The Sacral Chakra: Orange: “I Feel”

 

The second chakra is the seat of one’s creativity, sexuality, and interpersonal relations, and not surprisingly—given the passionate nature of this chakra—the element associated with the second chakra is Fire. It is associated with the color Orange, whose key phrase in Color Therapy is “I Feel.” The secondary color for this chakra is Brown.

The sacral Chakra governs the area in which it is located (2 inches or 5 cm below the navel): the reproductive system, including the gonads that secrete sex hormones such as testosterone and estrogen, the genitals, all the sex organs, the prostate and the spleen. This is where your attitudes about sexuality, and also about yourself and others, is located.

Caroline Myss says that it is not by accident that we have always attached our weapons around the hips, whether they be guns or swords: that this is where we feel attacked and feel that we need to defend ourselves.

Interestingly, this is also where our feelings about finances are located. (Lower back pain often indicated financial worries.)

Small children tend to have balanced second chakras, especially if they are not in abusive households: they are very creative and curious and full of energy.

 

If you have a balanced second chakra, you likely feel creative, spontaneous, passionate, enthusiastic, optimistic, energetic and tolerant.

You might be family-oriented, or like inviting friends to your home. Your expressions flow freely but you are not over-emotional. You enjoy intimacy and have no problems with your sexuality.

If you have an underactive Sacral Chakra, you are not very open with people, you might feel socially “stiff” or be uncomfortable with the idea of sex. Someone with an overactive second chakra may be very emotional all the time or come on too strong sexually.

To correct an under-active Sacral Chakra, use orange stones or the color Orange.

To balance an over-active second chakra, use the color Blue or blue stones, as this is the complementary color.

 

Some of the stones associated with this chakra are: Carnelian, Orange Agate, Orange Calcite, Fire Agate, Tangerine Quartz, and Smokey Quartz.

 

In Sound Therapy, the note “D” is used to balance the Sacral Chakra.
