After an amazing head massage from my hairdresser recently she commented on the prominence of my occipital bone, located at the back of the head and linked to the third eye, in the centre of the forehead, the home of our spiritual awakening. When I practice Reiki, I am always very much drawn to work on the whole of the back of the head for all my clients.
The Bindu Chakra is located here, at the at the tip of the head, where the bones of the sides and back of the skull meet. It is a great aid for increasing your spiritual path and practice and is known as the "fountain of eternal youth, vitality and health", making it very important centre for our health and wellbeing. This Chakra is one of the least talked about yet most mysterious and remarkable energy centres in the body.
The Bindu produces Amrita, the nectar of immortality, which is truly amazing and aids with the overall health of body, mind and spirit! Yogis say the challenge is to prevent the Manipura Chakra - situated in the solar plexus / navel - from burning the elixir and instead 'catching the drips' in the Throat / Vishuddhi Chakra, so that is works further on the purification and detoxification of the body. It is clearly something I shall continue to investigate in more detail!
This Chakra is associated with eyesight, relaxing emotions and enhancing inner peace and harmony, clarity and balance. We have all dreamed of finding eternal youth and this chakra can help, working with it activates the Pineal Gland, emitting a hormone similar to a 'fountain of youth' affect on your body and mind. It is a health centre that once awakened, improves physical, psychic and spiritual health.
The Bindu Chakra aids with eating disorders as it controls hunger, thirst and overcomes unhealthy eating habits and so helps physical and mental recuperation. Working with the Bindu Chakra helps with the elevation of depression, nervousness, anxiety and self-worth.
How to activate your Bindu Chakra:
Using a fingernail, apply slight pressure on the Bindu Chakra. You will notice feelings of happiness spread throughout your body, a sense of release and calm.
Helping a Child to Sleep
Gently massage this Chakra with soft circular movements for a few minutes and you will notice the child soon quietens and falls asleep.
The symbol of the Bindu Chakra is the Moon, a symbol of perfection, nectar and energy. The moon provides much needed energy to nature, aiding in it's growth and ripening of fruit, as essential for nature as Bindu is essential for the health of the body! I am sure this is one topic I will cover over and over, the 'fountain of youth' is a must and when combined with healthy living and holistic practices, such as daily self-reiki, yoga and meditation we can only win!
Have an awesome day
