Sacral Chakra. Why does it matter? - Alexandra Cook
The Sacral Chakra, or Svadhisthana is the second chakra. It is located 2 finger-widths above the Root chakra at the pelvis extending just below the navel. This chakra is the energy source of creativity, relationships and sexuality. It is associated with the color orange and the element of water symbolizing the flow of creativity and passion. As the home of desire and pleasure, opening the Svadhisthana can help us boost our creativity, manifest desire, confidence, and help us foster intimate relationships. The energy of the Sacral chakra helps us cultivate flexibility and adaptability in our emotional and social world, allowing us to move on, accept change, and transform. The Svadhisthana is the foundation of a healthy ego that allows us to interact with the world and be our authentic selves.
When the sacral chakra is blocked one may experience feelings of uncertainty, a lack of creative thought, fatigue, detachment from your emotions and those around you, or an inability to cope with life’s changes. When we bring this chakra into balance, we increase our ability to take risks and have the resiliency to recover when things go wrong. Through learning about the chakras and how we relate to them we learn about ourselves and our true nature. The Sacral chakra teaches us that every relationship we create – from the casual to the most intimate –serves a purpose to help us become more consciously aware of our karma and ourselves. Some relationships are necessarily difficult because it makes us learn about our own limitations and ourselves.
