YOGA — Hollis Maloney. Last week I focussed specifically on the second chakra or the Svadishthana Chakra- and it evolved into probably one of the largest collections of information I've ever gathered for a written project. This is a very interesting chakra that is charged with emotion for a lot of people, and I even found myself pulling away from it just when doing my daily writing. Although my goal was to really sift through the shallow end of the chakras, I've discovered that even getting more than ankle deep can be scary.

Regardless, here is what I discovered about the svadhisthana: "Sva" translates to vital force and "adhisthana" translates to abode. It has also been translated as as "one's own place or base," indicating just how crucial this chakra is in our lives. The tasks of the second chakra include allowing for emotional and sensual movement in our life, opening to pleasure, and learning how to "go with the flow. "
