From the Root Chakra, which I explored here last week, my chakra journey continues with a new creative exercise in the Rainbow-licious Creative Healing Circle e-workshop. Up now to the second chakra, the Sacral Charka (Svadhisthana, in Sanskrit, which means sweetness). It's energy is the color ORANGE. The Sacral Chakra takes us from our most basic needs & existence (as explored in the Root Chakra) and helps us to accept & embrace the pleasures of living--everything that makes life worthwhile. The Sacral Chakra is the house of pleasure, sexuality, nurturing, movement, fluidity, creativity and change--the ability to change what is necessary to fulfill a pleasant and pleasurable life.
Again, using watercolors, pens & collage, I had a great dance with my juicy ORANGE energy! I also created an altar on the corner of my art table to celebrate my time with my Sacral Chakra, having tangible things to aid in tuning into the vibration of this chakra...lighting sandalwood incense, a starfish--the element water is associated with the Sacral Chakra, a strand of citrine gemstones, candles and fragrant jasmine tea to sip between brush & pen strokes. My chakra page is a creative approach to tuning in to the ORANGE energy, really feeling the color vibrations. The double seated figure image is symbolic of enlightened sexual union, sacred sexuality. The roses & butterflies, symbolic of delights of the senses.
Many were the discoveries I made while doing this creative exercise on my Sacral Chakra. A big one is that I feel blessed and coming into a time where the doors of joy, vitality, wonderment, happy experience and fulfillment are opening to me. And that I am worthy of these many blessings & abundance coming my way. That I am enough in who I am right now. That life is sweet & full of gifts. And that I am part of the gifts, for I have much love & abundance to share. I feel better able to make the changes necessary that I've learned while exploring my Root and Sacral Chakras to live better in and with my body, and better able to explore sensual healing to enhance & embrace more pleasure in my life. That I am coming also into a time of really sharing my creative and expressing my inner truth creatively. I am also feeling empowered in saying YES to what really resonates with me, and saying NO to situations & other things that don't.
My collage page, I really had fun with this! This page is all about the BRAVE NEW WORLD of me exploring & expressing my sensuality, my inner Goddess, my embodiment of feminine divinity, and inspiration as I explore more body movement & enjoying being in my body. I am doing some new yoga practice which combines body movement--a lot of hip movement, which I'm finding a great connection with & expression of my ORANGE energy. Suddenly I feel like dancing all the time! Maybe some belly dancing in the future?!
I find it is high time to welcome me home to myself as the beautiful, sensual, sexual being, creative energy that I am! To be more open to the pleasures of the senses, to explore physical abundance. To allow myself to flow into and with pleasure and trust it, enjoy it. My key words/affirmations: LOVE, JOY, ABUNDANCE, DELIGHT, PLEASURE, DIVINE SEXUALITY, CREATIVITY. I am the Beloved. I am all that is abundant, giving and receiving. I am the expression of LOVE and JOY in spiritual and physical form!
