The Sacral Chakra
The chakra are energy centres in our body. There are seven major energy centres located inside the body along the spine.
The Sacral chakra is the second chakra. The colour orange is attributed to this centre.
The Sacral centre affects the reproductive area of the body. It is centred in from the navel and about five centimetres (two inches) below the navel.
Orange crystals aid this area. Carnelian is a lovely deep orange crystal that benefits this area.
Carnelian, worn in the navel can have a beneficial effect on women if they are having period pain.
Orange can be found in some flowers, in the sunset, in bushfires and also in some food like oranges, carrots, pumpkin and sweet potato. To strengthen this area, eat these orange foods. Apricots and peaches and mango are fruits that can be eaten in this colour range. All these foods are gluten free foods.
Orange is a warm colour. It is made up of red and yellow. In art it is known as a complementary colour. The colour it compliments is blue. Blue is the colour of the Throat chakra. The throat chakra and the Sacral chakra are connected.
Burnt orange or terracotta is sometimes worn by women in winter. This makes sense as it is a warming colour. Apricot is the pastel shade of orange.
This colour flower can also be found in the garden. An old fashioned flower is the nasturtium. Its bright orange flowers bring life to the garden bed. Other orange flowers are strelitzia, Iceland poppies, knifophia, arctosis and geum. Having these in your garden is a great way to introduce the colour into your life. Plants with orange flowers are usually very hardy and do well in the heat.
Think about where this colour fits into your life.
