TASTE THE LOVE
Muladhara Chakra, the root chakra. I'm usually pretty grounded but when I realize that I have finished a whole bag of candies I know it’s time to call Tobba! That is my power of will taking over, which is definitely a talent I have deep in my roots. We need to nourish our roots with self-care and love, not only for our loved ones but for ourselves. Seeking help when necessary is a part of it.
Svadhisthana Chakra. Chakra Center of passion and creation. Center for emotions, intimacy and connectivity. When this power station is in balance, I gain the power of letting go and get more connected to my feelings. Be flexible and trust the progress and flow of life. Water is Svadhisthana's element and like water, I am flowing freely through life, finding the way to creativity and passion and a trusty and good relationship with my feelings.
Manipura Chakra, the city of jewel. To maintain strength and stability in arm balances and inversions, this chakra must be well connected. This strength and stability is therefore very important when connected to the action of movement while moving from one shape to the next. In my mind, this is one of the most important aspects of my hand-balancing practice.
Anahata Chakra, this chakra center is located in the center of the chest, where my beautiful drum beats, THE HEART. It is so beautiful to connect to this chakra station and important as well. We are way too often stuck in our heads where thoughts flow in and out without any control. I love it when I can bring my attention, notion and feelings down to my heart. It calms me and rejoices, and makes me love myself. I sometimes use an Indian drum in yoga, to get people to breathe deeply and regularly. Something amazing happens when this chakra station opens and grabs other people and the universe.
Vishuddha Chakra, the voice and clear communication. For me, pure and clear expression is one of the most important things I get as a singer and musician. Whether I am using the voice to share emotions or create music, I am always looking for clarity and honesty in all I do.
Ajna Chakra, the third eye. When I want to calm my mind and strengthen the forehead chakra I like to do exercises where the forehead rests on the floor, for example in the child, forward bending etc. And of course meditate. In the third eye I feel the fragrance of the true self, endless wilderness and identify myself as a part of a larger unity.
Sahasrara Chakra, the crown. Happiness is available for all of us. As love is, happiness or bliss is energy and a part of it is brain chemistry produced in the crown of your head. Happy molecules can be switched on by several things as certain food, supplements, exercise, meditation, cold baths, happy people, yoga of course and affirmation that serves you. You can easily switch them off too, with all the opposite. The beauty of happiness is also, that it´s about choice. Like most other things in life. Make a wise one.
