Over the past weekend our YTT group explored the Chakras and kundalini. Each of us also received guidance from someone who reads energy. In the process, it was clear there were areas of chakras where each of us were blocked from moving forward with something meant to unfold.
The relationship between the chakra system and Maslow's hierarchy of needs is evident when one compares the two. However, the 6th and 7th chakras, go beyond our individual fulfillment. While these higher levels are wonderful to dream our way toward, taking care of the lower levels is essential. Most of us are still functioning with some limits within the lower two or three; a sense of safety and belonging.
What is it that keeps us in the realm of these lower levels?
Fear. Repression. Circumstances can certainly be real. And where we can, when we can, we move beyond our fear of not enough.... money, comfort, belonging.
How do we move beyond the fear?
We build our courage and our resilience. When we believe in the value we bring to the world. We take care of our body and our mind. We work for something beyond survival and pleasure. We let others see who we really are and what we dream.
