Your Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra

Moving up from the root chakra we find our 2nd chakra, 
the sacral.

Located at the lower abdomen, about two inches below the navel, the sacral chakra is connected to 
pleasure, desires, sexuality, and our well-being.

It represents our ability to connect with others 
and is the seat of our emotions.

Sanskrit Name – Svadhisthana “sweetness”

Represented – a lotus of 6 petals

Color - orange

Element – water

Planet – Pluto

Astrological sign – Cancer, Scorpio

Associated sense – taste

Sound – oh (mow)

Animal – alligator

Archetype – Sovereign/Martyr

Food – liquids

Crystals – carnelian, golden topaz, tiger's eye

Glandular Connection – ovaries, testes Associated

Body Parts – sex organs, bladder, prostate, womb

Physical Imbalance – impotence, frigidity, lower back pain, bladder and prostate issues

Emotional Imbalance – emotional instability, feelings of isolation, unbalanced sex drive

The Sanskrit name, Svadhisthana translates roughly as 
“to sweeten” and this chakra is all about sweets!

The sacral chakra is: 
optimism - desire - activity - pleasure - happiness - change - creativity - passion

With an overstimulated sacral chakra, we are overly focused on satisfying our desires.

If our sacral chakra is depleted, we may be depriving ourselves of pleasure. Our creativity and passions could be stifled.

A balanced 2nd chakra brings a passionate approach to life, 
full of vitality.

There are many ways to heal and 
balance the sacral chakra.
You can try one or combine many for 
more beneficial results.

  • Eat oranges, cantaloupes, and carrots. Nuts are a good sacral chakra food, too.
  • Drink plenty of liquids.
  • Wear orange clothes.
  • Be creative! Take on a hobby and let out your inner artist.
  • Use yoga postures such as cobra and pelvic tilting.
  • Meditate focusing on your sacral chakra. Chant the sound sound "oh" as in the word mow.
  • Use crystals. Choose one and carry it with you. Meditate with it.
  • Use affirmations. I have listed six excellent affirmations below for balancing your 2nd chakra.
  • Use essential oils. Remember, oils are the souls of plants. This plant energy can help balance our energy.
