Svadhisthana: 2nd Chakra (Spleen or Sexual Chakra): This center is associated with water, our emotional identity, and orientation towards self-gratification. This center is related to ourselves and our sexual identity. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. Ideally, this Chakra brings us fluidity and grace, depth of emotion, sexual fulfillment and the ability to accept change.

The color for this area is orange and it is the color which energizes this region. It stimulates our creativity, vitality and sexual expression. When this Chakra is balanced, it initiates adaptability and flexibility. This Chakra is connected to procreation and bringing in new life.  When it is out of balance, it causes one to manifest fear more easily, sexual imbalances and unsettled emotions.

To help activate this Chakra, introduce more orange foods, wear orange clothing and stimulate the olfactory nerves with the scents of sweet flowers or citrus. The symbol of this chakra is the Circle.

Life development: The Sacral Spleen Chakra is a representation of growth from six months to age two. This is the period of pleasure and self-gratification. It is a period of self-discovery and the beginnings of separation from the mother and developing child.
