Manipura



Located at the center of the body it is the place where physical energy is distributed. It is the center for unrefined emotions and personal power.  It is the center that give us the sense of complete satisfaction and contentment.  Our creativity is fueled by our power of will and is blocked by shame.


------------------------------------------
So a few post back I started documenting my journey to a cleansing my Chakras, it got a little too personal for my liking and so I didn't post the others. But after having a conversation with a friend (*winks*) I thought well maybe it's a good idea to share my journey so others can be encouraged to do the same. 


You can find my find how I cleared my first two chakras here and here


This one was particularly hard for so many reasons but mainly because I don't want to look weak. I've worked hard to work through the issues I had and admitting to being ashamed of something spit in the face of all that. But alas if I'm to reach a greater plain of wisdom I have to own up to all of it.  My shame deals with my father, Yes that mystery man I don't talk to, talk about and at this point in my life doesn't really exist. 


Last year when I started this journey my uncle called to tell me his brother's wife passed away. I thought oh that's sad but why is he telling me I don't know this man (notice I did  not call him my uncle).  After the funeral my uncle revealed to me a part of me that I believed I locked deep away, the need to know more about THAT side of my family. Not necessarily about my dad because I've dealt with my feelings about him as a person but the tons of cousins I now know I have.  I spoke with my uncle for 2hrs and my mind was blown away by how awesome my cousins are (not as awesome as my sisters and I but yeah you know!). I guess in my mind because they were Davenports and not US so they were probably just as trifling as their parents and my father, but that's not the case at all. 


So though I have moved on and forgiven my father and I know there is no way for me to change the past, I can look towards the future and be happy. Happy knowing there is some good attached to our family name and it is reflected in the youth. As for the message my uncle came back with from my father, *shrugs*All the niceness is long overdue it's his burden to bear and though forgiven...well you know the rest.  Here's to connecting with some of my relatives this summer, hopefully we can make this happen.
