A couple of weeks ago, we talked about the first or root chakra which brings about stability and grounding. While it is necessary and important to have a sense of safety and security, it is just as vital to be free and mobile. This is where the second chakra comes into play.
The second chakra or energy center is located in the low belly and encompasses the organs with in the pelvis. If it is off balance or the energy is not flowing in a healthy manner then you may experience the following: chronic low back pain, sciatica, ob/gyn issues, pelvic pain, sexual potency, urinary troubles, blame, guilt, money problems, power and control in a one-on-one relationship, creativity issues, troubles with ethics and honor in relationships
To return a flow to the second chakra you may find the following useful:
Meditate on water; imagine drinking it, bathing in it, floating on it, standing in the rain, and returning the the womb.
Using awareness and breath, open the hips with some hip openers (stick figures of lots of poses) or click on 'slideshow' here.
Remember to finish all practices with 5-10 minutes laying on the floor and relaxing the spine.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
