How To Heal Your Sacral Chakra

by Mindvalley December 20, 2017
Our life force, or chi, flows properly through the body when all seven chakras are in balance. However, when even one chakra is blocked, it can affect your entire wellbeing. Here are ways you can heal your sacral chakra.

Chakras can be described as meeting points of energy channels through which energy flows. They are located along the centerline of the body. There are seven chakras that coincide with the various energies of our bodies.

Our life force, or chi, flows properly through the body when all seven chakras are in balance. However, when they become blocked, even if it’s just one chakra, it can affect the other six chakras and ultimately, your entire wellbeing. So, it’s important to maintain a healthy sacral chakra.

In this article, we focus on the second chakra, its association to the color orange, and what you can do to heal it if it becomes blocked.

What Is The Sacral Chakra?


Svadhisthana is the center of pleasure and when this energy is healthy, it brings a powerful and natural feeling of intimacy.

When you feel that the ideas of passion and intimacy are pleasurable and natural, your sacral chakra is strong and healthy. It brings a feeling of happiness to your body and spirit. Life is joyous and bright.

However, when the chakra is blocked, you will encounter emotional and intimacy issues in your relationships. Additionally, you can experience misuse of sexual energy and others relating to personal ethics, self-esteem, and creativity.

Why Is The Sacral Chakra Orange?


The sacral chakra originates from the Sanskrit word ‘svadhishthana,’ which translates as ‘one’s own place.’ It represents the very center of ‘You’ and refers to the true and untarnished aspects of the real you.

Its association with the color orange stands for warmth and emotion. And so, when your sacral chakra is balanced, it radiates warmth and enables you to speak openly about your emotions.

Sacral Chakra Imbalance


How can you find out if your chakra is out of balance? Take a look at the signs to know if you’re suffering from a sacral chakra imbalance.

Signs Of An Open Sacral Chakra

A person with an opened svadhisthana generally is:

  • Passionate
  • Present in their body
  • Sensual
  • Creative
  • Connected to their feeling
  • Emotionally stable
  • Joyful most of the time

Signs Of A Closed Sacral Chakra

Someone with a blocked svadhisthana generally:

  • Find it hard to associate with other people and the world around
  • Can’t keep emotions and ability in balance
  • Are unemotional
  • Feel insecure
  • Fail to deal with life’s changes
  • Lack self-confidence

Other signs that can indicate a closed sacral chakra would include depression, constant anxiety, constant fear, and a complete lack of joy in one’s life.

So, if you find yourself in any of these situations, ask yourself these question:

  • Has your energy felt off in one or more areas of your life?
  • Are you specifically finding it hard to even get excited about being excited?
  • Trying to remember even how to get you going again?

If your answers to the questions above are ‘yes,’ then it’s time to get your sacral chakra back into line so you can enjoy all that life has to offer.

7 Ways To Heal Sacral Chakra


One of the most positive things about healing your 2nd chakra is that all it really requires is for you to do more of what makes you happy. It’s doing all the simple things, like dancing, singing, yoga, or running.

Here are seven ways you can heal your sacral chakra:

1. Meditate And Visualize

Meditate and visualize the color orange, which is the sacral chakra’s color.

2. Let Go

It helps to let go. When you let go of unhealthy emotions, people, and memories, you let go of all the negative emotional baggage and make space and energy for better opportunities in life.

3. Yoga

Essentially, one has to go through all 12 poses to regain balance and make sure they are as centered as possible at all times.

However, there are specific yoga poses that can be carried out for those who wish to control this center of pleasure and passion and take action on their own. The sun salutation pose is a good start and can provide order as required early in the morning.

4. Mantra

The mantra sound that corresponds to the sacral chakra is the sound VAM. By chanting VAM, the vibrations will open and align this chakra.

You know that the color corresponding to this chakra is orange and the gemstones for this chakra are amber, calcite orange, carnelian, or hematite. So, imagine a bright, healing orange glow filling up your entire lower abdomen.

To heal a specific injury or disease in your body, focus on the specific part of your body and ‘send’ your breath and the color orange to it.

5. Mudras

The mudras or hand gesture associate with the sacral chakra is called the Sakthi Mudra.

  • With your palms in front of your chest, press your pinky and ring fingertips together.
  • Fold your thumbs into your palms, inside of your index and middle finger. You can then press the knuckles of these two fingers together (pictured) or keep them separate.

This gesture can be used during meditation and to help with opening up the chakra.

6. Acupressure

Another method that can be applied would be to use acupressure. There are many rigid parts of the human body that tend to cause issues and it is recommended to use acupressure as a means to release this tension. With the help of the right techniques, acupressure can provide tremendous relief for those who are seeking out proper healing now and in the future.

7. Other Methods

It has also been known that other methods such as sexual intimacy, massage, adding clothes featuring the sacral chakra to your wardrobe, and playful contact sports are proven to help with balancing the chakra.
