If you’ve been following this blog looking for ways to help you reach your goals and still can’t find the drive you need for success, it could be that your solar plexus chakra is out of balance. If you’ve made your action plan, practiced meditating but still can’t find the spark you need, balancing your solar plexus chakra gives you energy for success.
Color Association: Yellow
Physical Location: At the very bottom of your spine. Energy enters through the male and female genitalia.
Your Burning Fire
The last chakra in my two part series covering the seven chakras concludes with one that is directly related to reaching your goals. It is the third chakra. Its Hindu name is the Manipura which literally translated means “City of Jewels.”
In new age theory the manipura chakra is known as the solar plexus chakra and it relates to the power within yourself to change; power to change yourself and your life, power to discipline yourself, and the power to reach your goals. Wisdom is thought to reside within your solar plexus chakra as well as basic common sense.
Your solar plexus chakra is represented by the color yellow which corresponds to the fire element which is responsible for your drive and energy. In balance it can push you over the hump and give you the power that you need to achieve success.
Corresponding Physical Functions: Face, eyes, stomach, liver, pancreas, adrenal glands, metabolism, and digestion.
Your Solar Plexus Chakra in Balance
In balance your solar plexus is responsible for helping you to set clear goals and constantly replenishes your energy to actually reach those goals. That get-it-done attitude is what makes you a good leader and the strongest advocate for yourself.
Confidence blossoms in you when your solar plexus chakra is in balance and your vision both physically and spiritually becomes clearer. Your drive and sense of accomplishment leads to a much happier disposition and greater personal joy.
An Imbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra
The character traits of a person with an imbalanced solar plexus chakra can be repulsive to people in general. Particularly if you suffer from an overactive third chakra, you are responsible for sending out all kinds of negative vibes and those vibes come back to ruin your own peace of mind and happiness.
An Overactive Solar Plexus Chakra
Bullies suffer from overactive solar plexus chakras. You can be very aggressive and overbearing. You are overly critical and judgmental. Overall you are an angry person with an arrogant attitude that says that you know everything and everyone else is wrong.
Those suffering from weak and underactive solar plexus chakras are not much better. You aren’t the bully but you allow yourself to be trampled on by other people all the time because you are so desperate for others to like you. You are constantly worried, insecure, and nervous hence you lack joy and serenity in your life.
Balancing Your Solar Plexus Chakra
In order to reverse those ugly traits and begin balancing your solar plexus, odd as it may sound, you must first verbalize what it is that you want to change about yourself. Remember, the third chakra helps you to transform yourself so clearly state what it is that you want to transform.
Next begin meditating by envisioning vibrant yellow colors while focusing on your belly button region. If it is sunny outside, meditate outdoors and let the bright yellow of the sun radiate over you as you meditate.
Go outside and kick the ball around or shoot some hoops, jump rope or go to a park and swing to begin energizing your solar plexus chakra. Keep lemony scents around you and wear topaz or citrine in yellow to harness the power of your third chakra. For your diet, look for yellow fruits and vegetables like corn, lemons, and bananas to add to your meals.
