SACRAL - Cultivate Creativity
Located: Below the Navel
Yoga Poses: Goddess pose & Pigeon pose
The original name of our Sacral chakra is Svadhisthana, meaning “place of self”. This chakra is our second chakra. Located above the pubic bone, our Sacral chakra is connected to our creativity and sexuality. In our day to day lives, we are always creating. Whether we are creating our own reality or creating something physical, creation is in our subconscious body. The Sacral chakra governs our divine feminine energy as well, giving the power to express ourselves creatively and pay tribute to our physical body without feeling shameful. Our Sacral provides us feelings of pleasure, joy, creativity, healthy sexuality, fertility, and patience.
It is easy to lose touch with our creative side when we are in constant “go” mode and letting the societal opinions get to us, causing blockages in our Sacral chakra. When our Sacral is thrown off balance, we will start to feel emotionally unstable, fear (especially from change and intimacy), sexual issues, guilt, lack of creativity, allergies, low back pain, kidney troubles, shyness, and irresponsibility.
To bring balance back into our Sacral, we must do things to make us feel creative, confident and generous. Holistic ways to balance your Sacral chakra include incorporating essential oils into our daily routine, like our Sacral Chakra Aromatherapy blend which consists of natural Sandalwood, Cardamom and Cinnamon Essential oils. Using crystals in our meditative state or wearing them on our physical body will also help balance your chakras. Red Agate, Sunstone, Citrine, and Amber are very powerful tools for our Sacral chakra as well.
