Empower Your Solar Plexus Chakra

The 7 Week Chakra Tease

This article is the 3rd in a 7 part series inviting you to take a closer look…and feel…of your energy, one chakra at a time.

Empower Your Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra, which governs our will, self-esteem and sense of personal power, is located in the solar plexus. When energy flows freely through this center, we’re confident about our ability to manifest our intentions and desires. When the third chakra is blocked, however, we feel powerless and frustrated.

The solar plexus acts as a reservoir for powerful energy.  Getting in touch with your solar plexus chakra is one of the most empowering acts of self-definition and self-worth any of us can make. With a balanced solar plexus, vibrant and healthy, you can fearlessly walk away from disrespect, set firm boundaries, negotiate from a position of self-worth, and truly feel and express your power safely.

“I am worthy of the best in life.”

“I am capable.”

“I am powerful.”

“I set and reach my goals.”

“I stand up for myself and for what I believe in.”

“I know who I am and where I am going.”



Take a few minutes to sit in meditation and tune into your solar plexus chakra. Are there any harmful words that need to be burned away?  Negative self-talk?  Childhood put-downs?  Let these words come to you and visualize them burning away in the sacred flames of your solar plexus. When the fire is clear, begin your positive affirmations and fuel them, power them up, with the heat and strength of your inner solar energy.

Try and carry out this exercise daily this week. Most of us have many years of negative internalized self-talk to break through. This is your opportunity to begin to consciously change your inner dialogue, which fuels the change for a healthier life.



Imagine yourself standing at the top of a mountain. It is still quite dark, but dawn is about to break. At the distant edge of the horizon, the sun begins to rise. You raise your arms in greeting as this powerful force emerges from the darkness of the night. Sunlight begins to flood the land, and you feel the warmth on your body.
As you breathe in the golden light from the sun, it ignites the spark within your own fire centre. You are filled with this brilliant solar energy. Your power centre is radiating with vital life force. Take this power into your life and move forwards with confidence and courage.

The 7 Week Chakra Tease will continue next week with the Heart Chakra. Think relationships, alive, love, compassion and devotion!

Until then….stay clear and breathe deeply.

In the Spirit of Clear Living,
