When all seven main chakras are balanced and open people claim to experience wholeness in their mind, body and spirit. Since each of the chakras relate to specific mental and physical functions, there are usually signs or symptoms when one or more is not functioning correctly. The sacral chakra is directly related to emotions, sexuality and other feelings and for some people may be the answer to why they are unhappy in their life.
Signs of an Open Sacral Chakra
A sacral chakra that is working correctly results in effective and sensible decision making, good survival instincts and a healthier body. A well balanced sacral chakra releases physical and emotional gratification and free creative expression. Because this chakra has such a connection to the sexual and emotional aspects of the human body, those whose sacra chakra is healthy experience fulfilling sex lives, balanced emotions and have a trusting nature. Confidence, physical grace and creativity also indicate that the sacral chakra is in proper balance.
A blocked sacral chakra can cause numerous problems related to sexual function. A blockage can cause problems with all of the emotions that are connected to the sexual relationship. It can cause people to avoid sex and lack spontaneity or even pleasure. It can result in selfishness, awkwardness, negativity and the inability to express true feelings. An unbalanced sacral chakra in a man can mean impotence and other sexual disorders. For women, low libido and pain can be the result of such a blockage. Sexual obsession has been observed in both men and women who have blocked sacral chakras.
A blocked or imbalanced sacral chakra can cause low back pain, constipation and problems with major organs like kidneys and gall bladder. It can sometimes produce symptoms such as pelvic pain, stomach indigestion and blockage of the upper intestines. Diseases such as cancer are sometimes present in the ovaries of women or the testes of men. The health of the sacral chakra can also effect reproduction and fertility. It can also lead to eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and food addition.
Mental confusion and dysfunction can be the result of an out of balance sacral chakra. Some people exhibit cloudiness in their thinking with an inability to make decisions. Others find themselves unable to put thoughts together in their mind and have trouble forming words to express their feelings or opinions.
A sacral chakra devoid of balance can cause distress and negative emotions such as self pity, guilt and manipulation. It can lead to feelings of victimization or martyrdom. The imbalance can cause unhealthy jealousy and envy.
A person with a blocked sacral chakra will exhibit extremes in sexual behavior and relationships. They are unable to strike a balance and stay within reasonable boundaries. If the chakra is over active they will display a constant need to be sexually gratified to the point that it becomes unhealthy. They will both manipulate and allow themselves to be manipulated in their sexual relationships. If the imbalance results in an under active chakra, a person will behave based on past issues and close the door on any happiness that can result from love or sex.
Physic and Spiritual
An imbalanced chakra can block physic receptivity due to imbalance in the spirit. People who have psychic ability are unable to clearly hear or understand messages that are from the other side. They are no longer able to predict futures or comprehend the meanings of readings or communications.
Help for a Blocked Sacral Chakra
There are many techniques used by people to open the sacral chakra. Mind techniques such as meditation and visualization are often performed in order to unblock this chakra. Visualization, guided chakra cleansing and yoga exercises also help people to balance the sacral chakra.
There are several crystals and stones that are used to heal the sacral chakra. The carnelian stone, a reddish brown gemstone well known in metaphysical circles, is very often used to revitalize this chakra. The carnelian is known as the gemstone of self esteem. It is believed to work by releasing motivation, clarity, healing and self alignment. It is kept in the pocket of believers who rub it at the moment they feel a stressful situation evolving.
