Part 1 of a chakra visualization for encouraging the creative flow that involves Svadhisthana (Sacral Chakra) and Vishuddha (Throat Chakra).
This is Part One. Part Two, Creative Flow – Outflow, is coming soon.
Visualize yourself sitting in a room with round walls and a curved ceiling. The walls are light grey in colour and the room is empty but for the large, comfy cushion that you are sitting on. The room is a blank canvas, ready for you to create anything you want.
Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and focus on Svadhisthana, your Sacral Chakra. See the beautiful orange orb that is this chakra spinning just in front of your spine, near the level of your navel. As you hold the image of Svadhisthana in your mind’s eye and pour your attention into it, the glow of the orange light grows stronger, filling your abdomen with its beautiful radiance.
One of the aspects of this chakra is creativity, specifically the gathering ideas and creative components. As the energy and light of this chakra grows stronger, so too does its magnetic pull.
With your core being warmed by Svadhisthana, hold the kernel of an idea in your mind. It could be a snippet of lyrics for a song, an idea for a poem, a fragment of an image, or a theme for some other type of creative project. Don’t try to reach or force the idea to develop. Instead, picture a seed that represents this idea and place it in the centre of Svadhisthana.
Sit quietly and wait, remaining peaceful and open. Picture the orange light of this chakra bathing the seed with warm energy and see Svadhisthana reaching further and further out into the cosmos and drawing complementary thoughts and ideas to you with ease. Fill your being with a feeling of trust as you sit in the centre of this flow.
Stay with this image as long as you like.
