The Sacral Chakra

The Sacral Chakra is located just below the belly button. This energy centre is associated with
joy, creativity, pleasure and worthiness

The keyword with this chakra is moderation. Learning to honour ourselves by listening to what we need in order to thrive - a combination of nutritious food, rest, fun, work and exercise. If we are too indulgent we burn up vital life energy. Indulgence in the form of life's "pleasures" such as food or sex. 

This chakra is also concerned with the quality of deservedness. When we truly feel we deserve the good we long for, we treat ourselves well and we give ourselves permission to have things we want. Self-sacrificing and martyrdom will close down this chakra. 

The Sacral Chakra is also associated with the emotional body and relates to a person's willingness to feel their emotions. If this chakra is blocked you may have a tendency to avoid your feelings through escapism and you may struggle with setting healthy boundaries. 

When your Sacral Chakra is functioning well you will be able to find the balance between control and letting go. You'll be able to have fun and enjoy life's pleasures without them taking over you, and you will have a strong sense of self-worth.
