Wishing a warm welcome to all!
After celebrating the New Moon Solar Eclipse last week, it’s time to take another look at one of the 7 Chakras and how its unique properties can aid our wellbeing
Working with The Second Chakra - What is the Sacral Chakra?
"The second chakra, also known as the sacral chakra, is located at the pelvis and is usually pictured as being orange in color. This energy center is key for sexuality and hormonal balance, which affects the entire body. No matter what stage of life you are at, this chakra can be thrown off by trauma or illness.
Some people are uncomfortable with their own sexuality, and that can throw this chakra out of whack too."
From ‘A Year and a Day of Everyday Witchcraft’ by Deborah Blake
This Thursday, join your coven for some work with your Sacral Chakra- the chakra of pleasure to clear energy blockages and seek holistic wellbeing

Find some time to join in for shared spellwork and a tea meditation - an easy and beginner-friendly meditative practice to help you focus your mind and draw in your energies
Although we are physically spread out across the world, it is possible to come together and share our energies and support when we share a quiet moment together.
Let’s enjoy a relaxing and peaceful tea time as a coven- you are warmly invited!
Choose your beverage . While tea is the standard, it is perfectly fine to do this meditation with coffee, juice, hot cocoa, or any other beverage
Focus your intent . You can follow any style or type of meditation you choose- focus on your breath and thoughts and be present in this moment
Work some magick! While meditation is a magickal and healing process all on its own, you may choose to add an additional element of magick to your tea time.
(Optional - Jun 17) : Working With the Sacral Chakra
This week’s meditation continues the journey into chakra work. The Second Chakra is the chakra of pleasure and by opening your Sacral Chakra, you can soothe hormonal and body imbalances and clear inner blockages
The following tea meditation is inspired by Deborah Blakes’ notes on the Second Chakra in her book ‘A Year and a Day of Everyday Witchcraft’.
Begin this meditation by breathing deeply. Slowly, pull your focus to the Sacral region below your navel. Allow yourself to sense the energy stored here- does it flow freely, or does it feel blocked?
If the energy feels strange or stuck then you know you need to unblock your Sacral Chakra.
Hold your beverage securely in your lap, low against your stomach. Feel the heat radiating from your mug and into the chakra point below your belly button.
Take three long, deep breaths, imagining good feeling and happy energy flowing through you.
Visualize a bright orange light. Get it to spin in a clockwise direction. If it seems stuck or stagnant, send love and acceptance to that area of your body and see if that helps.
Continue to breathe deeply, letting the light and energy course through your body and leave a trail of delight. Feel the power swirling in your stomach and stretching out across your body.
Feel the reduced tension in your lower belly, and enjoy the pleasure this brings you throughout the rest of your day
NOTE: An abundance of wonderful information about the Sacral Chakra was shared by @sarah29- feel free to learn more in her post here! For those who love Guided Meditations , you can follow along with the 10 Minute Sacral Chakra Meditation.
When your meditation is complete, enjoy the good vibes! Meditation helps to foster a clear mind, increased focus, and boost of positivity- carry these good feelings with you through the rest of your day or night!
Know that you are very welcome to share any thoughts or experiences you had during tea time in the comments below. Feel free to share some pics of your tea, your plans for the rest of the week, or just talk about what’s on your mind today.
And if you are around and available, the wonderful @MeganB is hosting a Zoom chat this week to have a cozy chat with the coven! Additional details will be posted in the comments below.

[9am - 10am EST, Thursday June 17th]
I’ve been delving more and more into chakra work recently, and what a delight to see how many others enjoy working with the chakras as well! By request, every now and then a group ritual will focus on one of the chakras until all 7 have been covered.
I hope exploring the many benefits of meditative and insightful energy work helps to bring clarity and pleasure to both your magickal craft and daily life
Looking forward to a shared cup this Thursday. Until then, Love and Light!
