The Sacral Chakra

Chakras are just energy centers in our bodies. We use different sources of energy in order to be and manifest in the world. There are several different schools of thought regarding chakras, so I am writing from my own experiences and awareness, not from a specific school of thought.

By paying attention to energy fields, you are sending an intention to yourself and your energy to rise to a conscious level of manifestation. You can then use that awareness and intention to refine your energy fields and become a more conscious creator.

Notice your sacral chakra and see what you can manifest by paying more attention to it. This is the chakra that is in the groin area and in its ideal state, spins clockwise in an orange color. This is where you store information about creativity, sexuality and emotions. It also is where your appetite for things comes from.

The Issues

When the sacral chakra is blocked, people lose their ability to see things in a variety of ways. They are blocked to different ideas about what is going on for them and have a very rigid approach to things. Here are some areas that are influenced by the sacral chakra.

  • The ability to feel in control of your own life
  • Access to diversity and different ways of thinking
  • Sexuality
  • Familial emotional patterns, especial during puberty
  • Social life

There are many indicators of an over active or under active sacral chakra. Primarily you are looking for times when you are overly emotional or lacking emotion. 

The Emotions

Since the sacral chakra is part of what governs emotions, any emotion can be related to the sacral chakra. However, the key to spotting imbalances in this chakra is to look for a lack of or excess of emotions.

Sometimes what will happen with someone who is blocked there is that they will do what I call "fire hose" their emotions. This is where there is an excessive outburst of emotion, caused by a build up of unaddressed issues. Often when someone has this outburst they use it to validate that they can't be trusted with their emotions and bottle things up again. 

Physical Symptoms

The physical symptoms of a sacral chakra imbalance are easy to notice. When it is balanced you feel creative. You have the ability to see your own beauty and the beauty in others. You feel energetic access to your emotions, including the less desirable ones.

When you have an imbalance, many symptoms can come up. Just to name a few:

  • Insatiable appetite for things, difficulty feeling satisfied
  • Hip pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Problems with reproductive organs
  • Issues with fluid in the body including bladder and kidneys

When your body is talking to you about an imbalance though pain or discomfort, give it attention in a loving way. We often try and shame our bodies back into functioning properly. Instead, love it first and ask what it needs. Give it gratitude for holding onto the imbalance and making you aware of it.

You can't make positive changes if you are disgusted with or shaming yourself. First you need to accept yourself and know you are doing the best you can, and then go from there.

The People In OUr lIves

People can plug into our chakras and draw off energy from us. They can do it to us while in our presence or not.

Often people will draw energy from the second chakra because there is a desire for that person's sexual or creative energy. Someone also might plug into your second chakra if they have difficulty handling your emotions or creative intentions.

Your second chakra can also get hijacked by people who want your ideas or want you to apply your motivational space to their abundance space, meaning they want your ideas to make them money. 

The Balancing Act

So how do you balance all this out? Meditation is always a great way to tune into your energy systems.

But if you are not a big meditator, here are some other ideas.

  • Surround yourself with people who are creative and emotionally honest
  • Create time in your day to be creative and reflect on your feelings
  • Eat new foods or cook in new ways
  • Connect with nature and express gratitude for the earth
  • Chant VAM (mantra for sacral chakra)
  • Visualize your life unfolding in new and unusual ways

There are many videos and meditations out there. This one is an interesting one. 

 

Affirmations for the sacral chakra:

  • "I am creative.”
  • "I am allowed to feel.”
  • "I am beautiful."
  • “Life is pleasurable."
  • “Playfulness is easy and regular in my life.”
  • "I trust my desires to be good for me and others."

If you find any resistance to those affirmations, that is also a good indication that your sacral chakra is blocked. Dig in and find out why you are resistant and what you are telling yourself instead.

Happy Balancing. Book an appointment below if you need further assistance with balancing your energy.

My Book Is Here!

