“HAPPINESS, CONFIDENCE, RESOURCEFULNESS
Brings joy to our workday and strengthens our appetite for life! Orange is the best emotional stimulant. It connects us to our senses and helps to remove inhibitions and makes us independent and social.
Personality Traits: Enthusiastic, happy, sociable, energetic, sporty, self-assured, and constructive.
The Sacral Chakra is governed by the orange energy.”

I was looking forward to working with my ORANGE energy center. 3 of the closest people I’ve had in my lifetime have been obsessed with the colour orange. I learned quickly that orange isn’t just one of those colours you like, it’s really a colour you love (or hate).
Personally, I love the colour orange. I love wearing very earthy orange tones, I wear an orange pendant necklace daily, and I smile when the colour comes up because it makes me think of these people I love.
I took an orange bath before going to a marketing conference and I’m not sure if I can credit soaking in orange or not – but I met the friendliest people and felt incredibly social. As a child I was painfully shy, so to now be able to attend conferences like this AND actually make friends that I sit with during our lunch breaks was really a big step forward in balancing my orange energy.
Although I would love to give all the credit to the orange bath I took before attending the conference, I have to give thanks to my orange energy friends who have taught me so much about being social and outgoing through their actions.
It’s important for people who feel shy or reserved to surround themselves with people who are the opposite. Both have a lot to teach each other. My orange friends have taught me how to go after what I want, how to break the ice in new situations, how to connect with strangers and how to ENJOY all of that!
One major plus that came from diving into this energy was that my musical creativity has peaked for the first time in years. I’ve purchased a guitar (after not playing in 10 years) and I’ve started to relearn how to play. In a short time I’m exactly where I was when I stopped playing and I’ve even learned new things that I used to have a hard time grasping.
A lesson that came up when working with this orange energy is that I’ve become aware of my self-doubts, especially when relating to my spiritual practice. With the red energy I felt a lot more confident and stable, but the orange energy brought up some ‘weak’ spots in my confidence.
I enjoyed working with the orange energy and really grounded myself in new ways to express myself creatively. My boyfriend and I began drawing together, I took up guitar again, I even felt very inspired to create new tarot spreads this month.
I spent time with new people and felt more of a desire to socialize than I did when working with the red energy, which I felt drew me more closely to family and old friends.
Almost forgot to mention – a big shout out to my partner for surprising me with these beautiful orange flowers at the start of working with this colour. They have been sitting on top of my desk for the month of July and have been radiating a beautiful energy!
