Personal Power And Our Solar Plexus Chakra
Part #4 of the course "Chakra Info Series"
Empower Your Self
Unfortunately, there are so many individuals out there that walk around with low self esteem and a lack of confidence. Maybe you know someone like this. Maybe you are one of these people yourself.
Often people with blocked solar plexus chakras could have gone through an emotionally rough time during childhood - and I speak from experience here. You may have been told that you are not good enough or that you are too fat, too thin, too pale too ..... whatever the case may be. I want you to understand right now that if you were told something like this, it's not who you are!
True story! That - whatever they called you - is NOT who you are unless you CHOOSE to believe what they said.
You see, the person that told you this, would have had a blocked root chakra, a blocked sacral chakra AND a blocked solar plexus at the very least! Oh dear. They were just saying these things out of their own victim mentality to try to control, humiliate and sometimes, intimidate another.
If this is the case, these people have given you a wonderful opportunity for growth. After all, when a seed is pressed into the dirt and covered in cow manure, stomped on and soaked ..... after a while, we grow :)
Don't let anyone elses idea of you, become your reality. You are here for YOU :)
Look on each day in confidence, put a spring in your step and smile. Lay some strong foundations for your mind and get happy! Today is the beginning of the rest of your life so make it count - baby steps :) The solar plexus chakra is not just about personal power however! Anxiety can be a BIG player in a blocked solar plexus chakra. Let's take a closer look at the solar plexus chakra.
The solar plexus chakra is located above the belly button
It relates to our power and control - Personal Power, humour, curiosity and awareness.
When the solar plexus chakra is balanced, we have healthy self – esteem and confidence, can easily laugh at ourselves and go with the flow of life as we know exactly who we are.
Imbalances can be caused by repressed emotions, working too much (workaholic) or being a ‘control freak’ who never slows down. Overly competitive with a fear of being ‘left behind’
Keeping in mind that everything is energy, so when we 'learn' from past experiences that we could be 'holding on to', and lets face it, some past experiences can feel very 'draining' or very 'heavy' - and when we hold on to this heaviness, it causes imbalances in our chakra energy. However, when we learn from past experiences and acknowledge them for the growth that they really can bring, then we tend to 'let go' of that heavy energy which allows our chakras to come back in to balance yet again.
When our solar plexus chakra is blocked we can feel powerless, anxious and frustrated and often feel like a victim in the world.
If you suffer from anxiety, learn what your triggers are. For me, it was driving to new places.
I would get extremely nervous and worried about where to go, what traffic would be like, what if I couldn't get a car park, what if I got lost, the roads could be closed, if that car beeps again what should I do, the GPS takes strange routes and it will freak me out even more, oh no, it might rain ...... oh man, the list went on!
I would build up this anxious energy over a matter of days before the actual trip and then sometimes, I wouldn't even go at all! I came to recognise this trigger and as I understood energy more and more, I decided to play with my thoughts around anxiousness.
I would google search where I needed to go and write out the instructions on a piece of paper. This made me feel a little calmer because I KNEW that I wouldn't get lost. I played with my thoughts around the things that I had no control over what so ever .... I let all of those things 'go'.
To this very day, if I am travelling to a far away place that I am not familiar with,I write my driving directions on a piece of paper and I get there every single time :) I had to work on shifting my energy and I took the steps that I needed to literally get from A to B.
Solar plexus chakra blockages could cause indigestion, diabetes, panic attacks, ulcers, acid reflux and stomach problems.
The solar plexus chakra is associated with the pancreas. The pancreas produces the body's supply of insulin to control blood sugar levels and produces digestive enzymes that help break down foods.
The solar plexuschakra governs the stomach, liver, gall bladder, spleen, muscles, digestion
