Symptoms of an Unbalanced Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra ist he sexual chakra that governs the lower extremities. When it’s overactive, overindulgence in sex can overpower the mind. When it’s underactive, it leads to little or no sex drive.



When we are not finding contentment, we are not experiencing a sense of satisfaction. That leads to craving and sometimes overindulging in actions that don’t lead to true happiness. This can also lead to addiction. A blocked sacral chakra leads to emotional instability, lack of excitement, depression, and sticking to one set of people or habits. On the contrary, if the chakra is overactive, the person can be emotionally absorbed, overambitious, aggressive, or possessive.

When we lack creativity, feel unmotivated, and tend to overthink it’s a clear sign other symptoms of sacral chakra are imbalanced.
