Working on the Sacral Chakra for Physical Well Being:


The Sacral Chakra is about friendliness, creativity, sexuality, emotions and intuition on the gut level. It’s influenced by how emotions were expressed or repressed during childhood. It is the sexual centre for women. Parts of the body controlled by the lumbar plexus are the reproductive system, abdomen, and the lumbar region. Symptoms of this chakra spinning too fast are, being emotionally unbalanced, manipulative, and sexually addictive. Symptoms of it spinning too slowly are over sensitivity, feels guilty for no reason, and frigidity or impotence. If it is balanced one will feel, expressive, creative, and trusting.  When it is in balance we are fully able to express and feel our emotions.
An imbalance will first resonate as a tingle, ache or sensitivity in the sacral region.  It can cause feelings of possessiveness, jealousy, envy, and self-regret on all levels. It can make you feel guilt and shame; your sense of humour may be lacking.
On a physical level, an imbalance in the sacral chakra can lead to sexual dysfunction, impotence, frigidity, or promiscuity; in women: fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, menstrual dysfunction, ovarian cysts or cancer; in men: prostate problems inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis; appendicitis; chronic low back pain or sciatica; bladder problems or urinary problems. Our sacral chakras can become unbalanced when we are overly concerned with appearances or how others perceive us.
Information Stored in this Chakra relates to first impressions, old emotional pictures, ancestral “baggage and controlling patterns.
To restore Balance to an Overworked Chakra use purple colour (use purple clothes, or use purple gemstones, eat purple foods, etc.) as Purple is orange’s “complementary colour”.
Use music to help you stay connected with yourself and your sacral chakra. Use your hips while dancing to music that has passionate rhythm. Experience your feelings as they come instead of burying emotions and dwelling in the past. Burn or smell essential oils, such as sandalwood, jasmine, orange blossom or sage, to help you.
Yoga poses that open the hips and groin area, such as bound angle, pigeon and squatting pose Gomukhasana (Cow Face Pose) Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (Pigeon Pose), Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose), Upavistha Konasana (Open Angle Pose), and other hip and groin openers will stimulate the sacral chakra.
