Today was was my second day channeling the mantra’s consciousness pattern into “the issue that most prevents me from using magic effectively.”  My focus was once again drawn into my belly. I felt a point of nervousness there and stayed with that for some time. The nervousness seemed to transform into a filament of anxiety which curled up the bottom of the belly through my spine and into my head. I felt the intensity of the fear diminish slightly and then I was back in my belly and the cycle repeated itself. 

After that, I felt awareness drawn into the core of my second chakra – not the belly, the chakra itself. It seemed to pulse a bit and, I think, its energetic harmonized with the heart chakra. Then I was back at my belly for a long while in silence, and when I got up, 41 minutes had passed.
