As you may recall from prior newsletters, The Chakras are energy centers in our body and when they are out of balance we don’t live in our potential power. These energy centers should be rotating clockwise, so if they are backwards we have to work with them to reverse the motion. We recognize 7 top centers but there are more. I will be sharing with you the 7 basic Chakras and if you have any questions you can email me. I will share 1 Chakra a week.
We have the Root Chakra, the Sacral Chakra, the Solar Plexus, the Heart Chakra, the Throat Chakra, our Third Eye Chakra, and our Crown Chakra. They follow the colors of the rainbow starting with Red.
This week we talk about the third chakra, the Solar Plexus, which is located 2 finger-widths above the navel and just below your sternum.
We recognize Yellow as the color of this chakra. Like a ray of sunshine, the glow of the solar plexus chakra lights your path and warms your body with the glow of self-confidence.
The solar plexus chakra empowers you to follow and not be distracted from your true path. The vibrant yellow of this chakra speaks to creativity, personality, intellect and ego and this chakra gives you increased awareness, clarity of thought and great curiosity. This is the source of personal power, self-belief and self-worth. The solar plexus chakra gives you the ability to rise to the occasion in times of need and difficulty or anytime you are challenged.
Your solar plexus chakra is activated:
•anytime you muster the courage to do something that scares you
•anytime you speak up for yourself
•anytime you exert your willpower and self-control
You’ll notice that in these situations, your energy is high, your posture tall and commanding and your voice firm.
Look around you at the people who are successful in whatever they do: they stand tall, speak with conviction and strength and look others straight in the eye. Their personal power is strong and they are comfortable using it! By the way, personal power does not mean power over others; it means self-mastery – the ability to master your thoughts and emotions, overcome any fear and take appropriate action in any situation.
When your solar plexus chakra is blocked, life becomes a series of disappointments and frustrations. People with a weak solar plexus chakra see themselves as victims. They pessimistically walk with their heads down, put up with poor treatment and they have low expectations and aspirations. They are shy and rarely take the leadership role – but are quick to sarcastically put the leaders down!
Persistent lack of self-confidence and self-worth erodes their resolve to do anything meaningful with their lives and settle for a dull, frustrating existence. Those suffering from a blocked solar plexus chakra usually experience low self-esteem and which can cause them to be pessimistic and vulnerable.
It doesn’t take much for the solar plexus chakra to become blocked or weakened. It may be a result of poor feedback, lack of affection, criticism, rejection, and being ignored or unappreciated. If you feel that your ideas, words and efforts are ignored or unappreciated, you have an imbalance in the solar plexus chakra.
Some people with feelings of inadequacy will dramatically overcompensate. This false show of bravado and self-glorification may be seen as confidence or even arrogance, but it is false and often crumbles spectacularly, leading to serious depression and further over-compensatory behavior. People with a healthy solar plexus chakra, on the other hand, do not boast of their accomplishments – they let their results speak for themselves.
As well as manipulative and selfish behavior, a closed third chakra can manifest in physical and mental problems. Because this particular chakra is situated in the center of the body, physical difficulties often originate in this area. Digestive problems such as gas, nausea, cramps, ulcers, diabetes, celiac’s disease and liver disease are associated with the third chakra. Other diseases: Food allergies, gallstones and hepatitis
The associated body parts are your Respiratory system, diaphragm, digestive system, liver, sympathetic nervous system, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas.
These gemstones will help keep the Solar Plexus balanced:
•Amber: Yellowish orange Organic gemstone ; Used to cleanse and balance. Increases mental clarity and promotes confidence.
•Citrine: Pale yellow, Semi-precious. This “success stone” is used to cleanse and balance. Increases personal empowerment and confidence.
•Lemon quartz: Yellow; A stone of optimism used to cleanse, activate and balance the third energy center.
•Yellow Jasper: Yellow; Semi-precious. Known as a stone of protection, yellow jasper activates and balances the solar plexus chakra.
•Yellow Tourmaline: Yellow; Semi-precious. A stone good for detoxifying the body, yellow tourmaline is used to cleanse, activate and balance.
•Tiger’s Eye: Golden brown: Semi-precious. A protective stone, tiger’s eye is good for grounding, cleansing and balancing.
Remember that all of your chakras must be balanced for you to feel well and for things to flow evenly. You must balance your Root Chakra before the Sacral Chakra and work your way up when clearing all of your chakras.
Also remember when you are connected you are in the here and now, capable of receiving divine guidance and taking aligned action.
Now to share some info from me
I continue to share my healing and spirituality to keep you up to date with my journey.
My Solar Plexus was blocked most of my life. I never realized it until I began studying spirituality. My therapist always told me she thought I was absorbing other people’s negative “stuff”. It made sense because of my ailments but I didn’t know how to overcome it. Finally I learned about my chakras and how to protect myself. I have written about my advancement in my many collaborative books and continue to do so.
When I chose the above card a second one flew out. It is the “Parents” card. Ironically, I spent most of my time for a week at the hospital with my mother. Now she is at my home recuperating. She wasn’t doing well until only yesterday. She is at my house because I don’t have to work and 4 of my 5 siblings do. I am her primary caretaker and my sisters come a couple hours each evening.
Considering my own situation I am proud to say I have been able to care for her without too much trouble. At times I can’t breathe well so have to just sit next to her and we both compare symptoms.
We are still trying to learn why my breathing is a problem. I have seen so many specialists and the only answer so far is Mild Asthma. My cardiologist feels my heart is fine with only minor blockages in 3 main arteries. He is clearing me for surgery and suggested that I may feel better after it because everything seems to be pressing up and possibly onto my heart. I met with my sleep specialist and I will get my sleep study in February. Since I am claustrophobic she showed me the advanced masks that only cover my nose. They should be more comfortable and cause no problems.
Getting back to my mother, we had a lot of concern because there were no real answers. My siblings and I kept pushing but it was hard. We finally met one nurse who explained everything that was going on. I believe there should be an advocate in each department in the hospital that can keep the patient and their family informed of what is going on. They do tests and don’t explain exactly what they are looking for and then we wait forever for the results if we even receive them.
For this reason I always remind you to be aware of your power and take control of your own health. You must be insistent to be sure you get answers. When you are in need of care insist that all the reports are reviewed completely and if you feel you are not being listened to, it is time to find a different doctor. If you need someone to speak to, I am here for you.
I am sad to say we must look for a home for our loving cat, Precious. Tony is very allergic to her and although he has put his allergy aside to love her, it is time for him to take care of his health. If anyone lives in Suffolk County, New York and is interested in adopting Precious, please call us at 631-619-2040
