Chakra Discovery – Kex (2/6)

I had a dream.

I dreamt that there was an enormous life force, an intense energy bursting out of me. I felt powerful, like I could conquer anything that comes my way.

Jess warned us today that the class was going to be tough.
It was, yet I had an enormous amount of energy to just keep trying. I felt like I could go on forever.

Interestingly, the theory lesson of the day was on the Chakra System.
The first time I was introduced to this concept was on a plane ride to Bali. It was a solo trip that I had planned, to stay in Ubud and do nothing but yoga and bliss out. On the plane, I was seated next to this American girl who was in the midst of her YTT in Bali with Meghan Currie. She was reading a book called “Eastern Body, Western Mind. Psychology and the Chakra System as a Path to the Self”. I was a psychology student so I was curious and we started having this conversation about the Chakra System.

I was skeptical cos it ain’t scientifically proven. Yet there is enough evidence to proof its existence. Chakra is neither a faith nor belief. But it’s something that we can feel and experience. If so, can we say that it is true? I believe in it, but I just can’t be sure about it. Perhaps it’s too egoistic of us human beings to think that everything in the universe can be explained.
Though I may never know the answer, it was an interesting alternative perception to understand/analyse the self. At least, now I know that I lack a lot of root chakra. Time to do some Malasana.

Peace out,
