Orange is warming, protective, and stimulates creativity.

If you work with crystal therapy or reiki healing stones, you′ll want to select an orange stone. Suitable crystals include orange calcite, peach aventurine, and even petrified wood will to the tick. If you′re familiar with using a chakra pendulum, point it at your pubic bone, and focus on its orange area. Envision the protective healing of this color flowing into your sacral chakra, bringing it back into balance.

3) What is the Normal Function of the Sacral Chakra?
