Your Solar Plexus Chakra is located just below your ribcage, approximately 2 inches above your naval and represented by the color yellow.
Your Solar Plexus Chakra is called the power center because it is developing at the time in your life when you begin to make your own decisions and test limits. Some people call this the ‘terrible-twos’ however what is actually occurring during this time in human development is a connection to the outside world as the young human begins to move freely with more developed dexterity. At this time, the child is learning how to relate to the outside world through action. While chakra 1 relates to the physical body (and its survival in the beginning) and chakra 2 relates to the emotional realm of feelings, chakra 3 – the Solar Plexus, combines the physical and the emotional to relate to and inside of the outside world of things, rules, language, and other people.
When we are adults, who we are in the world; our actions, our self esteem, our self confidence, and our self respect, is expressed energetically through this chakra. If this chakra becomes imbalanced or blocked some of the physical ailments include poor digestion, ulcers, diabetes, hypoglycemia, arthritis, pancreas and liver malfunction. Some of the emotional side effects of a blocked SPC include fear, hate, indifference, stress, self-loathing, need for power, narcissism, or manipulation.
A healthy SPC is characterized by the experience of happiness and joy through work, good digestion, balanced relationships, and an ease with which one can be themselves.
