Chakra Sunday! – Sacral Chakra

Chakra Sunday! Tonight is the turn of the second Chakra, the Sacral Chakra and is located in the reproductive area of the body. The Sacral Chakra is associated with creativity, sexuality, and our emotions. When the Sacral Chakra is blocked we can feel guilt and shame, possessiveness, and jealousy. Physically, it can also contribute to fertility issues or low libido.

Sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths. Breath into your pelvic area and try to visualise a orange light emanating from below your naval. With each breath, make the light brighter, until it fills the lower part of your body. Say out loud, or to yourself,

“I feel. I create. I am enough. I am a beautiful, radiant, passionate soul. I attract and nurture only positive relationships.”

This Chakra resonates with the colour orange, so eating oranges, passionfruit, pumpkin, butternut squash, or anything of the bright, vibrant, orange variety will really help if you’re focusing on bringing your Sacral Chakra into balance.

Red Aventurine, Citrine and Red Carnelian are good crystals to have on your person.

So, there you have it 🙂 Enjoy this one, peeps, it’s one of the most commonly blocked of the chakras and, I think, can often reap the most rewards when it is in balance.

Chakra Sunday! – The Root Chakra

It’s Chakra Sunday! …Paying a little attention to your chakras is a vital way to connect with yourself and bring some balance to your mind, body, and spirit.

I’m going to start with the Root Chakra, at the base of the spine, simply because it’s considered the first of the seven chakras and it’s related to grounding. It’s Sunday evening, tomorrow is Monday and we’re so often run ragged in preparation for the new week ahead…Who doesn’t need a little grounding when we feel like this?

Sit comfortably, take a few deep breaths and with each exhale feel yourself become more and more rooted to the spot. Say the following (either aloud or to yourself), as many times as you like or feel you need;

“I am safe. I am secure. I am grounded. I am exactly where I need to be. I have everything I need. I release fear and embrace trust.”

The Root Chakra is represented by the colour red. It can help to visualise this colour, wear it, even eat it (red apples, tomatoes, strawberries…you get the idea) and if you’re at all into your Crystals, try holding a piece of Hematite, Carnelian, Red Jasper, or Smokey Quartz.

If the Root Chakra is blocked, or unbalanced, we can feel fearful, disconnected, and lacking in energy. It can cause problems with the digestive system, the immune system, and create pains in the feet and legs.

Now the weather is warming up, go outside and sit on the grass, it’s the perfect place for this Earth Element Chakra 🙂

Love your chakras, folks! xxx

Just Breathe…

Today I have done little more than just breathe. 

In and out.

Yes, I did a few chores and took care of my family, like every day, but today I am aware that I can breathe.

It seems such a simple thing, and let’s be honest, most of the time we all take it for granted, but what a wonderful and amazing gift it is to be able to breathe.

I am alive. I am breathing. I am grateful.

Love and Light,
