Chakras are centers of energy located in the midline of the body. There are 7 chakras and they reign over our psychological well being. The 2nd chakra is the Sacral chakra, located in the lower abdomen and the center of emotional, sensual, and sexual consciousness. When it is in balance you are able to express and feel your emotions. You feel happy and confident with whom you are. When you are distant and unemotional your Sacral chakra is underactive. Very emotional and promiscuous people are said to have overactive Sacral chakras.
Breakfast is an important part of a balanced Sacral chakra. The 3 “R” Cleansing Juice recipe is an excellent example of a Sacral food- orange in color and abundant in water that reconnects you to the earth.
