THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
The Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura in Sanskrit is the third major Chakra and it's located about two inches above the belly button.
This vital chakra holds energy associated with our self-identity, personal power and social awareness.
The element of the Solar Plexus Chakra is the one of the Sun - Fire, symbolizing light, energy, warmth and activity. It is represented with the colors Yellow and Gold and illustrated by the 10 petalled lotus.
A BALANCED SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
When the Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced we are comfortable in our own skin and know where we fit in the greater picture. We are confident, we are sure of ourselves and our self-esteem is high.
With a balanced Solar Plexus individuals will know their true self and feel confident instead of conforming to social norms.
A OVER-ACTIVE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
When the Solar Plexus is hyper, we'll get on the bad side of over-confidence: Passing judgement, displaying passive-aggressive behavior and acting snob and smug, not listening to others and having a hard time to get down our high horse.
These behaviors over time will damage ourselves and those around us, and can put a lot of stress on close relationships.
A BLOCKED SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
If this Chakra becomes blocked, it could affect our sense of worthiness and belonging (we feel inferior and disconnected from those around us), creating low self-esteem, low confidence. This is breeding ground to unwanted drama and looking or creating problems where there's none.
HOW TO BALANCE THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
The element of Solar Plexus Chakra is the Sun. The Sun is the most adored object in the history of mankind. Find somewhere you can be at peace and are able to feel the warm and gentle touch of the sun rays in your skin. Absorb them and direct it's mighty energy to your Solar Plexus Chakra crystals, charging them with intents of worthiness, ableness and confidence. Know that you're enough, know that all the power resides within you and that you're enough.
