second chakra (sacral center, splenic chakra)

The second chakra is located 1-2 inches below the navel or branching to left side at spleen and most people have a concentration of orange energy in this area. The color associated is orange and the antidote is indigo. The tone is o as in home and the note is d. The element is water and the sense is taste. The statement is "I desire". The second chakra is about friendliness, creativity, sexuality and emotions. It governs our sense of self-worth, confidence in our creativity and ability to relate to others in an open and friendly way. Orange is a sociable color. This chakra is the center of gut-level intuition and since a woman's womb is here it may explain why this is often called women's intuition. It is a basic visceral feeling. It is also the sexual center which is why women tend to be emotional about sexual relations. The orange energy gives us the ability to reach out, to radiate, to extend ourselves. It gives us the forcefulness to reach up to our heart and to our soul. Balanced energy in the second chakra characteristics are friendly, optimistic, concerned for others, sense of belonging, creative, imaginative, intuitive, attuned to your own feelings, gutsy sense of humor, and the highest goal is to have a wonderful orgasm. Excessive energy could be emotionally explosive, aggressive, overly ambitious, manipulative, caught up in illusion, overindulgent, self-serving, obsessed with thoughts of sex and see people as sex objects, requiring frequent sexual gratification. Deficient energy could be extremely shy, timid, immobilized by fear, overly sensitive, self-negating, resentful, bury your emotions, burdened by guilt, distrustful, clinging sexual energy and frigid or impotent. The glands and organs influenced by the second chakra are the skin, mammary glands, female reproductive organs and kidneys. Illnesses and ailments to be treated with orange are kidney weakness, constipation, muscle cramps and spasms, lack of energy, allergies, and repression/inhibition. The tiger's eye is a great stone for opening this chakra. Children are often drawn to the tiger's eye. It speaks to the sense of touch and gives comfort through its cool smoothness. It connects you to the rich browns of the earth and blends that energy with the gold of the Divine Light. Bring this stone to your third eye and it will help you to see the best in everyone and to feel happy about walking on the path of life. This is a stone of courage, giving strength and endurance. This is a sensuous stone often favored as a gift between lovers. Carnelian is a red-orange agate which generates warmth and relaxation, with a strong masculine energy and is good for the sexual organs and energy. It is the ginseng of the gemstones. Children are drawn to this stone because it gives strength, humor and optimism. This is a stone of worldly success. It grounds you in the present and gives protection against negative energy. It is fiery, intense and assertive and will enhance your self-confidence. I believe the most sensual asset a person has is their confidence; that twinkle in a woman's eye or the swagger of a man. I also believe if you wish to know what if feels like to be close to God, just have an orgasm. Happy endings. xo
