Magic of the Sacral Chakra
The second chakra, Svadhisthana is known as the Sacral Chakra. Svadhisthana translates to “sweetness” in Sanskrit - for this is the energy center of all the sweetness in life! Located just above your bellybutton, this energy center is characterized by the color orange, the element of water, and the sense of taste. It is the epicenter of pleasurable pursuits. From creativity, sensual experiences, connections with others, connections with the arts and our role as creators, the Sacral Chakra is our life force. It is the place of our deepest desires. The second Chakra is the chakra of sexuality and emotions. When we are opened and balanced, we feel friendly and at peace making new connections, as well as having respect for ourselves and others.
When the Sacral Chakra is in balance, we experience full vitality! Feeling physically fit, attractive, fertile, possessing a healthy libido, and sensual, it brings about joyful, friendly, relaxed, gentle, deep intimacy, and compassionate connections with the world around us. When out of balance, we may feel emotionally unstable, withdrawn, tense, insecure or shy, unforgiving, resentful, needy, controlling, guilty, and fearful. Our bodies are highly sensitive to the nature and health of our chakras. When out of balance, the body may experience hormonal imbalance, lower libido, depression, frequent UTI’s, excessive indulging, and addictions.
