5 Ways to Heal the Solar Plexus Chakra

What is the Solar Plexus Chakra?

According to Hindu and Buddhist metaphysical systems, the seven chakras are the traditional energy centres of the astral body, a subtle energy plane that coexists with the physical body.  Each chakra connects the body and spirit and often are represented as spinning wheels or lotus blossoms.  The Solar Plexus corresponds with the area starting at the abdomen above the belly button and running up to the breastbone.  The Solar Plexus chakra is also known as Manipura- ” The City of the Shining Jewel”.

Why Should you Heal the Solar Plexus Chakra?

If the Solar Plexus chakra remains unbalanced your decision making can become ego-led as well as it leading to physical ailments.  If it is balanced you may experience increased; confidence, motivation, purposefulness, reliability and responsibility.  If there is an imbalance you may experience; agression, low self-esteem and feelings of being superior to others and indecisiveness.  Imbalances can also manifest in the physical body as fatigue, arthritis, gastric ulcers, intestinal issues, diabetes, adrenal dysfunction, hepatitis, eating disorders or indigestion and excessive weight around the stomach.

Here are 5 ways of healing the Solar Plexus:

1. Aromatherapy

The scent of burning incense and essential oils can improve your mood and choosing those representative of the Solar Plexus chakra e.g. sandalwood, ginger or cinnamon can uplift and revitalise.

2. Crystal and Colour Healing

Incorporating crystals associated with the Solar Plexus e.g. Citrine, Carnelian, Topaz, Malachite, Yellow Sapphire, into energy work can amplify the healing effects.  Also, visualising the colour yellow emanating from this region can help repair any chakra damage.

3. Healing from the Past

Unhealed trauma from the past can store itself in the body and affect patterns and behaviours. For example if you have experienced a conservative upbringing, bullying or abuse this can lead to issues maintaining a balanced solar plexus.  Therapy, support from loved ones, Reiki healing, Crystal and Tarot Healing, Past-life Healing can also help restore this balance.

4. Meditation, Journaling and Automatic Writing

By repeating affirmations that you would like to become attuned to, writing them down, or saying them out loud or in your head; this can help replace negative thought patterns with constructive ones.  For example, I trust in my ability to stay strong; the only thing I need to control is how I respond to situations; I forgive myself for past mistakes and I learn from them.  Here is a meditation reel you may enjoy!

5. Yoga and Mindful Breathing

A combination of Yoga with mindful breathing can help release tension in the solar plexus region; physically, mentally and emotionally. The warrior pose builds confidence and can help to re-align the third chakra. Sun salutations warm up the body and connect with the fiery energy of the sun.  The boat pose can help strenghten the abdominal muscles and balance digestion.
