The Colour Orange

ORANGE relates to the SACRAL chakra situated in the lower abdomen
The organs to which this chakra relates are uterus, large bowel, prostate, ovaries and testes. (In the foetus the testes develop in the lower abdomen, thus linking with the sacral chakra energy, then descending to the scrotum by birth.) The endocrine glands are the ovaries and testes.

On the psycho-spiritual level, this chakra relates to self respect. That is to say having the ability to give ourselves the freedom to be ourselves and to respect our own boundaries and requirements and, by the same token, having respect for the boundaries of others. Orange is the colour of creativity and we should give ourselves the space to have creative time just for us.

Using Orange in Colour Therapy

It is interesting that orange is the colour which is the least popular and the associated issues of orange and the sacral chakra seem to be an area which people find the most difficulty working on.

But orange is such a good colour for us in many ways. It stimulates and energizes us, and is warming. It is an excellent colour for creativity.

Colours used in the home can be so helpful in providing us with a balanced environment. Orange is the colour of fun and sociability and can be used in any activity area and creative areas. It is not ideal for bedrooms or areas of possible stress.
