The Sacral Chakra is all about balancing Emotions, our Creativity and our Sexuality. It is the home of the Emotional body, it helps maintain a healthy yin/yang balance. It’s element is water, if you crave water you might be needing some sacral chakra balancing. Sweet Fruits/juices, especially Strawberry and Mangos are wonderful for this chakra. It’s all about feeling and emotions. How we produce our Creativity into the world. How we see ourselves by expressing our emotions. It’s color is orange, so if you are imbalanced within the sacral you will want to bring the color orange into your awareness, It sounds silly but there is true power in color healing because we are made of light, our light produces various frequencies within the spectrum of color. So our chakras can be helped by colors as well. Ultimately it is about healing the thought pattern that caused the blockage of the Sacral. It could be about creativity, sexual repression, sex addiction, not expressing emotions,Shame, guilt, It is also about learning to let go and accept change.
