The Solar Plexus Chakra
The Solar Plexus Chakra motivates us to bring about change. This Chakra deals with our use of energy and ability to transform it from a raw state into usable forms. The Solar Plexus Chakra is an organising chakra that gives us the will and ability to shape our lives in a powerful and effective way. It integrates us actively into the world. Optimism, self confidence, spontaneity, flexibility, sense of humour, joy and laughter are the balanced expression of the Solar Plexus Chakra.
The Solar Plexus covers the major areas of digestion such as the stomach, small intestine, liver and pancreas, as well as the spleen, one of the most important organs of the immune system, which relies on its ability to recognise what is useful and to identify and destroy harmful organisms. Indications that the Solar Plexus Chakra needs work can be overacidity, ulcers, digestive problems, allergies and intolerance and difficulty with immune system function from colds and persistent viral infections.
More serious problems may include autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue, burnout or hypertension. On an emotional level look for anxiety, stress, lack of confidence, insecurity or nervous disorders.
