The Sacral Chakra is the seat of our child within, who has been a victim of childhood trauma – our inner child.
The inner child is the womb of creativity, innocence, inspiration, confidence, self-esteem. The Sacral Chakra is the centre of creative inspiration.
Childhood has its own challenges, and if we go through much pain, we lock our inner child into the prison of the Sacral Chakra to protect them from the cruel, bad world. We lock our child-like innocence and playfulness and replace it by the mind, intellect and ego. We grow into adults with defence mechanisms.
This however, does not help us grow and evolve intout highest potential, because the basic ingredients of success are imprisoned. If you read biographies of the successful, you will notice a common thread that connects them – no matter how much the hardships they faced, they were in touch with their creative genius that made them take confident strides, no matter how touch it could get for them.
Every success story is written on the pages of hardships, difficulties, challenges, pain, fear, tears, loss; for they are all stepping stones to success and fulfilment. Yes, the inner child is wounded because of the world around them. Your inner child may have been a victim of sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family, physical pain, disease, or even the burden of other’s failure may have been your burden that weighed you down.
Along with your inner child you locked up you passion, hobbies, creativity and decided protecting yourself meant being enslaved by the confusions of the mind, judgements of the intellect, discriminations of the ego. You fed your inner child pain, anguish, hurt, sadness; thus, losing confidence and self-esteem.
Healing and balancing the Sacral Chakra is all about healing and befriending your inner child. A healthy and balanced Sacral Chakra is a confident, creatively inspired, spontaneous, happy-go-lucky, accepting self living every moment to the highest of their ability and potential.
You can do this too, if only you allow your inner-child to walk your path of purpose with you.
