The solar plexus chakra is the energy center of ambition, confidence, and self-belief. This yellow energy hub is the home of your personal power. The fire energy found here brings out your drive and enthusiasm, and motivates you to strive toward your goals.
What Is The Solar Plexus Chakra?
The third chakra in your chakra system, the solar plexus chakra is located above the navel and below the breastbone.
It's said to be the home of the ego, which despite popular belief, also comes with positive benefits, such as allowing us to build boundaries, tap into our inner strength, and feel good about ourselves.
Most importantly however, the solar plexus chakra is the seat of free will. The right energy flow here can provide the self-confidence to make decisive choices and engage your willpower.
In Sanskrit, the solar plexus chakra is called Manipura. It translates to "city of jewels" and is commonly associated with fire and the power of transformation.
Signs of an open and balanced solar plexus chakra
When you have an open solar plexus chakra, you'll feel:
- Confidence in yourself and your abilities
- In complete control of your life
- Meaning and purpose in all that you do
- Self-disciplined and driven
- Motivated to succeed
In short, the solar plexus chakra is the energy center of power. It's the chakra that enables you to transform your thoughts into actions.
Signs of a blocked solar plexus chakra
Solar plexus chakra imbalance of any kind is bad news. Before we get onto how solar plexus chakra crystals can help, it's important to identify how a blocked solar plexus chakra can affect you so that you can become aware if your energy flow is hampered.
An underactive solar plexus chakra blocks your energy flow and causes depression and laziness.
If your solar plexus chakra is underactive, you may feel:
- Lack of self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Lack of purpose
- No drive
An overactive solar plexus chakra can send your energy into overdrive, negatively affecting your well-being.
If your solar plexus chakra is overactive you may feel:
- Power hungry
- Overly controlling
- Excessively stubborn
- Angry or aggressive
If you have any of these symptoms, there's a good chance that your manipura chakra is not correctly balanced. While this might be seen as a bad thing, in reality, you now have the awareness (and soon, the remedy) to bring stability and balance.
How can crystals help with the solar plexus chakra?
As the solar plexus chakra resonates with the color yellow, many solar plexus chakra stones can have an uplifting effect simply by sharing the same color. Yellow stones are often bursting with positive energy. They're the perfect choice for enhanced self-confidence, amplified ambition, and more motivation.
Healing stones for the solar plexus chakra take many different forms, but they all have a special affinity with the third chakra. It's also worth noting that most stones for solar plexus chakra healing also happen to be fantastic gemstones for abundance and prosperity. This is largely due to their ability to shift your mindset to a can-do attitude.
Use the following list of solar plexus chakra stones to relight your fire energy and unlock the door to personal empowerment.
