About the Sacral Chakra
The Sanskrit word for the second chakra is Svadhisthana meaning sweetness. You can think of the 2nd, or sacral chakra, as the place where our most basic joys arise. Emotion, pleasure, our wants for intimacy, affection - and food! It is a place of enjoyment and appreciation for the simple things. This chakra is represented by the color orange and the planets Mercury, Jupiter and our Moon. We are constantly trying to control our instinctual desires, our appetites. And the Sacral chakra doesn’t much appreciate being suppressed.. These crystals remind us to meditate on our appreciation for our bodies, health and the love we have and have had.
A mix of Red Jasper and Epidote. This blend has been a symbol of lasting love and harmonious relationships. Unakite is also associated with beauty, aromatherapy and artistic design. This connection to love & appreciation for sensual pleasure is perfect for satisfying our Sacral Chakra.
This stone has been called the “Whisper Stone” quieting the inner voice that judges the self. It reminds us that it’s ok to enjoy life’s pleasures without guilt.
All Calcite has a refreshing energy and cleansing properties. Orange Calcite is thought to be particularly useful for energizing the solar plexus and sacral chakras.
Likely inspired by the deep orange color, the ancient Egyptians called Carnelian "the setting sun.” They associated this stone with the fertility of the mother goddess. Carnelian is a symbol of passion, love and desire.
Obsidian is born of fire, formed from flash-cooled lava. With all the stimulation of the Sacral Chakra, snowflake obsidian is the perfect stone for reminding us to stay balanced and grounded.
Sunstone is a powerful healing stone for the Sacral Chakra. It is a place within us that desires the satisfaction of life's simplest joys. Sunstone is strongly connected to the lifeforce of the Sun giving us energy and promoting activity. Sunstone also deepens our enjoyment of nature which resonates with the base chakra.
