The second chakra, Svadhisthana, is located between the pubis and the belly button. Also known as the Sacral Chakra, the sanskrit name can be translated as “one’s own abode.” This chakra governs sexuality, creativity and our relationship with others. The second chakra is associated with the color naranja, or orange.
One of the gifts of this world is that every person we encounter is a reflection. We are each a mirror for all the beauty and chaos encompassed deep within our hearts. We are each shining examples of our one flawed, shared humanity. When we notice a particular attitude exhibited in the people around us and it triggers a reaction in our own hearts, that is information telling us that we are holding a similar fear or emotion within that needs our attention.
