What Is The Sacral Chakra?
The Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana Chakra) is the second of the seven main chakras, located near the belly button in the lower abdomen.
It is part of the chakra system and one of the lower chakras, just above the Root Chakra and below the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Chakras are energy bodies or energy centres that bring in, concentrate and circulate positive life force energy through your physical body, including your etheric bodies.
Each primary chakra is associated with a gland. The Sacral Chakra is connected with the reproductive organs. This association gives a clue to the importance of the Sacral Chakra and its qualities.
The color orange represents the Sacral Chakra. Often the orange color is an intense orange when awakened or a dull orange when blocked or sluggish. The color is just an association and not set in stone. It will always be unique to your perceptions.
The Sacral Chakra has a strong association with the element of water. This is another reminder of how vital this chakra is, as your body is made up mostly of water.
The water element is life-affirming and giving. It aims to rejuvenate, quench and give deep enjoyment and satisfaction. It is also a very creative element, as, without water, you can't grow or nurture.
The Sacral Chakra is also concerned with sexual energy. However, this is not the sexual energy for procreation as the Root Chakra governs, but rather an expression of desire, lust, physical enjoyment, and connection.
Sacral Chakra Awakening Symptoms
When a chakra is awakening, it means it is undergoing positive change. For example, it may indicate that the chakra is opening, expanding in size and strengthening (or holding more positive energy). This results in the amplification and enhancement of the positive qualities of the Sacral Chakra.
The Sacral Chakra opening symptoms are the qualities of the positive attributes of the chakra becoming more profound and integrating, resulting in possible spiritual development.
The sacral energy is profoundly creative. This creative energy and creative power is often the driving force behind personal and spiritual development.
When worked with, the energies may be able to bring about deep creative processes and creative expression.
This enhanced creative potential may result in a clearing, letting things go and building and developing something in alignment with yourself.
The Sacral Chakra concerns your inner strength and how you are as a person. While the Solar Plexus Chakra is all about the expression of self, the Sacral Chakara concerns self-awareness. Therefore, it is the dwelling place of the self.
When the Sacral Chakra is awakening, you may find that you feel more comfortable in your skin. You may develop a love and fondness of yourself for being you. Your inner strength may grow, and you may find that healthy personal boundaries strengthen.
As this chakra is associated with the water element, the energies associated with this chakra tend to have an emotional aspect. These qualities are profound and reach deep into personal and spiritual experiences.
This means that when this chakra awakens, it may assist in experiencing balanced and appropriate emotional awareness.
As a result, you may feel things you have not experienced, your compassion may increase, and spiritual awareness expands.
As this chakra awakens and strengthens, a concentrating of your internal energies may occur. It pulls in grounding energies from the lower chakras and spiritually focused energies from the higher chakras.
Mixing and consistently balancing higher and lower chakra energies may assist in feeling more energetically centred.
When you feel energetically centred, your spiritual awareness may become more balanced and consistent and expand further. This is an essential aspect of spiritual awareness, which may then translate into spiritual discoveries and development.
Through gaining insights and spiritual discoveries, you may then gain moments of enlightenment.
Passion is an essential aspect of this chakra. Passion connected with this chakra may be anything from feeling passion for your life purpose, pleasure, sexual activity, or just feeling alive.
These energies are tremendously creative, as passion may enhance your spiritual development and push you forward. When this happens, you may be better able to clear things that no longer serve you and live more in the moment.
Pleasure, Fun and Enjoyment
When this chakra starts to awaken, you may begin to palpably feel and experience a more profound expression of pleasure, fun and enjoyment.
This may not be limited to just one area of life; it may include reconnecting with projects, people, experiences, hobbies and establishing intimate connections.
As an extension of experiencing more profound moments of pleasure, fun and enjoyment, you may start to notice more meaningful experiences.
Meaningful experiences do not necessarily mean you will only have positive experiences; the focus is on meaningful.
Every occasion may allow you to be more aware of dynamics, energies and what they may mean to you. Good or bad, you may have the opportunity to learn, develop and grow.
