When we talk about the 7 chakras we should always keep in mind the scheme of our microcosm. Today every spiritual seeker knows that there are seven main chakras - also described as energy centers or wheels of light - but little is known about their deeper spiritual and metaphysical significance. An important point that needs to be understood is that the very same energy vibrates on all of these seven energy levels. However, when this energy reaches the energy centers, it is being transformed accordingly, so that different qualities of that particular wheel of light are attained
The sacral energy center has 6 lotus petals (vibrational fields), each of them being differently colored and with a specific irradiation. The dominant colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. The vital energies of the (Swadhisthana) sacral chakra can manifest themselves as sexual desire, gluttony, fear, crookedness, sorrow, envy or hatred. It is very important to purify the etheric double by working on our negative character traits before engaging into a more intense spiritual practice.
The second chakra is orange in color. The orange color brings a very active energy. It is the color of joy, activity, and hope. Swadhisthana chaka is the place where our karma is activated, which means that here we have the opportunity to purify it, control our negative basic instincts, transform the negative energy into positive, and make a step toward higher consciousness. These basic instincts spring up from the subconscious mind, and the subconsciousness is the main field of action of this chakra. The sacral center controls our feminine and masculine side, helping us represent our sexuality. However, we should be devoted to transforming the unrefined sexual energy into finer more refined energies by reducing our sexual activity.
The spleen energy center is in charge of distributing the vital energy throughout the body. At its surface there is a small chakra sealed by an equilateral cross.
