Painting the Chakras – Sacral Chakra

The second chakra, located in the reproductive area (a few inches below the navel), connects to our feelings, emotions, sexuality and creativity. When off balance we may feel jealousy, guilt, possessiveness, shame of our body/sexuality. When in balance this chakra brings us grace, flexibility, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment and creativity.

The colour of the Sacral Chakra is orange.

The Sacral Chakra’s element is Water so spending time by the ocean, a lake, or a river, taking walks by the water or sitting with it in view, going wading or swimming, is especially energizing for this chakra (drink more water!).

Visualise yourself floating in the ocean during the sun is going down and colours the water in orange.

Repeat as often as you wish with eyes closed the following positive affirmations:

I feel. I acknowledge my uniqueness. I am a sensual and creative being. I attract only whole and nurturing relationships into my life. My senses are alive and connected. I embrace life with passion and feel abundant joy. I am radiantly beautiful, healthy and strong.

Use the power of aromatherapy in a bath or as a body scrub as the Sacral chakra is associated with the element of water. Use any of these oils: Orange, Tangerine, Neroli, Jasmine, Rosewood, Clary Sage, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Geranium.

Food that stimulate this chakra: almonds, papaya, melon, passion fruit, pumpkin, orange, coconut, manadarins, mangos, walnuts, milk, butter, honey, chocolate, pasta

Moonlight also stimulates the second chakra so why not doing a walk in the moonlight by the ocean?
