Sefirah of Tif’eret
Sacrament of marriage (as an archetype)
The first three chakras focus mostly on our physical reality. This fourth chakra is our gateway into our emotional and spiritual realities. This energy pool will reflect our emotional perceptions of reality far stronger than our mental perceptions.
We see in this chakra, a mini reflection of the entire chakra system much like a crystal reflecting the light spectrum as a rainbow.
With that being said, this one can get messy and complicated not only because everyone’s reflection is different and personalized; also because as a culture we have only recently adopted the idea of ‘emotional maturity’ and really don’t have the universal vocabulary and support to analyze this subject at the depth we can for most of the physical matter we study. Obviously with time and persistence we have seen an improvement and are starting to have a better understanding in this field of study. Philosophy and its impacts on the sociological and anthropological levels. This can sometimes illuminate things previously seen as completely unrelated to having a path of convergence, effecting each other’s presentation to the greater whole. This is the juicy stuff that lights up my synapses

We have all heard at some point the notion that “Love is the most powerful emotion” and honestly, I have to agree. We see it in real life, in movies, shows, lectures, pretty much anything we create lol. Love can have a powerful effect and be and insane driving force or will. I challenge you to take this seriously and understand that your emotions hold more energy than your ‘mental energy’.
The challenge we are most confronted with when examining this part of ourselves, is focusing and balancing our feelings about our emotional self. There is a difference between self-care and self-love. Self-care may come from self-love, but it is generated from the solar plexus chakra and usually comes in the form of a reward or comforting action. Self-love isn’t always comfortable, its loving yourself enough to get uncomfortable for the right reasons.
We relate the Sefirah of Tif’eret to this chakra as well because it is the symbolic strength, beauty, and nurturing compassion within Yahweh. It also emulates the give and take nature of love, further understanding how it operates or flows. With this we can learn to balance the amount of energy we give and take to balance compassion and judgement. In order to house and exchange energy, this also serves as a place for transmutation of energy; where we can take one feeling and transform it to an emotion or thought , ideally to one that better serves us and the greater whole. Balancing self interest with loving kindness to others. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ ✧ﾟ･: *ヽ(◕ヮ◕ヽ)
We also relate the sacrament of marriage as an archetype to this chakra. What I mean by ‘as an archetype’ is that I use the word in most basic understanding of the sense, no predisposition or culture means to it. Therefor it represents your bond with yourself, the union internally with yourself and soul. You cannot bestow and shower people with love if you do not first generate the love within yourself. “You can’t love anyone until you learn to love yourself.”
I know this can be a hard pill to swallow, and some of us have or still have a long way to go. Its hard to love yourself when most of the time we are frustrated with ourselves and nature. But the first step to heal these types of wounds is to let go. Let go of our emotional pain, and not as in throw it away or suddenly detach all and any emotion from it. I mean letting go of the need to understand why things are as they are or why this or that has happened to you. We release the need for self-determined justice or acting in an overcompensating way to cover or mask pain. Letting the them flow down the river, surrendering to that which you cannot control. Unhealed wounds will act as a slow toxin bubbling to the surface of your mind repeatedly until it is confronted and healed. Unhealed wounds stunt our growth and keep us living in the past. Love yourself enough to heal them.
“Life’s challenges is a lesson in some aspect of love. How we respond to these challenges is recorded within our cell tissues: we live within the biological consequences of our biographical choices” (Dr. Myss 199).
At the end of the day ask yourself, what will I do with all this left-over negative energy and pain? Am I just going to let it sit and season me to that flavor? Or will you use it as an excuse to allow fear more control over you life? Or can you let it go and release its authority over you with an act of forgiveness? Not gonna lie, HARDEST THING EVVVVVVVVERRRRRRRRRR. that’s why you don’t judge yourself for not being what you think you should be, but celebrate the baby steps you take towards what you would like to be.
WHAT ABOUT BOB! LOL I love that movie
