Today the center that appears congested is your Occiput Chakra.

What does that mean?

The center at the back of the head is called the occiput chakra and is about nurturing, organizing, and structuring.

The brow and occiput chakras are related.  When one is out of balance, they both are.  Where the brow represents the ‘ah–ha’, or the first spark of an idea, the occiput is the structuring pattern that converts this idea either into a verbal or physical manifestation. Without this, there is nowhere for the cognition of the brow to be nurtured and expressed.

When opened, your ah-ha moments feel fantastic, you’re good at organizing and getting things done.  You can structure a plan and take charge.

If this chakra is blocked/underactive, you may be very unorganized.  You may have thoughts that spin circles in your mind, keeping you from taking the next move.    You may function best with a solid structure like a template in order to create structure.

However, if this chakra is too overactive, you tend to make sure to check details and double-check them. People may tell you are too controlling.

Physically, this blockage can manifest itself as headaches at the back of your head, you may have gallbladder issues, or you may feel tight and rigid in your whole body.

By taking quiet time for yourself to feel your breath, you will calm your mind and racing thoughts.  Understanding when you are being too controlling, you can lighten up by being open to another person’s ideas/thoughts.

The Occiput Chakra is located on the back of the head and is indicated as the purple circle on the map.
