The Sacral Chakra

Sacral Chakra re-alignment, otherwise known as Svadhisthana.   Located in the sacrum, your Sacral Chakra corresponds to the proper functioning of your sexual organs, and thus your hormones and reproductive cycles. A healthy Swadhisthana opens us up to the development of our creativity, our passion, our joy, and enthusiasm. Given its location, our Sacral Chakra pumps all our energy from our base of our spine to our brains, keeping it young, vibrant, and nourished. Given that function, it’s directly related to our sexual energy and virility. That makes total sense: an open sacral chakra simply means you are able to feel, whether emotionally or physically. It allows us to emotionally and physically connect with others, and generally be open to the world, to manifest our desires, and to ‘let go’.

Chakracise your sacral chakra with pelvic thrustsand circular pelvis movements.  Wide-Angle Seated Forward Bend releases the inner groins and flows blood properly throughout the pelvic region according to B.K.S. Lyengar, author of “Light on Yoga.” I have heard that belly dancing is probably the best physical activity to open up your sacral chakra. Given the pelvic and hip awareness it requires, dancing (and belly dancing in particular) is especially suited to creating emotional and physical awareness of the sacral chakra, our sensuality, femininity, and sexuality. In fact, belly dance was initially practiced for the very purpose of helping women prepare for child birth, it was almost a coming of age ritual allowing young women to discover, love, and appreciate their bodies.  According to the Yoga Journalwebsite, asanas or postures that open the hip and inner groins help to balance the sacral chakra.  Bound Angle is a yoga posture that stretches the inner groins and stimulates the pelvis and abdomen with a fresh blood supply.

Feelings of guilt, addiction, a lack of self-confidence or sexual energy, and control issues may all be signs of a closed off sacral chakra. Specific physical dysfunctions might include lower back pain, sexual dysfunction, or urinary problems. On the flip-side, if you are over-active, overly emotional, or have control issues your sacral chakra might be on overdrive and you may want to tone it down a little!

The Root Chakra

Today, I’m starting with the base of it all, the Root Chakra or Muladharain Sanskrit.

Located at the base of the spine, the Root Chakra serves as the solid foundation of our whole energy system. It links us to the physical world, it keeps us grounded. When it is balanced, it allows us to bring solidarity and support to those around us. It allows us to feel grounded, secure, empowered, centered, and have high self-esteem. In doing so, it gives us physical energy, controls our fears, and maintains our overall health. This chakra stores all our learned or inherited beliefs, our survival instincts, our feelings of security and primal urges.

Any physical activity helps us keep our Root Chakra open. If you’re a Yoga practitioner, Hatha Yoga and warrior poses that keep us firmly grounded and balanced are key to opening your Root Chakra. Any other ‘grounding’ type activity might help, for some it might be something as mundane as cooking or cleaning, for others, going outside and taking a walk.

If you’re feeling lost, alienated, lacking energy, insecure, or feel like you don’t have purpose, you’re root chakra might be out of balance. Physically, imbalance can be noted by lower back pain, anemia. depression, and immune system issues among other symptoms. An overly strong Root Chakra is noted if you are particularly egoistic, domineering, greedy, and/or overly judgmental.

Manifest positive results with the use of Affirmations

1) Phrase them as if they are occurring in the now.

For eg. If your outcome is to become a more confident person, a suitable affirmation might be: ‘I am becoming more and more confident. I am feeling better and better about myself’.

2) Phrase affirmations in terms of what you want rather than what you don’t want.

3) Pick affirmations that resonate with you the most

4) Energy follows thought.

5) Many books recommend that affirmations are repeated out aloud hundreds of times each day. This way is effective too. However, saying them out loud has a deeper impact.
