First what’s a chakra?
Chakras are measurable patterns of electromagnetic activity and centers for the reception, assimilation and transmission of life energies.
Each chakra is associated with a color, a sound/note and a part of the body. The seven major chakras run along the spinal cord. They can become out of balance or out of tune over time with emotional and/or physical trauma.
The second chakra is the sacral chakra.
Oh yes, sex is definitely connected to our second chakra! But there is so much more at play here—this chakra sits in the lower abdomen, the color associated with it is orange, and the element is water.
When this chakra is balanced, we have grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment and the ability to accept change. It connects us to others through feelings, desire, sensation and movement. Think of a flowing river moving with ease.
If this chakra is out of balance, we may experience issues with our skin, reproductive organs, kidneys, bladder, circulatory system, lymphatic system and adrenal system; and sexual performance is likely to be negatively effected.
Tone your chakra!
Toning is utilizing the power of the voice by making a vibration with long sustained sounds. The vibrations of these sounds reverberate in a way that is penetrating and can rebalance a chakra that is not functioning at full potential.
Because our bodies are 55-65 percent water, it’s a great conduit for sound vibration, therefore making toning a very effective and powerful way to rebalance the chakra system.
Listen to this Good Vibrations with Kristin podcast to connect with your desires and tone your chakra. In this episode, we also talk about Ravi Varma Lakshmi, the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), fortune and the embodiment of beauty.
Having this chakra spinning with ease is the key to achieving our desires. And desire covers more than sex – it is literally our hopes and dreams. My hopes and dreams always include the Earth as a whole. Yes, I have desires for my own personal self, my children, my husband and friends, but, I dream as Big as possible for the World at large. A peaceful and loving coexistence with our fellows, a clean and honored Earth, a clear and powerful connection with the Divine for all. Those are my big dreams and I need my second chakra in perfect balance to help achieve those dreams…
