Chakra THREE Cleanse

While the first chakra is largely linked to our physical body, and our second chakra to our emotions, our third chakra is very much related to our thoughts, and how we relate to them.

When our third chakra is open and strong, we feel centered and comfortable in our own skin. We have a quiet confidence that we can accomplish what we need to, and that we can work through any obstacles that arise. We aren’t arrogant or controlling – in fact, when our third chakra is balanced we don’t feel a need to control everything. Owning our personal power is as much about knowing when to let go as to when to take charge. When we think we need to do everything ourselves, that others can’t possibly help, or that it all depends on us, we are in fact gripping in our third chakra, and this cuts us off from true power.

The path to a healthy third chakra is balance, and discovering a true sense of self-worthiness, that doesn’t require external validation, or ‘going it alone’. Learning to ask for help and knowing it is really O.K. to tap into your resources and ask for HELP!

"Let a man know his worth, and keep things under his feet."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tapping into our personal power is a way to integrate with the "power within," power of connecting with the forces of life. But for most of us, it is as much about letting go and accepting the flow of life as anything else. Then we can begin to accept what arises in our lives, and develop a quiet confidence that is based on allowing power to come through us, rather than trying to muscle through it on our own. As we explore the internal landscape of our solar plexus we will discover all the things that we hold on to and as we release the internal baggage we create space to fill up with the flow of life and the juiciness of the richness of the true essence of who we really are through our own truth as we claim our birth right.

"Let a man know his worth, and keep things under his feet."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
