Yoga Nidra – Chakra Healing

January 30, 2012

In your chosen quiet space, place yourself in your most comfortable Savasana / Corpse pose. Take a few moments to assess the body, releasing any physical discomfort through the outbreath, making any and all necessary adjustments before lying completely still and allowing the body to surrender to Savasana.

Withdraw your conscious awareness to your breathing, bearing witness to the miracle that is your life force and key to your existence – The Breath. Allow the modifications – vrittis – of the mind to settle with the natural rhythm of the breath easing the mind into a sense of calm and one pointedness.
Move your awareness to the Muladhara /  Root Chakra and perceive a sense of being firmly grounded in body and thought. Allow this feeling of security to bring you peace of mind and that all is well in your world. Take a few breaths absorbing this intention.

Shift your consciousness to the Svadisthana / Sacral Chakra and have an awareness of mutual understanding, respect and balance with yourself and those you relate to on a regular basis in your every day coming and going. Feel that your relations are based on truth and clear communication allowing you to be the best you can be to those you love and serve. Stay with this observation for a few breaths.

Mindfully take your focus to the Manipura / Naval Chakra and begin to sense your self confidence blossom with assertiveness. Absorb into your being the power of self worth and that you can achieve all you set your mind to because you believe in your self worth, knowing that the Divine did not give us a sense of timidity or fear but gifted us with courage, conviction and love – and you ARE loved.

Move your awareness to the Anahata / heart Centre and immediately feel the healing energy and blissful nature of Divine love, love for others and love for yourself. Note how this energy radiates through your body and mind making you feel at peace with yourself and the Universe. Savour this sensation for a few moments.

Gently allow your mind to centre on the Vishuddha / Throat Chakra. Be aware of how the neck and throat soften with each breath and visualize clarity and confidence in your communication both in intention and verbal communication. Positively embrace this sense of truthfulness that reverberates with the sound of your voice.

Take your observation to the Ajna / Eyebrow Centre. Notice a sense of calm and comprehension that soothes over your thoughts, feeling creativity and growth in intellect and an abundance of wisdom filling your mind. Allow the grace of this to comfort you.

Softly move your attention to the Sahasrara / Crown Chakra acknowledging with love and respect the connection to the Divine, Be fully present with this realization for a few moments.

After some time, gently and slowly shift your awareness, pausing for three breaths at each energy centre, from the Sahasrara Chakra, to Ajna, to Vishuddha, to Anahata, to Manipura, to Svadisthana and then to the Muladhara Chakra. As you calmly bring yourself out of Savasana, acknowledge the Blessings of body and mind and offer heartfelt thanks for your well-being.

Yoga Nidra is now complete.

With love and light,

Juanita.
