The sacral chakra is the place of sacred creation and action. We create love and life through the union of twosouls. We create art, music, stories and homes by combining elements together in new ways. By living with integrity and honoring all acts of creation as sacred, we can release our fear of the unknown. Judgment and or abuse can inhibit the flow of healthy creative and sexual expression.
The Sanskrit name Svadhisthana means, “one’s own abode.” It reminds us that our ability to create isunlimited, which is manifested through our choices, words and actions. Each moment is a unique opportunityto raise our awareness and create our destiny.
