One day, I had a thought, “I know how important it is to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles to support the bladder to prevent incontinence, to support the low back and alleviate back aches, and to prevent anything worse, such as uterine, bladder, and rectal prolapse, BUT what if we looked at the energetic side of the pelvis? What other amazing magical mysteries does the pelvis hold?”
The pelvis is home to two energy chakras: The Root Chakra and The Sacral Chakra. I was so curious about the potential of this energy being affected during, say pregnancy or childbirth, even a cesarean section surgery, that I decided to research it further.
If you’re not familiar with chakras and all the magic that they hold, here’s a brief description of the two pelvic chakras.
THE FIRST CHAKRA (Root Chakra) is found at the base of your spine. This is your foundation. The basic issues associated with the root chakra are instinct, safety, survival, grounding, family, security, boundaries, and new beginnings. The body parts associated with the root chakra are coccyx, anus, large intestine, adrenal glands, back, leg, feet and bones.
THE SECOND CHAKRA (Sacral Chakra) represents your sexuality, creativity, finances, personal power, relationships, sensuality, and pleasure. Organs associated with the Second Chakra include uterus, ovaries, vagina, cervix, large intestine, lower vertebrae, pelvis, appendix, and bladder. Spiritual and emotional issues that can block energy in the Second Chakra are balancing your drives toward sex, money, and relationships; co-creating with others; defining boundaries; and struggling with when to give and take and when to be assertive and passive. Physical dysfunctions that can occur are: lower back pain, sexual impotency, urinary problems, and appendicitis.
Did you know all of that?? I didn’t either!
When I posed my question to an online forum, I received some amazing responses by experts in their respective field. So, I interviewed a few of them because I figured if I was so intrigued by it, maybe others would be, too!
So here we go! I interviewed four really talented, loving, amazing goddess women; there were a couple of times that I was so blown away by what they were throwing down… I was speechless. You’ll see what I mean.
After discovering how much more magic the pelvis holds, I’ve focused my work on helping postpartum moms. Giving birth or having a caesarean section can really take a toll on the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles and the energy in these areas. Without proper healing, we’re talking more than physical pain, and that’s not okay with me.
