There are seven energy centres in our bodies, each own responsible for a different area of our spiritual and physical self and promoting well-being. Svadhisthana or the Sacral Chakra is the 2nd energy centre located just beneath the navel in the centre of the belly.
This chakra is associated with our emotional balance, creative energy, passion and sexuality. Most Sacral Chakra healing stones have a bright orange hue. They are linked to the female reproductive organs, in both men and women and emit a raw and powerful feminine energy.
To maintain the energy flow between your chakras, it is important to keep them balanced and prevent blockages that can amplify negative vibrations. Healing stones and crystals are one of the best ways to prevent Chakra blockages and attain a balanced emotional state.
Here are some of the best healing crystals to use for your Sacral Chakra.
At Tali & Loz we are true believers of the Chakras and we curated crystal sets which we believe help to guide specific energy through the Chakras. Our ‘Detox Chakra set’, will introduce crystal vibrations that will help you with detoxing and protect you from negative energy around you. Check out our full range here.
Why work on your Sacral Chakra?
A closed Sacral Chakra can make it harder to appreciate the opportunities present in your life and make you feel detached from your emotions and the people around you.
Your second energy centre is located between your Root Chakra and the Solar Plexus Chakra and is a bridge between the base chakra and your spiritual self. Try to choose crystals that combine orange, red, and yellow tones that can be used to work on more than one Chakra simultaneously and will have a beneficial effect on all of them.
Working on your Sacral Chakra allows you to harness your creativity and be in tune with your emotions so that you are able to overcome obstacles with ease. As the centre for joy, passion, sensuality and passion, working on your Sacral Chakra will bring you closer to your sexual desires and allow you to explore them confidently with a partner or just yourself.
With its strong connection to the reproductive organs, the Sacral Chakra allows us to birth new ideas, explore new directions in life and be confident in our life's journey.
What does a blocked Sacral Chakra feel like?
Emotional difficulties especially when it comes to relationships and approaching tricky situations are often the result of a blockage in your Sacral Chakra. To improve the energy flow to this area, you can incorporate meditation, Reiki or wear orange stones in your body near the navel.
Imbalances can manifest in both spectrums and lead to emotional outbursts or an apathetic and disconnected attitude. You may feel isolated from loved ones, or try to retain a sense of controlling by lashing out and exhibiting controlling behaviours. If your emotional state shifts suddenly with no warning and you are in constant need of reassurance, working on your Sacral Chakra is highly recommended.
Some common physical and emotional symptoms with a blocked Sacral Chakra:
- Low libido
- Lack of purpose
- Cannot find pleasure in life
- Toxic relationships
- No creative energy
- Lack of confidence
