 Svadhisthana Chakra-The Sacral Centre

CHAKRA 2

 

Swadhisthana, is located in the sacrum, directly behind the genital organ. It is considered to correspond to the testes or the ovaries and is also related to, the genitourinary system and the adrenals. The meaning of the word swadhisthana is 'ones own abode' The Sacral Chakra is symbolized by a lotus with six petals, and corresponds to the colour orange. The key issues involving Svadisthana are relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs, and pleasure. Physically, Svadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm. On a deeper level, swadhisthana chakra is the seat of the unconscious mind, samskaras and remote ancestral memories. It is the center of man's most primitive instincts.
