A prayer does not always have to be formal or from a publication. Singing, chanting, dance, art, and drumming are also forms of prayer. Sometimes, I do not use words. I simply sit down in a sacred space and play my harp. The spiritual realm appreciates warm expressions directly from your heart. This is the foundation for your continued connection.
My Sacral Chakra is my dominant energy center. Naturally, it gives me the most issues while dictating the ebb and flow of my life. A spiritual dress was created to bathe it in orange so that it can bask in its natural hue. As I think of it this evening, creativity and abundance come to mind.
Allow yourself to communicate through some form of creative expression or cultivate an important hobby. It does not matter if you share it with others or attain a professional level. It needs to meet your personal needs. Perhaps you enjoyed drawing as a child but life took you in other directions. You could pick it up again in your adulthood. Take a drawing class or buy a sketch book and draw in your garden.
Many people shy away from journaling because they feel as if writing is simply not for them. In the privacy of your own written space, how & what you are sacred matters. There is not going to be an exam or someone shoving an opinion down your throat. It can truly help with dream tracking and showing you your personal life cycles.
It is no surprise that this lower chakra is associated with fertility. Women create life and nurture it as mothers. However, one can be pregnant with things other than children. A constant flow of words may overflow from one person while another can be a source of impromptu ideas that never fail. Once you are able to pinpoint your fertile moments you can also maximize upon this power. You may discover that with deep breathing, you are able to energize this chakra as well as the others which then allows you to smile more often.
You can see the work of this chakra if you observe a connected couple at dinner. They may seem completely oblivious to the world around them because they are simply taken by the sight of each other. The interactions with other people are gentle and without effort. The sense of touch is heightened which is evident in the fact that their hands have never parted. This is the orange energy center at work.
When you sit outside in nature, you may be aware of the wind in your hair. The warmth of the sun may be comforting to you as well. If you taste a delicious pear, you will no doubt enjoy the soft compression of the fruit. The sweet juices will refresh you as you savor the moment. When we get caught up in the frantic mania of life, the little things that make it wonderful are often overlooked. That is when it is important for us to stop. Remember that a breath can change everything. A moment of silence can honor a broken system and return us to the necessary steps of healing. Write an entry in that journal about everything or nothing at all. Take the sewing class. Register for that graduate womens’ studies class. Whatever it is, allow your Sacral Chakra to take its rightful place as your seat of creativity.
