“The Sacral Chakra encapsulates your sexuality, self esteem, creativity, pleasures and frustrations. It is also known as the Swadhistana or Second Chakra, and in Martial Arts, it is known as the “Hara”. The Swadhistana governs life lessons involving blaming and guilt, sex, power and control; this Chakra is the base for your sense of morality. The Second Chakra is the base of your creativity, manifesting, money and prosperity. Information kept in this Chakra involves your emotions and feelings, and feelings of duality. Your personal magnetism, your patterns of control, and your sociability also emanated from the Swadhistana. An imbalance in the Sacral Chakra may manifest as addiction, intimacy issues, and feeling blue. The Swadhistana color is orange. It is located below the belly button, about 2-3 fingers down. The feeling nature of the 2nd Chakra connects it to the Emotional layer of the aura.The shifting emotions flow through the Second chakra and drift like a soft cloud of rainbow colors within the second layer of the aura, shifting and changing with our emotional nature.” – Read more via http://balance.chakrahealingsounds.com/2nd-chakra/

Swadhistana or Second Chakra ~ in Martial Arts, it is known as the “Hara”

 

The main challenge for the Sacral Chakra is the conditioning of our society. We live in a society where feelings are not valued, where passion and emotional reactions are being frowned upon. We are being taught not to “lose control,” and in the process ….we get disconnected from our bodies, our feelings. As if this was not enough we also experience the wounds of our collective cultural struggles over many sexual issues of our society. On the one hand sexuality is magnified and glorified and on the other hand it is rejected. This results in either blocked or excessive second chakra issues. No wonder we have so many issues with this passion center, the well spring of feelings, enjoyment and sensuality.

Do you love your body? Do you enjoy feeling your body? When was the last time you walked barefoot on the grass and felt the sensation of ground underneath your feet?

Sacral Chakra is also the center of creativity. Passion is the fuel of creative energy. Everything you create, a poem, a drawing or a website originates from the energy of the 2nd chakra. It is also where your fertility originates. After all, conceiving a child is a creative process. A person with an open Swadhistana Chakra is passionate, present in his/her body, sensual, creative and connected to his feelings.

 ****Awakening your Heart Chakra****

The Heart Chakra (Anahata) – A wellspring of Love; Warmth, Compassion, Joy and Peace — for all Humanity, and is located in the center of the chest at the Heart level.

Introduction to Anahata ChakraAnahata = Heart (Compassion, Divine Love)

The Anahata (4th Heart Chakra) — displays conscience and compassion when it is balanced. It’s all about how you manifest love, forgive others, and your feelings. This is a powerful Chakra, obviously. Here we have arrived to the Center of the Seven. (7) — 3 above, 3 below. (see picture above) Matter and Spirit united. This is a very powerful location in the body. It is directly connected to the Third Eye and the Crown Chakra. When this Chakra is overactive, the Ego will take over and there will be a lack of love in the heart of the person. People with a Heart Chakra out of balance will not want to go out of their way for others. Narcissistic is a good description. In some cases the person will appear to have no sense of self. (Walking Zombies??) There is no good will toward others.

  • Heart Chakra Affirmations to repeat daily:

I Love Myself.
I AM worthy of Love.
I forgive effortlessly. Forgiveness sets me free.
I forgive myself. I am wiser now and create a new reality.
I forgive everyone who has hurt me.
I send Love to their heart.
I have an abundance of Love to offer Others.
I give and receive Love easily and effortlessly.
Love is the core of my being. It is my Natural state.
I am a well spring of Love and Compassion.
I am a Child of the Universe.
I am LOVE.

Anahata also allows us to recognize and get in touch with the sacred and fundamental truth that runs through all of life and connects everything together. The “way of the heart” or the “path of the heart” is living your life from this energy center of love. It means living your life with loving kindness and compassion towards others. It means that your heart is open to others and you inspire kindness and compassion in others. You create safe and supportive environment. Others can feel your love and warmth. They feel loved and accepted unconditionally. People feel at peace around you, as there is no judgment coming from you. When Anahata is open and energy is flowing freely, you are not only loving to others, you are also loving to your self!

****Food That Fuels The Heart Chakra****

An important element to keep in consideration while attempting to connect consciously to your Heart Chakra, is food. Leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, dandelion greens are very beneficial to your heart on the physical level, as well as on the energetic level. Also AIR vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, celery, squash…etc, and liquids like water….. are also important to aid the heart energy center.
