The following is an excerpt from a book I am reading called, The Book of Chakras by Ambika Wauters.
The Influence of the Sacral Chakra
This chakra embodies the totality of our physical health and emotional well being. It can bring us the highest degree of health or be the most dysfunctional of all energy centers in the human energy system. When people abuse their bodies, treating them like machines that need only to be fueled and rested occasionally, they fail to realize that the body is a vessel for the spirit. The Scaral Chakra works from a deep unconscious realm where our attitudes about ourselves create our physical well-being. Our relationship to health, well-being, and joy reflects how much we values ourselves and honor our spirit on the physical plane…..
If you want health it is important to know that the body regenerates with the proper stimulus. The body thrives on medicine compatible with one’s higher consciousness. Energetic medicines such as homeopathy, acupuncture, herbalism, and hands-on healing restore natural vitality. Allopathic medicines give the body heroic doses of chemicals that require large quantities of energy to break down and assimilate. Eating food with additives and diminished life force from radiation and spraying only cause the cells to become stagnant with irritants. All this eventually weakens the body’s responses….
The Sacral Chakra functions best when there are optimal conditions for joy, relaxation, and pleasure. If the body is used as a beast of burden, it will wear out early and develop painful conditions from the strain. If the body is not given enough stimulation in the form of exercise, it becomes lazy and congested. What is good for the body is good for our energy.
This chakra thrives with a combination of healthy discipline and enough pleasure to ease out stress and tension in the body. It looks for natural solutions that honor the physical being and the spirit of a person. If the Sacral Chakra is looked after properly, the physical body is vital and energetic for well into the senior years. It wears down from a lack of pleasure, harsh and punishing treatment, and physical therapies that do not involve an energetic context for healing.
