Create the Life You Imagine ~ July 2019

The Practice: Self Worth – How do I walk the path of the Soul?

“You don’t have to go to the mountaintop and study for ninety years. You don’t have to go to the ashram and chant your brains out. You must be a good, capable, responsible, thoroughgoing human being, and that’s how you walk the sacred path. It’s not about sweat baths; it’s not about drums. It’s about doing the hard work of living every day in a responsible, caring way.”

~ Paula Gunn Allen, Native American Poet, Professor and Activist

This quote by Paula Gunn Allen is a marvelous invitation into the work of our third chakra power center. As we continue to flow from the crown down, we move out of our heart center and down into our lower triangle personality. The work of being a spiritually conscious person in the world at this level is very practical work. It requires that you allow your Soul to come into expression as you walk through the everyday experiences of your real life while holding firmly onto your awareness of your True Self. As we reenter the lower triangle with our spiritual awareness active and intact, we transform our old lower triangle patterns and bring the full presence of our Soul into action in our lives and in the world. Now we can use the gifts of our personality, the power of our mind, the richness of our feelings and the animating power of our bodies to do our work in the world.
