Chakras: Signs You Have An Imbalanced Sacral Chakra

The second chakra, svadhishthana otherwise known as the sacral chakra is the energy centre that governs our fertility, sexuality, pleasure and creativity. It is situated approximately one to two inches below the belly button. When this chakra is imbalanced, it can cause numerous issues within the physical body as well as in the energetic body, and this is what I am going to talk about today. In this post, I will be listing physical and emotional symptoms of an under active sacral chakra and an overactive sacral chakra. I am also going to include crystals, herbs, yoga poses and specific foods to help get it back into balance again.
