So what the hell is Svadhishthana? It’s one of the seven chakras that are in our being. Chakras are the energetic spiritual centers of the body all representing different attributes. Svadhishthana, or the “sacral chakra” is the one I want to chat about today. Within the past 10 months, my focus has really zeroed in on building my career. Within the past month, it’s the only thing I can even see…it's like I have blinders on to the rest of the world around me. All that my focus is on is creating and growing my fledgling empire and bettering myself. So where do sexual relationships fit into all of this? They don’t. Why would I be chasing after something that continually knocks me off of my center and takes me out of my fullest power? Won’t be happening anytime soon, promise.

 

How does this relate to the Sacral Chakra? It is the home to BOTH creative and sexual energies of your being. It’s dedicated to your relationships with others and is the pro-creation center. Positioned at the base of our spine, this is the chakra that energetically charges all other chakra systems of the body. It is from this chakra that your energy gets distributed throughout your whole chakra energy system. Your sacral chakra also relates to issues of power in the external world - specifically, your financial and sexual power as well as your power in terms of business and social interactions. Svadhishthana is also associated with your expression of desire, intimacy, and the undisturbed flow of your emotions as well as the honest expression of your feelings. This is the sacred and powerful place in which you manifest your dreams and desires, as well as work through your fears and boundaries. An open sacral chakra allows you to be able to feel both emotionally and physically, connect to others, and genuinely be able to let things go that no longer are serving your highest self. 

 

Now let’s tie this all together. I feel like there is a lot of pressure to find a boo and that you don't “have it all” until you do. Well…fuck that. Use your energy to BUILD SOMETHING. Is there anything more important than truly and deeply loving yourself and the life that YOU CREATE? Instead of wasting your time and life trying to find someone to fill the void of being alone, I encourage you to channel that sexual energy into creative energy and make magic in your world. If you refuse to settle and continue to work on yourself, someone so incredible is going to step into your world it will feel like you made them up in a dream. Embrace being alone and find power in that. The best things come when you are not searching for them. Cultivate ya self love, put your dreams into action.
