Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor—the Latin word for the heart. In one of its earliest forms the word courage meant “To speak one’s mind by telling one’s heart.”- Brene Brown
The third chakra can be a tricky energy center to explore. Associated with the element of fire this chakra can be a storehouse for big energy—fire can be strong, unpredictable and potent. Because of its intensity it can often mask some of the underlying energetic signatures that occur in this chakra. Despite all this intensity, one of the biggest opportunities in the third chakra is exploring vulnerability. So often, when anger, frustration and short-temperedness arise (emotions often associated with this chakra), it is because there is underlying fear underneath. Through this we are trying to hide and protect hurt parts of ourselves to keep from getting more deeply wounded.
