Learn everything about this Chakra mantra that is known to remove your creative blockages

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.

Meaning of the Mantra

The Vam mantra is considered one of the universal sounds in tantric yoga. Beeja mantras, or 'seed' mantras, unlike most mantras, do not include any mention of the deity.

Instead, the mantra focuses on the energy flow and uses power in the inherent vibrations of the sound 'Vam'.

However, some interpretations consider Vam to be a salutation to the deity of rain and creation, Varun.

The vibrations from the Vam mantra are believed to cleanse and activate the Swadishthana chakra.

The Vam sound is believed to declutter the energy pathways and make subtle body changes in order to create a positive impact.
