Memories of Things Past: PART 6 of 7
The Sixth Emotional Centre is responsible for perception and thought. It is located mostly in the brain. Through the sensory organs of the eyes, ears, and nose, the brain first perceives the outer world and then attaches thought to these perceptions. We then take our thoughts and compare them to our experience in order to form patterns of thinking and behaviour that constitute our ethics or morality, which is also seated in this centre. It is how we see the world, interpret, and finally judge and act upon it that helps determine the degree of health or disease we experience in the organs of this emotional centre.
Our emotional centres contain contrasting sets of emotions, the powers and vulnerabilities which we must balance for best health. When an imbalance occurs, our intuition knows it and it speaks to us through our bodies in illness.
Sixth Emotional Centre: Power - Perception: Clarity, focus, acuity, lack of receptivity
Sixth Emotional Centre: Power - Thought: Wisdom, knowledge, rationality, linearity, rigidity and obsessiveness
Sixth Emotional Centre: Power - Morality: Conservative, law-abiding, judgmental, critical, conscientious, repressive
Sixth Emotional Centre: Vulnerability - Perception: Ambiguity, lack of focus, blindness, receptivity
Sixth Emotional Centre: Vulnerability - Thought: Ignorance, irrationality, nonlinearity, flexibility
Sixth Emotional Centre: Vulnerability - Morality: Liberal, risk-taking, guilty, available for feedback, uninhibited
Ask yourself if any of these statements ring true and see what side you tend to fall on - again, remember one isn't better than the other, but rather that we are seeking balance.
1) "I see the world as it is and tolerate a world full of ambiguity" (Perception)
2) "I have very strict rules that I live my life by" (Morality)
3) "I try to think of others points of view when confronting a situation" (Thought)
