Its been a while since I’ve taken on a post about energy work. But I’ve been feeling called since the beginning of the new year to work with the deep portals of light that are part of our subtle body system and have been having a lot of fun with different elements of the Sacral Chakra. I’m drawn to the womb energy, the flow of intuition of the Divine Feminine, the sacral energy we all carry. I’m fascinated with relationships, the nuance of our human world. And how each subtle shift within our-self transforms those relationships around us.
A quick search on the internet will tell you that the sacral chakra is located in your lower abdomen, about one to two inches below your belly button. It is often glossed over as your all around passion and pleasure center, as it is your sexual and relationship chakra. But the 2nd Chakra is so much more, it contains worlds that connect into your self-expression, intuition and core beliefs that you carry with you from this life, and the genetics of your birth and even threads of collective energy from the world.
Breathing into this space within your body can teach you many things. Most importantly, how powerful you are as in individual. The energy available to you from a healthy sacral allows you to release that which no longer serves you. Helps you find movement and transformation within your physical experience, and transcend your limiting beliefs in healthy (healing) and balanced ways. Because the sacral chakras energy is that of water, it is a Goddess Portal, she teaches the art of flow and flexibility through visceral experience.
When the sacral chakra is balanced, your relationship with Self and others is harmonious. An imbalance in the sacral chakra can bring feelings of numbness, lack of sexual desire, dependency and addiction. It can also bring disconnected from your surroundings and your own wants and desires. Balancing this chakra lessens any of your ‘control issues’ that are carried, allowing you to trust in the divine flow of all things.
Within the Sacral Chakra is your inner child, the one who encountered this tactile, sensual world first. The Child is how you learned to relate to your human surroundings, how you perceived with your senses and made connection with others. The Sacral layers hold your joy for this sensual world, your pleasure in being here. In some it’s where you developed your need to control. Often as you learn to balance the 2nd Chakra, the throat chakra will clear what has been stuck or hidden based on how you protected yourself early on.
How you are today is a blend of what you carry with you. Amazingly, we are perfectly capable of transforming what we carry with us. How we expressed ourselves in the past doesn’t have to be how we continue into our future. The Sacral Chakra is our ‘Well of Power’, fed by how we relate to the world around us. It supports our other chakras, bolstering their health as we balance our relationship with that which truly matters, The Self. Breathe into you Sacral Chakra. Pay attention to what comes up. Surrender into it, neither push it down or cling to its story, be like a river and flow. Find your own experience and take it deeper.
