The Sacral Chakra is the second Chakra. It is associated with the element of water, meaning fluidity, flow, movement, and aliveness.
The Sanskrit name of this Chakra is Svadhishthana. It is comprised of the syllables sva (= self) and shthana (= place), which may be roughly translated to “one’s own dwelling place” or vital force.
This Chakra is considered to be the place of our basic emotions, desires, sexual energy, and much of our subconscious. Its main themes is the this energy center of sexuality, creativity, and sensuality. Svadhishthana is a link between the male and female aspects, between the Sun and the Moon. Motivated by pleasure, it’s the driving force for the enjoyment of life through the senses. Whether it’s auditory, through taste, touch, or sight. Opening your sacral chakra allows you to “feel” the world around and in us. As such, it’s an important energy center at the foundation of our feeling of well-being.
The Sacral Chakra Symbol is an orange lotus with six petals. At its center, we find two concentric circles, that together form a crescent moon shape. This reference to cycles appear again as the two concentric circles forming the moon. Not only are circles itself a symbol of cycles, the moon they form is yet another famous symbol of cycles. It in connection with a feminine quality. These cycles refer to constant movement, never-ending change, a continuous stream of phenomena and experience. This invites us to jump into this flow without grasping unto any experience in particular, but rather finding joy in the flowing itself.
Traditionally, the lotus flower image is symbolic of the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
While red is the color of awakening, orange is the color of activity and aliveness. Interestingly, orange is also the color of purity or rather purified energy in the Hindu tradition, and monks and ascetics usually wear this color.
