TOPIC: THE THIRD CHAKRA - COLOR YELLOW -
3-9-12 - DREAM - LOVE AND SEX - EXPRESS YOUR EMOTIONS!
I was in downtown Milwaukee, living at Juneau Village. I thought I was Manager of the building, but they didn't even know I was living there, and I hadn't gone down to the office to tell them I was there yet either.
I had to go to the court house and file a paper of some kind and was driven there by two men in a large white car.
On the way there, David (a tall lanky handsome hunk of a guy - name means LOVE ) drove me there, with another man in the back seat who I recognized at IEOSOUS (real name not revealed here) We've been in love since I was 18 but rarely see ach other except in dreams. We've been in many lifetimes together. On the way to the court house, none of us spoke to each other.
When we got to the court house, we parked by the curb, right behind a police car - practically touching it.
I don't remember going into the court house to file the paper, but the policeman confronted us about not parking there so we had to leave.
Back in the car, David decided to loll on the back seat (he was wearing a Hawaiian type shirt and cotton pants) and I thought I was going to drive, but IEOSOUS got behind the wheel of the car which forced me to sit in the front passenger seat where I had sat on the way there. They were really taking me for a ride.
I hoped that IESOUS hadn't been drinking as he was gripping the steering wheel quite tightly at the moment.
David then said, "Lets talk abut LOVE." to which I replied "No! "Lets not. That's too painful."
To that IESOUS said, "You need to express your emotions."
I looked down at my legs then and saw that I was wearing a bright yellow shirt, but my slacks were a darker yellow - going on brown, and I didn't like that my pants didn't match my shirt very well.
By then we were back at the apartment building, driving on a roadway that went around the building, and we came to a man who looked like a salesman.
We stopped to see why he was wandering around and we stopped and I said, "I'm the manager", and he replied, "Nice digs!" and kept walking.
We started to drive again and discovered that this driveway had no exit to the street unless we wanted to drive over a bumpy curb, so I woke up.
NOTE: IESOUS is the Greek name for Jesus!

THESE ARE THE TANTRIC CHAKRAS
THE THIRD CHAKRA: COLOR YELLOW
Manipura is located at the spine directly behind either the navel or the solar plexus, depending on the system, while its kshetram or superficial activation point is located directly on the navel (or solar plexus).
Manipura is represented by a downward pointing red triangle, the fire region, within a bright yellow circle, with 10 dark-blue or black petals, like heavily laden rain clouds. The triangle has a t-shaped swastika on each of its sides. The fire region is represented by the god Vahni, who is shining red, with 4 arms, holding a rosary and a spear, and making the gestures of granting boons and dispelling fear. He is seated on a ram, the animal that represents this chakra.
The seed mantra is the syllable 'Ram'. Within the Bindu or dot above this mantra resides the deity Rudra, who is red or white, with 3 eyes, of ancient aspect with a silver beard, and smeared with white ashes. He makes the gestures of granting boons and dispelling fear. He is either seated upon a tiger skin, or upon a bull. His Shakti is the goddess Lakini. She is black or dark-blue vermillion, with 3 faces with 3 eyes each, and four-armed, holding a thunderbolt, the arrow shot from the bow of Kama, fire, and making the gesture of granting boons and dispelling fear. She is seated upon a red lotus.
The ten petals are dark-blue or black, like heavily laden rainclouds, with the syllables dda, ddha, nna, ta, tha, da, dha, na, pa, and pha upon them in a dark-blue colour. They correspond to the vrittis of spiritual ignorance, thirst, jealousy, treachery, shame, fear, disgust, delusion, foolishness and sadness.
Manipura is considered the centre of dynamism, energy, willpower and achievement (Itcha shakti.), which radiates prana throughout the entire human body. It is associated with the power of fire, and digestion. It is also associated with the sense of sight, and the action of movement. Manipura is "the center of etheric-psychic intuition: a vague or non-specific, sensual sense of knowing; a vague sense of size, shape, and intent of being." As such, some psychics recommend "listening" to it since it may help in making better decisions in one's life on many different levels.
Through meditating on Manipura, one is said to attain the siddhi, or occult power, to create and destroy the world.
The position of Manipura is stated as being either behind the navel or the solar plexus. Sometimes, when it is located at the navel, a secondary chakra called Surya (sun) chakra is located at the solar plexus, whose role is to absorb and assimilate prana from the sun. Being related to the sense of sight, it is associated with the eyes, and being associated with movement, it is associated with the feet. In the endocrine system, Manipura is said to be associated with the pancreas, and the outer adrenal glands; the adrenal cortex. These glands create important hormones involved in digestion, converting food into energy for the body, in the same way that Manipura radiates prana throughout the body.
