Weekly Tarot Spread: Balancing and Clearing the Sacral Chakra

So last week I did the reading on my root chakra and today I did my reading for my sacral chakra. If you haven’t checked out the reading for my root chakra then I’ll firstly say, you should check it out. Also, I am doing the chakra readings as a follow up to me learning my reiki 1 and 2 placements.

Tarot spread I used

One thing I have noticed is the more and more I do the readings, the more and more I am able to intuitively read the cards. My only struggle I’m having is cards that don’t show up often for me in readings and when they are reversed. I’m getting better though and I’m so excited about it!

What I pulled

Card to represent my sacral ckakra: Eight of Swords

My sacral chakra is blocked. I have swords all around me but I can’t reach due to being tied up. This all is to say I have the tools to open my sacral chakra but I’ve been unable to find and grasp them. Due to the card being a sword the reason I can’t reach the tools seems to be a mental issue rather than not being able to physically get the tools.

How to better channel my creative energy: Death

Like last week to reach my full potential I need to let the old me (the me that doesn’t doesn’t believe in herself and is too caught up in what others think) die and birth a new me. A me with confidence and happiness. When I do this I will find the creative energy I lack

Practical way I can deepen my relationships: Knight of Pentacles Reversed

When in reverse this card is about routine, being bored, and needing a change in scenery. This means for me that I can deepen my relationships by being spontaneous and changing things up. I’m lacking a social life because I’m so focused on school or work.

A good way for me to balance this chakra: Three of Wands reversed

The three of wands talks about going on a personal journey but not receiving the achievements you were hoping for due to delays or road blocks, But instead of giving up I need to keep working on my self journey because eventually I will get there and when I do, my sacral chakra will be balanced.

Result of balancing this chakra: The World

This card talks of a great unity and wholeness. It symbolizes the moment the inner and outer worlds (self and other) become a single entity. It talks about reaching enlightenment and all efforts are paying off. This is saying when my sacral chakra opens I will find enlightenment and I will feel complete and whole.

Lastly, as we now major arcana cards represent great importance which means creativity and the results of my sacral chakra being balanced are most important and these two cards are both directly effecting the state of my sacral chakra in this moment.

All about Reiki

So since I got my holy fire reiki 1 and 2 placements over the weekend, and hope to offer a reiki service on the site soon, I thought it would be good to talk about what reiki is.

How does reiki work?

Reiki is an energy that exists beyond this world. It goes beyond time and distance. When one is attuned to the reiki energy you can channel the reiki energy through your hands (palm chakras) and give that energy to yourself or others.

What is the purpose of reiki?

The purpose of reiki is to heal yourself spiritually, physically, and mentally/emotionally. The reiki energy is used to balance and align your chakras which in itself helps your soul, mind, and body. The energy can also focus on other body parts and organs to help heal those as well.

What does it feel like to receive reiki?

Everyone experiences reiki differently. Some people feel nothing but relaxed. Some can feel the energy unblocking their chakras. When I receive reiki I feel a tingly sensation where the practitioner is working on me. Some people see visions, or hear voices. I know some people who start floating off the table. You can be visited by various parts of the universal energy source. I find people often see the universal energy source in the shape of angels but as someone who doesn’t believe in angels I think they they would present themselves differently to me.

How does long distance reiki work?

The way it was explained to me was that picture our souls being connected to a cord that extends past our world to a place where distance and time does not exist. When you administer reiki long distance the energy travels to the start of the cord where there is no time or distance. It travels through the cord and then heals the soul it was meant to heal in our world. So not only can reiki be done long distance, but it can be done to someone in the past or future.

Do I need to take classes to do Reiki?

Some believe you can learn through books on your own but most believe you have to be taught. There are ignitions and placements you have to complete. There are also secret symbols to learn from a teacher. So while some believe you don’t have to learn from a teacher it is agreed that you must learn some way or another. You can’t just do it randomly.

What else should I know about reiki?

Reiki can not cause harm no matter what. You can do Reiki on someone as long as you have their souls permission. So say you want to do Reiki on your child who can’t speak yet, if you ask their soul and their soul gives you permission then you can do Reiki on them.

Reiki has no religion. It is thought of as a pagan concept these days I think, but what do you think Jesus (the real Jesus, the healer, not the one Christian’s talk of, God’s son) was doing? Some form of reiki, even if reiki wasn’t its name then. He was healing with his hands.

Your intention with reiki is what is most important. Your symbols don’t have to be perfect and your hand placements don’t have to be either. As long as your intentions are clear reiki energy will do what needs to be done to help heal the person you are giving reiki to.

And as always, when you are done doing reiki (like when you are done with a sacred circle or a Ouija board for example) you must close the persons energies and let go of the reiki energy. When you are done doing reiki you align the chakras, you remove any psychic waste in the air, and you thank the reiki energy for helping and release it. You do this to make sure the person who received reiki will stay safe because you never know what negative energies are lurking around waiting to feed on someone’s new energy.

After a Reiki session you should drink lots of water and expect to have a deep sleep and possibly some very vivid dreams.

Tourmaline

Tourmaline regardless of colour promotes inspiration and happiness, reduces fear, and building self-esteem. The various colours of tourmaline have different effects on people.

images (1)Red-Violet, deep pink: This kind of tourmaline is a root chakra healer and offers vitality to the physical body.

Orange: enhances creativity, stimulates the sacral chakra, and balances emotions of sexual nature.

Yellow: Aligns with solar plexus chakra and boosts personal power and spiritual growth.

