Water Chakra

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes a cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes a bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.

~~Bruce Lee

imgp0183Initially, I struggled to understand the water chakra, I found several areas to do further research.  I wanted to learn more about  Brahma and Saraswati, parents of all creation, and Yemaya to invoke positive vibes that will help to nurture myself and others.  

I was surprised to learn that there is an African sea goddess of fertility and sexuality and I knew nothing about her.  Yemaya or Yemoja is the mother of the ocean, the mother of all.  I just realized that I was singing her name, Yemaya, while typing this.  If you are familiar with Aguanile, Hector Lavoe chants her name and it has always given me chills and now I feel excited to know more about her energy and power.

Through Yemoja, I am learning to nurture myself and share the power of touch.  A gentle touch to my husband while he is sleeping whether it is to his scalp, temples or forehead, I notice that his breathing changes to a more relaxed, rhythmic state.  Touch is powerful.

imgp0182I am still trying to connect the dots of this chakra to my life.   I am a pisces and I love the water.   I love to be near it and hear it and feel it.  That may not be unique to me but I also have a tragic relationship with water so I try to face this duality as well.  Ultimately, I recognize that I have work to do and I am happy to have the blueprint to take those steps by learning more about this chakra that was mysterious to me before now.
