Moving up into the next chakra: svadhishthana, also known as sacral chakra. Let’s dive right in!
Location: 2″ below belly button
Chakra meaning: The sacral chakra is all about emotions, sexuality, and creativity.
Off balance: Jealousy, guilt, possessive behavior, body shame, depression.
Affirmations: I acknowledge my uniqueness. I am a creative being. I attract only nurturing relationships. My senses are alive, and well connected. I embrace my life with passion and joy. I am a radiant, strong, beautiful, and healthy being.
*tip: I think that saying these affirmations in the mirror is extremely powerful! Give it a try both ways so you can see (and feel!) the difference.
Aromatherapy: Orange, bergamot, clary sage, geranium, jasmine, rosewood. Best used in a bath or shower, as sacral chakra is associated with water!
Foods: Almonds, oranges, pumpkin, mangoes, coconut, melon, papaya.
Nature Element: Water, being in or by water. A bath works great! Sometimes even increasing your water intake is very helpful.
