The Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra 

The 2nd chakra is the Sacral Chakra. It’s location is right below the belly button and extends to your sexual organs. This chakra governs your ability to create, your zest for life, your passions and emotions. In Sanskrit it’s Svadhishana. This chakra is the home of the creative life force energy that helps you enjoy your life.

The color associated with this chakra is orange. The element is water. The planet is Jupiter. The sound is “vam” which you can chat during meditation. The yoga poses to aid in opening your sacral chakra are those that open the hips  such as downward facing dog, seated side stretch, standing forward fold, sun salutation. Eat foods that are orange. When you are meditating visualize a glowing orange ball at your lower abdomen and spreading outward.

When your chakra is balanced you have a smooth creative flow, healthy sexual desire and a positive outlook. When it’s out of balance you will feel needy or withdrawn, have fear of intimacy, sexual problems or disfunction. Underactive can cause impotence, decreased sex drive, lack of passion and creativity. When it’s overactive it can manifest in addictions and gluttony, obesity, restlessness and hormone imbalance. It can manifest in physical symptoms as ED (erectile disfunction), hormone imbalance, intestinal disorder. To balance this chakra, find a creative activity you enjoy such as painting, drawing, dance. Meditate and journal to process your emotions. Work on forgiveness of yourself and others.
