Sacral Chakra Imbalances
If your sacral chakra is underactive, there may be an urge to overeat & be more sexually aroused than normal, this could end up giving you chronic skin conditions, disease, food intolerance, impotence & obesity.
An overactive sacral chakra can lead to confused sexuality, unless it’s balanced by the influence of the heart chakra.
Chakra teachings tell us to regain sacral (sacred) equilibrium through breathing exercises, dance, laughter – a good belly laugh, yoga & visualising orange light.
If you eat orange coloured food – carrots, mangoes, oranges & sweet potatoes it will help balance this important chakra.
The sacral chakra is responsible for developing the caring & home making qualities, in both men & women.
All relationships & family teamwork are functions of the sacral chakra & many emotions go through this chakra.
It’s important to be aware of a build up of stress levels in this area.
Many chakras work in pairs & physiologically your sacral chakra is linked to your throat chakra.
If your throat chakra is blocked, it will have a negative effect on your sacral chakra.
A healer will work on both chakras to bring them into balance.
The keyword for the sacral chakra is relationships on all levels.
Ancestral & Karmic Links
There are many different versions of Karma, in India it is said to be the continual wheel of birth, death & rebirth; sometimes it’s referred to as the law of cause & effect, or as you sow, so shall you reap.
Another definition of karma is an expression of the degree to which we have become separate from God.
Karma is closely linked to your sacral chakra, this is because it is said to carry memories of ancestral & family issues from past lives.
