The Practice

Allow yourself the gift of 10-15 minutes of uninterrupted time and space for this practice. You deserve it!

Bring your awareness to the fact that the Crown is where we receive intuitive guidance and connection to our higher self or higher power. Make it a purposeful practice. This is a time where you can ask questions or request guidance.

 

Water

Water has always been renowned as a highly effective element or spiritual conduit. Ritual baths have been a rich ceremony for thousands of years. Even a simple intention setting while in the shower can be a powerful practice in asking to clear any cluttered energy that may have built up through the course of everyday stress and tension. Another simple practice is to add a drop of detoxifying tea tree oil or stimulating peppermint oil to your shampoo to clean and open your Crown.

Writing

can be highly therapeutic - even a 5-minute free-form writing exercise before you start a hair treatment. This brain-dump serves to purge any mental residue (anger, judgments, frustrations) that may have built up during the week. [ always a good idea to destroy the paper when you are finished]. Alternatively, you can use this time before your appointment to list insights you received or moments of gratitude you experienced during the week. Vibrationally, what you give attention to, you get more of.

Essential oils

Try adding a drop or two of essential oils to your favourite hair mask or regular/ daily conditioner. The world of essential oils is rich and diverse, and fun to explore. You can add to any pre-made deep conditioning mask or experiment to make your own oil treatment using a carrier oil; jojoba oil and coconut oil are great carrier oils for all hair types, while almond oil is great for irritated scalp, and pumpkin-seed oil stimulates growth. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Rosemary: Stimulates growth, circulates blood and stagnant energy
  • Lavender: relieves anxiety, soothes scalp, and provides root to end hair health
  • Frankincense: energetically grounding, memory, follicle health

Sound is a simple, beneficial tool for quieting the mind...
 
 

Meditation

Try closing your eyes and focusing on your breath as a simple, meditative technique before, during or after your treatment as a way to turn your attention inward and let go of your day. Apps like Headspace and Omvana are great tools if you prefer guidance or structure (and a timer!). We also love the Chakra tuner app. It tones the entire chakra system in seven minutes. Sound is a simple, beneficial tool for quieting the mind, and chanting/ toning along with an app can help you stay present.
