The solar plexus chakra is the core of your inner strength and power.
The third chakra is found around the solar plexus area. Its color is yellow. Is your solar plexus chakra out of balance? Too little energy in this chakra can result in lack of energy, poor self-discipline and low self-esteem. You could be unreliable and overly passive, easily manipulated and a “victim”, always blaming others. When the energy is excessive, you may be aggressive and domineering, manipulative; maybe even deceitful and controlling. You have to have the last word and are prone to temper tantrums and outbursts. You have driving ambition, are very competitive and arrogant and exceedingly stubborn.
How to heal the solar plexus chakra:
If you have a deficiency you need grounding and emotional warmth. If you have an excess of this chakra look at meditation and deep relaxation. Abdominal workouts can strengthen that area (planking is great – or try a Pilates class). Martial arts such as Judo or Tai Chi would be excellent. Psychotherapy can help you build up the necessary strength to release or contain anger and strengthen your sense of autonomy.
