Sacral, Womb, Hara, a Tree Trunk and Emotions? What’s The Connection?

What do they all have in common?                                    

Strength, power and wisdom to name a few things.

Allow me to explain….

A few weeks ago, I went to have a massage. The massage therapist is an acquaintance of mine. We were talking about many things spiritual and it all led to the heart and how it’s important to express through the heart. This is well known of course and not new information.

But she said something very interesting after this, and that was, if we have the strength in our sacral area we can come to more of a place of vulnerability and strength from the heart. When the sacral area is weak, coming from the heart is still there, but without the full strength and power.

This inspired me greatly and I began to connect the dots…..             

Let’s backtrack here a bit. The sacral chakra is connected to reproduction on a physical level, creativity on a mental level, joy on an emotional level, and enthusiasm on a spiritual level. In females specifically it is to do with accepting their femininity, and of course there is the balance of the feminine and masculine in both males and females. Since the Venus transit earlier on this year, it has collectively allowed us as humanity to come into balance with our masculine and feminine sides and to let go of barriers that hold us back from doing so.

To add to this, and to be able to explain further where I’m going with this. Last year I began to work with the Emotion Code (a book of the same name by Dr Bradley Nelson). The basis of this work is that we can have emotions that are trapped around our body that then interfere with our biology, as all our cells and DNA which is all energy too. We can also have emotions trapped around our heart forming a heart wall. This stops us from being present with the world authentically from the heart. As these emotions are like colored filters that taint what we express and receive from and through the heart. With the emotion code it is possible to identify what these emotions are and release them. You can watch more of this in my video… 

Bursting the Bubble around the Heart.

As we were having this discussion about the sacral area and barriers, I began to wonder. Is it possible that there might be a sacral wall, or a womb wall or a hara wall? (Sacral – referring to the chakra, womb – the physical body, and hara – which in Chinese medicine is known to be the power center of our body, two fingers below the belly button). I was very curious about this, as I felt maybe that just like a heart wall, it is possible to have a wall or walls in this area that impact how we express our power…..

In the days to follow, I began to work with myself and other willing friends to investigate this concept. I have to add I’m sharing my inspiration here and what led up to it. What I found was there were wall(s) in place in this area. I felt I needed to check whether it was in each of the areas, sacral, hara, and womb. Then to check if the walls were the same in each area or different. After identifying this, I began to clear the walls, by identifying the emotions that made them up and releasing them.

The very interesting thing I found was that the emotions making up these walls had been trapped around the times at a time that the person had felt they had lost their power due to certain situations in their life!

This was so fascinating to me! What does this mean?

To me it meant that the walls in this area were stopping us from being in our power, being present to who we are here to be. And visually to explain this, it’s like when we have these walls in place they weaken the tree trunk of a tree, and that impacts the branches and flowers that form (this being an analogy to the heart area). So we can come from our heart with all good intentions, but if our inner power, our true strength is weak, like a weak tree trunk, it means we have less stability and strength to come with fullness from our heart.

We are moving towards oneness internally and externally, and my feeling is that clearing the walls around this area will allow us to come into oneness internally with the feminine and masculine aspects of ourselves. This allows us to come from our internal strength, power and wisdom.

As it is said…..healing of all begins from within us.

Thank you.


  1. Charan,
    I think you’re really on to something big with this! It makes so much sense, and it should be an easy thing to experiment and play with.


  2. Hara Centering

    “Concentrate the energy on the Hara, the point two inches below the navel. That is the center from where one enters life and that is the center from where one dies and goes out of life. So that is the contact center between the body and the soul. If you feel a sort of wavering left and right and you don’t know where your center is, that simply shows that you are no longer in contact with your Hara, so you have to create that contact.”

    When: In the night, when you go to sleep/first thing in the morning.
    Duration: 10-5 minutes.

    Step 1: Locate the Hara
    “Lie down on the bed and put both your hands two inches below the navel and press a little.

    Step 2: Take a Deep Breath!
    “Start breathing, deep breathing. You will feel that center coming up and down with the breathing. Feel your whole energy there as if you are shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and you are just existing there as a small center, very concentrated energy.

    Step 3: Center While U Sleep!
    “Fall asleep doing it — that will be helpful. Then the whole night that centering persists. Again and again the unconscious goes and centers there. So the whole night without your knowing, you will be coming in many ways in deep contact with the center.

    Step 4: Reconnect with the Hara
    “In the morning, the moment that you feel that sleep has gone, don’t open your eyes first. Again put your hands there, push a little, start breathing; again feel the Hara. Do this for 10-5 minutes and then get up.

    “Do this every night, every morning. Within three months you will start feeling centered.

    “It is very essential to have a centering otherwise one feels fragmentary; then one is not together. One is just like a jigsaw — all fragments and not a gestalt, not a whole. It is a bad shape, because without a center a man can drag but cannot love. Without a center you can go on doing routine things in your life, but you can never be creative. You will live the minimum. The maximum will not be possible for you. Only by centering does one live at the maximum, at the zenith, at the peak, at the climax, and that is the only living, a real life.

    “For example, there will be less thinking because energy will not move to the head, it will go to the Hara. The more you think of the Hara, the more you concentrate there, the more you will find a discipline arising in you. That comes naturally, it has not to be forced.

    “The more you are aware of the Hara, the less you will become afraid of life and death — because that is the center of life and death. Once you become attuned to the Hara center, you can live courageously. Courage arises out of it: less thinking, more silence, less uncontrolled moments, natural discipline, courage and rootedness, a groundedness.”

