Daily Chakra Reading (January 22nd)
Today’s chakra oracle reading brings Perception from anahata (heart chakra) and Isolation from vishuddha (throat chakra). Are we isolating ourselves from others for the wrong reasons? Do we need to look at how we perceive our situation and others (perhaps even how we fear to be perceived and change our outlook? Perception encourages to move forwards, not back, even if life’s journey feels like it’s bringing us back to the same places. Similar does not mean the same, so focus on what in your situation has changed. Isolation warns that we may be pulling against the forward motion. Self protection is important, but focus too much on this and you risk cutting yourself off from opportunities that are there. It’s time to be spontaneous and stop focus on the preparations that come before the doing. On an larger scale it’s interesting to see anahata and vishuddha coming together in this meaning. Anahata is blocked by grief and loss (whatever the loss and grief is about, whether it is a person, a job, a relationship, health or otherwise) and vishuddha is blocked by lies (even more so the lies we tell ourselves). Grief and pain can make us isolate ourselves, often because of how we are afraid to be perceived by those around us. We will tell lies to ourselves and others in order to protect ourselves, we become willing to wear a mask that hides the pain within. Today might be a good day to bring it down and safely allow ourselves to feel what is behind that mask. You may be surprised to find that even through pain, joy may be blossoming.
