Chakra Balancing and Healing with Orange Crystals


Orange crystals can help deal with balance issues and/or blockages of the Sacral Chakra, the second of the seven Chakras.

The Sacral Chakra is located below the navel 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.

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.
