Owning your Identity

The power of your 2nd chakra, Owning your identity

The 2nd chakra represents either side of the spectrum, pain or pleasure. It is linked to lack and scarcity or abundance and prosperity. It represents your identity within the world and your relationship to the resources that nourish and nurture, money, food and sex.

It is often modeled, imprinted and developed based on your family systems, their beliefs habits and patterns.

Where lack and scarcity bring upon fear of unworthy, neediness, not enough, hiding, self judgment, hopeless, and a host negative feelings and emotions.

Abundance and prosperity brings with it clarity, focus, a sense of peace, trust and more than enough. It speaks of owning your own identity around your basic needs, money, food, sex.

These 2 sides of the spectrum are designed to have movement~ e-motion, energy in motion. Therefore when you are caught in the current, the flow of emotions you can see, feel and turn your emotions into a powerful transformer of circumstances. Where there was lack and scarcity, identify the relationship, the trigger, the point you feel and how you describe the feeling. From here, begin a process to redefine the feeling. Confront fears, the basis for holding negative feelings and emotions. Take actions that challenge you, scare you and trust, that transforms your feeling quick, it’s an accomplishment, and says yes I can and I do.

Abundance and prosperity is meant to be shared. It’s meant to flow, that’s the true nature of the 2nd chakra when healthy and balanced. You flow, your resources flow freely meaning no negative charge to hold them stuck and stagnant.

2nd chakra is how we relate to our emotions and feelings and how we can flow in the world, our resources and relationships. If you find you get a bit stuck or unsure, find trust, step forward, find pleasure and joy and act. Often the simplicity of giving gets you unstuck. Giving from a positive emotion, no attachment, this is what it means to give freely, non attachment.

Learning to navigate your 2nd chakra will give you a plan of action. It identifies your feelings and emotions and directs you, without attachment, to where to transform and shift your interaction and energy. Energy meaning thoughts, feelings and actions, your beliefs. Once again, often the beliefs were planted by family patterns. As you look, and see, as you decide you want a different outcome, feeling, belief you begin to feel and act from that place.

It begins with giving. With opening up your heart, with finding trust in yourself and freely giving with passion and self love.

It’s where you own your identity. Who you are in the world

It’s a beautiful chakra to have spinning and moving healthy and clear. Enjoy the process

Trust The true power you hold within

Trust

Trust is an interesting topic. I believe we’ve been taught, programmed and accepted that trust comes from outside of self, or even put into another power, a higher power.

Yet, there is so much beauty, Self Love and understanding of Self when one places trust in their own hands.

Here is how I understand trust.

It’s a relationship with yourself from your first, second and third chakras. First chakra relates to safety security and place of home. Second chakra relates to pleasure, joy, community, sense of belonging. It relates to your connection to the outer world through your senses. And, third chakra relates to personal power, your own sense of value and worth.

If your first and second chakras are in relationship to how we need each other in a way for survival, what does the model of needing each other look like for thriving? And if personal power is about self worth, how do you choose to show up valuing yourself.

Trust is a relationship you have with yourself. Your ability to know the ground beneath you, your foundation of safety and security, the way you provide for yourself, the way you honor yourself and the way you value and receive your joy and pleasure, this is based on your Self. The self of you that is unshakeable because of the faith and trust you have in who you are and your own personal intimate relationship with Source. Your connection to the ground below you and the sky above you. Ultimately the currency of Self Love, the currency of trust in Self and your Divine Beingness.

Trust holds the power within you. Trust speaks from your foundation of safety and security. You know you are safe, for your truth and your alignment, your integrity are in relationship with how you feel. Yes, how you feel about yourself.

That’s right, feeling. Do you have self love? Do you honor your word? Do you value yourself? Do you find no need to be right, to judge, to control or get anything? Your feelings of self control, a place of freedom, peace, pleasure and joy is the process through which trust comes through.

What I am saying is, when in the feelings, abundant with who you are, through self control, freedom, peace, pleasure and joy, you gain, you earn trust within yourself. And, these feelings become effortless and easy when you are in your truth. From your truth, you trust.

So this is different than trust outside of self. Trust outside of self looks to others, for others to help, for others to be held with some accountability or responsibility. Trust outside of self will find safe ways, things that have some sort of known, comfort or outside authority. Trust outside of self wants to have a proven system or plan, yet, that plan or system may not match your own inner light, being and self. Therefore, if this proven plan or system does not work for you, when in the community, group or tribe, it affects your Trust in self. It makes you wrong. It makes you wrong rather than looking at the perspective that You Are Not Trusting Yourself.

So what if today, you looked at all the ways you can trust yourself. All the ways you can listen to what makes you feel joy, pleasure, self control, freedom and peace. And look at all the things that you can question your own trust. Is it really your trust in yourself or are you choosing to trust a belief and idea outside of yourself.

There is a place to fit into community and to have safety and security. There is also a way to listen and feel from within your own truth, your own power, your light. And when you do, it opens the gates to the beauty and wealth, of Self Love and Currency of Divine Truth, your own inner knowing, where all things move through you.

