Orange Aura is here today to cleanse, heal, and activate your sacral chakra, the foundation for your joy. When you’re ready, allow this crystal’s intense, rich energy flow through this energy center and then throughout the body, leaving behind a warm glow.
As you sit in that space of comfort and warmth, call to mind something or someone who brings you joy whenever you’re in their presence. It could be a person, a place, or an object. For me, the first thing that came up was my dog, Zahra. Her presence always brings me happiness, no matter how crazy or busy things get. It has been comforting to know that whenever I return home, she will be there waiting for me.
The funny thing is, when I first went to the humane society in Durango, Colorado, I went in thinking it was time for me to finally get the black cat I had wanted since high school. Knowing I was going in for my first pet, I wanted something relatively low maintenance. As luck would have it, none of the black cats and I meshed, and the kittens that were there were okay, but didn’t have the right energy I was looking for. On a whim, my friend convinced me to just take a look at the dogs, and in one back corner, we came across this shaky rat terrier with such big, sweet eyes. Something just clicked, and a few hours later, I was a happy (yet terrified) first time pet owner.
Time would let me know Zahra was the perfect first companion for me. Her sweetness and love for cuddles always warms my heart. She loves to get me to out and active, walking or running around. And she has a sense of humor that gets me every time since she doesn’t bring it out often.
So today (and always, really), I am grateful for Zahra and the joyful companionship she brings me. That joy grounds me and brings me back to the present moment, when all that matters is my time with her. What about you? Who or what brings you joy, and how can you show appreciation for what they bring into your life?
