The Sacral Center is the most important of the four motor centers. It is the energy center for workforce and life force energy, and it is associated with fertility, vital energy, and sexuality. It corresponds to the ovaries and testes. As the body’s prime motor, the Sacral has enormous power.
Only Generators and Manifesting Generators have a defined Sacral Center. That means that all Projectors, Manifestors and Reflectors have open Sacrals, and are taking in and amplifying the driving energy that worker bee Generators are always producing. Because they can take on the energy of Sacral beings they may work as hard or even harder than Generators, but Non-Sacral beings are simply not built to maintain that energy. Open Sacrals have elevated levels of energy pumping through bodies that are not equipped to handle it, are subject to energy excesses, and are born without knowing when enough is enough or how to establish boundaries. This can cause them to take on too much, and can lead to exhaustion. Undefined Sacrals are not wired for the daily grind or for prolonged periods of labor, but because society demands that all people work the same way, most open Sacrals have to reach physical burnout before they can recognize that they need to set boundaries around how much and how hard they are willing to work.
Those with open Sacral may get the message when they are young that they are lazy because they need more rest than others, or because their real gifts lie in creative expression, directing, guiding, managing or reflecting back the workforce energy of defined Sacrals. Those with open Sacral are not lazy, and they are not inferior because they can’t do the quantity of work that defined Sacrals do. They simply have a different purpose. Each of the types that have open Sacral Center have unique abilities that allow them to engage with the energy of Sacral beings, so following Strategy & Authority is everything for those with open Sacral to ensure that they are finding the correct work-- work that allows them the freedom that they need to stay healthy. Some of the most successful people in the world have open Sacral, including Martha Stewart, Paul Newman, Jerry Seinfeld, Brad Pitt and George Clooney. They each found their individual gifts and built careers that allowed them flexibility and the ability to find the right work/life balance. Parents of children with open Sacral can help them to identify and explore what excites them, and look for cues that tell them when a child with open Sacral needs a break. Helping open Sacral children get in touch with their bodies and learn to anticipate when they need to rest will help them to set boundaries for themselves.
Open Sacrals need that rest and time alone to discharge the energy of others. This doesn’t necessarily have to be sleep, but can be finding time to be alone each day to clear out what they have absorbed. Open Sacral Presidents JFK and George W Bush were both famous for taking daily naps, and JFK also scheduled an hour or two per day of alone time. Open Sacrals also need a pre-sleep phase where they spend some time in bed letting their bodies unwind before going to sleep. During sleep the open Sacral is working to clear out all of its absorbed energy, and if the open Sacral is sleeping next to a person with a defined Sacral, that defined Sacral Center is recharging all of its powerful energy during sleep. It is very difficult for the open Sacral not to absorb this energy while it’s trying to discharge, and this can be disruptive and impact the quality of rest that an open Sacral gets. Because of this, open Sacrals do best when they sleep alone.
Since the undefined Sacral has no consistent boundaries, and with potential for deep conditioning, they can be anywhere from mildly curious to obsessed with sex. Open Sacrals can go from abstinence to sex addiction, from celibacy to sex work. Each sexual experience will be unique because the open Sacral is being conditioned either positively or negatively by their partner. The potential wisdom of this open center is to learn about healthy sex and safe boundaries, and to be able to discern when enough is enough. The open Sacral Center is here to become wise about work and sexuality.
