Meditation Tip of the Month:  Sacral Chakra

Chakras are energy centers/wheels associated with specific organs.  Balanced chakras maintain good health and wellness.  Chakras transmit and receive energy.  Too much/too little energy affects the way you feel, think and/or act.  The body has 12 chakras of which 7 are primary.  The Sacral Chakra is located at 2” below the navel.  The Chakra is represented by the color orange.  It is governed by the sex gland and affects the following:  pelvic girdle, reproductive organs, kidneys, bladder and all body liquids.  The Sacral Chakra is linked to: creativity, female reproduction, sexuality, new relationships and new experiences.  An unbalanced Sacral chakra can result in female reproduction issues or infertility, sexual issues, kidney dysfunctions, hip, pelvic and low back pain, urinary problems, stomach pains and problems with the spleen, intestines and gallbladder.  When the Sacral chakra is balanced, we feel energized and confident, friendly, charitable, loving and compassionate.  We have increased stamina.  We show an interest in others.  We like and love ourselves.  We have a sense of humor.  We are intuitive and inspired.  There are several things you can do to balance the sacral chakra.  Eat foods that are orange in color, wear orange clothing, and/or carry an orange gemstone.  It is also a good idea to have a Chakra Balancing session to clear negativity and balance the chakra.*
