Balancing Chakra - Sacral

Updated: Apr 11

As discussed in the "Understanding Chakras" blog post on our main chakras, it is clear to say that having balanced chakras is important since it impacts on all areas of our life. Our chakras acts as both transmitters and receptors, meaning the frequency at which you emit energy will match the frequency of what you receive in your life.

Chakra balancing is a process of clearing blockages and bringing the chakras to flow at an optimal rate. The health of your chakras and energy field determines how you feel and experience your life’s situations. Having balanced chakras allows us to be more self-aware, therefore learning the lessons that we are here to learn before they manifest in the form of illness or loss. Balanced chakras allows for physical and emotional well-being.

We also want to keep our frequency high with balanced chakras, so as to attract people, abundance and opportunities in the highest possible frequency. Therefore, it is crucial for us to be able to identify blocked chakras and work to bring them back to balance.

Today, we will dive into some ways we can balance our Sacral chakra and keep it in alignment.

Sacral Chakra

How to balance it:

Essential oils

Concentrations of plants and carries a high frequency that can be inhaled directly into our nervous system. As the nervous system is closely linked to our brains and emotions, they are powerful in activating the chakras, working to keep them in balance.

  • Use sandalwood essential oils

Activities to help connect with your Sacral chakra

  • Do something romantic, even if just for yourself, Try creative activities (Painting, Writing), Wear orange

Mediate with crystals or chakra balancing mediation

Also discussed in the "Understanding Chakras" post on how each chakra correspond to a different color of the rainbow. Crystals often come to mind at the mention of chakras or energy healing and it is no surprise since crystals come in all shapes and colors. Crystals are a product of mother nature, making them essentially filled with that same pure universal energy that would be helpful in giving that extra boost when we are mediating with them.

  • One method is to place each crystal on the body at the corresponding chakra point, while playing some soothing music to relax and unwind. Remember not to over stress over placing each crystal at the "perfect" spot as the intention is ultimately key in healing work and do not worry about falling asleep. They will work its magic regardless of your consciousness :)

  • Another method is simply be comfortably seated while holding the chosen crystals in the palms of your hands. Play some chakra mediation music, close your eyes and mediate. I find this method to work best for me, as I find my senses heightened gradually while I go deeper into mediation and am able to focus on the flow of the energy from the crystals in my palms without being overwhelmed.

  • If you do not have any crystals and do not wish to buy any at the moment, it is totally fine too. Crystals provide a boost and a physical connection but is not a necessity. Simply find a comfortable position and play some chakra meditation music through youtube or an app (we recommend Insight Timer) and just go into mediation. Working with your intention to unblock and balance as you focus on each chakra as you go along, or work on a specific chakra of your choice. Nothing fancy but equally effective. We also suggest for beginners to try working on one chakra each day and go in rotation for those who likes routine but afraid of being overwhelmed. Feel free to change up the sequence as needed. Just go with the flow and trust your instincts. There is no right or wrong!

Crystals to use:

  • Orange calcite is said to enhance creativity, help you move past the emotional barrier and reunite mind and body.

  • Moonstone comes in many colors, but you should opt for peach moonstone due to its connection to stimulating the mind. It is also meant to reduce worry and carry a kind of loving energy.

  • Carnelian in reddish-brown hue is perfect for sacral chakra work because it is the Singer’s Stone. This means it has an intrinsic link with your creativity and artistry.

  • Citrine is known to increase self-esteem, which is ideal if your blocked sacral chakra is leading to reduced confidence or issues with jealousy.

Chakra balancing Yoga

An easy way to align chakras is through yoga as it works to move energy in your body even when you are not focusing on it.

There are several yoga poses that have been known to correspond to each chakra. With each yoga pose, it moves energy within the body to unblock the corresponding chakra and balancing it.
