On a whim, I decided to draw my sacral chakra. I’m not one of those lucky people that can see energy, but I can sense it in other ways.
I tuned in with my sacral chakra, using its guidance to choose the colors, shapes, and patterns in this drawing:
You might notice that the lines are jagged, the layers are irregular, and it seems to have a large peak on one side.
Of course, chakras adjust for your highest and best good, so an irregular chakra isn’t “right” or “wrong,” per se. It just is.
Still, I sensed that it could use some work. My sacral chakra has been a difficult chakra for me, due to some traumas from my past. I had started the drawing as part of my Chakra Doodles Facebook page, but decided to turn it into an experiment.
After a few days of diligently working on my sacral chakra (more on that below), I intuitively drew it again. The second drawing looked like this:
It’s more regular, organized, and clean. Again, I hesitate to say it’s “better” than the other, but I noticed that my sacral chakra felt more energetically aligned that day, which seemed to fit with the change in the drawing.
So, what did I do to affect this difference?
Chakras work on their own to balance themselves. However, you can make a big difference by focusing on that chakra and finding what it needs to support healing. It helps to focus on the function and lessons of that particular chakra as you do so.
Here’s what I did between those two pictures:
- Listened to sacral chakra healing music (found on YouTube)
- Meditated on that chakra and its role in my life
- Wrote this song (oddly enough, it came to me in a dream, and the lyrics are related to the sacral chakra)
- Wrote some poetry and posted it online
- Energetically released trauma through Reiki
- Recognized and released sacral chakra energies as they popped up (and there were several!)
Certainly, these are only some examples of chakra healing, but they were highly effective. I’d love to hear someone else’s experiences drawing their chakras to see how it compares with mine!
