Welcome to day 26 of the 30/30 Meditation Program! Today we will focus on the energy center located near your core/navel. It is associated with your personality, identity and ego, as well as willpower and the ability to bring about change and growth. When we are balanced in this area, we feel unique, valued, confident and energetic. People respond well to us and respect us, sensing our power and strength. When we are blocked in this area we tend to try to manipulate (or be manipulated by) others, we may lack sensitivity to others, become judgmental, perfectionist, or overbearing. We may also have emotions at extremes, from anger and hatred (expressed or not) to neediness, attention seeking, low self-confidence, or a victim narrative.
Today I invite you to reflect on how balanced and/or blocked you feel when you reflect on your identity (your sense of who you are) and/or your ability to bring about change and growth in your life. Where do you feel blocked and where do you feel balanced (in terms of your self-image and/or your power and strength to be a change agent)?