Busting Open the Beliefs of Yoga. Connecting to your true Source of Personal Power

The depth of connection we have through our bodies is profound, penetrating through ever aspect of how we choose to live and in every thought, action, movement and feeling. 

inner compass 2

Let’s bust open some myths or outdated beliefs here, about the practice of yoga. Practice, is a series of actions, disciplines that create shifts, and gives you a formula for growth and development. Where yoga has an exceptional plan for focus and discipline in practice, it’s method of connecting one’s spirit to it’s own innate inner knowing, which includes opening channels that connect the ground below and the heavens above is archaic, built on a philosophy that held others in power and control.

There is another way. It is the way of the Priestess

From a time when women, with her beautiful ability to surrender, receive and allow had access to Divine Wisdom for the prosperity and abundance of all. Before the darkness. When the light was a representation of individuality, fertility, expansion, and all the joys and pleasure this connection brought to the people. There was no one leader. There was no one to follow. What transpired was the unique self expression of people through play, arts, creativity, music, sex, dance, food from the land and community connection.

Yoga, in it’s actions, closes off the channel. As a woman leader, one of the Priestess with a Divine Channel, my energy and ability to connect, like my sisters, is my greatest asset. This ability to connect my energy source to the earth below and the heaven above flows through the Divine Channel that opens with my pubic bone tilted and held forward, my coccyx bone tilted back and sits bones extended left to right. This Diamond shape, is the channel and connection that allows for a free flowing source energy to move through me. It is a place of personal power.

What this relationship creates within the body is extraordinary. It holds the lumbar spine, the lower back in a neutral position which is an arch. This arch, the design is for the connection of spiritual energy, rich, fertile, creative, and self expressive to move through this channel. It is the spirit in action. It is YOU. It is how you create and express your unique self in this world.

The current model and teachings of yoga, has not acknowledged nor chooses to recognize this essential action step in opening the channel which connects one’s spirit to their inner knowing.

Yoga, in it’s practice and philosophy teaches to tuck the tailbone- which is a submissive position. It creates a domination. It has someone’s own sense of personal safety and security look toward outward teaching. And looking in at the naval or solar plexus, has someone giving up their power to something or someone other than themselves.

Let’s put this in perspective with the true Natural order of the Divine, the animal Kingdom which thrives through a food chain model. A jaguar does not tuck it’s tailbone. She stands strong in her center, present. The curves of her svelte body the epitome of strength and beauty. When this majestic beauty decides it’s time to take action and look at the world around her, she sits looking out, observing with clarity on her next steps, which are divinely guided by her intuition. In situations where she finds herself in trouble, after the experience, she shakes herself off. She is clear on her power. And, no where does she give it away.

The exquisite nature of our senses are to experience the richness and fullness of life. Sights, sounds, feel, touch, smells all bring greater joy and evoke the feeling of pleasure. If you are not experiencing pleasure, the opposite is pain, or no feeling connection apathy. Neither one produces a positive Flow state. It’s easy to become stuck and stagnant here.

Yoga has a philosophy to turn off your senses, not be attached to the feelings. My feelings as a Divine Being are a gift from Heaven and my compass- the compass of my heart, spirit and passion, which drive and move me forward. And, isn’t that the same thing they teach about Law of Attraction, get into the feelings? My senses are a map, directing me in the direction to go. With each piece of pleasure I receive through sight, sound, touch, feel and smell, the experience of it, I find peace, joy and happiness. I open, I connect, I feel and I love. I FLOW. I receive, I open, I give and I celebrate the richness that moves through my life.

This is the path, the channel and source of the 2nd chakra flow~ sensuality, joy and pleasure. Your deepest connection to pleasure. Sure their are false pleasures to get you out of pain, and that is for you to reconcile. Money, sex, food all travel through the 2nd chakra. These 3 connect us to the physical and a sense of true safety and security. When we get into right relationships with our flow, our Selves, they flow freely. Opening your channel, connecting to your inner knowing, reclaims your personal power, and sense of identity that only you can have, it is your unique genius through your senses, feelings, thoughts and emotions, which comes from a high vibe state of pleasure and feeling, individual to you. Your blueprint, your identity.

Money, Food, Sex. These are the areas people and society have a hard time identifying themselves, your own personal power, your own blueprint, your own identity without a group, tribal or other people’s beliefs, ideas, judgments and philosophies. Taking a stand for your own personal philosophy. Just as I choose to do here. Without your own identity and personal power, what do you think happens? You give it away to others. You give it to others and you receive what they give, their ideas, beliefs and philosophies. The energy of the 2nd chakra is giving and receiving and creative or destructive. What do you think happens when the channel and flow is closed? Pain or apathy sets in. What do you think happens when you don’t have a sense of identity or feeling of personal power? You feel weak, vulnerable, unworthy. Do you think the Jaguar ever feels that way or gives her power away.

The depth of connection we have through our bodies is profound, penetrating through ever aspect of how we choose to live and in every thought, action, movement and feeling.

Make no mistake the practice of yoga has helped me, as a guide and a tool, a practice of focus and discipline, where like the jaguar I thrive in the environment. I took matters into my own hands. I consistently apply my own philosophy, inner wisdom, strength and personal power. I consistently trust my inner knowing, I choose to act from a place of power with my intimate intelligent inner wisdom as a Priestess.

This is the way we create change.

We allow, we give way to each person to connect into their own inner wisdom. We guide lead, model and teach how to keep this flow, this connection through the 2nd chakra of sensuality and the significant values of personal power exemplified by the jaguar.

This is they way of the Priestess
