Updated: Jan 11, 2023

Do you find yourself seeking pleasure outside of yourself?

Perhaps you’re struggling with compulsive behaviors? You’re emotionally reactive? Or you’re creatively repressed?

What people don’t usually know is that unbalanced chakra symptoms don’t occur just because they’re blocked. They’re a result of your chakra being overactive OR underactive. In this blog, I’m delving into the specifics of the Sacral Chakra. We’ll explore the power of the Sacral Chakra and how an unbalanced Sacral Chakra manifests itself. Plus, you’ll get best practices to heal your Sacral Chakra if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms.

Have I got your attention, yet?

What is The Sacral Chakra?

The Sacral Chakra is the second chakra and it represents our source of creativity and sexuality.

Its ENTIRE purpose is to activate desire, pleasure, intimacy, artistry, connection, and sensitivity.

And for the female, it’s largely associated with sexual desire.

The focus of The Sacral Chakra is the will to feel and be emotional and expressive.

If we're looking at the back, The Sacral Chakra is in the lumbar spine area. Or just below the navel if we’re looking at the front.

The body parts that are most associated with The Sacral Chakra would be the reproductive organs, the bladder, large and small intestines, and the appendix.

What Are The Signs Your Sacral Chakra is in Alignment?

I like to use the archetype of a Belly Dancer. She can be an example of someone who has a very clear and aligned Sacral Chakra.

There's a female embodiment, a goddess energy. There's seduction, attractiveness, and connection. There is trust and surrender. There is a magnetism she radiates and she knows it...And it's of course, movement in the hips and belly.

When you have an aligned Sacral Chakra you are living life to the fullest. You’re going after your dreams and have healthy self-expression to support it. You have a desire for connection with others and a healthy sexual appetite.

Think of a powerful, glowing, vital feminine goddess.

That's the sacral chakra. Even for men, it's still the same; that goddess energy is relevant no matter your gender identity.

What Are The Signs Your Sacral Chakra is Out of Alignment

If your sacral chakra is out of alignment, you will be addicted to anything that brings you pleasure.

Common signs could be:

  • Overeating

  • Unconscious Promiscuity

  • Alcoholism

You seek these because you don't have natural pleasure in your body. You're looking for pleasure OUTSIDE of yourself.

Remember this 👇🏽

Your Sacral Chakra is not just blocked. It’s UNDERACTIVE or OVERACTIVE.

You might be emotionally unbalanced either overly sensitive, or completely numb. You might have low libido, or you might be sexually impulsive.

Nothing you do is balanced.

When you are radiant and you embrace your Sacral Energy, you're dancing with life.

Your Feminine Energy

When I had a full in-person Reiki business, I noticed that most women had an unbalanced Sacral Chakra.

Many of my clients were aware of this. And they were looking for that joie-de-vivre, but there was something that was gone.

They didn’t know where to look.

If you're in the online coaching industry or entrepreneurial space you'll notice there's a lot of emphasis on a wild seductive woman. Tapping into your Sacral energy. But often, it’s not always a healthy representation, and it’s often forced.

You HAVE to understand that we’re going for balance, and that’s going to look different for everybody.

Physical Manifestations

The physical manifestations of The Sacral Chakra energy being out of alignment are:

  • Anemia

  • High hypoglycemia

  • Lower back pain

  • Joint problems

  • Low energy

  • Spleen and kidney issues

  • Premenstrual and fertility issues

What’s interesting is I’ve personally healed a lot around my period cramps, not getting my period, and other feminine issues.

Take note. Have you experienced the same?

How Does it Come Out of Alignment?

The number one reason your sacral chakra will be out of alignment is because of a blocked Root Chakra.

In one of my previous blogs, I talked about the Root Chakra, and how it’s the center of our basic survival as humans.

When the Root Chakra is out of alignment, it affects the other chakras, pulling from their energy.

Think of it like this. 👇🏽 If your Root Chakra is imbalanced, you're experiencing a lack of safety. The Sacral chakra is all about feminine, creative, intuitive, sexual expression, and you have to feel safe to express this.

If you don't feel safe doing that then the Sacral will be out of alignment.

Another way that the sacral chakra will go out of alignment is through internalized control.

This has a lot to do with shame/trauma.

Perhaps you were part of a certain religion where certain sexual desires are restricted. Perhaps your partner is trying to control you. Or suddenly you feel like you're not allowed to express yourself in a certain way. Maybe you have a history of being abused.

Because you or someone else is controlling the expression that wants to come out, the power dynamics leave you feeling restricted.

How to Start Healing

To truly heal, you NEED to understand where you're feeling restricted by yourself, or another.

Where you’re NOT allowing yourself to feel desire.

You can try it with a Reiki practitioner, other modalities, or alone. Whatever works for YOU.

Moving your body and giving love to the tummy can awaken your Sacral Chakra too. Try activities such as:

  • Hip opening poses: Open Angle, Baddha Konasana, Upavistha Konasana

  • Belly dancing to connect with your body

  • Swimming to start activation
