Sacral Chakra

 

Second- Sexual -Sacral- the I desire chakra * svadhisthana *
Second Seal

 The second chakra is about friendliness, creativity, sexuality, emotions and intuition on the gut level. It's influenced by how emotions were expressed or repressed during childhood. The sexual center for women.

 

This chakra is located just beneath the navel, and related to our sexual and reproductive capacity. Blockages manifests as emotional problems or sexual guilt.

From just about the seventh year of life until the age of about fourteen, we begin to discover our sensual/sexual body. A new awareness of our physical body and our individuality develops. It is at this time that our imagination and creativity starts to evolve.  We become aware of the joy these things bring.

This particular chakra is linked to the yin aspect of the kidneys, the ovaries in women, and the testes and prostate in men  It has connection to the cells of leydi and the hormones.. It is related to the element of water ( the essence of life) and has much to do with the flowing fluids of the body such as blood, urine, lymph etc.

A person who is well centered in this chakra is a person with healthy body awareness and high self love and esteem. The person will express his/her individuality living creatively. He/she will have a healthy regard and relationship with his or her sexuality and its expression. This person will be deeply in touch with all aspects of joy.

With a healthy perspective of one self, one does not just manifest healthy thoughts of their sensual self, but will also use this positive energy  to deal with all emotions, desires and the ability to create the world they want.    Someone with this chakra in check will be able to cultivate a drama reduced well balanced environment for themselves and their families.  It is where manifesting your desires starts. This is also the home and seat of your inner child with your god given original life essence(energy).  Without being able to use your original energy and convince your inner child that your desire is worth while, you will be stuck unable to manifest your desires.  It is here that you must believe you are worthy. 

The sexual chakra being of original energy is also a person best tool in healing themselves.   With a little training and breathing we are able to take this energy upward to our other chakras to help heal them and help us to connect with our higher power.  As below, so above. Without a healthy sexual chakra it is harder for us to live even a healthy life with our higher power. It is here that we start to build our beliefs of ourselves known as emotions.

Unfortunately only about 50% of us express ourselves healthily through this seat of consciousness.  At about the time children enter school or even earlier on as we enter this period associated with the development of expression through the sexual chakra, we were told “cover yourself up, you are not little anymore!”  It is here that we learn shame of our bodies, just as Adam and Eve were taught in the bible.  Honestly, do you really believe that god intended us to hide or mask our perfection of his likeness.  

  We are told “don't touch yourself or you will go blind or grow hairy palms,”  Young women learned about “the curse”as it was once called. Only recently are children taught about their sexuality in public schools. However, due to varying religious beliefs, very seldom do they teach children healthy views of sexuality and other ways to deal with the increasing energy building in their sexual chakra.  Many are told it is sinful to desire sex at this age and are forced out of guilt to hold this energy in or be condemned as a sinner.   Since about 1960, more of our young have decided not to feel guilt and live more freely.  Could it be generations swinging once again in our views.  Still the whisper of sin lingers deep with in the mind.

Incest, child-beating, touch-starvation  and complications due to long term infectious STDs are sad facts in many people's lives. If we receive negative programming about our physical/sensual body, we learn quickly to close down sensitivity to it. We cease expressing ourselves through this chakra because it is “unacceptable” to general view society and  very painful to us. If we do close down this chakra, we may suffer from an inability to experience sexual pleasure or to express ourselves sensually and creatively. Invariably feelings of inadequacy at this level are reflected in possessive, jealous personalities.

Ovarian cysts/tumors, breast problems (they being linked to the reproductive system), sterility, impotency, pre-menstrual syndrome, obsessive/compulsive sexual behavior, etc. may all be signs that on some level we have chosen to cease healthy expression through the sexual chakra.

Lack of self-expression at this level is the basis for the majority of our dis-ease processes in life. If we reject our physical, we reject self. Self rejection depletes the immune system. Rejection of our sensuality/sexuality causes depression of our life-force energy. We stay out of touch with our innate capacity for joy or limit it dramatically.

When energy is not flowing freely from this chakra: you are lacking in creative drive and negotiation skills. This chakra is primarily associated with creativity and sexuality. This is a power vs. vulnerability chakra. It is about optimism, self-confidence, enthusiasm and courage. It involves money and power, who rules your relationship, boundaries and submissiveness. Frozen creativity causes fibroids. Lack of boundaries causes cervical dysplasia. If your second chakra is strong you have no problem saying no. When this chakra is weak you are susceptible to lower back pain and prostate problems, pernicious anemia and skin trouble. Men in their 40's and 50's sometimes struggle with their identity, creativity and potency (testapause). If there is too much yin there may be sexual problems. The abdominal area may be flabby, saggy or generally weak and may also be associated with kidney or bladder weaknesses. Too much yang will present as sexuality dominating the person's life, sexual frustration and excessive fantasizing. There may be excessive tightness in the abdominal area leading to low back problems.

  Tantra -When two people make love, then the lights from their sex chakras are mixed, and the light are creating figures, whose beauty also in this case depends on the love between the parties.
Two people, who really love each other, create a fantastic aura around them when making love - it can be compared to a forest of fairytale trees, whose flowers and leaves create an arc above the lovers, which has so powerful vibrations, that a lot of negative karma can be burned away.
In other words, just by loving another person and showing it by sexual behavior which pleases and satisfies, one can develop very much personally and in the end thereby also spiritually
