The sacral chakra, also known as the second chakra, it is located two inches below your belly button and is represented by the color orange. This chakra governs your emotions, creativity, sensitivity, sexuality, intimacy, emotional well-being, and self-expression. When your sacral chakra is open, you'll feel in touch with your emotions, stimulated and full of ideas. Alignment in this chakra also gives you the confidence to make significant changes to the way you live your life. When you are in tune with how you feel and your creative juices are flowing; the vision you have for what you want in life becomes clearer.
The sacral chakra helps cultivate flexibility and adaptability. This empowers you to move on, accept change, and transform in times of sudden life changes. When this chakra is balanced; the sacral chakra allows you to be passionate about your desires, creative in self-expression, and sensual when connecting with your partner.
When this chakra is aligned you deepen your connection during intimacy. Intercourse will begin to change from an act of impulse to an intentional expression. Allowing you to become in tune with your physical needs and spiritually connecting you to your partner. The act of becoming one merges you and your partner to a greater level of trust, communication and respect. Such a beautiful vibe to experience! When the sacral chakra is balanced; intercourse changes to a sacred act. Taking intercourse to love making and genitals to 'Yoni'.
Yoni is a Sanskrit word for "a woman's sacred space"; below your belly button is sacred Queens and Kings!
The most common ways to balance your sacral chakra, your 'orange ball of energy', is to:
Work with the color orange... seeing the color frequently is an energy filled reminder that promotes grounding.
Go for foods that nourish the sacra lchakra.... carrots, mango, oranges, orange peppers, peaches, apricots, and sweet potatoes, (foods rich in Omega-3s, such as salmon).
Do some hip-opening stretches or yoga postures.... physically stretching below the belly button also acts as a grounding technique.
Do a chakra-balancing affirmation.... don't worry I got you covered, just keep reading. But first you must recognize when your sacral chakra is blocked or unbalanced. When your sacral chakra is blocked or under-active, you may be experiencing a lack of control, ranging from uncertainty in being able to cope with life's changes. When the sacral chakra becomes blocked, it often detaches you from your emotions and those around you. If you notice yourself indulging in emotions that do not promote self-love or royalty behavior, then this is a major sign that your sacral chakra needs balancing. Especially if you notice yourself putting a wall up towards others; dig into your 'why'. Why am I feeling disconnected, stand-offish, lacking communication or person interaction?
