Healing The Solar Plexus Chakra

The Solar Plexus Chakra Represented by yellow.

This chakra is located at the diaphragm. Its Sanskrit name is manipura. It is associated with our physical center, personal power, desire, inner-strength, emotions, instincts, and “gut” feelings. If the solar plexus chakra becomes unbalanced, you may feel very stressed all the time and powerless to gain control, leaving you mentally and physically exhausted.

You may have “gut” feelings but are not sure of what or where they are coming from, contributing to your distress and discomfort. The stress of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra also contributes to poor memory and concentration.


Common psychological symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra: lack of memory and concentration, frequent fearing, feeling uncentered, sugar addictions, insomnia, and eating disorders. Common physical symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra: digestive and intestinal disorders, indigestion, food allergies, eating disorders, poor metabolism, diabetes, obesity, eczema, acne, and other stress-related skin conditions.

Balancing and opening the solar plexus chakra allows you to feel centered in your mind, body, and spirit. Relaxed and comfortable in your own skin. The energy of this chakra permeates to the other chakras relieving many physical and psychological dis-eases or disorders. It allows you to be more aware of your own energy and being, comfortable in your decisions, and psychically connected to your “gut” feelings so that you may act accordingly with confidence.
