THE SACRAL HARA CHAKRA – SECOND CHAKRA
Seven chakras are positioned throughout our body, from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. Each chakra has its own vibrational frequency, color, and governs specific functions that help make us, well, humans.
This post will deal with the second chakra.

Located at the genitals, below the navel and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis, this chakra monitors sexuality, creativity, happiness and reproduction. Sacral hara chakra is associated with reproductive organs, stomach and colon. It controls the flow of energy and is the center of gravity & Life Force of the body.

Engage in creative activities, such as painting, writing, composing, and acting to free up the creative energy, getting out on flowing water and reconnecting with the flow of nature and of course the most useful method of balancing any chakra – meditation
Sacral-focused meditation: holding an orange crystal over the second chakra and focusing on this region will prove very beneficial.
By focusing on the sacral region or lower belly during meditation, we tune into this energetic center and unconsciously begin to open to its potential. Activities between crystals work could include focused efforts on issues of abundance, the things that bring you pleasure, the elements of life that give you joy with other people and often include some form of visualization, whether that involves color, swirling energy, or some other imagery techniques.
