The solar plexus chakra is located over the stomach just below the rib cage. It is yellow and represents the fire element. It is associated with the mentor field of the aura, and regulates and processes our thoughts ideas and beliefs. Clairsentience, the psychic ability to physically and emotionally sense or feel energy vibrations (including emotions), is it located in the solar plexus chakra. This chakra, one of our major personal power energy centres, helps to determine our sense of identity and confidence, our levels of will and ambition, our ability to manifest our destiny and prosper, our determination, and all sense of empowerment. Related organs and parts of the body are the muscles, the stomach, the pancreas, the liver, the goal platter, metabolism, immune system, kidneys, and the nervous system.
When a solar plexus chakra is balanced, we have a strong sense of self but are willing to be flexible, open, and teachable in our behaviour, beliefs, and choices. We feel empathy and at the same time affirm strong and healthy boundaries with others. We have the energy and determination to pursue our goals and desires, but are willing to let things go when they are not good for us or are not working. We prosper, thrive, and flourish in the world and have a good healthy digestive and elimination system. We manage our stress feelings, and desires in a way that is balanced and wise.
When a solar plexus chakra is deficient, we constantly feel frustrated, blocked in our desires or endeavours, ill at ease or insecure, and confused about who we are and what we want. we are easily influenced by others and routinely allow our boundaries to be violated(if we’re even clear on what those boundaries are). We tend to give up before starting, self-defeating, and tend to put ourselves down a lot. We may secretly feel envy and spite with respect to the success and achievement of others, and have a fear of conflict. Digestion is slow and sluggish, and we often feel fatigued overwhelmed and possibly depressed. We are prone to drug addiction, particularly with opiates, marijuana, and prescription painkillers.
When a solar plexus chakra is excessive we tend to be domineering, authoritative, abusive, and close-minded in our beliefs. We are insensitive to the needs and feelings of others, and feel overly concerned with our own. While we may be prospering, it is never enough; we always need more and would take more than our fair share when offered(or not). Our temper is quick to flair, and we may frequently violate the boundaries of others. We push ourselves too hard, and are too demanding of ourselves and others, and may maintain impossibility high standards that we strive to achieve. We place a premium on social and economic status; we often find ourselves in conflict with others, especially authoritarian figures; and frequently feel wired yet tired. We are prone to having ulcers, inflammatory digestive conditions, acid reflux, and addictive behaviours such as alcoholism and gambling.
