Discover Chakras - Part 3

Second Chakra


The Second Chakra

Svadhisthana color is orange and it is located between the base of your spine and navel, about two inches below the navel area in your lower abdomen. It is associated with the lower abdomen, kidneys, bladder, circulatory system and your reproductive organs and glands.

Chakras are energy centers in the subtle body that distribute the flow of prana or energy throughout your body. Starting at the base of the spine and working up to the crown of your head, chakras influence your emotional and physical health.

This Is The Awaken Your Creativity Chakra

This chakra represents desire, pleasure, sexuality, procreation and creativity. It personifies connections and your unique ability to accept others as well as explore new experiences. Emotionally, this chakra represents your sense of abundance, well-being, pleasure and sexuality. Consider the second chakra the most fun out of the seven.

Motivated by pleasure and joy, the sacral chakra is the driving force for your enjoyment of life. This enables you to feel and experience life in fullness. As the center of passion, your second chakra awakens your power of creation. This allows you to discover what you truly enjoy and create intimate relationships.

The sacral chakra helps cultivate flexibility and adaptability. This empowers you to move on, accept change, and transform. When balanced, the sacral chakra allows you to be passionate, creative, and sensual while connecting with your feelings and emotions.

If energy moves into your Splenic Chakra, it reveals that you are a pleasure seeker, and out to enjoy the physical world, choosing to appreciate it more intensely than someone who is only focused on food and sleep.

How to Balance

Your Sacral Chakra

Chakra balancing is the process of restoring the harmonious and balanced flow of prana or energy throughout the body. Your chakras are in constant fluctuation. Practicing chakra balancing and aligning is a regular and sometimes daily activity to explore. But how do you balance your sacral chakra? When your sacral chakra is aligned, you will likely feel great: You’re friendly, passionate, and successfully fulfilled while also eliciting feelings of wellness, abundance, pleasure, and joy. (Nice!)

Connect With Water

The sacral chakra is highly influenced by the element of water. Getting outside and relaxing near or in open water can help open and restore balance to your second chakra. Lakes, rivers, streams, or the ocean are all useful. Wade or dangle your feet in the water to allow your sacral energy to flow. A warm bath or shower can also help aid in balancing your chakra.

Creative Play

As the center of your creativity and passion, it is important to explore new or old hobbies to help open your sacral chakra and let your creative energy flow. Dancing, drawing, writing, or engaging in playful activities are all useful tools to bring the harmonious flow of energy to your second chakra.

Physical Activity

Meditation plays an important role in restoring balance to your chakras. Chakra meditation techniques are similar to traditional meditation techniques but focus on a specific area of the body. Below is a simple meditation technique to aid in balancing your sacral chakra.

  • Sit with your shoulders back and spine straight. Relax your muscles as you close your eyes and breathe deeply. Inhale through your nose and exhale through the mouth.

  • Focus your attention on the location of your sacral chakra: your abdomen, a few inches below your navel.

  • Since the sacral chakra is tied to the color of orange, imagine an orange glow below your navel, slowly expanding to the pelvic region and making the whole area warm and relaxed. Rest in this sensation for 3-5 minutes.

  • When you are ready, slowly open your eyes. You may follow with positive affirmations.


Affirmations are a positive way to heal negative programming that can be embedded in your subtle body. When balancing your sacral chakra, practice saying the following phrases to yourself:

  • I am passionate

  • I am open to experiencing the present moment

  • I am comfortable in my body

  • I feel at peace

  • I am a creative being
