10. Seed of Life – Solar Plexus Chakra
The seed of life is made up of seven interlocking circles. Six circles have divided from the central one. It is referred to as the Genesis Pattern in honor of the creation story in the book of Genesis. The seven heavenly “lamps” seen with the naked eye inspired the number seven as being sacred. Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn along with the Sun and Moon became known as the “Seven Sages.” The Romans created the Julian calendar in 46 BCE and named the seven days of the week for each of these seven sages. The Sun, being the largest, became the seventh day of rest or Sunday. Solar comes from the Roman word “sol.” The sun is the primary source of energy in our lives. It is also the center our solar system. Our solar plexus chakra reflects the energy of the sun as the center of our internal source of power.
Message: Power provides the ability to create, destroy and nurture. To be at peace with the concept of power is to know when to create, when to destroy and when to nurture or rest. You have the ability to choose. Be open to the power that is growing within you. Learn how to use this power wisely as you plant seeds for your future.
