Today we are focusing on our crown chakra- or higher-minded thinking. The type of thinking involved with the crown chakra is one without any human worry.
We all have skeletons in our closet, shadows that follow us- stories from our past. It is important, to be honest with yourself about the weight this darkness has on your shoulders. I am going out on a limb here and using a video game analogy in explaining why it is important to release darkness we are holding onto. What better game to use than Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If you don’t know me, ~welcome, my name is Laura and I tried to walk down the aisle to the Fairy Fountain song, name both of my daughters Zelda and would like to have a son named Link- moving on~
In the Water Temple, there is a mini-boss battle. You go through the door and once you take a step the door is blocked off behind you. The scene is ominous as if the door situation didn’t give it away. There is a building of sorts in front of you, with one lone tree in the middle. Interestingly enough, the ground is like a puddle. As you walk past the tree, towards the building you realize the door is locked. As you turn around, your enemy awaits next to the tree. It is Dark Link, your enemy is yourself.
The music starts, the battle has begun. No matter where you go, he is right there. Every move you make, he copies. You use your sword, yet he’s copying your every move. The only way you can successfully beat Dark Link is by using Din’s Fire which is a symbol of power (the ability to gain control over the situation). Din’s Fire surrounds you and then releases over the enemy. Once you have beaten Dark Link, the illusion is gone, and the room returns to its normal state.
This scene is so profound. What if instead of trying to fight the darkness we carry, we learn to acknowledge it. You have the power. Face your shadows, face them head-on. You will soon realize, they aren’t as big and scary as you thought they were.
