BALANCE 4: "The Sun-Bottle-Sunlight"
Shakes Together As: Golden Yellow
Chakra: Solar Plexus
Tarot Card: The Emperor
I Ching Sign: # 4, "Youthful Folly" Mountain above, Water below
Main Theme: Wisdom and joy through inner knowing. Yellow/gold can shine the light on our less conscious reactions and habits, bringing greater awareness to mechanical responses.
Dominant Characteristics: Combines his/her talents with joy and strength, knowledge and wisdom. The possibility to realize a vision. Sees the funny side of life, has a lot of humour. This person knows that it is more valuable to know through experience than to know about something simply with the intellect.
Possible Challenge Aspects: A great lack of joy in life. Can be nervous about many things in life, no matter how small they are. Very deep irritations.
Spiritual Level: Helps to establish contact with inner tuition, inner guidance and deep wisdom. May bring about "solar" awareness. The need to find the light within.
Mental Level: This combination can be good for those people that must think everything through, and therefore search deeply for the wisdom within themselves. Metaphorically speaking, it is the sunlight we so badly need after the depletion of winter, during convalescence or other challenging times.
Emotional Level: Can provide safety, joy and laughter and a certain lightness in life.
Where to Apply the Substance: At solar plexus level, in a wide band around the body.
Affirmation: I am safe. I know that I know nothing.
