The second primary Chara is the Sacral, known in Sanskrit as Swadhisthana: Swa meaning ‘self’ & adhishthana means ‘established’.
Our Sacral Chakra represents creativity, relationships, and sexuality. It’s basically our emotional center and a main stay in our identity. It’s the cornerstone of a healthy ego, allowing a strong sense of self without feeling we need to pretend, or wear a “face.” It allows us to feel reliant and able to bounce back if things in life go a bit pear shaped. Its key to the giving and receiving of love, abundance, support, ideas.
If the Sacral is out of balance it can lead to any number of minor or major issues: addictions, controlling relationships, loss of financial and/or creative energy, emotional instability, fear of change, sexual dysfunction, depression, low back pain – you get the drift. I’m sorry that’s a bit of a dim, and extensive, list but informative I hope. I certainly feel energized to make sure I’ve got my Sacral Chakra open and balanced.
If you like to work with crystals and stones to aid in the process of working on/healing your chakras here is a short list for the Sacral (2nd) chakra:
