Communication... this space can get complicated, but if it is affected by safety, it can get down right hard! This blog is about the communication between your first and fifth chakra. If you want to know more about these individual energy centers got to the previous posts on Journey through your chakras first and fifth.
This communication is about feeling safe and grounded in your communication. People kid themselves on this one a lot. Thinking they are more grounded in their communication or safe to speak their mind regardless of consequences. But most of us have things we don't feel safe to communicate. One example I run across often is people not feeling safe to tell others they went to a psychic. What would people think?! (honestly, they would think ME TOO!)
When communication is flowing, the wisdom of what is safe to communicate and what isn't is flowing appropriately. Sometimes it isn't safe to communicate something and your energy centers talk to each other and modify accordingly. Where we get blocked off is when we don't read these signals right and we block up the communication artificially.
For example, lets say your employer is taking advantage of you and you really feel used by the situation, but you don't feel safe to communicate this unhappiness because you think you might loose your job, then not be able to pay your bills, loose a place to live, etc. If you could look at this situation from a clear point of view, you might find that it is safe to communicate this need and your are safe to make this request.
Don't get me wrong, there are times when not feeling safe to communicate is valid... but rarely. The key is to be open to the communication between the energy centers and allow it to function in balance.
Another way these two energy centers work together is to ground your communication. Meaning it makes sense and is coming from a place of connectedness with the planet. If you are in an emergency and you are screaming "We are all going to die!" that is not going to work well to getting you to safety. But if if you can ground your communication and give clear leadership in the situation, you are more likely to have a positive outcome.
Insightful Inspiration of the week
Where are you convincing yourself that it isn't safe to communicate? Is it a valid fear? What is the worst case scenario if you communicated in this situation? How likely is it to happen?
Have you resorted to outright lying to yourself or others because of this fear of not being safe? How can you shift this energy to speaking your truth and feeling grounded and safe in doing so?
Are there situations where you tend to communicate irrationally from a place of fear that takes away your ability to be heard by others? In stressful situations, can you communicate calmly or do you "loose it"? How can you shift this energy to be in balance even under the most intense stress? It can really be a value to you in your moment of need and can show others your ability to shine as a leader.
Here is a podcast for you to do a guided visualization of this week's inspiration.
