Interview with Lisa Erickson: Why 2nd Chakra Issues Present as Disempowerment Issues in Women
Today I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Lisa Erickson a certified energy worker, mindfulness practitioner, teacher, expert on healing sexual trauma and 2nd chakra issues (aka sacral chakra issues) and newly published author.
Today’s topic is around understanding the significance of the chakra system as it relates to women stepping into their own voice, owning their own personal power, healing from past traumas and specifically healing sexual trauma and starting to thrive as opposed to simply survive.
We discussed the prevalence of lower chakra issues, specifically root chakra (1st) and scaral chakra (2nd) issues for most of humanity!
The 2nd sacral chakra tends to be out of balance for both men and women.
For men, 2nd chakra issues have to do with blocking emotions and emotional expression.
For women, sacral chakra issues have to do with blocking healthy sexual expression, receptivity on many fronts as well as creative expression.
It shines a light on some significant issues we all face in relating to the opposite sex and what we all need to work on to heal the imbalances of the 2nd chakra (aka the sacral chakra).
Lisa shares here 15 years of experience as an energy worker, dealing with women’s (and men’s) chakra issues. In particular, Lisa has discovered in her practice chakra issues as they relate to dealing with trauma. She works with trauma in general, as well as sexual trauma, recovring from sexual assault, emotional abuse and how it affects the chakra system, in particular, the 2nd chakra (aka Svadhistana) .
Lisa Erickson also introduces us to her newest book: Chakra Empowerment for Women: Self-Guided Techniques for Healing Trauma, Owning Your Power & Finding Overall Wellness .
