Witnessing Mother Nature’s creation from the balcony is a truly inspiring way to start the day. While overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, I watched the sky light up over the gorgeous water, the tropical landscape glowed, and the faint sound of the surf touched my ears.
The second chakra is associated with water and is located in the sacral plexus or abdomen.This chakra is also known as Svadhisthana-which translates as “one’s own place”. Anodea Judith writes that we should stand in our own place within this chakra and define our sexual and emotional issues in a way that is suitable to our individual character.
I feel great peace, pleasure and fulfillment in the presence of an ocean or a large scenic lake. It should not surprise me that water affects me in this way as pleasure is the motivating principle in the second chakra. Calm, content emotions start to consume me as I walk along the shore. The tide summons me to jump into the surf so it can wash away worries and fears.
I’m thinking that my last stop (or home) on this Earth will need to be close to beautiful, swim-able water.
