The sacral chakra (sanskrit = Svadisthana) is the 2nd chakra in the Chakra Series. Represented by the colour orange, it is located one or two iches below the belly button.
It is responsible for passion, emotional stability, feelings and sensations.
When the sacral chakra is in balance, we feel open minded, open hearted and have a zest for life. We feel compassionate and emotionally stable, sensual and intimate.
On the converse, when out of balance, we feel closed minded, not very open. We feel disconnected from our physical and mental body. It stems from the society we live in, if we let it affect us. Same with sexuality and relationships, on some level it is glorified, then on the converse it is rejected and frowned upon. Confusing and unsettling things in the news and media, can have an effect on open mindedness, relationships and money.
The best thing we can do to keep this chakra in balance….
Anything you create or do with passion is great for this chakra.
Be it spending time with a loved one, friends family…
creating or doing something with passion, be it yoga, colouring in with your neice, swimming, meditating, going for jog or a walk, making a poem, writing a blog post, being creative with food and drink…. anything creative and passionate will help balance this chakra.
When this chakra is open, it allows us to be passionate, open, sensual, creative and connected.
It fills you with a sense of life, where if you focus on your passions and don’t let life and external worries drag you down too much… you feel much more at peace.
