The second Chakra is often referred to as the “sacral” chakra because it is located in the sacral plexis area of the body, (a network of intersecting nerves serving the pelvis, buttocks, and genitals). The colour associated with it is a rich orange. When the energy is flowing in this area one knows their own creative powers and sexuality.
The following meditation may be useful in unblocking and enhancing the energy in this chakra
Colour meditation for sacral chakra
Sit upright in a comfortable chair, feet flat on the floor and hands open in your lap.
Close your eyes, breath in deeply, imagining your breath reaching every part of your body. As you breath in feel any tension melting away.
For the next 2 – 3 minutes as you breath in imagine you are breathing in the colour orange. Feel it infusing your body with its creative energy. On the exhale imagine stale energy leaving your body.
For the next few breaths, imagine a ball of orange energy about two finger widths below your belly button and as you breath in, sense the sexual and creative power in this area of your body becoming focused as the orange energy shines more clearly. As you breath out sense your body releasing anxiety and muscle tension.
Spend a few breaths (maybe 2-3 minutes) sensing what is going on in your body and your mind. If disrupting thoughts enter your mind, just let them go and refocus on sensing the energy. Don’t worry if other thoughts keep coming up, just let them go and refocus on feeling and sensing without words. Be patient 🙂
