As the center of passion, your sacral chakra awakens your power of creation. This allows you to discover what you truly enjoy and create intimate relationships.

The sacral chakra helps cultivate flexibility and adaptability. This empowers you to move on, accept change, and transform. When balanced, the sacral chakra allows you to be passionate, creative, and sensual while connecting with your feelings and emotions.

Imbalanced Sacral Chakra

The chakra system distributes the flow of prana or energy throughout your subtle body. Stress, illness, emotional upset, or conflict all can cause blockages or imbalance in your chakra system. All of the seven chakras are interconnected; when one chakra experiences a blockage or imbalance, it affects all the others. This disruption of energy can cause your mind, body, and spirit to suffer.

When the sacral chakra is imbalanced, it can make you feel emotionally and physically destabilized. If you are working towards creative goals, improving your emotional health, or working on your relationships, it is important that you open and bring balance your sacral chakra.

Underactive Sacral Chakra

When a chakra is underactive, it means that the chakra is experiencing a blockage or is not distributing the flow of energy. When your sacral chakra is underactive, it can affect your overall well being.

When your sacral chakra is blocked or underactive, you may be experiencing a sense of lack of control ranging from uncertainty to an inability to cope with life’s changes. When the sacral chakra becomes blocked, it often detaches you from your emotions and those around you.

How to Recognize If Your Sacral Chakra Is Underactive

  • Fear of Pleasure
  • Lack of Creativity
  • Feel Fatigued
  • Lack of Desire
  • Not Authentic to Yourself
  • Insecurity
  • Detachment

Overactive Sacral Chakra

When a chakra is overactive, it means that the chakra is distributing too much energy. It is working in overdrive and bringing imbalance to the chakra. When your sacral chakra is overactive, it affects your overall well being.

If your second chakra is overactive, you may be experiencing issues of excess and conflict from thriving on drama to having unhealthy relationships. When the sacral chakra is overwhelmed with energy, it will make you feel overwhelmed. You may feel emotions more deeply, experience mood swings, or become overly dependent on others.

  • Emotional Overreactions
  • Dramatic
  • Aggressive
  • Anxiety
  • Excessive Emotional Attachment
  • Codependency
  • Addictive Personality

Connect with Water – The sacral chakra is highly influenced by the element of water. Getting outside and relaxing near or in open water can help open and restore balance to your second chakra. Lakes, rivers, streams, or the ocean are all useful. Wade or dangle your feet in the water to allow your sacral energy to flow. A warm bath or shower can also help aid in balancing your sacral chakra.

Creative Play – As the center of your creativity and passion, it is important to explore new or old hobbies to help open your sacral chakra and let your creative energy flow. Dancing, drawing, writing, or engaging in playful activities are all useful tools to bring the harmonious flow of energy to your sacral chakra.

Yoga Practices for Sacral Chakra – Yoga can be particularly helpful in opening and bringing balance to your sacral chakra. Yoga for sacral balancing should focus on hip-opening poses.

Meditation for Sacral Chakra – Meditation plays an important role in restoring balance to your chakras. Chakra meditation techniques are similar to traditional meditation techniques but focus on a specific area of the body. Below is a simple meditation technique to aid in balancing your sacral chakra.

  • Sit with your shoulders back and spine straight. Relax your muscles as you close your eyes and breathe deeply. Inhale through your nose and exhale through the mouth.
  • Focus your attention on the location of your sacral chakra: your abdomen, a few inches below your navel.
  • Since the sacral chakra is tied to the color of orange, imagine an orange glow below your navel, slowly expanding to the pelvic region and making the whole area warm and relaxed. Rest in this sensation for 3-5 minutes.
  • When you are ready, slowly open your eyes. You may follow with positive affirmations.

Sacral Chakra Affirmations – Affirmations are a positive way to heal negative programming that can be embedded in your subtle body. When balancing your sacral chakra, practice saying the following phrases to yourself:

  1. As See myself as Water, Flowing with Ease
  2. I am radiant, I am passionate.
  3. Pleasure is a sacred part of my life
  4. I love and respect myself and my body
