CHAKRA CHART 1 & 2
First Chakra - Root Chakra - Red
The root chakra is the chakra located at your perineum, at the bottom of your spine. The root chakra is represented by the first color of the rainbow - red.
If your root chakra is healthy, it governs your basic instincts for survival. It controls your ability to maintain a home, to earn money to pay the bills, to have enough for your physical needs.
If this chakra is unhealthy, it can cause you to be greedy, feel needy, or unappreciative of what you do have. It can cause you to neglect the steps necessary to maintain your environment.
To help strengthen your root chakra, focus on the color red, which is found in ruby and garnet gemstones. Visualize a red flower opening.
If the problem is that you are too open at the root chakra, and are suffering issues of greed or domination in relationships, then it is time to balance the root chakra. See the red flower gently closing.
Second Chakra - Sacral Chakra - Orange
The second chakra is the sacral chakra, represented by the color orange. The word sacral relates both to the back of your pelvis, as well as meaning "sacred". Looking at the front of a person, the sacral chakra would be located at around the bellybutton.
The sacral chakra governs the creative and emotion related energies. If your sacral chakra is in balance, then you find yourself on an even keel when you relate to people. You find yourself able to pursue your creative hobbies, to write, paint, sing or dance.
If your sacral chakra is out of balance, this could cause you to have roller coasters of emotions - perhaps being too obsessive about someone, or perhaps falling into deep despair over issues that really are not that bad. It could cause you to have problems feeling creative - writing that paper, thinking up new ideas to solve issues in your life.
If you need to boost your sacral chakra, try carnelian or tiger's eye. Visualize an orange flower at the sacral opening its petals. This will help you find ways to express your emotions more fully, and tap into your inner creativity.
If the problem is that your sacral chakra is too open - that your emotions are swinging wildly out of control, that you are so hyper that you do not have time to focus on any of your ideas imagine the orange flower gently closing its petals.
