(Note: If you’ve not yet read Part 1 of this post, please read the previous post to bring you up-to-date.)
I’ve already explained how people are often imbalanced to one side of the chakras – toward more spirit – called Upper Chakra Dominant (UCD) – or more earth – called Lower Chakra Dominant (LCD).
Hopefully, you’ve identified where you are on the chakra spectrum – basically balanced, more UCD, or more LCD, because we’re going to look at how each of these groups need to work differently with the “Law Of Attraction.”
First of all, let me just point out that the LOA as it has been laid out in “The Secret” (and become popular in our culture) is geared toward LCD people. It assumes that you are well-grounded and physically able to manifest, and then simply guides you toward more upper chakra work in the form of visualization (6th chakra), intent (5th chakra) and belief (4th chakra).
So the shift into spiritual manifestation and abundance is fairly easy for LCD people – and “The Secret” is a fairly good recipe for them. Unfortunately, it’s a whole different, much harder journey for those who are Upper Chakra Dominant.
Picture the chakras as a pyramid – with the red first chakra creating a base and the violet/white seventh chakra creating the tip. At the very tippy-top, there is no more matter – only space all around. And at the bottom — the lowest, deepest bottom, there is no more space, only matter. Here, things are gravity-filled and heavy. And they move extremely slowly. While at the top, everything is light and free and moves at the speed of thought.
If you recall, the way that human energy manifests is by starting from the top of this pyramid with pure thought (7th chakra) and then moving it down through the steps of visualizing (6th chakra), setting clear intention and/or doing affirmations (5th), believing in it (4th), acting on it (3rd), creatively solving any problems that arise (2nd) and sticking to it until it manifests (1st).
Someone who is totally balanced can move through each one of these steps with ease. But someone who is either UCD or LCD must learn to open up the opposite (neglected) side of their bodily energy system.
For LCD folks, the “recipe” for making the “Law Of Attraction” work is to do the sort of things recommended in “The Secret” (upper chakra work). Unfortunately, the “recipe” does not work for UCD people. Making the LOA work for them is a whole different ballgame, a much harder one.
If you’re UCD, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but someone’s got to tell it to you straight – and it might as well be me, since I’ve been doing the hard work myself for several years now, and it has rocked my world (in a slow, steady, first chakra kind of way, of course).
You see, the realm of the upper chakras is a light, energy realm where things can change in an instant and miracles happen. This means that Lower Chakra Dominant people can change their reality almost instantaneously. All they have to do is change their thoughts, words and beliefs.
For UCD folks, the realm that needs to be opened is the dense, lower world. It’s like they’re a tree with many branches and leaves, but no roots. Imagine having to plant a full-grown tree. It wouldn’t be easy, would it. You’d have to dig a huge whole for the tree to fit into. This is a perfect analogy for the kind of work that UCD people need to undertake.
They must do strong, consistent physical work to dig that hole. They can’t just change their thoughts or do energy work. Yes, the lower chakras are energy, so part of the work can be done on the energetic level, but eventually, UCD people must come into their bodies.
My “Boost Your First Chakra For Grounding & Prosperity” Audio Course explains the main reasons why UCD people have not fully come into their bodies, but that doesn’t really matter as much as HOW they can start doing it.
My First Chakra Audio course is also available as an ebook on Amazon, and it addresses all these ways of shifting one’s energy downward to become more grounded and prosperous.
The main thing I want to get across here is that the LOA as it is espoused in our culture is not “one size fits all.” For several years, I felt like a failure because upper chakra techniques like those recommended in ‘The Secret” didn’t work for me, and I’m hearing the same thing from many of my clients. If you, too, are a UCD person, I simply hope that this post will shed a unique light on your situation and guide you toward the grounding, security and abundance you desire.
Just remember to roll up your sleeves first. It’s going to take some consistent, hard work.
