We can look at the world and see violence happening all over the place. We can also look at the world and feel the fear which is within people all over the place. And both violence and fear seemingly grow, and seemingly grow and seemingly grow.
The 3rd Chakra Connection
The spiritual consciousness 3rd Chakra is connected to the physical Adrenaline Gland. This particular Chakra part of the whole consciousness activates the Adrenaline Gland. We all know what adrenaline is. We all feel it when we’re pumped up for an athletic event or the latest roller coaster ride, or a scary movie, or a James Bond movie or an X-men movie or Deadpool Movie or a war movie or any number of all the other movies which are designed, written, and purposed to give an adrenaline thrill ride. It is the “fight or flight” experience. It is meant to be associated with personal power. (Even reading this last paragraph brings back memories of these activities and triggers adrenaline.)
It is the adrenaline experience that fuels many actions including violence – the “fight” part of the coin. This is the thirst for blood – the rush of adrenaline that comes with violence. Many seek this. Fear is also the adrenaline experience – the “flight” part of the experience. We either “run like everything the other way” or we fight. Many seek this, also. Fight or flight are both the 2 sides of one coin.
Currently, in our world, our reaction to violence is to bring forth more violence, because the original violence triggers fear within us, and through our response of violence, we’re trying to no longer be afraid via overpowering the original fear and violence.
Put another way, in our world, our reaction to this type of 3rd Chakra experience is to bring forth more of these types of 3rd Chakra experiences, because the original 3rd Chakra experience triggers another 3rd Chakra experience within us, and through our responding with this type of 3rd Chakra experience we’re trying to no longer have these types of 3rd Chakra experiences by trying to overpower the original 3rd Chakra experience with another 3rd Chakra experience.
Do you kind of get where the problem is with fear and violence – fight or flight?
Einstein once said, “We can’t solve a problem at the level at which it was created.” We can’t solve the cycle of violence and fear – a type of 3rd Chakra cycle of experiences – by bringing forth more violence and fear – more of the same types of 3rd Chakra experiences.
Options for Something Different
However, we can step out of the cycles of these 3rd Chakra experiences with two different changes in consciousness.
The 2nd option for change is to move our awareness up to the 4th Chakra and begin practicing 4th Chakra experiences whenever we are aware that we are responding to our life situations, circumstances, and experiences with adrenaline. It’s not always easy to do, because this act requires self-awareness. The self-awareness also needs to include the knowledge and awareness of the difference between 3rd and 4th Chakra experiences. This takes practice – months of practice added to years of practice added to one’s life path full of practicing.
This is a process of observing one’s self. It is also referred to “stepping aside and watching one’s self pass by.” Many times we can recall memories of our experiences easier, and this gives us the chance to “observe” how we reacted in the past. It also can become possible then to remember the present and our current responses happening in the ‘now’ moment.
The 4th Chakra’s center of response can move us to much different responses. It also can move us to many different choices available to us. None of the choices are “to not feel the 3rd Chakra” or “to feel nothing at all”. The 4th Chakra isn’t about “feeling nothing”.
Quite the opposite – the 4th Chakra is about feeling more than only what the 3rd Chakra offered. The 4th Chakra, the heart Chakra, is the Chakra centered on Love and the many different forms which love can take. Love can take many forms – compassion, mercy, forgiveness, patience, understanding, tolerance, etc.
In this topic, Love can come forth from the 4th Chakra in the form of compassion and understanding. This is the 1st option which I skipped over previously. The 1st change to the 3rd Chakra experiences from moving our response into the 4th Chakra is the compassion and understanding of the 3rd Chakra experiences of fight or flight – the compassion and understanding of the experiencing of fear and violence and why we experience these.
A transformation can take place by moving our responses into the 4th Chakra. As human beings, holding on to our compassion, we can begin to understand just how difficult and confusing it is to be a human being. We can understand what human beings go through to struggle and live on this planet. We can understand how our thinking styles, our ways of responding to experiences, and our chosen ways of believing can be so difficult to step out of, that it is any wonder that we’re able to find peace at all.
Being a human being is hard. We try to latch onto some way of living that may possibly lead us to something better. But, as human beings we can only do the best we can. Sometimes, we can only do the best we can at doing the best we can. Hence why responding from the 4th Chakra can be so important and helpful. It is from our heart that we offer compassion for the struggles of life that people face. It is from our heart that we find patience to extend to someone else who needs just that. It is from our heart that we find it within ourselves to live in some form of peace with others, allowing all the different ways of being human to try to coexist.
It is from our heart that we can transform the experience of fear and violence to one of compassion and understanding which in turn, can lead to acceptance and tolerance. Love is possible, when we move our consciousness from our adrenaline experiences to our heart – the center of love experiences and all the different forms that love could manifest.
As humans and spirits, we are all our Chakras and all our experiences – the sum total of all experiences we’ve ever had, plus the sum of all our potential possibilities for the future. That’s a lot, so, no experience or response we’ve ever had, is not “not part of us”. Nor should they be.
But, we have choices that we can make. We are more than automatic responses of fear and violence. We can make choices of healing and learning. We can make choices of compassion and understanding. We can make choices of growing in our awareness of our self and our being a human being. These choices can help us heal our self, our relationship, our communities, and even, our world. “With God, all is possible” no longer are just fancy words, but can become a new way of living.
The transformation of the 3rd Chakra by moving into the 4th, is a transformation of fear and violence to one of learning, understanding, compassion, and patience. In turn, these can also lead to mercy, forgiveness, and a healing of our Family of Man.
