The third chakra, which governs our vitality, will, self-esteem and sense of personal power, is located in the solar plexus (just above the navel). When energy flows freely through this center, we’re confident about our ability to manifest our intentions and desires. When the third chakra is blocked, however, we feel powerless and frustrated.
This is the area which defines our “self-esteem”. The personality that develops during puberty is housed in this chakra….otherwise known as the “EGO”. Anyone experiencing dysfunction of the third chakra is having difficulty obtaining or maintaining his/her own “personal power”. This intuitive chakra is where we get our “gut instincts” that signal us to do or not to do something. Strong self-esteem is a required for developing intuitive skills.
The Solar Plexus:
Symbolizes our inner fire feeding the soul. It is here in the solar plexus chakra that we convert solar energy into nourishment and use it to enhance the vitality of our physical body. Within this energy center we are open to all our surrounding energies, and in contact with the outside world and others. The 3rd chakra is the seat of the soul , the seat of the ego, and the social validation of ourselves. Once we harmonize our feelings in a healthy way, an abundance of white light comes in through this energy center and fills up our aura. Which in return enlightens our daily lives with pure joy, confidence, wisdom and peacefulness.
A Balanced Solar Plexus Chakra:
Is associated with calming emotions and frustrations, easing tension and helping better utilize intuition. We are grateful and able to accept ourselves for who we are. We feel confident but not arrogant. We are outgoing, cheerful, open, decisive, expressive, intelligent, also respectful of ourselves and others, . We even experience strong nerves , flexibility, inner peace, and healthy relationships with others.
It’s vital to keep the fires going strong and this is the energy center to focus on for raw energy. Color therapy for your Solar chakra could include wearing yellow or creating art that involves bright yellow.
The sound of the Solar chakra is the note E. Singing or playing an instrument in E helps to stimulate a balancing effect in the third chakra.
