You Are Intangible
As you begin to notice your reactions, you are separating yourself from them. You are the witness, and you are intangible. The real transformation begins when you begin to live from the place of your witness consciousness, instead of getting caught up in your reactions to others, to situations, and to limited beliefs about yourself.
At times, your reactions are defense mechanisms, and they come from the deep place within where fear resides. If you can observe those reactions, you will notice they aren't productive and they don't help you thrive. Your reactions are productive indicators for you on your path of wellness. Use them to see what in life gets you stuck. Then you will see which chakras to balance to help clear those blockages.
In her poem The Invitation, Oriah Mountain Dreamer juxtaposes a list of achievements of the physical world with the powerful journey to who you truly are. She writes, “It doesn't interest me/where or what or with whom/you have studied./I want to know/what sustains you/from the inside/when all else falls away.”
When things happen in life that bother you, anger you, frustrate you, as the witness you can step back, look at the situation as it is, and breathe. Exploring the rough spots and the difficult emotions takes work and courage. At the same time, the healing process that you embark on can be creative, loving, and enjoyable.
