When you first hear the term Sacral Chakra, it sure does sounds like a legend or an ancient stone. However, in actuality, Sacral Chakra, also known as Swadhistana, comes from Sanskrit and is closely associated with the emotional balance and creativity of an individual. It is below the navel or belly button and regulates our reproductive organs. But, before we divulge into Sacral Chakra and explore its characteristics, we need to understand the system of chakras and why they are crucial for an individual.
The System of Chakras
Chakras are the energy centers located in our bodies. They are known to regulate life energy flow. The word ‘chakra’ in Sanskrit means a ‘wheel’ or a ‘circle.’ Therefore, chakras translate to the ‘wheel of life.’ These chakras or bodily energy openings are connected to our emotional, mental, and physical health and wellbeing. Although there are seven main chakras, the sacral chakra is located in our lower body, related to our sexuality and sensuality.
The Sacral Chakra
The sacral chakra is orange in color, whereas the particular position of the sacral chakra is to correlate with our creativity, sincerity, and sexual energy.
As we know, a chakra is an energy opening, so what is the sacral chakra is blocked. We may experience sexual guilt, frustration, emotional and physical recklessness in our body. To avoid the closure of sacral chakra, it has been associated with stones, which help us to maintain, experience, or perhaps preserve the flow of energy.
The Sacral Chakra Stones
For the record, if you’re looking to balance the sacral chakra, these stones are not a one-stop solution. It would be best if you look after your physical and mental health, maintain a diet, eat well, preferably orange color foods. And then meditate using the following sacral chakra stones:
- Amber Citrine
- Orange Calcite
- Orange Kyanite
- Tangerine Quartz
- Orange Moonstone
- Orange Aventurine
The question, what is so special about these stones? How can they help us reach out to energy openings in our bodies? These stones are not just average showpieces on jewelry sets; they manifest different forms of energy required from time to time.
For example, some of these stones have metaphysical properties like Tangerine Quartz; others have angelic qualities or overall positive energy. Due to their life-altering properties, these stones are famous for healing powers, but that’s not the end of it.
Our objective was to open and activate the sacral chakra, and these stones can help us in doing that. The orange color of these stones is of critical importance, as per Swadhistana, orange is tied to the moon. Therefore orange stones help you to open the sacred sacral chakra and feel the positive energy around it. If you want to access the healing element in chakra stones, you need to use them in a particular way.
These stones, such as orange calcite, are not necessary healing stones. They have cleansing properties, which help us to clear the blockage in the sacral chakra. But here is the thing you can’t just hold the stone in hand, and they’ll magically open the sacral chakra, there is a method, and it can be only successful if your mind is at peace with your body.
