The normal function of the sacral chakra is to regulate your moods and inspire your creativity. This chakra is what keeps your sex life and your attitude towards sex healthy and balanced. The area also creates your ability to ask without demanding and to graciously accept gifts and assistance from others. You’re able to find your way in life, and help others to find theirs.
When this chakra is functioning well, you’re joyful and content with your life in general. You know what you want, and have a plan for how to pursue and acquire it. You don’t seek attention, but don't shy away from it either; you are capable and confident.
Many believe that the emotional layer of the subtle body resonates with the sacral chakra. This is where you cling to things from your past, and where moods and emotions are either balanced or imbalanced.
This is the area of your energy field that holds your memories, feelings of guilt, unworthiness, and self-pity. Storing these negative energies here may wreak havoc on your emotional and physical well-being. By tuning up your sacral chakra, you give these emotions a chance to heal, so that you once again find your sense of purpose, and live an authentically empowered life.

You experience a lot of mood swings. You need too much attention and this has the potential to create problems with your friends and family. You may even be prone to promiscuity.

Symptoms of an Underactive Sacral
When this area is underactive, you may find yourself feeling guilty about your likes and preferences. Perhaps you don’t feel that you have anything to offer or you’re disappointed in your physical appearance. You may become apathetic to the joys that life has to offer you and you’re disinterested in making something of yourself. Your creativity is blocked and your confidence wobbles..
Bring some playfulness back into intimacy. Pursue some kind of creative activity or participate in some form of constructive self-expression. Once again, working with stones will help you to balance this chakra and get it running optimally.
