The Sacral Chakra…

Friday, June 22, 2018 Noon

The Sacral Chakra…referred to as the Second Chakra
or Svadhisthana in Sanskrit..

It is located below the navel in the lower abdomen…

It is the centre of Physical Reproduction and Spiritual Creativity …
as well as “Physical Movement and Spiritual Emotion”…

Mentally-Blocked “sacral energy” can be associated with

Physical & Mental Addictions…

Repressed Emotions & Lack of Creative Energy…

In Human Anatomy, the Sacral Plexus is a “NERVE PLEXUS” … which provides “motor & sensory” nerves for the posterior thigh, most of the lower leg & foot & part of the pelvis…

It is part of the lumbo-sacral plexus
& emerges from the lumbar vertebrae & sacral vertebrae (L4-S4)…
Sacral plexus – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacral_plexus.

2. How to “explore, mine & inquire”… into the nature of Creative Energy.

What is a chakra? How do they work?
Is it possible to “free up more creative energy”… by diving into the chakra system?

Chakras are “energy centers-nexuses” within the Body, Mind & Spirit”….

Along the length of the spine is an “energetic spine”…an astral-(star)spine……

In which the Physical Human Body is said to have a “Spiritual Counterpart”…​
That spans from the Tailbone to the Crown….

There are Seven main chakras that govern “different aspects
 of the Physical, Energetic & Mental & Emotional body…

The chakras are said to be like “Whirlpools of Energy”…
They’re always in motion and (even when sluggish),
like the Mind & Brain…their movement never truly ceases …

Not unlike most other things in life…
Chakras can fall “in and out” of balance…

3 …What is the Sacral Chakra?
The Sacral Chakra…
Referred to as the Second Chakra is located below the navel in the lower abdomen…
(or Svadhisthana in Sanskrit)…

It is the Centre of Physical Reproduction and Spiritual Creativity ….
as well as Physical Movement, Mental (thought energy)
& Emotions & Spirituality…

Not unlike the​ Sea….
(U2 … “Every Breaking Wave”… “Are we so helpless against the tide”)?

(Intentional)“Take-Turns” ​communications
CREATES…​”RELATIONAL​ CONVERSATION​” of “secure attachment”…(Alter-Ego)…
As opposed to the “Insecure Attachment” Ego……
Not “in-tuned” to Respond to​ OTHERS..…
Unresolved ….like a Dangling participle…

When RELATIONSHIPS are ‘in sync​’…
due to (“secure attachment”…Alter-Ego)…
One is likely to feels “connected” to SELF & “OTHER”….

Creative energy flows freely & abundantly
& both physical Sexual appetite & Spiritual appetites … seem to be healthy​…

The Sacral Chakra is your “passion centre”… (both Physical & Spiritual)…

It is the place where …“Physical – Sexual” Identity
& “Spiritual – Creativity” Identities are BORN..

When it’s “not in balance”…
One may feel disconnected from your body or emotions…

Unable to express ones creatively “mentally or sexually”…

This may also make one “feel unable” to express emotions fully….

Repressing” them in an “Unhealthy” CHOICE​…

Chakras are not “made of stone”…
It is a “Free Will” choice …
& THOUGHTS may be “Willed to be made of stone”…
If the Mind… “THNKS IT SO”…
Thoughts create Reality…Always ‘CHOOSE TO THINK POSITIVELY’…

It is possible, through awareness (using Free Will & Impulse Control)

By using the below​ practices…to connect more deeply & to bring balance to the sacral chakra…

15-Minute Daily Practice To Align Your Sacral Chakra…

1. Focus
In a simple seated position, bring the palms to the low belly … just below the navel.
Bring focus to this space by experiencing the sensation of your palms against your abdomen…
Imagine a beautiful lotus flower with a white crescent moon at the centre
or the “waves of creation”… washing over …

Allow this visualization to “soften your thoughts”.. draw all of the ​awareness​ into this space.

2. Breath

Next… Direct breath into the “Sacral area”…​

Let the inhalation “expand it open”…
While the exhalation “releases the stagnant”…

Refresh… like the Breaking Waves of the Sea…
Release pent-up or “overly intense” energy…

Whether already in balance, a little sluggish or in overdrive…
This “focused breathing” will bring balancing energy into this space.

Feel how the connected breath-work … allows peaceful rest …
Settling down of the Mind & CNS…
An integral part of harnessing mental-(spiritual) creative energy.

3. Mantra
As the mind is settled … one can begin to chant…
Om Vam (pronounced Vum). ..Vam is the “seed mantra”…
That “reverberates” this chakra. ….

Say the Mantra & Pay Attention…
to what feels intuitively right …

Does it feel good to sing slow & soft or better to sing loud and strong?
Whatever “feels right”… is the perfect direction to explore.

It might be hard at first to sing “out loud”… but don’t give up.
Listen to the messages of the body​ & mind…
Allow to Be “mentally guided” from WITHIN…
(another key element in authentic creative expression).

4. Movement
“Let the mantra eventually settle”…
Then transfer the energy by doing “swirls of the spine”,
Focusing on engaging and releasing …
(like the waves of the ocean) to the lower abdominal muscles.

These can be flowing “unstructured movements”…
Where one plays with depth & range of motion by placing awareness …
on the space of the sacral chakra.…

Let INTENTION be a gentle … but DIRECT the “stirring” & “release of energy”…

This helps​ to increase the energetic circulation to this part of your body & mind (CNS)…

5. Meditation or Just say a Rosary…
Eventually, the movement can settle.
Sit or lie in meditation…
Using any of the above tools to find connection & focus.

Watch the flow of the breath​… ​ ​”In & Out”…
or quietly allow the mantra to wash over … in the Mind. ..

Visualize the energy in the “astral” spine moving freely
(in & out)…Let the Waves “wash over & back”…
& easily, healing & balancing the “flow to the Creative Centre”…

Fifteen-minute practice every day for one week, to start…
Extend the length of the practice…
Carve out an extra fifteen minutes for creative expression. …

Dancing, drawing, painting, cooking or writing poems or music…
Whatever strikes creativity begins to emerge… Capture & use it to create new

After a period of exploration​…
Reflect on how these practices helped to “cultivate creative energy”…
How was saying the mantra?
Was there new freedom in the meditation?
Was it tricky or fun?

We are what we believe we are.
C. S. Lewis

I love science, and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awed by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and reinvigorate it.
Prof. Robert Sapolsky, Stanford University
