Not so while ago, we talked about the root chakra. This article continues the series.

Swadhisthana, the sacral chakra or is the second of the seven chakras. It is situated in the lower abdomen, about 1-2 cm below the navel. When the chakra is open, it allows us to express our emotions without being overly emotional or overactive. It also deals with feelings of s*xuality; if balanced, you will have no issues dealing with s*xuality.  When the sacral chakra is balanced, the emotions are kept in balance, and you become more passionate and livelier.

The sacral chakra is in the lower abdomen, and it controls your reproductive system (ovaries or testes), s*xual organs, the bladder, and the kidneys.

Functions of the Sacral Chakra

1. Physical health

The sacral chakra mainly deals with purification, thanks to it, we can remove the toxins in our body. The energy of the sacral chakra is responsible for the proper functioning of the reproductive system, its organs and hormones, the urinary tract, and the administration of the lymphatic and circulatory system. In some teachings, the sacral chakra is represented by uterus in women and the spleen in men.

It’s essential to keep this chakra in balance to maintain good physical health because an imbalance can lead to many issues such as kidney stones, urinary problems, gynecological problems, and prostate problems and lower back pain. It is essential to keep this chakra in balance to stay away from such issues.

2. Emotional health

The second chakra is thought to be the ‘seat of emotions’ because it is the ‘home’ of joy, self-love and acceptance, creativity, ambition, and healthy relationships. You are more comfortable with talking about your emotions, and you do not get overpowered by others. Having an imbalanced sacral chakra means that you are likely to become shy, weak, and helpless.

We already said that this chakra is related to the reproductive system, so it deals with the stimulation of the production of hormones that develop pleasure, joy, and other emotions as well as the production of various s*x hormones.

Your chakra is in balance when you are comfortable with having a s*xual relationship with someone because the s*xual energy and s*x drive are well balanced. If balanced, you haven’t got negative emotions while having s*x, and it’s done for a fair exchange. You can express your power smoothly, and the s*x is not weighted on one side only. With a proper balanced sacral chakra, there is no neediness, no feeling clingy, and therefore no jealousy.

The sacral chakra is blocked when you try to avoid having s*xand do not have any s*xualdesires, hence reducing its importance in your life. S*xual sensations are often weak and disappointing.

3. Honor and power

When this chakra is balanced, you give and receive love naturally. This chakra relates to ‘fair exchange’ or having similar ideas with others.  People with a balanced sacral chakra flirt playfully with no guilt or shame, in a beautiful and natural “dance.” They aren’t afraid of expanding their boundaries, affection, talking about their needs, and are comfortable listening and attending to other people’s needs.

You can cause harm and block the sacral chakra when you’re expressing too much power, engage in means of taking revenge, and pressure someone with your s*xual desires.

Healing the Sacral Chakra with Reiki

Reiki practitioners usually use their own technique for balancing the sacral chakra, and here’s one method that has proven effective.

The Reiki practitioner will either place or hover their hands by the client’s sacrum. Some practitioners work on this chakra by rotating to the left for males and right for females. I always do what feels right for me. But, if you’re not sure, send energy to the area, it will do the right thing. This can be done on the front regarding the present and future or the back regarding the past of the person. This not only unblocks the chakra but will also help with prostate and reproductive problems.

This chakra has the ‘VAM’ sound, and some practitioners will associate the blockage with mantras. Aromatherapy can be used in addition to the mantra, such as the usage of sandalwood or ylang-ylang oil. Carnelian and moonstones are useful to work with during the balancing process.

The aura of this chakra will glow bright and clear orange when the Reiki healing is finished. When the chakra is cleared, many people often tend to sleep in a fetal position for more than eight hours. You may also envision clear water and moonlight during the process of healing this chakra with Reiki.

The chakra opens to universal energies, and you will feel the freedom of talking about your emotions without any discomfort or displeasure. Once it is unblocked, you will not only heal your physical self, the reproductive system, and other organs, but you will also clear your emotional and s*xual blockages.
