What does the Sacral or Svadhishthana Chakra govern?
This chakra is located above the pubic bone and below the naval at the level of the lumbar vertebrae. It is extremely crucial for the sacral chakra to be balanced in order to live our lives to the fullest, discover our true passions, finding emotional stability and authenticity. The word Svadhisthana breaks down into two sanskrit words : "Sva" means one's own and 'adhisthana' means abode or seat. It translates into "the dwelling place of self".
The sacral chakra governs a person's feelings, emotions, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy & connection. The energy of this chakra allows us to let go, to feel change and to witness the transformation occurring in our bodies. It allows us to experience as it is, in its own fullness. The focus of this chakra is to create, this creativity can be expressed as procreation but it is most definitely not limited to it. When we cook, garden, paint we are finding new solutions to old problems. Transformation into something new is creation! Imbalances in the sacral chakra may manifest in the form of laziness, weak sex drive, trying to "fit in", possessiveness, sexual addiction and also in the physical as problems like irregular menstrual cycle, tension in muscles and kidney issues.
By now you must have gauged that most of the issue that creates an imbalance is emotional rather than physical. Our sense of smell is on the best tools to assist with reprogramming our minds as it is beyond the barrier of perceptions and the conscious mind.
