Inhibited Expression – Sacral Chakra

The need for balance and harmony is imperative in this chakra as this chakra is responsible for how we express ourselves. All of our creativity, passion, inspired ideas, sexuality, appetite, goals, ambitions, and healthy relationships are born right here in the lower abdomen. If this chakra is not cleansed or balanced then we risk having all of these aspects of our lives thrown into turmoil.

We stand to lose our creative muses making our paintings less vibrant and our voices less song-like. Our care for the important things in life disappears and the goals we have held on to since childhood dissipates. We begin to take those of importance in our life for granted and abandon all the responsibilities that we once took pride in. We begin to feel self-conscious inhibiting us from freely expressing ourselves physical and sexually and slowly, but surely our outside world falls apart as the very essence of our beings suffers.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of symptoms you may feel if your root chakra is blocked:

  • Loss of creativity
  • Apathy 
  • Lack of ambition
  • Loss of libido
  • Increased or decreased appetite
  • Low self-esteem

Affirmation:

I create and express with ease.

The Importance of Being Grounded – Root Chakra

Being grounded is all about having control over your own energy and having the ability to choose how much of it you wish to share. More importantly, being grounded gives you the ability to lessen your sensitivity to the energy around you, be it people or even electronics.

The root chakra keeps you grounded. When you are grounded you are able to formulate cohesive thoughts and do not risk being scattered or having your head stuck up in the clouds. Grounded energy also leads to better sleep patterns and reduces the likelihood of experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression.  When you are grounded, you are in control of your own energy, and have the ability to block energy that does not belong to you. It is harder to push the buttons of a grounded person and get a reaction out of them, because you cannot manipulate energy that you do not have access to.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of symptoms you may feel if your root chakra is blocked:

  • You feel shaky
  • You feel wobbly or unsteady on your feet
  • You can’t help but daydream often or at the wrong times
  • You feel lightheaded
  • You feel scattered-brain
  • You have a hard time finishing your sentences
  • You keep forgetting what you were doing when you walk into another room
  • You are feeling irritable, agitated, or moody
  • When in large crowds you feel overwhelmed

Affirmation:

I bring my energy back into my body. I do not entertain that which does not belong to me. I am grounded.
