Sacral (Belly) Chakra (between pubic bone and navel)
Represented by the colour orange, this chakra pertains to creativity, feelings, sexual drive and pleasure. The unhealed inner child lives here. Blockages include the need to control; the need to hold on; the need to mother others and to be mothered; relationship issues, deep resentments over being manipulated or manipulating other people. Stress and trauma tend to become lodged at the sacral chakra. The Carnelian will balance all three lower chakras (base, sacral and solar plexus), encouraging confidence, practicality and the ability to feel at home in the world.
