The sacral chakra should be understood as the balance of the demand and supply between the left and right hips and the Earth and sky. This balance is crucial for stabilizing energy throughout the whole system.


If you feel like you’ve lost your creative mojo, or perhaps have trouble expressing yourself, your sacral chakra might need some healing. But first, in case you need a little chakra refresher: "There are seven different major energy centers throughout the body, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head through which this energy can flow in and out in a constant stream," says nutritionist and Reiki Master Serena Poon. "These energy centers are called chakras, Sanskrit for 'wheel,' and are essentially the link between our energetic and physical bodies and the universal life force energy that connects us environmentally and spiritually.

The sacral chakra, also knowns as the second chakra, is located two inches below your belly button and is represented by the color orange. "This chakra governs your emotions, your creativity, sensitivity, sexuality, intimacy, emotional well-being, and self-expression," Poon says. Each chakra, she adds, also vibrates at a particular frequency that impacts certain parts of the body. For the sacral, it’s the lymphatic and circulatory systems, reproductive organs, bladder, kidney, and large intestines. (Source: www.wellandgood.com)

So, really, what does it mean to heal your sacral chakra? Poon explains that it’s about clearing and cleansing that energy center and bringing it back into a state of balance. There are many things you can do to heal your chakras. There’s talking to them, for example, as well as wearing chakra-balancing jewelry, and if you want to get really woo-woo, you can even try rainbow crystal light therapy. Below, Poon shares some specific sacral chakra healing practices, plus symptoms to help you determine whether your sacral needs some healing. (Source: www.wellandgood.com)

The sacral chakra is connected to the element of water so nourishing your body, inside and out, with some H20 will do your sacral some good. Poon recommends keeping your body hydrated by drinking lots of it. You can even make it fancy and more sacral chakra-friendly by adding a couple of slices of orange. Taking a warm bath complete with orange essential oils or going swimming in a natural body of water will also help get your sacral buzzing again. The first step towards healing your sacral chakra is to simply acknowledge that your physical and energetic body needs support. “Support can come in the form of healing through reiki from a practitioner (or even yourself), or through other methods of energy healing,” Poon says.
