This week’s post is going to give you the best F-Word for balancing your third chakra, the one that resides in your solar plexus. It’s a masculine chakra and it’s characterized by the element of fire. The archetype for the core chakra is the warrior, but the go-getter and the confident celebrity are good descriptors as well.
The third chakra is about focus, fire and fame. When in full force, it aims at it’s target and hits the bulls eye. It tends to be big, bold and loud. In other words, it comes on strong.
Clearly, there are many different F-Words for this chakra. A few are fire, focus, fierce, force and fame. But the one I have chosen as the most representative and best for balancing this chakra is FEARLESSNESS.
Nothing lights up the solar plexus like facing your fears head on. Your core chakra is all about courage and stepping into action, especially when it scares the sh&% out of you!
I find that many people today – especially women — need a stronger third chakra. Ironically, we are considered the “me generation,” and our western culture is based on independence (both of which are third chakra qualities), and yet true courage and autonomy from the inside-out are rare things to see.
The reason that women so often need third chakra energy is because we have such a natural propensity to be in our heart chakra (a feminine energy center) and this makes us not want to step into our fire for fear of hurting another.
Additionally, we are typically socialized differently than boys. We’re told to be nice and not angry, while a little boy may be actually encouraged to go the other way (into the fire). So, you can also imagine, that men can have more of a challenge fully surrendering into their heart chakra. But that’ll be covered in next week’s post…
In any case, the best way to fire up your fire chakra is to 1) Take Action and 2) Take Action especially when you’re afraid.
Here’s the sad irony about stepping into your third chakra. If you have a weak third chakra, you have a tendency to not want to take action, especially when you’re feeling afraid or intimidated. Yet, taking action is exactly how you build third chakra energy in your personal energy field!
It’s like that old adage, you need a resume to get a job, but you need a job to get a resume. What’s a person to do?
Well, the analogy isn’t really spot on, because with third chakra energy, there is nobody outside of you telling you that you can or can’t have it! Isn’t that great? There’s no employee who may or may not hire you. With your core chakra, you are in total control. You just need to motivate yourself to take action — bold action — every day! And if you make it more important, then you WILL.
So make it important. Make it your habit to be fearless and you will grow your solar plexus power in an authentic, organic way. And as you do so, many fears will fall away. You feel bigger, bolder and more confident.
When I first thought of making my Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™, I was pretty scared of the size and scope of the idea. So, I created my Third Chakra Booster Tattoo first. I knew it would give me the courage, confidence and motivation to create the rest of the tattoos and to set up the entire business. And since you’re on my blog, you can see that it worked. My Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos have now been worn in nearly 30 different countries of the world!!
So, here’s to you expanding YOUR personal power with the F-word for your third chakra – FEARLESSNESS!
What brave new thing can you do today?
