If there was a week to process energies and experiences from your solar plexus, last week was a great one!! With all of the wild, emotional flow of pressure that has been washing over us as of late, it is difficult to resist the awakening of self which arises from the ashes of burning down. The rain, the water working to cleanse us from crown to toe, falling from the sky as if to beg us to release and surrender to the process of washing off the veils of illusion we have wrapped ourselves in for years and even centuries. It is a habit to fight with the flow and resist what feels uncomfortable, because let’s be honest…I don’t ever see anyone throwing parties to celebrate discomfort. The fight is a chance to hold onto what we have known, the stories of pain that we try to somehow, hide or skirt around, however this is really the great illusion as we are not meant to simply hide from growth. This is not to say that we don’t pack it deep down and try to convince ourselves that it isn’t there and make ourselves believe that we have conquered the pain, because that does happen for some of us at different times. The mind will put up different protectors to guard the heart from having to experience pain, somehow believing that we are not capable, or worth, or strong enough to bare it. This is the great deception we face within our own hearts and where we must choose to allow our heart’s truth to speak aloud and move the energy of emotion.
The Solar Plexus is located in the center of the body between the breast bone and the belly button. In the 7 Chakra system it is known as the third Chakra which holds a golden yellow color and resonates to your central core system. This energy contains the un-disputable truth of who you are at your core and how you will stand in that truth with your actions, stories, will of your own and upon others. This is a vast space of energy which allows you to expand and contract out into the world around you through selfhood, personal identity, power and individuality. It is the part of you that exists in duality; seeing the world as “us and them” or “myself and others”. Duality holds a purpose for being human upon this earth even as the overall consciousness is now beginning to pull away from this kind of thought or existence in separateness. What the emotion can do for you is open the sense of separateness in order for you to gain a clear picture of your own personal identity in life as well as your inner personal power. When you are processing emotions about what others have done to you or what you have done to others you are clearing out those things that separate you and creating a new space for you to connect through yourself with others, maybe even seeing them as you. This challenges the very core of duality in which you learned in childhood.
Solar Plexus, being so vast, also reaches into the heart space causing the two energies to move and flow together. Often times emotional uprisings can stem from pain we experience from both ourselves and others, where we feel the separation and the yearning for unity at the same time. If you are working with the central energy you may find yourself working to clearly see your own integrity in the choices you make, or asking if you are truly worthy of the life you desire. In this space, the force that will work against you is the ego mind which will go to great lengths to convince you of many reason why you should hide from the truth and especially why you are not worth of love. Emotion can be used by your ego to deceive your heart into feeling as if the pain your feel will destroy others, or your life. There is no doubt that certain choices outside of integrity can have an effect on others, however it remains important for you to stay with your heart and the effect it has for you. Know that freedom of choice is always yours and you get to decide to be stagnant or continue moving forward.
When we are moving energies big energies physically and ethereally, it can be easy to get caught up in the emotion. See this pattern and invite your consciousness to see it, thank it, and let it pass so that you can find the peace of moving from duality to unity. You are deserving of this kind of love…embrace it.
