What is the Sacral Chakra?
The sacral chakra is the second chakra, located just below the navel. This is the very center of ‘You’. The Sanskrit word Swadhisthana translates as “one’s own place” and refers to the true and untarnished aspects of the real you. The energy associated with the Swadhisthana is a vibrant orange color, symbolic of your inner flame – the eternal, infinite flame that is your true nature.

The sacral chakra is your pleasure center and the human emotional drive. It helps you experience pleasure both from physical and emotional sources and gives you a richer life experience. It is a valuable teacher, pointing you toward things that give you pleasure and away from things that cause you pain, which, if the sacral chakra is open, will lead you to a happy, healthy, fulfilled life experience. The energy that gives you the ability to experience pleasure helps nurture your sense of abundance, happiness, resourcefulness and well-being.
The sacral chakra is orange – the color of positive emotions, pleasure and success. The optimal way to succeed is to follow your heart and do something in alignment with your natural gifts and talents… or, find bliss in being who you are.
The Swadhisthana allows you to find pleasure in self-expression. You define ourselves by what you do, and from the personal relationships you have. A great way to find out if your sacral chakra is healthy is by looking at your activities: are the things you do bringing you healthy pleasure or are your activities based in a need to escape or satisfy a purely physical urge? If your self-respect is high; if you’re enthusiastic, sociable, energetic and self-assured, your sacral chakra is strong.
