SVADHISHTHANA

2. chakra SVADHISTHANA- Sacral chakra

Sva = self
adhishthana = settled (place)
Svadhishthana = own home

It is home to Sarasvatithe goddess of music and art.

Svadhishthana - is the place of the subconscious, which contains all the experiences of our present life since the beginning of our existence in the mother's womb.

It's located at the lower end of the sacrum.
It has six petals, which symbolize bad qualities, that we must overcome to purify this chakra:


1. बं baṃ: 
      wrath

2. भं bhaṃ:    hate

3. मं maṃ:      jealousy

4. यं yaṃ:       cruelty

5. रं raṃ:        lust

6. लं laṃ:        pride

Inward-turned petals are karma.
Outward-facing petalsare a symbol of consciousness.


Inside this lotus is a white moon crescent- it represents the connection of the energy of the moon with water. The moon also relates to the feminine menstrual cycle, never-ending change and constant movement, and the water is also a symbol of hidden danger. Water is loose and pliable, but full of immense power if it gets out of control. It's the same with the energy of the Svadhisthana chakra.

The animal symbol of this chakra is a crocodile - it means callousness, strength, intuitiveness, honor, bravery, creation, danger that is unawakened. Crocodile represents the duality of strength and weakness in all living creatures. Its outer scales are rock-solid, but the alligator's underbelly is one of its most sensitive, vulnerable areas.

If we don't have it under control:

The negative qualities of this chakra that prevent us from developing are: laziness, fear, doubts, vengeance, envy, greed, anger

Negative aspects: thinking, egocentricism, alcohol addiction, poor eating habits, rude behavior


If we have it under control:
