When it comes to taming chaos, getting yourself grounded and shutting off the energy flowing in from the outside can do wonders. The crown chakra not only links us to the Universe, Spirit and higher realms, but it blends energy from the physical realm of everyday life well. When it becomes overactive, a person can feel flighty, anxious and overwhelmed. But there is a quick way to rest it and it’s called the Crown Chakra Reset.
Step 1: Place your hand (dominant hand) over the top of your head to temporarily block out any external stimulation and energy.
Step 2: Close your eyes and gently breathe in and out as you relax your body and ground yourself in the present moment.
Step 3: When you feel more centered, open your eyes and release your hand.
As a bonus to this, you can also inhale a grounding essential oil – either a blend or singular oil such as Frankincense – and/or hold a grounding crystal in your other hand such as black tourmaline or hematite.
