23. Sacral Chakra – Reproductive System – Primary Chakra
The sacral chakra is located within the reproductive system of the physical body. This is the place of sacred creation. We create love and life through the union of two souls. We create art, music, stories and homes. By honoring the act of creation as sacred to life we pause to reflect and give thanks for all. When judgment is placed on creativity, we restrict the flow of creative expression. This creative flow is vital for a vibrant healthy life. Our ability to create is unlimited. It is expressed through our choices, words and actions. Each moment is a unique opportunity for creative expression.
Message: Be aware of the choices you are making and the life you are creating. Let go of all fears or judgment that may be holding you from expressing your true self. Start a new routine that pleases your senses. Relax your body and allow yourself to flow and feel passionate about life. Release all judgment and allow yourself to go with the flow.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” – Lao Tzu
