The Sacral Chakra (Svadhisthana) is your 2nd chakra located about 3 inches below the navel at the centre of your lower belly. It’s linked to your creativity, emotional body and sensuality. Its element is water and its energy represents flow and flexibility.
Orange is the colour of the Sacral Chakra and the primary driver of this energy centre is pleasure and passion. It governs the belly body, so your sexual organs, kidneys, bladder and large intestines.
It’s associated with our emotions, and it’s the centre of our feelings. Anything related to creativity, fantasies, relationships and sensual pleasure are the behavioural functions of the sacral chakra.
It plays a key part in our sexuality and our expression of sensual and sexual desires. Think of anything to do with the enjoyment of life through your senses so taste, sound, touch or sight.
Opening your sacral chakra is linked to improving your state of feeling comfortable, healthy and happy. When this chakra is balanced you radiate warmth, playfulness and good humour.
To balance your Sacral Chakra do more of what makes you happy. Again yoga, dancing and simply having fun helps. There’s specific poses in yoga like “sun salutations” for those who wish to control this centre of pleasure and passion. Meditation is also key and once I’ve talked through the 7 chakras, I’ll leave you with a simple meditation exercise.
