First of all, assume your Natural Stance. Begin exploring the mobility of your neck by rotating your pelvis in a circular manner clockwise and counter-clockwise. Allow the motions of the torso to animate the head letting the head roll freely, in synch with the motions of the pelvis without using the neck muscles. Use the principle of Grounding to maintain your balance while keeping your whole torso
relaxed throughout the movement and letting your arms hang loose and aligned at your sides.
You may find some muscles around your neck that are sore or tense, which often contributes to the energetic disconnect between the head and the rest of the body. If you find it challenging to synchronize the movements of your Upper Dan Tien (the energy center in the head) and Lower Dan Tien (the energy center in the pelvis), this may indicate general lack of communication between the head and the rest of your body. When this is the case, most people usually do not get stuck in the body but rather in the head. If you experience this kind of challenge, bring attention to the areas of tension in your neck or along the spine to empower and relax those parts of your body using the methods described in the section dedicated to the alignment of the head. When you bring your attention there, you will soon notice some changes happening in those muscles.
