Open sacral chakra
People whose sacral chakra is fully open have a passionate love for being alive. They love to feel and express their liveliness. They are a channel for the joyful and sensual creative energy of life. They take part in the creative play of life energy. Their basic experience of life is a vibrant joy and original passion. They feel and live their emotions in complete confidence. They are in the middle of the life stream and are quite here. A pleasurable sex life is part of their being, as they are easily opened up and devoted to the moment and other people. They love to let their sexual energy flow and enjoy sexual energy with others.
They are one with the authentic needs of body and soul, shame or guilt are foreign to them. This results in deep self-love and self-acceptance and a natural devotion to the experience as a human being with all authentic human needs and desires.
They can express and communicate themselves through creative action in the world. Of course, this inner balance is also reflected in positive relationships with other people, including love relationships.
Through an open sacral chakra the relationship to the basic layers of the psyche and the body is characterized by harmonious purity. People with an open, sacral chakra sense their physical and human needs and fulfill them with carefree and joyful self-evidentness eg in the form of touch, movement, sufficient rest and fresh air.
Since this chakra also influences the reproductive instinct, it is also related to the role perception as mother and father. People with an open sacral chakra feel relatively safe in their role as parents and in dealing with childlike emotions, as they have fully integrated them in themselves.
Disorders of the sacral chakra
The sacral chakra processes sensual, sexual and emotional experiences. A blockade can either be due to a lack of such experience or overwhelmed by too intense experiences.
A sacral chakra is often blocked in childhood, when the original self-expression and the realization of authentic needs lead to negative feedback from the environment and painful experiences.
Common causes of a disorder in the sacral chakra would be lack of affection, suppression of emotional expression, overwhelming emotional experiences, too little or no physical closeness and tenderness sharing, or serious traumas such as sexual abuse.
Also, a suppression of sexuality during puberty may later lead to a blocked sacral chakra and an inhibited or disturbed sex life.
Psychic effects of a blockade in the sacral chakra
In my experience, these disorders can be expressed as follows: Loss of vitality, chronic fatigue and listlessness by closing against the flow of life energy, a fear of interacting with the environment, gaining experience, trying out and experimenting. An energetic and emotional “dehydration” that often leads to lack of vitality and health. An inability to enjoy physical contact, difficulty in allowing intimacy, orgasms and erectile dysfunction. This area also includes the general disapproval of sex and the loss of libido. Even the complete opposite, such as sex addiction and nymphomania can be interpreted as a sign of a disturbed sacral chakra.
A disturbance of the sacral chakra, in my opinion, often manifests itself in problems of admitting and expressing one’s own emotions and / or dealing with the emotions of others. In my experience, sufferers often complain about loneliness and a sense of strangeness, they feel cut off from life and do not experience themselves as truly alive. They are often plagued by strong mood swings and often extreme jealousy.
Physical effects of a blockage in the sacral chakra
On the physical level, in my experience, a blockage of the sacral chakra in the following problems express: Chronic fatigue, diseases of the uterus and ovaries, prostate and testicular diseases, potency disorders, genital fungal diseases, venereal diseases, kidney disease, bladder problems, urinary tract infections, pain in the area Lumbar spine and hip pain due to lack of flexibility.
Open sacral chakra
The sacral chakra opens when we can re-indulge in the vibrating flow of life energy, and we can again respond to our basic need to enter into joyful interaction as a soul with life and the world.
The following strategies can be very helpful for this:
- Reprocessing of early childhood and karmic experiences and traumas
- To develop a new relationship with sensuality and liveliness. For example through dance, sensual experiences, creativity, sociability, sexuality
- Addressing guilt, shame, embarrassment and other obstacles that prevent us from loving our human needs.
- Cakra meditation and energy work
- Sensual body work (eg oil massage, therapeutic dance)
- Connection with the element of water through sufficient drinking, swimming, walks on rivers and the sea.
- Support through gemstones, singing bowls, flavors, nutrition
