“Never apologize for showing your feelings. When you do, you apologize for the truth.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli
The second main chakra (Sacral Chakra) is located in the middle below the navel and above the pubic bone – in front of the body and in the area of the tail at the back. Let’s understand how to open Sacral Chakra. It rotates a little faster than the 1st chakra. When it is balanced and pure, the sacral chakra glows in a beautiful orange color with a lighter white core.
And when it is dirty, it has a rusty-brown tinge, like “burnt out”. The sacral chakra is the center of creativity, sexual energy and our desires. It connects us to the inner source of inspiration and allows us to feel the beauty around us.
How to Open Sacral Chakra
If your sacral chakra is open and balanced, you will discover your creative talents and gifts. The creator will appear in you. It controls the pleasure centers in our body and our ability to enjoy all walks of life. The sacral chakra is also associated with sexuality and sexual energy, which can be transformed into creativity.
It is the emotional center of our body, which is associated with our ability to be creative at all levels, as well as with our sensuality and emotionality. The emotions emanating from this chakra are more delicate and subtle. The best way to use them is through creative and sensual expressions.
Sacral chakra is a secret place. This is an inviolable area where the power of creation flourishes.

The sacral chakra, in addition to being the center of creativity and pure knowledge, is also the portal to sexuality and creativity, which can also transform sexual energy into creative energy.
In this energy center, people can spend most of their lives struggling to learn the lessons of these powerful energies. Because few people understand the deep mental and spiritual exchange that takes place when you engage in sexual intimacy.
Your second chakra serves as an opening through which the frequencies of your identity and those of your partner merge to remain creatively intertwined.
Mainly through sexual intimacy you take over the energy field of the other and if there is deception or if there is no love, it can literally exhaust you physically, emotionally and mentally. But if there is love and respect between you, you can soar with blissful emotions in the mysteries of the cosmos.
Everyone faces the challenge of learning how to honor sexual energy. In order for your second (sacral) chakra to fully open, you must respect your ability to bring life to the world and take responsibility for your sexual actions.
