The second chakra is about friendliness, creativity, sexuality, emotions,and intuition. It has to do with one's self-worth, confidence in one's own creativity, and one's ability to relate to others in a friendly, open way. This is all influenced by how emotions were expressed or repressed in one's family during childhood.
The second chakra is one of the centers of the emotions and is in the large intestines. One who is emotionally imbalanced may experience diarrhea or constipation. The second chakra is the center of physical prowess. This area is also known as the tan t'ien and the area. People are taught to run their energy through here for things like martial arts and Reiki.
