This week’s theme is GUILT and the chakra we are focusing on for healing is the 2nd chakra located below the navel and it is the color orange. Our affirmation is: I attract like-minded people who support and love me.
Legend “Saint Apricot”
Apricot is a real saint she’s constantly setting aside her own needs to help others. She has many freeloading friends that are involved in her business and she doesn’t see how they take advantage of her. Her latest business partner announces that she wants to dissolve the company and split the profits. Apricot finally takes a stand. She does all the work and it’s her business. Now she only gives from her excess and not her reserves.
Honesty is Freedom
Guilt is really a fear of being disliked. This week you are being asked to take a closer look at your service to others. Are you enabling people in your life by helping them too much? I tend to be guilty of this. I like to be there for my children, even as grown adults, but many times by my over-involvement in their lives they miss critical lessons that experience has come to teach them. And I know (painfully) that if they don’t learn the lesson, it comes back around until they do (with or without my help).
Do not do for others what they can do for themselves. When you remember this it’s easy for you to stay in your personal power and not take on too much. For years I wanted to work at our annual Fish Fry for our church and for years my husband said, “The more you do the more they will want you to do.” I said, “That’s not true. You just say no.”
Finally, the day came and he said yes. We had a great time and even involved the kids. One day, the gal in charge, Pat, asked Curt to stay and work a second shift and he said yes (whispering to me, here we go! I thought, no way it’s just one time). The next thing I knew she was calling him all the time wanting extra help with this and that. She even started calling him at work. That’s when I drew the line. The next time she called I explained to her that Curt had a full-time job and we initially started volunteering as a family experience but her demands were putting too much stress on him and he was too kind to tell her no.
If you are easily manipulated, be extra-careful what you take on and be sure to have firm boundaries in place for saying no when it gets to be too much.
3 Words to Rebalance Your 2nd Chakra
How can you heal guilt and resentment and take back your power?
Be aware of what your limits are and when someone is manipulating you or taking advantage of your generosity.
Stay in your power by being honest and not denying your resentment or guilt. Express your feelings without embarrassment or shame and own it. If you don’t want to help that’s perfectly okay. You are not obligated to do more than you desire.
Surrender your truth and stand strong. Find other ways to serve that do not compromise your integrity and being true to yourself. It’s not selfish to feel the way you do. Your path for this lifetime may be to say no and not be the one that always says yes.
“Free From Guilt” Meditation
Take a nice deep breath and close your eyes (if you’re able).
Continue breathing deeply and completely for 3 full breaths.
I want you to imagine chains holding you down. Big, thick, heavy chains.
Take a deep breath and relax. As you relax you notice that the links begin to weaken one-by-one. See and hear each link fall to the ground with a thud.
With every link that falls away you see a chunk of fear and guilt falling away too.
When you are finally free, get up and walk into a glowing APRICOT light.
What happens next?
Relax deeper into this freedom and just watch for a few moments as the scene unfolds.
When you are ready take a nice deep breath and open your eyes.
Feeling calm, centered and free in every way.

Question of the Week
Am I giving away too much time and energy and resenting it?
Last week we looked at recovery with the 6th chakra and this week we are healing guilt in the 2nd chakra and stepping into our personal power.
This week is all about having the courage to say no to something that’s been a burden in your life, and delegating or employing someone or something to lighten your load.
If you are feeling angry or resentful it’s a red flag that something needs to change. Have the courage to ask for what you need and create a life of ease.
Go ahead, don’t forget to tell me what happened after you walked into the apricot light! I’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
