Have you always wondered why healing your Sacral Chakra is essential when it comes to creating your own damn magic? The Sacral Chakra or Svadhishthana is the second chakra in your chakra system - the very first floor of the spiritual building of yourself. That is why it’s very important to understand how your sacral chakra works, what are the signs of imbalance, and how to keep it in check regularly.

What Is The Sacral Chakra?

The Sacral Chakra - Svadhishthana (in Sanskrit) is the second chakra of the chakras of matter and all chakras. It’s the center of creativity, passion, and pleasure. One might say that this is the chakra from which we get the zest for life and the energy center that helps us enjoy our lives to the fullest. 

The Sanskrit name Svadhishthana comes from the two words - Sva which means “self” and Adhishthana which means “established”. Think of it like this, once you have balanced the Root Chakra - the foundation, you are building the second layer of existence.

Besides the bare necessities in life, you need something more, you need to find your interests, passions in life, and to experience personal freedom to create.

And as you indulge in creating this beautiful part of your life, you are also spiritually building the second floor of your spiritual system - thus you are already self-established, like the Sanskrit name of the Sacral Chakra suggests. When you want to express your creative nature and discover the passions that bring pleasure to your life and your current existence, when you want to devote yourself to your imagination, personal freedom, and self-creation, and create your own damn magic, you need to step up on the next level and stimulate and harmonize the Sacral Chakra.

The Sacral Chakra is the center of creativity, imagination, and satisfaction. Everything that brings you pleasure in life, including your libido, sex drive all comes from the Sacral Chakra. As such, whenever your sacral chakra is imbalanced, you will feel dissatisfied in life, lack of creativity or everything in your life will lack pleasure.

How To Know Whether Your Sacral Chakra Is Imbalanced?

In other words, the Sacral Chakra is all about not just simple survival, but also about pleasure, and the quality of life you are having. When the Sacral chakra is balanced, you will feel like you are finally enjoying your life, and you will find beauty in the most random and beautiful moments of life filled with joy.

You will be more joyful, more energized, and filled with a zest for life. You will find pleasure in every chapter of your life. However when this balance is disturbed, the signs can be seen all over your life, and even physical symptoms may occur.

Whether your chakra is underactive, overactive, or blocked – it’s important to understand properly how the disbalance occurred so that you can more easily balance the sacral chakra. The three major issues that you can experience connected to sacral chakra imbalance are underactive, overactive, or blocked sacral chakra.

Signs Of An Underactive Sacral Chakra

If your Sacral Chakra is underactive, your zest for life will be non-existent. Constant fatigue and tiredness will take over your life. You will feel like life has been depleted from you, and you will have zero energy to pursue your goals.

Sleeping in, and staying in bed the whole day once in a while is great, however, if you have been experiencing energy depletion for a longer time, then your Sacral Chakra is probably underactive and needs energy replenishment.

Signs Of An Overactive Sacral Chakra

One of the most major issues that you will be facing when your sacral chakra is overactive is mood and energy swings. The Sacral Chakra is a center of your zest for life, passion, and pleasure. If your Sacral Chakra is overactive, then constant energy shifts and mood swings will be a constant issue you will be facing.

If the last period is marked with constantly being filled with high energy, and then your energy levels suddenly dropping and being unable to manage your emotions is a major sign of an overactive sacral chakra. If you experience any of these symptoms, then you are in need or rebalancing the life energy of your sacral chakra.

Signs Of A Blocked Sacral Chakra

If your sacral chakra is blocked, then the most common issue that you might be facing is a lack of creativity and creative blocks. As a center of creativity, whenever the energy is blocked, built up, and not flowing at all, creative blocks will creep up in your life.

Sometimes we all have creative blocks, however when they persist, when you feel drained of ideas for a very long time, and like this creative block can’t be pushed through - then you are definitely dealing with a blocked sacral chakra.

Other signs of blockage or imbalance also include:

  • Boredom

  • Feeling easily offended

  • Lack of creative inspiration

  • Fear of change

  • Guilt about the past

  • Low self-worth

  • Jealousy

  • Addictive behaviors (including the unhealthy use of drugs or alcohol, but also extending to behaviors like excessive spending, sexual compulsions, gambling problems, and overeating).

  • Low energy

  • Reduced libido
