Third Chakra – Solar Plexus Chakra – Location is between the belly button and the rib cage. It looks after the stomach, liver, intestines and digestive system.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is responsible for our self-confidence, self-esteem, self-protection and self-belief. Pretty much everything that starts with self. It allows you to do what you believe is right, without worrying about what others think. It helps you to express your opinion without becoming angry or defensive. It gives you the confidence to stand up for yourself and the ability to say ‘No’ when something isn’t right for you.
If your Solar Plexus is in balance, then you will stand up straight and tall and believe in yourself. You will have a strong moral code and know what is right and wrong and easily express yourself if something isn’t right for you. When you decide to go on a certain path, you are not concerned what others think about it and you have focus, persistence and diligence to see projects through to the end.
If your Solar Plexus is underactive then you will always be concerned with what other people think of you. You will always behave in a manner that pleases others and not yourself. You will always go along with what other people think is right for you and not know your own truth or go your own path. You will probably be the type of person that get walked all over because you don’t have the strength to say ‘No’ when you don’t want to do something. Overactive Solar plexus are the opposite. They can be very controlling and domineering. They can’t express their opinion without getting angry or worked up because they want to force their opinion onto others. They have lots of confidence, but when they are on their path they have little regard for hurting others along the way.
How is your Solar Plexus? As with all of our Chakras, they are shaped with our experiences in life. The Solar Plexus can get a battering if we don’t have a loving, supportive, nurturing childhood at home and in our tribe. But, all is not lost if you have a weak solar plexus chakra.
Energise your Solar plexus Chakra by surrounding yourself in the colour yellow. You can place your hand on your Solar plexus Chakra area and visualise the colour Yellow entering into the area and imagine your confidence growing. As you are feeling the confidence fill your body, be aware of how your shoulders and chest are sitting. Bring your shoulders down and back and open up your chest. Stay in this position until your whole body and every cell in it, is fill with confidence and self love.
The next Chakra will be the all loving Heart Chakra<3
