I’m a rule follower; I like to follow the rules… except when I don’t. I have this dichotomy of being an extreme rule follower, and then rebelling against rules; especially rules that make no sense.
Yet sometimes, I can get so caught up in doing things “perfectly” that I don’t think to question the rules I’m following.
This happened recently in my Master’s class. The instructor was talking about finding out what color each chakra wants to be each day. At first, I rejected that idea, as all the chakras have their colors, right? But then the more I listened to her, the more it made sense that maybe for the most part chakras are a specific color, but what if sometimes they’re not?
What if your body is trying to tell you that for you, the color green is the most representative of safety and security and so that’s what color you prefer in your first chakra? Maybe that color helps you to heal versus the traditional red. Who says you have to have red if you need green?
When you think about it, we’re all individual, who says our chakras all match?
Maybe, you’re an outlier in the colors that work best for you.
I worked on a client recently and we were doing intensive chakra healing and I told her that each of her chakras wanted to be in the red/pink/orange color scheme. That made perfect sense to her as those colors represented the vitality she was looking to create in her physical body. When she filled those colors into her chakras, she felt more vibrant than she had in a long time.
Trust yourself versus what you’ve always been told. I don’t know about you, but this idea is phenomenally freeing to me. Yes on a typical day I go with the usual colors, but every so often I’ll get a message that a different color is much better that day in a specific chakra and when I listen and I allow it, it feels so good in my body.
I encourage you this week to see what actually works for you versus what you’ve always been taught is correct. See if there are colors you need in certain areas of your body to bring healing. Bypass the “rules” that you’ve been taught. Connect with yourself and your needs and let that override anything else.
What better way to create self-trust and self-love, than to listen to your needs above all else. Break the rules and set yourself free.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
