THE SACRAL (2ND) CHAKRA: PASSION

May 11, 2018

Never apologize for showing feeling.  When you do so, you apologize for the truth.     ~ Benjamin Disraeli

The 2nd or SACRAL CHAKRA is not just an ancient symbol, it plays an important role in our everyday life. In our modern world this Chakra manifests as the intention for PASSION - "The rush as you loose yourself in the moment".

SACRAL CHAKRA is considered to be the center of emotion and creativity. This energy center affects our ability to enjoy life in physical ways and governs our general well being.

Associated with sexual functions and creative potential of a human, it connects us to others through feelings, desire, sensations, and movement.

It is dominant from ages 7 to 14. The hormone functions as well as understanding about the sexes awaken, and the 1st crush happens. We establish relationships outside of parental love and forge friendships outside of the family.

The function of SACRAL CHAKRA depends on how well we take care of ourselves. It is associated with water, and water is energetically equated with the emotions. Our body is mostly comprised of water, so keeping it hydrated, as well as nourished and rested, maintains a balanced 2nd chakra, helping us to effortlessly “go with the flow”, making our creative juices flowing, and allowing to experience joy, harmony, and positive relationships.

A healthy SACRAL CHAKRA allows us to be spontaneous and playful, feel strong emotions without being overpowered by them. It results in flexibility, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment, and the ability to accept change.

Well-being, pleasure, intimacy, sensuality, abundance in all forms – all these qualities are present when the 2nd CHAKRA is balanced. Add to it creativity, sociability, patience, joie de vivre, and you will understand how important this Chakra is in our lives.

Unbalanced 2nd CHAKRA, on the other hand, results in under- or hyper-sexuality. It creates intimacy issues, frequent feeling of guilt, envy, frustration, and anxiety. We suffer from low self-value, broken relationships with partners and friends, and rarely feel joy. Cravings, addictions and self-destructive behavior in general, are all challenges associated with of unhealthy 2nd CHAKRA as well.

When you are working on the SACRAL CHAKRA, it is helpful to ask yourself questions to better understand how yours is doing:

  • Do I feel attractive?
  • Have I lost an ability to feel joy?
  • Am I frequently overly emotional?
  • Do I have hard time with change?

To heal and balance Chakras, it helps to use affirmations, or mantras. You might want to use them during meditation, or just repeat throughout your day.

By understanding your energy body, of which Chakras are a major part, you can find out a lot about yourself, and successfully navigate your life understanding others as well. Happy learning!
