The word “chakra” comes from Sanskrit and translates to “wheel” or “disk,”.
Chakras references a spiritual energy center within the human body, of which there are seven along the spine, and through the neck and the crown of your head.
There are 7 main Chakras and today I wanted to talk about the second of the seven chakras. This chakra is
located in the midline of your body, about three inches below your navel and is called the Sacral Chakra.
This sacral Chakra is associate with the colour Orange and the element of water.
When this Chakra is aligned or balanced – you feel great! You are passionate, friendly, full of wellness, abundance, pleasure and joy.
When this Sacral Chakra is blocked or out of under active – you feel uninspired and have some emotional instability. You may feel inability to cope with life’s changes and experience a sense of lack of control. There are many ways you can balance this chakra.
One of my favourite ways are to use Essential Oils.
You can simply anoint your Sacral Chakra point with a drop or two of Young Living’s Orange, Ylang Ylang, Inner Child, Sensation or Harmony Essential Oil. These are why favourite ones by far.
Harmony is created to balance all the chakras. Sensation is an amazing blend that inspires self-love and enhances pleasure, Orange is a joyful oil, Ylang Ylang helps to balance the female and male energies – it’s the yin/yang of essential oils, Inner Child helps heal emotional wounds often linked from childhood.
Other ways to balance this Chakra is using crystals such as Citrine, Carnelian and Orange Calcite. Immersing yourself in water is also a beautiful way to clear this chakra and so is doing particular poses in Yoga such as sacred pelvic circles, bound angel pose and cobra.
