36 Sacral Chakra Affirmations & How to Use Them
If you’re looking to access your sexual energy then you’re in the right place. The sacral chakra is responsible for storing emotion related to sexuality and creativity. Sacral chakra affirmations are a powerful tool that will help to heal and unblock the sacral chakra. If you are attempting to open all 7 chakras, we advise that you start with the first chakra, the root chakra then move on to the sacral chakra. What we’ll cover:
What is the Sacral Chakra?
The sacral chakra is the second chakra and is linked to sexuality, pleasure, creativity and intimacy. It’s located below the naval and is central to expressing openness and passion. It resonates at the solfeggio frequency of 417hz, listening to this frequency while you recite your affirmations or meditate can be a helpful tool in unblocking this chakra.
Signs of a healthy sacral chakra are comfort in your sexuality and a general passion for life. If you're someone who has a healthy sacral chakra you would enjoy a balance sex life, a healthy relationship with your body, ease with intimate relationships and feel creatively abundant.
Signs of a Blocked Sacral Chakra
If your sacral chakra is blocked you may experience issues relating to your sexual and creative drive. Generally, you’ll be either over or under stimulated and struggling to create balance in these areas. Signs of a blocked chakra can be;
- Lack of sex drive
- Overactive sex drive
- Sexual repression or shame
- Codependent relationships
- Emotional isolation or repression
- Disconnection from yourself or others
- Lack of creativity
- Feeling passionless
- Controlling or aggressive behaviour
You could potentially be experiencing one or many of these symptoms. Each of them are blockages stored in the sacral chakra. Practicing affirmations will help to unearth the issues stored in the body and the subconscious mind, to help you heal theses problems
Why Should I Practice Affirmations?
Affirmations are a powerful way to reprogram the subconscious mind. Our brains are on a constant loop, thinking around 90% of the same thoughts today as we did yesterday.
Many of the emotional issues that are stored in the body were first developed in your formative years between the ages of 0-7.
During these years the two hemispheres of our brain are firing, as we absorb all of the conditioning from our families, friends, schooling and society like a sponge. For example, Person A grew up with a strict family who often spoke negatively about sexuality.
They constantly heard that sex was bad and that men and women need to behave in a certain way. Although Person A doesn’t believe these things as an adult, they still subconsciously feel insecurity, guilt and shame about their sexual desires. This would be a sign of a subconscious blockage of the sacral chakra. Using affirmations can help to release these subconscious blockages and create new neural pathways for the subconscious mind.
How to Recite Sacral Chakra Affirmations
Although you may have heard that affirmations are just using repetitive words and phrases, it’s much more than that. You can’t simply say the words “I embrace my sexuality” and expect yourself to suddenly do so.
The law of attraction states that “like attracts like” so if you’re someone who feels shame around your sexuality then you’re not meeting the emotional frequency of sexual expression.
Your feelings of shame will only attract more feelings of shame. In order for the subconscious mind to truly believe your affirmation you need to match your energy to the vibrational frequency of the words.
Not only should you say “I embrace my sexuality”, you should feel it as deeply as you can, imagine how you’d feel if these words were true; who are you, what are you doing, how are you expressing yourself if this was the truth? This will help to activate the sacral chakra and send new signals to the subconscious mind.
You can practice these affirmations during meditation, yoga or breathwork exercises. Say them in front of the mirror as you look at yourself. Write them down in a journal or place them on a wall where you can see them everyday. For a powerful affirmation experience we recommend to recite your affirmations as follows:
- Find some time to be alone in a quiet space
- Sit or lay down ensuring your spine is straight
- Take some slow deep breaths to ground yourself
- In through the those, into the belly, then the chest and out through your mouth like you’re blowing out a candle
- Repeat 3 Times
Now that your mind is clear, it’s time to start reciting your affirmations
- Close your eyes
- Focus your attention on the area below the naval
- Say the affirmation in your head or out loud “I embrace my sexuality”
- Feel those words deeply, as if they’re already true (this will be challenging in the beginning, but you’ll get better)
- Repeat the affirmation 3 times
The more you practice this technique the better at it you will get. The important thing to remember is to try to feel the truth of the affirmation as deeply as you can to vibrate at a high emotional frequency and begin to reprogram the subconscious mind.

We encourage you to practice affirmations everyday for 1 week to see if you feel the benefits of the practice.
