Shakti Mudra

Your Sacral Chakra is considered your second chakra. Its location lies approximately one hand width below your belly button. Due to its location, it's responsible for the reproductive system, colon, liver, and kidneys. The energy of the Sacral Chakra provides us with novel creative ideas, projects, and artistic endeavors. This information associated with the sacral chakra is important because it provides answers to behaviors that might make you feel out of balance. If you've ever felt emotionally unstable, fearful of change, or blocked creatively, your Sacral Chakra might be out of balance. Here are some examples of an unbalanced Sacral Chakra.

Underactive Sacral Chakra

  • Feeling unemotional

  • Feeling guarded

  • Not feeling excited about anything

  • Unable to focus

  • Out of touch with your creativity

  • Experiencing self-deprivation

  • Feeling detached

  • Feeling insecure

  • Low self-esteem

  • Sexual repression

  • Feeling jealous often

  • Comparing yourself to others

  • Acting shy or timid

  • Denying yourself of pleasure

  • Lack of passion or desire

Overactive Sacral Chakra

  • Having an excessive sex drive

  • Sexual addictions

  • Overindulgence

  • Lack of boundaries

  • Acting dramatic

  • Abnormal menstruation

  • Compulsive behaviors

  • Experiencing tension or moodiness

  • Feeling frustrated often

  • Hypersensitive Emotions

  • Pain in the lower back, kidneys, or constipation

  • Emotional dependency or codependency

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be experiencing some subconscious trauma associated with the sacral chakra. Often, sexual trauma from past relationships or even childhood is harnessed here in the sacral chakra. As children, sexual trauma may be repressed as a defense mechanism by the brain. Although repressed, your behaviors, cognition, and physiology are very aware and can cause extreme behaviors. Below are a few ways you can begin to heal your sacral chakra. Many of these are simply exercises, cognitive awareness is necessary to overcome any issue.

Nature: Work with plants
