The second chakra, located in the abdomen, lower back, and sexual organs, is related to the element water, and to emotions and sexuality. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. Ideally this chakra brings us fluidity and grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment, and the ability to accept change.

The second chakra is commonly referred to as the sexual or sacral chakra, because it is located in the pelvis and has an association with the reproductive organs, sensual delight and pure joy. However, I find that there is so much more to this chakra. Body-based intuition, spine tingling and gut feeling, often result from the knowing of this energy center. It also presents strongly with respect to all relationships and most especially family dynamics. Whereas the first chakra shows us genetic patterns of inheritance; the second shows us how we play with relationship roles – what it is to be a mother, son, brother or father. Past-life relationships can be illuminated through the second chakra. This chakra is also home to creativity and playfulness, art making and all forms of creative communication.
Activating the second chakra can bring increased body awareness including discomfort. Breathing evenly and deeply into the abdomen can activate and clear the second chakra. The trick is to feel what your body offers and breathe through it.
