The bright flowing energy of life
that courses through
those oft talked about chakras
aligning my body, mind, and soul
sometimes feel clogged.
They say it’s normal
to have places that are stuck.
Let’s start there!
Let’s open it up so you can breathe, unfold, flow, feel whole.
But it’s clogged…with dirt.
Those life-force channels
sometimes get mired in the sludge of messages and beliefs
from a long ago past.
Enmeshed in the lies that were told to my soul.
The truth of their lies evidenced in the
dirt underneath my nails.
Wait; This is a triggering time of year
I’m being pulled into a vortex of memory and shame.
Change the narrative
My life-force begins to circulate again
with bright colors and free-flowing qi
I feel the power of being in the now ~
the wind, sun, heat and throat clearing water.
Looking down, scanning, grounding
I see the dirt of the earth underneath my nails
and go and wash my hands.
