This week is all about watching our judgment towards ourselves and mostly others.
Last week was all about Chesed and having mercy for everyone.
Gevurah is all about Judgment. Chesed gives to a fault. While Chesed is giving, Gevurah is a bit more selfish. However they both need each other in order to survive and create balance.
The second week of the seven weeks of the Omer corresponds to the channel for judgment, discipline and strength in the Universe.
This week's energy is attached to Issac the Patriarch.
During this week you have an incredible opportunity to work on your judgment of yourself, of others and situations which is blocking you from your own spiritual freedom and growth.
It's so easy for all of us to criticize, place judgment and even blame others for things that are happening in our lives. This week the energy that is drawn down is allowing us to open our heart and mind and realize that we are responsible for our own story, our own life, our own journey. There is no one to blame. From experience, I know, it's easy to become a victim and blame others for what "happened" to us, but that is only creating more negative energy in our lives. We have to be strong enough to sit outside the box, look inside and realize that we are not victims in our own movie. We have to replace that negative victim mentality with an awareness of understanding that nothing happens "to" us. We create our own journey by the choices we make. These choices we could have made 10 years ago but just like cause and effect, whatever choice we make, there is a ripple effect not only in our journey but towards the Universe as well. We have to transform ourselves from having the victim mentality to taking responsibility for our own actions.
This week realize that judging others is negative. When you catch yourself gossiping about your co-worker, lover, friend or family member, stop, think about why you are gossiping about that person, and realize that person is a reflection of yourself. Whatever you are saying about them, is exactly what is wrong with you. Hard to swallow but it's the truth your ego is hiding from you. This week instead of freaking out that someone is trying to take your job, clients, friends, boyfriend, wife, realize that you don't really know this person. You don't. You can't judge someone without having truly walked a mile in their shoes. Enough with the judgment card! Sometimes your own partner, family or best friend can hide a pain they are going through. You don't always know everything. So think about that before placing judgment or gossiping. Who cares that they are from a different religion? Who cares that they are in love with the same sex? Who cares that they wear a mini skirt?! Who cares that they love Justin Bieber?!! Instead transform that energy in asking yourself, why do you care? This person is not the creator of your story. Why not concentrate on your own life, your own challenges and create a happy ending for yourself?
This week's chakra is still connected to last week's chakra: Throat chakra.
Makes perfect sense because when we gossip about others, we block our throat chakra, which means we have trouble expressing ourselves, being creative, sinus issues, speaking up and speaking the truth.
So make sure this week you are honest with yourself and speak the truth.
A friend comes to you with gossip? Tell them you rather talk about something more positive. And leave it at that!
Three things to work on this week:
1. Release your victim mentality and replace it with self-responsibilty.
2. Replace gossip with loving words.
3. Let go of the negativity that is keeping you stuck.
