Chakra +/-: 6th
Today we continue our considerations of the positive and negative applications of the energies of each chakra.
Each chakra has inherently a Grace, which causes us to have a Gift to give ourselves and others. Both the Grace and the Gift of each chakra can be applied positively or negatively.
The Grace of the Indigo Brow Chakra is Intuition.
The Gift of the Indigo Brow Chakra is Guidance.
Here, in alphabetical order, are the negative possibilities connected to Intuition and Guidance.
Bitter, Cold-hearted, Cynical, Detached from the world, Fears the unknown, Harsh, Intellectual to a fault, Lacking concentration, Lacking imagination, Mean, Possibly phobic, Sad, Tense, Tight, Unfeeling, Ungracious
Remember, just like with all positives and negatives, there are two major options: the “negative,” passive thing not to do is resist. And the “positive” active thing is to embrace the opposites.
Let’s pick one: Cynical.
Sure, you can use cynicism as a form of resistance to Intuition — how many of us deny that we even hear guidance for our lives from within, let alone follow it? Or, God forbid, encourage a friend to follow their own intuition?
And you can use cynicism as a form of embrace of Intuition — deciding to test your own lack of faith by acting on your guidance. Cynicism as laboratory, if you will.
Or, how about Mean?
You are perfectly capable of using meanness as a form of resistance to guidance — being dismissive or sarcastic with someone who is in the delicate process of finding their way in life.
You may also use meanness as a form of embracing guidance — this is a sort attempt at prophylaxis, protection from disappointment. It’s a worst-case-scenario approach.
Have a gander at the list with a mind intent on self-evaluation. You know where you’re resisting, Beloved, and you know where you’re embracing. Happy with them? Great. If not, use the chakra color itself on either extreme within you to create the change you want to see.
Be the blessing.
Tomorrow we’ll continue with the positives of the seventh violet crown chakra. Blessèd Equinox!
