Chakra Helper: Sacral

Chakra Helper: Sacral

Chakras are energy centers in the body that hold secrets for
living our lives in more whole and balanced ways.

The SACRAL CHAKRA connects us to pleasure, appetite–our appetite for sexuality and our appetite for life–and emotional empathy. Located in the lower belly midway between the navel and the genitals, the sacral chakra is sometimes called “the seat of life.” The Sanskrit name for it is Svadhisthana, which means “sweetness.”

Try this simple, very comforting exercise to help you feel more balanced and fully connected to your Sacral Chakra:

1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and knees relaxed. Close your eyes.

2. Bring your hands to your lower belly. Begin to shift your weight from foot to foot, making a gentle, comforting rocking motion. As you rock from side to side, begin making small gentle circles with both hands on your lower belly.

3. Continue doing this as long as you need to. Then open your eyes.
