Sacral Chakra: Orange is for Fertility
“Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the soul’s weather.” ~Martha Graham
Chakras are spiritual centers or energy centers within the human body. There are seven chakras in the body, and each one of them corresponds to a different area. For example, the chakra that is associated with the reproductive area is known as the Swadhisthana chakra. It is oftentimes referred to as the sacral chakra, is located just below your navel and is your chakra of water.
Having roots in Hinduism and Buddhism, the belief is that when chakras become out of balance there is a blockage or possibly it has become overactive or underactive. This can result in different physical, mental, and emotional challenges. There are certain things that you can do to increase the energy flow of your chakras and help to bring them back into balance. One of these is to focus on the colors that go along with each chakra. For the Swadhisthana chakra the color is orange, and the gemstone associated with it is Carnelian which is an orangey-rust color. To keep it easy, just remember that orange is for fertility!
It is said that becoming ‘in tune’ with the sacral chakra by exercising, through yoga poses, that these energy blockages can become opened and may increase chances of conception. There are many simple poses to strengthen the pelvic region and the sacral chakra. As this charka is a water element it is important to keep plenty of water flowing through your system. (Drinking water has been linked to an increase in Cervical mucus.)
It also helps to add visualization to the process of the movement for further benefit. For example, visualize the color orange, wearing the healing carnelian gemstone, and imagining your reproductive organs becoming fertile, while saying positive affirmations to yourself either out loud or to yourself such as, “I am fertile”.
