37. Awareness of Self – Sacral Chakra – Portal of Life
The self, releases from the dark womb of its mother to travel through the portal of life, emerging into the world of light. In that moment, when the first breath is drawn, the soul is ignited and the awareness of self begins. This immediate awareness of separation from the warm watery world of the womb triggers the self to survive. Awareness of self rapidly develops within the first seven years of life. It is during this time that the child may still be aware of their soul. But the human desire to thrive and feel loved often over shadows the desire of the soul. As a child becomes aware of themselves as humans, they become less aware of themselves as a soul. The self separates its self from its soul.
Message: Your sense of self is changing as you awaken to the reality that you are a soul within a human body. This awareness brings responsibilities as you realize that your soul chose this lifetime with an intention. You may have disconnected from your souls purpose for reasons that are hidden in your shadows. Look into your shadows and see the insights your soul holds. Do not attach your self to outcomes. Judgment of yourself or of others further separates you from your self. The light and dark exists in perfect harmony. Embrace who you are becoming
“This meeting with oneself is, at first, the meeting with one’s own shadow. The shadow is a tight passage, a narrow door, whose painful constriction no one is spared who goes down to the deep well. But one must learn to know oneself in order to know who one is. For what comes after the door is, surprisingly enough, a boundless expanse full of unprecedented uncertainty, with apparently no inside and no outside, no above and no below, no here and no there, no mine and no thine, no good and no bad. It is the world of water…..where I am indivisibly this and that; where I experience the other in myself and the other-than-myself experiences me…” – Carl G. Jung
