Represented by the element of water, this chakra is the source of creativity, inspiration, pleasure, sense of well being, sense of abundance and the foundation of our emotional body. It influences our ability to feel emotions and controls our ability to release our emotions. Also considered the relationship chakra, it represents our ability to relate to other people. The challenge of the Sacral chakra to interact “consciously” with others and to allow the creative flow of Life to guide and shape our experience.
Positive (strengths) of Sacral Chakra: Balance of independence and dependence, deeply connected relationships, empowering choices, imagination, creativity, feel healthy, friendly, focus on our objectives, empathy, tolerance, patience, intuition, energy, success, secure, nurturing of self as well as others.
Unbalanced Sacral Chakra: feeling unworthy, unloved, guilt, shame, easily overwhelmed, overly sensitive, shy, immobilized by fear, excess food, sex, additions, impotence, frigid, self centered, overly ambitious, untrusting, confused, aimless, lack of intimate relationships, isolated, clingy, manipulative, being controlled by others, fears of losing control, caught up in illusions.
Healing the Sacral Chakra
Affirmations: start by writing down the ones you feel called to do. Place this paper where you can see your affirmations often and repeat in your mind and out loud. Here are some sample affirmations I found for healing this chakra:
- I know that life always supports me and takes care of me
- I welcome the comfort of others in times of need
- I am lovable and I am loved
- I welcome intimacy as one of life’s greatest pleasures
- Comforting another human being is one of the kindest things
- I trust the process of life

Use a few of the options listed here, or what your intuition guides you towards, to heal and align this energy center to encourage a more open, healthy, confident, connected, successful you with more ease and joy.
As always, this lesson is just in time for me as well! I am humbled and grateful for your support and company on this journey we call Life. Wishing you peace, Love, joy and abundant miracles!
So happy I will be doing readings twice this month at the Unity Healing House.
On May 20th and 29th. Please stop by!
As some of you know, I believe in the energy of Water to assist us. One of the ways I was guided to helps others use Water for their highest healing is by creating Intention Energizers, which uses the energy of crystals, Reiki, sound, color, imagery and Angel essences. I was pleasantly surprised to see in this video that Doreen Virtue also endorses the practice of energizing Water to assist us daily!
