Where is my second chakra?The second chakra is the energetic region of the lower belly and inner pelvis. It represents the eternal process of creation and regeneration. Our womb resides there, and in some traditions it is considered “one’s own abode” or my favorite, “Source”.
I love this! As women, it’s all about the second chakra. It holds creation, babies and fertile ideas. It keeps us grounded.How can I have second chakra alignment?There are many factors that can mess with second chakra energy, and one of the big ones is sexual abuse and trauma. Just ask any friend and I’m betting 3 out of 4 have experienced some form of trauma, and all of us know someone who has. It’s heartbreaking.
And it’s something that we can heal from. First steps include recognizing and acknowledging the trauma. Accept that it doesn’t make us less whole or unloveable. And then move the energy through to free up space so that we can access our passionate creative selves.
Joy, pleasure, enthusiasm and sensuality are luscious emotions and part of the yummy human experience that is super enjoyable.
Why would you want to keep energy flowing through the second chakra? Because stagnant energy can make us sick. And if not sick, then uncomfortable or hurting in some way. Therefore, it's important to keep in mind.
The Yoga Journal says: " When the sacral chakra is out of alignment, you may experience chronic low back pain, ovarian cysts and other reproductive issues, urinary tract infections, impotence, pain during intercourse, complications with the bladder and kidneys, and other pelvic–lower abdominal issues." That's a long list of possible misalignment.
