How to “Acknowledge” each other’s Soul.

We place the hands together at the heart chakra, close the eyes, and bow the head. It can also be done by placing the hands together in front of the third eye, bowing the head, and then bringing the hands down to the heart. This is an especially deep form of respect.

“ My divine soul recognizes the divine soul in you”

The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra.

The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.

Nurture the Heart with Yoga, Crystals and Affirmations

Benefits of Anahatasana (Heart Melting Pose) Anahatasana expand the chest and give a soothing effect on the Anahata chakra is associated with feelings and emotions. It can release any blocked emotions and we can feel free of the burdens of the heart.

Deeply opens the shoulders, pectoral muscles of the chest, thoracic spine, neck and lower back. Heart and lung meridians receive a fresh burst of prana.

From hands and knees position, melt your heart towards the Earth to the degree that feels appropriate. Ultimately your chest can lay on the ground, with the chin tilting up. This will compress and massage the back on the neck and must only be done if comfortable. Hold for 3-5 minutes, breathing deeply into the shoulders, neck, spine, chest and lower back. Always remember where your attention goes, energy flows and it is important in these type of challenging Yin yoga poses to remain focused inwards.

Observe the emotions rising in this yoga pose. Melting heart is particularly effective in releasing heavy or sad feelings, so you may have a need to cry which will create profound healing. By the end of the pose, you will feel joy and lightness.
