So I got this comment over at Teen Skepchick, in regards to April’s post about Spirit Science (a web series based on new age philosophies that makes me a sad panda). While I admit that my ego does sometimes float above the average line, I spend most of my time under it, so unless the writer is referring to the fact that I blog as proof for arrogance I don’t really see how I fit into that category. Either way, I thought it was interesting to hear someone deny that they their childhood abuse caused misery, instead putting the blame on a chakra. I know I shouldn’t be but I was seriously surprised that someone could come to this conclusion, although I am glad that they’ve managed to turn their life around. I have a big problem with victim blaming, for obvious reasons, but what do you even tell someone for whom it has worked? You’ve got me stumped.
‘Ya know some things are true whether YOU believe them or not lol
Even though you have decided chakras dont exist they in fact do. I sustained every single kind of abuse you can imagine in childhood. Systematic as well. I managed to become a productive member of society & be self sufficient but I did not understand “love” I learned survival but I had one mentally ill parent, wasnt given ANY tools.
It is through life experience & illness that I was determined to heal without drugs & that in turn led me to the esoteric.
I had to spend YEARS working to get my heart chakra opened! It was severely blocked & caused untold pain in my life. And I went along thinking it was abuse? ? Go figure.
The feeling was insane! Absolutely insane! Literally felt it inside me like I got shot by a gun! I also had to work incredibly hard for a year & a half to leave my body.
Self-esteem can only exist when you take the time to clear yourself of those things that no longer work, take pride in yourself & make a realistic plan to better your life/yourself. It is not a feeling of power over others, it is an acceptance of others, a feeling of power over your own life.
Unlike the others here I kinda like your attitude, your arrogance, your skepticism because WE NEED DIVERSITY!! While I do not agree w/you I LOVE that the world is made up of individual souls! Each one is SUPPOSED to be different. So I just hope you open your mind a tiny bit more w/each year you reside in the physical vehicle you occupy now. Because some things are true whether YOU believe it or not ) And the more bodies on this planet that ARE in touch w/each chakra in & around their body & ARE in touch w/the balance of energy or lack thereof inside themselves the better off ALL OF US will be!
P.S. If you start to understand that you are a spiritual being having a physical experience & NOT the other way around you start to understand HOW your hardships are a result of your souls past actions. So while I know it sounds crazy to believe you are responsible for your own pain (tell someone who’s miserable their sadness is their own fault-harmful?) the moment I started learning, understanding, experiencing & opening those “ports” I started owning ALL of my pain. I own my fathers abandonment, I own the family I was given, I started to take responsibility & miserable-ness went away!
Im living breathing proof it is NOT harmful to take responsibility for your own energy be it miserable or happy. Ever! And its NEVER to late to start :O)
Im grateful for the SpiritScience folks & all the others out there like them helping to spread the news. Happy Holidays’
