The Seven Fundamental Rights of the Chakra System ~ By Terri Pippin The Medicine Woman
We have fundamental rights that make us who we are. Knowing this is one of the basic steps to understanding yourself. These basic rights are the foundation for our lives and the foundation of the Chakra/Energy System.
The underlying right of the First Chaka (Root) is the right to be here. This is manifested in the right to have what we need to survive When we are denied the basic necessities of survival - food, clothes, warmth, medical care, and physical touch, our right too have is threatened and we are likely to question that right throughout our lives in relations to many things from money and possessions, to love and time to ourselves.
The right to feel is the basic right governed by the Second Chakra (Sacral). 'Boys don't cry' , 'How can you express your self that way? You should be ashamed of yourself''. These kinds of remarks infringe on our right to feel. A culture that frowns upon emotional expressions or calls someone weak for being sensitive also infringes on this basic right. A spinoff of this right is the right to want. If we can't feel it is very difficult to know what we want.
The Third Chakra's (Solar Plexus) fundamental right is the right to act - this right is restricted by abusive authority. We are taught to obey and follow - that actions taken had better be right. Fear of punishment and enforcement of blind obedience, whether from parents or culture seriously impair our personal power - the conscous use of our rght to act.
The right to love and be loved is the basic right of your Fourth Chakra (Heart). In a family, this right can be damaged when parents do not constantly and unconditionally love and care for their child. When conditions are put on love a child's self - love is threatened. When we get hurt or rejected we often question or restrict our right to love and we then shutdown our heart chakra.
The right to speak and hear the truth is the fundamental right of the Fifth Chakra (Throat). Difficulty occurs when we are not allowed to speak in our family. This incudes not being heard when you do speak, not being spoken to honestly, when we are told to keep secrets or maintain family lies our fifth chakra shuts down. When we are critized for our attempt to speak or have our trust violated around communicating private matters we gradually lose contact with our right to speak.
The fundamental right of the Sixth Chakra (Third Eye) is the right to see. This right is damaged when we are told that what we perceive is not real When things are deliberate hidden or denied or from having our vision misunderstood and discounted. When what we see is ugly, frightening or inconsistent with something we know, our physical vision will be effected by the closing down of our third eye. Claiming the right st see helps us to reclaim our physic abilities as well.
The fundamental right of the Seventh Chakra (Crown) is the right to know. This incudes the right to education, information, the truth and the right to knowledge. Equally important are our spiritual rights, to connect with the Divine in what ever way we perceive it.
This is the foundation for your chakra system and a beginning of knowing your true self. The Medicine Woman is offereing classes, workshops and private appointments for Chakra Healing and Development.
