functions. This week our focus is on the sacral chakra that is located between the belly button and pubic bone. It is associated with the colour orange and focuses on the energy around movement, creativity and pleasure.

When working with the Chakras our goal is for each chakra to be balanced so that we are free from disease in the body and dis-ease in the mind, soul and spirit. However, in modern-day life, achieving this balance can be difficult. We can find that any one of our Chakras can be underactive, overactive, or even blocked. So what do you need to look out for to know what your Sacral is doing?

Blocked Sacral Chakra

A sign that our sacral chakra is blogged is that we often feel an overwhelming sense of guilt. A feeling that we aren't doing or being enough. We may suffer an inferiority complex or view ourselves in a very negative light and feel that we deserve to be punished. We may have difficulty with intimacy, either in forming healthy physical attachments or in the way we view sexual relationships.

Physical ailments that indicate an imbalance in the sacral chakra include:

  • Lower back pain

  • Arthritis

  • Genital or sexual problems
