The sacral center, also known as the second chakra, is located about 2 inches below your navel and is the focus of your earliest and most fundamental emotions. Your basic sense of acceptance or rejection, worthiness or unworthiness; your sense of belonging to a group or family or of being alone in the world; your ease or trouble in connecting with your Higher Power; all of these relate to how well your second chakra is working. Furthermore, through the spleen, the second chakra acts as a pumping mechanism for the physical energy the first chakra pulls in from the root, and for the emotional energy to which it has access.
This Chakra is associated with the Adrenals and controls all solid parts - the spinal column, bones, teeth, nails; also controls blood and building of the cells, kidneys, and the bladder.
A healthy second chakra is a sign of emotional integrity and security, healthy sexuality and creativity. We are optimistic, friendly, courageous, and sensitive to others' needs. We feel that we belong, and yet we are not afraid of being taken over when we merge with someone else. If you have a difficult, unsatisfactory social life and have difficulty getting in touch with your own true feelings; if you're distressingly over-sensitive, or chronically bad-tempered and resentful, or prone to burying your emotions for months and then erupting with them; if you're often laid low by parental or religious guilt ("Watchdogs" of morality, low on love because of a contracted second chakra, jump on other people who are exploring and enjoying the variety of life. Their efforts feed right in to the guilt of dysfunction), or immobilized by fears of injury, disapproval, isolation or spirit possession, it is the second chakra that needs attention. An out-of-balance second sets off power-mongering in the third chakra and survival fears in the first chakra. Its health is therefore pivotal in the physical realm.
The kidneys, which absorb and detoxify fear, and the spleen, which contains and processes worry, are both indicators of the second chakra's condition. So is the skin. Skin should be elastic -not puffy, or dry and scaly. In the same way, the boundaries of your emotional life should be resilient, neither bloated nor cracked and shrunken, so that you can make the changes required of you from day to day and year to year. When the second chakra is fully functioning and discriminating, clairsentience (becoming one with another person) provides information that is presently useful and also prophetic.
We need to recognize and respect the emotions that move through the second chakra. It is also essential that we distinguish between our own feelings and those we pick up from others - repeatedly through close association, or haphazardly on the street or in a store. For those who are aware of becoming more sensitive to the energies around you, be extra perceptive at parties, meetings, and mass gatherings. When necessary, be extra protective, so that you do not get drawn into an atmosphere of fear, depression, hysteria or violence.
*I need to note here that there is very little danger in picking up positive vibrations, feelings which elevate you. At the same time, if you have the gift of clairsentience, you must learn good grounding to compensate for explorations into the consciousness of other people and other beings.
Failure to deal with the entire range of emotional demands and to support their integrity invites paranoia and high blood pressure. Pancreatic ailments also reflect an undernourished second chakra. diabetes begins as fear of emotional neglect, escalating into fear of total abandonment, and may be handed on from parent to child when their energy fields intermingle.
At the opposite end of the emotional spectrum from fear is trust. Although trust relates to our dealings with others, it originates within ourselves as a sense of security and personal validity. I always say to my clients, "Don't worry about being able to trust others. Learn first to trust yourself: the desires that are heartfelt, the thoughts and actions that fulfill you, the responses that are emotionally satisfying."
