In this article we will discover the symptoms associated with the sacral chakra and how to achieve its balance to free us from the diseases linked to its malfunction.
The chakras are centers that regulate the flow of our vital energy, directly influencing the health of organs and tissues. Our body, manifesting itself as small vortices of energy that feed all the functions of our body, generating thoughts, emotions and attitudes themselves.
When their movements are harmonious and balanced, they maintain the essential flow of energy and preserve our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
The Sacral Chakra is located about four centimeters below the navel and between the spines of the 2e and 3and lumbar vertebrae.
The energy that flows through the sacral chakra makes us feel full of energy and confidence. When balanced, it promotes sensuality, creativity and healthy emotions.
It is associated with personal relationships. It allows us to create a healthy intimate relationship.
The sacral chakra is related to the element water then to organic fluids (intra and extra cellular, intravascular or blood plasma, interstitial, transcellular, cerebrospinal, synovial and aqueous humor).
Water is the origin of life as we know it on this planet. A planet that despite being called Earth is blue and its biosphere, like us, is mainly water. The element of water is the root of Yin and Yang.
Life originated in water, just as water encloses the original duality. It can be steam or ice, calm or tempest, stillness or fullness of movement, creation or violent destruction.
The water element reflects in itself the basis of Yin and Yang, as well as the delicate balance between them, symbolizes, the germ, the seed, the essence, the root.
In relation to the earth element, it generates the state and sensation of rooting. Water is the origin, the memory, the ancestors, the family and the inheritance of the past.
It is the most Yin season of the year, the coldest and darkest.
When winter comes, everything freezes. It seems that the whole process of life stops. The energy of nature is withdrawn: plants look dead, animals hibernate; everything is calm until the rebirth of spring.
Yin energy is characterized by stillness and internal processes. States in which on the outside we find rest and inaction, but on the inside there are subtle and complex processes of rebirth.
When water flows at the right temperature, it is creative and spontaneous. It finds its way, it adapts to all forms, to all terrains, with determination and recklessness. This is how our will in life guides us, with perseverance and confidence.
When faith is interrupted, doubt arises and fear erupts, which stops our action. Fear immobilizes us. We are “frozen”, consuming a lot of energy but unable to do anything.
The opposite end of the freeze, blocking, and inaction response of fear is instinctive, hasty action. It can take two forms: flight or confrontation.
The lack or excess of fear reflects a lack or fullness of the water element. Carelessness, phobia, restlessness are signs of an imbalance of the water element.
Reflection can contain that fear and transmute it into another, more fluid state. To do this, reflection must be given its proper measure, without locking itself in repetitive circles of thoughts, exiled in the past or anticipating an uncertain future.
Then we can turn fear into attention. This is how we prepare ourselves to face the situations we fear, coming out of the vicious triangle of fear, confrontation or flight. This mode of constant attention finally makes us feel able to face the challenges of each day, fear disappears and confidence is strengthened.
The opposite of fear is trust and security. The flowing water advances inexorably by the force of its will. It is flexible enough to cross anywhere. At the same time, it symbolizes perseverance and sweetness, overcomes all obstacles in its way.
The water element gives us the ability to adapt to all the circumstances and cycles of nature. This is why an imbalance of this element can prevent us from letting go and relaxing.
Authoritarianism, imposition, inflexibility, fear of change and the need for control are some manifestations of the imbalance of the water element. Problems affecting these organs always suggest an imbalance of energy in the kidneys.
