The Second Chakra.

The Second Chakra - Swadhisthana Chakra.

The Second chakra: Conventionally represented by an orange circle.

This chakra resides about one inch below the navel and controls sexual organs, the endocrine glands of the gonads in men and the ovaries in women.

Its normal function is blocked by the fear of being hurt by relationships. By people or things which we are strongly attached to - like parents, children or spouse being taken away from us by death or disagreement. The result of this pain, which is stored in the second chakra, is the inability to breathe into the abdomen.

In 30% of all people, as found in many surveys, this is the case. 30% of all people cannot breathe naturally, automatically, without constantly turning their attention towards breathing properly. In extreme cases this lack of proper breathing function contributes or even causes panic attacks, multiple sclerosis, and M.E. or "yuppie flu". Always it causes a lack of energy. So, the retraining of the breathing function can help release this stored pain and give much more energy to the system. The chakra is also called "the lower emotional centre" which is involved in the marital connection and the nurturing of children.

It is Negative Energy held in the Second Chakra, which causes all of the above problems

The lack of education of the Second Chakra is called a lack of Emotional Intelligence Quotient (IQ) which causes the fleeting desire filled relationships we see in modern society and the emotional pain which is always involved. This emotional pain is negative Energy, which causes all the above problems.


The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali; Translation and Commentary by Swami Satchidananda.

The education of the emotions is encompassed in the statement from the "Yoga Sutras of Patanjali" - the father of Raja Yoga from the second century AD - "The conscious self mastery of non-attachment towards those things heard about or seen." The ability to stop and start attachment, at will.
