“I release the feelings of guilt that are holding me back and know that I deserve to feel pleasure. I now open myself up and am receptive to the feelings that will bring me pleasure and joy. I allow myself to feel.”
The Sacral Chakra is the energetic hub housed within our physical body that sorts out the emotional and mental charges in relationship to our appetites, desires, pleasure and creativity. When our Sacral Chakra is blocked we often deny ourselves pleasures in life, and in some cases engage in emotional eating. These things tend to kick in when we seemingly aren’t looking. We simply start craving, without realizing that what we are craving isn’t housed inside the bag of Lays. What we are really longing for is love, connection and validation. This week we are being called to reflect on a few thoughts:
What would my inner child like to do?
Do I allow myself to feel pleasure? If not, why not?
Am I open to my own sensuality and sexuality?
We can journal these responses, or just reflect upon them to give us insight into our own emotional and mental health around what we truly desire in life. Where are our needs being met? Where are those needs being ignored? Let us take inventory this week and grant ourselves permission to engage in the pleasures of life.
