We learn this lesson from yoga, that our world is created from the inside out. We communicate with ourselves first and this is echoed back to us. The affirmation of the 6th chakra is May I see and perceive clearly on every level and seek only the truth. The truth is that you create your reality.
“All I’m saying is that to liberate the potential of your mind, body and soul, you must first expand your imagination. You see, things are always created twice: first in the workshop of the mind and then, and only then, in reality. I call this process ‘blueprinting’ because anything you create in your outer world began as a simple blueprint in your inner world.” Robin Sharma, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari
While holding a difficult pose you create a story in your mind of effortless effort and then the pose becomes what you want it to be. Take this a step further. “To hold an image in our mind increases the possibility it will materialize.” The more you focus and repeat the story the stronger it gets.
“What you focus on, you create. So focus your attention consciously, and do not allow your attention to stray to results that you aren’t interested in manifesting. Because you can, and will, create more of what you are focusing on.” Mary Morrissey
Through self-reflection you can learn to harness the power of your mind into a story that serves your intention. The more you stay with it then the easier it is to tap into your ability to manifest. The word manifest simply means to realize your potential. Today, tell yourself the story of the next chapter of your life, allow yourself to transform like the butterfly. Outline your intentions and talk yourself through what that looks like in your life and you’ll see for yourself the magic of the 6th chakra at work!
