Sacral Chakra: The Pleasure Center


Your sacral chakra is the 2nd energy wheel just above the root chakra located approximately 2 inches below the navel. This Chakra is related to your reproductive organs and is related to human emotion; feeling, pleasure, connection, and creativity.

Its Hindu name “Swadhisthan” translates as “sweetness”. When this energy wheel is flowing freely; in a healthy manner, you are in touch with your emotions, able to decipher the difference between your own emotions and the feelings of others, and you are able to allow yourself physical pleasure free of guilt.

As a developing youngster, 6-24 months, as you are beginning to separate from your mother; gaining your own personal autonomy, your feelings come into play. During this stage, in order to have a healthy sacral chakra, it is important for your needs to be met through affection and nurturing attention. A stressful environment or an absent parent (and many other common scenarios) can cause dysfunction in this energy center at a very young age stunting bio-energetic development.

According to http://www.transperception.com:
