Solar Plexus Chakra

What are the Chakras?

The human body is 100% energy, along with science all the major religions of the world validate this fact. The Hindu literature written in 1600 BC talks about this energy distribution in form of Chakras.

Chakras are the energy centers within our body that regulate all of our bodily processes. From the way our organs function, to how strong is our immune system, to the way we feel and express our emotions; it’s all regulated by these energy points.

The consent energy centers are not only mentioned in Hinduism, but their basic idea can also be seen in Chinese medicines and Acupuncture.

There total of seven Chakras in our body which is associated with seven different energy points from the base of our spine to the top of our head:

  • Crown Chakras: spirituality
  • Third Eye Chakra: Awareness
  • Throat Chakra: Communication
  • Heart Chakra: Love and healing
  • Polar Plexus Chakra: Wisdom and power
  • Sacral Chakra: Sexuality and creativity
  • Root Chakra: Basic trust

Each chakra has its own frequency like any other energy in the universe.

Since we humans are made up of energy, it is important to manage these critical energy centers. Balancing our energy centers will help us function more optimally, we will be more balanced psychologically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our body is in the state of homeostasis, which is a state of natural health when our energy is balanced.

How to Heal/Unblock Solar Plexus Chakra?

Emma Lyons on Solar Plexus Episode of Life Adventurist Podcast, says, “First you have to recognize what it is and then you acknowledge that it’s there and be okay with it, ironically. You actually think you’re pushing it away, but actually, you’re holding it on. You’re squeezing it in and you’re not letting it go. You’re actually retaining the attachment to it.”

Acceptance of the blockage is the first step to healing. Then, for starts you can try:

  • Breaking your routine and taking risks you have been running away because of your inner fears.
  • Distancing yourself from critical and negative situations and people.
  • Meditation
  • Mantra
  • Working with energy healers
  • cutting ties with unhealthy attachments
  • Essential oils

Healing your imbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra is a long process, it takes time and dedication and concentration to balance the Chakra. And do remember; cleaning the Chakras is not about transforming yourself into a completely different person, it is about finding yourself.

As Emma Lyons puts it, “it all about accepting who we are in our uniqueness and our creative, the creative beings that we are and that’s part of it accepting your faults or your failings, or, some things that aren’t just for you.”
