The Orange Sacral Chakra is our sexual center. This is also the place where our confidence resides alongside our happiness and resourcefulness.
If you have blocks in the area then you also have challenges in relating to others.
Here's the thing, our lower abdomen is related to fluid and being fluid. "The flow", are you in "the flow" or not?
Easy question but not always an easy answer to give. It's okay. We're all friends here :)
Be honest with yourself.
How is your sexual area? Is there any level of dysfunction? Are you open or closed down in this area?
Everything is related, so when you heal one energy center they all work better! Isn't that great?!
If your second energy center is blocked you may feel; digestive ailments of the large intestine, sexual problems/dysfunction including impotence or frigidity, guilt, urinary tract issues.... basically fluid issues in general (including tears).
You may feel, pleasure without guilt, surrender, confident, you relate well to others and process emotions freely. You will feel more connected to nature, people and the spirit world.
It's about nurturing and becoming a nurturer as well as claiming emotional responsibility for yourself.
Wow! That's all? (she says with a wee bit o' sarcasm :)
