What is the Solar Plexus Chakra?
The Solar Plexus Chakra is also known as our 3rd Chakra. It governs our identity, personality, self-worth and helps us find our true purpose. This chakra also gives us the ability to overcome our fears and challenges. It helps master our thoughts and make responsible choices.
A fully developed Solar Plexus chakra helps us be our most authentic selves. It embodies our unlimited potential to put our thoughts and ideas into action and transform our goals into reality.
The 3rd chakra becomes imbalanced when it is triggered by shame, stress and abuse. This imbalance manifests itself as manipulative behaviour, aggression, poor self-image, stomach pain, ulcers, heartburn or loss of appetite.
It’s important to remember that all our chakras are in constant flux: Sometimes they’re open and at times blocked and everything in between. A reminder that we are all having a human experience!
The Solar Plexus deals with Will Power and goes out of balance due to Stress.