Pink: promotes love and joy

Green: opens the heart chakra, allows it to see what the third eye visualizes, teaches compromise, must have for a herbalist or anyone who works with plants, and attracts success and abundance.

Blue: activates the third eye and throat chakra, assists retrieval of higher knowledge, and enhances inner knowing.

Violet: protects against dark entities.

Brown: cleanses the aura and auric field. It can be used to as a protective stone  to bring peace and hope.

Black: repels negativity, lifts a dark mood to a light mood, and grounds the root chakra to the earth energies.

Watermelon: It promotes unconditional love, bonds the heart chakra energies with the higher self, enlightens energies which allows room for laughter and lightness, and releases moods of being too serious.

Neon: magnifier energy that can be used  as a complementary tool  to enhance healing properties  of other healing stones, and offers power and focus.

Colourless: it activates the crown chakra; assists communications with the ascended masters, extraterrestrial beings, and the angelic realm; and it also aids higher awareness.

Healing:

Tourmaline is a great stone to use for weight loss and cellulite reduction. It works best when the tourmaline is incorporated into clothing.

It is also great for absorbing, aligning, and cleansing. The crystal is great for absorbing energy. Due to this if it builds up too much negative energy it will need to be cleansed or instead of making a room more positive the absorbed negative energy can have negative effects on a room. The crystal is also great for aligning the chakras as said earlier.

Lastly, the crystal also attracts inspiration. So if you’re trying to get a project done try having tourmaline around. If you have a piece with a colour that corresponds to your situation you will have even better results.

Chakras: The Root and Sacral Chakras

What-Is-Chakra-1

Chakras were the very first “pagan” idea that I ever connected with. Even when I considered myself a Christian, who did not believe in anything metaphysical that wasn’t part of the bible, this was a concept I was continuously drawn to. What got me started with chakras is this test https://www.eclecticenergies.com/chakras/chakratest I used to take it every couple months to see if my chakras were more balanced. I think at the end of the day a test can’t be totally accurate but I think it’s a good starting point to see where you need to improve.

What are the chakras? Firstly, there are 7 of them. They are balls of energy in various locations in your body that affect you physically, emotionally/mentally, and spiritually. There are 3 different states of our chakras: over-active, under-active, and balanced. When you have a chakra that is over-active you’ll often find one under-active to compensate. The goal is to have all 7 chakras balanced equally. To balance the chakras one must start from the bottom and make your way to the top. Like anything in order for success you must start with a good foundation. The 7 chakras are the root, sacral, navel, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras. In this post I will break down the different attributes of the chakras and ways we may balance each one.

The Root Chakra

Root-chakra

Colour: Red

Located: Base of the Spine

Element: Earth

This chakra is about being physically and feeling at home in all situations

When opened: You will feel grounded and secure. You will feel a sense of stability. You know who to trust. You’re thinking in the present and are connected to your physical body.

When under-active: You will feel nervous and fearful. You have a hard time feeling welcomed. You lack that feeling of belonging and security.

When over-active: You may find yourself being greedy and materialistic. You may have a fear of change and obsess over having a sense of security. 

Healing and balancing the root chakra:

  1. Reiki
  2. Crystal healing (stones such as mahogany obsidian, red tigers eyes, hematite, tourmaline, red carnelian, and red jasper)
  3. Essential oils (oils such as ylang-ylang, myrrh, patchouli, vetiver, rosewood, thyme, frankincense, ginger)
  4. Chakra mudra (Gayan mudra is used for activating the root chakra. To preform it you need to touch the tip of your thumb and index finger together)
  5. Chakra sound therapy (the sound “LAM” is the mantra that connects with the first chakra. The frequency of “LAM” matches perfectly to heal the chakra)
  6. Meditation (you can imagine a red ball of light at the base of your spine and then imagine this light extending down your legs and to your feet. You can also practice the mudra and mantra during meditation)
  7. Natural healing methods (gardening, mountain hiking, and other activities that connect you with the earth and nature).

The Sacral Chakra

Sacral-chakra

Colour: Orange

Located: Lower Abdomen/pelvis

Element: Water

This Chakra is about feeling and sexuality. 

When open: You are able to express your emotions freely without being overemotional. You open yourself up to intimacy and passion. You are comfortable with your sexuality and sexuality as a whole.

When under-active: You tend to be more cold and unemotional. You aren’t one to open yourself up to others.

When over-active: You are over-emotional and get attached to others easily. You also may be overtly excessively sexual.

Healing and balancing the sacral chakra:

  1. Reiki
  2. Crystal healing (crystals such as citrine, moonstone, amber, tangerine quartz, sunstone, carnelian, and orange calcite)
  3. Essential oils (oils such as tangerine, neroli, jasmine, rosewood, clary sage, grape, bergamot, and geranium)
  4. Chakra mudra (To activate the sacral mudra put your hands on your lap, palms up, on top of each other with your left hand underneath)
  5. chakra sound therapy (the sound “VAM” is the mantra that connects with the second chakra. The frequency of “VAM” perfectly matches to heal the chakra)
  6. Meditation (imagine a bright orange ball of energy in your pelvis and imagine it making it’s way down the base of your spine and down your legs to your feet. You can also practice the sacral mudra and mantra while meditating)
  7. Natural Healing Methods (spend time by the ocean, lake or river; take walks by the water or sit with it in view; go wading or swimming)

So there is an overview of what chakras are, specifics on the root chakra and the sacral chakra. Next week I’ll continue talking about the navel, heart, and throat chakras.
