Ascending and Descending Energies
I am responding to your offer of help for particular issues. Perhaps you can help me.
I have some rather challenging issues with my energy patterns. Every time I do any energy work, my energy shoots up to my upper regions, especially to my crown…..I have tried some grounding exercises, but they have not been very helpful. It seems to me that I am having issues with descending the energy again. I think the energy rises up my front and back. Everything goes up, nothing comes down. My head feels like a balloon!
I wonder if there are any exercises that specifically address that concern. I would be very grateful, thank you! -M
Dear M, Ascending energy comes up the back and descending energy goes down the front.
To help balance the two, do the wonderful Main Central exercise, and you can also hold the insides of your knees to bring the energy down (experiment with crossing or not crossing your arms).
Two other exercises:
If there is an effect in the front of the body (like bloating, stomach cramp, etc) then the cause or the tension is in the back so we work on the back to clear the front. A simple exercise to clear the front is to do the following: for the left side, place your right hand over your left shoulder and sit on your left hand (so place your left hand on your left sitting bone, palm up). Do this for at least 20 minutes, and reverse the hands for the right side. This exercise is also good to clear the head, and headaches.
If there is an effect in the back of the body (so back pain, hip pain, etc) then the cause or tension is in the front of the body, so we work on the front to clear the back. A simple exercise to clear the back is to do the following: for the left side, place your right hand over your left shoulder and place your left hand/fingers in your left groin. Do this for at least 20 minutes, then reverse the hands for the right side. This exercise is also great to boost your immune system and helps alleviate heavy legs.
