Think (and See) Orange
Introduce subtle to bright shades of orange to your office and home decor to help heal, activate and open up energy flow through the second chakra. Add a touch of warming orange to your wardrobe and maybe introduce some healing, earthy orange tones to your jewelry and accessories.
Meditating on the color orange is another great way to not only heal and activate the sacral chakra, but also improve your focus and concentration.
Unpack Your Bags
Learning to let go can be difficult. Emotional baggage, even if it’s just the size of a carry-on, can weigh you down. Consider journaling or simply talking with a close friend about all that’s bothering you. It’s amazing how much better you feel when you vocalize and let go of repressed emotions and experiences.
Open Up the Hips
The sacral chakra is directly tied to our ability to experience pleasure and express our emotions in a healthy way. Learning how to open and strengthen our second chakra through exercise can also help heal imbalance.
When exploring options for exercises that benefit the sacral chakra, consider yoga.
To open up, activate, and heal the sacral chakra, start with these yoga poses:
- Open angle pose ( Upavistha Konasana)
- Cow face pose (Gomukhasana)
- One-legged king pigeon pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)
- Reclining bound angle pose (Supta Baddha Konasana)
- Half frog pose (Ardha Bhekasana)
- Fire log pose (Agnistambhasana)
