Root Chakra – Muladhara Chakra Pt 2

Root Chakra - Muladhara Chakra Pt 2

Root Chakra was now open, its contents spewing like a volcanic eruption directionless and intense. The Root Chakra seemed like a little shop of horrors, one by one bringing into my consciousness things I did not want to see. It appeared now that the contents of the Root Chakra had been unconsciously suppressed, each faculty layering up over time, strengthening its hold and thus making me its victim. Unknowingly I had been controlled like a puppet for years, dangled by a power so strong that if I had not awoken it could have easily controlled me for the rest of my life.

The Root Chakra is the boundary between animal consciousness and human consciousness. It is from this chakra that you see the transition from a sleep like state to an awakened state. Luckily for me I had been awoken by something and it was my time to embrace what I was being shown. One by one the qualities that I guess I had come to accept as normal were being shown to me in a very different light. I was being made to acknowledge them, delve deeper into there source, there triggers, there reasons and I was having to confront them head on. The physical symptoms of confronting a lot of the qualities that I had unconsciously come to rely on where exposing me to my pain-body. There were times of physical distress, nausea, headaches all of which were being caused by my mind bringing forth these traits. The traits for now I will keep personal to my own experience; but I will share with you the two sides. Some will be more stronger and some weaker. The key is to become conscious of them find balance in yourself and then to ensure they do not take you for a ride.

The traits are as follows each showing the dualistic principles that exist, one being the positive and the other negative.

Sins & Virtues | Secret Mirrors

As you can see these are the so called sins and virtues so often spoken of. They form the basis for a large majority of problems we see in society today. It is only when each one is brought to the light of awareness, understood, controlled and dissolved with consciousness can then the bursting Root chakra be brought back to rest. Control of each one will take time and patience and that is exactly what I was slowly learning to do. The key here was to know how to control each one, understand it before it tried to arise and banish it before it stuck its claws into me. It seems easy now when I look back especially as now I am the master of my mind; but while in the thick of it, it was a completely different story. Courage is what kept me going, I wanted to be free of how I was feeling and my guide was helping me keep faith. The journey was progressing; but somehow I knew there was going to be a light at the end of all this and that is what I kept myself fixated on.

Shiva and Shakti | The Balance of Life

Shiva And Shakti Inner Life of Unity

Shiva and Shakti are the two powers that symbolise, pure consciousness and pure energy respectively. Shiva and Shakti had both now introduced me to their presence and given me an everlasting glimpse of what they both had to offer. Shakti, had come at tremendous force when she had made herself known, but Shiva had been a little more calm in his approach. I guess this was all going to make more sense as I stepped forwards into learning more about these two fascinating principles.

Shakti had been dominating the left side of my so called energy system, while Shiva had remained more hidden on my right. Both these energy systems needed one another to create harmony and balance, I had never known about this so called imbalance previously, only was it now that it was all coming to together. Shakti or energy is power and creativity, which in life leads to the processes of action, movement, inertia and change. Shiva on the other hand is pure consciousness, omnipresent, stable and unchanging. Both Shiva and Shakti are actually dualistic representation of the same. They are different sides of the same coin, separated when we came into existence. These two aspects cannot exist without one another, only when they combine will life’s conscious journey really start to commence.

For me I guess shakti had been dominating me for most of my life, she had been trying to give me the power to move forwards, embrace change and put me into action. Unknown to me at the time was that I was unconscious and asleep, shiva had been dormant and therefore shakti’s efforts had gone untended. He was now awake, consciousness had been awoken, I was ready now for shakti to give me her command. Energy without consciousness, is aimless, unstructured and misdirected. No matter how much time and energy you put into whatever you desire, if your consciousness is not active, it will not materialise. Just like consciousness without energy, is un-constructive and lies dormant. Shakti in effect is a magical projection of your life story, which can only be projected once the screen of Shiva has become fully active.

I knew that my energy had always been strong and powerful, but now I had found that it had always been aimlessly directed. A new entity had now entered my life, consciousness. I guess who I had become had been based on an overpowering left sided energy system (ida). I now had to find a new balance, I had to understand more about consciousness (pingala). I found myself starting to become a new person, as if I was leaving a old me behind. What I had identified myself with could no longer gave me confirmation, Who Am I? was the question that kept stirring around in my head. If Shakti had made me who I was, and Shiva was now showing me another side, then was what I had known all along an illusion? Things really were starting to get unnerving, but I had to keep faith. Having come this far there really was no turning back, where would I go? All I knew was that something was protecting me and it was this feeling that gave me comfort and strength to keep moving forwards.

There is no coming to consciousness without pain
