The sacral chakra is associated with our emotional body - experiencing our lives through feelings and sensations.
The sacral chakra is located between the lower abdomen and the navel. Its color is orange. Is your sacral chakra out of balance? Too little energy in this chakra may cause rigidity in the body and mind. There can be a fear of change and a denial of pleasure - also poor social skills. You may have a general lack of desire, passion and excitement in life and you may lack interest in sex. When the energy is excessive, you could be addicted to pleasure and sex, and be ruled by excessive emotions, swinging wildly between moods, having endless crises. Emotionally you are over-sensitive and over-dependent on others.
How to heal the sacral chakra:
Learn to trust and enjoy your senses - listen to new music and sounds; look at nature and at art; taste different foods and drinks. Dance can help to liberate this chakra - so can bodywork. Gently try to get in touch with your emotions (with professional help if necessary) to release any old feelings of hurt, anger and guilt.
