Due to its proximity to the reproductive organs the Sacral Chakra is associated with sexuality and abundance. It provides the energy to give birth to new ideas, projects and artistic endeavors. It also can bring new life and new energy into existing projects. The Sacral Chakra is a wonderful energy center for encouraging creativity.
