According to Kalashatra Govina, this is a tempestuous time. Now the developmental task encompasses everything that relates to the themes of the navel chakra; sense of self, control, and power. While they traverses the 7 chakras, adolescents learn to control the various energies that correspond to each of the chakras and to solidify all aspects of their personality. Their peer group, parents, and school often stand in the way of important developmental steps.
In this phase, young people need to learn to take life into their own hands in order to gain a sense of control. It's only natural for them to engage in experimentation with sexuality and love and to open themselves up to other possibilities, radical thinking, and spiritual experiences.
They tried to break through the limitations of tradition and hard and fast rules. If, because of their passion for experimentation, they meet with punishment or neglect, the energy of the naval chakra will become blocked or weak. They made them become door mats or, alternatively, defiant rebels who challenge everything and everyone in order to force their way through obstructions that they feel, if only on an unconscious level.
Young people need room to expand and experience their powers of imagination. If they are given this room, later on they will become valued members of society and their own persons.
Full Adulthood is our next cycle...stay tuned!
