The Third Chakra Energy Center – The Solar Plexus Chakra

Chakra EnergyThe Third Chakra energy center, also known as the solar plexus chakra governs acceptance of your place in the chain of life. It deals with issues such as self-esteem, rejection, and criticism.

This is the third in a series of posts about the energy centers of the body. Read other posts about the First Chakra, Second Chakra, Fourth Chakra, Fifth Chakra and Sixth Chakra also.

Have you ever felt like you have been “punched in the gut” with words from another? When someone says unkind or hurtful words to you, this is the physical area of the body connected to your personal power. If this is something repeated over and over and you do nothing about what is being said, blockages in this chakra can develop.

The third chakra is found about an inch or two above the navel, in the abdomen area below the rib cage. A ten petal yellow lotus flower and symbolized by birds represents this chakra.

Physical symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra appear as problems of the liver, spleen, kidneys, digestion, food allergies, and nervousness.

Balancing the Solar Plexus Chakra

When the third chakra is in balance, it represents your own personal power, willpower, trusting yourself, the best of your personality and healthy self-esteem. It is where our healing energy comes from. The solar plexus chakra is perhaps best known for concentration, well-being and optimism. It means we can relax and enjoy the fruits of our labors.

When this chakra is out of balance, you feel like you can’t concentrate on anything or that your personal power has been taken or drained from you. You may feel a great amount of shame, frustration, anger or resentment towards someone or something that you feel has caused emotional harm to you. It could manifest as issues with authority figures. It may seem, at least in your mind, that someone is out to get you.

Blockages can physically manifest into ulcers, liver issues, problems with digestion, heartburn, arthritis, diabetes, anorexia, and bulimia. It also deals with fear, hate, and prejudice.

Yellow and the Third Chakra

By clearing and balancing this chakra, you gain back your personal power. You can achieve balance by using a variety of methods, including scents, foods, healing crystals and binaural beats. The color yellow represents enthusiasm, confidence, warmth, optimism and joy.


Hot and spicy foods will bring energy to this chakra.

Try a cup of chamomile or peppermint tea. Both flavors are soothing and have healing effects for balancing this chakra.

Essential Oils and Incense

Try these essential oils or burn incense for bringing balance to the third chakra:  cinnamon, marigold, carnation, lemon balm, chamomile, thyme, peppermint, bergamot, patchouli.

Chakra Balancing Crystals and Stones

The use of crystals can help to bring chakras into balance. Wear them as jewelry on your pulse points such as a bracelet or necklace or carry them in your pocket.

These stones are good choices to balance the third chakra:  Citrine, Amber,Tiger Eye, Gold Calcite,Yellow Tourmaline, Jasper, and Golden Topaz.

Can your body, even your blood, vibrate with love?

Love or AboveLove is the secret to healing and it has a higher vibration. As you know, human beings are a spiritual entity that is having a physical experience. That means, you have an inner energy (spiritual) and your body (physical) is a reflection of your inner energy.

When we are having a disconnect with our inner energy or if our inner energy is disturbed, the physical part of it, the body, starts reflecting what’s underneath it. That’s where illnesses start. So by connecting with and raising your inner energy to the level of love, you can heal yourself effortlessly. You just need to know how to connect with your energy and turn it around and that’s what Christie Marie Sheldon is teaching in her Energetic Breakthrough Kit.

    Hi Ashley,

    Thanks for your comment. If you haven’t tried yoga yet, I would recommend starting with that first to bring some balance to your chakras.

Primarily, I use my singing bowls. I have a couple of them. One is large and produces a wind range of tones for vibrational alignment with the stones. The other is small and the tones are high and sweet – very nice. I sometimes use water, sun, moon and even other stones, too. But not so much now that I have the singing bowls.

Thanks for your wonderful articles! I am looking for my first dowsing pendulum and you’ve been a great help to me.
