Quest to Spirituality - Chakras
I've learned a lot about Chakras so far, but only a bit seems to stick . I've noticed that all of my Chakras need some work. Which is why my life is in a stand still. It's hard to get motivated when you're so sad/depressed/full of habit you can't get motivated. The fact that I'm writing this right now is pretty awesome. Point one for the doing what I told myself to do! Power Chakra health here I come.
So, here's a bit of what I learned about Chakras. There is more, but here's what I remember. All Chakras are energy. There health = spinning in a circle in a regular speed, going clockwise. I would think counter clockwise would be fine, if everyone is doing it...but whatever. There colors are Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Purple/White. They align your spine. Start from the coccyx all the way up to your brain. They are you. They are not the reason you are a certain way, you are the reason they are a certain way. Think of parts of you spinning in circles from your head down to your tailbone. Those butterflies in your stomach is your Second Chakra jumping. The frog in your throat is your Fourth Chakra jumping back for a moment.
Root Chakra: It is your foundation. Security, Stability. It is the one which deals with your legs, feet, bowels etc. It is the root of the tree, and located on your sacrum, or around that. It glows red. It is when you feel financially secure. Family secure. Stable in your history, family etc. Also physically secure I would imagine.
Second Chakra: This is your fertility. Emotion. Sexuality. Pleasure. When a person is a nymphomaniac they have a second chakra health problem. When a person is over-emotional, etc. I think I've helped this Chakra a lot over time. I was always over-emotional, obsessive - emotions took over me. I didn't take over them. Recently I've dealt with it, and I believe this one is almost at it's perfect health.
Third Chakra: Power Chakra. Really need to work on this one. It's blocked right now, or at least so unhealthy and tiny that it's close enough. This is the "Do it" one. The power. An example of having an unhealthy Power Chakra would be when someone is bossy, controlling, arrogant, and won't receive any help. They are the ones who you cannot stand to be around, because you say one word and they tell you you're wrong. I help someone who is like this...it's horrid. Thank goodness I'm on the shy side of the power, not the over-bearing one. I don't think I would like myself at all.
Fourth Chakra: Your Hearth Chakra.This is my main source of energy. The one I use the most. The one that keeps me sane, and the one I usually can handle pretty easily. I understand it more than any of the others. It is when you love everything, yourself, and just connect with everyone is a very loving way. It sounds hippie, but it's not. It's not going around and hugging trees, but appreciating their oxygen. If you are unhealthy with this Chakra you can go from doing too much for everyone, not taking care of yourself to - not helping everyone, therefore disconnecting from the world. I know that for me, at the moment, I need to work on my Heart. I've always been understanding, accepting of others, until recently. Someone in my life I feel is abusing me, my family, and my friend/s (Financially/Emotionally). For a while I wasn't very understanding. I was in a very negative state of mind, and hated myself for it. I blamed it on the person who I felt was abusing his privilege of having a place to stay,a good girlfriend, and other things...but it was me. I understand the care, love, connection, and I don't want it to change if everyone is happy. I just couldn't stand the feeling of abuse. Anyway, I do love myself. There have been times when I didn't - very brief, but I do. That comes from here.
Fifth Chakra: Your throat chakra. This is where your expression comes from. Writing, Speaking, Singing etc. All having to do with the throat. This one needs work for me, which is the main reason I am writing this. Having an unbalanced Fifth Chakra = not being able to form complete sentences, forgetting words (This word is...what is that, wait...), being tongue tied, 'frog in your throat' etc. This chakra is so weak for me that I seem very shy. It's mostly because I don't know what to say, and that has to change. I don't really know how to do that...besides writing. I feel like my entire life I've been trying to figure out how to express myself. That, and how to DO (third chakra). I've been trying to express myself, and that must be the reason I feel that the diary should be read by others. When I am interrupted - I let it go half the time. I believe that what I say isn't important. It really sucks when people belittle what you say, call you stupid because of a thought, and make fun of the way you say something. I didn't think I was, but I really was bullied as a child. Huh. I guess it doesn't feel like it's bullying (the same as other kids) if your 'friends' are the ones doing it.
Sixth Chakra: This is your intuition. Also your psychic energy. This is your gut feeling. I know that I could have an amazing psychic energy, if I just let myself. My intuition is quite strong. I just don't listen to it. Many times I would take a test and my intuition would say "A", and I would ignore it because I thought it was wrong. Turns out - it was A. That has happened so often, you would think I'd follow it more. I have recently been listening to my intuition. Or at least what I can hear. I'll ask myself questions,and then consider myself stupid right afterwards. I know that I could be tuned into other people's energies, just gotta work on it.
Seventh Chakra: This is your spiritual chakra. The one which connects God to you, or the earth - depending on what you believe. This is not a 'be religious or you will fall' ...it 's a 'Be true to yourself, and you will go far'. If you believe in nothing at all, then your seventh chakra is weak. If you believe in the earth, universe, and there is something connecting everyone and everything together - then your seventh chakra is probably healthy. It's all about your view in things. I believe in God. I believe that God created us, and connects us all together. I honestly don't understand the seventh chakra as much as the others. I just know that I hope to get there soon.
