How much time, energy and money have each of us spent trying not to feel or "heal" things we don't want to feel?
Our ring fingers are known as the Apollo finger. They are where the Sun lives on our hands. The Sun in our hands is above our heart line. The Moon lives under the heart line on the pinky finger side of the hand.
The Sun is on fingers that move. The Moon is in the palm in a place that doesn't move much. How is your Sun not shining aka expressing itself because of old "buried" feelings or rules of the tribe? How is your Sun being held back by ideas of what it means to be a woman or a man and/or what you are allowed to feel/talk about?
In our hands everything that lives under the heart line (aka 1rst, 2nd and 3rd chakras) may be where we "store" feelings, desires, instincts, and knowing that our family or tribe told us it wasn't okay to have/feel/know/express. It's where instinct lives. Burying those feelings or hiring a "healer" to take them out of your body doesn't really make them go away. How much time, energy and money have each of us spent trying not to feel things we don't want to feel? What we don't want to feel/express is running our lives.
Send me an e-mail expressing something you have been holding in.
Everything that lives under the heart line (in your 1rst, 2nd and 3rd chakras) has to be able to make it through the heart line to be expressed from the "throat" or voice (5th chakra) of each of the 4 fingers that live above the heart line.
What are you holding in/back from expressing in order to be "nice" ? Or more likely trying to be "seen as nice," because only people who are totally cut off from their own feelings would buy into the "nice" mask - when we are really raging volcanoes or rivers under the surface.
One other thing to play with before the workshop. The Thumb in hand analysis is the Manifesting finger. The thumb is on the opposite side of the hand from where the heart line begins. The thumb is an opposable digit. We have to oppose something to manifest. What we need to oppose may be our image of ourselves - I'm not like that, I couldn't possibly etc. ... and sometimes it's opposing other people.
What would you manifest if you unabashedly spoke your desires and then took action? What if I told you the heart has nothing to do with manifesting? How are you using your heart (or your idea of what a heart is) to censor your desires? It's an old-fashioned theory that feelings come from the heart. The heart is a motor in human design. The heart circulates blood (sign of life and death) and if we are cutting off our feelings aka our desires- circulation may stop.
I have heard so many people tell me they don't know what they desire or what they are passionate about. Who told you once upon a time that you were too passionate? Who told you not to get excited? Who told you not to fight? Who told you that you weren't going to get everything you desired? Who locked you in a tower (your mind and your crown and intellect) like Rapunzel and cut you off from the desires in your body?
Manifesting comes from Venus and Mars.
You've heard that you have to be able to give and receive in order to manifest? We're going to amp this up to we have to be able to penetrate and be penetrated to manifest. Penetrated by life force energy and wisdom that doesn't make "sense". Kelly Eckert reminded me that orgasm is poetically referred to as death. We lose control during an orgasm. Our raw selves reveal themselves. Our raw material is often what we are mistakenly trying to heal. Our raw material is where our creativity and money are.
Remember next Saturday is the Mourning Moon - Full Moon in Taurus. We have to grieve and mourn in order to fully live.
p.s. In the photo the circle in the center of the hand - is where many of us store sadness and grief. More on this in my next blog.
