[Excerpt about Rights from Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (part 1 of 3)]
As you explore your conscious connection to Essence, you will also be heightening your sense of self as a Personality. As you explore your sense of self as a person, you will make more room for Essence in your life. It is a two way street, so to speak.
In exploring yourself on either level, it is important to examine your “rights” as a physical being and your expression of those “rights” and/or the damage or interference to those “rights“.
For each chakra, or Center, there is a basic “right” that the Personality must have tended to fully embody the Essence. We say “embody” as a convenience, as it is actually the opposite. YOU as Personality are embodied in Essence.
You most basic “right”, relating to the Instinctive Center, is your right to exist, or be alive at all. The Right to be Real. This can also be said to be your right to “have”.
Your second Center/Chakra must be examined in terms of your Right to Feel, experience intimacy, and create.
Your third chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to take action, or to make change. Another way to put it is your right to be free.
Your fourth chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to be loved, and to love.
Your throat chakra, or 5th Center, is your right to the truth, whether speaking it, or hearing it.
Your 6th chakra/Center can be examined in terms of your right to perceive, to have vision. This can also be said to be your right to dream, on all levels.
And finally, your 7th Chakra/Center is your examination of your right to spirituality, or your right to “inner knowledge”.
Though we skimmed these, the slightest examination of these areas of your life can be revealing in what Centers/Chakras are not being cared for or possibly denied, thus blocking Essence. They may have also been damaged or imprinted with allowances from other fragments in the life.
The three “lower centers” (3rd, 4th, and 5th) are all the most obvious and easily examined on a daily basis. They are the keys to balancing Personality. In fact, these centers can potentially be examined with a degree of accuracy, at least as a starting point, in your translating your personal Centering in your Overleaves. When looking at your Centering it might be said that your primary centering is the Right you SUSTAIN, while the PART of the centering is the Right you “FIGHT FOR”.
We remind you that Emotional Centering is your right to feel, Intellectual Centering is your right to speak or hear truth, and Moving is your right to act out or make change.
The Instinctive Center is always under examination and use so it is almost always in some form of distortion when without conscious guidance. This is balanced through creating a daily balance among your “lower centers”.
The “higher centers” (2nd, 6th, and 7th) are keys to your understanding your connection to Essence. With examination, if any of these centers appear to be limited or distorted through fear or imprinting, it will be your task to incorporate experiences which fulfill that level of your rights, if you choose.
