Red-energy-chakras-150x150What impact does the 2nd or Sacral Chakra have on your mind, body and spirit and how can you balance it if it becomes blocked?  The chakras are energy centers that feed into our aura.  If they are blocked, you may experience challenges with your physical, mental and spiritual bodies.  I go into further detail in the article I published about the root chakra.

The Sacral Chakra is located in the pelvic region.  As I mentioned in the root chakra article, each chakra has a color associated with it.  It is important to know this color as it helps to balance the chakra when it is blocked or out of balance.  The color associated with the sacral chakra is orange.  Since the chakras feed colors into the aura, if you see orange in someone’s aura, you know its source is the sacral chakra.

Here are the areas affected by the sacral chakra:

  • Lower Digestion and Immune System

  • Sexuality and sensuality

  • Fertility

  • Creative life energy and this includes but is not limited to sexual organs and the reproductive system, the kidneys and the bladder.

  • Creativity

  • This is also the link to your inner child—enthusiasm, happiness and joy.

If you are experiencing any challenges with these areas, your sacral chakra is out of balance or blocked.  In the Soul Sessions I perform for others, I often see this chakra blocked with women who are experiencing hormonal imbalances, have experienced sexual abuse, or have had a miscarriage or abortion.  I’ve seen this area blocked in children and adults when they are having digestive problems and/or need to pay closer attention to their nutrition.  However, just as it suggests, if a person is struggling with creative life force or the child-like emotions of enthusiasm and joy, this area should be considered for balancing.

If you see yourself or someone you know that might be experiencing challenges in these areas, one or more of the following may be advantageous to help balance the chakra:

  • Energy healing.  I say this, particularly with this chakra, because balancing it can be difficult.  Lots of emotion can be held there, especially if there has been sexual abuse or emotion around a miscarriage or abortion.  The digestive system is the seat of the immune system.  It may need the kickstart from energy to get it back on track.

  • Using crystal healing stones such as carnelian or coral.  (think orange)  Crystals can be worn on the body in jewelry, dropped in a pocket or slipped into a bra.  Yes, a bra.  They can be slipped under the pillow while sleeping or used in meditation.

  • Wear orange to energize the chakra.

  • Use essential oils directly on the area.  Orange, tangerine and melissa are great options.

I’d love to hear how you have balanced your sacral chakra or what you need help with.
