Emotional Confidence

I have been reading Emotional Confidence by Gael Lindenfield, and I simply must quote

"Turn your focus away from the person or thing that hurt you, and back onto yourself and your own emotional health"

Be creative

I recently read on a recent Crimson Circle Shroud, ( http://www.crimsoncircle.com/ ) About the importance of being creative.

When we are creative, we allow our energy to flow. Being creative can help us to feel better, especially when we have finished. Sitting back and viewing what you have made, helps to give us a sense of achievement.
Being creative helps us to feel satisfied, allows us to express ourselves and helps us to unwind.

I know that some people struggle to be creative. Being good at, or enjoying painting, drawing, singing or playing an instrument doesn't come as a birth right to many people.
Yet, there are many other ways that you can be creative.

for example;
- cooking
- gardening
- poetry
- writing
- building a website
- re-decorating your home
- woodwork
- airfix type models
- crafts, papermaking, quilling, wood-burning
- sewing & knitting

Being creative is about allowing ourselves to relax, it's about building or making something which expresses who you are. It doesn't have to be anything big, it doesn't have to be something that requires a lot of expensive outlay.

If I recall the shroud mentioned to try to something creative every single day. Maybe that may be a little too much for some people, but prahaps, something creative for at least an hour a week would be a good start - mind, I do believe that once you get started, you'll be wanting to do it for longer!

Duality: Ii is s the two seperate parts of ourselves, that have a clear distinction, yet when we find it difficult to live our daily lives in either fully.
One part of us is the 'old' us. The person we were BEFORE we saw light or glimmer in being a more spiritual person.
The other part of us is the 'new' us. The person we want to be, more spiritual, more in balance and more at peace.

Finding ourselves getting angry, or upset, or selfish, or controlling. Then standing back and thinking "What am I doing!"

Duality is normal. Duality is a process, a part of us which is learning to live in a new way. Whenever there is change, it takes time to adjust.

Let's take a simple example. For years you have put the sugar bowl next to the kettle. After a tidy up and re-arrangement, the sugar bowl now resides on the shelf. For days after moving it, you instinctively reach for the sugar bowl, expecting it to be by the kettle. For a second you think "Where is it" and then you remember it's new home on the shelf.
Eventually, you will instinctively reach for it on the shelf. But it takes time.

Duality also arises when we mix with the general public, we are faced with situations and circumstance which requires us to 'fit in' with whatever is going on around us. At the grocery store, the post office, the workplace... We all have to find a balance, a way to handle these places and situations in the best way that we can. But often we find, especially at the start of a spiritual journey; that we find ourselves slipping back into the 'old' us, in order to get by, because the 'new' us simply doesn't know how to respond, or maintain itself surrounded by old influences.

Rememeber, that's normal too.
Change doesn't come naturally, change needs to be learnt, handled and needs to become the 'norm'. This takes time. And one step at a time is fine.

Chakra / Back Ache

About 10 years before I 'learnt' about Chakras. I used to have a terrible lower back ache. (Situated at the back of my Sacral Chakra). Some days it was terribly painful, other days it was like there was no problem at all. I recall going to the doctors, having it looked at by a specialist, and had x-rays - yet no problem could be found. No problem, yet the back pain continued, intermitantly for many years.

As I started working on my chakras, eventually I realised that I should fix my back. After a few months of intense soul searching, understanding myself and my issues around the sacral chakra, finding ways to resolve the issues and chakra energy work/visualisation.
The back pain never returned.
Along with that, I noticed that I never EVER got (sorry guys) PMT. Any women out there that suffer very badly with PMT - please, I do recommend that you look back in your life for any old issues that relate to the sacral chakra.

When in balance the sacral chakra offers us; Self Respect, self esteem, confidence in our abilities, a sense of freedom.

Imbalances are caused by restriction, Withdrawn behaviour/wanting to withdraw, destructive feelings, dependency, waiting, Low self esteem, low sex drive, difficulty communicating with other people (particularly the opposite sex). Denial of pleasure (not just sex), Martyr behaviour.

If you back ache is originating here, are you are likely having issues which involve give or take'
