Manipura Yoga Nidra - MP3
The Chakra System is an alternative anatomy aligned along the spine from the pelvic floor to the crown of the head. These spinning wheels are invisible energetic crossroads of the body, mind and spirit. They are a means of understanding our physical health, emotional well-being, mental clarity, and spiritual path. As we process our life’s experiences, the chakras may become
imbalanced. A chakra system out of balance may set the stage for physical, emotional, mental
or spiritual challenges. Yoga Nidra for chakra balance can restore this system of vital energies allowing harmony, contentment, wisdom and love to prevail.
Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of guided relaxation that has a profound healing effect on the body, mind and emotions. You will be brought into the hypnagogic state, a state of awareness between full wakefulness and sleeping where the witness consciousness resides. Through this practice deep relaxation is achieved allowing for the access and discovery of our innate wisdom.
Prepare yourself for a journey through wakeful sleep, conscious awareness and observation without judgment. The process will guide you through relaxation, sankalpa or intention setting, breath awareness, rotation of consciousness, manifestation of opposites, creative visualization, repetition of the sankalpa and returning to wakefulness. The only requirement is to remain comfortable and still while listening to the instructions.
The solar plexus chakra resides in the upper abdomen and transforms food into energy and challenges into opportunities through positive growth and clear self-esteem. Associated with the color yellow and the transformative fire element, the third chakra governs the upper digestive organs.
