The Sacral Chakra
What is the Sacral Chakra and Where is it Located?
The Sacral Chakra, or the “Svadihsthana” in Sanskrit meaning “where your being is established”, is the motion and emotion-filled energy center that controls how you experience pleasure and contributes to how you express your needs and wants in the world around you. The Sacral Chakra allows you to exercise your ability to show others your needs, contributing to your sense of stability. This energy center can be disrupted by various circumstances, including an inability to feel validated or validate others in their place in the world. It is also connected to your sexual urges and desires and can often be influenced by your experiences during puberty and young adulthood.
The Sacral Chakra is located in the body center below the navel, where the womb and pelvis sit. The Sacral Chakra, placed in the center of the body, is what gives your center of grounding and the ability to feel your emotional and physical wants and needs and express them to others.
What does the Sacral Chakra Do?
Resonating with the color orange, the Sacral Chakra allows you to understand humanity and sexuality more expressively and securely. Its orange sunset hue can help establish waves of desire and the cultivation of emotion throughout your energy field and in your emotional body. The Sacral Chakra resonates with experiences that bring out what our spirit craves on the deepest level and according to our soul plan/contracts.
The main function of the Sacral Chakra is to enhance and determine how you express what you need to feel stable and protected in the world. The energy of this center also controls desire and your expression of sexuality and safety in relation to your emotional energy. There are a bunch of different techniques for exercising and maintaining the Sacral Chakra's energy, including journaling, talk therapy, tantric exploration, self-massage, intimacy-building practices, and being radically honest with yourself and those around you about what you want and need on a daily basis.

What Are the Signs of a Blocked Sacral Chakra?
The Sacral Chakra is in a central region of the lower midsection that is prone to weight retention, muscular issues, spinal tension, and problems with balance making it susceptible to imbalance. There are many symptoms or side effects that you may experience if your chakra is blocked or imbalanced. Let's review...
A blocked Sacral Chakra can disrupt your spiritual and physical health and manifest itself in things like an upset stomach, sexual tension and discomfort, and issues expressing yourself or your needs to people or organizations involved in your life. You may find problems with material security or financial means, complicated relationships and commitments, and a struggle to find your passion or career path.
How do I Unblock my Sacral Chakra?
There are plenty of easy, DIY remedies to help fix an imbalanced or blocked Sacral Chakra, including practicing meditation, hip-opening yoga poses, and encouraging circulation to the lower half of the body. It's also helpful to practice good spinal posture in the lumbar region of the spine by bending at the waist frequently - especially for people who work in seated positions! Expressing your desires regularly to yourself through journaling and to others through conversation and radical honesty is also key to unblocking your Sacral Chakra. Additionally, consider utilizing resources like mental health therapy or life coaching to get your needs and desires outside your mind, or try simple reflective work like meditation or daily affirmations to reinforce your willpower and desires.
Chakra Healing Meditation for the Sacral Chakra
Here's a guide on how to perform a cleansing meditation for the Sacral Chakra at home:
Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can sit peacefully. Take a seat, ensuring your spine is straight, and your shoulders are relaxed. Place your hands on your lower abdomen, with your palms facing upwards.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, allowing yourself to relax and release any tension. Feel your body settling into a state of calmness.
Visualize a warm, glowing orange light in your lower abdomen, representing your Sacral Chakra. Envision this light growing brighter and more vibrant with each breath you take.
As you focus on the orange light, imagine it gently swirling and expanding within your Sacral Chakra, releasing any emotional blockages or stagnant energy. See it flowing freely and harmoniously.
With each inhale, feel the orange light spreading throughout your lower abdomen, nurturing and balancing your Sacral Chakra. Embrace the sensations of creativity, passion, and joy associated with this energy center.
Repeat positive affirmations that resonate with the sacral chakra. Use statements like, "I embrace my creative power" or "I allow pleasure and joy to flow through me."
Stay in this meditative state, focusing on the sensations in your lower abdomen and the radiant orange light. If your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to the visualization and the energy of your sacral chakra.
When you're ready to conclude the meditation, take a few deep breaths and gradually bring your awareness back to your surroundings. Open your eyes and take a moment to appreciate the renewed sense of creativity and vitality within you.
Regular practice of this Sacral Chakra cleansing meditation can help balance and enhance your creative energy and emotional well-being. Embrace the fluidity and joy!
