Too much Orange
Too much Orange and we become self-centered, manipulative, and self serving, disregarding the needs of others. Pride, and arrogance can push us out of balance.
Not Enough Orange
Too little Orange and we become frigid, distrustful, timid or shy, and overly sensitive. We lose our motivation, our self esteem suffers, and we have a tendency to isolate or become rebellious. We hide our emotions and are easily hurt. This can lead to becoming mistrustful of others, introverted, unable to show emotions, worrying about what others think, and even anti-social behavior.
The most effective way to add the power of Orange or correct a balance in the 2nd Chakra is thru adding natural orange crystals and gemstones to your everyday wardrobe so they are close to you for several hours at a time and touching your skin, (the pulse points: ears, wrists, ankles, and neckline) and thus effecting your aura and Sacral Chakra.
This is much more effective than carrying stones in your purse or pocket, or placing them in your environment. For direct healing, the jewellery can be placed on the Sacral Chakra itself.
