The Solar Plexus Chakra is our personal power chakra. This is the area that defines our ‘self-esteem’. When the energy of your Solar Plexus is balanced and unblocked, you feel confident, valued, unique and energetic. The personality that develops during puberty is housed in this chakra which is known as the ‘EGO’. The unbalanced Solar Plexus energy often has the need to manipulate or to be controlled by others or to be angry. Because this chakra is a great network of nerves that goes out to all parts of the abdominal cavity and has been sometimes called the ‘abdominal brain’, and can be highly affected by stress.
What does your 3rd Chakra need? A healthy Solar Plexus vibrates at a frequency similar to the color yellow, therefore adding more yellow foods to your diet can help balance this chakra. I bet you weren’t aware that a great exercise for the Solar Plexus is using a hula hoop and dancing. Gemstones for the Solar Plexus include: Adventurine – balances energy, boosts well-being; Topaz – encourages confidence; Yellow Citrine -lets you access your personal power and Amber (for more details). What this chakra really loves is a ‘Genie in the Bottle’ belly rub!
