In the past 4 weeks of the 7 weeks of Spirituality we have dealt with the energies of: Mercy, Judgment, Beauty and Victory. Now this week it's all about Majesty.
Karen Berg explains to us this week that the energy is about the ability to transform judgment into loving-kindness. She explains how this week our work is to transform all the uncomfortable, difficult moments that we come up against into moments of loving-kindness and realignment with our soul. When we learn how to have harmony within ourselves and peace and contentment with life, we can become a greater force of kindness in this world. Loved when she explained that sometimes we are so busy beating ourselves up in the darkness that we forget we are a spark of Divine Light.
Karen made huge sense regarding the energy of transformation when she said that the greatest amount of positivity will always come from the negative side. Rabbi Akiva, one of the purest souls to ever walk the earth, came from the seed of Cain who was known for both envy and murder. The deepest and most profound transformation cannot come from someone who is born of goodness or has done only good things all his life. To become a soul like Rabbi Akiva, we have to work hard for it on the spiritual path, and in order to work for it, we need to be certain that at our very core, our essence is pure Light.
This all means to me that this week we have a huge portal of energy to create transformation in our lives. But with that comes situations being exposed that we may not like but it's the light giving us guidance in what it is we need to transform and correct.
Hod is also connected to the energy of Humility. So this week not only are we making transformation happen but the fuel behind last week's energy of Victory is humility. Transformation can't occur without the fuel of humility.
Humility is the silent partner of endurance. Its strength is in its silence. Humility should not be confused with weakness and lack of self-esteem. Humility is an acknowledgement to the light of the creator, to Divine Source. It's about acknowledging that your strengths and talents come from a higher place, gives you the power to endure far beyond your own perceived capacity.
When you are so selfish and just into yourself and all about yourself, your cup is full therefore you are not allowing any room for growth or manifestations to occur. When you humble yourself and realize it's not all about you in this world and it's about helping others, animals and the earth, you then empty your cup and allow for more to come in. Humility is the key to reaching beyond yourself, the key to creating a life without any limitations. Humility is the key to finding out who you truly are.
If you ever meet someone who you think is a goody two shoes, don't compare or judge them. Just know that in order for them to have had a huge transformation in their life, they came from a very dark place. But if you meet someone who thinks they are perfect, don't apply judgment either, just send them light because if they would apply humility they would know they wouldn't be in a better place had they not been in a dark alley.
The chakra connected to this week's energy of humility and transformation is again our Solar Plexus.
We know from last's week post that the solar plexus is connected to our confidence area. When this area is blocked we suffer from low self-esteem and have a lot of fear behind everything.
The solar plexus is about our identity and inner true self. So make sure to work on meditating and directing the energy to uplift your solar plexus. When it's balanced and cleared you will feel empowered and strong.
There is so much energy this week between the Full Moon and the energy of transformation and humility that we must truly see all of this as a gift. We have the ability to take whatever situation we are stressed about and turn it over by taking responsibility for our thoughts, intentions and actions. We have the power to truly transform everything in our lives by knowing we have the choice to create a better situation by acknowledging where this power truly comes from. We are not alone in this journey. We have an amazing universe that is attached to so many angels, beings, spirit guides and divine source that lives within us and around us everyday.
We have to work hard in learning to truly help others and go out of our way to ask our friends, family, loved ones and strangers how they are doing. And truly stretch yourself and ask "How can I be of service to you?" and by doing one act of kindness you are creating a ripple of effect throughout this one person, community and world.
I truly and humbly wish you all a beautiful week filled with lots of growth and humility. Remember you are not alone and you have others like myself here to help you on your new journey. We are all connected from the same spark of energy! I love you!
Week 5 is over on Saturday at sundown.
