The color is associated with is the orange one, that is the symbol of inner harmony, artistic creativity and sex, fertility, positive emotions, pleasure and success.
Orange, with its bright hues, invites us to free spontaneously ourselves from the patterns and express our emotions. A stable Sacral Chakra promotes a healthy relationship with our own sensuality passion and emotions are not repressed, but paid up. The body is consciously accepted and loved despite the flaws and weaknesses. The erotic relationship with the patner is rewarding and full of passion, and our relationships with the opposite sex are healthy, authentic and satisfying. Life in general is characterized by frequent positive experiences, prosperity, abundance and wealth.

If during your day, while performing your normal daily activities, you feel good, motivated, enthusiastic, full of energy and motivation, it means that your Sacral Chakra is in balance. In contrast, a poorly functioning Svadhistana makes you feel a lack of self-esteem, phobias, panic, anxiety, jealousy, inability to be you.
It becomes difficult, if not impossible, to manage anger, the reactions are always instinctive, uncontrolled, always guided emotion rather than logic and balance.
