What is the Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is the 2nd chakra and is a higher frequency than the root chakra. It is associated with hope to me.
It is also associated with creativity, emotions, and development. Most likely you have already gone through this stage of learning the things that are taught from this stage of life.
The sacral chakra is one that requires you to grow as a person. If you have made it here, congratulations!
You have lived!
To me it represents hope for the life that is coming, as it can be seen as a chakra to be gone through in late childhood to early teenage years. You start to be your own person and develop your own interests that are of your own design.
Creativity is something that is gained from this chakra. This is a chakra that is meant to be fully awake during it.
During meditation I make sure to not close my eyes when I go through this chakra and to look and see the world.
This chakra is one that you not yet aware of what is coming next, but you are awake. It is a higher frequency than the root chakra and allows access to more of one’s true self.

You use the sacral chakra when you are developing yourself. Hope lets us grow faster and the sacral chakra can help us grow faster, which is why I think it represents hope. The late childhood and early teens are some of the most hopeful times in a person’s life and are also when you are growing most.
This chakra is there to aid you. Have hope in life and you are using this chakra! It is something you can do simply by enjoying your life, whether you are aware of it or not. Maybe you don’t know what is next yet but hope is there even if you don’t know it.

This is the chakra that accelerates your growth and begins to reveal our true selves. Hope is another thing it is associated with and is its main nature, along with growth and fun in our later childhood.
Signs That Your Sacral Chakra Is Unbalanced
If you are feeling unbalanced in your emotions or creativity, or have doubts/lack of hope for your future, you may have an imbalance with your sacral chakra.
You should have hope for your future if you have learned from this chakra or stage of life.
How Long Does It Take to Develop the Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra takes the longest to develop as it is the second lowest frequency. Each chakra after the root chakra takes successively less time to develop as they are higher and higher frequencies, hence the color.
