The sacral chakra is the second chakra within each of our energy bodies.
This chakra is located within and radiates from the lower belly or womb space area of your body.
This energy center is all about our experience and expression of creativity, connection, and pleasure.
Each chakra is an expression of energy and has specific traits.
The sacral chakra is all about moving up from the activation and mastery of the root chakra ( earthly survival) towards exploring and embodying the pleasures and joys of being alive.
When this chakra is blocked, it contracts and does not receive or emit energy as intended.
This results in distortion of the chakras’ traits or functions.
When we have a blocked sacral chakra, we cannot experience enjoyment, creativity, and living to our fullest.
Health is our natural state of being. So if we become aware of our blocks, we can then choose to return to our natural state.
Within this article, we shall learn about the causes of a blocked sacral chakra.
We delve into the signs of a blocked sacral chakra to effectively and authentically learn so that we may take action to unblock and rebalance this vital energy center.
We will learn a few powerful techniques and spiritual technologies that help us heal this blockage to get the life force flowing within the sacral chakra again.
What Causes A Blocked Sacral Chakra?
One of the leading causes of a blocked sacral chakra is repression or suppression.
This is when your natural flow of energy has been in some way forcibly stopped or inhibited.
We live in a society that includes many dominant cultures and religions.
More often than not, take an obscured or shameful view of sacred sexual energy and teach strict conventions for how we relate and connect with other humans.
This repression can start from childhood and extend into adulthood until we conscientize, set boundaries and liberate ourselves from limiting belief systems that have been ingrained within us.
Because of this, many of us have thought that our pleasure, joy, creative energy, and sexual energy are somehow wrong, unnecessary, or dirty when the opposite is true.
This is actually the energy of infinite creation, life force, and creativity.
When we are not consciously conscious of this energy, and it is repressed, this can cause fear and aversion, leading to a blocked sacral chakra.
When we are repressed from our natural expressions and explorative nature, we can feel externally controlled or internalize these parameters for control and shame ourselves for our natural desires.
This all contributes to stagnation and blockage of the sacral energy center.
Another reason you may experience a blocked sacral chakra is that your energy is trapped in root chakra mode.
You may be in the stage of life where you are still too focused on working for survival and having your very basic needs met.
This can result in your energy being unable to move upward to this higher second energy center which governs enjoyment and pleasure.
You are still integrating and balancing your root chakra.
So you cannot fully move into the sacral chakra and achieve balance here until there is a foundation of a vital and nourished root chakra energy to push through.
9 Blocked Sacral Chakra Symptoms
In this article, our main aim is to identify the signs of a blocked sacral chakra.
This is so that you can choose to become more clear about where you are and can apply and embody appropriate action to grow and experience expansion, higher consciousness, and a more joyous spiritual human experience.
These are the general signs that you can apply intuitively to your understanding and current experience of yourself.
1. You are experiencing a creative block
Creative energy and creative expression is the substance of the sacral chakra.
When this chakra is blocked, you will probably feel stagnant and creatively blocked.
Whether you are a person who identifies explicitly as a creative being, such as an artist or dancer, or if you are a technically and logically inclined person, creativity still has a massive role in all areas of our life.
Creativity can allow us to embody our uniqueness through how we dress, speak, cook, play, work, and how we choose to move through life in the way that is most joyous and satisfying to our desired experience.
When you feel out of touch and apathetic to creating joyful experiences for yourself, you are likely experiencing a creative block and a sacral chakra block.
2. You feel little desire or struggle to experience pleasure, sexuality and sensuality
When your sacral chakra is blocked, you likely feel unmotivated, lacking, or ashamed to express your sensual and sexual energy.
You may experience low libido and disconnection from your sensuality and bodily pleasure.
Disconnection from the joys of having a body and the sensory pleasures are an innate part of human desire.
When you feel unsatisfied and lack energy or fear exploring and expressing your authentic desires and sensuality, this could indicate sacral chakra blockage.
3. You feel isolated and lonely
The balance and energy of our sacral chakra can influence how we experience our relationship with ourselves and those around us.
When this chakra is in balance, we have healthy and joyous relationships with others because we are at ease with ourselves and have accepted ourselves.
When we are clear about our needs and desires, we can feel innately safe to connect with others, and so when this energy center is blocked, it can manifest as difficulty in our connection and relationships with those around us.
This can leave us feeling disconnected from ourselves and the world, which can lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness.
4. You may experience reproductive health issues
The sacral chakra is energetically linked to our physical reproductive organs.
When this chakra is blocked, it can be one of the reasons that you experience reproductive health issues.
Issues that may be experienced are not limited to but can include infertility and hormonal imbalances.
5. You don’t seem to enjoy daily life very much
The sacral chakra is the chakra that aligns our energy, perspective, and desire to enjoy life to the fullest.
