Dear Lovely Archangel Metatron Tribe,
Today, I am going to share with you how the sacral chakra works with you on a physical and emotional level and how you can recognise when your sacral chakra is out of balance and what you can do to rectify this bringing it back into alignment enabling the body and mind to self heal.
The Sacral chakra centre is one of the main centres that keeps our physical body and our wellbeing healthy. It helps to focus our vital force into making a strong and viable immune system to help us fight off infection and disease. It also controls our emotions and is ruled by the element of water. So when we don’t share our feelings with others we retain water in the body. This creates bloating and puffiness..
It is also the main centre for relationships not only with others but ourselves. So the emotion ‘am I good enough’? would sit in this centre. It governs our sexual maturity and controls our appetites for food, sex and pleasure. It is our connection centre with our parents, lovers, siblings and our children. So like the base chakra it is another big energy centre. Money and Careers will also be part of this chakra as the they do overlap so although this is part of the base money and career will affect the sacral chakra too.
This centre for me was affected when my dad passed away. We had a very close relationship and obviously when he passed over my connection with him as my parent changed forever. This may seem obvious as of course he was no longer physically here but all of the support, love, affection I had from him was gone overnight and this affects us greatly if it is not replaced elsewhere. Of course, we are responsible for our own happiness and all the love we need is within but for me I lost my protector. He would always stick up for me when others did not see the real Michelle. I guess in a way when I look back now he probably stuck up for me and protected me a little too much because now I am having to do this myself and it doesn’t come naturally but is a big lesson that I can do it without him. That I am a strong, independent woman who can survive alone when she needs to. That I am in control of my destiny and I am good enough.
To keep this centre balanced and healthy it needs to thrive on nutritious food, plenty of rest, fun, work and exercise. So as you can see it is not always an easy one to keep in balance.
Relationships are a biggie for us all and with most of us working women these days it is even harder to balance, kids, husband, businesses/career and home life and that is not even thinking about fun and exercise. As working mums and dads it is hard to keep all the sacral balls juggling and it is quite normal to drop a few balls. Whatever happens the mantra for the Sacral Chakra is I AM GOOD ENOUGH.
Physical Symptoms of an Imbalance within the Sacral Chakra
Sexual/reproductive disorders, bladder and aliments connected to the urinary system, aliments in the pelvic area and lower back pain, sciatica, period problems, fibroids, endometriosis, cystitis, prostate problems, lower digestive cramps, IBS, weight gain around the middle. All of these physical symptoms will have an emotional connection so if there is a physical symptom you are experiencing have a look at your emotions as this in turn will be creating this physical aliment or disease.
Emotional and Mental Symptoms of an Imbalance within the sacral chakra.
Emotional signs your sacral is out of balance is emotional overreactions to situations, excessive neediness in relationships, co-dependency, fear of happiness or pleasure, self sabotage, low libido, depression and pessimism. This centre is easily unbalanced and blocked as every harsh word, anger, argument, grief, heartbreak affects this chakra so its important to keep this in balanced using healing therapies, crystals, homeopathy and essential oils.
Keynotes – Courage, vitality, sexuality, confidence, action.
Water is a great element and goes beautifully with the Sacral Chakra as the sacral is about creativity and going with the flow in all areas of our life. Therefore, not taking life to seriously and just staying in the present moment. I can hear you groan here but if you can’t do the present moment just do the present day – so just focusing on today and what needs to be done and then in time you will be able to do the present moment of each day. To help to stay in the flow use the plum Metatron Spray to cleanse and clear the Sacral centre and then visualise the colour of the ocean so a turquoise green in colour and let that colour enter your sacral chakra and just let it wash away all the stuck energy. In the Archangel Metatron range the colour for the sacral is Plum but the rainbow colour for the sacral chakra is Orange.
The colour Plum
The colour Plum is made up of the calming energy of blue and the strong fire energy of red. So for me the plum energy is a mixture of the two and brings a calm but determined energy. It brings with it power, creativity, wisdom, peace, independence and magic. Plum or purple is often associated with royalty, luxury, ambition and power and I would also love to add warmth and love into the mix. So as you can see the plum energy fits beautifully with the sacral chakra.
