How To Open Your Solar Plexus Chakra
Advanced spiritualists are always obsessed with their chakra. Beginners in spiritual practices, probably, don’t understand the meaning of chakra and the concept is very complicated. Of course, to become stronger spiritually you need very much practicing, efforts, faith, and hard work. To learn the secrets of the universe, your soul and the purpose of existence, you will have to prove yourself worthy.
When you reach some of the highest levels of spirituality and learn how to manipulate your energy, you will see that chakra is explained the easiest way as your own energy(at certain spots) that you could materialize, visualize and manipulate.
This means that your chakra energy has a lot of potential and through your physical abilities in some places of your body ( chakra centers) you could use and manipulate the energy in your favor. There are seven chakra centers in our body and, in this article, we will focus more on the Solar Plexus chakra center and the benefit of using it.
You also need to know that blocked chakras could also be an issue for our bodies and spirits. All chakras are connected with colors and natural elements. Spiritualists also connect chakras with associated animals. This way the spiritual and mystical values of chakra centers better explained and have a metaphorical meaning too.
Solar Plexus Chakra Information Summary

Emotional Issues and Behaviors of Blocked Solar Plexus Chakra: If there’s a blockage around the Solar Plexus Chakra, your confidence will be very shaky. If there is only a small blockage, there may only be insecurity in one specific area. A larger blockage will cause generalized self-esteem problems. You might be haunted by thoughts that you are not good enough, and you may feel unable to draw useful lessons from life’s challenges. Physical difficulties associated with a blocked Solar Plexus Chakra may include digestive discomfort and troubles with memory.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is responsible for our personal behavior and social interaction. It is also called the ‘chakra of personal power’. This chakra is responsible for how you respond to criticism, self-doubt and self-forgiveness, self-discipline, your independence, purpose, stability and self-confidence.
This chakra is very important for the most important steps of all in spirituality- to ACKNOWLEDGE YOURSELF. By using this chakra you will be able to find out what your purpose is, you will also be able to discover your true identity and discover all of your flaws and traits.
However, most of the people begin to worry about themselves and feel that something is not ‘right’ when their Solar Plexus Chakra is BLOCKED.
When this chakra is blocked you experience helplessness, anxiety, low-self esteem, huge self-doubt, unclear visions for the ‘big picture’ in lie and future, lack of purpose and direction, as well as depression and anger.
Physical symptoms caused by a blocked solar plexus chakra also include the following:
Difficulties with short-term memory
As you can see, our chakras play a huge part both for our bodies and spirits. However, you need to know how to open and heal your Solar Plexus Chakra. One of the best ways is to use SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA STONES. These are the stones that are going to help you keep your chakra open. Just keep one of these stones in your pocket:
Amber: Your solar plexus chakra is marked as yellow on maps of the chakras, so yellow is often used to symbolize it more generally. Amber stones are an orangey-yellow in color, and they are linked to both confidence and mental clarity. Use this stone if you’re struggling to make a decision.
Yellow tourmaline: Yellow tourmaline is physically striking, and you’ll often see it advertised as a “detox” stone on a list of solar plexus crystals. It’s all about getting rid of negativity (both in views of yourself and the past).
Citrine: Another yellow solar plexus crystal, this pale stone is sometimes called the “success stone”. Any journey related to personal empowerment goes well with acquiring a piece of citrine, and you can also use citrine for self-esteem.
Another way to open and heal your chakras is definitely meditation and yoga. Meditation, like we already said many times before, is the best approved and confirmed ‘tool’ for seeking spiritual divinity, inner-peace and keeping a good mental and physical health. Meditation will also help you go deeper into your own soul and manipulate your own energy. There are few steps below to help you move onto a visualization stage that will help you access your solar plexus chakra:
1.Turn your attention to your upper abdomen, where the solar plexus chakra resides.
2.Picture a round sphere of glowing yellow light in the center of the upper abdomen, and slowly concentrate on making the energy wider and brighter.
3.Imagine the sphere rotating (clockwise) as it grows, and feel the area becoming warmer and more relaxed as you do this.
4.After 3-5 minutes, let the energy dissipate throughout your body, take a few deep breaths again and open your eyes.
At the end of this article, we must mention that you should find chakra food diets (there are various all over the internet) and diet suggestions that will help you keep your chakras in a good shape. Always be aware what you eat- your body and soul are strongly connected. The best food for Solar Plexus Chakra is definitely the food rich with fiber intake, yellow peppers, complex carbohydrates, and corn.
