Chakras are energy vortexes that are located at various points in our body through which the energy is released and received. Each of the seven chakras has a specific function, yet they're also inter-linked. The sacral chakra, however, is one of the most important one of the seven chakras. Why, you ask? Well, because it's related to feelings and emotions—your relationship health, sexual expression, and the ability to orgasm are dependent on its balance. And to be physically and emotionally healthy, it's imperative to make sure that this vital chakra isn't blocked. Luckily for you, we have five easy ways you can cleanse and activate your sacral chakra. Girls, take notes.
Lymphatic Drainage: This is the quickest way to clear emotional blockages. All you need to do is massage your pelvic area—as this is where the lymph nodes are. When you brush the lymph nodes, with the intent of releasing blind emotions, they flow out along with the toxins.
Aromatherapy: Massaging your pelvic area with a blend of essential oils also helps in activating the sacral chakra. Bark or stem oils like cedarwood, sandalwood, cinnamon, ginger and rosewood, and certain other essential oils like jasmine, geranium, rosemary, cypress and rose, improve blood circulation, balance hormones, and release negative thoughts that help in activating the sacral chakra.
Bach Flower Remedies: Flower essences like rock water, crab apple, holly, willow, mustard and cherry plum have a significant effect on rigidity and pent up emotions.
Yoga: Asanas like seated forward bend (paschimottanasana), butterfly posture, child's pose and cat posture help open up the pelvic region and thereby activate the sacral chakra. You must hold each posture for about a minute and practice kapalbhati pranayama (quick, forceful exhalations) while holding the pose. These forced exhalations help release unwanted thoughts and emotions.
Crystals and Colours: Orange colour and crystals resonate with the sacral chakra. Therefore, wearing bright, tangy-hued clothes, makeup and crystals can help enhance your sacral chakra.
