Sacral Chakra  
How to recognize blocks
and heal them
The second chakra is called the sacral and Swadhisthana in Sanskrit.  It is located between the navel and the pelvic
bone.  From the back, it is in the sacral of the spine area.

Our inner child resigns within this center.  The inner child can have an affect on our lives for the positive or negative.  
What ever you as a child or adolescent experienced can and will affect your daily life.  It is important to heal past
wounds that happened during that time.  Because if it is not healed, for example, as a child you feared the dark, you
may still fear it as an adult.  

Some of the ways to heal this chakra would be to do releasing.  Reiki is a wonderful way to heal this and to bring more
light into the chakra. Also, in meditation or a quite place, place your hands on your sacral and visualize love and light
energy surrounding this center.  You can also see in your minds eye yourself hugging and or telling your inner child
positive things.

Some of the signs that the base chakra is blocked are:  

Emotions that you had from child hood or as a child that have not been healed.
Not able to finish projects or things that you started.
Excessive or obsessed sexual fantasies or suppressed desires.
You may have a lack of sensual stimulation in the form of touching, caresses, tenderness and affection.
You may feel that you are being over emotional, being ruled by your emotions or even difficult to express emotions.
The feeling that sex is dirty, sinful or dirty.  Also, that religion would be against it and to have pleasure with it.

Situations and events that may have happened in our lives that we could be holding onto that have caused
blocks:

At any age that any type especially sexual, emotional and physical abuse had happened. Had a childhood family that was
or dealt with alcoholics, denial of children’s feelings, abuse that happened to others in family, neglect and rejection.

Blocks that can be within this center can deal with the emotions we have and how we express ourselves to
others and situations:

Being selfish, lustful, conceited, mistrusting others, poor social skills, frigidity, fear of sex and contact, lack of desire,
passion and excitement, low self esteem, fear of change, worrying what other people think, co- dependency, stored
issues, jealousy, unexpressed emotions, stress, fertility issues, creative blocks.  Feeling that sex is a drug and that it
gives you an upper edge in life or over someone.

How the blocks can an affect the physical body:

Females may have any type of female organ problems from minor to major.  Pancreas, bladder, and kidney diseases and
disorders. Kidney issues sometimes can reflect on male’s issues from childhood.  Diabetes relates to not being able to
hold in the sweetness in life.  At times, they may feel only loving things or a person for a short time but not in a
lasting way.  Some will expect so much more than it is even possible.  Hip and pelvic area problems can occur.  Also,
constipation, muscle spasms, PMS, problems with menstrual flow, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, irritable bowel
syndrome, endometriosis testicular and prostate disease.
