Numb… That’s the best way to describe it. Numb and stuck in life are the two best descriptions to how it felt, before the feeling of wanting to break free presented itself. Break free from what precisely was still not identified, yet feeling free could never feel this way. A pure hunger lingered, yet food is not what was yearned for. A pure hunger for life kept lingering, yet not knowing how to obtain it……
That yearning lingered for days, months even years. Seeking thrills only gave a temporary adrenaline rush. Wanting to immortalize that vitality and pleasure, for a few moments would always leave a taste of dissatisfaction. The journey continued and led straight to the womb of a female or the hara of a male. Located in every human being the sacral chakra: the powerhouse of emotions, sensuality and creativity. It’s energy is characterized by the element of water and is represented by flow and flexibility.
A lifetime of Netflix and chill, toxic relationships, dating apps and living in a world that suppresses sexual intimacy and desires, yet capitalizes heavily of this same suppression of sexual energy, has left most of this world populations sexually frustrated, emotionally depleted, energetically exhausted, scattered and numb on the inside. For a lifetime of being told what you felt naturally is “bad”, you learned how to hide and be ashamed of the very thing that could set you free. Sometimes your whole life will crash and burn to finally get you to the point that it might be time to do things differently and on your own terms.
Are you ready to live a life you love, filled with passion, vitality and happiness? It’s time to rebalance your sacral chakra!
The sacral chakra is associated with the following psychological and behavioral functions:
- Emotions and feelings
- Relationships / relating
- Expression of sexuality & sensual pleasure
- Feeling the outer and inner worlds
The sacral chakra is associated with our emotions. It’s the center of our feelings and sensations. It’s particularly active in our sexuality and expression of our sensual and sexual desires.
In a hyper sexualized world, it seems that the great majority of people are trying to obtain love by the misconceptions that sex equals intimacy. Yet reconnecting the intimacy with oneself will help amplify the love within you and you will no longer have to chase the love you seek, you will effortlessly attract it towards you. Take back you power, take back your innocence!
