Moving from Chakra 2 to Charka 3

For the past week, I’ve been immersed in the pleasures and sensual awakening that is possible in chakra 3.  It was simply a heart-opening week at Valley View Hot Springs.

And it was hard to leave.  I found myself starting to drop into the rhythms of the place.  Wake up, soak, eat, soak, meet, talk, share, open, soak, eat, open heart.  Repeat.

But with the closing of Chakra 2, I knew it was time to leave.  Because of “wet and wild” weather, I decided to wait an extra day.  The weather didn’t get any better; in fact, it got worse.  Nevertheless, I hit the road.

I once again reconnected with the Continental Divide Trail – this time in Salida. As the road meandered up and into the Rockies, I took a break to capture what I’d experienced in Chakra 2, and to explore what chakra 3 means to me …

  1. Wanting to send wishes, blessings and warm golden thoughts to light your spirit as you play with the fiery manipura chakra and her power to burn away obstacles. May you blissfully embrace the mind-body connection.

    You cannot know fire from words alone. Enter the fire if you want to know the truth~*~RUMI

  2. you lost your fork stem nut?!!! yes, the good stuff is keeping an eye on you.

    i’m sure you’re aware the different level of chakras cannot exist without one thing…balance. nature needs balance. we need balance.
    positive and negative, yin and yang, male and female, dark and light. in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “…a time to be born, a time to die…a time to plant, a time to reap…a time to kill, a time to heal…”
    one cannot exist without the other…that’s the order.

    head on, doug!

  3. Is that what that’s called? A fork stem nut? Well, it’s gotta be important. I’m in Boulder now, and hope to find a Suzuki dealership around here somewhere that has the parts I need.

    Meanwhile … “head on!” …
