Welcome to the luscious, creative energy of the sacral chakra where our sexuality and sensuality resides. It is in this chakra that our sensory experience of the world is amplified and our deeper, more loving acceptance of our bodies is held.
The sacral chakra governs our ability to give and receive pleasure and enjoy the pleasures of life. It calls us to touch, smell, and taste, and fully enjoy the physical world we live in, and to adore our bodies for the sacred temples they are.
Our creative juices come alive in this chakra, whether we are gestating or giving birth to new ideas babies - new projects or a physical baby. This chakra provides the opportunity to embrace, nurture and care for these ‘babies’, ensuring they are nourished.
How often do we neglect the inner call of our creative selves? How often do we take heed of the creative urges that compel us to facilitate the alchemical process of creating something from nothing? How often to do we shut down the lightness and playfulness of our inner child and our capacity for childlike curiosity and as a result diminish our capacity for joy, creativity and discovery?
It is through this chakra that our sense of boundary becomes developed and we are able to understand what will enhance and enrich our lives. From this centre we create life, we develop relationships, and move freely into the material world.
Looking at our attitudes about sensuality, sexuality, ease, abundance and pleasure helps us mature and become our own person. The more we know ourselves, the less we are at the mercy of media marketing designed to make us feel we are somehow lacking. When we know what delights us and gives us joy and peace, then buying something to make us feel “good enough” becomes less attractive.
Pleasure helps us sustain a peaceful and joyful life, rich in wisdom about the simple joys of life. The more we develop attitudes that allow us ease, joy and pleasure, the more energy we have for doing the difficult chores and tasks.
The qualities and life issues the sacral chakra is concerned with include: opening us up to a realm of health, wellbeing, pleasure and abundance; honouring our physical bodies; giving us the opportunity to love life more and to project that love of life into everything. Ultimately this is about knowing that who you are and what you do are enough; and not linking your self-worth with what you do or have; and about creating healthy boundaries to protect your vital life force.
