Painting the Cakras – Solar Plexus Chakra

The third Chakra, located in our solar plexus, connects to our ego, will, personal power and autonomy. When off balance it can threaten our self confidence, cause depression and confusion. When in balance it brings us harmony and protection, the feeling of being comfortable with oneself and with others.

The colour of the Solar Plexus Chakra is Yellow.

The Solar Plexus Chakra’s element is Fire, so invite the energies of the fire by sitting, dancing, singing and laughing with friends around a bonfire. Get into the full light of the sun and take an invigorating walk.

Visualise the sun and the sunlight, which is going directly into your Solar Plexus Chakra and through your body. Feel the warmth of the sunlight.

Repeat as often as you wishwith eyes closed the following positive affirmations:

I do. I do enough. I am more than enough. I accept myself and stand confidently in my power. I respect differences and express my identity without imposing my will upon others. I am in harmony with all I see. I live with integrity.

As the Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the element fire, the best way to heal with aromatherapy is by burning incense or candles. Suggested essential oil aromas are Lemongrass, Fennel, Corriander, Lime, Myrrh, Frankincense, Juniper and Lemon.

Food that stimulate this chakra: corn, pineapples, squash, beans, peppers, banana, brown rice, oats, millet, quinoa, amaranth and spices (ginger, tumeric), cheese, yoghurt, kefir, cereal.

Buy a sunflower and look at the Mandala circle in the middle and the bright yellow flower petals.
