Increasing ones ability to connect with the creative forces in the world is quite important in leading a fulfilling and loving life. We can all benefit from creative activities like drawing, painting, dancing, writing, singing and many more forms of art. These practices will begin to encourage growth while renewing the spirit and deterring negative self-talk. Creativity is related directly to the Sacral Chakra. A healthy Sacral Chakra allows the flow of sensual expression. When the Sacral Chakra becomes blocked symptoms result in reproductive disorders and emotional imbalance. This particular Chakra happens to rest between the sex organs and is often times represented by the color yellow. A fabulous essential oil to aid in the healing of this second chakra is earthy Sandalwood. Sandalwood essential oil enables new cellular growth that can be helpful for those of all ages.
