How To Balance and Heal Your Sacral Chakra

Chakra Energy

Heal your sacral chakra and let go of shame around sex, relationships, passion, and joy. Find meditations, books, and crystals to heal your second chakra.

The Sanskrit name for this energy center is Swadhisthana.

This is the second in a series of posts about the energy centers of the body. I have also written posts about the First Chakra, Third Chakra, Fourth Chakra, Fifth Chakra and Sixth Chakra.

The second chakra appears just below the naval in the lower abdomen area. Physically, this chakra represents the area of reproduction and sexual organs. It governs your hips, groin, bladder, and large intestine. The color orange and the element of water represent this chakra.

Balance and Heal the Sacral Chakra – Creativity Abounds!

When the sacral chakra is in balance, it represents an outpouring of creativity through newborn thoughts and ideas. It also governs healthy relationships and your everyday interactions with people in your daily lives, the ability to cope with day-to-day events, and healthy emotional attachments to people.

This chakra is about learning to consciously interact with others around you in a healthy manner. It represents physical grace, the Law of cause and effect, and choices that you make.

The Hot Sex Chakra or Groin Chakra

The sacral chakra is perhaps best known for governing sexuality. This involves warm and loving attitudes about the creation of life, sex, fertility, procreation, and emotions.

Think of this chakra as an outlet for your creative energy. Since it is all about creation, sex does play an important role. You can also balance this chakra by finding other outlets for your creative energy. Building something that you can see, feel, or touch will help to channel this energy. Think about your passions. What are you excited to do next? How can you use that excitement in a positive manner?

Sacral Chakra Imbalance Symptoms

When this chakra is out of balance, issues of self-respect, fear of losing control, financial loss, ability to survive and thrive, and poorly balanced relationships are present. Eating issues such as anorexia and bulimia, along with buried emotions and depression connect to an unbalanced second chakra.

Blockages can manifest into sexual problems such as infertility, impotence, lack of sexual desire, and physical awkwardness, all having their roots within this second energy center. Think about how much shame is attached to sex in general. How much shame is attached to indulging in things that are pleasurable?

Negative thoughts and actions arising out of fear also drain energy from this chakra. Energy given to dead-end jobs or relationships, domination by others or situations, gossip and manipulation drain life from this energy center. Problems with survival or the ability to survive hit home here too.

Orange and the Second Chakra

The color orange is a warm vibrant color that represents the sacral chakra. It has an intense high energy. Think of it as a bed of glowing embers that radiates warmth and heat to the rest of the body.

Wearing the color orange can bring this chakra into balance. Even touches of it, such as jewelry or earrings can have a balancing effect. Decorate your home with orange flowers or pumpkins or other orange accent pieces to bring the chakra into harmony.

2nd Chakra Foods

You can heal the sacral chakra by eating fresh oranges, pomegranates, raw carrots, pumpkin, salmon, and other orange-colored foods.

Drinking plenty of water helps the chakra to flow properly as well.

The Energetic Reason You’re Not Where You Want To Be

Christie Marie Sheldon Unlimited Abundance

Everything is connected. That’s why, when one area of your life is unbalanced – say, stress from working long hours trying to get ahead – everything else seems so much harder.

This is especially true when it comes to abundance. When you’re constantly worried about paying the bills or going to a job you hate every day, everything else gets put on the back burner.

Suddenly, you have no room to develop or grow. That’s what is called an ‘Abundance Block’.

They can be tricky to uncover on your own, which is why I’m so excited to introduce Mindvalley’s free ‘Unblock Your Abundance’ Masterclass featuring the incredible Christie Marie Sheldon.

And you’re cordially invited >>

If you haven’t heard of Christie before, she’s a remarkable woman with a special gift… The ability to connect with other people so that they start to magnetically attract success and abundance on autopilot.

Not only will you get to learn what Christie’s methods are all about, but you’ll also get to experience a 20-minute Energy Clearing session guided by Christie that will permanently erase one of the biggest ‘Abundance Blocks’ affecting most people today.

  1. I’m so glad I found your site! Who needs to go to the bookstore when we can get info right here:)

    Psychic intuition is a product of balanced energy centers and connectedness. Those who are naturally intuitive will often acknowledge the influence of some greater power that aids them in their psychic perception. Often, their bodies and minds become messengers of divine information. Although they may not be aware of it, their chakras are most likely facilitating their experience. They are channels for psychic energy as they allow universal power to move through them.

    Thanks again!


  2. Dear Laura
    I was giving a realxing/nurturing (only) AN MO massage to a lady whose body temperature at the Sacral Chakra (front and back) was well warmer, even hot compared to the rest of her body.
    This was definitely with a reason and I would be grateful if you could shed some light on this.
    Many thanks
