Why is the Second Chakra Referred to by Both "Sacral" and "Svadhisthana"?

The second energy center of the Chakra system is commonly known by two distinct names. Hindu practitioners historically referred to this chakra as "Svadhisthana." However, in English, it is more widely recognized as the "Sacral Chakra."

Both yogis and Hindus consider an understanding of the Chakras as a vital component of a content and balanced life. The Sacral Chakra possesses its unique symbolism, whether we use the English word or the traditional label "Svadhisthana." But how did this word come about?

Svadhisthana = Svad + Sthana, where "Svad" translates to one's own, and "Sthana" denotes abode. The combination of these words forms the designation for the second chakra in sequence - Svadhisthana. The meaning of this word is thus clear, emphasizing energies related to one's inner desires and emotions.

In English, however, Svadhisthana is better known as the Sacral Chakra. This name aptly describes its location, situated in the lower abdomen, just below the navel. It unlocks creativity, inner emotions, and our own intimacy. It is the chakra of creative energy and sexuality.

Regardless of what we call it, whether using the English term or the ancient word, its power remains the same. It is considered an energy crucial for fostering balance, creativity, and supporting the right emotions in the life of every individual.

How does a blocked Sacral Chakra manifest itself?

How do we feel if the second chakra is blocked? An unbalanced, blocked, or in any way damaged sacral chakra manifests itself in cold behavior towards others. Confidence in oneself is falling. We can no longer explore where our life is headed. Our joy, vitality and energy is suppressed by feelings of guilt, uncertainty, shyness, pessimism and mistrust. If we struggle with an unbalanced sacral chakra, problems also arise in the partner relationship, but also in other relationships that surround us.

People who struggle with an sacral Chakra disharmony often tend to trust toxic people. You create such friendships that rather harm and hurt you. However, an unbalanced sacral chakra also manifests itself through physical pain. It affects the digestive organs, and back pain or persistent digestive problems may also occur. Physical pains can also appear in the lower abdomen where the sacral chakra is located. All these negative feelings that we mentioned can be the result of a blocked sacral chakra.

Unblocking, unlocking or balancing Svadhisthana chakra

So how to unblock the sacral chakra if we feel the above symptoms? It is very important to let positive energy into life. We have to tune in positively, detach ourselves from everything that pulls us back, that depresses us. The creativity that we neglected in life must now be brought to the surface, because the sacral chakra is also closely connected with our creative side of personality.

If you've been thinking about a new hobby to satisfy your creative mind lately, don't wait any longer and take steps to satisfy your curiosity and heal your sacral chakra. Your intuition wants to tell you that it is time to detach the sai from negative emotional energy and time to heal an imbalanced sacral chakra.

In a normal day, create space for positive thinking. Make enough time not only for others but especially for yourself, and dedicate this free time to your hobbies, devote free time to creative activities. The joy of creation supports the sacral chakra because it nurtures desire, love, passion, even spontaneity and expands your healthy expectations. Revive your senses, harmonize body and soul. A healthy sacral chakra helps clear energy blocks, and helps us see the world around us in new colors.

To strengthen the correct activity of the sacral chakra, discover yoga, and practice at least 1 sun salutation every day, which will stimulate the metabolism and caress your psyche.

Learn also conscious breathing, where during inhalation and exhalation notice the movement of air through your lungs and your whole body. Repeat to yourself what a strong, beautiful and bright personality you are. Realize how much you do for others, what a great person you are. Work on yourself, on your growth, and make plans for the near future. The active rest you give your body will stimulate not only the sacral chakra, but also your overall life and your emotional relationships.
