DAY 2 – MARCH 15TH – SACRAL CHAKRA – www.chakra-anatomy.com/image-files/250x268xsacral-chakra-colors.jpg..." alt="sacral chakra colors" width="250" height="268"/>Orange – the sacral chakra color is composed of red and yellow in equal parts and it is a color of vitality and strength. It is at the lower end of the visible light spectrum and it is also a warm color. It reminds me of the heat of the sun. Just as the sacral chakra is located in the pelvic area, orange is the area of our gut feelings and wisdom. Buddhists call this “hara”, the centre of being through which we connect with the deepest voice of the self, the deepest stillness and wisdom. This is where we find bliss. Orange energy is very sensual. Living a life guided by orange color transforms even the most mundane daily experiences into pleasurable experiences. That is not to say that orange is purely hedonistic. Orange is also associated with the gentle and positive nurturing of ourselves which moves us on our path of growth and development. On a physical level orange relates to the colon, bladder, and gallbladder. It is part of the digestion and assimilation.
Orange energy is very powerful physical and spiritual energy. It helps to convert prana (or chi) into energy that can be used by the body for vital functions. Orange energy is balance, strength, and sustenance. It is the building block of physical growth and development. Orange represents the developmental stage when we learn to walk and we explore our world. Orange is a color of shock. It can stimulate us, dazzle, or irritate. But, it must be noticed. On an emotional level, it is a color of great intensity and power. It is also the color of fall and letting go. Sacral chakra color orange reminds us that a part of us must die in order to create space for something new. As I already mentioned under physical level, orange energy is very spiritual because it helps to convert subtle energy (prana or chi) into energy that can be used by the body. So, with orange, there is a very close connection and synergy between physical and spiritual levels. No discussion of the sacral chakra color would be complete without talking about Tantra. I must mention that the chakra system originates in Tantric philosophy. Most westerners associate Tantra only with sexual pleasure. However, the purpose of Tantra is the same as that of any other yoga path – to attain liberation from illusion by moving the energy up the spinal column. And yes, in Tantric practices this movement of energy is achieved by using the force created by the arousal of sexual energy to awaken Goddess Kundalini and pushing her up the spine. And orange color aids in moving this energy. http://www.chakra-anatomy.com/sacral-chakra-colors.html
WHAT TO DO: There are many things that you can do today to assist in balancing out your Sacral chakra. You do everything that’s listed, none of it, or simply pick and choose what your body and mind are resonating with and proceed from there.
MEDITATION: You can simply close your eyes and focus on your sacral chakra. You can add a mudra to your meditation and/or add a mantra specific to this chakra. You can even dress in the colors associated with the sacral chakra which is red and orange. Or go even further and focus on eating foods that are supportive of the sacral chakra. One step further as you are doing Yoga spend a little extra time on a yoga pose which opens and balances out your sacral chakra. Be prepared as you go through this exercise that in order to balance out your sacral chakra many emotions that have been stored in this part of your body may begin to rise. Pay attention to your thoughts as you go about your day, and try to truly tune into the reasons to these thoughts, feelings and emotions being there. Give gratitude for the experiences associated with these emotions and let go of any negative feelings that you may have in this regard. For those of you that need a bit of a visual/audio stimuli I would like to share the following video with you that I feel best balances out the sacral chakra with the sound of Tibetian Singing Bowls.
FOODS TO EAT AT THIS TIME:Just below your navel sits your second chakra, which governs sexuality and emotions. The second chakra’s element is water, so pure water is the best thing you can ingest to clear and heal this chakra. Liquids in general are a good bet, especially transparent liquids like teas and broths, so be sure to keep hydrated if your second chakra is imbalanced. The color of this chakra is orange, so orange foods, especially carrots, oranges, and orange juice, can be healing. Luscious, juicy fruits can also help to charge this chakra, so have some melon, mango, or strawberries for a sacral chakra boost.http://deborahking.com/7-foods-to-heal-7-chakras/

I’m sure by now most of you know that I use Natalya Ankh’s tools in my healing sessions and everyday personal use. Another tool that I love and that works specifically on opening up the sacral chakra is of course THE ANKH KEY – Drunvalo Melchizedek talks about Ankh, as well as Bro Reggie of Secret of Ankh extensively speaks about the Ankh, so if you are interested please look them up. The Sacral Chakra is magnificent and awe inspiring! It manages a lot of very important human functions, and is usually quite developed in most humans living in this ear. This chakra is the center that oversees the creation of life. The Sanskrit name for the Sacral Chakra translates as feminine creative abode or the seat of life or the dwelling place of the Self. It is “located” in the lower abdomen, just below the navel and it is typically depicted as being orange in color. What this tool does is aligns you with your own self helping you to experience LIFE here on earth and integrating your etheric self. This tool is known for activating the sacral chakra and releasing all the negativity in regards to intimacy and sex that is stored in your body, but not only this, but so much more. It also activates your psychic abilities, working on the sacral chakra allowing you to become sensual and be able to attune yourself to the needs of others. Helping you in building strong relationships with others. To learn more about this one of a kind tool please click here.

AROMATHERAPY FOR SACRAL CHAKRA (ESSENTIAL OILS) –
Essential oils for the sacral chakra tend to have a stimulating scent and have the effect of loosening one up – emotionally, mentally, sexually or energetically. They tend to encourage genuine personal expression either through creativity, industry or formation of bonds and friendship. Some of the more common essential oils include:
All of the above essential oils stimulate and open the sacral chakra, loosen or release stuck energy and encourage sensual, sexual or creative expression. Sandalwood is in some ways the quintessential essential oil for the sacral chakra. It promotes positive self esteem and contentment with the self, stimulates sensual and spiritual love and sexuality and regulates hormones and the reproductive system. Clary sage also balances hormones and is an important essential oil for women’s reproductive issues. Clary sage is inspiring. It stimulates the intuition and dream world without disconnecting one from the body.
The citrus essential oils are uplifting and encouraging as well. They help one experience events in a balanced and positive way and transmute harsher experiences that may otherwise fester into debilitating memories and life-long negative patterns. Bay laurel is stimulating, and it also promotes communication of intuitive and imaginative ideas. Patchouli offers emotional support as well as arouses sexuality and sensuality, allowing for a greater sense of security in relationships.
When I think of opening, embracing, liberating and releasing inhibitions, I always think Jasmine. It makes the process of opening up joyful rather than fearful. It promotes love, sensuality and sexuality, creativity, and living in the moment. Jasmine harmonizes and promotes wholeness.
If the sacral chakra issue is mostly about just being stuck, citruses and jasmine create a blend for joyfully opening. If there is a lot of self recrimination, patchouli and sandalwood provide love and support and a safe context for more honest self assessment. Both of these essential oils as well as Neroli could be included in a blend for someone who has experienced physical or sexual abuse as a child. These are all deeper supportive scents. Neroli offers a profound sense of ease. It helps one breath deeply, fill with peace and calm and feel whole. It is such a unique and beautiful note. http://www.starchaser-healingarts.com/essential-oils-and-the-second...
