Third Eye Chakra and a Sense of Understanding

By Millicent Sykes

How do we begin to process the dilemma?

“Should I stay or should I go?”

Always deciding and never understanding the impacts of those decisions

What is love, but a trauma bond

Two souls coming together to attempt to survive in this treacherous world

Where moments of grief have to be shared, with an understanding of the other person’s perspective

It can all become a distraction, if you let it

What is it?

If only they knew how I felt 

Music drowns the sadness encompassing my world 

Mine, theirs, or shared 

When you set the tone you forget you are a part it 

How do we find a sense of belonging when we’re the trendsetter 

“Please don’t leave me” 

Stories, tragedies, comedies, Shakepearans coming alive all to make one thing known

Dreams do become reality… all that is needed is effort and patience

Ebb and flow, recognizing the changing of expectations, boundaries, and priorities

Reminiscing on past experiences and recognizing the patterns, lessons, and potential incompleteness 

Why do we yearn for a sense of control? 

How do we determine our motivators, stressors, and rewards? 

Where do we exit the room dictated by categorized winners, losers, and spectators? 

When do we decide to become our own chief, caption, leader? 

Who do we decide to lead and follow?  

Letting the mind wander without understanding the potential dangers, learning through experience where the fence sits and where insanity begins 

Accepting the triggering effect of an observation and the delve into judgement 

Attempting to decide next stage of action, attempting to avoid indecision and perceived incompetence 

Attaching to what feels comfortable and avoiding the unfamiliar (good, bad, neutral) 

Ebbing and flowing through life, experiences, relationships, and cities until discovering and solidifying what one needs 

Oscillating between protection and growth 

Filtering through the trials of the past attempting to determine the inner truth 

Sifting through the narratives, opinions, and judgements 

Finding yourself again, and creating something new
