The second chakra, or Swadhisthana is located just under the navel. It is symbolized by a white lotus flower or crescent moon. The animal totem of the second chakra is the crocodile and the musical note that resonates with this chakra is “D”. This is considered the sacral chakra.
The color of the second chakra is orange. Foods to stimulate the second chakra include oranges, apricots, carrots, and cantaloupe.
Physically, Swadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm. This energy is also where we tap into our creativity and pleasure. It rules the reproductive organs and the corresponding gland is the sexual endocrine glands. This chakra helps to balance our spirituality and sexuality, and is also the area in the body where we hold blockages relating to sexual trauma.
The process of making changes in our life stream through our personal choices is a product of second chakra energy. A well-functioning second chakra helps one to maintain a healthy yin-yang existence ~ Phylameana lila Desy
A second chakra out of alignment can create physical problems with the corresponding body parts ruled by this chakra. This may include sexual dysfunction, or masculine and feminine reproductive issues. If this energy is out of alignment, it prevents one from tapping into your creative gifts.
When this chakra is well aligned it empowers one to connect sexuality and spirituality. When this energy center is in alignment, it makes one feel creatively ignited and inspired.
Meditation for the second chakra:
Sitting in easy pose, make sure that your spine is straight. Arms are out to the sides, with the elbows bent and the palms of the hands facing each other about shoulder width apart.
Angle the palms in toward each other at a 60 degree angle. The elbows are bent with the palms of the hands facing each other about shoulder width apart. This movement is strong and sharp, something like a clap without touching the hands.
The Sanskrit name for the second chakra is Svadhisthana, which means “sweetness.” This is an apt name for the sweetness of desire, pleasure, and sexuality associated with the life-giving waters of Svadhisthana ~ Anodea Judith
As the hands move inward, tighten the sex organ and release it as the hands move back to the starting position. For men the tightening is centered at the base of the sex organ and for women, the contraction includes the clitoris. Note: This is not a mul bandha, so the anus and Navel Point are not contracted together with the sex organ.
Focus on the tip of your nose. Begin with eleven minutes and slowly work up to 31 Minutes. Inhale and hold the breath and tighten and tense every muscle in the body. Hold for 15 seconds and then relax.
Repeat the sequence: inhaling, holding the breath, tensing the body, and exhaling two more times.
