Orange represents the Sacral chakra or Svadhisthana. This is the second of the seven primary chakras and deals with pleasure and emotionality.
It is located about three inches below the navel and can encompass the sexual organs.
The orange colour of the Sacral chakra gives us hints of its creative, sensual nature – but if you want a full rundown of the Sacral chakra, you’ll have to read on!
Orange Sacral Chakra
The Sacral chakra deals with our emotions, creativity and sensual awareness.
Some have called it the “teenager chakra”, because of the wild emotionality, intense sexuality and unbound creativity associated with its overactivation. In many ways, an overly activated Sacral chakra can turn us into teenagers.
When the Sacral chakra is in balance, it can glow orange around the navel and genital region – though for women it is usually the ovaries rather than the genitals.
When over-activated, the aura may turn bright orange. When blocked, this orange might get muddy or grey (or even disappear entirely!).
Orange Chakra Problems
Problems can occur in the Sacral chakra the same way that they occur in any other chakra.
These problems can result in the following symptoms:
Addiction. Issues with the Sacral chakra can cause you to feel reliant on substances to attain pleasure – though not all dependencies are to drugs, some are to people, video games, television etc.
Extreme emotions. This can be either being wildly emotional, or rather emotionless. Both of these indicate a problem in regulating emotions.
Extreme sexuality. Either a lack of sexual desire, or way too much of it.
Living in a dream world. In other words, excessively losing yourself to fantasies and daydreams – enough that it impacts your quality of life.
All of these problems find their root in the Sacral chakra and in an inability to regulate pleasure-seeking desire.
The ability to deny yourself pleasure for your own good or the good of others is what separates us from the animals, and not being able to do that can cause you to live like one.
Orange Chakra Meditation
In order to heal a problematic Sacral chakra, you can use chakra healing meditation.
This might be necessary if there is a significant change in the amount of orange in your aura, or if the shade of that orange because darker or muddier.
