What is the Sacral Chakra?
The Sacral Chakra is located below the navel and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body. It is the center of the Life Force of the body. It is the reservoir of the life force and all life flows out from the Sacral Chakra. It controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other “non-linear” communication come from this Chakra.
When it is out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex, and frustration and bitterness.
When it is in balance you have grace, feel pleasure in life, enjoy yourself, play, and find you are flexible in both body and mind. You can “go with the flow” of your life and times, and do so in good spirits.
Symptoms it’s out of Balance or Blocked:
- Repressing your feelings
- Dependency upon others
- Feeling frustrated or bitter
- Fear of intimacy or sex
- Lack of motivation
- Unable to feel joy or happiness
Things That Can Help
Treat imbalances of the Sacral Chakra with orange crystals (such as Carnelian, Sunstone, Crocoite, and Creedite) to unblock the energy flow and restore your sense of balance and understanding and appreciation of your place in life.
Augment crystal therapy with yoga exercises that emphasize balance. Engage in creative activities, such as painting, writing, composing, and acting to free up the creative energy, and of course, nothing will help as much as getting out on flowing water and reconnecting with the flow of nature.
We also suggest using crystal aromatherapy products designed for the Sacral Chakra.