Intimate Relationships And Connections
As mentioned above, this chakra is about pleasure, creativity and connection. As you work on awakening this chakra, you may find that intimate connections may strengthen.
While there is no guarantee of the health of the relationship (there are many reasons for intimacy issues; you should always consult an expert before considering energy healing), intimacy from this space tends to be creative and enjoyable.
Overactive Sacral Chakra
Chakras work with subtle energies, meaning it is essential not to blame an overactive or blocked chakra for problems, especially physical issues.
Never assume a chakra causes a physical, mental or emotional issue. Always consult a medical professional before considering energy healing.
When there is an excessive sacral chakra, often the result of an imbalanced sacral chakra, you can expect the positive qualities mentioned above to become excessive.
The positive qualities may start to become inconsistent. For example, if the Sacral Chakra is overactive, holding too much energy, you may seek pleasure in everything. This is not consistent and may, with time, become damaging. Of course, there may be many reasons for this, so don't assume it is always due to chakras.
Blocked Sacral chakra
When a chakra is blocked, it does not mean the chakra no longer works. A blocked chakra does not stop the chakra from functioning entirely. It is probably better to describe it as an underactive Sacral Chakra, when the flow of energy is reduced.
However, when you have a deficient Sacral Chakra, you may experience some subtle symptoms that may suggest a reduction in the functioning of the chakra.
Sacral Chakra energy that is sluggish, blocked, inconsistent or not optimal may result in the following subtle symptoms:
- Reduced enjoyment.
- Limited spiritual awareness.
- Lack of motivation.
- Fear of change.
I want to state again that never assume if you have any of these symptoms, a chakra causes them.
Chakras hold subtle energies, so it is improbable to be the cause of any serious issues. Always consult a medical professional before considering energy healing.
Always try and practice common sense and have realistic expectations about energy healing and subtle energies.
Sacral Chakra Healing
The energy of the second chakra, like all chakras, can be enhanced by different methods. This may enhance, balance, clear, reduce or increase the chakra's subtle energies.
The listed ways below can either increase, decrease or maintain optimal energies in the Sacral Chakra.
Probably the best way of working with chakras, including the Sacral Chakra, is through energy healing.
Energy healing aims to work with energies with the aim of a positive outcome. As such, you can work with energy healing to direct energies with the aim of the optimal functioning of the Sacral Chakra.
Attunements are popular ways of working with chakras. Attunements are energetic tools created to achieve a result quickly and straightforwardly.
For example, I recommend considering the Sacral Chakra Activation Maintenance Attunement, which aims to activate, repair, clear and enhance the optional function of the Sacral Chakra.
Sacral Chakra Crystals
Working with crystals is another popular way to enhance your chakras. For example, as the Sacral Chakra has the color orange, selecting and working with any orange crystal may be beneficial.
The idea is that if you take a crystal of a colour that corresponds with the color of the chakra, you may be able to heal, clear and ensure the optimal functioning of the chakra.
For example, orange agate and orange calcite are the best crystals to consider for Sacral Chakra healing.
If you like working with essential oils, you may want to consider floral scents such as ylang ylang, patchouli or rose. These uplifting oils may enhance the Sacral Chakra's functioning and boost passion and creativity.
Adding a few small drops to a warm bath is a beautiful way to work with essential oils.
Always ensure you work with essential oils safely and never add pure essential oil directly to your skin. Also, be aware that many essential oils are not pet-friendly and may be toxic to them.
Surrounding yourself with the colour orange is one of the most simple ways to stimulate the Sacral Chakra. Eating orange foods is an interesting way to achieve this. Always eat a balanced and nutritious diet, though.
Chakra Meditation Techniques
Meditation helps to calm the body and mind and focuses on intention. This may be beneficial to ensure the optimal functioning of your Sacral Chakra.
When you meditate and are in a calm state, hold a gentle intention to activate, awaken and maintain an optimally functioning chakra. You can use any meditation technique that suits you best.
Identifying what the Sacral Chakra awakening symptoms may be beneficial for your ongoing personal and spiritual development.
Working to ensure an optimally functioning Sacral Chakra may assist you on your spiritual path and further spiritual growth.
