What is the sacral chakra? The sacral chakra is believed to be located below the navel, where the perineum is. It’s said to be associated with the sex organs and the kidneys, though this isn’t supported by scientific research. It’s also associated with the water element and portrayed as a vibrant orange color.
All of the four kidney energy aspects are essential in growth and development. These four aspects include kidney jing (essence), kidney yin (water), kidney yang (fire) and kidney qi. All of the body’s functions rely on the heat provided by kidney qi and the gate of life (the space between the left and right kidneys).
Kidney. The kidneys remove waste and excess fluid to make urine. In TCM, the kidney is related to fear, which can manifest as chronic fear or anxiety when qi out of balance, as well as result in: Emotions: Fearful, weak willpower, insecure, aloof, and isolated.
FEAR + FRIGHT. Fear is the emotion of the kidneys and the bladder, organs associated with the water element. It is a normal adaptive emotion, but can become chronic when ignored. Kidney issues often arise when we are dealing with fear, such as a change in life direction or unstable living conditions.
In the books of the Bible that follow the Pentateuch, mostly in Jeremiah and Psalms, the human kidneys are cited figuratively as the site of temperament, emotions, prudence, vigor, and wisdom. In five instances, they are mentioned as the organs examined by God to judge an individual.
The Sacral chakra governs the liver, gallbladder, kidney, pancreas, adrenal glands, spleen, middle spine, stomach, upper intestines, sexual organs, and autoimmune system.
A blocked root chakra can manifest as physical issues like arthritis, constipation, and bladder or colon problems, or emotionally through feeling insecure about finances or our basic needs and well-being. When it’s in alignment and open, we will feel grounded and secure, both physically and emotionally.
If your kidneys aren’t working properly, you may notice one or more of the following signs:- Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
An upset stomach or vomiting.
Confusion or trouble concentrating.
Swelling, especially around your hands or ankles.
More frequent bathroom trips.
Muscle spasms (muscle cramps)
Dry or itchy skin.
Some ingredients that are claimed to cleanse the kidneys include:- Dandelion tea.
When an emotion is not fully processed, it may become “stuck” in the body. However, it’s the limbic structures of the brain where emotional processing occurs.
Body and Mind
The positive emotions of gratefulness and togetherness and the negative emotions of guilt and despair all looked remarkably similar, with feelings mapped primarily in the heart, followed by the head and stomach.
Anger was related to the liver, happiness to the heart, thoughtfulness to the heart and spleen, sadness to the heart and lungs, fear to the kidneys, heart, liver, and gallbladder, surprise to the heart and the gallbladder, and anxiety to the heart and the lungs.
Stress and uncontrolled reactions to stress can also lead to kidney damage. As the blood filtering units of your body, your kidneys are prone to problems with blood circulation and blood vessels. High blood pressure and high blood sugar can place an additional strain or burden on your kidneys.
This is כליה (kilyah) in Hebrew. What is interesting about the word itself is that it is a feminine noun, that only appears in the Bible in the plural form (kilyot). This is one of the fascinating ways we know without a doubt that it means “kidney” because it’s always plural (and kidneys come in a pair).
In the Septuagint the word ὄργανον (organon) means “instrument”. Any instrument, not one in particular. It is also worth noting that the only sort of organ that was known at the time when the Septuagint was being translated was the hydraulis, the water organ.
Choose continuous activity such as walking, swimming, bicycling (indoors or out), skiing, aerobic dancing or any other activities in which you need to move large muscle groups continuously. Low-level strengthening exercises may also be beneficial as part of your program.
Citrus fruits and juices, such as oranges and grapefruit.
Prunes and prune juice.
Dried fruits, such as dates and raisins.
Melons, such as honeydew and cantaloupe.
In ancient times, qi belonged to yang and was called yang-qi. Therefore, kidney qi belongs to yang, and represents all the functions of the kidney. On the other hand, the body’s essence, blood, and fluid are generally called yin essence in TCM.
Excessive fire, excessive energy in the Solar Plexus Chakra can create impulsive reactions such as anger and aggression which is a sign of blocked chakra.

The Solar Plexus Chakra
When it’s blocked: You can suffer from low self-esteem, have difficulty making decisions, and may have anger or control issues.
The seven chakras are the main energy centers of the body. You’ve probably heard people talk about “unblocking” their chakras, which refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can run through them freely, and harmony exists between the physical body, mind, and spirit.
