Day 1
The Basics

The Sacral Chakra is the pleasure center of our being and is located just below the belly button in the lower abdomen area. It allows us to experience life through our feelings and sensations. When it is healthy we feel creative and not afraid to express who we are through our emotions, desires and sexuality. We are confident in our own bodies and not afraid to show it.

This chakra embraces our energy surrounding creativity, unconditional love for ourselves and others, and the feeling of “to feel”. It’s all about emotions, desire and passion. The spiritual lessons within this chakra are creativity, manifestation, honoring relationships, learning to “let go” and emotional connections. The challenge for this chakra is guilt.

The aspects that are stored within this chakra are that of duality, magnetism, controlling patterns and emotional feelings of joy, anger and fear.
