Lower Abdomen Chakra (Swadhisthana)


Lower abdomen chakra (Swadhisthana)

This is the chakra of reproductive and digestive organs and of the lower back and hips. The second chakra draws us to water and regulates our bodily fluids much as the moon governs the tides. Its energy is directed toward sexual passion, emotion, friendship. Is it any wonder that Aphrodite and Eros—Venus and Cupid—are the deities we associate with it? To balance and open this chakra, try a mala with orange stones such as coral or carnelian.
