Thoughts From The Void

Sacral Chakra 

Associated with water, its Sanskrit name is Swadhisthana and translates to “Where your being is established”.

This energy center is often described as being linked to pleasure and sexual expression. I feel this never fully resonated with me. Recently I came across a deeper explanation of this that seemed to fit a bit more for my own understanding. While disfluencies can occur here due to denying or overindulging in the things that bring us pleasure, this is the center of creation. If you think about it, that is kind of what sexual energy is. I feel limiting this chakra to “sex” doesn’t fully do this energy center justice. Our will to create begins here.

The very first thing we create, before we can create anything external, is the self. By denying the things we feel bring us fulfillment and contentment, (both of which can lead to pleasure), we can create blockages in this chakra. An unbalanced approach to creation is what prevents free flowing strong energy here. This can be a lack of belief in ability to create, it can be a lack of self-control and creating in a way that causes harm to the self. Every action, every thought we make creates our existence. When we lack balance in these areas, we see it within this chakra. It is more than sex and pleasure, it is our foundational self, built upon the security that was established within the root chakra below it.
