How to Unblock Sacral Chakra for Witches
As a witch, we know that the power of manifestation lies in within our energy centers. But, sometimes, when our emotions are blocked and we neglect our spiritual wellbeing, our chakras can become stagnant. This can lead us to feel creatively stifled, drained of passion, and disconnected from our intuition. One of the most important chakras for witches to focus on is the sacred sacral chakra, svadhisthana in Sanskrit. It's that delcious inner fire that we often yearn for, and is easily lost. This is a huge part of our life force (okay well I guess every chakra is!). Located just below the navel, this energy center is the source of your creativity, sexual energy, and emotional depth. In this blog, we'll dive into how to unblock your sacral chakra and ignite your inner fire.
How to Recognize and Release Blockages
The first step in unblocking your sacral chakra is to recognize any blockages that may be present. These can manifest in different ways, such as fear of intimacy, disconnection from your body (huge one for me), or creative stagnation. Take time to reflect on what emotions or behaviors you may be experiencing that stem from a blocked sacral chakra. Once you've identified them, work on releasing them through meditation, journaling, creative expression or depending on the gravity of the situation, therapy!
Embrace Your Sensuality
Your sacral chakra is closely tied to your sensuality, so embracing it can be a powerful way to unblock the energy center. This doesn't necessarily mean engaging in sexual activities (I mean hey, you do you...safely), but rather embracing your senses and sensuality in a way that feels authentic to you. Try taking a bath with essential oils (Jasmine and Geranium are great for the Sacral Chakra) dancing to music that makes you feel alive, or wearing clothing that makes you feel confident and sexy.
Connect with the Element of Water
The element of water is closely associated with the sacral chakra, as it symbolizes flow, fluidity, and emotion. Embracing water in your spiritual practice can be a powerful way to unblock your sacral chakra. Spend time near a body of water, take a swim, or incorporate water-based meditations such as visualizing being at the beach, or a lake with great detail: Envision the scenery in this meditation, including the sounds of nature, the waves, the breeze, even the weather, etc. The more detailed the better as it allows you to get deep into the meditation.
Explore Your Creative Side
Your sacral chakra is the root of your creativity, so exploring your creative side is an excellent way to unblock the energy center. This can take many forms, from painting to writing to cooking to gardening, or creating an art book of shadow. I love doing this because it's very fluid and fun! You don't have to be a professional artist to enjoy this. Find an activity that brings you joy and allows you to express yourself in a way that feels natural. Don't worry about the end result; focus on the process and the joy of creation.
Honor Your Emotions
Finally, one of the most important ways to unblock your sacral chakra is to honor your emotions (bleh). This energy center is all about emotion and feeling deeply, so suppressing or denying your emotions can be detrimental to your chakra's health. But again, we can't move on to working with the other chakras until each energy center is flowing properly. A good full moon release can help if you're hanging on to stagnant emotions, and let's be honest, a good cry will always do the trick. Truly though, I feel that now days we aren't good at this! We need to feel, we need to release because when we do, we can make so much more room to receive the good stuff. So, be sure to practice mindfulness and self-awareness, and allow yourself to feel all emotions without judgement or resistance. You got this.
