We are so ready to embrace bright, sunny days…cool ocean breezes…outdoor festivals and starry nights with the sounds of crickets. Summer finally arrives : )
How perfect to look at our next chakra: the Solar Plexus. This is the “fire in the belly” the old saying is referring to. It’s element is fire and its energy is characterized by transmutation and heat. This chakra is where we get our “gut instincts” that signal us what to do when we need guidance.
Located: Midway between the navel and base of sternum
Characteristics associated with the Solar Plexus chakra are: power and the intellect, personal strength, comprehension, self esteem, will power, mental awareness, personal responsibility, making decisions, beliefs, clarity of decisions, independence, harmonious relationship with your surroundings, self discipline.
When in balance, you can experience: healthy self esteem, respect for others, calmness, initiative, feel friendly, joyful and confident. You live a deeply fulfilling emotional life, you feel daring, confident and able to take risks. This chakra is associated with the leader, the explorer and the charismatic individual.
When your Solar Plexus is out of balance, you may experience: low self confidence, have concerns about what others think of you, depression, confusion, bodily manifestations such as digestive, liver and respiratory problems, excessive control or authority over your environment and people, feelings of helplessness, irresponsibility, obsessed with minute details, being manipulative, lack of purpose or ambition, lack of clear direction.
Your Solar Plexus is activated:
- anytime you muster the courage to do something that scares you
- anytime you speak up for yourself
- anytime you exert your willpower and self-control
You will acquire self-mastery – the ability to master your thoughts and emotions, overcome any fear and take appropriate action in any situation.
Ways to strengthen your Solar Plexus:
• Awaken lost curiosities; develop your photographic memory, do puzzles, pick up an old hobby.
• Regenerate your sense of smell, use aromatherapy extract oils like rosemary, grapefruit and orange.
• Wear a gold bracelet or necklace, or carry with you yellow gemstones like Amber or Topaz.
• Find the time to be outdoors and bask in the yellow energy of the sun.
Chamomile, bergamot, cedarwood, rosemary are amongst the most popular soothing oils
Citrine, tiger’s eye, yellow tourmaline.
Examples of stones that will work simultaneously on the heart chakra and the solar plexus chakra: Peridot, Serpentine, Gaspeite, Vesuvianite also known as Idocrase, Sphene, Hiddenite, Green Prehnite and Green Chrysoprase.
