The Solar Plexus chakra, situated below the sternum and known as the “pit of the stomach”, is a core energy centre within your physical chakra system. This chakra is responsible for communicating your purpose and sense of self through internal beliefs and external behavioural patterns.  

I KNOW is the mantra of the Solar Plexus chakra, representing an innate sense of knowing that is instinctive and intuitive. This chakra helps you understand the roles of cause and effect, the laws of creation, and cultivates confidence, integrity, strength, and leadership. 

Activation of the Solar Plexus chakra typically begins around age 15 and continues until age 21. During this period, you develop a sense of self and personal power, which matures and ebbs throughout your life. This powerful energy centre is responsible for overseeing the wellbeing of your spine, mid-back muscles, and upper digestive system, including the stomach, gallbladder, liver, and spleen. The diaphragm, parts of the adrenals and kidneys, skin, and breath are also under the energetic care of the Solar Plexus chakra. 

The Solar Plexus chakra’s colour is yellow, symbolising happiness, joy, optimism, vitality, confidence, inspiration, and power. It can also manifest as a bright yellow-gold, fiery like the Sun’s rays. When balanced, this chakra helps you function in the world from a position of self-reliance, giving you a sense of core power and teaching you to develop your leadership and partnership abilities, relying on healthy mental focus and overall physical health. 

However, an under active Solar Plexus chakra can result in anxiety, a knot in the stomach, and limiting beliefs that prevent you from staying present. You may also experience feelings of jealousy, emotional fragility, and a lack of self-confidence. Poor digestion and self-discipline are also common symptoms. On the other hand, an overactive Solar Plexus chakra can lead to pride, demanding or dominating behaviour, excessive criticism, arrogance, the need to control, stubbornness, anger, aggressivity, blurred vision, and back problems, including weight issues. 

To navigate through your perception of stress and connect more deeply with your spiritual purpose, it is important to integrate the energies of your mind-body connection and develop a strong mental focus and flourishing digestive system. Your Solar Plexus chakra can show you how you perceive yourself as an integrated, self-sufficient being in this world, helping you understand and apply causality in your life. 

As you embark on your journey through the physical chakra system, you can connect with higher realms of consciousness and elevated vibrational frequencies. It is crucial to approach spiritual development from a position of balance, grounding, and anchoring. From time to time, guided meditation can offer you the opportunity to reconnect with your Solar Plexus chakra and unlock your manifesting abilities with open hearts and compassionate minds. 


Sending Love and Light.
