There is a current trend and it has to do with awakening your inner Goddess.

What most people don’t realize is, much of the work to embody your goddess lies in unleashing the Power of Your Sacral Chakra. Unlock the Power of your Sacral Chakra and watch your Inner Goddess blossom!

First, here is a list of the Basic associations to the Sacral Energy Center:

Sanskrit name: Svadhisthana

Color: Orange

Location: Sacral Region … Behind the genitals/reproductive organs

Element: Water

Seed Mantra: Vam

Organs & Gland: Bladder, Kidneys and Reproductive Organs, Gonads

Psychological Function: Creativity, Desires, Sexuality, Self Worth

About the Sacral Energy Center:

The Sacral Chakra, known in sanskrit as the Svadhishthana Chakra is the 2nd in the chain of our 7 main energy centers. Right above your Root Chakra, your Sacral Chakra can be found in the sacral region (sacrum) of the spine (below the lumbar spine and above the tailbone).

Your life force energy (Kundalini Shakti) rests at your Root Chakra.

When this kundalini energy flows freely upward through the seven chakras it leads to expanded states of consciousness. At the sacral chakra, the expanded consciousness is expressed as creativity.

When this chakra is aligned with the upward flow of energy, you find that creativity flows, ideas come easily, and you feel alive and bright.

From the procreation of a new life, to art, choreography and writing,

to starting a new business, cooking and coming up with new ideas, creative flow is expressed in many ways and flows abundantly when our Svadhisthana is open & balanced.

In Sanskrit Svadhisthana means “where you are established” or “dwelling place of the Self”.

sva means self … and the root word, svad translates as “to taste with pleasure” or “enjoy."

adhisthana means “established”.

Think about it … this sacral chakra region is where procreation occurs.

The dwelling is the womb and it is the place where your soul grows into your physical body … establishing your “self”.

This energy of tasting with pleasure encourages you to explore your sensuality, sexuality and desires. And the act of exploration with the natural flow of energy creates an expansion of creative flow.

Isn’t this Fun?

I mean think about it.

If we allow ourselves to enjoy exploring, it actually expands in a positive direction to inspire creativity, innovation and the ability to think out of the box and problem solve.

Motivated by pleasure, the Svadhisthana Chakra is the center for passion and awakens the power of creation. This allows us to practice the power of choice and the expression of our emotional needs and desires, resulting in emotional well-being. Coupled with the fact that the Svadhisthana plays an active role in our sensuality & sexuality, this wonderful chakra assists us in creating intimate relationships.

It makes total sense that the element for the Svadhisthana is water,

which represents flow and flexibility. This energy ~ flow like water, helps us let go, accept change and transformation much more easily.

When our Sacral Chakra is in balance, our emotions flow through us without judgments that create blockages.

Seeing our emotions without judgment enhances our ability to understand even more deeply and to express our desires even more clearly.

This puts us in a place of compassion for ourselves and others and helps us experience positivity, while restoring balance and harmony.

The sacral chakra is associated with the color orange and is considered to induce creativity and stimulate pleasure.

So when you’re not feelin’ the creative flow, or maybe your sexual energy is off balance, as in lustful or low libido … your second chakra is unbalanced.

This can cause emotional disturbances, irritability, blocked creativity, and unhealthy obsession with sexual thoughts and actions.

Get yourself into a playful mood … whatever that means to you. It could be playing a certain song, or talking to a buddy who always makes you laugh,

or just letting go and dancing. Adding this playful mood to your creative endeavors adds fuel to your creative flow. Adding music to your creative endeavors brings a special energy to your mood as well … so have some of your favorite songs available for your creative flow moments.

  • Low Libido

  • Lack of Creativity

  • Fatigue

  • Fear of Pleasure

  • Lack of Desire

  • Detachment

  • Insecurity

When the natural flowing nature of the Sacral is blocked all the beautiful qualities of this energy center can turn on you ;-(

Rather than flowing through life like water, a blocked Sacral can make you feel stuck, bored, uninspired or uncreative.

All this results in an inability to cope with life’s changes.

An under-active Sacral Chakra can affect the complete physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. So, if you’re going and growing through lots of life changes - you definitely want to make sure you’re nurturing your Swadisthana Chakra.

Signs of an Overactive Sacral Chakra

If your Sacral Chakra is overactive that means you have too much energy! Since Sacral governs emotions, overactive energy can create feelings of being overwhelmed. Experiencing emotions more deeply and extreme mood swings can indicate an overactive Sacral.

Drug, Sex or Porn addiction indicates an Overactive Sacral Chakra.

The addictive behavior can root from being dissatisfied with life, especially when a person is trying to fulfill herself /himself with external things.

In summary …

Getting your energy flowing, pumping up your inspiration and re-igniting your creativity is an ongoing practice … and it’s 100% worth it!

Who wouldn’t want to experience life with passion, play and inspiration?

This is your inner Goddess coming out to express itself to the fullest.

The Sacral Energy is a fun, sensuous and playful energy!

By allowing yourself to be sensuous and have pleasure in your life you’re igniting your resourcefulness, your flow and your creative sacral energy.

It’s a no brainer!

A Win Win!

Ask yourself,

What areas of your life would benefit from an increase in creative flow?

And simply put energy in that direction. Use one of the above tools to ignite your energy flow and then consciously point it in the direction of where you want to be more creative - or solution oriented.



And once you’ve learned to energize a few things in your life -

it’s easy to copy and paste in all different areas of your life.

Again, this is a practice.

As you practice the Sacral tools,

the qualities of your Sacral Chakra shine through you more and more.

EnJOY the process!
