Follow the Belly
Oh that incorrigible belly. It is a beast. And just for clarification, the region of the belly I’m talking about is not just your stomach but pretty much everything below your heart. It includes the whole region of your no-no parts (haha, I just love saying that), your actual stomach and up to the solar plexus. Other people would identify it with the root chakra, sacral chakra and your solar plexus chakra. Each represents some pretty powerful stuff including, grounding, manifestation, sexuality, creativity, empathy, will power, self-worth, and happiness. Needless to say the belly region is not screwin’ around.
So what does follow your belly mean? It means that you allow it to take you on the journey of a lifetime. You sit with yourself and feel what you really want. You really feel YOU. Feel your power. Feel your sexuality. Feel your drive. Feel your love for yourself. These are not sins. There is no moral judgment allowed when you are feeling you, so feel you!!! We were taught to think with our heads. Ohhhh worry, worry, worry, scarcity, suffering, pain, I’m small, blah, blah, blah. But could you imagine if you sat with yourself and just let it daydream. Open it up and see where it takes you. Brilliance comes from there. Greatness comes from your belly. Follow it. See what it wants to do.
And you can tell who belly people are. They live by their own terms. They don’t take no for an answer. They create their own reality. They howl at the moon. They love passionately. They are grateful of this life. They are secure enough that they don’t need to react. They always have a coy smile on their face because they are just enjoying the ever loving hell out of life. And you know what, I have only recently discovered my belly and mamacita, I am terrified/excited about it. The only time I used to let my belly shine was when I got drunk. It was a time to let wild Bryce out (or as wedding guests, friends, family and co-workers have unfortunately been privy to, Bruce, my alter ego). I loved it because I knew this HUGE lurking powerhouse existed but I was just so damn afraid of the consequences to ever let it shine. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret that I have recently discovered, if you follow your belly, the consequences are magnificent. Let it shine!
Sit with yourself, visualize those areas opening up. Feel the magic, the raw power. If thoughts come in, wash them away. Just keep going deeper into you. And when your belly is opened, trust it and let it lead you greatness.
