...with Scarlett de la Torre .
Scarlett De la Torre is a multi-faceted global nomad, Sound Healer, DJ, musician, and humanitarian.
She has travelled the world for over a decade performing in the world's most dazzling venues such as Watergate Berlin; and Festivals such as Sunwaves, Romania. She is a heavy rotator in the Burning Man Sonic landscape at Kazbah, Distrikt, Maxa Xaman, and Robot Heart.
Her global mission is to build projects to raise funds to donate instruments and provide music instruction to survivors of trafficking and refugees of war as music therapy.

She has since become a Bay Area ceremonial powerhouse as a facilitator of consciousness-expanding Sound Meditations & Singing Circles & Ceremonies.

Hello light being, welcome to today’s guided journey - a meditation to help you step into your soul’s expansion.

If you’re discovering this series for the first time, I would like to guide you, to begin with one of the earlier journeys before coming back to this one. This series is an exploration of the chakra system, which distributes the flow of prana or energy throughout your subtle body. Stress, illness, emotional upset, or conflict all can cause blockages or imbalance in your chakra system. And since all of the seven chakras are interconnected, when one chakra experiences a blockage or imbalance, it affects all the others. This disruption of energy can cause your mind, body, and spirit to suffer.

Over the course of this series of guided meditations, we have cleared many energetic blockages to reach this point the crown chakra and as energy rises from the root upwards, it is best to begin there with the root chakra. Simply scroll back to the beginning a few episodes down below, on the listings to catch up.

So, with that said, let’s begin.

Today, we’re closing this series of guided journeys with Sahasrara, your crown chakra.

Also known as “the bridge to the cosmos.” It is the most spiritual in nature of all seven chakras. Located above the crown of the head, it acts as the individual's centre of spirit, enlightenment, wisdom, universal consciousness, and connection to higher guidance.

In a sense, the crown chakra is our highest potential. It governs interaction & communication with the universe, one’s senses of inspiration & devotion, union with the higher self & the divine, and deeper understanding; simultaneously, it is responsible for a healthy spiritual life.

The crown chakra allows for the experiences of unity and universal connectedness, as well as the integration of the whole.

If the crown chakra is out of balance or plagued by stuck energy, a range of emotional cues can act as red flags pointing in the direction of the problem. Common indicators of trouble with the crown chakra include difficulty meditating, difficulty feeling connected, and spiritual disinterest, as well as boredom, feeling antsy with the mundane, not feeling connected to one’s purpose or wisdom, or desiring complete isolation.

Perhaps the strongest signs of an unbalanced crown chakra are depression, apathy, and scepticism and in some cases lethargy. Meanwhile, others include stubbornness, excessive sarcasm, and narrow-mindedness.

So, by working to balance the energies of the crown chakra, we can enhance our mental and spiritual intellect. The energy of the Crown Chakra is supplied by the other six chakras. And this is the reason it is important to work on the lower six chakras to effectively activate the Crown Chakra.

This episode is the final instalment of this special series of meditations I created to help bring balance and calm to your days. If you have followed this far and want to continue to step into your expansion in much greater depth, either by working 1:1 or as a part of my group offering The Soulprint, you can apply today, simply Direct message me the word ‘Expansion’ over on IG @intuitsoulsalon OR send an email to [email protected].

The Soulprint is a 7-week journey through which I will share with you the exact tools, rituals and self-healing and regulation pratcies you need to embody your fully human self; mind, body, heart and spirit. It helps you rediscover the essence of your most authentic and empowered self, to initiate deep healing and step into the highest version of yourself. so

Now, make yourself as comfortable as you can, taking a few deep breaths to centre your being.

You can hit pause and resume when you’re ready to begin.

My wish is that it will help

Hello and welcome to today’s guided journey - a meditation to reconnect you with your sense of intuition. I hope that it will connect you to your innate guidance.

We’re focusing on balancing Ajna, your third eye chakra.

The third eye chakra, also known as Ajna, is considered to be the sixth chakra in the body. This chakra is said to be located in the centre of your head, parallel to the middle of your eyebrows. It's believed to be linked to perception, awareness, and spiritual communication.

A blocked Third Eye can wreak havoc on your physical well-being. Since this energy centre governs the pituitary gland and neurological function, your body’s ability to fight infection, regulate sleep, and maintain balanced metabolic function is compromised. As a result, you may find you are frequently sick, suffer from insomnia, or develop high blood pressure.

Additional physical signs of a Third Eye chakra blockage are:

  • migraines
  • sinusitis
  • seizures
  • poor vision
  • sciatica

By unblocking the third eye chakra, we raise our consciousness and our ability to intuit.

This is the penultimate instalment of a special series of meditations that I have created to help bring balance and calm to your day. If you're discovering this series for the first time, I would suggest you scroll a few episodes down and begin with the Root Chakra guided meditation, since energy rises up, it is best to begin there.

In this series, I take you through 7 unique journeys. These are centred around the bio-electromagnetic system - aka the Chakra system.

Make yourself as comfortable as you can, taking a few deep breaths to centre your being.

You can pause and resume when you’re ready to begin.

I wish you an enlightening practice.

With Infinite light,

Hello and welcome to today’s guided journey - a meditation to unblock your sense of expression. I hope that it will connect you to your inner truth.

We’re focusing on balancing Vishuddha, your throat chakra.

The throat chakra plays an essential role in communication, creativity, and self-expression. When there’s an imbalance in this chakra, you may notice you have a harder time communicating effectively.

If this chakra is blocked or unbalanced, you may:

  • be fearful about speaking your personal truth
  • have a harder time expressing your thoughts
  • feel anxious about speaking or communicating

You may experience outbursts of emotion or even the opposite: extreme quiet or refusal to speak.

Emotionally, those with fifth chakra imbalances may be highly critical of themselves and others.

Physical symptoms may manifest as:

By healing the throat chakra, we enhance our ability to express our highest truth.

This episode continues the special series of meditations that I have created to help bring balance and calm to your day. Look out for these every alternate week.
