7 Chakra Overview: What is Solar Plexus Chakra?

Welcome back to our chakra learning sessions. In the previous chapter, we talked about the Sacral Chakra, the second energy center, and the chakra that controls our emotions and feelings. In this recording, we will focus on to the third chakra, the Solar Plexus Chakra, and share the affirmations that help balance it.

The solar plexus chakra is located in the upper abdominal area, about 2 inches above the navel.

Solar Plexus Chakra – the source of personal power and confidence

The solar plexus functions as the center of energy associated with ego or your self-identity. It’s the seed of your personal power, self-belief, and self-worth. On top of that, it’s the foundation of your self-reliance. With the balanced solar plexus chakra, you trust your inner guidance without questioning and follow your intuition without hesitation. You don’t need anyone’s approval or validation when it comes to your decisions, small or big. On a larger scale, you unapologetically and courageously pursue your goals and aspirations in life. The solar plexus chakra empowers you to follow and not be distracted from your true path.

Connections with our Body and Emotion

Though Sacral chakra generally manifests in non-physical ways, physical symptoms can occur. Among the most common physical ailments are cysts, urinary issues, kidney
problems, lower back pain, and gynecological problems. When your sacral chakra is overwhelmed, you may experience emotions more deeply than normal, have severe mood swings, or seemingly thrive on conflict and drama.

Balance your Solar Chakra

To balance your solar plexus chakra, start with the simple meditation of imaging a round sphere of glowing yellow light in the center of the upper abdomen, and slowly concentrate on making the energy wider and brighter. You may want to listen to our Solar Plexus healing guided meditation to re-balance your Solar Plexus Chakra.

Solar Plexus Chakra and gemstones!?

Since the color of this chakra is yellow, any gem corresponding to this color will help to open the solar plexus. Tiger’s eye, citrine, yellow topaz, rhodochrosite stones are all great gems to enhance your sense of personal power.


Targeted affirmations are incredibly useful for solar chakra healing and balancing. You can repeat these positive statements multiple times a day, or anytime you get a sense your chakra might be blocked:

I love and accept myself

I choose the best for myself

I am proud of my achievements

I am in control of my life and live with a sense of dignity

I seek opportunities for personal and spiritual growth

I am able to remain happy, peaceful, and outgoing

The solar plexus chakra has a lot to do with our life purpose. Therefore, working on this chakra can also reduce procrastination. It can help you ensure you’re using your time to create a better future for yourself. May the solar plexus chakra energy be always with you.
