Everyone needs boundaries to protect themselves.
Boundaries come in many forms. There are emotional and mental boundaries that you erect to protect your psychological wellbeing.
Spiritual and psychic boundaries are designed to protect your life force.
Financial boundaries, in the form of investments, insurance and savings protect your ability to survive and your capacity to thrive. Financial boundaries also support your physical boundaries; your physical health, safety and security, clothes and shoes that you wear and the roof over your head. The second chakra provides you with clues to your the state of your personal boundaries.
You leave yourself wide open and vulnerable to external forces when you try to live your life without the necessary boundaries to support and protect you.
