There is a big chance that you will benefit from my own experience, but i will also try to list other suggestions from other people who encountered the same symptom.
Why do we feel the energy pressure in the first place? Once we are spiritually awake, the upper chakras (crown & third eye) start to open first, and this causes the channeled energy to accumulate around the head causing a very strong pressure that can be painful at times. Eventually the throat chakra, and the heart chakra begin to open too, and this may lead to feelings of energy flushing through your heart or throat. Pressure always means resistance, it means that there is something you are not allowing, or some physical tension that you are not relaxing; it may also mean that you are controlling your life instead of allowing it to naturally flow and unfold.
Now, if you are one of those who struggle with such symptom, here is a meditation that helped me a lot. Note that his meditation below can be adjusted to suit your own needs, and your own experience, be your own judge.
Step one: Sit in a very comfortable position and make sure that you will not be disturbed for at least 10 minutes. The position of your hand does not matter.
Step two: Breath mindfully, take 3-4 deep breath, feel and follow your breath as it goes in and out at a very slow pace.
Step three: Turn your attention to the pressure around your head but without any focus, do not try to force it to move or spin, just relax your head, relax your lips, your jaw, your forehead, and the back of your head. Do it gently and slowly, no rush.
Step four: Think of the pressure as water, and of yourself as a sponge, slowly absorb the pressure into the area that connects your head with your neck (the upper part of your neck) Feel is moving down through your neck very slowly.
Step five: start turning your attention to the are between your neck and shoulders, the pressure will distribute there moving through your shoulders, feel it filling your shoulders, and arms.
Step six: At this point you should already be feeling less pressure around your head, now absorb more of this energy into your upper back, and chest, and feel it move down gently and slowly until it reaches your feet then out to earth.
End your meditation once you feel that the energy is evenly distributed across your body. Think of your energy body as one big chakra surrounding your whole physical body, and expanding, allow it to get bigger and bigger.
Note: If you feel better during the meditation, it is recommended that you do it on daily basis, until the energy stays centered and balanced all the time.
Other suggestions: The below suggestions also came from many spiritual teachers, and they work for some, so in case the meditation does not help, you can go ahead and try those techniques.
- Quit meditation for a while and get involved into physical activities, just enjoy your life and ignore this pressure. Deal with it as background noise until it is gone.
- Perform a yoga exercise.
- Take a shower whenever the pressure feels so intense, water is grounding.
- walk barefoot on natural ground, that is another way to ground yourself.
Love & Light...
