Today’s Miracle Moment is about the seventh chakra or energy center, which is about our connection to the oneness of life.
We all crave connection, and today’s Miracle Moment is about the most powerful connection of all– to the oneness of life. Opening the seventh chakra can help you tap into this blissful connection. Our seventh chakra, located at the top of the head, is referred to as the crown chakra, and it’s the energy center for connecting to our divinity, to spirit and to oneness. It creates a feeling of unity in life, a feeling of connection with all of life. From our experience, when this seventh Chakra opens, life feels more magical–it’s what we call “living in the Miracle Zone.”
Today we’ll share a practice to help open the crown chakra and your connection to divinity. Truly, it’s who you are. You’re a divine being manifest here on this planet in human form. So, you’re not a human being–you’re just being human. You’re actually made of these divine energies that you can tap into and access.
To tap into the divine energy, we share this practice to open the crown chakra. . .
- Imagine a funnel
Imagine that you have a giant funnel sticking out of the top of your head that goes out to the planets above you, to the sun and the moon and the whole Milky Way. This funnel goes to the constellations and other galaxies far beyond; it goes into stardust and makes its way out to the unmanifest world. When you imagine and create an energetic funnel, it becomes a channel for pure connection.
- Breathe from and into the Crown Chakra
Now, you can keep that connection alive by specific breathing practice. Pick a spot about two inches beneath the surface of your skull and then pick another spot two inches above your head. Inhale from the spot two inches above your head and exhale from the spot two inches beneath the surface of your skull — about the center of your brain. Then inhale from the center of the brain and exhale right back out to two inches above your head. Pretend that you’re a whale blowing out the blow hole. Exhale like a whale would, with power, right up through the crown of your head. Next inhale as if you’re just breathing right in through the soft spot when you were a baby, right into the center of your brain. Then exhale right back out.
- Expand and connect
As you start to practice this center of the brain breathing, expand it further. Breathe further above the head. Start to incorporate the funnel you created to breathe in the planets, the constellations, and the cosmos. Breath it all right back down into the body. That’s how we start to open this gateway and allow these energies to integrate so instead of feeling like a separate self, we feel connected.
Do this practice regularly and you’ll probably start to feel like a different person (or more of who you really are). You can also go back and review the other Miracle Moments practices we’ve shared and do those as well. This energy work connects you to the truth of who you are.
In the work that I (Marci) did interviewing people about happiness, the most consistent quality I found amongst unconditionally happy people is a feeling of connection to the greater energy of the universe. This seventh Chakra practice is a brilliant way to help us feel more connected to the divinity of who we truly are. So, start this practice right away and then share with us what’s opening for you either on our Facebook page and in the comments section below.
Many people comment about feeling a lightness or tingling in the head while doing this practice. Did you have a similar experience? Or what sensations or openings did you feel?
We’ll end today with a beautiful quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal ONE.”
Let us open to the truth of our eternal oneness, and as we do, may we live more fully in the Miracle Zone!
