3rd Chakra – Solar Plexus

Fire, Ego identity, oriented to self-definition

This chakra is known as the power chakra, located in the solar plexus. It rules our personal power, will, and autonomy, as well as our metabolism. When healthy, this chakra brings us energy, effectiveness, spontaneity, and non-dominating power.

The strongest sense I get when working with this chakra are issues of self-identity and self-meaning. This chakra is also the chakra of action and doing in the world. It is often referred to as the will center. This meeting of action and identity creates the question ‘what do my actions say about me?’. This can be a source of shame if our actions do not align with our self-image. the chakra is also affected by and participates in expressions of denial, justification, defensiveness and self-judgment (good or bad). When our sense of self aligns with who we are in spirit, then this chakra flows evenly. It supports our actions free of conflict.

One easy exercise to bring ease and flow into the solar plexus is to balance it with the heart. Simply breathing alternately through one then the other will allow for more communication and balance through this vital center. This and more chakra explorations will be a apart of Tuesdays in February. I hope you will join us.
