AJNA: CHAKRA CLEANSE DAY 16-18

The third eye chakra, or ajna, corresponds to the element light, the colors purple or indigo and the sense of intuition. You should strive to eat foods like purple grapes, blackberries, blueberries, eggplant, prunes, raisins, chocolate and purple kale. Lavender tea is a good beverage for this chakra. Ajna embodies energies such as wisdom, psychic ability, dreams and comprehension.

To have a balanced third eye is to actively express creativity and joy, be adaptable, sensual and fertile in all stretches of the imagination. If your third eye is closed, you will experience isolation, feelings of guilt, joint problems, dehydration and infertility.

To help open your third eye, make sure to keep your brain healthy by eating the right foods and getting enough vitamin D. Sunbathing will help to absorb vitamin D as well. Reading is also a good activity as it relieves stress and exercises your thought centers. Writing down dreams and feelings is helpful, too.

Socially, you should let go of feeling in competition with everyone. Stop comparing yourself to others. Be happy for others’ happiness and achievements. Stop overthinking! This is a huge problem for me. I battle with it every day. Just breathe, relax, and enjoy nature. Learn to let go of the feelings and impulses that make you small.


DAY 16

I started off my day with my yoga exercises. I did tree pose, warrior pose, pigeon pose, and boat pose, camel pose, and I added child’s pose.

I meditated on affirmations for this phase of the cleanse. If I haven’t been clear, you don’t need to use my affirmations. Instead, you can meditate and come up with whatever is more focused directly to your energy.

I did not sleep with my amethyst for this phase, though you could if you wanted to. I decided to actively meditate all three days, placing the amethyst upon my third eye center.

DAY 17

Yoga poses, as usual. Meditation. I grilled eggplant for lunch.

The ajna focuses on “I See” energy. Write in your journal all of the things you see. Not with your physical eyes, but with your ajna. Look deep inside for this. Let it show you what you need to see.

Make sure to come up with a good prayer or memorize this one before you do your ending ritual the last day.

AJNA MEDITATION

INCENSE: Third Eye Chakra stick by Triloka

MUSIC:

MUDRA: mudraaaa

MANTRA: “ohm.” Chant about 10 times, slowly and spaced out. As you chant the mantra, imagine a bright red light burning at your feet, solidifying your foundation. As it runs up your legs, it blends into orange that gets brighter and brighter until focusing into a bright yellow sun that warms up your body and grows a green landscape at your heart. As you move up to focus on your throat, you look up and there is a vast blue sky of endless possibility. You float up higher and higher until you’ve left the real world behind. It is just you and purple infinite space. The stars surround you and you see the truth.

Recite prayer 5 times.

Focus on the purple energy. Visualize swimming through empty pure purple atmosphere.


You’re almost done with this 21-day cleanse! Good job 🙂 One more phase left…

Vishuddha: Chakra Cleanse Day 13-15

The throat chakra, or vishuddha, corresponds to the element of sound, the color blue and the sense of hearing. You will want to eat blue foods such as blackberries and blueberries. Other beneficial foods include apples, lemons, limes, pears and peaches. You should also stay well-hydrated during this phase, drinking between 8 and 12 glasses each day. Chamomile is a good beverage for this chakra. Most of the activities that help to heal this chakra are communicative, such as singing and chanting. Vishuddha embodies energies such as expression, truth and integrity.

To have a balanced throat chakra is to convey truth, be loyal and to express yourself. If you have an imbalance, you might have anxiety issues and often find yourself in miscommunications.

The first step in healing this chakra is to start telling the truth. Instead of keeping everything inside and away from those closest to you, let them know the truth. Try to have honest relationships. Another helpful activity is to have a massage. Also, wear any blue jewelry you have to enhance your throat chakra.


DAY 13

I started my morning with a glass of water infused with lemon. I do this often anyway, as it cleanses the liver, priming it for the work it has to do for us the rest of the day. Then, with my yoga exercises, I did tree pose, warrior pose, pigeon pose, and boat pose and camel pose. Hip-opening positions like warrior pose and doing squats help this chakra. Cardio is also helpful.

Then, I did my affirmations:

I slept with my sodalite and howlite under my pillow so I could continue my work in my sleep.

DAY 11

Lemon water and yoga.

The vishuddha focuses on “I Speak” energy. Write in your journal all of the things you speak about from your heart. Then, write a list of the deepest sentiments you wish you could speak. Keep in mind, there is no reason you can’t speak about these things. You are the only one blocking yourself from being as honest and open as possible.

Make sure to come up with a good prayer or memorize this one before you do your ending ritual the last day.

After coming up with my prayer, I decided to spend some time listening to music and singing along. This is a very active way to get your throat chakra up and running. Give yourself to the music and let your vocal chords roam free!

DAY 12

Lemon water and yoga. I chanted some affirmations to activate my energy.

MANTRA: “ham.” Chant about 10 times, slowly and spaced out. As you chant the mantra, imagine a bright red light burning at your feet, solidifying your foundation.

As you move up to focus on your throat, you look up and there is a vast blue sky of endless possibility.

Recite prayer 5 times.

Focus on the blue energy. Visualize what is possible in the infinite blue. Feel yourself floating toward the sky until you become one with it.
