Our sacral chakra is located in the area below your navel, lower abdomen, low-back and sexual organs. The basic issues affected are creativity, sexuality, money, relationships, empathy, nurturing, pleasure, emotions, movement, change, warmth, and intimacy. It represents your ability to go with the flow – grace and acceptance and allowing yourself to enjoy your life and achievements. The associated body parts are your hips, lower back, sexual organs, bladder, kidneys, stomach, large intestine, pelvis, appendix, and bodily fluids.
Our roles are affected by the programming in this area of fear of abandonment, financial security, social status, children, and creativity. You can be controlled by your fears, level of trust, guilt and shame. This area is concerned with daily aspects of living, people to whom we relate, and quality of our relationships. It also relates to everything we own, money, relationships, and passions.
If you are feeling pain or discomfort in your any of these body locations, it may be an indication that there are some emotional issues that need clearing. I see this every day with my clients. Low back pain has a high association with money issues among other things. If you do not have a habit of safely expressing your emotions, it is likely that your lower body is holding onto these emotions until you are ready to process them. Unexpressed and unprocessed emotions do not go away; they take up residence in your energetic and physical bodies.
Balanced Chakra: A healthy and open sacral chakra means you are friendly and open with yourself, others and nature. You possess great vitality and readily express empathy for others. Creativity and emotions flow with enthusiasm and you are naturally joyful and innately intuitive. You are in touch with your sexuality and a healthy sexual union with your partner which makes your body and spirit healthy.
Unbalanced Chakra: An unhealthy sacral chakra mean you are either shy, timid, or immobilized by fear. You may seem or feel frigid, cold emotionally and sexually. Tensions in this chakra manifest as inner conflict, sexual problems, instability and a sense of isolation.
