Solar Plexus & Fear
3-14. Non-resistant thought expands the Solar Plexus; resistant thought contracts it. Pleasant thought expands it; unpleasant thought contracts it. Thoughts of courage, power, confidence and hope all produce a corresponding state, but the one arch enemy of the Solar Plexus which must be absolutely destroyed before there is any possibility of letting any light shine is fear. This enemy must be completely destroyed; he must be eliminated; he must be expelled forever; he is the cloud which hides the sun; which causes a perpetual gloom.
3-15. It is this personal devil which makes men fear the past, the present and the future; fear themselves, their friends and their enemies; fear everything and everybody. When fear is effectually and completely destroyed, your light will shine, the clouds will disperse and you will have found the source of power, energy and life.
3-16. When you find that you are really one with the Infinite power, and when you can consciously realize this power by a practical demonstration of your ability to overcome any adverse condition by the power of your thought, you will have nothing to fear; fear will have been destroyed and you will have come into possession of your birthright.
Time to let your light shine.
Last year during this same week’s lesson I was going through so much internal change. The struggle seemed so real. And my solar plexus was definitely off balance. My Week 3 post was filled with so much fear and lack of trust in my own life process. And then I found a way out once again it was through meditation in the teachings of Haanel. It is so easy to fall into the pits of fear, especially with all that is going on in our country let alone the world. One click on the television or a trip onto Facebook we can be so easily brought into the pools of fear and lack. And until reading Haanel’s lesson 3 this week I don’t think I really understood how much control we really do have over it.
Fear is just a bi-product of an untamed mind. Lack of discipline keeps the mind in these states. Vigorous training, patience and consistency tames the mind therefore tames the fear. Eventually it will be destroyed. With this golden key to your universe will you unlock your true powerful potential? Or will you leave the key on the table? Each week it continues to become more and more clear. All the answers are in the sit and work that you do while you are there.
We have been allowing our light to be dim for far too long. It is time to let our light shine to the world. Fearless and full of Life Force. We will continue to attract positivity and abundance once we let our light shine freely.
Healing the Solar Plexus Chakra
“The main challenge for the third chakra is to use your personal power in a balanced manner. What does that mean? It means consciously harnessing the energy of the solar plexus chakra. It means being proactive rather then reactive or inactive. Beings with excessive third chakra energy react to life circumstances, they have emotional outbursts and are often stressed out. Beings with blocked or deficient third chakra are passive and inactive – allowing life to pass by while they do nothing. Strong third chakra reflects the ability to move forward in life with confidence and power. It reflects the ability to make conscious choices to choose and to act. The message of the third chakra is: You have the power to choose. You can choose to achieve your life purpose or you can live out your karma or past experiences.” (Source: Chakra Anatomy )
