Can you feel that? All that yummy creative, sensual, sexual goodness? Well heelllllo there Sacral Chakra!
Ok, so that's not all that this beautiful Chakra is about, but it is the center of your creative expression. Your ability to feel and express yourself physically, creatively and joyfully. I was told by my Guides long ago that the Sacral Chakra and the Throat Chakra are intrinsically connected (as they are both Chakras of expression and truth), how cool is that!
This beautiful portal of pleasure and feeling, governs our ability to fully enjoy our physical and emotional experiences during our time here on Earth. This happens through our desire (in all forms), our feelings, intimacy, sexuality, sensuality and pleasure. Shortly after birth this Chakra is activated to connect us with our world of sense, expression, passion and feelings.
Here are the basics:
Name: Sacral Chakra
Sanskrit Name: Svadhisthana
Color: Orange or Orange-Red
Location: 2-3 inches below naval (or ovaries in women, testicles in men)
Associated Stones: Carnelian, Amber, Sunstone, Orange Calcite, Citrine
"I Feel". Say it out loud focusing on your portal of expression, your Sacral Chakra. Feel it deep in there. Use all of your senses to connect with this energy vortex in your body. What does it feel like? Is it warm or cool. Is there a texture, a vibration or hum? While it is an energetic portal, try to feel it in your physical body and see what comes to you as you sense and feel it's presence.
This Chakra allows you to feel transformation and change as it happens in your body. The passion that lives in this center is the driving force behind all of your creativity and embodies how you experience the world through your feelings. This is the place from which all fertility originates.
How can you tell if your Sacral Chakra is blocked or closed or over-stimulated? Are you co-dependent or in a co-dependent relationship? Addictions? Are you uncomfortable in or disconnected from your body? Are you pleasure stunted? Do you resist change or new ways of doing things? Do you feel you are creative but can't bring it into form? Are you manipulative? Compulsive? Uncomfortable with your sensuality?
Now how can you come back in touch and harmonize our Sacral Chakra?
Create! Just bust through the block! Take a belly dancing class or any kind of free dance. Be in water. Use your touch and connect with it in textures, colors, etc. Run through a field of flowers or bring flowers into your living space. Do something child-like, fun, wild and expressive. Take a painting class. Anything that opens you up to a sense experience or uninhibited movement or expressing your feelings, this will help to bring you back in alignment with your Sacral Chakra and harmony to this energy center.
"I Am creative and continuously inspired. I Am in harmony with myself and the flow of life and rhythms."
