The following are the Yoga Asanas that activate the Soma Chakra and balance physical functions:
In all these postures Ujjayi Pranayama and Khechari Mudra can be performed at the same time with concentration on the Soma Chakra. Viparitakarani Mudra is particularly effective when combined with the following breathing exercise; inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth 15 times.
Another technique for activating the Soma Chakra is to allow 1-2 litres of lukewarm water flow over the Soma Chakra. This is best done in the morning with a jug, or under the shower. The water temperature should be about 39 degree Centigrade in winter and 35 degree Centigrade in summer. At the same time chant the Gayatri Mantra for five times:
"Om Bhur Bhuvah Svah Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi Dhiyo Yo Nah Prachodayat"
Brahmaghata for Soma Chakra
In India, one can sometimes see men who have allowed a thin strand of hair to grow at the back of the head which is then twisted and knotted. This is known as Brahmaghata. It creates pressure on the scalp, similar to acupressure, stimulating nerves and glands and promoting activation of the Soma Chakra.
Those who lack energy, feel constantly tired or suffer from feelings of helplessness should tie a Brahmaghata and concentrate on the Soma Chakra. Within a few days the invigorating effect of the Chakra becomes obvious. This measure is also beneficial for headaches and improves vision. One can also daily massage the scalp in the region of the Soma Chakra with gentle, circular movements using sandalwood oil or paste, in the morning and evening.
