Rituals For A Blocked Sacral Chakra
The Swadhisthana Chakra, also known as the sex chakra, is located in the pelvic area. Since it rules our ability for creativity, sensuality, our relationship with joy and our inner child, it is to be expected that when this energy centre is imbalanced, one cannot find joy and have manic behaviour and sexuality issues. Many rituals can be used to bring your sacral chakra back into balance:
Orange Is The Key
When healing this chakra, orange is a colour that you need to work with which can look like eating peaches or apricots. In the same way, crystals that are orange, reddish or even yellow can help realign this energy centre. For example, for this purpose crystals like amber, carnelian, orange calcite and jasper are perfect to work with in this case.
Water & Movement
This chakra is connected to the element of water, so drinking more fluid will help, while doing rituals that keep you near bodies of water, such as swimming, going out in the rain or even taking warm baths. The aspect of water represents fluidity so one can also opt for dancing as that helps the body connect to its fluid and intuitive movements.
Another way to reach this fluidity is to release any blockages by allowing your body to allow emotional catharsis through the movement of laughing, crying, stamping around or jumping. Many yoga poses can also be used to exercise the same purpose.
Yoga & Exploration
Some poses that stretch and open this chakra to stimulate healing are Anjaneyasana the low lunge, Ardha Matsyendrasana the half lord of the fish pose and Baddha Konasanapose the bound angle pose. You can also add a mantra for this chakra: “Vam”.
In the end, exploration is your best friend and will help realign any deficits. You can explore your sexuality through journaling, working with your body solo or being sexually active creatively with a partner.
