Orange: Sacral or Svatisthana Chakra. Water, Creativity

Orange from Rainbow Meditations

Just above the Root Chakra, in the shape of a six petal lotus, our Sacral chakra sits at our naval and pelvic bone, where our flow of life resides. The Sacral Chakra comes to give emotional balance to the strength of the Root Chakra. Kyle Gray in his book Raising your vibration notes:“If the sacral chakra were in nature, it would be the water replenishing the soil and allowing the seeds to germinate and grow.” Highly connected with the element of Water Sacral is all about the flow- the flow of emotions, relationships, actions. How we deal with the everyday chores and challenges. Do we panic? Or we allow the situations to unfold and we go with it? If there is something we don’t enjoy doing but it needs to be done, how do we react? Do we moan, complain, get angry? Or we just get on with it knowing that at some point it will all end and we can go on with more fulfilling activities? The Sacral Chakra is also highly associated with our reproductive organs; it is where our primal instincts turn to passion. As the energy of empowerment rises from the Root Chakra if it arrives at a healthy open Sacral Chakra it turns to passion, creativity, dreams for the future. This is where sex, the most primal instinct of procreation, becomes fun, joyful and passionate. When the Sacral Chakra is open and balanced it brings flow of all lovely experiences, people and things in our life. Our relationships with people are easier, we become more tolerant and understanding of others. We don’t get hung up on little things and we let the grudges go.

Sacral Chakra is not only significant for the creation of new life, but also for all the creative ideas that make the world go round. Music, art, movies, poetry, as well as inventions, are part of a healthy Sacral Chakra. In our everyday life cooking, creating a beautiful garden, knitting a jumper, making a cardboard train with your children, building castles in the sand, DIY are all part of our creativity. The need to make something new from scratch is an undeniable part of humanity that has led our world to many nice things and many bad ones as well… but why that happens will be discussed later on.

Our inner child also lives in our Sacral Chakra, holding the memory of our childhood, the fears and angers as well as the love and cuddles we received as children. These memories, these experiences are responsible for our traits and ways as adults. Do you carry unhealed emotions from the past? Have you made peace with your family? Do you carry grudges that haunt you until today? Have you allowed your negative experiences to teach you something, or you have accepted their imprint on your energetic field, weighting down your emotional self?

Pause for a moment and think how you treat your Sacral Chakra. Do you allow the flow to come in? Do you allow for money to come to you and go out? Are you overgenerous or too tight with material things? Do you supress your desires (sexual, emotional or material) or you have a tendency to excessiveness and obsession? How easy it is for you to express your emotions? Do you hold everything in or you easily get overwhelmed, going onto panicky, tearful state? Do you still carry negative childhood memories allowing them to stop loving yourself as much as you deserve? How do you connect with others, and how do you allow rewards to come to you? Are you open to receiving material and emotional rewards from others?

Close your eyes, sit comfortable and meditate. Listen to the Meditation Orange, as many times as you like, and really connect with your creation side. See the six petal lotus residing at your naval, sending whirling orange energy to fill your energy field. Look deep into yourself and with all honesty explore your Sacral Chakra patterns, and affirm to balance anything that is not fulfilling to your highest potential, yet maintain and strengthen all these parts that will help you learn and grow in the human life.
