This article provides all you need to know about your Sex Chakra. Read on to try our Sexual Chakra Meditation to balance your sexual chakras.
The Chakra system is made up of seven main energy centres that run along your spine. The two bottommost chakras – the Root Chakra and the Sacral Chakra – have much to do with sexual energy and connection with others. When you begin to work with the energy stored there, you will find youself being more connected to yourself and others. This helps in increasing your sexual drive and zest for life.
As well as these two, the other important Chakra to work on if you want to improve your sexual relationships is the Heart Chakra. The heart rules your emotional connection with others and it is important to keep the heart open in sexual interactions so that the giving and receiving energy can be felt.
Chakras and Sex
The three Chakras we will focus on here are Muladhara (Root Chakra), Svadisthana (Sacral Chakra) and Anahata (Heart Chakra).
The Root Chakra is represented by the color red, which is in itself a sensual color – think red dresses and red lipstick – the way you wear red can be used to increase your sexual flare. This Chakra also relates to your sense of belonging and connection with others, which is why it is important to know how to bring your Root Chakra into balance so that you can build stable and supportive relationships with others. When we are in balance in our Root, we feel whole, safe and worthy – three key ingredients to giving love to and receiving it from others.
The Sacral Chakra is the second Chakra located just beneath the naval in the pelvic area of your body. This Chakra directly relates to your sexual organs and how they function, hence the reason it is often called the ‘Sex Chakra.’ If you charge up your Sacral Chakra, you are also charging up your sexual drive, for it is an energy that wants to express itself. Expression is also a theme of the Sacral Chakra – How do you express your sexuality? This question is one that should be contemplated when working with Sacral Chakra healings.
The third Chakra to consider when improving your sex life is the Heart Chakra. This is the place where love can be given and received. Keeping this channel open during sex will allow for a deeper, heartfelt connection between you and your partner. One way to open the heart before sex is to place your hands on your partner’s heart and vice versa. Take three to five deep breaths together and tune into the heart energy of your partner. This helps you relax, connect and enjoy the experience about to unfold.
Sex Chakras And Its Blockages
As mentioned above, the Sacral Chakra rules the health of your sexual organs. When it is out of balance, you may experience a lack of sexual drive or desire. On the other hand, you may experience addictions as you constantly chase after sexual pleasure to fill the empty void. Health manifestations look differently for men and women. Let’s take a look at what this means:
Sacral Chakra Blockages in Men
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Premature ejaculation
- Groin infections
- Lower back pain
- Urinary issues
Sacral Chakra Blockages in Women
- Menstrual pain and irregularities
- Sexual dysfunction
- Sexually Transmitted Diseases
- Lower back pain
- Urinary tract infections
Though these conditions may affect your sexual chakras, you can always use the various healing tools and techniques to return your Chakra to balance and good health.
Sexual Chakra Meditation
There are many ways to meditate with the Sexual Chakra and these meditations can be done alone to charge up your sexual energy, or you can do them with a partner to share the experience together.
Find a comfortable place to recline and lay down on your back. Place your hands over your Sacral Chakra, located just below your navel.
Take a few deep breaths, drawing your breath into your sexual centre. With every nourishing breath, allow your body to relax and enjoy the experience. Let go of your expectations and be fully here in the moment. Just you and your body.
Now, imagine a snake curled up in this area of your body. The snake is coiled in on itself and is a bright, beautiful orange and red color. The snake is sleeping gently here, but with every breath you take, it begins to awaken. Every inhale down into your belly energizes this snake, the creature of creation, the giver of life.
Take ten expansive breaths here as you see this snake beginning to rise within you. Feel it start to lift its head and wrap around your spine. The beautiful creature is full of sexual energy and it is here within you to awaken your sexual powers.
Imagine this snake moving up your spine, bringing its divine sex energy with it as it rises. Feel awake in your sexual organs. Feel alive in this area. Feel this as it rises higher and higher, embracing your heart and bringing the passion into your chest now. As the snake rises, it releases sexual energy into your whole body. Take five more deep breaths here as you allow this energy to fill your body and mind with bliss.
Expand, breathe, and feel the pleasure of the snake dancing inside of you.
You may like to expand your arms or move your body. Do whatever feels right for you as you express this energy within you.
When you are ready, come back to your body and just notice how it feels after the journey with the snake.
Use this Sexual Chakra meditation whenever you need to reconnect with the divine sexual force that lives within you.
As you learn to empower your Sexual Chakra, you can share your experiences with your partner. Sexual chakra meditation aims to harness and balance this energy for physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits. Practicing sexual chakra meditation can help increase self-awareness, boost sexual energy, improve relationships, and promote overall well-being. However, it’s important to remember that this is a personal and intimate practice, and everyone’s experiences and interpretations may differ. It’s recommended to approach sexual chakra meditation with caution, respect, and openness and to seek guidance from a trusted source if necessary.
The meditation helps to heal and balance the Sacral and Root Chakra energy centres. The more you work with these areas, the stronger your sex drive will become and you will be able to share this passion with your partner.
