Solar Plexus Chakra: Evaluating Strengths and Weakness
This segment is excerpted from Fully Human, Fully Alive: Embodying the Wisdom of the Chakras. In the book there is a full discussion of energy and how the human energy system functions followed by an in depth exploration of each chakra with insights, questionnaires for individual discovery, and a link to a recorded guided meditation focused on building and strengthening the energy of a particular chakra.
Following are questions to help you tune into the energetic state of your Solar Plexus Chakra.
