The Sacral Chakra
The Sacral Chakra or Second Chakra is located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity of the body. It is the center of the Life Force of the body.
It is the reservoir of the life force and all life flows out from the sacral chakra. It controls the flow of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body. Gut feelings, intuition, and other “non-linear” communication come from this chakra.
When it is out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex, and frustration and bitterness.
When it is in balance you have grace, feel pleasure in life, enjoy yourself, play, and find you are flexible in both body and mind. You can “go with the flow” of your life and times and do so in good spirits.
Treat imbalance with orange or gold crystals to unblock the energy flow and restore your sense of balance and understanding and appreciation of your place in life.
Carnelian Etheric Body Layout
We use carnelian stones for this work. Carnelian is a form of Quartz that often forms beautiful orange stones. Carnelians are excellent aids for training, coordination of physical exercise programs, and for balancing body energy levels. Carnelians boost a listless attitude and can stimulate the appetite.
Used as a professional support crystal, Carnelian aids architects, builders and construction workers in their creation of master buildings, stimulates power and stamina in athletes and military personnel, establishes form and organization in journalists, and stimulates motivation in salespersons.
Carnelian is a stabilizing crystal, perfect for anchoring in the present. Its high energy helps restore lost vitality and motivation and stimulates creativity for new pursuits. It improves concentration and removes extraneous thoughts in daydreamers, and during meditation.
This stone also protects against envy, rage, and resentment – yours, or from others, and encourages a love of life. It is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind, helping you to trust yourself and your perceptions.
Carnelian alleviates jealousy and possessiveness in relationships and is helpful in overcoming sexual anxieties and eating disorders. It is also beneficial with the male mid-life crisis.
If this mismatch can’t correct itself, the physical body loses some of its organizational flexibility, which can allow disease to take hold.
Such etheric body dislocation may be the reason why in so many cases a serious period of illness follows a few months after significant shock.
- One Carnelian is placed at the throat and one above the top of the head.
- At the level of the sacral chakra, a Carnelian is placed on each side of the body.
- The remaining two stones are put on the midline of the body, one between the legs at about mid-calf level and the last stone near the ankles.
If something seems to be missing but you can’t really describe it, perhaps a bit of orange mixed in your daily life is needed!
