Your Second Chakra – What it Means


They say your second chakra is all about creativity. This includes anything and everything you create in your life:  your sexual experiences, an invention, a project, service to others, and anything else you think up.

Have you ever thought a thought and didn’t know where it came from?  Chances are that whack on the side of the head idea had a second chakra boost.

My own personal opinion is that your sacral chakra is involved in everything you do in life.

Are you interested in co-creating?  To hone those co-creating skills, go right to your second chakra.

Even if you aren’t interested in co-creating, include your second chakra in every project you embark.

To bring more excitement and fun in your life, start with a list.

Include experiences in your life which bring you pleasure, offer fun, increase your endorphins, or make you smile.

Expand your list.  Include something every day.

Your goal is to increase your creativity.  You want to empower yourself to feel inspired and more alive!

Make no mistake, second chakra work includes your soul.

First chakra issues have a tendency to encourage a person to isolate or even go inward.  A first chakra goal is to learn to live with oneself.

Second chakra issues Include others in your journey.  Second chakra issues cause us to make our lives with others.  Second chakras communicate with other chakras.

The ultimate example of this is the process of giving birth to and raising a child or children.

While birth is considered a feminine event, the second chakra is about creating things from our hips or second chakra.  This applies to everyone.

Second chakra imbalances can manifest themselves as blocks which last for years.

If you experience a writer’s block,  have reproductive issues, or have problems with your career development, include sacral chakra therapy in the healing process.

Include extra reflexology, Reiki therapy, and chakra healing sessions.

Any issues involving your genitals, reproductive organs, pelvis, hips, or lower vertebrae, appendix and upper intestines, are affected by sacral blocks and imbalances.

Your second chakra will respond to essential oils such as

ylang ylang, rose, lemon.

Crystals include carnelian, amber, tangerine quartz.

A Sacred Second Chakra Meditation: Inner Peace, Security, and Self-Acceptance

This meditation is ideal for relaxation because it supports inner peace, security, and self-acceptance.

Relax and get comfortable in a calm location where you will not be disturbed for a few moments.

Take several slow, deep breaths.

With each inhale, imagine your breath energizing the area two inches below your navel.  Gently massage this point with two fingers.

With each exhale, imagine a small orange ball carrying fears, stress, and pain away.

Now, inhale deeply twice.  Breathe into a point about two inches below your navel.  Release this breath through your mouth.

Imagine you are lying on a beautiful, quiet boat which is just big enough for you.  There is no room for anyone or anything but yourself.

While you are lying on this boat in the middle of a beautiful pond, things are still and peaceful.  The pond has many flowers along the beach.   As you focus on them, you see they are various shades of orange,  and coral.

Let your body become heavy and relaxed as you get more comfortable on this tiny boat.

You feel the space, the peace, stillness.  Breathe into the stillness and the abundance of the flowers and the water in the pond.

The overhead sky has a warm, glowing light allowing you to feel beauty, peace, energy.

A gentle breeze moves your small boat along the edge of the pond into a gently flowing stream.. As you look above, you see billowing clouds with a faint orange and gold tint. They move lazily overhead.

The flowers and clouds protect you so you feel safe.

You feel warm and at peace.

Breathe into the peace and gentle energy of just being yourself.  Drifting down the stream, you relax even more and appreciate  the energy, the peace, the flowers and the clouds.

You realize you don’t have to do anything, just breathe and enjoy yourself.  As your boat gently drifts along, you feel warm.  This warmth is healing.  You feel quiet, peaceful.  You breathe in peace, health, relaxation.

As you breathe out, exhale anything you want to release.

It’s time to return to your body and become conscious of yourself.  Gently you move your fingers and toes to become more aware of returning to your location.

When you open your eyes, you remember the peace and energy you felt in the orange flowers and the orange-tinged clouds.

You know you can return to this place any time you want.

When you are ready, continue on with your activities.

8 Ways to Heal Your Chakras


When you balance your chakras, you change your physical self.  This happens because your chakras affect all levels of your body – physical, psychological, and spiritual.

Balanced chakras facilitate homeostasis. A chakra  adjustment boosts healing and recovery from illness, emotional wounds, negative lifestyles and other physical and mental issues.


Wherever you are on your healing path, your foundation is your intention to heal, which guides your journey.

Keep it close throughout your travels because healing can often reach into your past.  Your health issues may have begun years, decades, even lifetimes ago.

Write your intention.  Meditate on your intention.  Stay with your intention.  It  leads your energy, telling it what to do.

Your intention has a second task:  it converts your healing goals into your new normal,  maintaining your good health and your spiritual wholeness.

Without this second task focusing on your good health goals, your body may revert to its previous state.

Your goal is to make strong and durable changes so you can become your new normal self.

