The Solar Plexus Chakra is the third Chakra. It is located just above your navel, and it resonates with the color yellow. Chakras are the energy centers which exist in your subtle etheric body. This is the energy center associated with self belief, self worth, ego, courage, confidence, and personal power. It is important for this area to be balanced so that we don't experience negative emotional and physical health issues.
Often in childhood we may experience certain traumas such as physical or mental abuse, abandonment, or wrongful mental programming. We can carry that energy into our adult lives, and it can cause this center to become out of balance. The Solar Plexus Chakra plays an important role in our self confidence and self worth. When this area is out of balance or blocked, we can experience feelings of depression or anxiety, lack of self control, low self esteem, and inability to maintain healthy boundaries. Addiction can also play a role when this Chakra is blocked or unbalanced due to the need to mask or ease these feelings.

Meditation is a great and effective way to balance and clear your Chakras. Below is a meditation I like to do when my Solar Plexus Chakra feels out of balance.
1. Hold your crystals in your left hand while sitting, or place them on your body above the naval while lying down.
2. Take a deep breath in and imagine a white light coming into the top of your head, and filling your body
3. When you breathe out imagine a dark cloud of smog releasing any negative energy and stress.
4. Imagine a yellow circular ball of light below your naval spinning clockwise. Every time you breathe in imagine this yellow light getting bigger and brighter. When you breathe out imagine all of the blockages and negative energy leaving through your mouth in a grey or black smog.
5. Repeat out loud or in your head "I am confident. I am worthy. I have the courage to conquer"
5. Repeat this for 5-30 minutes.
When this center is clear, you will feel lighter and confident. This meditation helps to build self worth, and with seeing your true potential, while giving you the courage to manifest your goals. You may need to repeat this meditation multiple times, or whenever you are feeling any of the negative emotions listed above. It is recommended that you make it a practice to clear your chakras regularly in order to maintain balance.
