The Solar Plexus Chakra~


We've been discussing our main chakra system, how it works, and associations of the first (root chakra) and second (sacral chakra) chakras as well as ways we can open and balance them. In this blog, I'm going to provide you with some information about the solar plexus chakra, also known as the power chakra. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post them below!

The solar plexus, or Manipura in Sanskrit, is golden yellow in color, and located in the upper abdomen. The solar plexus chakra relates to assertiveness, especially when dealing with others in group situations. When the power chakra is open, you feel in control and have ample self-esteem. An under-active power chakra will result in indecisiveness, causing you to feel timid, and keeping you passive in action. Conversely, an over-active chakra is indicated through aggression. Bullies are a perfect example!

Emotional issues that impact the solar plexus include our self-confidence and esteem. Worthiness is a problem that almost everyone struggles with at some point in their lives. Primary characteristics of a healthy solar plexus are confidence, mental agility, and the ability to lead effectively. Dis-ease correlating with this chakra manifests as chronic fatigue, poor memory, colitis, parasites, diabetes, hypoglycemia, ulcers and other ailments of the stomach, liver, pancreas, and gall bladder.

There are a number of different remedies that can be used to open and balance the solar plexus. Affirm yourself by saying, “I can do it!” Explore mind puzzles, perform in public or do something else that normally frightens you. Laugh. Read mentally stimulating books, lay out in the sun, or complete a liver cleanse or detoxification.

If you like stones and crystals, tiger’s eye, ametrine, citrine, topaz, amber, and rutilated quartz are excellent for your power chakra. Incense that aids the health of this chakra are dragon's blood, sandalwood, saffron, cinnamon, and ginger. Essential oils include lemon, peppermint, and fennel. A simple meditation can be performed by taking a few minutes of silence, allowing yourself to breathe deeply and focus your attention on the solar plexus region. Imagine the solar plexus is a radiant golden yellow. Sit in the warmth and comfort of this brilliant golden energy. Notice any thoughts or feelings that arise without judgment. If your mind's eye spots any dark or dullness in this chakra, imagine you have a golden paint brush and use it to restore the light to its magnificence.

This wraps up our discussion on the solar plexus chakra. Next time, we'll be discussing our heart chakra! Until then, my beautiful and peaceful ones~

Namaste

  3. Thanks, Jodi! I still don't know much about meditating on or working with chakras but I think this is one I will have to work on a lot. As for doing something that frightens me is pretty much what I have to do at work every day of the week. Even just going on to the shop is a lot so I think I'm doing okay for a start. Do you happen to have rutile/rutilated quartz? I would like to build a chakra crystal collection ( I don't want to get a kit).

  6. In fact, anyone who has reached a higher state of consciousness, either by diligent study and observation or by spiritual practices, has awakened chakras. He or she has evolved beyond base instincts and desires and sees the world with compassion, mercy and love. There are specific tantra rituals and meditation techniques used to achieve this state of being.
