Third Chakra Solar Plexus - The Seat of the Soul
The solar plexus holds our power. Located in the upper belly by the diaphragm, this chakra’s energy flow comes in the front and back of the body like the sacral chakra.
The solar plexus is key to feeling confident in our abilities and expressing our true selves, providing a knowing that we have the freedom to choose our paths in life.
Represented by the colour yellow, the solar plexus allows us to move forward in life with ease and authenticity, making conscious decisions to choose and act for our highest good. We can meet life's challenges and be proactive rather than reactive or inactive.
Associated with the element of fire and transforming matter into energy, the solar plexus governs our personality, ego and identity. It’s about who we are. When we judge or criticise ourselves, we deplete this chakra and weaken our willpower.
The solar plexus relates to the digestive system, middle back and pancreas.
Opening this chakra point shifts us from a victim mentality into a balanced and strong persona with a healthy ego and self-esteem. We can become fearless and gain an understanding that everything happens in life for our personal and spiritual growth.
