All the chakras will give us clear signals
when they are out of balance
It's up to us to listen and respond. Meditation is great place to start, yoga too. The sacral chakra will scream loud and clear when she's not happy because you'll find yourself feeling angry, jealous...
When Svadhisthana is balanced... you are happy, vivacious, sexually fulfilled, relationship connections are solid and you experience pleasure easily and without guilt.
Be gentle with yourself sister, to start choose 3 or 4 modalities from above and start there. There is no right or wrong way, pick what resonates with you. You may choose a yoga position for this second chakra, burn some vanilla candles and listen to a 2nd chakra guided meditation. Whatever you choose is what you need. Give yourself this gift and take this time for you goddess, and it will return it's investment 10 fold in your relationships.
What is it for you? Think about this one. Make a list of all the things that you find pleasurable, just you. And DO some!
I love to go downtown, get a really yummy mocha with whip cream (life is too short to say no to whip cream) and walk along the waterfront. Next I go up to my favourite street and window shop. I wander through art galleries, shops, I have spontaneous joyful conversations with others and something magical always happens. When I come home I am refreshed and feeling like I did something just for me.
The relationship we have with ourselves is the most important one to nurture, the rest are reflections of that relationship. If you want your outer relationships to blossom then start with your relationship with yourself and your body. Namaste darlings...
