Chakra Series Part 2: Svadhisthana

Hello, beauties!

For the second installment of our seven-part chakra series, we’ll be looking at the sacral chakra.

Developing an understanding of - and learning how to open - the chakras will better one’s mind, body, and soul. As an avid supporter and practitioner of chakra balancing, I can attest to their ability to connect with many of the ailments that experience.

Whether manifesting through disease, emotional unrest, or spiritual troubles, an unbalanced chakra can cause a massive fissure within us. By taking a deeper dive into the inner-workings of chakras, you may be able to fully understand their impact on your life, as well as gain an understanding of how you can remove potential blockages. 

The Second Chakra

Known as the sacral chakra, the second chakra is called Svadhisthana in Sanskrit. It is responsible for personal identity, sexuality, and creativity. The sacral chakra stretches from your belly button to the center of your abdomen. It is represented by the color orange and the element of water.

As this article so beautifully put it,

“In working with this chakra, you will address your relationship with both others and yourself. Personally, you’ll discover you have nearly unlimited creative power; you’ll learn how to cultivate a healthy relationship to pleasure, and you’ll gain insight into your default reactions and deepest emotions. With others, you’ll learn how to express yourself more skillfully and how to begin setting healthy boundaries.”

The sacral chakra, due to its placement and energy is most often associated with the hips, sacrum, pelvis, colon, bodily fluids, reproductive organs, bladder, and kidneys. As such, imbalances with this chakra may take the form of lower energy levels, fertility issues, circulatory problems, guilt, shame, jealousy, kidney health problems, and urinary impediments. 

Unblocking the Sacral Chakra

As the chakra is connected with your creative centers, it may help to dance like no one is watching, paint in free-flow, give creative writing a try, or whatever means of creative expressions best suit you. 

Additionally, enhancing your connection to water may help to improve imbalances in the sacral chakra. Some suggestions would be to listen to the sound of waves, go for a swim, soak in your tub, or simply enjoy a cleansing rain. If you’re already familiar with crystals/stones, you may consider working with clear quartz, rose quartz, carnelian, chrysocolla, moonstone, and dark opal. 

Opening your sacral chakra allows you to develop a deeper connection to, or feeling for, the world around you, as well as within yourself.

Next Steps

In tomorrow’s article, I’ll cover the next chakra you’ll want to familiarize yourself with: the Solar Plexus chakra. Expect to see all seven of the chakras covered in the coming days - and remember to follow along with our Instagram series which incorporates yoga into a greater understanding of our bodies, chakras, and overall balance.

Love,

“You can’t outrun your fork” is an adage that we repeat time and again to remind ourselves about the importance of sticking with a healthy diet. Our health, in many ways, begins and ends in the kitchen. If we’re putting healthy fule into our bodies, we’re going to run like a well oiled machine - and the inverse is true, as well. When we put too much junk in our system, our health suffers.
