The chances of meeting someone who has permanently unblocked all seven chakra centers are rare, although this is definitely the goal! Most of us are dealing with at least a couple of blocked chakras, whether our root, heart, or throat chakra. If you currently feel out of balance sexually or creatively, you might have a blocked sacral chakra, which could cause it to be underactive or overactive (more on that later). One of the simplest (and most effective) ways to heal this energy center is by working with specific sacral chakra affirmations that resonate with you and your current struggles.
This post will show you how to unblock your sacral chakra by weaving affirmations into your daily practice, whether repeating them out loud, writing them in your journal, or incorporating them into your meditation practice.
What is the sacral chakra?
“Chakra” is a Sanskrit word for “wheel” or “disk.” Chakras are energy centers in your body, and there are seven in total, each relating to different nerves and organs. When your chakras are open and unblocked, energy can move freely through your entire body. You’ll feel balanced and connected to yourself and your world.
The seven chakras:
- Root chakra (first chakra)
- Sacral chakra (second chakra)
- Solar plexus chakra (third chakra)
- Heart chakra (fourth chakra)
- Throat chakra (fifth chakra)
- Third eye chakra (sixth chakra)
- Crown chakra (seventh chakra)
This post will focus on the sacral chakra (known as Svadhishthana in Sanskrit), the second chakra symbolized by an orange lotus flower. This chakra is located at the center of your lower abdomen, below the belly button, and at your womb space.
The sacral chakra is where women hold their sexual energy, while men hold their sexual energy in the root chakra (because their sexual organs sit slightly lower).
Your sacral chakra governs your sensual and sexual energy, creative energy, intuition (hence the term “womb wisdom”), emotions, and relationships. This chakra allows us to feel pleasure for pleasure’s sake; it influences our feelings and lets us make art.
Most of us know that we’re either sexually or creatively blocked on some level. Both are linked to blockages in our sacral chakra. Unblocking and opening the sacral chakra with affirmations helps us live a more passionate, pleasurable, and vibrant life and create and maintain healthy relationships. Who wouldn’t want that?!
Why does it get blocked?
There are two primary reasons why the sacral chakra gets blocked.
Firstly, our current society has a fucked up relationship with sex. We don’t talk about it. We shy away from it. And we reduce it to something purely physical and biological.
Men are sold it as a commodity (porn, strip clubs, prostitutes), while women are taught that it’s wrong, dirty, and something that is only done to procreate or give a man pleasure. This is baffling once you know that the clitoris is the only sexual organ made purely for pleasure. Men do not have an organ like this, nor do any other mammals on Earth.
The second reason our sacral chakra gets blocked is that we live in a society that does not honor or value the feminine (but she is rising). Masculine traits are valued, while feminine ones are ignored or deemed worthless. Logic is a masculine trait, while creativity is its opposite and a feminine trait.
This is why our education systems, workplaces, and many parents don’t encourage or nurture creativity. And this leads many of us to believe we’re not creative, but the truth is, we all have access to the same amount of creative energy. Some of us are just tapped into this far more than others.
Think about what the cause of your blockage might be. Because when you find the cause, you can start to heal your sacral chakra, by rewriting your beliefs, working with affirmations, and engaging in other holistic energy practices.
What are the symptoms of a blocked sacral chakra?
There are two ways that a sacral chakra blockage can manifest. It can be underactive or overactive, or it might flit between these. All of these indicate a struggle to find a healthy balance.
The good news is, all of these symptoms can be healed, and sacral chakra affirmations are a great place to start.
- Feeling low-energy or lazy
- Lack of creativity
- Low libido
- Loss of joy and excitement
- Unable to express emotions
- Feeling unloved
- Low self-worth
- Sexual addiction
- Uses sex to deal with emotions
- Mood swings
- Unhealthy attachments
- Overemotional / ruled by emotions
- Lack of boundaries
- Creates or is drawn to drama
What are chakra affirmations?
Affirmations are phrases (often starting with “I am…”) that help us cultivate a more positive, empowered mindset and help us manifest our deepest soul desires. You might have heard the phrase, “thoughts become things,” or read The Secret, which is built on the belief that we create our reality with our minds.
Repeating affirmations can help us unblock and heal our chakras so that energy can flow freely through us. Our intentions can direct this energy and create more harmony. And this is also backed by research.
