The Sacral Chakra is located approximately one inch below the navel.  It governs the energy of creativity, pleasure, sexuality, sensuality, and emotions.  A healthy Sacral Chakra allows us to ‘go with the flow’ of life.  A person with an open Sacral Chakra is passionate, present in her body, sensual, creative and connected to her feelings. A person with an under-active Sacral Chakra tends to be stiff, unemotional and not very open to other people.  If this Chakra is over-active, a person could be emotional all the time.  They feel emotionally attached to people and can be very sexual.

The Sacral Chakra resonates with the color orange and the element of water.  Orange colored gemstones stimulates the energy of this chakra.  Some of the recommended gemstones are Carnelian, Orange Jasper, Tiger’s Eye and Fire Opal.  Healing foods for the Sacral Chakra are fish (especially wild-caught salmon), tropical fruits, seeds, nuts, and orange-colored foods (oranges, tangerines, carrots, etc.)

COMMUNITY

Somewhere, there are people

to whom we can speak with passion

without having the words catch in our throats.

Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us,

eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate

 with us

whenever we come into our own power.

Community means strength that joins us our strength

to do the work that needs to be done.

Arms to hold us when we falter.

A circle of healing.  A circle of friends.

Someplace where

we can be free.
