The 2nd chakra is extremely important and powerful, because it is where your self-image forms, where you let the world in and where your power to fulfill all your desires is centered. It is the center of feelings enjoyment and sensuality. The 2nd chakra is the chakra many people struggle with, where you judge yourself, where you deny yourself anything beyond the basic mental, physical and spiritual needs.
The challenge of self-image is influenced by our conditioned society, because often, feelings are not valued. Emotional reactions may be frowned upon because we are supposed to be in control of our emotions. In the desire to be liked and accepted and fulfill society’s need to not ‘lose control’ we disconnect from our bodies and feelings. No wonder we deny ourselves our pleasures, because we disconnect access to our pleasure center. The 2nd chakra is also the hub of creativity and passion. It is located in your pelvis and lumbar. If your 2nd chakra is open and connected you are passionate and present in your body, you are sensual, creative and connected to your feelings.
But if you deny any of the 2nd Chakra power center qualities and made a vow (a deeply hidden belief usually made in your childhood that influences your choices, actions and results today) then you lack passion, creativity, self-esteem and don’t live a turned-on life!

The 2nd column shows you the likely results of not being you (shadow).
An example for this exercise would look like this using number 1.
If you feel your deepest needs and allow yourself to feel your pain and process it,
you would put a 10 next to it.If you made a vow to not feel you deepest needs and tend to others instead
your score would be a 1
