2. The Colour ORANGE
When we consider our basic, or major, seven chakras or psychic centers, we imagine the colours of the rainbow. The second colour we can consider is orange which is located at the site of the sacral chakra. Located above the pubic bone and about three inches below the naval, it radiates outward to include the reproductive glands.
The sacral chakra is the site of creativity. It is the place of emotion in all of our creative endeavours. This is where the energy for creativity, including our sexuality as well as all creative, artistic and innovative thoughts and ideas, is located. When we are ill, distressed, angry or feeling stagnant and blocked creatively, this chakra often is in a state of disharmony. To someone who can ‘see’ the aura, the colour orange may appear weak, scattered, shattered or even non-existent. To one who can see the actual chakras, the orange colour may appear dull, brownish and pale and the chakra itself may be very small and/or misshapen. At other times it may also be boldly much larger and out of proportion and its hue may be very harsh and bright.
Close your eyes. Imagine a clear glass bowl filled with ripe, fresh oranges or tangerines or imagine a favourite orange object. Slowly counting to four, breathe that orange hue in through your nose. While holding your breath for a count of five, six or seven (whichever you are able to comfortably maintain), allow it to course down to the bottom of your spine then rise and settle at the sacral area above the pubic bone and below the naval where your sacral chakra is located. Breathe out through your mouth for a count of five, six or seven (again, whichever is most comfortable). As you exhale, visualize that the breath has picked up any deep-seated anxieties and toxins and is releasing those into the air and away from you. Repeat the breath work, noticing how the orange light softly yet strongly illuminates the sacral area of your torso. As you become comfortable with the routine of breathing, notice how the light illuminates that area like a band of beautiful orange light all around you. Visualize the orange light gently bathing your sexual organs and glands, freeing any negativity and opening you to divine inspiration. Feel how your emotions are respected. Feel the power of the freedom to create and to dream. You can feel your sacral chakra anchor and stabilize. You feel strong, capable and powerful. You ARE strong, capable and powerful.
Practice this meditation for ten to fifteen minutes, for three consecutive days if possible. Keep a journal and make notes of any changes you may notice in your well-being.
