Week two: chakra exploration.
Week one is done and over with! I learned some fun things (chakra animals!), I created a few things, and I connected to my roots and nature. I may have overconnected, but ya know what? I can live with that. I loved trying to connect myself to this chakra in everyway I could. I look forward to doing the same with this next chakra. I purposely haven’t looked farther into the other chakras because I want to go into all of them mostly blind and I want to focus all my attention on the chakra I’m working with for the week. So I am very curious to see what this week will bring.
Svadhisthana. “One’s own seat,” or “the dwelling place of the self.” This chakra is all about creativity, sexuality, and emotion. It’s color is orange and it’s element is water. I know that cedarwood is one of the scents associated and I can only imagine that orange would be as well, but it might not be, I really don’t know. But if it’s not, why not?…. Orange foods obviously are good to eat, as well as sweet fruits, I believe. I just know I’m gonna have fun with this one and I can’t wait to dive in! (Honestly, I think I may be most excited to see what animal will resonate with me this week and if I am a sacral chakra person!)
I’ll be doing a lot of the same things as last week, incorporating foods, colors, scents, mantras, meditation and yoga. Instead of making 4 sessions myself, I’m only going to make 3, and I’ll be doing a few self-led meditations. Last week I didn’t get to chant the bija mantra. It just never came up in the meditations I did and I didn’t do it on my own. So that’ll definitely be something I’ll be including.
Here’s to a week of sensually creative emotional expression!!