It is from this energy center that we prioritize and manifest joyous experiences.
When this chakra is in balance, we feel worthy of pleasure and quickly manifest our desires.
When this center is blocked, we can lack energy and enthusiasm, and so we can become cut off from this sacral creative force.
This can cause you to eventually become disconnected from noticing and creating the joys of being alive.
6. You feel disconnected from your body and senses
The sacral chakra impacts your capacity to enjoy the pleasure of having a human body; sensuality, sexuality, and sensory pleasures.
We can use our bodies to experience and create pleasure.
When the sacral chakra has blocked this awareness and consciousness of our body, temples are not present.
We become disconnected from enjoying our senses and our bodies’ amazing potential.
Intuitive movement, dance, creating art with the body, adorning the body, enjoying amazing tastes, smells, sounds and feelings will be lacking in your experience when this chakra is blocked.
7. You feel estranged from your instincts
Instinct can be understood as our most natural and intuitively responsive way of behaving.
Instincts are our innate guiding force that is the truest compass of our unique journey.
How we react or respond to life is how we define life, and so this is a really important sense.
The clarity and connection to our instincts are encompassed within our sacral chakra.
When this chakra is blocked, it can leave you feeling really disconnected from your instinctive nature.
When your sacral chakra is blocked, you may become unsure, distrustful, and forget about this powerful guiding force.
8. You can become disconnected from the power of your emotions
This is a chakra that generates a lot of emotional energy, and it is all about feeling and sensation.
Emotions are the guidance system that helps us to identify our desires and pleasures.
They allow us to enjoy experiences more fully as we attach emotional value to what we find desirable.
We know that harnessing our emotions is a vital element of successful manifestation.
When we are blocked within the sacral space, we can really struggle to create.
We may generate frustration from feelings such as being ‘stuck ‘or ‘dry’ associated with this chakra blockage.
When this chakra is imbalanced, we become disconnected from our ability to harness and generate our emotions with intention and presence to create the joyful life that we desire and fully deserve.
9. You may struggle to commit to self-love and self-care practices
The foundation of relating and connection with anything ‘outside’ of ourselves is a thriving relationship and deep connection with yourself.
When the sacral chakra is blocked, you likely have some difficulty consistently taking care of yourself.
You may struggle to initiate or stick to the practices that you know align and energize you.
A blocked sacral chakra limits our experience of the energy of self-appreciation and self-worth.
When this chakra is revitalized, we can tangibly experience just how deserving we are.

Unblocking And Rebalancing A Blocked Sacral Chakra
If you honestly checked in with yourself after reading the blocked sacral chakra signs above, you probably would love to learn how to take better care of yourself and implement some powerful healing practices that will unblock, realign, and maintain the sacral chakra.
These are some ideas of the practices you can work with to unblock your sacral chakra :
You can partake in good feeling physical activity which activates your body and flow states such as yoga, intuitive stretching, dancing, and exercise.
Such movement helps you to become comfortable and appreciative of your physical body.
You can express your creativity in movement and experience intuitive flow states as exercise activates your sacral chakra.
Time spent in nature
The sacral chakra is nourished by spending time fully present earthing, observing, and meditating within nature.
The abundant and beautiful energy of the earth’s elements can also help you appreciate the beauty and joys of life.
Immersing yourself in flowing and growing elements can teach so much about the natural cycles of creation that are innate codes within an aligned sacral chakra.
Dedicate to self-love
Intentionally commit to your self-love practices and make an effort to do the things that you enjoy unashamedly.
Doing these things will nourish your sacral chakra and allow you to have a healthy and enjoyed relationship with yourself, leading to a more beneficial relationship with the world.
Embracing your sacred sexuality
You can explore what sensuality and sexuality mean to you by introspecting on what you’ve been taught, re-evaluating, and then permitting yourself to explore in the ways that you truly desire.
This can help to get your sacral chakra energy active and flowing.
Explore your creativity
You can create and expose yourself to inspiring creation.
Even if you feel stuck, choose to intentionally set some time aside for experimenting with creative mediums ( including but not limited to art, music, cooking, dancing, gardening, and decorating ).
You can also intentionally surround yourself with the work of the creatives that you are naturally attracted to.
Appreciating their creativity can inspire creativity and activate your creative energy.
The sacral chakra is a chakra that can be unblocked quite easily with just a little dedication to beneficial and usually fun practices.
You will likely find that your practices actually turn into an integral and joyful part of your day, and they will come naturally as part of living life from an open sacral chakra.
You can choose to turn a blockage into an empowering opportunity for intentional embodiment and expansion.
You can choose to heal, activate and rebalance.
An open and balanced sacral chakra will allow you access to your innate power to create the life you desire and accept and enjoy the benefits of the experiences that are part of your way.
