SAFETY AS A STATE OF MIND
I recently heard a recording of an educator named Rhys Thomas[link here]. The subject was ta energy systems of the body as seen through the Yogic Chakra System. The talk was part of Margaret Lynch, The 7 Levels of Wealth Manifestation [link here]. The course came at a perfect time and has helped me tackle some issues that, I am sure, many people can relate to.
How safe do I feel in the world? How much is my safety influenced by how or who I take my information from. Information as to what is happening in the world around me, both globally and personally ? How does how I perceive the world influence what is going on inside of me? To some this may be too big of a can of philosophical worms to open, but these are issues I have been meditating on, at times worrying about for quite a long time.
THE BODY AS A MIRROR FOR OUR EMOTIONS
The pelvis, hips and spine are our core [link here]. When we feel strong in our bodies we also feel better about being in the world and holding our own. When those areas are injured or weak we are more apt to feel vulnerable and questioning of our circumstances. Having issues in these areas can make us stronger spiritually and in many other ways. One does not need to completely heal these areas on a physical level to feel safe. In fact, maladies can teach us where strength truly is from. It can show us a deeper place and the issues behind the physical symptoms can be resolved on a deeper level.
I just received an email from a person marketing a water purification product . His pitch was based on the recent earthquake that was felt from the southern USA up to Canada. He mentioned the Nuclear Plant in Virginia being effected and how we are all vulnerable, etc. When I found myself getting really upset and then angry at his sales tactics, I realized that my anger was a messenger. I needed to look at my response and not his presentation. As I sat down and felt what was happening in my body I could feel a tightening in my most vulnerable areas, which are my hips, pelvis, going up my spine to the base of my skull.
To get to the point, The 1st and 2nd Chakras are all about our basic functioning and safety in the world. Both located below the navel, they represent the functions of locomotion, stability safety and sexuality. When our safety is threatened those areas show up with all different kinds of dysfunction. These two Chakras, according to Rhys Thomas, deeply effect our Sixth Chakra. The Sixth Chakra is located between our eyes. In essence our 1st and 2nd Chakra issues greatly effect how we perceive our world within and without. Chakra basic location and some details [link here].
More about the Chakras and how the condition of them effect how we see and feel the world in later posts. This subject is so pertinent to our daily lives. I truly believe it is at the heart of our survival and ability to flourish in these times we are living in.
