Solar Plexus Chakra

Solar Plexus Chakra
The Solar Plexus Chakra is located at the top of your belly in the centre of your body running from front to back. The colour that is associated with this Chakra is yellow. The symbol attached is the symbol that represents the Solar Plexus.
 
This Chakra is connected to our digestive system, psychologically selves and behavioural selves. It is connected to our will power, self assurance, self discipline and taking control of oneself.
 
It is important that we ensure this Chakra (and all Chakras) are balanced. If any chakra is out of balance it can affect us physically, emotionally or spiritually. Whilst in balance it can give us feelings of:
 
Self assurance
Will power
Personal power
Self control
Intellectually powerful
Assertive
 
When it is out of balance it can give us feelings of:
Helplessness
Irresponsibility
Pedantic
Manipulative
 
The Sanskrit name is Manipura.
 
Working with the Sacral Chakra
 
Meditation
Lay or sit comfortably
Close your eyes
Breathe in through your nose
Breathe our your mouth
Long, slow, deep breaths
Imagine roots going deep into the ground
They anchor you to this plane
Imagine yellow energy coming up through the ground
Imagine a yellow cone going out from the top of your belly in front and behind you ground
The energy slowly goes up your body encompassing you
Imagine the energy flowing through and around you
It is dispelling negativity and brings only good energy
Stay like this breathing long, slow, deep breaths for as long as you want
When you are ready imagine the energy slowly stopping
Focus on your breathing
Bring your awareness back into your body
When you are back into your body slowly wiggle your fingers and toes
When you are fully back into your body slowly open your eyes
Stay where you are for a few minutes
When you are ready slowly stand up
 
Crystals
Working with your Sacral Chakra you would be best suited to use yellow crystals. Hold them in your hands carry them with you, wear jewellery with yellow stones in, place them just below your belly button whilst you meditate.
 
Nature
Walking in nature or on grass without footwear helps ground you. Do it regularly to see the difference.
