I like the way I manage my money! Do you believe that? If not, some emotions may be blocked in the third energy center – the Solar Plexus Chakra – and need to be released. This center refers to the feeling of personal power and willpower. What would it be like to live from one day to the next, to want nothing, to have no plan, to have no dream? The Solar Plexus Chakra strongly influences our identity and self-esteem. The imbalance of this energy center can lead from low self-esteem to selfish or arrogant behavior.
When the Solar Plexus chakra is unbalanced, we believe that:
🙁 We don’t know how to manage our money
🙁 We are stuck and do not know what to do next
🙁 We can’t work things out on our own
When the Solar Plexus chakra is balanced and in harmony, we feel and know that:
😀 We are good at money management
😀 We have the ability to create what we want
😀 We honor our abundance
Do you feel strong when it comes to money? Unfortunately, many women (and men) do not feel empowered in this direction. We are programmed, through preconceptions and prejudices, to believe that money has control over us, instead of us having control over money. We are told that money is evil, that they do not bring happiness. We need to heal our relationship with money. We need to free ourselves from the memories in the subconscious that keep us in a low vibration and leave room for abundance and prosperity.
The Solar Plexus chakra is located in the hollow area between the ribs, above the navel, the place where we feel that we have “butterflies in the stomach” or “oppressive boulders”.
How to heal and balance your Solar Plexus chakra?
The active color of the Solar Plexus chakra is yellow, any energy visualized during meditation with the Solar Plexus chakra is usually perceived as yellow. People who strive to improve the balance of the Manipura chakra often wear yellow clothing, eat yellow food, drink herbal tea. Copious laughter, keeping a diary, acknowledging the truth to yourself, traveling, spontaneity, following dreams – even small ones, such as a dance class or a hike in the mountains also helps.
As with each of the primary chakras, the Solar Plexus chakra also has a single-syllable mantra that is useful in meditation and other forms of healing practice: RAM. This can be repeated vocally or subvocal during meditation.
Aromatherapy has the power to awaken our sense of personal power. To balance the Solar Plexus chakra, incense your personal space and diffuse essential oils such as musk, sandalwood, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, cedar wood, cypress, geranium, juniper, petitgrain, vetiver, ylang ylang.
Citrine is the recommended stone for balancing the Solar Plexus chakra, it helps in clarity of thought, the magic of money, prosperity and manifestation. It helps to transmute vibrations with lower energy into high energy ones and provides balance, stability and abundance. If you feel the need to strengthen your manifestation skills, this is the right stone. Citrine provides mental clarity that helps maintain direction.
