Sacral chakra

“Orange is the happiest color.”   Frank Sinatra

Orange is warm color and unlike red it contains the subtle caring properties of the Jang energy. Traditionally it is associated with the autumn season, some holidays and celebrations. In Asia it is an important symbolic color of Buddhism and Hinduism. In relation to food it represents hot spices.

Orange is very positive color and offers emotional strength in difficult times. It enhances our creative talents, self-respect, freedom, optimism and enjoyment of senses.  Positive aspects also include: energy, enthusiasm, sensuality, sexuality, generosity, sociability, pleasure , inventiveness, and constructiveness

It is the color that bind us together. That is why many restaurants use pastel versions of orange to increase the appetite and promote conversations, which in turn encourages guests to have a good time.

Orange and Sacral chakra { Swadhisthana }

Orange is associated with the Sacral chakra, which is situated just below the navel and is the symbol of female energy. It represents the water element and affects the flow of fluids in our physical body. Since water has the power to dissolve, abolish, purify and regenerate Sacral chakra is also associated with our emotions –  our tears of joy and our tears of sorrow. By preventing the free flow of emotions we are blocking this chakra. The color of orange helps to open it by encouraging our energy to move again. When this chakra is functioning to its full potential, a person powers are opened and their sensitivity heightenet.

Sacral chakra stimulates the thyroid gland and governs sex, urinary organs, kidneys, circulation and metabolism. Its endocrine glands are the ovaries and metabolism. Its endocrine glands are the ovaries and testes.
