The Sacral Chakra is the second energy centre we meet, up from the base of the spine. This one connects very much with your emotions, your creativity, your relationships and even your appetite! This centre can very easily be stressed or out of balance as emotions can be tricky things to deal with. They run so deep and so powerfully and yet we can be very slow to acknowledge them, let alone express them effectively.
Our feelings don’t always make sense but they need to be aired, understood and released just the same. It is thought that unexpressed or locked in emotions can be the trigger for many illnesses and diseases – this is the reasoning behind psychosomatic illness and a great deal of metaphysical literature aligns with this too.
This Second Chakra connects with the colour orange and it has a much more flowing and sensual feel to the energy here. Although both the base and the sacral chakras relate to sex, the base was more about the physical act itself, the sacral is very much more about your feelings, your senses and your desires, the more intangible side of your sexuality.
Indicators of the Sacral Chakra Being in Balance:
This chakra is your pleasure centre, it’s about the people, the things and situations that you love, the things you attract to you and the things you dislike. It is easy for this centre to be out of balance and you may find that you want to overindulge in some of the things that bring you pleasure.
