The 6th Ray of “Devotion” governs this chakra. This chakra symbol connects us with the energy to “act” and is the seat of self-esteem and expressing our personal power. Our relationship to the world around us, and our beliefs about our place within it come from this the third of the seven chakras.
Self-honoring starts here. A healthy third chakra honors emotions, warmth, intellectual understanding, and self-confidence. A keen awareness of your personal power comes from this chakra. It is at this chakra that balance becomes possible through harmony between the upper three and lower three chakras.
Blocks in this chakra symbol cause fear of rejection, over sensitivity to criticism, the need to exert power over others, hot temper, demanding and blaming, judgmental attitudes, feelings of lack of recognition, aloofness, fear of something new, low energy, confusion over which direction to go, and low self-esteem. It is here we learn of self-empowerment, integrity and self-respect.
Health Issues: diabetes, hypoglycemia, gallstones, nervousness, low energy, muscle cramps, stomach problems, lumbar spine, liver disorders.
Is passive-aggressive manipulation of others something you do to get your way?
Do you feel like a victim?
Do you compensate from low self-esteem and shame based feelings by being overly responsible?
Can you follow your heart to break through blocks and fears?
Are you afraid of change?
What causes you to lose your power and why?
Do you maintain your integrity by following through on what you say?
Do you respect yourself and others too?
Transcendence of the unloving imprints of this chakra:
“Balance between intuition and intellect.”
