The second spiraling energy center in our being is the Sacral Chakra. The Sanskrit name for this chakra is “Svadhisthana,” which means, “dwelling place of the self.” The second chakra focuses on passion and emotional health and well being. A balanced sacral chakra will lead to ultimate communication with all other chakras.

 

Location

The sacral chakra is located in the lower abdomen, about an inch above the naval. Aches, pains, and tingles in the lower abdomen region are a sign of an imbalance in the sacral chakra. As soon as the emotional issue is resolved, the symptom will be relieved. The sacral chakra is associated with the reproductive organs, hips, sacrum, low back, and kidneys. It also is involved with all of the liquids in the body including, the circulation of blood, urine, menstruation, and tears.

 

Governs

The sacral chakra governs issues regarding interpersonal relationships involving passion, sexuality, and creativity. This chakra holds an inherent duality, also known as yin/yang. Understanding these dual energies is the key to attracting relationships, which help us to better understand ourselves. Likewise, these opposite energies allow us to make the choices of interacting with others whom support spiritual development and releasing relationships, which stunt personal growth.
