In this episode, I share week 3 of my book Light It Up. In the 3rd week of the sacral chakra, I discuss sensual touch and why it is so important in healing the sacral chakra. I will talk about how we can start to explore our own bodies and start to notice how they are physical, emotional, and energetically feeling. I get really honest and real in this episode. Also the assignment for this week is a good one so be sure to go listen!
In this episode, I explore the second week of my book Light it Up! I take you on a journey a little deeper into the sacral chakra. I explain how the planets and zodiac have an effect on the sacral chakra. The sacral chakra is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune and the zodiacs Sagittarius and Pisces. Each having a yin/yang effect on the chakra. The sacral chakra is home to our emotions, creativity, and feminine energy. The planet Jupiter helps us to expand and grow. It is difficult to do this when our energy is blocked preventing us from growing. The planet Neptune rules illusions and creativity. It is easy to see why we are able to create illusions about ourselves so easily. When the sacral chakra is blocked we often have illusions about what we think we are or what we look like. We create barriers and walls that prevent us from growing creatively as well.
In this podcast, I explain that right now both Jupiter and Neptune are stationed in their ruling zodiacs of Sagittarius and Pisces. This means that 2019 is a great year to dig deep into the sacral chakra and heal the trauma that is there. This year is primed for creative expansion and healing. It is also a good time to explore your own natal birth chart and see what you are bringing into this life astrologically.
The activities for this week are to give yourself a massage. The activity of giving yourself a massage is a step towards getting comfortable in your own body. It allows you to start feeling your body and making yourself feel good. This can be uncomfortable at first but it’s an activity you will hopefully grow to love.
The journal assignment for this week is to journal about your emotions. As soon as you wake up in the morning note how you feel. Write down any strong emotions that come about during the day. Notice if you have control over your emotions or if you have trouble showing your emotions. You can even take this a step further and track your emotions with the moon cycle.
There will be a solar and lunar eclipse this month with I will be talking about later this week.
