Solar Plexus Chakra Health
A healthy solar plexus chakra allows for flexibility and adaptability to change. It allows for spontaneity, openness and loving energy to move freely up into the heart chakra.
With channels open to the lower chakras from the solar plexus there is a sense of being grounded and an ability to go with the flow…flexible much as a young sapling is in the breeze.
A strong third chakra produces a sense of personal worth that helps to avoid excess and to respect boundaries. There is a capacity for enjoying a challenge without becoming a workaholic.
A strong and balanced third chakra helps you to have a solid sense of your own power and worth.
You are able to set goals based on your desires and act to manifest them in the world.
You have leadership qualities and are an innovator without being over bearing or controlling with others.
Your immunity is strong, you manage anger well, and though you have energy to take action in the world, you can also be peaceful and still.
Imbalances in the Solar Plexus Chakra
Imbalances in the solar plexus can lead to a need to manipulate and control others.
An excess of energy here results in insensitivity to others, burn out and perhaps intolerance to those with less energy.
Other issues that arise with excessive energy here are: tendencies toward being judgmental, aggressive, and perfectionistic.
Vanity and pride are also very real possibilities as are hatred and anger. These qualities may be openly expressed or they may be repressed.
A deficit of energy in the solar plexus chakra results in emotional neediness and attention seeking, as well as difficulty putting ideas into action. There may also be a fear of rejection, indecisiveness, lack of confidence and a poor self image.
It is not hard to see that this lack of energy can lead to depression.
When this center is weak as just described there is a tendency to be very vulnerable to the ideas, thoughts and opinions of others.
