The Third Chakra Energy Center – The Solar Plexus Chakra
Have you ever felt like you have been “punched in the gut” with words from another? When someone says unkind or hurtful words to you, this is the physical area of the body connected to your personal power. If this is something repeated over and over and you do nothing about what is being said, blockages in this chakra can develop.
The third chakra is found about an inch or two above the navel, in the abdomen area below the rib cage. A ten petal yellow lotus flower and symbolized by birds represents this chakra.
Physical symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra appear as problems of the liver, spleen, kidneys, digestion, food allergies, and nervousness.
Balancing the Solar Plexus Chakra
When the third chakra is in balance, it represents your own personal power, willpower, trusting yourself, the best of your personality and healthy self-esteem. It is where our healing energy comes from. The solar plexus chakra is perhaps best known for concentration, well-being and optimism. It means we can relax and enjoy the fruits of our labors.
When this chakra is out of balance, you feel like you can’t concentrate on anything or that your personal power has been taken or drained from you. You may feel a great amount of shame, frustration, anger or resentment towards someone or something that you feel has caused emotional harm to you. It could manifest as issues with authority figures. It may seem, at least in your mind, that someone is out to get you.
Blockages can physically manifest into ulcers, liver issues, problems with digestion, heartburn, arthritis, diabetes, anorexia, and bulimia. It also deals with fear, hate, and prejudice.
