Chakra Communication - 1st and 2nd
Awhile back I did a series on chakras, with some information on how to tune into your own. If you haven't read it, check out the archives, this will give you a good baseline. You can read specific information on the individual chakras, for this one, first and second. Now I would like to invite you to explore how the energy centers work together. This is a complex topic, but I am going to attempt to simplify it, so know this is just the basics. We are going to start with the first chakra, or root chakra, and the second chakra, or sacral chakra. The first chakra, if you remember is associated with survival, while the second is associated with emotions and sexuality. Now lets think about how these two work together, when in balance.
When in balance, you emotions might give you indications when something is amiss with your survival space. You might be scared, worried or on edge about finances, you home, or something similar. This is your call to "pay attention". Another scenario would be how your species survival is tied in with your need to mate on the sexual level. (even if it isn't to procreate) It might be that your survival space could be reassuring your second if you feel uneasy, telling it to "calm down" rather than "pay attention". The key here is allow and notice the communication to discover it.
When it is out of balance it could show up in a variety of ways. But one of the biggest ways I read in people is when you are afraid to be emotional or sexual because it might affect their survival. Fear that being emotional will make you vulnerable on some level. Maybe it might cause you to loose your job, in your mind, if you are emotional at work. Fear that opening up sexually might cause your significant other to leave you or reject you. Sometimes I also see issues with people allowing their emotions to control their survival space, meaning if they feel happy, they feel secure. But if they feel anxious or sad, they are unsafe and need to clamp down and protect themselves on a very primitive level.
Are you beginning to see the communication pattern?
Insightful Inspiration for the week
Notice how your first and second chakras are talking to you. Do you let them talk? Do you trust you emotions to help you survive in the world? Do you allow your survival space to lay the ground work for your energy, allowing it to keep you grounded in your emotions and sexuality? If not, why not? What is keeping you from having this open? Is it training from your childhood? Is it a past relationship that left you feeling vulnerable to the world? Check in and notice where you are allowing a pattern that is no longer useful, to play out in this space.
If you are interested, I could post a little podcast visualization exercise to walk you through this. But you have to comment to tell me you want it. :)
