The sacral chakra, the energy center of relationships and sexuality, can be a challenging one for many of us. In this article we are going to answer the question: Which deities should you summon when working on sacral chakra blockage.
The sacral chakra is all about creativity, sexuality, and emotions, and having blockages will manifest in those areas of life. When a person’s sacral chakra is closed, they often have a hard time finding romantic or sexual partners. Feelings of creative blocks as well as being unemotional are also indications of a sacral chakra blockage.
When gently working to open these blockages, you can call upon deities to guide and support you in the process.

How do I Unblock My Second Chakra?
Opening the sacral chakra is about feeling pleasure. Physical intimacy and sexual release are the greatest pleasure the body can have, and keeps us in touch with our wholeness including the lower chakra phenomenon that are occurring in our bodies.
The chakra system came out of the Tantric philosophy, which was a reaction to the ascetic ideals that came from the Yoga Sutras, and were prominent at the time.
Tantra teaches that the body is sacred and that through our senses we experience ecstasy and enlightenment.
In addition to experiencing healthy pleasure, working with meditation, essential oils, incense, and healing crystals can help to remove sacral chakra blockages.
It is recommended to move slowly and gently when opening or closing your chakras.

What happens When the Sacral Chakra Opens?
As humans we naturally avoid pain and seek pleasure. Pleasure can easily be overindulged in, but when approached in a healthy manner, it fulfills and enriches us. Just as we are cautious not to overindulge, care must also be taken to not partake enough.
Pleasure is processed by a part of the brain called the limbic system, which controls the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus controls hormones and the autonomic nervous system, including heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. Experiencing pleasure soothes and regulates the processes of the hormonal and autonomic systems.
Pleasure invites us to expand, while pain generally makes us contract. Through pleasure we can relax, allowing the processes of the body to flow freely without suppression. Pleasure is about tuning in to our senses. Absence of tension in the body creates harmonic flow. As our sacral chakra opens, we experience greater ease and flow, increased creativity, radiate more attractiveness, and attract the right relationships into our life.
The Second Chakra is About Movement and Change
Movement and emotions are inter-related, as we restrict movement in our body in an attempt to not feel emotions, and by moving we can free emotions and chronic tension in the body. Emotions are complex instinctual reactions to pleasure and pain.
Culture either represses or exploits pleasure. Our need for pleasure is expressed in negative ways such as a drug and alcohol abuse, and pornography addiction.
In yoga philosophy. Bindu is the dimensionless point of focus that makes up matter, and corresponds to semen. It is said that one hundred drops of bindu can be distilled into one drop of ojas, or divine consciousness. In many yogic or mystical disciplines celibacy is prescribed in order to transform bindu into ojas.
In ancient India as animal sacrifices became practiced to ensure larger crops and animals, ascetic movements began in reaction to this. For example, the Jains founded a system which believed in never killing anything, not even vegetables. Some even renounced clothing in becoming free of karma and obtaining liberation.
Others believed that by abstaining from the pleasures of the exterior world, the lifeforce within them becomes stronger.
Images of sexuality are seen throughout Hindu mythology. The Shiva Lingam, the phallus of Shiva is worshipped and appears throughout India. Krishna is known for his many romantic encounters. Shiva and Shakti are frequently depicted as making love.
Pleasure causes desire, and desire leads to movement.
Celibacy and the Sacral Chakra
As part of a spiritual practice celibacy can produce powerful results in the right circumstances. The energy previously expended upon sexual activity will find a new avenue of expression, often travelling up sushumna to the higher energy centers.
Celibacy can also have negative consequences, as a person’s life force may drop as a result. Also not experiencing pleasure or a relationship means they miss out on the expansive evolutionary opportunities that they allow. Celibacy can enforce separateness, whereas a relationship is a way of dissolving boundaries.
