As a professional, it’s easy to get caught up in aspects of our business that don’t come naturally. This often creates an energetic stickiness, much like wax.
However, when we nurture our professional passions, we burn brightly like a flame. The more we stay in our flame, the more successful we will be. Because, when we are passionate about what we do, we share that energy with others and ignite their passion too.
Our passion center energetically lies in the second (sacral) chakra, which is located two inches below our belly button. Its energy is directly tied to our big WHY.
Why do you do what you do professionally? Do you feel excited about it, or do you easily get overwhelmed with all the things you think you should be doing?
It’s easy get lulled into the shoulds and oughts of our business. Frequently, this is an indication of an overactive seventh chakra, which is located at the crown of the head. The seventh chakra element is thought, and thinking too much can often lead to mind chatter. We may get easily swayed by other people’s opinions, or get caught in old thinking patterns that lead us into repeating mistakes.
On a day-to-day basis, it can be hard to determine what we really need do to stay in our flame. Where do we need to focus our attention? What is going to move us closer to our goals? What are really distractions pulling us away from our flame? We all have an internal pendulum that helps us make daily yes/no, either/or decisions. But, sometimes we find ourselves too much in our heads, unable to make clear decisions.
A quick way to help you find clarity is to flip a coin. Think of an either/or – yes/no question that you would like answered. Decide which is heads and which is tails. Now flip. What is your reaction to your answer?
Listen to what your deeper feelings are telling you. When it came up heads or tails did you do a little internal YAY, or an Oh Crap. More important than whether it came up heads or tails, is your emotional response. The second chakra is the center of your emotions and feelings. Your feelings about the coin flip, helps create clarity and direct your next steps.
Both feelings and thoughts affect your ability to stay in your flame. When you direct positive feelings (second chakra), thoughts (seventh chakra) and subsequent actions (third chakra) towards your passions, you will begin to manifest the kind of success and abundance you seek in your work and life.
Take a moment and consider what percentage of your workday is spent in your flame – in processes that feed your passions. How do you feel about that percentage? Are you working mostly in your flame? Awesome! Are you in your flame just some of the time? Okay, you may need to delegate some things, or pay others to do some of the work that keeps you in your wax.
If you work mostly in your wax – you probably need to take a hard look at what’s keeping you there and why. Are you inadvertently allowing too much wax to smother your flame? Do you take false pride in making it hard for yourself by staying in your wax?
I challenge you to start paying more attention to your thoughts and feelings as you work throughout the day. Keep track of the amount of time spent in your wax and in your flame. Then begin to peel away the wax, so that you are truly ignited by your flame.
