Humans are endowed with the unique ability to create things that can affect nature and civilization. But not everything that we have created or created so far is harmless. Also, our creations are not in complete balance and harmony with nature or to improve the world.
Imagine a world in which everything that has been created is beautiful, inspiring, joyful to experience and extremely useful, with no unwanted residual effects on nature.
If the Swadisthana chakra of every person in this world were fully balanced, that would be exactly the result. Let's examine the unique and practical aspects of the power behind this chakra and how we can use it in our lives.
It is through the Swadishthana chakra that inspiration is born and creative energy is generated. Swadisthan also regulates attention and our ability to discern and assimilate pure knowledge.
It is located in the aortic plexus above the sacral bone. It represents the power to create everything that constitutes our existence and the existence of the universe itself. Physiologically, it regulates and takes care of the function of our liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas and the female reproductive organs.
Intuitive knowledge vs. cognitively assimilated information
As we grow up, our education, life experiences, and any information we cognitively process give us the knowledge to lead our lives and build our intelligence and maturity. And while this type of knowledge is essential, there is also an innate source of intuitive knowledge within us. This is a storehouse of wisdom and universal intelligence that can be tapped. Some may also refer to it as a source of creative inspiration.
Man's actions to create something combine both intuitive knowledge and cognitively assimilated intelligence and experience. It is almost impossible to determine how much of each could be used on an activity. However, we know that these groundbreaking inventions, solutions, and ideas, driven by human intuition or genius, can change the world much more than just the blueprints, designs, and structured thinking.
The essence of the Swadisthan chakra is that it helps us use our intuitive intelligence much more extensively and to the point where this begins to shape our decisions and actions. The beauty and creativity of nature seen in so many of her wonderful creations is evident in everything we do or create. In addition, we do not burden ourselves when we rethink or over-analyze our solutions and work. We have much more energy to do much higher quality work with much less stress and energy. And the result of our actions has no unintended consequences or harmful effects on anyone or anything.
Among other aspects driven by the Swadisthana chakra are our creative instincts, a deeper appreciation for beauty, aesthetics and creation, the power of inspiration and idea generation, pure attention and intellectual awareness.
Most importantly, the Swadisthana chakra enables us to gain true spiritual knowledge directly from the source of that knowledge in this universe, a part of which also exists deep within us. Access to this superior knowledge is very different from accumulating spiritual interpretations or concepts through reading books or from the views of those considered to be spiritual or religious experts.
The Swadisthana chakra creates openness to experience (curious, creative, intellectual and open-minded) and the appreciation for art, music, culture and philosophy. It also creates curiosity and a desire to learn and get pure knowledge. Innovation-seeking, exploratory excitability is also stimulated by the power of this chakra.
