This brings me to the second chakra. The second chakra is all about pleasure, physical sensation and emotional sensitivity. One way to nurture and experience the second chakra is to indulge the senses in good food (thanks Sandie).
When the second chakra is balanced, we can enjoy and experience our physical, sensual, creative selves without self-criticism or guilt. We relate to others openly, without the need to control, making honest and fulfilling connections.
MORE ABOUT THE SECOND CHAKRA:
Sanskrit word for this chakra: Svadhisthana. Colour: Orange. Element: Water
Physically, the second chakra is located at the lower abdomen, genitals, womb.
- Expression through physical movement, sexuality, creativity and taste.
- The experience of empathy and those feelings we get about something or someone.
- Relationships – with others and with ourselves.
- Emotional connection/attachment to another.
- Surrender control/merge with other(s).
- This chakra is blocked by self-criticism and guilt.
SIGNS OF IMBALANCE IN THE SECOND CHAKRA:
- Low confidence and self worth.
- Excessively emotional or repressed emotions (or both).
- Rigid / controlling.
- Struggle to express creatively
HOW TO KEEP THE SECOND CHAKRA BALANCED:
- Move the body – specifically move, stretch, open the hips.
- Surrender control. Control comes in all different forms. Sometimes we’re upfront with our controlling behaviour, sometimes more subtle. Watch yourself and your thoughts as you interact with others. Relate to others without agenda.
- Indulge in the senses. Sex, food, dance, creative expression.
- Eat slowly, appreciate the pleasure of taste.
- Explore your creativity. Get crafty.
- Wear the colour orange.
- Get into the sunshine. Sunshine stimulates the senses. Bask in the sun’s orange glow.