In kundalini yoga, different practices for arousing and balancing the energies of Manipura include various asanas which work on that part of the body, pranayama, Uddiyana bandha (exhaling and pulling back and up of the abdomen and diaphragm respectively) and agnisara kriya (practicing jalandhara bandha, and moving the abdomen in and out), as well as the practice of Nauli (stomach churning), and a pranayama called the union of prana and apana, where the lower and higher winds are made to unite together.
In the Vajrayana Highest Tantra traditions, the navel wheel is extremely important as being the seat of the 'red drop'. It is triangular, red, with 64 petals or channels that extend upwards. Inside of it is the short syllable 'Ah'. Meditation on this syllable is the key component of the practice of Tummo, or inner heat, where the subtle winds are made to enter the central channel, and rise up to the top of the channel, in an experience akin to that of 'raising the kundalini' in Hindu terminology, melting the subtle white drop in the crown, and causing the experience of great bliss. This practice is considered the first and most important of the 6 yogas of Naropa.
In Chinese qigong, there exists 3 Dantians, act as furnaces to convert different energies in the body. The lower Dantian exists in the region of the stomach. It's function is to convert sexual jing energy into Qi energy (a concept similar to Indian Prana).
Within the system of the Sufi Lataif-e-sitta, there are a number of Lataif on the torso, but they are not distributed vertically, like chakras, but have some to the left and some to the right. The nafs, or lower self, is a centre situated below the navel.
Western occultists make different kabbalistic associations with Manipura. For some, it relates to the sephira of Hod and Netzach, Netzach being that quality of energy to overcome different obstacles, and Hod being the tendency to control and break down energy into different forms, the two being contending and balancing forces, like the forces of anabolism and catabolism in the human body. Hod and Netzach are associated with the left and right legs and feet of the body.
THE Third CHAKRA represents the development of your personality, self-esteem, and ego. Organs associated with the Third Chakra include the area of your solar plexus: your abdomen, upper intestines, liver, gall bladder, stomach, kidney, pancreas, spleen, adrenal system, and middle spine. Spiritual and emotional issues that can block energy in the Third Chakra are challenges with self-confidence, self-respect, competence and skills in the outer world, substance abuse, aggression, defensiveness, making decisions, and competitiveness. Physical dysfunctions that can occur are: ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, heartburn, diabetes, diarrhea, indigestion, anorexia, bulimia, and hepatitis.
Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the color yellow. This is the area
which defines our "self-esteem". The personality that develops during puberty is
housed in this chakra....otherwise known as the "EGO". Anyone experiencing
dysfunction of the third chakra is having difficulty obtaining or maintaining
his/her own "personal power". This intuitive chakra is where we get our "gut
instincts" that signal us to do or not to do something. Strong self-esteem is a
required for developing intuitive skills.

BITE THAT THE COLOR YELLOW SHOWS UP IN THIS DREAM ABOUT EMOTIONS
5-30-10 - DREAM - I was managing an apartment building somewhere - probably Milwaukee. I was really tired, but my rest kept getting interrupted, so I didn't really rest and kept getting tireder and tireder.
My little girl, dressed in yellow with with me, and I spilled some red juice on my dress, but quickly wiped it off. Meanwhile, my little girl tore the screen off the window, and I couldn't let it be ripped, so I had to fix it. I didn't have any tape, so I borrowed some from a neighbor. While I was doing that, a young man brought a little boy to my door who was pretty upset about something though I didn't know what. So I got down to his size by bending my knees and squatting down, and took him into my arms and hugged him. Then I put him into my bed to sleep in my place.
While I was in the hallway, I saw IEOSOUS standing next to my friend Dorothy and assumed he was dating her. That was okay with me. Dorothy and I used to sing in the choir together in high school, and she took me shopping to the drug store occasionally because I didn't have my own car. I figured I could go to her apartment and borrow something, and hopefully see IOUSOUS There. That was okay with me. I wanted to borrow a yard stick to measure the screen so I could fix it properly.
When I went downstairs, I couldn't remember exactly which apartment Dorothy lived in, so I went from open door to open door, and while I was doing that, I could hear an all black choir singing upstairs in the last apartment, and I wanted to get closer and hear them.
But the stairway I took to the third floor, didn't go all the way up there, and I had to glide down the stairwell to the 2nd floor and take the next stairway that had smaller steps and go back up.
A couple of men dressed like cowboys saw me gliding down the stairwell and couldn't believe what they were seeing. I don't know if they thought I was an angel or an acrobat, but I climbed back up the next stairway to the third floor.
When I got up there, I couldn't hear the singing anymore. The apartment door was open, so I walked in, and there were several women still inside the apartment.
I said, "I'm sorry I'm late."
One of the women in charge said, "That's the second time you are late. Maybe the next time, you'll arrive on time."
I responded with a simple, "Yes!" and left again.
NOTE THAT THIS NEXT DREAM ABOUT IEOSOUS IS FULL OF EMOTIONS:
