The third energy center is the Solar Plexus Chakra. It sits over the stomach and the nerve ganglia under the diaphragm. It filters energy into our vital organs so that they can break down nutrients for digestion. This happens on the physical level with food and on the mental level with ideas.
This center is directly related to self-value, a primary quality in our relationships with others and the world around us. If we fail to honor ourselves and know that we are worthy simply because we exist, our sense of personal identity is weak.
Consequently this chakra deals with self-esteem, confidence and freedom of choice. It reflects how we see ourselves and exercise our innate power.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is ruled by the element of fire. This is the energy of passion, which affects how we approach the world. It controls our basic instincts in our relationship to events and people.
Living within the trap of self-limitation, this chakra reduces its energy for expressing power. Demeaning ideas prevent us from gaining an education, establishing financial stability, and achieving independence. We all have a right to a strong and healthy sense of ourselves and to live our own lives.
The Sacral Chakra has a less aggressive emotional response. This is the seat of pleasure and well-being. When we are not experiencing these emotions, frustration builds. When feelings emerge, they are often about what we desire or what we lack. This can be for love, sex, money, and joy. Learning to be grateful for what we have releases much of the frustration or sense of loss held in this chakra. We can learn to sublimate its energy into a balanced lifestyle that is focused on a positive emotional expression of what we have and do.
The Solar Plexus Chakra holds thoughts about power, confidence and freedom of choice. If we fail to value ourselves, our ideas about power may be inflated or deflated, depending on how we see ourselves in relation to others. When we know who we are we cultivate power carefully, and cherish our freedom to choose what is right for us.
The Solar Plexus Chakra quickens when we anchor our personal identity in the abiding nature of the self. This challenges the external labels we use to identify ourselves, which limit who we truly are. If we are identified with being a certain way and we maintain a specific image that people can approve, respect or accept, we live a life based upon maintaining that image and avoid dealing with our spiritual nature, our true self. Forming wholesome attitudes around selfhood, freedom of choice, personal power, and confidence stems from connecting with our innate sense of worth.
We are value itself, and there is nothing we need to do to prove our worth. Once we realize we are worthy, simply because we exist, we free our life force and liberate energy for living.
Any time we deny our essential worth, we give away our power and deplete this chakra. The foundation of the Solar Plexus Chakra is an acceptance of our intrinsic value as a person with individual rights. These concern respect for and the worth of our being. Whether or not things are going well does not affect our sense of worth. It is not negotiable, nor is it determined by external events. Negative attitudes that deny our selfhood deprive us of love, kindness, and respect. They diminish us by letting us be manipulated and exploited.
Honoring the self allows a wealth of respect, kindness, and goodness to come our way. When we acknowledge the wealth of our being, we will seek out situations and people who honor us as individuals and affirm our worth. When we value ourselves, others will have no choice but to do the same and treat us with kindness and respect. When we say yes to who we are, people will either drop out of our lives or act respectfully. Cultivating a sense of worth may seem unfamiliar at first. Begin by making small, incremental shifts in how you perceive yourself. Give this time to grow and develop. Allow the truth of your experience to keep you balanced so that you become neither inflated and bigger than you really are nor deflated, unworthy, and undervalued.