  3. With Hara Centering…every wall falls down as it is created,for to be better,better and better everyday and in every way.

  4. Love this, Charan!

    I especially love the analogy of the tree trunk and I’ll explain why:

    From my other training as a Healing Touch practitioner, we work with the Hara but see it as a column that runs through the center of the body, top to bottom. The point you’re describing below the navel (tan tien) is seen as one of three important points along the hara line and the center of our being, connecting heaven and earth within us. So, I see the analogy of the tree trunk as perfect for describing the hara line! Also, the hara is foundational to the other energy systems–if the hara is damaged or “off”, all other energy systems will be impacted.

    Thanks for sharing your insights! I’ll be investigating these ideas myself now.


  5. Thanks so much Annette. ♡ Purrs back at ya! ♡ :)

  6. Thank you so much for this meditation and the relevance in our lives as a result. Thank you for taking the time to share all this, I am still learning as always, and so will be trying out this myself too. Much appreciated and lots of gratitude. Thank you. ♡ :)

  7. Hi Bonnie…wow, that is SO fascinating! I wrote this article following my inspiration, and really was not aware that the hara line ran all the way down the body. How exciting to hear this information!! I’m just grateful that I followed my inspiration and wrote this article, and as a result it has inspired many of you. Not only that…I’m learning more and more from the sharing. Thank you and SO much gratitude. Much love ♡ :)

  8. PS Bonnie, just curious, where are the other two points along this Hara line?

  9. The other two points along the Hara are the Soul Seat (center of the upper chest–between throat and heart chakras) and the Individuation Point (about 12-18 inches above the head). The Soul Seat is where our life’s purpose resides, it’s who we are. Notice that this is where we always point when telling someone else our name! The Individuation Point is our connection with the Divine and the point at which we differentiate as an individual from Source, Oneness, All That Is.


  10. You’re most welcome. Thanks for following your inspiration to share!

  11. I checked today and found emotions and a wall around my sacral chakra and Hara. I released the sacral chakra wall and lodged emotions and found they all occured between age 5-12 with the events corresponding to issues around power and authority. Once released I had low back pain for about 10 minutes. I can’t wait until I work on my Hara emotions tomorrow and see if it improves my Hara breathing exercises besides giving me more comfort dealing with power issues. I realized this morning this also corresponds to abundance/prosperity issues surrounding power, security and authority. Thank you Charan for continuing to help us through your wise insights. In gratitude!

  12. We have seen walls like these before, in other areas of the body that at some time or other needed to be “protected” by the subconscious mind. Sometimes the results of removing these walls can be quite dramatic. For example, about four years ago a young woman came to me for treatment of vaginismus. She had been married for about 5 months, but because of her condition, her marriage had never been consummated, and the strain on her relationship with her husband was beginning to take a toll, leaving her wondering if her marriage was going to hold together. I found that she actually had a “vaginal wall” that had been created when she was sexually abused as a child. Removing this wall made all the difference in the world. Within about 48 hours her vaginal opening was able to relax and she was happy to report back to me that she was then able to begin having a normal sex life with her husband. I have seen walls like this in other parts of the body as well, but you have come up with a new angle on it, which I am excited to check out. Great work, Charan! – Dr. Brad : )

  13. Hi Bonnie
    This is fantastic information! Thank you so much for sharing. It was interesting, as I have a client who is suffering from depression, and I have worked on removing the heart wall quite a while back and also have used the Body Code. I just checked him for walls around the Soul Seat and Individuation Point and he had walls around there. The emotions that were trapped around there were from when he was younger then 5, and that is the time in one’s life where we have all our imprints put in place for the rest of our life.
    Thank you!
    Much love

  14. Thank YOU Allen!! Your feedback is much appreciated, it’s so much fun playing and allowing this work to happen through us isn’t it? :)
    Love that you were able to make that connection between your power, abundance etc and these walls. Thank you. :)
    Much love
    Charan :)

  15. Hi Dr Brad!
    Thank you for commenting, and giving such a great example of walls in other areas. It’s always great to hear about real cases and the results of this work.
    I’m excited too about this new angle and that is why I was inspired to write the article! :)
    Charan :)

  16. Each contributor here as added so much value I’ve copied to a notepad for further study – thank you so much to each of you and Charan kudos to your inspired message. . .love inspiration. . .and love that you followed up on it. . .


  17. I feel so blessed to have all this information at my finger tips? Thank you all for your input, insight and love into this sacred work!!

  18. Thank you Patricia, and yes certainly I have received more inspiration too! Thank you. :)


  19. Thank you Jill, glad you enjoyed it, and it inspired you.

    Much love
    Charan :)

  20. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. That makes a lot of sense to me. As somebody with shiatsu training, the importance of the Hara as a place of centering ourselves and optimising our energy is something I remember being emphasised. I see the sacral chakra associated with sexuality, creativity and allowing ourselves to enjoy the pleasures of life. Many of us have wounded in those areas so it makes sense that we can have walling there. I’ll experiment with this on myself and my clients.

  21. thank you Charan and everyone for this great sharing.

    an amazing connection because just yesterday I had an inspired thought that I might have a wall of beliefs around money and this morning took the time to release TEs that I had and had picked up from family, from ancestors & from society – lots of yawning and big sighs as I did the clearings – my body is still processing.

    I’ve taken this sharing in and know that there is so much more to explore and appreciate. Thank you!
