Did you know that we all have a halo? It is a line of energy that stretches from ear to ear, across the brow, which we call the arcline in Kundalini Yoga. It is the central nucleus of our aura, the point at which the energies of the chakras come together to rest.
Our arcline is our essence, and it needs to be nourished. In this guide we will explore exactly what the arcline is, how to activate it, and how to ensure it is the strongest it can be.
What is the Arcline?
Let’s look at the essentials first. In Kundalini Yoga it is believed that we are made up of ten bodies. The arcline is the sixth of these bodies. It is the ring of energy that circles our head, projecting us to the world. It governs our intuition and judgment, and supports decision making and our professional processes.
When the arcline is strong we feel able to concentrate, our focus is intense and unwavering, and we can meditate with ease. On the other hand, when the arcline is weak or underdeveloped we may find ourselves to be easily influenced, struggle to make decisions, unfocused, and unhappy.
How to Activate the Arcline
When we work on ourselves, we activate our arcline. The more time we put into self-care and self-love, the more power our arcline projects. A strong sense of awareness allows us to fix issues before they bloom out of all control. In doing so, we reinforce the essence of our energy that is encapsulated by the arcline.
Spending meditative time in reflection helps us to activate the Sixth Body by boosting self awareness and helping to manifest our dreams. It allows us to recognize our power within ourselves, which is then reflected in the arcline.
How to Strengthen the Arcline
Many Kundalini yoga meditations will have a positive impact on the arcline because they encourage reflection and introspection.
It is also essential to practice Satya in order to strengthen the Sixth Body. This is the art of speaking the truth, being true to oneself, embracing the beauty of simplicity, and always, always practicing what you preach. Taking time each day to set intentions and journaling your reflections whilst burning a cleansing incense is a great way to build this habit.
Basing your life around these central tenets boosts the self awareness and self belief that are essential to a strong arcline. When you have mastered this practice, the arcline is able to protect you and project your essence to the world.
Continue your Journey
Strengthening the arcline is a process and won’t happen overnight. It’s about creating healthy habits that will last a lifetime. But once these practices become regular habits you will begin to see a whole host of benefits, such as increased focus, intuition, and good concentration, so the sooner you start, the better.
