How To Access Creativity Through Your Sacral Chakra
Creativity is the cornerstone of the human existence and the source of the world’s most remarkable creations. Although, I believe creativity is a gift that everyone has, I also believe that most of us are unable to fully dip into our creative juices because of our preoccupation with life’s stresses.
Our attachment to discomfort limits us from manifesting what we desire in our life. Holding onto stress, fear and old wounds not only blocks our creative genius, but also can produce issues around procreation, abundance and love.
The sacral chakra provides the fertile soil for our cosmic seeds to expand. It's where we learn how to birth and nurture (physically, mentally, spiritually) things into our life. If you are having issues with money, life direction, relationships, infertility or creativity — your sacral chakra may be blocked.
To unblock the sacral chakra, you must start with opening the root chakra. If the root chakra is imbalanced, we have difficulties creating abundance in our life. When we are unable to provide sustenance, feelings of lack, anxiety and fear block the sacral chakra. Working with the root will assist you with removing the energetic barriers that may be blocking your sacral chakra. Once the root chakra is open, working with the sacral chakra will provide you with limitless access to abundance, sensuality, creativity and healthy relationships.
Below are a few techniques you can use to raise your sacral chakra's vibration today:
1. Shake your hips.
The sacral chakra loves movement (especially circular motions). Latin/African dance or other body movements that work with shaking or winding your hips are wonderful for opening the sacral chakra. Another way to use your hips to open the sacral chakra is hula hooping. This can be a fun activity to do with your daughters or friends.
2. Work with energetic healing practices.
Energy applications like Reiki or Pranic healing are great for opening the chakras. Placing your hands over the sacral chakra and imagining a bright orange light radiating from your hands is a simple practice that can be done throughout the day.
3. Use gemstones.
Learning to incorporate gemstones in practical ways can be a fantastic benefit to your mind, body and soul. When healing the sacral chakra, I recommend using orange stones like carnelian, amber or orange calcite.
Moonstone is also a powerful stone to use for the sacral chakra because it's directly connected to the sacral’s astrological ruler the moon (don’t use moonstone during a full moon). Belly rings and chains with orange stones are also an excellent way to balance the sacral chakra.
4. Take a bath.
There is nothing like a warm bath after a long day. I bet you didn't know that taking baths is a excellent way to balance your sacral chakra. Bathing in warm salt water (use sea or Himalayan salt) cuts energetic cords and rejuvenates your sacral chakra. Additionally, adding gemstones to your water will assist in elevating your water’s vibration.
5. Practice tantric love.
While tantra is commonly associated with sex, tantra is also a highly spiritual practice that can be used to raise our kundalini vibration. One of the main components of tantra is breathing (up the spine and through the sacral chakra). Often, Tantra is used while being intimate however, the objective is healing.
Learning to balance your sacral chakra through tantric practices will help you decrease stress, open creativity and enhance your relationships (internally and externally).
