No doubt you’ve been told many times to follow your gut feeling. “Trust your gut!,” they all say. What does this mean, exactly?
From a psychic perspective, the so-called “gut” is home to the 2nd chakra. A chakra is an energy center in the body that contains a specific level of information that affects the body, mind, and spirit. The 2nd chakra, located in the abdominal region of the body, contains your body’s emotional information. It’s all about how and what you feel.
Many people navigate their lives through following their intuition; their gut feeling. From a psychic point of view, what they are actually doing is using their 2nd chakra as their compass and making decisions based on how things ‘feel’ to them in their body. “It just feels right.” Sound familiar? That’s someone orienting from their 2nd chakra, also known as clairsentience.
People who are particularly empathetic can have a particularly wide or open 2nd chakra, which explains why they feel so much of what other people around them feel. Imagine the 2nd chakra like a Doppler radar; it can pick up the emotional vibrations of everyone around it. While there are many beautiful gifts inherent to being in tune with the feelings of the people around you, sometimes it can be tricky to discern what are actually your own feelings versus someone else’s.
This is because other people’s feelings can leak into your 2nd chakra. When this happens, you will feel both your own AND other people’s emotions. For instance, have you ever walked into a room of grumpy people and instantly felt grumpy too? This is quite common! However, this can make it tricky to discern which of the feelings you’re feeling are actually your own.
For instance, say that you are trying to decide whether to switch careers, and you are not emotionally clear on your decision. In this scenario, say that your parents wish you would go back to school. However, maybe your co-workers have a strong emotional investment in you staying in your current job.
If both your parents’ feelings as well as your coworkers’ feelings enter your 2nd chakra, everyone else’s feelings can cloud what your own feelings are on the matter. This can make it difficult to make a decision based on your own gut feeling, and can sometimes lead you to unintentionally make choices based on someone else’s feelings. Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever made a decision and regretted it later?
What would it be like to make intuitive decisions from a place of your own clear truth? Imagine how different your life would be, if you were making choices based on your own gut feeling, unclouded by the feelings and emotions of others.
How could this change your life? How could this influence the life of others around you? How could this impact your community? How could this clarity make a difference on the planet?
