Situated immediately above Mooldhara Chakra, the second of the seven main chakras, Swadhishthana Chakra is also known as the sex chakra. ‘
Swa’ in Sanskrit means ‘one’s own’ and ‘adhishthana’ means ‘residence, which makes the meaning of Swadhishthan as ‘one’s own residence’.
This chakra is symbolized by a six petal lotus and a beej mantra ‘vam’.
It is located at the level of the pelvic bone in the front side of the body.
This chakra controls the sex organs, the bladder and the urethra.
This chakra relates to the unconscious mind and the samskaras (mental impressions). This is the chakra that dictates the way most people express themselves in the world.
This chakra controls the pleasurable sensations and the drive to obtain pleasures through food, sex, etc.
The over-activity in this chakra results in food addiction or sex addiction or mental follies such as disdain, false knowledge, etc.
The under-active Swadhishthana chakra results in urinary problems, impotence, sterility, etc.
People who have lost mental awareness and stability have depleted Swadhishthana chakra.
If you want to control your addictions or wanna lose weight then you should make efforts to purify your Swadhishthana Chakra.
Or if you intend to focus your mind away from pleasures and temptations then you should start from balancing your Swadhishthana chakra.
This charm is a beautiful reminder to inspire you to do just that.
