The Chakra System is made up of seven spinning energy centres. They all care for different aspects of our physical, mental, and spiritual health. The first and second energy centres, chakras support your sex life.
The first chakra, the root support, is located at the base of the spine. It is the foundation of the human energy system and governs basic human needs around safety, security, survival and connection to the earth, it is also linked to your carnal desires. If you are out of balance at the root chakra it can result in fear and be difficult to open yourself up to intimacy. if this chakra is in balance we feel complete, whole, safe, worthy and connected. We fell connected to ourselves and each other and fell grounds and present in life. Going walking with bare feet can help balance this chakra. Connecting with nature, walking by the sea, a hike or long walk can help connect you to your root chakra and ground you. Grounding down makes us feel safe and less fearful, which opens us up to intimacy. A healthy and open root chakra is required for all sexual connections because of you are not feeling safe and secure, you will struggle to connect and to share our energies in a meaningful, healthy and connecting way.
The second chakra, the sacrel, is located at the lower abdomen, genitals, and womb. It’s connected to desire, pleasure, creativity, passion, money, intimacy, sexuality, and procreation. If you are out of balance it can lead to a cooling of sensuality and creates physical health conditions. Guilt can prevent a happy healthy sex life, especially if we link sex to shame, which can come from our childhood. Balancing of the Sacral Chakra allows us to improve our relationships with ourselves and others.
Often people can have a distorted sacral chakra as they consume media and images that tell us what sexy is and pornography which can replace a need for connection and intimacy with themselves or another. All types of trauma can also shut down this chakra and people can even suffer lower back pain, lower gastrointestinal problems, decrease in libido, lack of creativity and passion, addictive behaviours and isolative behaviour
To improve the sacrel chakra its best to ensure you live, work and play in a state of pleasure. This is not just sexual pleasure but all types such as eating favourite foods, yummy hot bath, massages, long walks, dancing and meeting friends. It is possible to rebalance the sacral chakra by forgiving yourself and others, and accepting yourself as a sexual being.
Both of these chakras are core energy centres for out sexuality, sensuality and sexual energy and therefore a fundamental part of any relationship with have with ourself or someone else.
