Creativity and inspiration are both powered by our Sacral and Throat Chakras. When these two energy centers are in balance and working together, they can really get your creative juices flowing.

It’s the energy center that is also linked with pleasure and passion, and physically, with the sexual and reproductive organs. It’s no surprise then, that creativity – the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality — is driven out of the center for pleasure and passion. It unleashes personal power and inner energy.

The Throat Chakra, located in the area of the mouth, throat and nasal passages is the centre of communication and self-expression. This chakra represents how you express yourself and relate to others.
