The Sacral Chakra is the 2nd of the seven main chakras. Svadhisthana, the Sanskrit name for the chakra means “One’s Own Place” and is representative of our emotional body, encompassing our sexuality and creativity. The main focus of this chakra is “Emotions and Intimacy” and it governs our connection to our partners and the creative force in our lives present through the act of creating another life as well as the creative expression found in passions such as making music, art, food, and other forms of expression. A healthy, open Sacral Chakra leads to a sense of joy, sensuality, creativity, fertility, and ability to indulge in pleasure. When the Sacral Chakra is out of balance a person may experience issues around sexuality and fertility, fear and insecurity, jealousy, disorders of the sexual organs, rigidity, and a lack of inspiration or creative expression. 

Ways to help keep the Sacral Chakra balanced:

  • Orange is the color associated with the Sacral Chakra, visualizing this color in the area above the pubic bone and below the navel, wearing orange and eating orange colored foods can all contribute to a healthy Sacral Chakra.
