Standard intro: If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started!
Your Sacral Chakra is second from the bottom, also called the 2nd chakra. It is located right around the naval or hip area and is known as the chakra for “passion and pleasure.” Your dirty mind is correct, but there are other ways to view passion and pleasure as well. Are you getting a lot of enjoyment out of your art? Are you passionate about your projects? If not, you may want to take a closer look at this chakra. It is associated with the color orange.
The sounds associated with the Sacral Chakra
The key of D is connected to the Sacral Chakra. For this chakra, I don’t really feel like there is one best genre. Passion and pleasure mean totally different things to different people, and we all associate a different style of music with them as well. I would say to just follow whatever you feel is right. Here is the cool little video for your Sacral Chakra:
How will I know if my Sacral Chakra isn’t aligned?
I kind of mentioned it earlier but this is one chakra where I think physical symptoms might come into play. Can we just be real for a minute? How’s your sex life? If you’re single that’s fine, but are you doing alright sexually? You don’t have to let me know (please don’t, actually, thanks!) but consider it yourself. Sex is more than just physical, it’s a mental/emotional/spiritual thing, and if you’re getting too little or too much (yes, you can get too much) you’ll feel it. You also want to make sure you’re getting excitement and happiness in your life in general. If you’re having a hard time with any of it, those are all clues.
How can I align it?
You’ll want to rediscover your areas of passion and pleasure. I’m trying really hard to keep this G-rated but…you know what I mean. Examine all areas of your life and see what pieces don’t bring you joy. How can you change those? Other quick tips:
- Surround yourself in the color orange
- Try something new and exciting
- Embrace your sexuality, whatever it may be
- Meditate with Sacral Chakra music
- Listen to songs in the key of D
What songs are good for the Sacral Chakra?
Maroon 5, “Moves Like Jagger” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEPTlhBmwRg
Kinda perfect, am I right? Also, want to feel super old? This song came out in 2011.
Hall and Oates, “Maneater” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRYFKcMa_Ek
Shout out to when every single song had a saxophone solo.
Boyz II Men, “I’ll Make Love to You” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV8vB1BB2qc
You see where I’m going with this.
Halestorm, “Freak Like Me” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sXoA7B5yJo
I did a parody of this song for a client once, and Lzzy Hale is a mind-blowing vocalist.
Mariah Carey, “Melt Away” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKFQV_k44mI&spfreload=5
Giving you a little old-school Mariah. Her incredible range is on full display in this track and I love it.
I’ve really been trying to give as wide of a variety of genres as I possibly can, but ultimately I’m just pulling songs from my own experience and what I know. Here’s a list of songs in D: http://www.songkeyfinder.com/songs-in-key/d-major?page=1
If you can’t find any on this list, I would just gather your favorite artists, find out what key those songs are in, and apply to whatever chakra they line up in. Or, if one song jumps out at you for one particular chakra, go for it. This isn’t an exact science, you know? It’s mostly based on what you feel.
