The second chakra (Svadhisthana)
The second chakra is also called the sexual chakra and is located in the pelvis at the border of the pubic area, connected to: ovaries or testicles. Through the second chakra, which is located in the lower abdomen, Kundalini releases pent-up emotions - both from ourselves and from others - which increases our creativity and ingenuity. As the feelings of others become clear, we develop more compassion and more insight into our own needs. You are less able to give yourself away, and you become more aware of your body and your sensory capabilities. We are now able to cope with eating disorders, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and abdominal discomfort.
Gifts of the second chakra: turning to feelings and the ability to empathize with the emotional needs of others. When Kundalini opens this chakra, you no longer let yourself be held back by the feelings of others. You are able to make the most of your creativity and empathy. Most people use this gift to help others in a therapeutic sense, or to develop their own creative talents.
Properties: the second chakra is about creativity and relationships, which is expressed in sensuality and passion. His language is colorful and fluent. This chakra fires eroticism and warm human feelings.
Physical effects: it affects the sex organs, the other organs in the lower abdomen and the tailbone and is responsible for reproduction, digestion and the immune system. The sense of taste is addressed by the sacral chakra.
Disorders: a blockade manifests itself in jealousy, guilt, mental weakness and menstrual complaints. The world seems dull, you feel limited and weak and can not enjoy life. When the second chakra is in balance and harmonizes with the other chakras: a healthy second chakra stands for creative strength, well-developed sexual and life energy, good digestion and targeted activities. You are cheerful and responsive to your own needs and those of other people.

Food selection: this chakra is connected with movement, including the flow of our emotions. We may be inclined to eat too much to suppress those emotions. Take the time to prepare food and use your senses while you eat. Choose foods that support movement and emotion: fats and oils (especially those that are rich in omega fatty acids). Fish, tropical fruits, seeds, nuts and orange crops.
In everyday life: contact with water, for example bathing and drinking a lot, living near water: creative activities, dancing (eg belly dancing), enjoying delicious food, orange clothing, objects, flowers and interior.
Smell: ylang-ylang, sandalwood, myrrh, pomerans, pepper, vanilla, orange.
In the yoga: singing the closed vowel O, standing posture and bending over: all that has an effect on the pelvis and the bottom of the spine: sat kriya stimulates balancing with the other chakras.
