Svadisthana ~ Our Sacral Chakra
Updated: Jun 27, 2019
I DESIRE. I CREATE.
The Sacral Chakra, Svadisthana, is our center for creativity, pleasure, sexuality, and pure emotions. It is located in the lower abdomen, below the navel, where we learn how to balance the exchange of emotions. The color associated with our Sacral Chakra is Orange which signifies exploration, play, direction, & purpose. Our physical connection with this chakra is our sex organs, especially for women (men's sex organs are connected to Muladhara). If we experience dis-ease or dis-comfort in these organs, it could be related to an out of balance Svadisthana. This is where we face our pleasure issues - pleasure, not just sexually, but in all areas. Are we playful enough in our lives? Do we go out & explore new places? Do we celebrate & honor our purpose in life? Do we respect our creativity?
Here we can address our concerns with self-gratification, sexuality, creativity, desire, reproduction, personal growth, emotional balance, and personal relationships.
In Balance: we are loving, caring, receptive, friendly. We are able to share our emotions openly. We are joyfully connected to all that is around us. Life is good! Our creativity and imagination are in full-bloom.
Out of Balance: we are unconfident in our sexual and/or emotional stability. We tend to stifle our natural wants & desires. We get caught up in a fantasy about our lives, unable to see reality. We seek out self-destructive pleasures.
