Chakra is Sanskrit for the word wheel or disc. Chakras are energy vortices that spin as glowing wheels of light within every sentient being. Humans have seven (major) chakras that correspond with areas of the body, starting at the base of the spine, all the way up to the top of the head. Chakras can be overactive or deficient, blocked or out of balance. Selecting a gemstone Mala according to the corresponding chakra may assist one’s vibration at that relevant frequency.
The 2nd chakra is Svadhisthana or the Sacral and is located in your lower abdomen below your navel. When balanced, energy feels restored and you feel open and able to enjoy life. Orange is the color of the Sacral Chakra, it signals “I feel” and gives one the qualities of water, fluid, flowing and sensuality. Gemstones for the 2nd Chakra are carnelian, peach aventurine, etc.
