressors. The blocks can make it difficult for use to hear our inner voice, our intuition. In turn, this prevents us from a life of more peace and balance.
When it comes to applying a holistic approach to get to the root of stress, anxiety and imbalances, breathing exercises such as yoga, can help to resolve issues at the energetic level of the intuitive, higher self.
Years ago, I went through a series of personal and professional life crises. Though most would describe me as an upbeat and down-to-earth gal, deep down, I was miserable.
I tried everything but kept feeling stuck, overwhelmed, and hopeless. In the midst of anxiety and bouts of depression, I kept changing jobs, moving locations…yet nothing seemed to work.
Here’s what happened at one of my lowest points…
Broke up with a guy that I was set on marrying…couldn’t stand my office job and cried myself to sleep on Friday nights because I dreaded Mondays…had a falling out with my best friend…and a meltdown in front of a manager…unfortunately, the list goes on.
When it rains, it pours right?! When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, right? That is just what I did.
Life was chaotic but that didn’t mean I had to stay at rock bottom. While everything was falling apart, I was able to manifest milestone breakthroughs like crazy.
I worked with various energy healers and yoga mentors to clear blocks holding me back from tapping into my intuition. The clarity and insight I gained felt instantaneous.
Most times we manifest breakthroughs by tackling our challenges on a physical, emotional, and mental level. Rarely do we look at how to take on life challenges on the energetic level.
Don’t get me wrong, I stand by meditations, visualizations, journaling, and working out as effective techniques that can feed the soul. Yoga complements all these great practices by taking it a step further!
Perhaps you don’t feel like going outside to workout or to the gym, Then it’s a good day to recharge your batteries right at home with these top 3 yoga poses to tap into your intuition:
1. Child’s pose: When in child’s pose, roll your forehead on your mat from side to side, as if you are shaking your head to say “no.” This will help to open up the third eye chakra, your seat of intuition and wisdom.
Bring your awareness to your thoughts. Visualize the thoughts that aren’t serving you to fall right into the Earth. As the saying goes, energy flows where the mind goes!
2. Butterfly pose:
Bring the soles of your feet together. Grounding yourself to the Earth and as you inhale, lengthen your spine slightly through the crown of your head. Hold 1 minute or more while focusing on your breath.
Grounding to Earth energy and connecting with Source energy, helps to clear energetic blocks that may be in the way of gaining clarity.
3. Down dog:
Allow your neck to hang heavy in this pose to send the energy all the way through the crown chakra.
As each vertebrae loosens up, this also helps energy flow through each of the chakras and thereby, helping to balance your energetic system to help you tap into your intuition.
