The Solar Plexus Chakra

March 2, 2015

There are seven chakras in total. The third chakra is the solar plexus chakra. How good are your instincts? Do you get a tingling in your gut that tells you something is a good idea or bad idea? Everybody has got instincts and the solar plexus chakra is where they come from. However, that is not the sole purpose of the solar plexus chakra.

Like all of the chakras, our third chakra is complex. It is associated with more than one part of the body and with more than one characteristic. Chakras are very old concept. The Sanskrit name for our third chakra is manipura. All chakras are associated with the color and for this chakra that color is yellow.

The solar plexus chakra is located between the bottom of your sternum and your navel; this is where got its name from it is located where your solar access is in your body.

We’ve already mentioned how your instincts arise from the solar plexus chakra but what makes this the center gut instinct? The reason that our gut instinct is so spot on, when our chakra is balanced is because the solar plexus chakra is the center of our spiritual development and our mental awareness. What is our gut instinct anyways?

Our senses are always busy, taking notes and paying attention to all of the myriad of details that escapes our immediate notice. Our mental awareness center is not in our brains, but rather our solar plexus chakra; so all of our instincts that we rely on, they all come from here.

There is more, it is also where our strength comes from. Not our physical strength, but our personal strength; that ability to persevere, to thrive and to change and adapt is all centered in this chakra. When this chakra is balanced, it means you have strong sense of confidence in yourself. We rely on this chakra to help guide us through life, so not only is it where our gut instinct is, but our willpower, our self-esteem and our intuition all stem from here.

Are you feeling not so confident about yourself? Do you worry constantly about what others think of you? You might have an imbalance in your third chakra. Having an imbalance can also cause you to indecisive, afraid of being rejected and self-image problems. When it is balanced you are full of confidence, your intuition is strong and trustworthy and you are the master of your world and you are feeling emotionally balanced.

Chakras are associated with various parts of the body as well. The solar plexus chakra is associated with our stomach, our adrenal glands, our kidneys, our small intestines, our spleen, gallbladder, liver, and upper abdomen. When there is an imbalance, it can lead to physical problems. Problems with arthritis, stomach ulcers, diabetes, indigestion, pancreatitis, colon problems and liver diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatitis are all associated with the solar plexus chakra.

So, what do you do when you know something is off and you need to restore balance to this chakra? Since yellow is the associated color, make sure to bring yellow into your life. You can wear it, put out yellow flowers, use home décor and accents with yellow and wear gemstones and cr ystals that are yellow.

For your solar plexus chakra wear yellow tourmaline, golden topaz, yellow jasper, amber and wear jewelry made of gold. Natural sunlight is a great way to soak up the sun’s yellow energy.

Use aromatherapy and the scents of peppermint, golden yarrow, rosemary, chamomile and grapefruit.

I wish you love and light.
