The second main chakra: Love and honour your life and body
Our Sacral chakra is located in our navel area and its characteristics are an orange energy, creative, nurturing, sexuality, abundance and an overall wellbeing. This chakra rules our reproductive organs and adrenal glands. It is also associated with our sense of taste and is of the element, water. The key issues that affect our sacral chakra are:
enjoyment and pleasure
Creativity and enthusiasm for life happens with a balanced sacral chakra. We feel joy in our relationships with family and friends, and are able to enjoy pleasure with our intimate partner.
When this chakra is balanced - meaning the vital life force energy (prana) can move through our Sacral chakra - we are able to relate to others in healthy relationships that are continually nurtured. We are enabled to have healthy sexual relationships guilt free and are respectful to ourselves. We know who we are, we are worthy and we have enough food, rest and money. We do not relate our self worth to how much material things we have or our social status. We love and respect ourselves by creating healthy boundaries.
When this chakra is unbalanced, we see it in ways such as:
sexual addictions, over-indulgence
mood swings, i.e., hysteria, frustration, depression
seductive manipulations and guilt, shame, martyr complex
fear of intimacy and co-dependence issues
