An Instagram user by the name of @shufflingfate has created a journal prompt challenge to inspire others to seek guidance in balancing their chakras through divination (#chakradivchallenge). I saw this as a long sought opportunity to let go of fear and doubt and return to the Tarot.
I’m embarrassed to say that the only reason I haven’t posted in almost a month is because I couldn’t decide what to write about. But a recent milestone in my healing journey has sparked me with inspiration.
I’ve been on a healing journey since 2011 and, for the first couple of years, it was mostly a journey of physical healing. Last year, my path turned deeper inward and I began a course of healing my deeper self by way of the chakras.
Only this month did I receive a message that my Work in Muladhara, the Root Chakra, was complete and I could continue on to Svadhisthana, the Sacral Chakra. I say “complete” in terms of my current Work. I feel that there are always lessons to be learned from the energies within and around us.
My Work in Muladhara was rewarding, but extremely difficult. Many times I found myself alone in the dark with overwhelming revelations about my past, but I cannot express enough the importance of finding out the source of the actions and habits that you are looking to release.
The best way that I can describe the situation with my chakras is that they’re in knots. While I may be able to begin healing in Svadhisthana now, I will no doubt be returning to Muladhara before I complete this journey.
