We all have chakras or energy centers in our body. In Sanskrit, Chakra means a wheel or disk. Chakras are “wheels” or vortexes of swirling energy throughout our body. We have 7 main Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.

The Sacral Chakra is located in the lower abdomen, between the pubic bone and the navel, and is represented by the colour orange. Its element is water. Associated with emotions and reproductive function, the Sacral Chakra is pleasure seeking. A blockage in the Sacral Chakra can lead to both physical and emotional distress such as overreactions, attachments, tension, cramping, fear of happiness or pleasure, and a lack of authenticity or creative expression. An open Sacral Chakra leads to abundant creativity and creation, passion, sensuality and connectedness.

Sacral Chakra Affirmation

 I love, appreciate and honour my body. I am open to experiencing the present moment through all of my senses, passionately and abundantly. I nourish, value and respect my body. I am open to touch and intimacy. I allow myself to feel pleasure. My body is sacred. My sexuality is sacred. I honour my emotions as they are the whisper of my soul. I take good care of myself – my body, mind, spirit – and I am at peace and sitting in love.

Simple Tips for Balancing Your Sacral Chakra 

  • Use the colour orange.  Crystals, lights, clothing, furniture or accessories. Envision the colour orange glowing brightly and transparently in your lower abdomen.
  • Dance the night away.  Dancing opens the Sacral Chakra. Moving your body helps to get your energy flowing. Move your hips, enjoy the music and your body. You can also practice Yoga positions that open the hips or use the lower abdomen.
  • Cut the Chord. Let go of people, places and things that are no longer serving you and your overall health and wellbeing.  Remove attachments, release old junk and make space for beautiful things to fill you up.
  • Find Water. Relax near water such as a lake, beach, river or stream. Stick your toes in to help the energy flow! Baths and showers also help provide relaxation and an opening of the Chakras.

About this 12-part Reiki Series

In this 12-part series, readers will learn about the energy of life, how it affects us, how we can utilise it in helpful ways and ultimately, how to achieve the Ultimate Success in their very own lives: real joy, love and happiness.  I will describe the Chakras (their location, connectivity and more), what energy healing is, and how the Laws of the Universe are at play at all times.  Additionally, I will detail how readers can open themselves to receiving, to flow with life instead of resisting, and how fear and love drive us. At the end of the 12-part series, readers should have a better understanding of their bodies, themselves and how to expand and enhance their experiences.

Next month I will cover ‘The Solar Plexus Chakra’. I hope you’ll join me then 🙂
