How to Heal Your Sacral Chakra (heal skin, hormones, back/menstrual pain, sex organs and more)
Low sex drive? Menstrual pain? Have acne or other skin problems? Do you have issues with any reproductive/sex organs? If so, you probably need to heal your sacral chakra.
This post is the second post in a series I'm writing all about healing your chakras. Before you read this post please make sure you've checked out the overview post about your 7 chakras that you can read here: The 7 Chakras: An Overview and How to Heal Your Root Chakra.
As I mentioned in that overview post, it is important to work on clearing, activating, and healing your chakras from the bottom up so be sure to heal your root chakra before healing your sacral chakra, and do not heal the others until these two have been worked on.
How to tell if you need to heal your Sacral chakra
Your sacral chakra is right under your navel. You will know that your sacral chakra is off balanced or turned off if you have problems in your testicles, prostate, ovaries, and/or uterus, if you have impotence, menstrual pain, hormone issues, fertility/reproductive issues, mood swings, and/or a sex drive that is too low or too high.
Ailments due to a blocked sacral chakra:
- Bladder/urinary infections
- Fungus infections in the sexual organs
- Inflammation of the ovaries
- Kidney problems
- Lower back pain
- Menstrual pain
- Pain in hips & joints
- Prostate problems
- Sexual ailments
- Skin problems
- Testicular ailments
- Uterine ailments
- Weak bladder
A Healthy Sacral Chakra
You'll know your sacral chakra is healthy when you are enjoying life, have a healthy connection with your sensuality and sex drive, you'll recognize and appreciate the beauty in your life, you won't be too controlling, too hard on yourself, or be too disciplined, you'll be creative and won't feel jealousy, back pain, impotence, severe menstrual pain, or feel that materialistic things are controlling you.
There are many ways to heal each chakra. I will go through the common ones that usually don't need a professional. Using a professional is, however, always better. It is the difference between seeing a therapist and venting to a friend. You also might not go see a doctor for a cold and can nurse yourself back to health, but you would see a doctor for a broken arm. Same logic works for energy healing. If you have serious energy blockages that are resulting in severe depression, mood disorders, and other serious illnesses you should see a professional. Healing yourself is more for upkeep and tune-ups of your energy, not complete energy shifts.
Use the following therapies in combination for the best effect.
To activate your sacral chakra visualize it moving. Your sacral chakra is the second slowest moving chakra (root is the slowest), it spins clockwise, and each chakra moves a bit faster as you move upward. Your crown chakra moves so fast you can't tell its moving whereas your sacral chakra is just a tad faster than the root. You can watching videos/gifs of the speed to help you visualize.
Wearing a rough or tumbled stone against your skin is the best way to ensure the energy will be absorbed. Gemstones work by shifting the energy that passes through it or around it, similar to how sunscreen blocks UV light or how crystals are used in watches and radios. Each crystal shifts the energy differently so use these with purpose.
Orange gemstones are going to be used for your sacral chakra (since it's orange...). For healing your sacral chakra you can use gold topaz, aventurine, coral, and fire opal for optimum benefit. There are many other stones that heal your sacral chakra as well, but these are the most powerful for it.
For the best result, place the gemstone directly on your skin on the chakra, in this case, your sacral chakra is located under your navel.
The best essential oils to use for your sacral chakra are orange, pepper, myrrh, sandalwood, and vanilla. The important thing is that you smell it, the how isn't that important. You can diffuse it, put it in an oil burner, use it in a spray (mix witch hazel, water, and a few drops of essential oil), use it as an oil on your body (essential oil is very strong so you need to put it in a base of grape-seed, olive oil, etc.), put a few drops onto lava stones on a bracelet, the options are really endless. Remember that the sacral chakra is all about being sensual so using these in a bath or partner massage will be more helpful.
For effectiveness, use these oils while you also use the other therapies. Combining all of the therapies will be the most effective.
Affirmations harness the power of positive thinking. You're essentially telling yourself over and over what you want to happen in a positive manner. Your unconscious mind is programmed to think how it does, and it can be reprogrammed just as a computer can. If right now your mind is programmed to promote illness, positive affirmations are how you reprogram your mind to promote healing. It's really that simple. Despite the simplicity, however, I've found positive affirmations to be the most powerful method of healing.
Affirmations to repeat right after you wake up and before you go to sleep:
- I enjoy life with all of my senses
- I give my creativity and joy in living free rein
- I love and accept my body and my sensuality
You can find others online, Pintrest, or just repeat what you need to hear! I write them on my mirror, use them as my phone background, whatever I can to make sure I see them everyday.
Energy massage is a delicate-touch massage that you can do to yourself or a partner. You intertwine your fingers, laying on your back, and place your hands over the chakra you're working on. Your left hand is on the chakra (energy comes in through the left) and your right hand should be on top of the left. Energy flows through your hand chakras to your chakra. While gently massaging, breathe deeply and visualize the color of the chakra as healing light. For your sacral chakra visualize an orange, healing light illuminating your sacral chakra.
Rubbing your hands before you begin stimulates energy. Your sacral chakra is located under your navel, so this is where your hands should be placed. As you breathe... breathe in healing energy and breathe out negative energy. I visualize negative energy as smoke, but everyone's different so do what works for you.
The type of plant will determine how you use it. I usually use tea. For healing the sacral chakra drink a large cup of nettle, and/or yarrow tea twice per day. Also try to eat fresh parsley when you can as this also heals the sacral chakra. HOWEVER... do not use any of these if you are pregnant.
Use these healing methods together
As I stated, using all of these methods together will be the most effective. While receiving your energy massage, repeat affirmations, have your stones on your chakra, have the oil in a diffuser, visualize the healing light, and then have a cup of sacral chakra tea afterward.
Your Sacral chakra in your routine
To keep your chakra balanced make sure that you:
- Heal with water (bathe, swim, walk by an ocean/lake)
- Drink water!
- Also drink herbal teas
- Be creative (paint, cook, color, whatever)
- Embrace your sensuality! You have my permission, don't be ashamed of it. Shame turns off your sacral chakra.
- Try a tantric yoga course
- DANCE! Belly dancing, tango, salsa, all of these romantic dances will energize your sacral chakra
Make sure you protect yourself before you start any healing work. I wrote a post on how to smudge that you can read here. Make sure you ask your guides/angels for protection as well.
If you have any questions about any of this please let me know!
