Have you felt lately like you were no longer able to express yourself or to be creative? If that is the case in your life, chances are that your sacral chakra might need some work. The chakras are seven different wheels of energy that run through your main body. There are many other chakras outside of the body as well. The chakras are there to give you energy and to keep your life force healthy and strong. This works with your physical, spiritual, and emotional body.
The sacral chakra is the second chakra in your body, and it is located below the navel. This is represented by the color orange and it is the place in your body where your creative juices flow and where your sexuality and your intimacy are. You can use this chakra to help you express yourself.
The body parts associated with this chakra include the circulatory system, reproductive organs, intestines, kidneys, lymphatic system, and the bladder.
Healing your chakra is important and what that means is that you cleanse the energy that is not balanced in your body. Your chakras can become unbalanced based on bad things that have happened to you, negative thinking or talking or even sickness. You can do different things to heal your chakras such as meditating, wearing crystals, light therapy and more.
What Happens when the Sacral Chakra is Blocked?
There are things that will happen to you when your sacral chakra is blocked. You might become fearful or even depressed. Maybe your emotions are out of control lately or you lack the creativity or sex drive that you had before. You might even turn to addiction.
Other symptoms can include hip pain, back pain, sciatica pain, kidney, or urinary problems and maybe even constipation. When your chakras are balanced though, you will have joy, peace, health, and wellness.
Healing the Sacral Chakra
The first thing that you need to do if your sacral chakra is blocked is to know that you need help getting this cleared. You can get help by talking to someone or by doing Reiki.
Water is the element of the sacral chakra and water can cleanse the body both on the inside and the outside. Drink enough water to keep your body hydrated and then you can even do things like take a salt bath. Add Epsom salt to your bath and watch the negativity wash away.
Eating Good Foods
Find foods that are orange to eat such as pumpkin, oranges, citrus fruits, butternut squash and more. Add these foods to your grocery list.
Take time to create something. Since the sacral chakra is all about creativity, take time to tap into this energy. Even if you feel that you are not creative that day, do something like cooking or gardening to show off your skills.
Challenge yourself to do something new and to learn something new in your life. If you need to be inspired, call a friend that does different things and find out what they are doing that is new and creative.
Since the sacral chakra is found in the stomach area, do poses that open this area up. Dance or stretch and do whatever it takes to move your hips.
You can do different yoga poses such as the goddess pose, the butterfly pose or other poses such as the cobra pose. Move your legs around in circles, bend your knees, do some squats, and let your sacral chakra be strong.
You can use mantras that support healing for the sacral chakra. Do some chanting while you are doing poses or taking a bath.
Find some healing crystals that are orange in color such as the aventurine, hematite, or the carnelian. Use these under your pillow, in your pocket or keep them close to yourself while you are meditating. You can even hold them to have deeper meditation.
