Jaguar

2_Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is where we balance our creative and sexual power with emotions around fear, pain and trauma. Jaguar, the archetype of the peaceful warrior, inspires us to face the fear that stalks us by moving through it with open eyes. Our sacral chakra often holds memories and reactions stored in our Mammalian (Limbic) brain that controls our emotions. Fear, anger and confusion can be triggered by the emotional responses we are holding.

The dynamic of predator-prey places jaguars at the top of their food chain, hunting only to survive. They teach us to use our power wisely and selectively. Humans are classified as super predators, yet our fear of being preyed upon continues to trigger the fight-or-flight response.

This response helps us perform under pressure or when dealing with physical danger. If our fight-or-flight response is triggered by repressed emotions and memories, it can lead to chronic stress and anxiety.

Since jaguars are nocturnal, they encourage us to go into the dark places where our fear resides to see that the threat is no longer present. As we calm ourselves and breathe, we can begin to receive insights on how to reclaim our power and bring balance back into our life.

Message: Jaguar is reminding us to face what frightens us. By bringing these fears forward and out of theshadows, we can see them for what they are and move forward. Most of the time they are unresolvedwounds from childhood, or stories we have taken on over time or from our ancestors. Do what we can toresolve our fears and see the lessons we have learned because of them. These lessons will becomesources of wisdom and strength. Begin to see that our true power is to be in balance and at peace withinourself and our world.

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” – Alice Walker
