True Balance: Chapter 3
I found this picture to be representative current relationship with this chakra. There is yellow, but where exactly is it, and what exactly is it? To me, it feels like a blind spot.
Working through Chapter 3: Balanced Sovereighnty with the True Balance group.
I couldn't really connect with this chapter. When I took the quiz, not many of the questions were issues with me. When I looked at the suggestions at the end of the chapter, I wouldn't even bother doing those as exercise because that is already how I live my life. This idea of relinquishing power... to whom, may I ask would you do this? I wouldn't. I don't. I have no issues setting boundries and saying no. I don't think I need to learn how to do that, but on the other hand I may need to consider re-thinking boundries and considering saying yes.
I found it a little unfortunate that there was little information on if this chakra is over sensitive (p 90 'Too much of a good thing') and no suggestions on what to do if it is. I suppose it could just be the opposite of any other suggestions.
Because I felt at a little bit of a loss with this one I decided to do a very quick word associating a la Unconscious Mutterings with the words associated with this chapter. I think I may continue to do this throughout the book, maybe before reading and after reading each chapter.
Focus - circle
Commitment - the movie about a band
Boundries - Yes, have those
Authority - not interested
Co-operation - the best!
Intergrity - Essential
Choice - most important of all
Decision - can be tough
Discipline - sometimes
Courage - The Lion (Wizard of Oz)
Faith - in what/whom?
Intention - Great to have
Willingness - pulling teeth, resistance
Peace - Ideal
Automony - okay