This may be scary stuff.  After all, it’s much easier to “keep on keeping on”.

If you really seek healing, change the things you do.


The sense of smell is primal.

When you focus on grounding and safety,  aromatherapy is a good choice because these qualities rely on the sense of smell.  This is especially important for health issues affecting your root chakra.

Aromas work on the unconscious self and the physical body.

Smells have a frequency which reaches far back in time to heal  your chakras and energetic fields.

Smells reveal memories traveling instantly from the past – beyond this life even.

This time travel can balance chakras.  Essential oils can focus on a specific chakra.

I’ve listed various essential oils in previous blog posts.  I’ve also listed them in all editions of “Healer’s Handbook”.

If you want to own the fewest number of essential oils possible, lavender can be a good first choice.

Good essential oils for the root chakra include wood-related oils:  sandalwood, rosewood.

If you want to use essential oils to promote healing and balance, select only a few for the chakra you are focusing on.  Buy the best  quality, therapeutic grade oils you can find.  Store them in glass in a cool, dark place.

Once you select an essential oil, learn to use that particular oil.  Depending on the oil you choose, you may dilute it and then apply it topically.

You may also use the essential oil aromatically.

Finally, you may decide to ingest it.

However you decide to use the essential oil, learn the best way to use it before you begin your treatment.


Sound affects us all deeply and instantly.  Sound is powerful because it changes our vibration.  Going straight to our deepest core, sound alters vibrations of illness and disease.

When using sound to heal, choose those sounds which touch your heart,  your chakras and emotions.

You may decide to engage in formal sound healing sessions.  Or you may simply choose to pay more attention to the sounds in your life. What sounds  promote healing, calming, or balancing?  Which ones are disruptive and damaging?

Don’t underestimate the power of healing music.


A mantra is a word which is repeated for healing purposes.

Om is a universal mantra. The vibration of the repeated word is the power in the mantra.  Vibration, not the word itself, is the power in the singing bowls, tuning forks, chants, and mantras.

It’s not necessary to know the literal meaning of a word for it to work as a mantra.

Tools that create notes for chakra healing include Gregorian Chants, singing bowls, and tuning forks designed to heal chakras.

Singing bowls and tuning forks resonate to the energy of specific chakras.  Any word or sound carrying a positive resonance has a powerful, therapeutic effect.

Silence can be powerfully calming and healing.  If you are attracted to the vibration of silence, try to practice it a few minutes each day.


Yoga poses have been used for ages to boost and balance your chakras. The poses strengthen and stabilize your body.  They also activate your chakras.

Yoga poses open, strengthen, and balance different chakras based on their location.  There are many different yoga poses, each anatomically related to different chakras.


For me, crystals and stones live.  Each has a unique vibration which  communicates with our energetic fields.  This communication has the capacity to bring harmony and balance.

The best way to select a crystal or stone is to trust your body’s response.  When you hold a particular stone in your hand or place it on a chakra, how does it feel to you?  Does it feel bad?  Are you positively attracted to it?

If the response is good, you may be on the right track.

Selecting the crystal and gemstones is a personal decision.  It’s hard for someone else to choose your stone.

A good way is to select a stone in the same color as the chakra you’re trying to balance.

For example, if you are seeking a stone to balance your root chakra, choose from red stones because that chakra’s  color resonates with red.

Occasionally, a stone will call out to you.  This happened to me  recently.  Black tourmaline presented itself to me, uninvited.  I saw evidence of this stone everywhere I went.

When I opened books, a picture of this stone would be on the opened page.

When a colleague asked me about stones, she wanted information about black tourmaline.

I visited a tarot store in Great Barrington – and there sat a dish of them, right at eye level.

I simply couldn’t avoid them.

So, I finally gave in!

I bought a stone and silver chain at the Mower’s Meadow Flea Market from a booth there.

I’ve been wearing the black tourmaline for over a week now and I feel totally different than I felt a week ago.

I held out as long as I could and when I finally did what I should have done in the beginning – I felt good.



Meditations balance and heal on several different levels.

For me, meditations work because energy follows intent.  A guided meditation allows you to focus on your intentions in a relaxed state.

If you are looking to find a guided meditation suitable for your chakra balancing, maybe I can suggest a starting point for you. I’ve used several books for years.  Larry Moen wrote my three favorite books:  “Meditations for Awakening”, “Meditations for Healing”, “Meditations for Transformation”.

I’ve worn out several copies of these books and shared others.

I’ve also written some guided meditations.  You can find them in earlier posts of this blog.


Both reflexology and Reiki therapy balance your chakras.  I wrote about this in my book:  “Healer’s Handbook”.

When my chakras need attention, I always turn to reflexology and Reiki first.

While I definitely embrace different healing methods to balance my chakras, I refer to reflexology first.

A reflexology session is my first stop.
