Part 2 – Formation of the Lower Chakra System – Second Chakra.
Before a year has passed, we begin to recognize a duality; there is ‘other’ – mother – and there is ‘me’…and so our second chakra begins to develop. The Sanskrit word for this chakra is Swadhisthana. It is called the Sacral chakra in English. This energy vortex in located about two fingers below the navel and in the reproductive organs and is creative in nature. Now the baby sees that it’s body, it’s fingers and limbs, are separate from mother and from others, and begins to differentiate between themselves and the rest of their small world. When doing energy work with an adult, and contact with their inner child is established, I typically find the child’s age to range between three and seven years old, and these years are when the second chakra is developing. Children from birth to this period are so open and tender that even the ones who seem to have the best home and family life are routinely exposed to traumatic events. To their parents and others such as friends, relatives, and teachers, these usually seem to be the normal childhood experiences, but to the child, they are often very traumatic and scary, and can be imbued with negative energies. Feeling a dark presence such as “the monster under the bed” is a common manifestation during this part of a child’s life. From late pre-birth through this period of second chakra development is when most of the seeds of pain and fear are planted, and they stay within and grow into deeper patterns for the entire lifetime of the individual, unless deep healing is somehow achieved – which is quite rare. Later, after puberty, this potent period of life from about three to seven years of age will coalesce into the inner child, seated in the second chakra.
Deep fear is the most universal core energy I find, and it will often manifest as energetic-sourced pain in the second chakra area of the body. At its core, it seems to be most related to a fear of death.
Although various other aspects of the second chakra are to be found and the inner child is ofttimes not even mentioned in the literature; my own training and experience has shown me that inner child is without a doubt the predominant aspect of this energy center. Of course, sexuality and other important energetic aspects are a part of the second chakra. Still, one must have a real life experience working with chakra-based energy healing to understand the importance of the inner child, and I find much of the Western-based literature about chakras to be second-hand information listing basic colors, stones with affinities for each chakra, and other such references with sparse value. Of course there are wonderful books on this ancient Hindu energetic science, and some of the English literature about them and especially kundalini (life-force or serpent-fire energy) is profound, but it is a scavenger hunt to find the ones that are not superfluous to healing. It was my good luck to attend a real healing mystery school in the mid ’90s that taught through experiential work.
Interestingly, negative parasitic-like fragments of consciousness which I will call ‘entities’ which seem to originate from outside the person and have a rather primitive but separate consciousness from the individual are often attracted to these buried pains and fears, and with the unprotected psychic openness of a child who yields to any source for ‘help’, they enter and find a welcome place to take up residence. Read part 3 on the third chakra for more on this, as this is where they are typically found.
For the many unfortunate children who are not given a mother’s deep love as all children need; for those raised in emotionally cold and dark settings, those with extremely unbalanced or brutal parents or guardians who do not show them love, naturally these energies of pain, fear, abandonment and the like become deeply etched into their psyche and their very being, and the ‘entities’ play a major role. This results in many of the extremes of emotional turmoil we see in people all around us in society, including the psychotic and criminal behaviors we simply cannot fathom.
Voice dialog process is the method I generally use with energies that have individuated consciousness, whether they are originally from ‘outside’ or ‘inside’ the client, and often the phenomena of an energy with a seemingly separate consciousness presents itself as totally self-generated as well. Sub-personalities are a good example of this; for example, the judge, the victim, the seductress, the accuser and so on. Higher aspects such as the inner child, the higher self, guardian angels, and indeed all aspects of a client all can be contacted and worked with using this method. The conference room modality is a wonderful method for getting all these together at once for the purpose of the client’s healing.
The more evolved consciousnesses from ‘outside’, often termed “ET” (for extraterrestrial), the so-called “Grays” and others first popularized by books and movies are a different problem, and are beyond the scope of this article. If you are not having visitations it is a good idea to not even investigate them without a good reason.
The point in working to discharge these “energies” is that none of them are from the Light of God, and the ‘guidance’ they provide is always inferior to the connection with Higher Self and the Divine, which is brought in to replace them in a complete session.
The second chakra is esoterically related to the fifth chakra.
