The Swadisthan Chakra is suspended like a satellite on a chord from the Nabhi Chakra, and moves around the Void area giving sustenance to the ten petals of the Void (which represent Ten Commandments). When the Kundalini rises, it passes into the Nabhi Chakra first and then along the chord to enlighten the Swadisthan and then returns to the Nabhi Chakra to continue the journey to the crown of the head. In the course of evolution, man translated his need for shelter into the building of homes. As his sense of aesthetics developed
he continued to improve on these forms of shelter (until eventually architecture came about). This creativity evolved into abstract form, where he could imagine, project and create an image, which had no previous material counterpart.
From this burgeoning aestheticism came the creative arts.


The fundamental quality of the Swadisthan Chakra is that of creativity. It is here that the energy for our creativity is generated. After our realization we discover that the true key to creativity is in achieving the state of thoughtless awareness (nirvichara samadhi) through our meditations.From this we discover that all the beauty of the creation is reflected within us like a still and silent lake. Once we locate this pool and beauty we can become the channel for it. We become the creative instrument of the collective unconscious, without ego to distort the purity of the art. We become, as Wordsworth says “a heart that watches and receives.”
The process of creativity in whatever form draws on the qualities of the Swadisthan Chakra. If this process is accomplished in a balanced state (i.e. using the energies of the central or Sushumna channel in the subtle system) then the result is spiritually enhanced, we can say that it had “heart”. After realization this is emphasized, and the resulting creation can become an inspired work. We can see this by looking at the
classic works from artists of the past such as Mozart and Michelangelo who were born as evolved realized souls. Works of this quality are immortal, and provide joy and beauty that define the whole epoch.
this process and exhausts this center. The Swadisthan also looks after the liver (along with the Nabhi Center). If the Chakra is having to cope with excessive thinking, then the other organs it is supposed to look after are neglected. The liver is particularly susceptible to this neglect. Problems here are indicated by tingling in the thumb and middle finger of the right hand, or by prickling sensations in the hands.
The liver has a particular importance in that it is the seat of our Attention (chitta). Attention should not be confused with thought, which comes from ego (our I-ness) and superego (our past conditionings and upbringing). Attention is pure concentration minus thought/mental activity. For example when we look at the flower we put our attention on it (i.e. observe it). However we will also think about it (“that’s pretty I wonder
what it is called” etc.) Attention has no associated thoughts – it is pure concentration/observation/witnessing. A balanced liver sustains and nourishes our Attention and filters it by scanning out any impurities and external clutter. From this purified Attention comes the peace and stillness that we obtain in our meditation. The liver is susceptible to overheating (via alcohol or other stimulants) which has a detrimental effect on our Attention,
which ultimately weakens our meditations and so on.

A weakened Swadisthan may show up in a number of ways:
diabetes, heart disease and associated problems, difficulty meditating, irritability. Interest in spiritualism and occult practices will also have a detrimental effect on this center. If we delve into these realms we lead the Attention into the collective subconscious areas, and we leave ourselves open to increased lethargy, and maybe even hallucinations and increased overall negativity.

  1. JSMJ beautiful information.

    I would like to share an instant method of increasing vibrations. please try and if you feel changes in a month then share it with others
    keep making swastika at your left and right hand. When you start doing this then the vibration flow will start. I had no vibrations in my hand before starting and now the vibrations are in abundant in hands. please try it
