Svadhisthana is the sacral energy center. Since it is a dual chakra we can find a doublet - image of Svadhisthana at the back side of the body near the basis of the spine. From the front side it is situated at the level of the lower abdomen. It is a center of reasoning and intellect. Educated people express themselves through this center of logic and analysis.

In Sanskrit Svadhisthana means own place of abode. It is the seat of kundalini. Actually, before the Fall of the human microcosm happened, this center had been the seat of kundalini. It is connected to the sex glands and to the urinary system. Vegetarian diet makes it easier for Svadhisthana to be awoken. Svadhisthana keeps locked various data on our former incarnations. It is a storehouse of unconscious mental contents. To awake it means to face the not-so-pleasant records that bring plenty of emotions that need to be assimilated - a rather painful process. Svadhisthana's awaking also brings the quality of desirelessness, i.e., the consciousness the not even 1000 lives would be enough for us to fulfill all our desires. This is the center where the consciousness of ourselves and others awakes. Take a look here for additional information about this energy center.
