Solar Plexus Chakra Basics

This Chakra Represents

Power, Independence, Confidence

Solar Plexus Lesson

To live our personal mission free of inhibitions and without domineering others.

Solar Plexus Chakra is Responsible For

The Solar Plexus Chakra is responsible for a sense of personal power and assertiveness. An underactive solar plexus chakra puts one into a disposition of giving away their power and having low self-esteem. An overactive solar plexus chakra makes one cocky, arrogant, and bossy. Both of these are far from becoming the confident, self-reliant individual that people strive towards.

How To Balance the Solar Plexus Chakra

Accept yourself for who you are, recognize your true value, honor yourself, forgive yourself, hold integrity, indulge in positive thinking, seek self-reliance, and have conviction.

Step 1. Aromatherapy

To soothe the chakra the lies between the navel and the solar plexus via aromatherapy, you can use essential oils like sandalwood, chamomile, rosemary, rose, myrrh, rosewood and frankincense. Soak yourself in the aromatic goodness of these essential oils to get the best you can and attain complete balance.

Step 2. Tailored Diets

For the third chakra, sunny yellow foods can channel fiery raw energy into action. Try including yellow peppers, corn, lentils, yellow curry and banana into your diet. When you’re trying to heal the solar plexus chakra, you need to keep away from processed foods that get absorbed too quickly. Complex carbohydrates and whole grains are the way to go.

Step 3. Physical Activity

Yoga does more than just make you fit. It balances your chakras too. For the solar plexus chakra, try the boat pose [kundalini yoga]. It unlocks energy at the base of your spine and channels it throughout the body, unblocking the solar plexus.

Step 4. Mental Visualizations

Imagine a bright yellow flower or an orb of yellow light entering your body just below the rib cage, slowly expanding to spread warmth all across your body. Visualize this energy for five to ten minutes with your eyes closed. Relax and breathe deeply. You’ll begin feeling better in an instant.


Step 5. Healing Stones

If you’re using healing gemstones to unblock your solar plexus chakra, you need amber, citrine, lemon quartz, yellow jasper, yellow tourmaline, or the tiger’s eye. These yellow colored stones are great for grounding and balancing the solar plexus.
