In my work and my personal life, i have met many people who have good heart tend to limit their ability of making the accurate discernment. And it is because they mix the two different force that is discernment and judgment. Because of this misunderstanding and confusion, those who have good heart hesitate to apply its powerful energy as they try not to judge others or situations and swallow what they experience within themselves.
But discernment is truly not the judgment. It is the deep intuitive recognition that one can have.
I have heard many times when they come to the point to put their discernment into words, they first mumble “You know, i know i should not judge him but... ” or “I know they should have another positive aspects within them but... ” as if they are judging themselves to clarify what they are capable of seeing what it is , or they are afraid of being reproved by me for their comments, which actually i tell them “what you just said is not the judgment ,you could simply discerned the fact. It is coming from your power and the alignment you have . ”
Judgment and discernment are both governed by solorprexus chakra, that is in the area of gut.
Probably that is what creates the confusion to separate those two.
Both are poweful energy, as solorprexus chakra represent our personal will and power. It is like a sward.
The sward of judgment could hurts the one who are targeted, but hurts worse for the one who raise the sward. It really binds you and makes you addict to find something judge.Our heart get crunched and the shadow of darkness swallow us.
The sward of discernment rips the darkness. The darkness of ignorant and manipulation.When we are ripped our shadow by someone who raise their sward, it might hurt our ego, but our heart becomes freed and we can breathe again. It brings the liberation.
And when we raise its sward whatever the target may be, it strengthens our personal power and sense of self respect.
Lack of self confidence blocks the ability of your discernment, as you wont be able to respect and trust what your gut tells you.
Your true intuitive ability resides within this chakra. More you respect your inner voice, more you become intuitive. You wont hesitate to stand with what you see.
So discernment supports you to choose your life more wisely, to show you what choice can really serve you (or not). It makes you to be independent and strong,it gives you the compass to show you the direction.
At first , you might be not sure to separate judgment and discernment when you hear the inner voice, or you might be scared to have reactions from others for what you say same as i was before.
But you could start little by little. More you get familier with allowing yourself to raise the sward of descerment for guiding you to the creative and shining life, less you become to seek the agreement from others for what you see or say.
You simply rest in your understanding, saying “Yes, this is what i see with the best clarity i have now.”
When i was in Rishkesh, India, there is one night i companied good friends of mine who wanted to participate for the talk of one master. There were hundreds of people gathering in heated atmosphere, sitting next to each other in the hall to hear the master who was middle age Indian man. My friends seemed to eargerly listening each words of the master as many of the pepole were.
The master was speaking about consiouness and spiriturality, and each time he used rhymes ,people got high and the heat of the hall became increased.
But despite all the charms he showed, i was experiencing and seeing clearly so much from my gut of the superficiality of his words and phony presence of him. There were no contents. He was a trickster.
On the way back to our hotels , my friend asked me how i felt for him and his talk. I took one breath to get ready to share my experience honestly and yet try not to invade her experience which may have been positive. She looked into my eyes and listened me without interrappting till i finished, and she said softly but with certainty, “Wow,,, you could really descern.” I loved the word she gave me.
What i loved especially in this experience is that the respect we have shared for each other.I had no intention whatoever to convince her that i was right in my experience and discernment, nor she had the agenda i should have had the same experience with her.
By becoming able to discern clearly in any situations, it may lead you to take the different path or direction from whom you love or majorities, according to what your inner compass shows and beckons you. But you would be able to remain strong and powerful enough not to repress or manipurate its message, even left in alone.
Here comes the difference between aloneness and lonliness.
Judgment makes you lonely, no matter you have companies to do so together with. You would be isolated from yourself, from the whole.
But the aloness stands itself beautifully. You got yourself fulfillingly.
Understand the difference between judgment and discernment and choose the path of empowerment.
Make the right attunment in the area of your solerprexsus chakra and create your life lightly and powerfully.
May your light like the shining sun pervade on Earth.
