I'm not sure about you, but the first thing that comes to mind for me when I think of something that is strong and secure, I think of a tree.
I suppose a mountain could work, too
But I think of a tree.
Like a Redwood.
Tall, regal, not going anywhere no matter how hard you push.
And that's what we'll be emulating today my friend.
A tall Redwood that doesn't sway with the changing times.
Although, we wont be doing any tree poses, we will be balancing, building our strength so we can stand firm through the storms.
Did you wonder what Chakra today might be incorporating?
The third, of course. The center of power in the body. Manipura, the Lustrious Gem, my all time favorite one. The element that correlates with Manipura, the Solar Plexus Chakra, is Fire (I'm an Aries. Of course I'd love it), and the color is yellow.
A quote from Anodea Judith, the authority behind chakras: "Power begins with what is. Earth, as matter, is the container, movement is the means. Our bodies are the vehicle, our emotions its fuel, making the third chakra the engine...Earth and water anchor us in reality, forming the container that allows the alchemical fire to burn bright and hot. They are the crucible of transformation."
The first three chakras. This is how we will root and how we will rise.
I am Centered, Secure, and Strong
