Carnelian Chakra Healing and Balancing Energies
Carnelian, in its beautiful shades of orange,
stimulates the Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra, located below the naval and above the pubic bone at the front of the pelvis. It controls the flow
of energy and is the center of gravity of the body. It is the center of the Life Force of the body, and controls the flow
of information from the body to the mind and from the mind to the body.
Gut feelings, intuition,
and other "non-linear" communication comes from this chakra. When it is out of balance the symptoms will manifest
themselves as confusion, over dependency on others, repression of feelings, inability to feel joy, fear of sensuality or sex,
and frustration. When it is in balance you have grace, feel pleasure in life, find you are flexible and can "go with
the flow" and do so in good spirit.
Carnelian, in shades of red, is also a powerful ally
in healing Base Chakra blockages and traumas, aiding one in recovering vital information about oneself and one's purpose on Earth. The Base, or Root
Chakra, is located at the base of the spine, and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation
of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy,
low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical
body regains its strength and stamina, and spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one's own power.
It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership.
