Its corresponding element is fire (tejas tattva), and when this inner fire is balanced, it grants self-confidence, optimism, perfect health, excellent digestion, and a high energetic level, which allows a person to work hard without tiring easily.

Svadhisthana Chakra is the second center of force and lies 3-4 cm above the genital area. This center of force is responsible for the sexual energy and creativity.
When Svadhisthana Chakra is balanced, one can experience wellness, pleasure, abundance, and joy. An imbalance in this chakra may lead to emotional instability, sexual dysfunction, depression, fear of change, or addictions.
