A rose envisaged whilst meditating on the sacral chakra - love and relationships.
THE SACRED SACRAL CHAKRA
The sacred sacral chakra,
where emotions can run high.
Where ego lifts its ugly head to rule in dominion,
of absolute power or none at all.
It cannot know that in-between.
That place where relationship comes first.
Ego stands alone.
But we were not born as if conjured from thin air,
an ego without soul.
We came from the belly of our mother,
a place of tenderness, togetherness.
The first relationship that holds, protects and nurtures,
this individual self.
Born from this sacred sacral place,
we connect through our metaphoric umbilical chord.
But If this chord is weak and in disharmony, our belly fills with red hot rage.
Emotions turbulate and churn.
There is no holding, no comfortable womb.
Instead, a void of blackness, a negative charcoal grey,
that draws you down
and down and down
you feel you have no root
you feel you have no sense of self
you feel you have no sense of worth
There is fear in this space of severed emptiness.
One cannot know who is friend and who is foe.
So, we must dig down, to the underneath.
To the bowl of red ancestral blood that lies below.
Through sanguine roots that safely hold.
For we are not alone.
Our feet touch the soil and our head breathes in the sky.
As a rose of yellow rises, centred in our be-ing.
Gold conjoins to cardinal earth,
an infusion fills the air,
an iridescent, orange glow.
Instead of isolation - we sense the touch of tender unity.
Relationship feeds the flower's bloom.
The rose breathes out, as we breathe in.
We breathe out, as the rose breaths in.
As we merge deeper into this amber realm,
we hear the words;
'you are loved'.
To know this dissolves the void.
