Sacral Chakra – Swadhisthana

The Sacral Chakra, also known as the Swadhisthana Chakra, located in the pelvic area.

The second chakra is the centre of emotion, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy, and connection.

The energy of this chakra allows you to let go, to move, and to feel change and transformation occurring within your body. It allows you to experience this moment as it is, in its own fullness.

It controls creativity, intuition, sexuality and self-worth.

This chakra controls creativity and emotions. It controls the confidence you have or don’t have.

If the second chakra is troubled, a person may feel emotionally weak.  They will not be able to trust people and or be friendly. The chakra controls creativity and confidence. It also influences how a person opens up to others and responds to their feelings. It makes a person empathetic.

The women sexual organs are exactly located in this chakra. This is exactly why if a woman has any problems with sexuality, it can be associated with the dysfunction of this chakra. A man can get over obsessed with sex if this second chakra is not in order. The chakra, if blocked, can make a person short tempered and even physically violent.

If your sacral chakra is out of balance the physical symptoms, can include:

  • premenstrual syndrome
  • anaemia
  • hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar)
  • lower back pain
  • joint problems
  • spleen and kidney issues
  • low energy

On a non-physical level, an imbalance of the sacral chakra can contribute to:

  • depression
  • poor boundaries
  • overly sensitive, indulgent or aggressive
  • fear and/or anxiety
  • detachment
  • co-dependency
  • manipulation
  • panic attacks

If you feel your second chakra is in need of opening and healing, there are a number of things you can do to balance and strengthen it.


  • Dancing
  • Drawing
  • Colouring in
  • Painting

The Sacral Chakra & Crystals:

The sacral chakra resonates to the colour of orange, and many stones in this group are easily obtained.  They are; Carnelian, Amber, orange agate, sunstone

Chakra stones can be used in a variety of ways.

One of the easiest and most common is to wear them as jewellery.  Carrying a healing stone in your pocket works as well.

Chakra stones are also useful during meditation.  Hold the stones in the palms of your hands or if laying down, place just below the navel area.

Again when meditating, picture orange environment.  The sky, land and water to be orange and picture yourself standing under an orange waterfall if you feel you need to work on balancing this chakra.

I am naturally drawn to orange and purple combined.  My bedroom is oranges and purples as my creativity and intuition is drawn highly from these centres.

I know when I’m out of balance when I’m feeling isolated or isolate myself from those around me – even family.  I just shut down.
