Comments: Problems with the Second Chakra (Sacral) coincide with major traumas between about 4 and 8 years of age. The focus of this chakra returns between 34 and 38 and again between 64 and 68.
Did you undergo a major trauma in your life during this period? Were you abandoned? Did you parents divorce? Traumas during this time are reflected in our ability to be intimate with another human being, to give and receive sexual pleasure and provide comfort and allow ourselves to be comforted.
Likewise, if you have unresolved issues related to sexual abuse or rape, your Sacral Chakra is likely unbalanced.
An Second Chakra Imbalance may manifest as sexual frigidity, guilt, being cold, unapproachable and aloof. On the other hand, a Second Chakra Imbalance may be expressed as being over-sexed, using persons for sexual gratification alone, living a hedonistic lifestyle and battling sexual addictions.
Physical symptoms of a Second Chakra imbalance include problems with the ovaries/testicles, impotence and lymph system problems.
Therapy: Chakra Therapy would include laying the proper gemstone upon the Second Chakra for 5-25 minutes.
Imagine an orange vortex of energy coming from the area between the pubic bone and the naval, emanating forward from your belly. At the same time, think of feeling intimate with another, feeling the warmth of their skin against yours. Imagine providing comfort and pleasure and being comforted and pleasured. Release all guilt relating to sex and realize that sexual intimacy is a natural part of a healthy lifestyle.
