VISUALIZATIONS AND EXERCISES TO AWAKEN AND BALANCE THE SACRAL CHAKRA:
#1 BALL OF SILVER LIGHT
In a standing position with knees slightly bent and hands just in front of your navel at about 8” apart, visualize you are holding a ball of sparkling silver light energy between them. As you breathe in and out expand the ball on the inhale and on the exhale bring your hands closer together and concentrate the energy. After 7 cycles bring the silver ball energy close to your navel and ‘push’ it into your body with your hands against your navel. Feel your breath expand and contract and the energy ball inside you increasing and decreasing in intensity. Relax and let your body enjoy.
#2 DANCE WITH THE LIGHT
Light candles and put on music of choice. Imagine inhaling the color of the candles and imagine the music bringing colors into the parts of your body where it is most needed.
Let the music inspire you, especially in those parts of your body. Let your feet dance. When done, allow the stillness to infuse you.