I have been so busy that I haven't had time to blog about my news!  I have published a book! Insightful Inspirations, conversation starters with your authentic self. http://bookstore.balboapress.com/Products/SKU-000531426/Insightful-Inspirations.aspx This book is a compilation of blogs, work with others and just general wisdom I have recieved. It is designed to be held in your hand, holding a question in your mind and then open it up to some perspective. I hope to have a card deck that goes with it one day. The artist who did my cover, Stephanie Ingraham with Siyo, will be doing that artwork.

I have to admit that I was pretty nervous to put this book out. Even though I have had it written for over two years, there is just so much exposure with putting this out. I have already found one typo, despite having several proofs and am not sure I like how it printed with the questions on the back of the page. But the gift of this experience is that it is a perfect healing opportunity for my perfection issues! It doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful. That is the amazing gift I will find here, how to just trust and accept my imperfections.

On the flip side, I am even more worried it will do well! :) Fear of success I guess. But part of me worries that I won't have time and won't appreciate the exposure. Again, another amazing opportunity to face my fears and heal. I am catching myself saying "It is just a little book" or "Yeah, no big deal". Wow, who knew I would have such a hard time embracing my accomplishment! I am releasing this issue as well and look forward to whatever this brings.

I have been using the book on my own since I received it and I have to say, I love having it in a format I can hold in my hand. It is so much fun to use! (If I do say so myself.) So I hope you all will take a moment to check it out and find as much value out of it as I do.

Insightful Inspiration

What have you delayed putting out into the world because you are afraid of having it fail? Or maybe you are afraid of it suceeding! What is the worst that can happen? What is the best that can happen? Is it worth the risk?

If you have already faced something like this, share with us. We can all learn from you.

Good energetic hygiene

When people come for a session with me they get an energy bath.  I clean off patterns that are not supportive, foreign energy, other people in your space. Etc. This give people the sense of lightness, ease, and peace that helps them stand in their own power. But it is even more important for everyone to learn good energetic hygiene for themselves. It is like taking a shower or brushing your teeth. You wouldn’t go years without doing that! Yet many of us neglect our energy fields and don’t acknowledge the power it has over how we feel and what we can accomplish.

The problem is none of us were trained to wash our energy. So you might need a little guidance, just to get your conscious mind around what it means to “clean” your energy field. There are books out there that you can get about these topics. There are classes you can take online and in person. The resources are out there and I highly encourage you to use them.

Insightful Inspiration for the week

Establish a daily energetic cleansing technique for yourself and commit to doing it for at least a week. Notice what shifts as you do this. Here are some ideas on what you could do (it doesn’t have to take long). I always encourage you to explore what works for you and come up with your own technique.

Phase one: Grounding

  • Visualize a grounding cord from your tail bone, dropping down to the center of the earth and connecting. Then open up as wide as your hips, making it hollow for full release.
  • Go outside and site in the grass with your socks off.
  • Visualize growing roots out of your butt and your feet, into the earth, feel the roots bringing nourishment back into your body from the earth.

Phase two: Cleansing

  • Visualize a silver shower, rinsing away any energy that is not supporting you.
  • Sit in the sun and take in the warmth allowing it to release any energy that is not supporting you.
  • Rub your hands together and then pull them apart just an inch. Feel the energy surging between them, then use your hands to wipe off any energetic debris.

Phase three: Filling in

  • Imagine a huge, golden sun above your head, calling all your energy from all directions in time back into it and then draining the golden energy into the top of your head, into your entire body and space around you.
  • Feel the spark of divine light in your belly button and allow it to expand and fill in your body and space around you.
  • Notice a source of light above your head, allow that light to shine into your body and the space around you.

Phase four: Shielding

  • Imagine a rose in front of you, representing your energy, just outside your space. Ground it to the center of the earth and let it collect up all the energy of the world and process it for you.
  • Surround yourself with white light.
  • Use hematite jewelry or some other material that represents protection for you and allow it to shield your energy throughout the day.

Share you techniques with us on Facebook. If you have had an energy bath with me, share with us how that helped you in your daily life and give your insights on how your attention to this fact can help you going forward.
