7 Week Chakra Segment – Solar Plexus Chakra
Hello light beings! This week we are moving from our Sacral chakra and beginning to break down the 3rd Chakra – the Solar Plexus. This chakra is the center of willpower. While the Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about the perception of who you are. Associated with the color yellow, and the element of fire – this chakra is where your self-confidence, identity and personal power are born. Have you ever been in a situation that you just knew wasn’t right for you? Perhaps you’ve been in a situation that you knew was going to work out. Where did you feel those cues in your body. Most people say they feel those types of cues in their “gut.” In reality, this is the seat of your personal power, your solar plexus, and you can physically feel that confidence and wisdom in its location.
The energy of this chakra allows you to transform inertia into action and movement. It allows you to meet challenges and move forward in your life. When this chakra is overactive or too energized, you may feel quick to anger, the need to control and micromanage, greediness and a lack of compassion or empathy. You may suffer from digestive issues or even imbalances in your internal organs like the appendix, pancreas, liver and kidneys. if our personal power is taken away from us either by another person or through extenuating circumstances, we may be left with a lack of energy in our 3rd chakra. When this happens, you may feel indecisive, insecure, timid and needy.
Tools for balancing the Solar Plexus:
Affirmations: Speaking to ourselves – and our cells – greatly influences our frequency and energy centers. Repeating affirmations or mantras throughout the day is a great way to integrate positive self talk. Repeat this mantra a few times, perhaps meditate with it. Focus on your breath and be present with each and every word, feeling it in your body. “I Am Authentic, I Am Focused, I Am Strong, I Am Empowered, I Am Centered, I Am Energized, I Am.” Picturing a beautiful and warm sunflower where this chakra is located while repeating this affirmation, or one of your own, can have an instant positive effect.
Crystals: Malachite, Citrine, Tigers Eye, Yellow Tourmaline, Rhodochrosite, and Jasper are all crystals that can be greatly beneficial for balancing and creating clarity in the Solar Plexus chakra. Place them over your Solar Plexus while repeating the affirmations, or meditate with them, asking them to collaborate with you and bring clarity in your journey to reconnecting yourself with this chakra.
Essential Oils: Chamomile, Frankincense, Myrrh, and Rose are all connected with the Solar Plexus chakra. You can blend a few of these essential oils together and put them into a diffuser to release their magical essence throughout your home or space, or you can wear them on your body to carry their properties with you throughout the day. Pouring a few drops of an essential oil onto a warm washcloth and placing it over your Solar Plexus or Heart area during a bath is a another great option for integrating essential oils healing properties into your life.
Nutrition: There are many foods that are associated with the Solar Plexus. Bananas, granola, and grains such as bread, pasta, rice, flax, and sunflower seeds are all powerful Solar Plexus foods. Spices and herbs such as ginger, chamomile, turmeric, cumin, fennel and mint are also associate with the Solar Plexus chakras frequencies.
Sound Therapy: The 3rd chakra vibrates in an “E” note. Chanting “RA” in this note can have powerful healing and balancing effects on this chakra. Finding ways to bathe yourself in the vibration on the “E” note is highly suggested for anyone seeking to find balance, clarity, and harmony in the Solar Plexus chakra.
In closing, let’s remember that the message of the third chakra is: You have the power to choose. Every time you judge or criticize yourself, you deplete this chakra and weaken your willpower. Self love, self acceptance, and acknowledgement of your own worth are the building blocks of the third chakra.
