So together we move to the Sacral Chakra. This is a big one!!
For the last few weeks my attention has been on my Root chakra and after consistent attention and regular balancing practices I sense my Root Chakra is significantly stronger, more vibrant and enhancing my energy rather than depleting it. Plus I feel completely safe!! I know that this is a process so 3 weeks of intense focus is just the beginning. The ongoing rituals that I consistently invest time in serve to keep my chakras balanced everyday.
Sacral Chakra where are you……..??
The Sacral Chakra is located in the lower abdomen area or just below the belly button. I think of this location as being between the hip bones. I picture this chakra as a radiating ball of orange light. The healthier the Sacral chakra, the more vibrant the colour orange is. Having awareness of the colour is important because simple colour meditation can be used to balance the chakra anywhere and at any time. Many chakra meditations focus on drawing the colour orange into the pelvis region. I really like to do this in time with my breathing. By simply breathing in orange and intentionally directing it to the sacral area the chakra is balanced. I personally like the timing of taking a breath in and as I inhale I consciously bring the energy up my legs and at the top of the breath I am at the sacral chakra, I gently hold and my exhale is expanding the colour in my pelvis.
How do I remember the colours of the chakras? The are simply the colours of the rainbow in ascending order. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet or shortened to ROY G BIV. I learnt that in primary school and I use it alllll the time.
What are qualities of the Sacral?
The Root Chakra was all about being rooted in the earth, having family, tribal and community bonds that create safety and security here on earth. The energy of the sacral chakra allows for us as individuals to step back from these bonds and assess their merit. It is through a strong sacral chakra that we can identify what our own wants and needs are and peacefully let go what others want for us and focus on what we want for ourselves. A
strong sacral chakra is immune to shame and guilt and powered by inhibition, creative, sexual and individual expression.
Physically the Sacral Chakra connects with the large intestines, reproductive organs, bladder, and the kidneys. When a physical imbalance manifests in these areas a sacral chakra imbalance may be involved.
What are the qualities of the Sacral Chakra?
- Individual Expression
- Sensuality and sexuality
