[Excerpt from MMW: The Health of Your Moving Center]
If you think of the Polarities of the Center as the "skin" of the Center where one Pole or the other comes to the surface, and your state of relationship to the Body and your levels of Self-confidence as the blood, then the very deepest core of your Moving Center issues would be your PRIMARY SHAME.
Where you are in your dance with Shame affect everything "above" that.
Everyone has access to each Primary Shame, but the Primary Body Type tends to be the key to one's Primary Shame.
LUNAR - Intelligence - the shame of not being smart enough
JOVIAL - Indulgences - the shame of giving in to the pleasures of life and the body
MARTIAL - Demand - the shame of requiring more than what is obvious or offered
SOLAR - Needs - the shame of needing more than one will admit or ask for
MERCURIAL - Desperations - the shame of expressing what is important for your healing
SATURNIAN - Talents - the shame of not being important or unique enough
VENUSIAN - Appearances - the shame of not looking or being as you are expected, or expect, to look
Matching your Primary Body Type to your Primary Shame can shed light on some of the deepest wounding that you may carry that alters the quality of function for the Moving Center.
If you do not find this at the deepest core of you, it means you have worked hard on this and have transformed it, or you are not looking deeply enough.
If you have worked hard on this, you probably recognize it.
These are universal obstacles built into the Body Types. They are what might best be understood as unique "pockets" in the Body Type that collect experiences quite specific to that Body Type and there comes a point in the life where that pocket gets heavy, and/or must be sorted through and emptied.
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Advanced Body Types]
In addition to a Primary Shame, each Body Type has a Primary Joy or Primary Delight.
This Primary Joy tends to be dynamically tied to the Shame so that if the Joy is blocked or not pursued, the Shame takes over and eventually eclipses all efforts toward Primary Joy. The Body will tend to lock into the Shame as a way to earn or seek Joy, but Shame will always mute Joy.
PRIMARY JOY OF BODY TYPES:
LUNAR - USEFULNESS
JOVIAL - SPECIALIZATION
MARTIAL - SEX
SOLAR - WANDERLUST
MERCURIAL - DEBATE
SATURN - IMPLEMENTATION
VENUS - AFFECTION
