Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra is located just below the navel in the lower belly. This is your 2nd chakra and is also called the spleen chakra. The ancient Sanskrit word for this chakra is Swadhisthana Chakra, and it means “Sacred home of the self.”

This chakra holds the energy of creativity, procreation, sex, morality, and control. Your dreams fantasies and emotions are also governed by this chakra.

Through this chakra you get your sense of freedom and being open to change. It allows flexibility and flow in your life.

In Balance
When this chakra is in balance you flourish with the qualities of sensitivity and intuition. You are idealistic and a dreamer. You also do well with change and are able to go with the flow of life. You have a strong sense of self and what you want and find creative ways to get it.

All creative ideas and impulses originate from your Sacral Chakra.

Out of Balance
You may have a tendency toward being over-emotional or very theatrical. Keeping yourself grounded may be difficult and you can get overly caught up in day dreams. Your creativity may become blocked and dealing with change can be difficult.

Frustration can build and turn into aggressive behavior. You could have feeling of being unsettled and stuck, feeling as if you have no choice.

The Water Element
The Sacral Chakra represents liquid. There is a connection between the planet and your body; both are made up of a significant amount of water.

Meditating with the water element in mind will help you tap into the flow of this chakra’s energy. You will also become more attuned with the flow of life. Energize your meditation space with a beautiful bowl filled with water. Anything related to water will do, sea shells, coral, even a picture of fish swimming in the ocean.

Taking a relaxing shower or bath before meditating will help bring the sense and essence of the water element into your awareness. Feel the water as it flows over your body becoming one with it.

Use your imagination and visualize a gentle flowing stream. Try to feel the fluidity of your body. Imagine you are floating downstream without a care in the world.


    “I follow the flow of my natural abilities.”

    “I float downstream with all life situations that come my way.”

    “I change and adapt easily to whatever comes my way.”

    “I follow my dreams and trust my decisions.”

    “I let go of old negative feelings and open to new ways of thinking.”

    “I welcome new ideas and go with the flow.”

Keep in mind these words of wisdom, “Go with the flow,” and let your spirit guide you.
