There are many ways to energize and bring balance to the Sacral Chakra. Here are some suggestions:
Incorporate water: Spend time by the ocean, a lake, or river. Taking walks by the water or sit with it in view. Go wading or swimming. Being near open water in the moonlight is especially energizing for this chakra. Take long relaxing baths and try using some essential oils listed below. Also, drink more water.
Surround yourself with beauty: Visit beautiful gardens or buy yourself flowers. Visit art galleries. Decorate your home with beauty. Use colors that make you happy. Listen to music that you love. Give yourself time to savor beauty each time you encounter it.
Explore Your Creative Side: Bring out a forgotten hobby or start something new. Take a class on something that interests you. Try cooking or painting.
Movement: Try dancing, moving in flowing motion. Don’t be afraid to show your sensual side with it. Try the hoola-hoop to move and energize the hip area.
Make a change: Shake things up. Drive a different route. Take a spur of the moment vacation. Apply for a different job, try a different hair style. Use your imagination. Be spontaneous!
Incorporate the Color Orange: Wear orange colored clothing (any shade). Place orange accent colors throughout your space. Display oranges. Let the color remind you that you are balancing your Sacral Chakra. Eat orange foods like oranges and carrots.
Indulge in Sensual Pleasures...
“Female sexual pleasure, rightly understood, is not just about sexuality, or just about pleasure. It serves also, as a medium of female self-knowledge and hopefulness; female creativity and courage; female focus and initiative; female bliss and transcendence; and as a medium of sensibility, that feels very much like freedom.”– Naomi Wolf
Embrace Your Right to Feel...
“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.” ~Carol Welch

Try Mudra hand positions for meditation...
This hand gesture promotes energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy. The circling of energy created when the thumbs of the two hands touch promotes a cleansing of impurities. It represents an empty chalice or bowl symbolic of emptying yourself to be filled with light and positive energy. Place hands in your lap, palms up, one hand op top of the other, and let the thumbs touch. It is said to have astrong impact on the efficiency of the Sacral Chakra.
