Solar Plexus Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra is the third chakra and is located between the belly button and the solar plexus on our bodies.  It is our power center.  It’s color is yellow and it, like all chakra colors it radiates out from that area of our body.  If it is in balance we have a healthy sense of self-confidence, peace and are open to others opinions. We have self-discipline, accept responsibility for our actions or inaction and have a warm personality.  If blocked we look at life as a struggle and wonder when it is going to be our turn at being happy.  The glass is never half full and blame others for what has gone wrong in their lives.  Trusting your own judgement is not one of the tools on your belt.  This chakra allows you to move forward in your life, if you are feeling stuck, you are probable blocked in this chakra also.

Healing this chakra is about wearing yellow, eating yellow foods, imagining yellow radiating out of the chakra point on your body.  Do self-esteem exercises and begin to make decisions and to trust your instincts and judgments.    Begin to take your power back by doing things for yourself and moving forward in your life by making decisions that will move you forward and accepting responsibility for those decisions.  You will need to stop judging yourself harshly and to encourage your inner child to feel safe with the decisions that you make.  Loving yourself and building self-confidence is essential for this chakra.  The following link will help you to let go of what is no longer working for you and what you no longer have control over.  You can then replace it with the confidence in yourself you will need to balance this chakra.

Here is the link. Enjoy!

I became a therapist in an attempt to understand my own childhood and what happened there and how it made me who I am, exhibiting the behaviors that were not always positive, very often self-destructive. I used Art Therapy to help me understand things in my past that were stopping me from making better decisions in my present day. I used Behavioral Science to help me understand underlying causal factors, roots to the present day behaviors that I was seeing in myself. Both help me to change those behaviors/thoughts that were causing me to make self-destructive decisions that were causing pain in life. I have been a therapist since 1985 and have an undergraduate degree Art and behavioral science (double major) from the University of Maine. My graduate work was done at Marywood university and I have a degree in Art Therapy. I have certificates in Forensic Interviewing and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy. I have 22 out of 30 credits toward a degree in Trauma Therapy from Drexel University. I started out as a Community Support Worker, Program Manager/Clinical Supervisor, Family therapist and Outpatient therapist.
