We all have chakras or energy centres in our body. In Sanskrit, Chakra means a wheel or disc. Chakras are “wheels” or vortexes of swirling energy throughout our body. We have seven main Chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located between the belly button and solar plexus in the abdomen (below the breastbone) and is represented by the colour yellow and the element of fire. This Chakra is all about willpower, confidence, discipline and is the core of our ego and our identity.

An open, balanced Solar Plexus Chakra allows you to move forward in your life in a powerful, balanced way. A blocked Chakra may lead to reactivity, inactivity or passiveness and insecurity, but a clear and open Solar Plexus Chakra is proactive in nature. The Solar Plexus Chakra is all about our confidence and power to choose our actions in life and move forward continually in a positive manner.

Essential Oils to Clear and Balance the Solar Plexus Chakra

  • Bergamot
  • Lavender
  • Rosemary
  • Mandarin
  • Patchouli
  • Roman Chamomile
  • Lemon
  • Peppermint
  • Ginger
  • Spikenard

Crystals to Restore the Solar Plexus Chakra

  • Kyanite
  • Citrine
  • Agate
  • Pyrite
  • Tigers Eye
  • Shungite
  • Orange Calcite
  • Amber
  • Yellow Jasper
  • Lemon Quartz
  • Yellow Tourmaline

Solar Plexus Chakra Affirmation: I can. I am powerful, successful and confident in all that I choose to do. I am worthy. I honour myself, treat myself with love and kindness and value myself. I know what is best for me, and I can act in my best interests. I accept and own my choices and life. I am free to choose as I wish. I am whole. I choose light, love and goodness. I choose health, happiness, healing and joy. I love myself and all that I am (and am not).

Simple Tips for Balancing Your Solar Plexus Chakra

  • Use the colour yellow   Crystals, lights, clothing, furniture or accessories. Envision the colour yellow glowing brightly and transparently in your abdomen.
  • Eat yellow foods –  Enjoy yellow coloured foods such as yellow peppers, bananas, and spices like ginger or turmeric. Granola, grains and sunflower seeds are also beneficial.
  • Hit play and repeat – Use your affirmations! And repeat them often.
  • Seek sun-and-fire – Find ways to be near the sun or a fire. Sit out under the sun, bask in the warm rays, or enjoy a nighttime campfire.

About this 12-part Reiki Series

In this 12-part series, readers will learn about the energy of life, how it affects us, how we can utilise it in helpful ways and ultimately, how to achieve the Ultimate Success in their very own lives: pure joy, love and happiness.  I will describe the Chakras (their location, connectivity and more), what energy healing is, and how the Laws of the Universe are at play at all times.  Additionally, I will detail how readers can open themselves to receiving, to flow with life instead of resisting, and how we are driven by fear and love. At the end of the 12-part series, readers should have a better understanding of their bodies, themselves and how to expand and enhance their experiences.

Next month I will cover ‘The Heart Chakra’. I hope you’ll join me then 🙂
