Swadhishthan Chakra – Sacral Chakra
The second chakra is the sexual chakra. Impotency, menstruation and gynaecological problems and menopause difficulties are some of the obvious signs for blockages in the sacral chakra. It corresponds with the reproductive as well as the urinary system.
Of course blockages in the Swadhishthan Chakra also reflect in our emotions. Sexual insecurity and frigidity can be the result as well as a overly high sexual desire which can lead to a partner cheating on the other one.
But it is not only about sexual feelings, all our feelings are connected to this chakra and consequently also the confusion of feelings when you don’t know what you want. Just like the element of this chakra, the water, you cannot stop your feelings, let them flow.
While with the first chakra the energy is concentrating on yourself, your roots and where you come from, the second chakra is concerned about your relation with a second person. This is also how one of the main problems that arise with blockages in the second chakra is the ego.
