Guide to Unlock the Power of your Sacral Chakra

 

The sacral chakra, or Svadhishthana, is located just above your pubic bone and below the navel. Once your root chakra foundation is healthy (more on your root chakra), creativity can blossom in the sacral chakra.

The sacral chakra governs and influences your creativity, self-expression, sensuality, emotions, and connection. When your sacral chakra is in balance, you radiate warmth, generosity, and curiosity. When out of balance, feelings of emotional instability, co-dependency, lack of definite boundaries, and overindulgences can result.   

The mantra for the root chakra is "I feel." Are you taking care of yourself first, above everything else? When there is little focus on self-care when there is a tendency to take care of everyone and everything else first and ourselves last, the more out of balance your sacral chakra is likely to be.

The physicality of your sacral chakra out of balance looks like lower back discomfort, stomach troubles, reproductive issues, and addictive/compulsive behaviors. 

 

Crystals to Support the Sacral Chakra

The color associated with the sacral chakra is orange. If you would like to utilize crystals to provide support, reach for aventurine, amber, carnelian, or orange calcite. 

 

Affirmations of Support

Affirmations are positive statements that can be said quietly or out loud to challenge or work to overcome self-limiting beliefs or struggle. Here are a few examples of affirmations for the sacral chakra:

 

-I seek opportunities for spiritual and personal growth.

 

-I allow my creativity to flow through me freely. 

 

-I value and respect my body exactly as it is today.

 

Essential Oils for the Sacral Chakra

 

Rosemary: Rosemary essential oil may be the first oil that we think of to boost memory and increase focus, but it is also beneficial for the sacral chakra. Inhaling the crisp medicinal aroma of Rosemary helps to ground you and bring you back to center and can assist with any aches and pains in the back, central to the sacral chakra.

 

Peppermint: The minty and fresh aroma of Peppermint essential oil helps you to be alert, enlivened, and creative, keeping the sacral chakra clear and balanced. When you are looking to boost your confidence and find compassion for yourself and others, reach for your bottle of Peppermint essential oil.

 

Frankincense-The green, woody aroma of Frankincense is a superior oil for grounding and centering. Inhaling its aroma can assist in your feeling content and at home in your own body. Frankincense essential oil is an ideal choice for meditation or other forms of energy work paired with other grounding oils such as Vetiver, Sandalwood, or Patchouli.

 

 

Self-Care Tips

 

If you feel blocked in the area of creativity, are not feeling connected to your emotions, or on the flip side feel everything intensely and are dealing with situational anxiety, try and incorporate a few of these practices into your life. 

 

-Find ways to embrace your inner child, letting creativity flow. Paint with your fingers, spend more time around little children, allow more time for genuine play. Even daydreaming opens the door to more creativity (Inc., 2018).

 

-If you have not utilized a journal before, I invite you to try it and see if you like it. I write all of my feelings in a journal but have a particular practice of writing things I am grateful for, beautiful memories I hold dear, and incredible detail of my thoughts when creative inspiration hits. The action of being grateful brings immense feelings of contentment and abundance. Give it a try!

 

-If you own a bathtub, I recommend utilizing aromatic oils in the tub. Mix five drops of sweet orange and two drops of patchouli in a little bit of fragrance-free bubble bath or shampoo and treat yourself today. 

 

These tools and practices will help keep your sacral chakra in balance, leaving you feeling confident and calm throughout your day.
