Sacral Chakra: Guide to the Second Chakra

    The Sacral chakra is the second chakra. Located about two inches below the navel, in the lower back and abdomen it relates to our feelings, emotions and sexuality, polarity, sensuality, confidence and feeds our creativity, connecting us to others through our feelings and desires.

    The Sacral Chakra is characterised by putting your energy into a state of flow and hence is connected to the water element.


    The Sacral Chakra is where we experience pleasure and is associated with the following behavioural functions:

    • Emotions
    • Relationships
    • Sexuality/ Sensual Pleasure
    • Creativity
    • Fantasies

    The sacral chakra is associated with emotions and drives our passion, creativity and sensual desires. It’s responsible for the flow of emotions, hence the connection with the Water element.

    A balance in your Sacral Chakra helps you find passion and enjoyment in life, to experience pleasure and to fully immerse yourself in the world, to feel present.

    By feeling happier, the higher your vibrational energy resonates and the less chances of negativity or bad things happening.

    Balancing your Sacral Chakra can contribute to attracting what you want through the Law of Attraction. By raising your vibrational energy, you attract good things in life and continue the cycle of happiness.

    Characteristics of an imbalanced Sacral Chakra

    Without balance, the characteristics are often symbolised through negativity, unhappiness and lack of desire.

    Imbalance can lead to:

    • Dependency/ attachment on people or things for you to feel happy
    • Being emotionally driven in your decision making and daily actions
    • Sexual obsessions or lack of sexual desire
    • The feeling of stagnation, or being consumed in a certain mood, feeling victim of the world
