Imbalance in the Sacral Chakra can be caused by: body shaming by parents/peers/lovers, a strict or authoritarian upbringing, sexual abuse, toxic relationships, religious indoctrination, being taken advantage of sexually or otherwise
Also societal conditioning such as: love and sex only looks one certain way and is between one man and one woman, strong emotions are bad and should be hidden (especially in men), people who are creative/artists/unconventionally express themselves don't live in the "real world", women tend to overact and become hysterical; is it that time of the month?, being an artist is a fantasy/unrealistic/no way to make a living
