The Swadhisthana Mantra, or the 'Vam' mantra, is associated with the Swadhisthana or sacral chakra.
The Swadhisthana chakra is the second of the seven chakras or energy centers residing in different locations of the human body.
'Sva', in Sanskrit, means 'self' of 'one's own' and 'adhisthana' means 'home'.
The Sanskrit word 'Svad' also means 'taste'. And so this chakra is also associated with pleasure.
The sacral chakra is situated just under the navel, around two inches under it. The sacral chakra is considered to be the energy center for all pleasure.
It influences and connects all your emotions, indulgences, and your sexuality.
Any disharmony in the sacral plexus can create negative feelings and create a sense of withdrawal.
Moreover, if there is a sacral chakra imbalance, it can impact your relationships, your creativity, and your self-confidence.
The Vam sound activates the sacral chakra. It is the seed syllable or beeja mantra of the Swadhisthana chakra or Svadhishthana chakra.
It energizes the whole body as it radiates the power of pleasure and joy for other chakras to function better.
This mantra also transfers the energy from the root chakra to the chakras above.
Chanting the Swadhisthana mantra regularly cleanses your sacral chakra and heals any emotional, sensual, intimate, or creative blockages.
Swadhishthana mantra is part of the Ancient Chakra Healing Meditation Mantras.
