Sexual healing, bring sexy back

bring sexy back

So this month’s intention is to focus on the second chakra, swadhisthana, which means one’s own abode.

The sacral chakra relates to our ability to feel creative and accept change, accept others and new experiences.  Emotional issues that can affect this chakra include a sense of abundance, well-being, pleasure and sexuality.  As it is associated with the water element, it offers us direct access to flow, flexibility and fun.

The physical space that this chakra covers is the lower abdomen, about 2 inches below the navel and 2 inches in.  And, when the sacral chakra is out of alignment, you may experience chronic low back pain, ovarian cysts and other reproductive issues, urinary tract infections, impotence, pain during intercourse, complications with the bladder and kidneys, and other pelvic-lower abdominal issues.

Mentally, blocked sacral energy can be associated with addiction, repressed emotions and lack of creative energy.

As we work with this chakra in mind this month, off the mat, you will address your relationship with both others and yourself.  You will discover you have unlimited creative power.  You will learn how to cultivate a healthy relationships.  You will gain insight into your default reactions and deepest emotions.  With other people, you will learn how to express yourself more skilfully and how to begin setting healthy boundaries.

On the mat, you can use hip openers and forward folds to work this chakra.  Aim to cultivate a sense of fluidity and ease in your lower belly, low back, hips, sacrum and pelvis.

Be creative with how you move, into and within each Pose.

Each day is different.

Each Practice and class you go to is different, because you are different.  The people around you are different.

Let me know how you got on with last months’ Intention, and keep me posted about this month’s.
