The Sacral Chakra is located in the lower abdomen/pelvis area and it guides our emotions, sexuality, and creativity. When this chakra is in balance, we can experience creative flow, feelings of abundance, and being deserving of a good life. When imbalanced, we might be unwilling to change, have anxiety, chronic tension, or lower body pain, overall interfering with enjoying life. The Root Chakra's energetic baggage can affect the Sacral Chakra by preventing us from feeling safe enough to experience joy.
