There is a powerful life force within us that flows from seven wheels of energy, known as the chakra. These seven energy centers spin to keep our life force flowing, each affecting different parts of our bodies, minds and spirits. When the chakras are balanced and spinning in harmony, we feel at our best. However, it is not uncommon for our chakras to spin too fast or too slow, making us feel physically and emotionally unwell.
We can restore balance to our chakras and improve our well-being if we get to know what each energy center affects and how it can be revved up or calmed down. Today, we’re looking at the third chakra, the Solar Plexus Chakra.
The Solar Plexus Chakra, or Manipura, is the center of our personal power. In Sanskrit, it means ‘shining gem’, fitting as it represents our ego. This chakra governs self-esteem, self-control and emotion. It affects our stomach, digestive system, kidneys and pancreas.
IS YOUR SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA BALANCED?
A balanced Solar Plexus Chakra gives you confidence, courage and wisdom. You’ll feel empowered to make your own decisions, speak up for yourself and take on whatever challenges come your way. Willpower and discipline will come easy to you.
When this chakra is out of balance, self-confidence and self-esteem suffer. You may feel worthless, unfulfilled and frustrated with your life. An under-active Solar Plexus Chakra can make you feel powerless. You may doubt yourself and struggle to trust others. When it’s over-active, this chakra can make you angry, judgmental and demanding.
HOW TO BALANCE YOUR SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA?
Surround yourself with yellow. This is the color connected to this chakra. Wear yellow or decorate your home with it. Eat yellow foods like bananas, yellow peppers and lemons.
Use crystals. Choose those that are yellow in color, like amber, citrine or yellow sapphire. Hold them during meditation, carry them with you or wear them throughout the day.
Sharpen your mind. Mental clarity can help balance this chakra so choose activities that keep your brain active like crossword and jigsaw puzzles.
Step out of your comfort zone. Take chances and find new activities or even just change up your daily routine.
