Working with the Sacral Chakra

Meditation

Lay or sit comfortably

Close your eyes

Breathe in through your nose

Breathe our your mouth

Long, slow, deep breaths

Imagine roots going deep into the ground

They anchor you to this plane

Imagine orange energy coming up through the ground

Imagine an orange cone going out from just below your belly button in front and behind you ground

The energy slowly goes up your body encompassing you

Imagine the energy flowing through and around you

It is dispelling negativity and brings only good energy

Stay like this breathing long, slow, deep breaths for as long as you want

When you are ready imagine the energy slowly stopping

Focus on your breathing

Bring your awareness back into your body

When you are back into your body slowly wiggle your fingers and toes

When you are fully back into your body slowly open your eyes

Stay where you are for a few minutes

When you are ready slowly stand up

Crystals

Working with your Sacral Chakra you would be best suited to use orange crystals. Hold them in your hands carry them with you, wear jewellery with orange stones in, place them just below your belly button whilst you meditate.

Nature

Walking in nature or on grass without footwear helps ground you. It brings your chakras into balance. Do it regularly to see the difference.
