When you recognize and understand the issues, learning how to balance the overabundance of chakra energy is made easier.

Signs of Overactivity in the Sacral Chakra

Although signs of an overactive sacral chakra generally manifest in non-physical ways, physical symptoms can occur. For instance, you may experience a persistent sensation of warmth in your lower abdomen when energy flow through the chakra is excessive. An overactive sacral chakra can also significantly impact the function of the reproductive organs, bladder, and lower back. Among the most common physical ailments are:

  • cysts

  • urinary issues

  • kidney problems

  • lower back pain

  • gynecological problems

When your sacral chakra is overwhelmed, you yourself may feel overwhelmed. You may experience emotions more deeply than normal, have severe mood swings, or seemingly thrive on conflict and drama. Oftentimes, the excess of emotions can also lead to poor personal boundaries making you overly dependent on others or even obsessive.

Non-physical signs of an overactive sacral chakra can include:

  • anxiety

  • mania

  • aggressiveness

  • arrogance

Considering the sacral chakra influences sexuality, an overactive sacral energy center can contribute to promiscuity, sex addiction, and feelings of detachment or viewing others as mere objects to achieve sexual gratification.

Individuals with an overactive sacral chakra may also develop addiction to alcohol, drugs, or other unhealthy substances or engage in high-risk behaviors. Additional issues can include excessive eating and an unhealthy focus on one’s body image.

Cleansing an Overactive Sacral Chakra

Located in the lower abdomen, the sacral, or navel, chakra rules your ability to relate to the world around you. It governs your ability to interact with others and develop, nurture and maintain healthy relationships. Being mindful of making the right choices to curb unhealthy behaviors helps cleanse and heal the sacral chakra.

Because of its close association with the digestive system, adopting a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise might be particularly helpful in balancing the second chakra’s energy flow.

The chakra is aptly associated with the color orange, a hue representing energy, creativity, and pleasure. To balance an overactive sacral chakra, you may surround yourself with its opposite color, blue.

If, after making lifestyle changes, you still feel out-of-balance, consider incorporating other energy healing techniques, such as aromatherapy, yoga, meditation, or Tai Chi. Long-standing and severe energy imbalance can necessitate consulting with an energy healer to help restore balance and healing.
