The Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra

Posted by Lindsey Russell on 25th Jan 2020

Sagittarius is ruled by the Sacral Chakra, which is represented by the color orange and the element of water. The Sacral Chakra is the second chakra from the base moving upward. It is located in the pubic region below the navel and rules the hips, thighs, reproductive organs, kidneys, bladder, uterus, prostate, adrenal glands, and genitals. The Sacral Chakra is related to emotions and independence as our adrenal glands control feelings of anxiety that can limit your decisions and emotions. It is responsible for our sexual and creative energy. When in alignment you will feel a creativity, passion, pleasure, joy, and a healthy sexual energy within you. This is our pleasure center and this energy allows us to feel pure enjoyment in our lives and our relationships. When your Sacral Chakra is blocked you will feel uninspired, experience menses issues, sexual dysfunction, lack of playful energy, lack of empathy, depleted self-worth, fear of change, low libido, urinary tract infections, hormonal imbalances, insecurity, resentfulness, control issues, withdrawn, tense, depression, and addiction-like behaviors. So what can we do to enhance the health of our Sacral Chakra and allow our energy to flow smoothly? Eating more fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin, oranges, carrots, coconut, papaya, mangos, walnuts and melons. 

Incorporating and working with crystals such as red and brown aventurine, red garnet, citrine, carnelian, red jasper also can help us attune our Sacral Chakra. Working with the mantra “I feel” can allow your subconscious to release the blockage around this center helping you feel comfortable expressing your creative and sexual nature. Since the Sacral Chakra is ruled by the element of water, spending time in water such as a lake, ocean, or even taking a bath can help restore balance along with the use of essential oils such as orange, tangerine, neroli, jasmine, rosewood, clary sage, grapefruit, and bergamot. Our Sacral Chakra bath bomb combines the effects of CBD and essential oils of bergamot and orange to provide the ultimate aid in helping unblock your Sacral Chakra. Pair this with the relaxing sounds of the ocean or rainfall and you have the perfect recipe to opening back up to your sexuality, self worth, and creative flow. Self-love and self-care is a great way to bring yourself back to your center, to your soul, to allow you to feel through what is holding you back in order to release it to move forward. December is a month jam-packed with holidays, family, and events. Allow yourself the time to slow down, relax, and unblock yourself this Holiday season so you can exude your highest self and presence during this wonderful time of connection and joy.
