Episode 10: The Seat of Power

We have all moments of pain or discomfort in this physical form. In fact, many of us have recurring issues in those areas that last for years, or even a lifetime. For many, our solution is to go to the doctor, or try to heal things with another outward fix, like changing our diets or getting massages or taking pain pills. 

But what if these pains and discomforts of the body are direct messages asking us, again and again, to take notice and go inward to hear an important message? 

That's not a new question - we've heard it before. But do we really take that in? Do we really stop and listen? 

For most of my life, I've struggled with feelings of discomfort in my pelvic/abdominal region. Often, this has been a feeling of a heavy weight pulling me down, and a feeling of expansion pressing outward, away from me. Super uncomfortable. I always attributed this to my weight issues and years of eating disorders.

However, somewhat recently, that area of my body has been speaking to me very strongly and insisting that I listen. And to my surprise, it's not about weight or eating issues. Not at all. 

There's a lot more going on and the more I listen, the more I feel like I can let go of the heavy feeling and embrace the outward push. 

There's a lot of power in the pelvic bowl - our lowest three chakras are in or near that region, the three chakras that relate to our physical presence and power in this earthly world. And many of us struggle with the physical. It's not surprising that our pelvic region might be roiling with energy, begging us to pay attention.
