Sacrament of communion, Honor one another (golden rule), Sefirah of Yesod; all apart of the concepts explored in the next chakra, the Sacral Chakra.
Now that we have established our roots, its time to build on the previous knowledge as we travel upward. Think of each step as a filter, always going through one before the next.
The sacral chakra takes our foundation and starts to build our own individuality through duality. We shift from tribe power focus to more independent and personal power. Our personal power of choice/creation/matter. When we start to ask ourselves "Where do we pull our power to make choices?" *(more to explore this question at the end)
Fear is an extremely effective mode of motivation, but its longevity has proven to not stand the test of time. It leaves one feeling hollow, empty, void, and crumbling in on its own skeleton. We have seen so many examples of this in every facet of life.
The fun dualism you learn with this chakra is your internal relationship (that is the internal monologue you got going on up there) reflects onto your relationships with others.
Whether you like it or not; ‘as above, so below’.
The core lesson is to Honor One Another, uniting both ends of the scale to achieve a better understand of your relationship with others, and most importantly yourself!!
It also reflects our need for relationships with other people and our relationship with ourselves.
Most of us have seen a meme or post with a similar message as this “you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat others”. Depending on your understanding of symbolic language and its depth, the knowledge gained can be small or great by just observing these more natural encounters (not consciously controlled and scripted)
I feel Dr Caroline Myss puts it beautifully when she says, “We can more easily see the symbolic value of our relationships when we release our compulsion to judge what and who has value and instead focus on honoring the person and the task with which we are involved” (131 Myss).
While we cannot control others and their actions, but we can control our reactions.
For sake of imagery, newtons third law; we can manipulate and choose where to direct the equal or opposite reaction.
As I have said before, healing is all about balancing. Its good to have personal power, but it can also be toxic if the scale swings too far one way.
In the muddled knowledge of our time it can be difficult to even view a state of healthy personal power and maintaining a healthy ego. At our root chakra we learn to find power in our ‘tribe’ or our social groups, in the sacral chakra we must learn to find our Personal Power within personal balance.
Power can be a dirty word, and no doubt we are not short of examples backing up this belief. But like money, it is only a tool used by people, and each person’s intent determines how it is manifested and used. The time is nigh for everyone to get real with their relationship to power; by simply observing and paying close attention to your thoughts and inner monologue when you bring up the idea of power. Work through the relationship like you were in therapy with it, because once you learn to understand its effects on you; it gives you the power (cause knowledge is power!) to know how and when you are being controlled by an external force.
Judgement is not to be passed on tools, it is to be passed on the people and their intent to use these tools. On their own they are neither malignant or good, simply benign. The challenge for us it not to practice abstinence, but “to achieve sufficient internal strength to interact comfortably with physical power without negotiating away our spirits” (Myss 161).
Within this space your creativity also originates, and your intentions are formed. It is always in a constant state of evolution and self improvement. I am honestly quite surprised more people don’t explore these thoughts and processes naturally…. one of the many things that make me the weird child =P (and proud of it!)
"Where do we pull our power to make choices?"
*When you need to weigh pros and cons, contemplate to exercise your power of choice. Where do you go in your mind? What is the scene around you, the lighting, the feeling, the atmosphere? As you step up to your inner looking glass, what do you feel? Explore it, question it, and most importantly stay curious about it. *
This feels important so i am going to say it again
Explore it, question it, and most importantly stay curious about it.
