Our Heart Chakra represents love, forgiveness, compassion and kindness. This energy centre affects physical heart, lungs, circulatory system and blood. A strong heart chakra provides loving nourishment not only to the surrounding people, family and community, but also to the individual itself by circulating nutrients and oxygen in the blood. A weak energetic and physical heart can be a result of past wounds, traumas, false beliefs, and disconnection from the inner self among other things. To bring the heart to healing and balance, Kundalini Yoga offers amazing tools that work effectively and quickly. One such technique is called an Ego Eradicator. It utilizes a powerful prana-enriching breath, a posture that activates heart meridians on the inside of the arms and an eye gaze that connects us with the highest truth flowing thought the crown chakra.
Practicing this technique has numerous benefits. It is especially powerful when done in a group setting with the support of the collective intention and in the space held by a teacher who represents a lineage of enlightened yogis. You can explore this posture by yourself or join an intentional class at Joy and Vitality Centre, immersed in the healing air of Himalayan salt and appropriately selected colour therapy.
Sit in cross-legged in an Easy Pose. Raise the arms up to a 60 degree angle, curl the fingertips onto the pads of the palms at the base of the fingers. Thumbs are plugged into the sky. With the eyes closed, concentrate above the head and begin Breath of Fire for 1 – 3 minutes. To end, inhale deeply and bring the arms overhead with the thumbtips touching. Exhale and relax the arms down.
