The Sacral Chakra relates to all that makes life sweet such as pleasure, sexuality, and soul nourishment. Moving up from the Root Chakra that focuses on a basic existence, the Sacral Chakra adds to the fabric of our existence the things that make life worth living.

The Sacral Chakra is your creative energy center and the sacred space for whatever you want to birth, manifest, and share with the world. It governs pleasure, desire, sexuality, sensuality, creativity, and procreation. When balanced, the Sacral Chakra can be a source of great joy and invites you to tune into your senses and emotions to engage in the sensory experience of living.

How to Tell if Your Sacral Chakra is Unbalanced

An unbalanced Sacral Chakra can affect your Endocrine System and hormones, resulting in a low libido or even infertility. It can also lead to uterine and bladder troubles, kidney issues, a stiff lower back, or anemia. You may feel over-sensitive, be too hard on yourself, or feel a lingering sense of guilt for no identifiable reason.

Because the Sacral Chakra governs our creativity, when it’s unbalanced it can block your creative potential which may manifest as lack of inspiration, inability to pursue your art, loss of interest in creative projects.

If your Sacral Chakra is too open, you may find yourself with a sex addiction, out of control emotions, inappropriate emotional responses, being manipulative with others, or having delusions of grandeur.

The Sacral Chakra in Balance

When your Sacral Chakra is in balance, you can enjoy life to the fullest and feel invigorated by pleasure and joy. You may find you can navigate the polarities of life, trust, express yourself, and tune into your own feelings with much more ease. You will feel a creative spark that radiates within you.

How to Balance Your Sacral Chakra

To balance your Sacral Chakra you can visualize or wear bright shades of orange. Use the pureness of the hue to fill your being, with the center being in your womb space.

You can also engage in pleasurable or sensual rituals or activities or simply do something creative such as dance, write, or paint.

Sufi Grinds are a great way to release stagnant energy and bring more awareness to your Sacral Chakra. Sit in a cross-legged seated position and use your heart space to lead your upper body in circular motions, going from big circles to small.

Affirmations for The Sacral Chakra

I feel pleasure to my core.

I gain vital life force from my pleasure.

I am worthy of love and sexual pleasure.

I am enough.

I have a right to express my desires.

The Sacral Chakra in Your Spiritual Path

Women especially are extremely disconnected from their sacral chakra, so if you’re a man, skip to the next paragraph! As women, our wombs are literal manifestation portals. We set the intention to create life and can literally bring another soul earthside through the power of our own bodies. Yet, because of the way our systems are created, we are taught to feel a lot of shame around our sexuality, our wombs, and especially our bodies and sensuality postpartum.

Because so much of our vitality lives within our Sacral Chakra, it’s so important to nurture our creativity and sensuality. You deserve to feel pleasure. You deserve to have everything you desire. I’m not saying your bedroom has to go full throttle ‘50 Shades of Gray’ but it’s important to find ways to reclaim your own sexual energy that must flow through our system in order to be fully aligned and connected with the Universe.
