the sacral chakra

The second chakra is the sacral chakra, represented by the color orange. The word sacral relates both to the back of the pelvis, as well as the word "sacred". Looking at the front of a person, the sacral chakra would be located at around the bellybutton.

The sacral chakra governs the creative and relational energies. If your sacral chakra is in balance, then you find yourself on an even keel when you relate to people. You find yourself able to pursue your creative hobbies, to write, paint, sing or dance.

If your sacral chakra is out of balance, this could cause you to have roller coasters of emotions - perhaps being too obsessive about someone, or perhaps falling into deep despair over issues that really are not that bad. It could cause you to have problems feeling or working creatively. fertility or menstrual issues are related to imbalances in this chakra as well.

To balance, refresh and nourish the second chakra, eat orange food. All the orange squashes, including pumpkin, sweet potatoes, carrots and nasturtium flowers are examples of orange foods, as well as the most obvious, oranges. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg are examples of "orange" spices. At least one serving of an orange food each day will support the work of your second chakra. If you are feeling unbalanced in any of the areas related to this chakra, try eating more orange food in addition to other types of chakra work.
