Today we’re talking about chakras again. You can read about the Root Chakra and Sacral Chakra if you’re interested in knowing more about them as well. Today we’re learning about the Solar Plexus Chakra!
The Solar Plexus Chakra
Location: Right above the navel
The Solar Plexus Chakra is the third chakra and is found right above the belly button. Emotionally, it governs your personal power, pretty much how you feel about yourself. Your willpower, self-esteem, your sense of self, all of those things are tied up in your Solar Plexus.
When your Chakra is balanced you’ll have a good sense of your own value and worth. You’ll be confident in the things that you do and you will know exactly who you are. You’ll believe that you are successful and you will trust in the belief that you hold greatness within you. You are pretty sure of your place in the world.
Emotional signs that this chakra is blocked are negative emotions, anger, frustration, low feelings of self-worth and self-esteem. You might be letting your fears of rejection and unworthiness overwhelm you. People who have a blocked solar plexus chakra are also more susceptible to abusive relationships. They let others have the power because they don’t know how to embrace their own.
If your chakra is over-active you might have severe anger issues, holding onto grudges, habits of bullying and violence towards others. To start dealing with those issues you have to do deep work on many levels and working with chakras is just one of them.
A few ways to heal those imbalances are with crystals such as citrine, sunstone
, and rose quartz. Rose Quartz will be good for anger issues and holding onto grudges and the sunstone will help you tap into your power. You can place the stones in your receiving hand (usually the left one) and while breathing deep, let their energy flow through you. You can also lay down and meditate with the crystal placed over your chakra.
You can also experiment with essential oils such as basil and clove, which will help invoke courage. Ylang ylang will help you let go of jealously and anger. You can wear these oils while meditating or going about your day, you can put them in a bath, add them to candles or diffusers, or put them in spray bottles with water to anoint your space with.
