The Silence Series: Chakra Colors For Meditation – Svadhisthana (Orange)

As we look within the centered Self, we find … All That Is….

The second chakra is closely associated with the Self or Soul. It is an energy chakra that promotes the reproductive system and assimilation. This chakra’s location is centered in the pelvic region. It governs our sexuality, sensations, appetite and our family associations. Svadhisthana means the Self’s dwelling place. This is a powerful energy center that promotes our sexual expression and creative impulses. It is associated with the sense of taste.

As you continue your practice, move your attention from the first chakra into the second. Visualize the color orange and quietly repeat the mantra Vam … Vam … Vam.


Breathe in the color orange

 Peace, Love, and Light to All….

    • I too can “feel” the emotion of the piece. The whole process of creating it and meditating on connection to our practice is uplifting. Thanks for continuing to support my work Yamyah.

    that is true, Walter. As a general rule, we “become” & connect to which our focus is on at a given time. I believe that just by meditating on the meditation itself is healing.
