The Solar Plexus chakra defines your self-esteem. If you are experiencing an unbalanced solar plexus chakra, you may have difficulty maintaining your “personal power.”
Signs of an Unbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra
- Have you given your personal power away?
- Do you feel victimized?
- Can you make an unpopular decision and stand by it, or do you concede to other’s decisions?
- You over-analyze just about everything.
- Do you know yourself?
- You feel inferior.
- Are you sarcastic to hide your feelings?
- Can you handle conflict without getting angry or resentful?
- Do you feel taken advantage of or controlled by others?
- Are you a pessimist? Are you afraid of facing life?
Your “gut feelings” and intuition emanate from the solar plexus. Likewise, a strong sense of self-esteem is required for developing your intuitive skills. This chakra is also where you assimilate feelings such as laughter, joy, and anger. Binaural beats can enhance your intuition and self-esteem, more efficiently than a traditional meditative practice, while clearing any blockage in your solar plexus chakra.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
Also known as the Manipura, rules lessons involving fear of rejection. Your self-esteem, sensitivity to criticism, a distorted self-image, and fear of your “secrets being found out” are stored here. The wisdom of the Solar Plexus involves your sense of personal power and knowing, your personality and your sense of belonging. An imbalance in the Manipura might manifest as poor decisions, poor concentration, trouble taking action and getting things done, and an inability to judge a situation accurately. Imbalances in this Chakra can create feelings that you are more, or less, than other people. It is where your ‘gut feelings’ originate, it is the center of your emotional life. Many naturally connect to the environment through the Solar Plexus chakra.
The Third Chakra is right above your belly button, at the center of your solar plexus. It’s color is yellow. It is connected to the Mental layer of the aura. The mental layer of the aura vibrates with, and is formed by, our thoughts, and is a fine, bright yellow energy. It pulsates and thickens when we concentrate and focus our minds.
Chakra Gemstones such as golden topaz, citrine, amber, yellow sapphire and yellow tourmaline are useful in Solar Plexus chakra balancing.
Essential Oils and Flower Essences
Among the flower essences and essential oils used to balance the Manipura are chamomile, yarrow, vetivert, petitgrain, peppermint, lemon juniper, and marjoram.
Foods for the Solar Plexus Chakra
Third Chakra foods are grains, pasta, bread, granola, cereal, flaxseed, rice, sunflower seeds. Dairy foods like milk, yogurt and cheese, and spices such as ginger, mint, chamomile, cumin, turmeric, and fennel.
