Sex and Creativity (Sacral Chakra)
Sexuality and creativity are governed by the sacral chakra. I find that these two wonderful aspects of life are linked. Stimulate one and you blissfully stimulate the other. Unleash one, and the other becomes free. So many of us are blocked here. Both sex and creativity are celebrations of life. Satisfying and elemental.
The sacral chakra is called Svadhisthana. It is located between the navel and the pubic bone. Relating to the element water and hence, our emotional life and the subconscious. Its color is orange and it governs the sense of taste. Svadhisthana introduces the aspect of relationships into our lives as we reach out beyond the family unit for validation, new experiences and companionship. Our work ethic relates to a healthy development of this chakra. The second chakra energy influences our creative and sexual energies. Physically, this chakra governs the kidneys, bladder, sexual organs, small and large intestines and lumbar spine.

The sacral chakra belly chain is made of carnelian, a stabilizing stone with high energy, excellent for restoring vitality, motivation and stimulating creativity. Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind, helping you to trust yourself and your perceptions. Carnelian is full of the life force and vitality. It influences the female reproductive organs, increases fertility, overcomes frigidity and impotence. Carnelian has the ability to cleanse other stones.
I, personally, wear carnelian every day.
