Playful Energy

Many of us don’t have enough play in our lives.  I am certainly guilty of this!  It’s mainly being self-employed that does it for me – I find it hard to prioritise play! I don’t skimp on spending time to look after my wellbeing – I take all the time necessary to shop for and cook fresh organic food to nourish myself, I spend 1-2 hours exercising most days, I am pretty careful to ensure that I get enough good quality sleep and I keep my surroundings as toxin-free as possible.

I literally could not imagine a life without books! The sacral chakra is all about passion and creativity, as well as relationships, including communication with others.  If your sacral chakra is open and balanced you will feel appreciation of the good
