The Sex Chakra is located about 2 inches below the navel and is often called the Belly Chakra or the Sacral Chakra. Calling it the Sex Chakra is based on the fact that this word describes its function far better than belly or sacral. Indeed this chakra deals with sexuality which is far more than the process of procreation. The way you interact with others on a social level, your sense of self worth, your expression of creativity and of course your sexuality are all based in this chakra. The female sexual organs are located here; giving her sexuality a more emotional feel than the male’s physically grounded sexuality. As children we are very in touch with the Sex Chakra and are in fact very sensual beings. Extremely creative, imaginative, loving and tactile, children love to touch everything and to hug those they love. They are free in their self expression and in touch with the Lower Self. As the Base Chakra brings the Lower Self's nurturance, safety and security into the body, the Sex Chakra brings in her love, sensuality, enthusiasm, creativity, curiosity and personality.
The Sex Chakra is intimately tied to the Throat Chakra which is linked to the Higher Self's creative impulses and powers. Without the Lower Self's creativity found in the Sex Chakra combined with the Higher Self's creativity found in the Throat Chakra there would be no creation. For material manifestation to occur, a combination or merging is required just like a man and a woman's sexual energy is required to create a baby. It is impossible to be oneself and spontaneously express your true nature without the Sex Chakra being fully awakened and uninhibited.
Unfortunately society’s rules and our parents’ attitudes towards acceptable behavior have often buried the Sex Chakra, and therefore the Lower Self, under emotional and sexual repression. A blocked Sex Chakra can lead a person to be emotionally unbalanced, manipulative, obsessed with sex, scared of sex, lacking in energy, enthusiasm and self-worth. As the Higher Self cannot and will not incarnate into a body with a blocked base chakra it will not incarnate if the Sex Chakra is blocked either. The Lower Self must have free rein of the lower centers of the body with no emotional repression or sexual inhibition for the Higher Self to enter the body. The awakened Base and Sex Chakras give the light body a ground which is essential for its incarnation.
In the physical body the Sex Chakra relates to the female sexual organs, kidneys, bladder, and large intestine.
