The Sacral Chakra corresponds with the lower abdomen or lower Dahn-jon. It is the creative center—whether that’s the ability to make money, grow a baby or express sexual passion. Physical manifestation of an unbalanced Sacral Chakra can include lower back pain, sexual dysfunction, genital tract infections; even emotional distress such as jealousy or frustration.
Intestine Exercise can help with lower back pain, aid digestion and release any tension you have built up in your abdominal area. Releasing tension makes you more flexible, increases circulation and gives you more energy, all of which can go a long way toward keeping your intestines healthy!
Here are two easy and fun exercises for tuning into your Sacral Chakra and firing up its energy:
- Make a triangle of of your hands and place your hands over your abdomen. Your thumbs should be on your navel and your forefingers over your lower abdomen. Standing up straight, slightly bend your knees and tilt your pelvis in toward your spine making an arch in your lower back. Exhale and relax your upper body entirely. Breathing comfortably and naturally, begin slowly yet rhythmically moving your abdominal muscles inward and outward. Focus on the pulling and pushing in your abdominal muscles. Soon you will notice a warming sensation fill your lower Dahn-jon.
Try 100–200 repetitions per day to start with, and work your way up as you feel the need.
- It may seem silly, but you can slap your tummy into shape. Body tapping is known to stimulate, tonify and rebalance. Tapping on one place of your body can stimulate meridians in other parts of your body, clearing blockages that you may not even realize you have. Here’s how you do it: Standing up, or lying down, make a light fist of both hands, or use open palms, and start gently patting your abdomen on either side of your navel. Bend your knees slightly to relax your upper body. Open your mouth slightly and breath normally. Your hands should only be about 2–3 inches from your body when you pat or tap with your fingertips. You can simply pat with gentle strikes or, for a little extra muscle exercise, move your abdominal muscles out to resist your hands.
Try 100–300 pats in a session. Repeat throughout the day.
