It is interesting to note you chose the 2 items that you felt were wrong and you gave this whole process a thumbs down based on those
under-active numbers. You, also, chose to interpret them your own way.
My results said that the Root and Crown were my under-active Chakras. I used them as examples because, according to the test, those are the two areas
which I need to work the most at, in order to open them up further. I didn't arbitrarily pick them, or single them out because
I felt they
were wrong. I did so because the test indicated they were where I ought to spend some time opening the way for developing energy.
You said so yourself, that there are situations you would not necessarily feel welcomed...[SNIP]...Not that you would be fearful of anything,
just not comfortable in certain surroundings.
The final statement I made concerning the Root Chakra partially addressed this. If a perfectly opened Root Chakra is someone who never feels fear,
nervousness, or unwelcome anywhere they go, then I stand by the belief that a fully opened Root Chakra removes all personality, identity, morals,
values, and ethical codes of conduct.
If an under-active Root Chakra comes with signs of feeling unwelcome, then a fully opened Root Chakra means you feel welcome and at home
. Visiting a street gang makes you feel welcome. Hanging out with terrorists, murderers, and thieves makes you feel welcome.
Feeling unwelcome is a part of being human. Discernment, judging a situation for its ethical or moral implications, and its benevolence are all things
which human beings have developed for a reason: it helps us identify safe situations from dangerous ones.
Yet, the "what does this mean?" link suggests that such discernment, feeling unwelcome in a situation, is a result of an under-active Chakra.
I think you could take the test again and this time try to not be so definitive one way or the other, there are many questions that if answered
to the extreme one way or the other can alter the results.
Why lie and say I'm not as certain of myself as I am? So many spiritualists espouse "knowing thyself" as a tenet of their spiritual school. Yet...
anytime someone does
know themselves, said spiritualists get all huffy, as if the act of knowing yourself simply cannot be completed.
Life completes it.
If you take into account everywhere you have been in life, and everything you have experienced, then you do know yourself. You know your limits, you
know your hopes, you know what hurts your soul, what feeds your ego, and what drives and motivates you day-to-day. Looking back and asking yourself
"what did I do when X-thing happened?" can really help one to "know thyself".
I know myself.
I know when I am dead-confident for, or against a thing; and I know when an avenue is one where I don't have enough experience yet to comment.
Lying to the test won't change that.
The crown being under active does not mean you are not spiritual, it simply means in the results that you answered questions to the degree it
felt you were not active enough, now, when you took the test, it doesn't mean this is how you are all the time. That is why I say being definite
affects the results.
If it is under-active, you're not very aware of spirituality. You're probably quite rigid in your thinking.
Emphasis added by me.
What, aside from "you're not very aware of spirituality" can that phrase mean? It doesn't say I'm discovering spirituality, or learning to be
spiritual. It says I'm not aware of spirituality, of spiritual themes, ideas, worldviews, and ideologies.
As I said in my original reply: I'm part of a group who are seeking to achieve cross-continental spiritual synthesis. We're trying to bring people
of diverse spiritual ideologies together so that a larger, holistic spiritual system might be developed.
So, how am I "not aware of spirituality?" when it is pretty much my profession?
Thanks for the reply, and I understand why people hope for these quick "take an exam, find your spiritual center" things to be real. I'm always
game to try them. But I've been on this road long enough where I know myself, my limits, my hopes, and what it is that motivates me. When I take
these tests, I approach them with a critical eyes, and won't settle for some two-bit dime-store generalization.
Maybe for someone whose never meditated, never "drawn down the Moon", worked a psychodrama, or participated in an Hanblečeya
this test is
I stick by my stance though: it didn't help me.

P.S., of course my Throat Chakra is open wide. Why do you think I chose the screen-name I did? Writing is just another way of speaking.
