Svadhishthana Chakra (also known as the sacral chakra or abdominal chakra) is the second primary chakra present in the human body. The literal translation of ‘sva’ is self and ‘sthana’ is place; Svadhishthana Chakra is the place where the human consciousness begins and the second phase of human development. It is also said to be the dwelling of the mind or the seat of the subconscious mind. All the life experiences and memories since conception in the womb are stored here. This chakra manifests the development of the personality, after eliminating the consciousness of negative characteristics.
This chakra is symbolically represented as a lotus with six petals, each petal signifying the six negative qualities. The element of Svadhishthana Chakra is water and its color is orange. Its mantra is VAM.
