A deficient chakra means you have weakness or avoidance around the issues of the chakra. When our sacral chakra is deficient, we may be rigid in body or mind, exhibit poor social skills, or experience a general lack of desire.
If the sacral chakra is deficient, a person may find it hard to know what they are feeling. His or her body may be physically stiff or rigid, and will find it difficult to soften and let go. Sex may feel like a chore, or be emotionally meaningless.
Physical touch may be devoid of pleasure. Boundaries will be strong and hardened, and there may be a real fear of intimacy and change. It can be hard for a person with a deficient second chakra to feel passion, and connection with themselves or others.
Symptoms of Deficiency
- rigid in body and attitudes
- frigidity fear of sex
- poor social skills
- denial of pleasure
- excessive boundaries
- fear of change
- lack of desire, passion and excitement.
If a chakra is excessive, you overcompensate with actions to try to heal that chakra. An excessive sacral chakra can result in extreme emotions, an addiction to pleasure or sex, over-sensitivity, or a propensity for creating drama.
If the sacral chakra is excessive, we find poor or non- existent emotional and sexual boundaries, with a strong tendency to give to the point of self-depreciation. Emotions tend to be extremely strong and change quickly. With an excessive second chakra, the individual feels most alive in intense emotional states and therefore often creates dramatic highs and lows for themselves. An excess in this area can often lead to co- dependence.
- sexual acting out, sexual addiction
- pleasure addiction
- excessively strong emotions, ruled by emotions (hysteria, bipolar mood swings crisis junkies)
- poor boundaries, invasion of others
- seductive manipulation
- emotional dependency
- obsessive attachment.
