What is it about the holidays that makes us feel like we need to have our nails done, our hair done, dress up and generally look like we stepped out of a magazine every time we step out of the house? Oh and when it comes to holiday gatherings, the bar is raised to Vogue status. It’s not like you don’t already have dozens of other things piled onto your to-do list.
Fortunately there’s something powerful you can do for yourself that can help you feel and radiate the feminine beauty that is already inside of you, without you needing to buy new lipstick or worry about fitting in a pre-holiday wax. It only takes a few minutes and it’s simple to achieve by activating your sacral chakra.
Your sacral chakra is one of seven spinning wheel-like energy centers distributed vertically throughout your body, from the base of your spine to several inches above your head.
The sacral chakra is found about three inches below your navel, and it rules your lower abdomen, reproductive organs, kidney, bladder and circulatory system. It is associated with emotion: pleasure, sexuality and creativity. When you spend a few minutes connecting with this vital center and you focus on expanding it’s invisible field a few feet outside of your body, you will start to feel your inner radiance. This radiance will be perceived as your essential beauty. It’s far more powerful and beautiful than anything you could buy at Sephora.
To make sure you feel beautiful through this holiday season, try on this sacral chakra activation practice to spark your natural creatively and radiance.
Sit on your knees, relax your body while keeping your back straight. Place your hands on your lap, palms ups, on top of each other. Left hand underneath, the palm touching the back fingers of the right hand, and your thumbs touching gently. Visualize and concentrate on the color orange. Picture a bright orange energy sphere of energy inside your stomach just below your belly button. Allow this orange ball of energy to fill you up until it grows outside of your body about 2 feet. Let yourself relax, and rest within this glowing radiant sphere, feeling creative and beautiful just in your very being. Allow this field to stay switched on as you move on with your day or next activity.
The wonderful thing about this sacral activation is that it stays turned on without to having to keep it on. This practice doesn’t have to take a long time. It can be accomplished in just a few focused minutes.
Try this practice the next time you; head out to work in the morning on a day that you don’t have time to fuss with makeup, before you go to a holiday work or social gathering, while you are getting dressed for a holiday party, or on a day when you are feeling not so fresh. Of course, wearing feminine lingerie under your clothes will only amplify your inner radiance.
You’ll be surprised at how many people will comment and ask you if you’ve done something different. It’s up to you whether you tell them about the orange ball inside you...or not.
