This is an exercise Donna Eden shares in her book Energy Medicine Balancing Your body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy, and Vitality. She tells us that having gratitude lifts our energy and is good for our health. We can choose to select one or all the chakras for channeling our gratitude and thanksgiving when practicing this exercise. Today we will concentrate on the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Start by holding your hands over your third chakra (Solar Plexus).
Bring your elbows to the sides of your body, hug and cradle the chakra like a baby.
Bring your mind’s eye into the Solar Plexus and breathe deeply.
Now is the time to send thanksgiving and gratitude to the chakra.
The Solar Plexus is often overactive, you can calm it with a ‘shhh’ like you would an infant.
Your body will respond. Be open to the experience.
Remember you can cradle and express gratitude toward any chakra!
