[Excerpt from MMW - Jun 18, 2016 - 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. ...
Everyone has access to each Primary Shame, but the Primary Body Type tends to be the key to one's Primary Shame. ...
MERCURIAL - Desperations - the shame of expressing what is important for your healing
[Note: See the original session for a list of Primary Shames for each Body Type]
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. ...
[Babylove] Michael, can you elaborate on the "desperations" for the mercurial bodytype?
Desperation is the shame of not just needing to ask for help, but needing help at all. Mercurial shame will put on a brave face, pretend he is doing things that are healthy, healing, and actually believe these things are helpful, but it will not address the shame of being the one who needs to speak up and admit to failure, to surrender, to ask for comforting.
It goes very deep in this regard. It is often far below the surface, in the "bones" of effort, in the endurance and pride and push forward.
It can show up as shame for asking for help, but it can go much deeper into realms that seem to have no voice or obvious form. In any case, it is the DESPERATION that is avoided. Mercury does not want to be desperate.
It is not so much in the need, however, but in the Expression of that need.
For example, one may need special conditions for sexual pleasure, and rather than address this with a mate, sexual pleasure will either be diminished or avoided.
