Oh fuuuuuck…the big 3 of every relationship (we’ll talk about communication with the throat chakra…although, you’re probably starting to get that it’s all fucking connected). The Sacral Chakra is located just below your belly button, is orange in color and gives us information in regards to our emotions, sexuality, and creativity. I’ve read many times, that it is a frequently blocked chakra for women and it makes total sense, but through my journey as a Twin Flame, I can tell you it’s an off balanced chakra for men, as well.
A huge part of spiritual awakening, is healing and healing is all I have been focused on for the past year…I admit, I was carrying a ton of shit and when I began this journey to self, I had no fucking clue just how much shit there was. Our journey as souls, having a human experience isn’t a straight path and as it spirals lessons and healing that have not occurred will continue to come back. We also bring into each life the shit from our past lives and our ancestors. This is where I am in my journey, past life shit and how it connects to the present. A lot of my guidance, is telling me that it is imperative to heal these ancient wounds in order to move fully into the future, so that’s where I’ve been focusing, always following my intuition and Divine team of ascended masters, spirit guides and angels.
So, the Sacral chakra…as feminine energy in a woman’s body, there is little doubt that this little sucker needs to be attuned frequently. When the sacral chakra is blocked feelings of shame, guilt, lack/fear of intimacy and low sex drive/self esteem/worthlessness take over. These are feelings I’ve felt my entire fucking life, sexual abuse, harassment and relationships with emotionally constipated/narcissistic men have been common patterns in my life. Shit, not only with men, but women, as well. Growing up, my mother made me feel shamed and guilt on a daily basis and I continued to carry these feelings into adulthood. I now understand that these feelings were not my own to carry, they belong to the people who projected them onto me. This is common with Empaths, we are magnets for the hurt and when not aware of how we filter emotional energy, we absorb. Not to say that I’m completely innocent here…I’m not perfect and have had my own guilt & shame over choices I’ve made, including my sexuality and inability, at times, to be vulnerable in my emotions, out of fear of hurting others. Some of these feelings have been put there by our fucked up patriarchal society, that dismisses the importance of our emotional intelligence. Simple things are society has been programmed to believe, like the word homewrecker.
a person who is blamed for the breakup of a marriage or family, especially due to having engaged in an affair with one member of a couple.“she was accused of being a homewrecker”
This is the first definition that pops up in Google…I’m okay with the fact that it says person in the definition, but look at the example sentence…have you EVER FUCKING heard anyone call a man a homewrecker? Just this simple word BLAMES women for ending a relationship…I call BULL FUCKING SHIT. I know this is a very small example, but you all can think of a million more surrounding us everyday. Here’s the thing though, this patriarchal programming hasn’t helped men either.
I can’t think of 1 man I know that is emotionally mature, who is capable of being vulnerable and openly communicating their feelings. I don’t blame them though, I blame the systems, the programming that has us all fucked up. There is a gross invalidation of feelings that begins at birth with our boys. As a mother of 2 boys (15 and 4), I have experienced this and it breaks my fucking heart. As a teacher, I have seen it in boys as young as 5. How many time have you heard/seen someone tell a little boy to “Man up”, “Don’t be a Pussy, Crybaby, or the best…little girl”? These common statements teach boys 2 things: 1. Your feelings aren’t important and 2. Girls, because we are emotional energy, are weaker, lesser somehow (ladies, we are born feeling worthless). In my journey, I have come to learn the importance of Equanimity: the balance of mind, body and spirit…the balance of thought, action AND FEELINGS…as within, so without, right? We must start understanding and teaching that the thoughts that drive the action begin with…yup, going to say it…YOUR FUCKING FEELINGS…when they are not aligned is when shit starts to go downhill.
Everything is about balance and chakras can be overactive, as well. When that happens, you will find someone who is over-emotional (old Me for sure), fixated on sex, manipulative and/or unable to relax, to flow and just enjoy life at every moment (I’ll own this one as well). I was always called too sensitive, or overly-emotional and I was very much, as an adult, someone who had a hard time relaxing, being present. Mindfulness practices to be present were one of the first things I began working on over a year ago. Simple things, like just stopping & breathing, giving thanks for little things, like a hot shower. At first, I had to work at reminding myself to do this. Now, it’s automatic. The practices I’ve talked about (meditation, yoga, etc.) have also taught me I am not my emotions and although every emotion is valid, I no longer attach myself to them. I acknowledge, accept and release. I no longer am reactive when certain emotions, that used to be triggers, come up and I am able to see when others are projecting their emotions. Pretty powerful shit, y’all. I have also come to realize how fucking sacred my sexuality is. I have my Twin to thank for that. It is also sacred, and this have fucking frightened the shot out of the patriarchy since the beginning,because, we as women, are the ONLY ones who can connect the Spirit world with the Physical world, through the ability to give birth. With great power comes great responsibility, thanks Spidey…my beautiful Divine sisters, it is up to us to find our balance within, to bring forth the balance we so desperately want to see in the world.
As always, I look forward to questions, comments and emails about any of this stuff I am writing about, as well as, Tarot reading/healing sessions. I will post chakra information on our FB page, Oh My Goddess, and hope you will check it out, like and follow.
Peace, Love and Light
P.S. The colors of each chakra are important to note. You can do lots of little things to bring balance to chakra by eating foods, wearing clothes, etc. of the color associated with each chakra.
P.P.S Sacral chakra affirmations can begin with “I feel…” and “I create…”
