Meaning and task
The sacral chakra stands for the creative flow of pure life energy, our relationship to liveliness and our passion for life. It also plays a central role in expressing and feeling emotions.
The sacral chakra is all about the sensual experience of life, the touching and tasting of the world. Here, our desire as a soul is to interact with life in a joyful way, to participate in the creative play of life energy. The purest forms of vitality, joie de vivre, and emotional self-expression are part of the experience level of the sacral chakra. In the sacral chakra, we express our deepest need to let our life energy flow, to express ourselves, to experience life, to live our creative power.
The sacral chakra represents our experience as a creative, joyful life energy. The connection of the sacral chakra with the gonads and internal sexual organs is the outward manifestation of its connection to the creative power of life – the ability to become the channel for life.
Sexuality is only one aspect of the joyful, sensual and creative expression of our vital energy and our need to experience and touch the world. Emotions are another important aspect, only through our emotions does the earthly experience become ‘real’ for the soul, only the emotions allow a sensual, direct, intense and colorful experience of the world.
The sacral chakra is associated with the element of water and those organs that regulate the water balance in our body – another external manifestation of the flow of life energy. It is the sacral chakra that energizes the etheric body and the physical body, which is why it plays a major role in Chi Gong and Tai Chi, for example. The sacral chakra is therefore responsible for our vitality and overall health.
The sacral chakra is strongly influenced by early childhood experiences between the ages of three and five, which express the authentic desire to relate, touch, taste and experience the world. In addition, in this phase we learn to express and live out our zest for life and energy. If there is no room for this need on the part of the parents, the sacral chakra may be disturbed.
The sacral chakra is associated with the sense of taste, which in itself is a beautiful picture: the soul wants to taste life. Observing toddlers, you will find that they actually put everything in the mouth first – an important time for the development of the sacral chakra.
Another important time is the teenage age, in which the sexual identity is formed.
