The catch at Svadhisthana Chakra is the short duration of the satisfaction in comparison to the long period of craving. At the level of consciousness of the second chakra, success gives short satisfaction, after which the restless imagination wakes up, invents a new goal, charges a new object of desire, and enslaves man until it reaches it, to receive again but a short satisfaction, until another childish desire awakens and tortures him again.
People who live life through the second chakra are lacking a center, and they live their lives around other people, be it their family, their leaders, their bosses, their idols. They search for meaning in orbiting others. People at this level are like satellites and they need an external center to give meaning to their lives.
They have a strong sexual urge, they live in fantasies all the time, and they find joy and peace only when their urges are fulfilled: the people of the second chakra.

BONUS for the Advanced: Paranormal Powers
The third eye is also the center of paranormal powers. Once you give a lot of energy and attention to this area, you will meet paranormal powers whether you intend to do so or not. The most common phenomena to appear first are telepathy and clairvoyance, which are the direct perception of certain subtle energies and subtle realities, normally unseen by the eye, becoming visible for the third eye.
The symbolic representation of the third eye is a lotus with 96 petals, 48 on each side. In the center of the lotus there is the famous mantra “aum” who is considered in the East the sound, the logos, from which the whole world was created. This primordial, universal vibration created from itself all frequencies, and is still the central axis of the entire manifestation. Mental repetition of this mantra gradually activates the third eye and attunes the human being to the tremendous universal energy of this mantra.
Attention: caffeine, white sugar, and hours in front of the tv or computer screen can block your third eye. Here we present two effective exercises for opening the sixth chakra. The possible results: phenomenal memory, stopping the flow of thoughts, clairvoyance, and a deep insight into ourselves.
I walked into the first day of Tantra Immersion with an open mind and came out six days later with an open heart. The journey through yoga, guided meditation, and lectures on the principles of Tantra I had signed up for turned out to be much more than what was advertised.
When Anahata Chakra is strong, the search for a lover is a search which is filled with a sense of satisfaction, of wholeness, of peace. It’s the quest of a king wishing to share his wealth with another person. In order to turn from a beggar to a king, the Tantra teachers offer a simple method for those who don’t yet know how to give love to learn how to love.
Love in the heart chakra has a spontaneous self sacrifice. People at this level do not calculate what they give, they are giving. In the same way that a flower doesn’t condition giving its beauty and scent, people at this level give love to everyone around them. Due to this fact, they don’t get hurt or close if somebody rejects their love.
