BALANCE YOUR SACRAL CHAKRA USING THESE CRYSTALS....
Today we are going to discuss about the second chakra ,that means the sacral chakra, And what are the best possible ways to balance the sacral chakra using crystals. So let's find out more about the sacral chakra.
The second chakra, called Sacral chakra, is associated with the colour orange and is located at the lower belly and inner pelvis. The symbol of the sacral chakra is orange with six petals surrounding the centre. The circles in connection with the lotus flower petals represent the cycles of birth, death, and rebirth. The tangential circles also create a crescent moon shape, which reminds us of the connection between creativity and the phases of the moon. The colours and the symbols associated with the different energy centres are reflective of the vibration of the chakras. When the ancient rishis meditated on the energy of the chakras, these were the colours and symbols that arose in their mind’s eye.
This chakra is associated with sensuality and creativity. The primary function of this energy centre is pleasure and overall enjoyment of life. When this chakra is balanced and functioning properly, we can expect our relationship with ourselves and the world to feel harmonious, pleasure-ful, and nurturing.
The sacral chakra is associated with the element of water,. The water element is all about flow, flexibility and freedom of expression when it comes to emotions and sensuality. This energy centre, when balanced, offers direct access to flow, flexibility, and fun.
In working with this chakra, you will address your relationship with both others and yourself. Personally, you’ll discover you have unlimited creative power; you’ll learn how to cultivate a healthy relationship to pleasure; and you’ll gain insight into your default reactions and deepest emotions and learn how to sit with the depth of your feelings. You will more freely express your wants, needs, and emotions with others. You will also learn how to express yourself more skilfully and how to begin setting healthy boundaries.

How to balance the sacral chakra
Though the chakras can become blocked by certain habits and imbalances in the body, mind, and soul, we can bring these energy centres back into alignment with the right tools and care. There are some ways to balance your sacral chakra for optimal creativity, pleasure, and emotional expression:
1. Practice yoga postures that target the sacral area. Some of these poses include happy baby, goddess, and malasana. Or Do some hip-opening stretches or yoga postures.
If a chakra feels blocked, it usually means that stagnant energy is trapped there. So if you feel a block in the sacral, try to get moving with an emphasis on the hips and lower abs. hip-opening stretches, free-flowing dance, and the following butterfly pose (baddha konasana) can help you do so:
Begin in a seated position with the soles of the feet together.
Clasp your hands around your feet and gently bring your chest forward until you feel a slight stretch in your back.
Hold the position, inhale, and hold your breath for 30 seconds.
Exhale and repeat three times.
2. Take a soothing bath with essential oils.
3. Tap into your creative side.
4. Practice using affirmations.
When the sacral chakra is in healthy alignment, you will be able to source energy for creativity, movement, procreation, desire, pleasure, and relationships. You will be able to freely express your wants and needs in relationships, and pleasure will be a priority. Creativity and visualization will become easy for you to tap into when your sacral is aligned.
5. Go for foods that nourish the sacral chakra.
Speaking of orange, certain foods are thought to nourish certain chakras. And you guessed it—orange foods are the go-to for the sacral. "Choosing foods that are in alignment with the sacral is an easy way to help both your physical body and your energetic body balance the second chakra," you can eat the foods like
nuts and seeds
orange citrus fruits
hydrate with pure, filtered water infused with orange fruits (clementine, oranges, tangerines, golden raspberries, etc.)
6. Do a chakra-balancing meditation.
Chakra-balancing meditations can help you get quiet and tune into the energy centre that needs work. Holding a carnelian gemstone as you complete a meditative visualization picturing cutting the cord to whatever is blocking your sacral chakra: "Hold [the crystal] in your hands, close your eyes, and take three deep breaths. command this crystal to hold the intention of balancing your sacral chakra.' Lie comfortably on your back, and lay the crystal over your chakra for 11 minutes. While it's on your body, see the colour orange filling up all the space in your second chakra with healing, balanced light."
7. Get comfortable with stillness.
Because the sacral chakra deals with emotions and intimacy, an unbalanced sacral chakra can benefit from some stillness and mindfulness. Getting comfortable with stillness allows us to connect to our emotions and process them in a healthier way. Make a practice out of sitting still in a cross-legged pose for a few minutes every morning, just noticing the smells, feelings, and sensations of the present. Add another minute or so to your sit each week.
8. Get your feelings out on paper.
Lastly, journaling can help us connect to our emotions too. Take a pen to paper and consider questions such as:
Am I stimulating or fuelling my creative passions?
Am I happy with my sex life?
What am I currently creating or giving to the world?
What would feeling empowered in my creativity and sexuality look like?
9. Work with the colour orange.
Each of the seven chakras is associated with a different colour. The sacral chakra is orange, so it's a good idea to use this shade when doing any sacral chakra work. Tiger's eye or carnelian crystals, for example, are wonderful orange stones that can be incorporated into the chakra rituals that follow.
1. Red Carnelian
Carnelian is go-to crystal for Sacral Chakra healing. With its hues of an evening sunset, it soothes and opens the sacral chakra, balancing energy flows and encouraging confidence. This crystal was revered in Ancient History as a stone for fertility and had strong associations with the fertility goddess Aphrodite (Isis).And, as the Stone of Creativity, Motivation, Endurance, Leadership and Courage, you’d expect carnelian stones to have the power to get things moving. But what’s even more remarkable is its ability to boost passion, intuition and self-belief.
Carnelian’s warm joyful energy will revitalise and balance the important Sacral Chakra, helping you to move forward with renewed confidence.
2. Tiger’s Eye
Tiger’s eye is a stabilising and grounding crystal. It harnesses the earth’s and sun’s energies, making it a wonderful crystal for Sacral Chakra healing. The Svadhisthan sacral chakra is the gateway for life energies (chi) to flow from, which is important for the health and well-being of the rest of the body. Tiger’s eye balances and grounds this energy centre, allowing change, movement and creativity to spring from it.
Due to tiger’s eye’s polarising ability, which balances the yin-yang and the emotional body, it’s masterful for stabilising mood swings and releasing fears. It brings forth the tiger’s courage, and with it comes the confidence of self-knowledge and success. It encourages you to take a risk and explore your creative talents. Gut feelings, intuition and integrity all get a boost from tigers eye. It can even reduce food cravings, boost willpower and sharpen the senses. This is also a good crystal for stimulating the kundalini energy.
When you’re working on balancing and opening the Sacral Chakra, improved confidence, leadership qualities and enthusiasm are all part of the package. It’s an empowering experience – and sunstone’s energetic qualities align perfectly with these traits. Sunstone is a light, energising and joyful crystal that has a radiance for happiness. By restoring enjoyment of life, you can balance personal power, kindness and improved intuition, which are all part of the sacral chakras purpose. So, if you lack confidence, or are struggling to maintain your true personality around others, sunstone is one of the best Sacral Chakra crystals.
So how to use your Sacral Chakra Healing crystals
Chakra balancing is a lifelong journey that won't happen overnight. But these practices can help your sacral chakra support you on the path to abundance, fulfilment, and creativity.

This keeps them even closer to the Sacral Chakra than if worn in jewellery, and has the advantage of being easily accessible if you feel the need to have direct contact by touching them. Thumb stones are particularly good for this.
