Sacral Chakra Meditation (+ Guided Meditation)

Sacral Chakra Meditation (+ Guided Meditation)

Feeling uninspired, indifferent, or emotionally blocked? It may be time to connect with your Sacral Chakra.

Your Sacral Chakra is the center for creativity, relationships, and your ability to embrace change.

When balanced, it provides a wellspring of joy, passion, and self-knowledge, but it can become blocked and imbalanced which is where chakra healing techniques like meditation come in. 

In this article we explore Sacral Chakra meditation techniques to align this energy center, as well as a sacral chakra meditation video and script that you can follow at home. 

What Is the Sacral Chakra?

The Sacral Chakra, also known as the Svadhisthana Chakra, is the second main energy center located in our subtle body. The name Svadhishthana Chakra means “dwelling place of the self” in Sanskrit.

The Sacral Chakra is located in the lower abdomen, above the Root Chakra and is connected to the color orange. 

This chakra governs our relationship with change, and it’s the home of our deepest desires, creative potential, and the ability to cultivate joy.

It represents your sexual energy, creativity, and nurturing abundance in our lives. It relates to improving our mental, emotional, and physical flexibility.

When this chakra is balanced, we can embrace change fearlessly rather than clinging to past expectations. This helps us to accept the natural fluidity of life and relax into the present moment.

This allows us to fully appreciate those around us, enhancing our intimate relationships and overall well-being.

How to Do Sacral Chakra Meditation (Checklist)

Balancing the Sacral Chakra through meditation requires some preparation. That’s why we’ve created a simple checklist which you can follow at home to get started.

Follow these instructions in your next practice to get the best results:

  • Set aside 10-20 minutes for your meditation session. This is to give yourself enough time to go deep without overextending as a beginner.
  • Get into a comfortable seated position, either on a cushion or chair.
  • Keep your spine upright, shoulders relaxed, and hands resting on your knees or lap.
  • Take slow, deep breaths. As you inhale, feel your abdomen expand, and as you exhale, let it fall.
  • Try breathing in for 3 seconds, holding for 4, and exhaling for 5 to induce a calm state.
  • Visualize a golden energy or orange light at the seat of your Sacral Chakra below the navel. Imagine this ball of light growing brighter and dissolving any energetic blockages with each breath. Envisioning the orange color enhances creativity and sensuality.
  • End your meditation with positive Sacral Chakra affirmations (more on that below…)
