11 Jan Sacral Circle – Show Title Meaning and Symbolism

A person with an open Sacral Chakra is passionate, present in her body, sensual, creative, and connected to her feelings.

The circle symbol is universal, sacred and divine. It represents the infinite nature of energy, and the inclusivity of the universe. It represents the notions of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness, all cyclic movement, God.

The Sacral Chakra is your passion and pleasure center and it is located in the pelvic area. The gift of this chakra is experiencing our lives through feelings and sensations.

The second chakra is the center of feeling, emotion, pleasure, sensuality, intimacy, creativity and connection.

The energy of this chakra allows you to let go, to move, and to feel change and transformation occurring within your body. It allows you to experience this moment as it is, in its own fullness. Sexual trauma and/or relationship heartache can cause energetic blockages in the sacral.

The main challenge for the second chakra is the conditioning of our society. We live in a society where feelings are not valued, where passion and emotional reactions are being frowned upon. We are being taught not to “lose control”.  We get disconnected from our bodies and our feelings.

As if this was not enough, we also experience the wounds of our collective cultural struggles over many sexual issues of our society. On one hand sexuality is magnified and glorified, and on the other hand, it is rejected. This results in either blocked or excessive second chakra issues.

Passion is the fuel of creative energy. Everything you create, a poem, a drawing, or a website, originates from the energy of second chakra. It is also where your fertility originates.
