7 Facts About the Solar Plexus Chakra You Should Know

Posted on April 18, 2017

Chakra healing seems very popular at the moment—and with good reason! Chakras are energy centers that run up the spine from the tailbone to the top of the head. They′re portrayed as wheels of energy with colors associated with them. In fact, the word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word for wheel.

All of your chakras have to be functioning properly in order for us to live life to the fullest. If you haven′t read up on tuning your root chakra or your sacral chakra, please go back and start there first. We′re going to focus on the common questions about your solar plexus chakra and how to tune it.

1) Where is the Solar Plexus Chakra?

The solar plexus chakra is the third chakra from the bottom. It′s found right behind your belly button, which is why you′ll see it called the navel chakra in some places. It′s in the lumbar region of your spine, around vertebrae L1 - L5. It resonates with the music note of E.

Your life will give you many clues if this area needs a tuneup. Physically you may experience digestive issues or stomach disorders. If this is happening to you then by all means work on your chakra, but also go see your doctor. !Issues with this chakra can manifest as a medical condition that requires treatment.

Bear in mind that article is never intended to be a substitute for a professional diagnosis. Other indications that this energy center is out of alignment include an increase in tension and frustration, anxiety, and back pain brought on by stress.

2) What Color is the Solar Plexus Chakra?

Although the chakras aren′t anything physical—they′re wheels of energy—they do each relate to a specific color vibration. Yellow is the color of the solar plexus chakra. Yellow is confident, wise, and logical.

Yellow stones, jewelry, yellow foods, even just closing your eyes and meditating on the color yellow will help to restore balance to this area. although there′s sometimes a tendency to overthink things when yellow comes on too strong!

When using color therapy, crystals, or reiki healing stones, you′ll want to go for the yellow hues. Some suitable stones include yellow and ocean jasper, golden labradorite, and yellow topaz.

If you have a chakra pendulum and want to use it to point energy to your solar plexus, focus on the yellow area, and envision the healing energy flowing through the pendulum and into your chakra. This can help to correct any imbalance.

3) What is the Normal Function of the Solar Plexus Chakra?

The solar plexus chakra is the energy center that helps you to keep the balance between confidence and conceit, between self-respect and narcissism, and between being bold and foolhardy. It also assists with your spiritual growth, your physical energy levels, and with you working through more complex emotional issues. It also rules the intuition and the ‘fight or flight′ response.

When this area is balanced, you′ll have no trouble determining whether it′s best to stand and fight, or whether it′s best to walk away. Your emotions are balanced. You′ll be able to form your own opinions without judging others in the process.

Another sign you have a healthy solar plexus chakra is if you get things done on time, without procrastinating or letting them stress you out. You appreciate your sense of self-worth, but at the same time you don′t undervalue others.
