The 2nd Chakra - Sacral Chakra
The Second Chakra – the Sacral Chakra is in the sacrum and is characterised by the colour orange.
This chakra is the centre of self-esteem, frustration, sexuality and sensuality and often linked with life lessons involving blame, guilt, sex, power and control. It is the baseline for your morality. It is where emotional turmoil and addictions have their roots and our beliefs about money.
The first and second chakra are intricately woven together. With the first chakra encompassing energy from the group you grow up and live within, whilst the second is your own place and sense of self within the group.
The second chakra is also our pleasure centre and linked to our need to control. It holds our creative energy, our financial energy, our sexual energy, the control of others and any loss of a child or abortion energy.
Some psychological symptoms of imbalance or blockage of the sacral chakra include: Jealousy, additions, dependency issues, eating disorders, emotional imbalances, low self-confidence and low libido.
Some physical symptoms include: Chronic lower back pain, Dysfunctional menstrual cycles, infertility, kidney and intestinal issues, sexual disorders.
Healing the sacral chakra is again very personal to everyone. Some suggestions include: balancing your other chakras, be creative like a child, dance, play, tone up, let go of negative thoughts and emotions, work through the steps of grief when you lose someone or a pet, come to terms with the loss of a child or abortion.
