2nd Chakra Say . . .

Chakra 2: Svadhistana ~ Sweetness • Desire • Power of Relationships • The Right to Feel • Water

mirror starThe 2nd chakra is where kundalini release begins – orgasm, exercise (movement, fluidity), and creativity. This is where we begin to put ourselves out to the world – we take what we experience and reflect on it. We move beyond the tribe. We like to make things, and push boundaries and we develop our unique “taste” for things.

There is a push and pull with the 2nd chakra. It is where we develop our sense of personal identity, and at the same time it is where we develop our relationships. It is through relationships that we become conscious of who we are. Every relationship, whether casual or intimate, has a lesson for us. The 2nd chakra is our ethical center, where we develop our sense of honor, where we make choices creatively, sexually, and emotionally. This is where our emotions begin to move, and where we need to be fluid enough to let them inform us so that we may continue expanding our consciousness. This is where we must balance fear and faith, control and chaos, creativity and finances.

“Sex is an affirmation of life. By making sex a prominent part of it – placing it on the top of our list of priorities – it helps us face daily challenges in other parts of our lives. No matter what struggles there are, we put them aside and establish a time and place to embrace desire and pleasure. We are less likely to fight over folding the laundry or the details of renovating the house when we feel sexually satisfied… Communication, respect, trust, and generosity that begin in the bedroom find their way into every aspect of the relationship.” ~Stanley Seigel

“Female sexual pleasure, rightly understood, is not just about sexuality, or just about pleasure. it serves also, as a medium of female self-knowledge and hopefulness; female creativity and courage; female focus and initiative; female bliss and transcendence; and as a medium of sensibility, that feels very much like freedom. To understand the vagina properly is to realize that it is not only coextensive with the female brain, but it is also, essentially, part of the female soul.” – Naomi Wolf  Vagina: A New Biography

“ALWAYS LEAVE THEM WANTING MORE.” – Thelonious Monk
