Swadishthana Chakra

The second chakra is represented by a six-petaled lotus and it is circular in shape. It is located in the area of the genital organs and is called swadhisthana chakra from "sva" or vital force and "adhisthana" meaning abode. The seed letter is "vam". Balance in this chakra is manifested by balance and appropriateness in sexual activity, as well as by fertility (when appropriate) and creativity.This is the center of pure, steady attention and power of concentration. It is the one which connects us to the inner source of inspiration, and enables us to experience the beauty around us. The pure knowledge given by this chakra is not mental, but it is direct perception of the Reality, that can be felt in our palms and indicates our subtle blockages.  

On the physical level it looks after our liver, kidneys, and the lower abdomen.
