Sacral Chakra Energy Center
Your Sacral Chakra Energy Center lies just below your naval and is often called the center of “ones own place”. This is your power center or life force energy center, it is this center that most accurately expresses your creative ideas, self-expression and joy. Through this center comes the manifestations of your creations into the physical arena of life. What you create in your life to experience will be determined by the thoughts behind your desires. How you view and perceive life is determined by how balanced and free flowing this Chakra is.
Your perceptions of who your are, or who you believe yourself to be, are often thought forms or beliefs taken on as your own truth. Your life experiences, events, society and family are all outside influences that help to define who you become along life’s journey. Issues in ones life, such as anxiety, lack of self-expression, guilt, stress, doubts, sexual activity, feelings of inferiority and disease in the body are indicators of an unbalanced Chakra. Many issues are usually caused by underlying fears that came about as a result of some sort of trauma experienced during ones life. You will find that self-worth, self-esteem, self-expression, self-love, as well as your ability to connect with others in loving, compassionate and nurturing ways, are all governed through the Sacral Chakra. If you are having troubles in any of these areas you probably have an “Under-Active Sacral Chakra.”
Some other symptoms may include: a low sex drive, chronic fatigue, a lazy attitude, lack of motivation and creative inspiration. You will often be unable to fit in with others easily or relate on a personal level with another. You often take no time for yourself to enjoy the simple pleasures surrounding you. Having an overall, negative outlook on life is another good indication of having an unbalanced energy center.
Having an “Over Active Sacral Chakra” is as equally challenging as having an under active one. You may find that creating drama in your life is the norm for you. Being overly emotional, mentally anxious and stressed out to the max are a normal day for you. You find people and events very challenging especially when they do not perform up to your standards. You will find you can not sit still, your mind is in overdrive and all you want to do is work, work, work! You may even be overly attached and emotionally dependent upon another person or even to your work. Sexual addiction is another major signal to watch for as this is an easy one to notice within relationships.
Whether your under or over active the body will surely let you know one way or another. Some of the physical symptoms may show up in the body as digestive disorders, sexual dysfunctions and urinary infections to name a few.
When the Sacral is balanced and flowing freely you will find you want to live life to the fullest every single day. You begin to experience your true authentic self and a renewed zest for life. You are able to freely express yourself to others with compassion and unconditional acceptance of who they are. You thoroughly enjoy your sexuality without it ruling your life. Your desire to create and enjoy the various forms of artistic expression as it becomes a sensory experience for you. You begin to see how all the pieces of the puzzle clearly fit together to make up your life’s story. You find yourself open to change and are willing to step into uncharted territory with joy and enthusiasm. Life feels good to you, you may still have some ups and downs, but that is what propels you forward to create and manifest what you truly desire to experience.
As one matures and the Sacral is fully developed and balanced, ones soul then turns towards a conscious, spiritual journey on a path to enlightenment. The center stimulates the higher Chakra centers to open more and ones focus turns from a physical experience towards a spiritual one. You will find that you desire more time to quite the mind and spend time contemplating the meaning of life. Many turn to meditation which helps them to turn inward. This process leads them to a greater understanding of who they are and what their life’s purpose is.
Taking time to notice what your body is telling you will help you to understand what Chakra center may need some extra attention. So go ahead and give yourself a wellness checkup and start yourself on the road to wellness today.
Following are a few suggestions to help with re-balancing the center to open it up to flow freely.
~ Use the color ORANGE to focus on or wear the color in clothing to stimulate an under-active Chakra
~ Use the color lavender or soft blue to focus on or wear the color in clothing to subdue an over-active Chakra
~ Drink lots of water as this is the Element associated with the Sacral
~ Eat orange fruit & vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, mango, oranges, melon, mandarins, cinnamon, chocolate and almonds
~ Use aromatherapy oils like cinnamon, geranium, sandalwood, jasmine, ylang ylang, tangerine, patchouli, vanilla, rose and sage
~ Nature walks, swimming or sitting by water, walking on the beach, gardening, meditation in nature, smell the flowers, walks in the moonlight
~ Listening to music or tones in the Key of D, drumming, toning/chanting “Vam” along with dancing energizes your Sacral center
~ You Tube videos with Tibetan Singing Bowl and Solfeggio Harmonics (Frequency: 288 Hz.) are great for balancing all the Chakras
