When we talk about our Chakra system we tend to think in terms of open or blocked energy. Today I want to talk to you instead about your thoughts and feelings.
I like to think of thoughts as the root cause of your feelings and your feelings as the indicators of your alignment with your higher self.
Let me explain.
Imagine if you will that a thought can, will, or does trigger a feeling. This idea may be new to you. But if you sit with it for a while you will come to understand, feelings are a direct result of the thoughts we are having. I know that you may not realize that you are experiencing them this way because often thoughts and feelings seem to happen simultaneously.
First let’s understand that we are having somewhere around 70-80,000 thoughts a day. Most of which are subconscious repeated programing that operates covertly in the back of your mind.
You may have had a thought that you were somehow “not enough” and as a result concluded that because you were not enough you would never be able to achieve what you see others achieving.
Maybe the first time you thought it you felt sad, maybe the second time you felt sad and lonely, and maybe the third time you felt sad and lonely, then became angry. This thought has now become a belief that makes you feel sad, lonely, and angry.
Any thought, having been thought on more than one occasion begins to gain momentum. Thoughts with momentum over time become beliefs. A belief is just something you have continued to think.
Like anything else you repeat over time it becomes part of your subconscious programing. Which plays over and over again like a broken record in the background of your mind.
Let’s take the example of learning to drive a car. At first you are hyper aware of your surroundings and super conscious of every step you take to start the car, putting it into gear, and driving. But after some time has passed and you gain more and more experience, you begin to do these things automatically. You can virtually drive your car without much thought at all.
How is this possible? You have repeatedly thought the same thoughts and done this long enough to store the exact formula for starting and driving your car into your subconscious. It has become part of your automatic programing. Any feelings you had are also stored.
When a new event takes place that activates an original thought, the feelings that are associated with the thought come with it automatically too. Perhaps making you believe that the feeling was first or that they happened simultaneously.
Let’s go back to the idea that thoughts are the root cause of your feelings and your feelings as the indicators of your alignment with you higher self. You have a thought that may bring up a feeling. Your feelings then are the indicator of your alignment with your higher self (or your god self, your inner being, your soul etc.).
You have a thought that may bring up a feeling. Your feelings then are the indicator of your alignment with your higher self (or your god self, your inner being, your soul etc.).
These feelings are letting you know if you are in alignment with how your inner being or soul is seeing or feeling about the same thing that you are currently thinking about. If you feel good, you are in alignment with that larger part of yourself. If you are feeling bad, you are out of alignment with your higher self.
What I would like you to notice is that your Chakra system (or your body) is having a visceral experience of feeling good (being in alignment) or feeling bad (being out of alignment).
When you think a thought that is out of alignment with your god self or soul, you will feel a tightening in your body. It might be in your throat, your chest, or your abdomen. You might feel a shrinking of your energy in general, which feels bad.
When you think a thought that is in alignment with your inner being or higher self, you will feel an expansion, which feels good.
In this way I like to think of your Chakra system as an onboard GPS. It’s your guidance system that lets you know when you are in or out of alignment. Which offers you the opportunity to change your thoughts to be more in alignment.
