Body and Breath: Sacral Energy
Bless up y’all. 🙏🏾
Additional practices for body movement for the energy centers and breath work excercise, Nadhi Shodhana Pranayama, or Alternate Nostril Breath.
Working the Root and Sacral energies.
This work is to assist with building up energy in the body and providing better circulation of its flow.
Left hand engaged using the Vishnu Mudra of Universal Balance by binding the pointer and middle fingers with the flesh of the palm and having an engaged thumb, ring and pinky finger.
- This mudra assists with developing peace, strength and balance to the right and left side of the brain. Ida/Pingala; Aset/Nebethet, Nekhbet/Uadjet; Shiva/Shakti.
- Encourages mental clarity and flow, whilst reducing stress and anxieties.
- Stills the mind in preparation for meditation.
*Also supports the Muladhara or Root Chakra (Kemetic Arit Sefkhet)
Right hand engaged using the Jñana Mudra meaning intuitive wisdom/knowledge. This Mudra is used to channel or allow the flow of life force energy, a.k.a prana, chi, ki, shekem. Creating a circuit which allows the energy that would dissipate into the environment to travel back through the body and up to the brain/crown.
- The index finger representing individual consciousness connects with the thumb, representing supreme consciousness.
- All extended, the middle finger, ring finger, and little finger representing the gunas (qualities) sattva/balance, rajas/action, tamas/inertia.
Again we are taking a couple of rounds of Alternate Nostril Breathes to bring awareness to the system.
On the next exhale begin to engage the muscles of your reproductive organs, (vaginal opening or phallus) as well as the perineum. As we are still working the Muladhara and Svadhisthana Chakra (Kemetic Arit.w Sefkhet and Tekh). Do this for 5 seconds and release into the next shift of your Nadhi Shodhana Pranayama. *Do this as many times as needed or felt.*
Reminder: This exercise is strengthening your pelvic floor muscles. This stimulation lowers blood pressure, respiration, heart rate, contributing to overall well-being.
The second move you see also engages the root/sacral area and continues opening the spine.
- Sitting on the top of the heels with toes activated, spine as straight as possible.
- Or as an alternative sitting on the back of the heels with the tops of the feet resting on your mat.
- Inhale arching the back, pulling the hips back fully engaged.
- Exhale slowly curving the spine bring the pelvis forward.
Stay within the breath, stay with in the body.
Senebt-i (Be well)
