Steps for healing the Svadhisthana Chakra:

Avoid the Challenge of Grasping-

The most important aspect in maintaining the health of the Svadhisthana Chakra is balance. You can easily become the slave of sensations and passions. We need to recognize and to appreciate the experience of “Now”, the present moment.

Sometimes we may find difficult to fully embrace the pleasure of life`s experiences and still to remain in balance. But that is a learning process, and in order to be able to maintain a healthy Svadhisthana Chakra, we need to learn balance in life. Ignoring this lesson can cause an unusual type of attachment , up to an obsessive behavior.

Express Your Emotions-

Svadhisthana Chakra healing is a long term process, taking into consideration that this chakra is the center of the emotions. And we all know that we carry our unexpressed emotions in our soul, during life. Consequently, this circle of experiences transforms us little by little into emotions manipulators.

Emotions are the main way we express our feelings: happiness, sadness, joy, compassion, gratitude, frustration. We need to learn how to fully express our emotions in order to dissolve energetic blockages in the Svadhisthana Sex Chakra.

Get rid of the shame and guilt-

Traumatic experiences, contradictory values and a strict education may lead to the feeling of shame and guilt around the pleasure in life. Repressed sexuality generates a serious imbalance in the Svadhisthana Chakra, making it over or under active. Therefore, starting with small pleasure experiences might pave the way to healing big wounds.

Restore the Enjoyment of Life`s Pleasures- 

This pleasure enjoyment can be gained due to dissolving the shame and guilt in your soul. Learn to feel the joy provided by the awareness in the present moment.

Water experiences and awareness-

Water is the corresponding element for the Svadhisthana Chakra. Any water experience related to water is benefic for healing the 2nd chakra. As a meditation and as a healing exercise, think about flowing water and associate it`s behavior with human emotions.

Water from a river rushes its flow to reunite with the calm water. Similarly, our emotion rush themselves to go out of our body and reunite with the Universal Collective emotion. But the river leaves strong mark on the land it flows. Emotions also leave deep marks in our souls.

 Start being aware of your emotions , balance them, and dissolve any guilt in your soul

  1. greetings,
    the 6 petal water element chakra as a VARUN DEV GOD of water=swadhisthan chakra….
    there is a possibility that this can be replaced by 5 prana vayus. separating water.
    e.g. prana apana samana vyana udana…
    thus making 4 petals mooldhara chakra as five elements e.g.earth water fire void space..thus 5 elements and 5 pranas = 10 petals Navel air god Shiva / shakti..
    = born again experience 5 wet 5 dry..
    mirror mage is male/female reproduction…new creation/kundalini re birthing

  2. Namaste,

    More ever Upanishads state that,
    1 prana apana push pull each other,
    2 yoga= merging of prana apana samana..
    verse 1.5 yoga sikha Upanishad..mind vanishes when merging takes place..
    brain fluid becomes fiber optic conducts light thus air and light delight….

    I introduce myself as a male Hindu,long years kundalini re birthing practitioner.
    you seem to be a scholar authority having expertise,please correct me..
    palms together mkyogi

    1. Namaste
