The second chakra Svadhistana can be translated as “the dwelling place of the self”, and is also known as the creativity and sexuality chakra. A balanced second chakra leads to feelings of wellness, abundance, pleasure, and joy. When it’s out of balance, you may experience emotional instability, fear of change, depression, or addictions.
You can open this chakra with creative expression and by honoring your body, playing like a child, taking creative risks and not caring what people think. The energy of this chakra is feminine, passive, and lunar. The creative energy is expressed through art, music, cooking, gardening, making babies :) — basically, any time we take raw materials (physical or mental) and transform them into something new.
