This chakra is about Water, being fluid and adaptable, about pleasure, and about the Right to feel. You have the right to feel the way you feel, to be give and receive pleasure.All emotions have a right to be felt.

Yin & Yang are an excellent analogy of the fluidity and balance of this chakra. The attraction of opposites, the movement and dance they engage in, the fact that there is a little of the other in each one.

Please invites us to expand, while pain generally makes us contract. What brings you pleasure? What hurts you?

The word "emotion" comes from emote which means to move out or to express.

While sex, sexual or sacred union, and sexuality are aspects of this chakra, so is nurturing. Caring for the needs of the body, loving the body, touching the body, feeding the soul.

You have the right to feel, the right to feel the feelings you have.


Please yourself. Touch and be touched. Care for and love the body you inhabit. Nurture it and celebrate it.
