There is no fear, confusion, or unease, when there is love, truth, communication, and flow. Just freedom to be, comfortably. Wouldn't you agree?
Yet, not everybody is capable of dealing with such blatant honesty. We have been so conditioned to communicate in riddles, that such vulnerability can feel challenging.
But there is strength in vulnerability. In fact, it is the greatest strength there is. Vulnerability is a source of power, always peaceful. It is like the steed of the peaceful warrior.
The solar plexus is one of the most important sources of energy in our entire being and its power distinguishes our presence in the cosmic dance.
When we connect to our personal truth and honour it, we are connecting to that power, hence it is called "empowerment." Empowerment does not mean to manipulate or control others, but to state one's truth, irrelevant of reaction or outcome. We surrender without expectation to the course of our destiny resulting from that truth. We thereby set ourselves free.
When we "honour thyself" and communicate transparently, the powerful connection of the solar plexus chakra with the throat chakra (which represents communication and surrender to divine will) stimulates the heart chakra located between them. The energy of unconditional universal love moves in all directions, grounding and expanding, creating a sense of connection, wholeness and self-satisfaction.
Where there is no sense of lack, there is no fear. All that remains is the shining Self.
To end, I would like to share a Ted talk by Brene Brown, who inspired me to be just my vulnerable self all those years ago, because I am enough, I value connection, and life is so much better when it is REAL. I trust you will enjoy it too.
