A very integral part of Donna Eden’s teaching is her Daily Energy Routine, which she designed to rebuild the immune system, relieve pain, increase vitality and improve clarity of mind. When I discovered the routine, I had no idea it would end of my 25 year struggle with chronic, debilitating migraines and lead to relief from my own autoimmune disorders. Committing to this simple, daily self-care really changed my life, and I am confident it can yours as well!
Each month, I am highlighting, in detail, one exercise from Donna Eden’s Official Daily Energy Routine. We have covered the 4 Thumps, the Shoulder Pull, the Cross Crawl and the Wayne Cook Posture in previous months. You can still find these tips on my Facebook page, Empowered Energy Wellness. This month I am covering the Crown Pull, which sequentially comes after the exercises listed above, in the official routine. However, each of these simple exercises certainly can be done individually or out of order…and still remain effective in their purpose.
Most of us live busy, stressful lifestyles, which force our brains to process an incredible amount of information, and of course, energy. This overwhelming amount of energy often gets stuck in our brain and the bones in the skull. Constrictions in the physical anatomy, as well as in the energy pathways, limit the space available for oxygen, cerebral spinal fluid, blood and energy to flush through effectively, as it is naturally intended to do. This can result in headaches, mental congestion and insomnia. Have you ever felt like your head is just full…or stuffy headed? This happens when your head is literally stuffed full of energy and has no space move.
The Crown Pull is a physical stretch that is designed to open the Crown chakra (a spiraling energy center on top of the head), literally making space in the head for stagnant energy to be released. This exercise can help clear your mind, calm your nervous system and stimulate blood flow in the head. This often helps relieve headaches, sharpen memory and improve sleep quality. Clearing the Crown chakra also opens you up for higher inspiration and deeper spirituality. This exercise is best done at least once daily, and more often if you have chronic headaches like I did. It also feels great…every time I do it I can feel a cool, refreshing release of energy, and a renewed sense of clarity!
The Crown Pull
(takes about 15 seconds)
Breathe deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth and…
1. Place thumbs on temples, resting fingertips at the center of forehead.
2. Slowly, with pressure, pull fingers apart, stretching the skin above eyebrows.
3. Then place fingertips at hairline and repeat the stretch (with pressure). Repeat this pattern at the top, center and back of head. Stop at the base of the neck. (If you would like to go further you can also do the same stretch above the ears, along the suture lines of the skull)
4. Move hands down to shoulders, push fingers in and hold. When ready, rest your hands on the Heart Chakra, for at least one breath.

That is a very small percentage of your day, and I think you’ll find the benefits well worth it. I honestly don’t go a day without doing it, at least once!
