I had the opportunity to sub a spiritual flow class at the Yoga studio last weekend and I themed my class around this chakra. As I encouraged the Yogi's to move through the postures I asked them to connect with the ebb and flow of emotions that were present within their bodies. Each emotion that we experience flows into the next. Emotions are constantly in a flow state. According to the research of Judith, "Emotions (from the Latin movers 'to move' and e meaning 'out') promote the evolution of consciousness through the body."
In this flow state we experience the embodiment of the second chakra according to the work of Judith, "We long to unite, to overcome our separateness, to reach out and grow. These are all aspects of consciousness at the second chakra- all of which induce change....Without change, there is no growth, no movement, and no life. Consciousness thrives on change."
How would your life move in a more fluid manner if you adopted the energy of the second chakra? What would you be willing to accomplish? Can you unite with the energy of change and emerge transformed?
The energy of our sexuality is also contained within this chakra. Judith goes onto say that our sexuality is a sacred ritual union, "An expansive movement of life force, it is the dance that balances, restores, renews, reproduces. It is the production ground of all new life- and in that sense- of the future." She goes onto elaborate that in our culture we tend to repress or exploit this natural pleasure. As we tap into the energy of this chakra, we also begin to notice our relationship to our own sexuality.
As Judith concludes her research on sexuality, she speaks of nurturance. "Nurturance is the final summation of sexuality and a fundamental need of the body, the mind and the soul. Nurturance means caring for, feeding with energy, love and touch." Her work offers a museum of exploration within the constructs of our lives.
We were cosmically designed to feel, to change, to express, to experience, and to nurture. We were designed to expand and grow, to change and evolve, to tenderly touch and experience the sweetness of life. Our fears challenge us to change and move. Our belief systems become the critical moment- we vulnerably lean into this chakra and begin a lifelong dialogue. This dialogue requests that change be ever present and that we would move like water, every flowing towards the sweetness of life.
It is in this chakra that we experience guilt. Guilt over our growth periods. Guilt that we have changed. Guilt over our sexuality. Guilt over experiencing pleasure. As we do our personal work and inhabit this chakra we are able to own our creativity, sexuality, and the fluidity of our lives. At the end of the day, may we affirm, " I am enough."
