The sacral energy center is all about having passion for life and enjoying the physical plane. It is located under the belly button and is most often orange in color. It also has a lot do do with our family relationships and relationships with others. If you have problems in many of your relationships you may want to work on your sacral and the issues you had or are having with your family. Relationship patterns that we pick up and learn in childhood often repeat themselves, and if you make a list of all the things you do not like about your family relationships and compare it to a list of things you do not like about other relationships, you will see that they have a lot if not everything in common. For example if you had a mother that was passive and did not listen to you, you could see this aspect mirrored throughout all of your other relationships. This usually means that you do not listen to your own needs and wants and are passive about them since your reality is only a mirror.
Working with this energy center can help with constant overeating. Often when we eat too much we are stuffing down emotions that we do not want to deal with or are unwilling to face.
