Do you remember when you got awarded at school and you were so glad that your “enemies” were jealous? Or when you got promoted and you called your mom to announce it to her cos she never believed that you would make it there on the first place? The fact that you don’t want to break up cos your friends will consider you a fail since he’s successful and handsome? The biggest question here is, the things you do in life, is it for boosting your ego for you as a person or for showing off to others? This kind of behavior usually shows up when your ego is hurt, when people don’t consider you good enough to accomplish stuff in life. Yet you are there to fight and do your best. You have nothing to prove to no one except yourself. The high standards should be yours not made by other people. Don’t let others to pull you into their game and test you if you can make it. The main reason of your stress has to do with all these.
You want to get out of this situation though but you wonder how. It’s time to work on your solar plexus and your sacral chakra. It’s time to work on your ego and your emotions, on how these two are entangled. Go back to your childhood and see what happened there. Did this has to do with your parents, school or friends? What exactly happened? Keep in mind that there are usually words that trigger this reaction. For example if your friends used to call you “worm”, every time you hear this word, you feel uneasy cos it brings up the specific memory. There are though moments that you consciously blocked out, you never wanted to remember that this happened. So instead you replaced them with new ones. To get through your emotional blockage, it needs you to revise your childhood again and again. Yellow clothes and accessories will help you with the solar plexus energies and your healing process!
When it was the last time you did something crazy? Not for someone else but for you. A day when you rushed to get a plane for Paris, a cold morning when you rolled on the snow with your dog or a moment when you opened your window and screamed that you loved the whole world. You usually try to find a partner in crime but you won’t do it by yourself. Are you afraid that you won’t be accepted by others? Are you afraid of people mocking at you? Though when you are with your boyfriend, family or best friend, you will do it cos everyone does. If your memories of having fun always include others, then what happens if someone takes these memories away? You feel so alone, you feel that you can’t have fun unless you are around other people.
Make a monthly challenge diary with fun activities, you have no idea how good you will feel after accomplishing the task. You love sharing those moments though, right? Call your friends, tell them all the amazing stuff you did. Do you remember how you felt accepted when you did similar stuff with them? Now you will feel respected cos they will go “wow” with your experiences. The most important here, do you know what you really accomplished? You worked on your solar plexus, you worked on your insecurities and doubts, if you actually can do stuff by yourself. Feel proud of yourself and you will see how your indecisiveness will just flee!
This morning while I was reading the news, I stumbled upon articles about recycling, nature but something didn’t sound right to me. So I decided to read one of the articles more carefully, the words that kept popping were “have to”, “must” “should” so right away I felt obliged. Really? If me, you and everyone cares about the nature, is it out of obligation or out of love? It’s not about being aware of the global problems, it’s not about the solutions either since eventually something has to be done so as this planet will be safe. It’s about how all this is our consciousness already and we have to remember. It’s our duty to take care this planet but out of love. Then fear mongering starts as how earth is about to fall apart and how we all have to protect it. So till now, solar plexus and root chakra are involved. Where is the heart chakra?
Where is the compassion? Where is the love? Where is the caring nature of humans? Do you remember how it is to be one the animals, with the trees, with the oceans? If you close your eyes, can you feel earth’s frequencies? You were never in the position to decide if you had to be an earth guardian. It was the same as when you were eating and sleeping. When you start considering something natural an obligation, it’s when you know that you start breaking off its consciousness. I won’t get in the blame game, who’s fault is it. I will hold your hand and walk with you barefoot in the forest. I will sit next to you while listening to the ocean’s waves. I love you, do you?
You call your friend after a long time, you have that girly talk and out of nowhere she tells you about that cute guy she started dating. Your questions seem to have sincere interest about the guy but deep inside you, you feel different, you just know right away that he’s not the right guy for her. She’s excited while she’s speaking to you about him, first time she didn’t ask you extensively if you met any guy too. While you try to digest all that, she proposes to you to get out all together so as you to meet him. A couple days later, you get out, she has that sparkling bright smile, he keeps hugging her and looking at her deep in the eyes. You just sip your drink annoyed giving fake smiles. Now you know that you definitely don’t like him.
Don’t let your ego interfere, this is the big mistake here. Your friend just found a guy and she will date him for some time. You are afraid that you will lose her or that you won’t talk to her that much as you used to. Isn’t that egotistical from your own side? She has a life and you have one too. Focus on yourself, be happy for your friend and do your own things. You may spent almost every Friday with her but now she needs to make some space in her heart for someone else. Don’t get this wrong, she won’t forget you, she just opened a new chapter in her life. Don’t forget that there so many people out there who would love to hang around with you. Why don’t you give them a chance?
Your dream came true, the man you are in love with makes love to you, the relaxing music, the dazzling candles, the romantic atmosphere and the question that pops “Baby, do you surrender to me?”. The moment is so intense, you reply right away “yes, I do” with a seductive voice as the rest of the night keeps being beautifully busy. The next morning you get up, you make breakfast for both of you but there is something that bothers you since last night. Do you feel the internal fight of your sacral and solar plexus? What actually happened last night?
Your stimulated sacral gave a reply to the question faster than your solar plexus. Ego versus emotions then and here we go with you not looking at him in the eyes while enjoying your first breakfast together. Work on your solar plexus a bit and ask yourself with honesty “Have I ever surrendered to myself before I surrender to anyone else?”. If you feel your throat chakra blocking the answer, take a deep breath and exhale slowly, feeling the energies clearing your throat. The blockage comes from the fact that you don’t want to admit that it’s real, you surrendered to someone else before surrendering to your own Self. Though why does surrender means in the end?
Surrender means to let your Ego down and all the shields you have for other people but mostly for yourself. All these emotional blockages, fears, everything is locked in your solar plexus. The fear that you will let everything out will make you vulnerable. The way you felt last night with your man, fragile but you would never admit it to yourself cos after this you will feel that you need someone to protect you. Keep in mind that if you don’t know how to be the guardian of your self, you will eventually depend on other people. You have to teach yourself how to embrace that vulnerable side, love yourself for who you are!
