The Solar Plexus

The Solar Plexus Chakra 

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the 3rd chakra and located from the belly button to your breastbone. In Sanskrit it’s Manipura. It’s also been referred to as the “Warrior Chakra” because it’s our source of power. This chakra governs your self-confidence, your identity, your personal power. This is where your “gut feelings” come from.

The color associated with this chakra is yellow. The element is fire. The sounds is “ram” which you can chant during meditation. The yoga poses to aid in opening your solar plexus is twisting poses or poses aimed at strengthening your core.  You will want to eat foods that are yellow. Drink peppermint, chamomile, dandelion, or ginger tea.

When your chakra is balanced you have a sense of wisdom, decisiveness and personal power, inner peace. When it’s out of balance you will have low-self esteem, feelings of abandonment and nervousness. Underactive can cause lack of energy, indecisiveness or insecure, timid and needy. Overactive can cause you to be quick to anger, lack of compassion and empathy, be controlling or greedy. Physical symptoms can manifest as digestive issues, imbalances in your internal organs such as appendix, pancreas, livers and kidneys. To balance, open your heart with love and compassion, meditate, refocus your power by thinking of things you are good at by making a list.
