I’m sitting at sunset, gazing at one of my glorious quartz crystal generators. It is long and shaped with lots of clouds and cracks and inclusions that are winking rainbows at me in the sunlight. I asked my Guidance about the rainbows in the crystals that I’m drawn to. I was told “Rainbows are the beauty created by the ‘flaws’ “, with a strong nudge that the same applied to us humans. Could that be true? Could it be the defects I try so hard to hide that others see as part of my inner and outer beauty? Certainly when I do crystal sessions on others, I can see the beauty of their souls – being exactly the way they are. “Warts and all”. Hmm. I have a hard time accepting that in myself.
I move my attention to my crown chakra. It feels blocked, with a “lid on”, keeping me from moving past seeing myself as just a flawed human to an awareness of being part of the All. I try to pry the lid off but my Guidance gently points out that trying to force it open is futile. I step back in somewhat grudging acceptance. I get an image of a block letter, dropping out of my crown into a copper bowl. A block? Removed from my chakra? It’s the letter “L”. I’m not sure what that means. It has something to do with my identity as “Lindsay”, with my forgetting that such identification is fluid and temporary.
One by one my Guidance takes me through my chakras. In each a block falls into the bowl. From my 3rd eye, the block is “vision”. Huh? Ahh, what I think I perceive blocks me from perceiving what is truly there. The block in my heart is “hope”. Hope? Hope for X keeps me from being open to Y. OK, that makes sense. The block in my solar plexus is fear – no surprise there. Fear also blocks my naval – not a major chakra per se but still the nerve plexus related to receiving nurturance. The block in my second chakra is a box – putting my creative drive in a predefined box. I don’t recognize the block in my root chakra, but something falls into the bowl from it also.
I am directed to take my own copper bowl, now with all the blocks in it, and to ring it until the blocks release back into pure energy.
