Today we’re talking about the best sacral chakra stones and crystals to uplift your emotions and light your inner flame.

Your sacral chakra, or Swadhisthara in Sanskrit, is the second of seven in your subtle body. It’s just below the navel, and resonates with the color orange.

The sacral chakra symbol is an orange lotus flower with 6 petals, enveloping a circle. Isn’t it beautiful? Just holding an orange crystal and focusing on this image for a couple moments can help open your sacral chakra.

What Does The Sacral Chakra Rule?

Your sacral chakra is home to all of your feelings, thoughts and beliefs about:

  • one-on-one relationships
  • sex and intimacy
  • activities you’re are passionate about
  • emotional processing

So any experience that triggers growth in these areas (whether it’s a small shift or a major trauma) will affect the sacral chakra. Even positive changes can knock it for a loop!

What Blocks The Sacral Chakra?

Here are some experiences that can cause the sacral chakra to become blocked:

  • All work and no play
  • A romantic breakup or divorce
  • Drama with friends or family
  • Parent-child issues
  • Sexual trauma
  • Not expressing your feelings
  • Physical or emotional abuse
  • Feeling stuck or bored with life
  • Not making time for things that light you up

It’s your job to make sure you’re practicing self-care to open the sacral chakra back up! So take a moment to honor yourself for finding your way here.

Focusing on your own self care will allow you to create the enriching experiences, balanced emotions, and thriving relationships that you deserve.

Sacral chakra stones can help you along the road to healing.

How Orange Healing Stones Balance The Sacral

Each color of the rainbow vibrates at a specific frequency. In addition, each of your chakras is associated to a specific color.

Your sacral chakra resonates with the color orange.

This means that the color orange vibrates at the same frequency as a perfectly balanced sacral chakra.

So when you work with orange crystals, their vibration can influence the frequency of your subtle body, bringing your sacral chakra back into balance.

For this reason, most of the best sacral chakra healing stones are orange (with a few exceptions). When in doubt, any orange crystal or stone will work to bring your sacral chakra healing. Don’t be afraid to let your intuition guide you!
