Sacral Chakra-The Pleasure Center
Today we are diving into the deliciousness of the Sacral Chakra!
As you may already know, chakras are energy centers in the body. It is fairly commonly accepted in the West that there are seven main chakras along the centerline of the human body. We discussed the Solar Plexus Chakra in a previous post if you’d like to go back and visit that information again.
The chakras are numbered from the bottom to the top; the 1st chakra being the Root or Base at the tailbone and the 7th chakra being the Crown at the top of the head. The Sacral is the 2nd chakra and is located between your pubic bone and your belly button, cradled nicely in your pelvis at the lower abdomen.
The Sacral is associated with the color orange, the element water, the Moon, the planet Pluto, our sex organs, bladder, prostate, womb, sacral nerve plexus and kidneys. The affirmation statement is “I FEEL.” In sound healing it is balanced by the note D and can be toned with your own voice using the “ooo” sound as in the word you or the seed sound Vam which you can find many tracks and meditations for on YouTube.
Psychologically, our second chakra is about our individuality and unique personality, our connections to others and relationship, creativity, passion, nurturing and satisfaction.
Imbalances in the sacral chakra can look like fear of intimacy, sex issues, destructive behaviors and inability to manage emotions. ‘All work and no play’ is a common saying for an imbalanced second chakra.
This energy center is focused on doing things we are passionate about, creation and the enjoyment of living. It deal with pleasure and is blocked by guilt. Forgiveness brings clearing.
Emotions associated with the sacral chakra feel like: guilt, lack of creativity, inability to connect to others, low self-worth, rejection and betrayal.
On the foot this is the heel area.
If your feet are often sore at the heel or you are feeling any of the above emotions, you may want to incorporate more play, fun and the color orange into your life. Take some time to do things you personally enjoy, maybe eat an orange or some carrots or sweet potatoes. Try a few I feel statements: I feel creative. I feel passionate about life. I feel at peace. Wear that orange tie, shirt or socks you’ve got laying around. Extra bonus points if you pull on a pair of orange underoos!
Some good essential oils for the sacral chakra are: orange, ylang ylang, neroli, sandalwood & jasmine.
Go forth and enjoy all the pleasures of life my friends!
