Aromatherapy is the use of aroma compounds such as essential oils, and natural aromatic plant extracts to promote holistic healing and improve psychological and physical well-being. Aromatherapy has been done for centuries by ancient civilizations, energy healers, and modern day therapist and physicians. It is thought that aromatherapy can help relieve stress, anxiety, help sleep, and is a mood elevator. There is mixed reviews from the science community in regards to the effectiveness of aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy works by activating the smell receptors in your nose, which send messages to your brain. Experts agree that some oils may activate certain areas of your brain which play a role with your emotions. The essential oils could also activate your brain to release serotonin which makes us feel good. (ref:

How to Practice Drishti Meditation Healing for Opening Your Third Eye Chakra

yoga meditation

Feel free to listen, feel free to stare.
-Ani DiFranco

The practice of drishti is a gazing technique that develops concentration—and teaches you to see the world as it really is.

👁Drishti organizes our perceptual apparatus to recognize and overcome the limits of “normal” vision.

In Sanskrit, drishti can also mean a vision, a point of view, or intelligence and wisdom. 

🧘🏾‍♀️📍Diani Beach Mombasa Kenya 🇰🇪 Practicing the art of acknowledging our ancestors over my shoulders to the right and to the left.  Grounded and staring inward when my eyes are looking outwards. Seeing the world how it really is thru a divine eye.

Shown in the picture above, I am practicing Drishti stare meditation with my palms open and up to receive and welcome positive energy flow. 

Read this easy guide to practicing Drishti Gaze Meditation

Gaze over your shoulder to acknowledge the ancestors of the father and seek guidance, strength, and love. 

Gaze over your opposite shoulder to acknowledge the ancestors of the mother and seek guidance, strength, and love. 

Place your hands on the earth palms open. Ground and connect with Mother Earth to acknowledge, welcome, and receive her powers and energy flow. 

Practice staring outward with staring at a focal point, keep your my eyes while mindfully breathing. Slightly tile your head upward to the heavens allow your third eye to open stare inward. Place your hands in your lap facing down channeling universal energy and Prana flow completely connecting with self; mind, body, and spirit.

Practicing meditation can require building up stamina to sit still and allow your thoughts to flow, releasing those that do not serve to help your healing and empowerment. Its perfectly okay to start with practicing 2-3 minutes, and build up to 15 minutes over time. Be patient with yourself and allow time to help you build strength with this practice.
