I I got the word today that my work contract would be extended for the rest of the year. Quite a relief, since there was a real possibility that I would be laid off next week. Considering I was laid off the first day of the last of these challenges I took, the possibility of getting laid off again while doing my second seemed a real fear.
Today I channeled the mantra with the intent that it work on “whatever issue, energy system, or physical organ would be most appropriate to work on now.”
I sat in a cross-legged position, closed my eyes, had a vision of trees, and the next thing I knew, I was feeling groggy and half-awake.
I had fallen completely asleep almost instantly. Embarrassing.
I tried again and felt awareness pulled deep into my manipura or solar plexus chakra. I could feel waves of consciousness move upward from the solar plexus to my crown. This went on for a while, and I then felt awareness drawn to my vishuddi or throat chakra. I got a sense of pressure there and felt like I was being drawn deeply within. My sense is that the issue involved expressing anger, and the blocks I have against open shows of temper. As I went deeper within the throat I could feel how a lot of the irritation I’ve experienced there had built up over not expressing anger when appropriate.
