The Solar Plexus: The Energetic Center of Power, Wisdom, and Identity
The Solar plexus chakra represents our independence, figuring out who we are. We take this independence and enter into our willpower. The will to live and reach our aspirations in life. The main organ system of this chakra is the digestive system. The digestive system is wise; it takes whatever we put into it and knows when to take and when to throw away. There’s fire in belly to digest life’s experiences, the fuel to drive us forward
There are three main aspects to the Solar Plexus Chakra
- Wisdom. One of the main organ systems of the Solar Plexus Chakra is the digestive system. This affects us in the integration of information. The digestive system is wise- it takes whatever we put into it and knows when to take and when to let go. Connecting to this energy center allows us to connect to the wisdom of ourselves, our decision making process, too.
- Power. This is our center of power. It is important to keep our power balanced. To not give our power away too much, but to also not over power and seek to control many things in our life.
- Identity. A part of balancing our sense of power is to find and accept who we are as a person. Maintaining our sense of identity is important to keep up the work of decision making.
The solar plexus is the heart of deep belly laughter, warmth, ease and vitality from service
This meditation is designed to help you connect to and clear your Sacral Chakra.
Swadistana translates to “one’s own dwelling place.” This energy center is the storehouse of samskaras, which are the past mental impressions stored in the form of archetypes–the stories we habitually tell ourselves. The quality of this energy is Feminine, needs to be gentle, receptive, non-forceful. Sensitivity and surrender are key. Water flows, moves, and changes, so does a healthy Sacral Chakra.
Lately, the energies have been shifting from living from our power center, to our heart center. I’ve been experiencing solar plexus turbulence… this energy needs to move from our solar plexus to our heart. Expectations of relationships and power struggles need to be exchanged for unconditional love and surrender. Moving the energies from our solar plexus to the heart leads to us feeling better in this changing time.
I will do my best to explain how relationships manifest through the solar plexus and the heart center.
Living from the Solar Plexus
When we are expressing ourselves through the energy of the solar plexus, we seek to control the outcomes and circumstances of our life. This is easily seen in relationships– with others and yourself.
This is seeking to control other’s reactions. You act in ways and expect for others to react in certain ways as well. This need to be in control– the need to have power is blocking us from experiencing free and loving relationships.
This can also feel like you losing control of your relationships, that things are falling apart. From either of these places, it’s important to surrender. Surrender to the process of life. Surrender and act from the heart.
Living from the Heart
Living from your heart-center means acceptance. Acceptance for others and who they are. Accepting other’s reactions. Accepting yourself if you make a mistake. Accepting other’s mistakes.
You let others experience what they choose to, in their own time. Letting go of expectations of them, seeking the highest good for all.
This is the space of unconditional love.
Isn’t this what we all want? To be loved unconditionally.
Accept everything as an experience. A chosen experience.
This isn’t to say put up with abusive or unhealthy relationships. This means to love and accept yourself so much that you don’t obsess over getting love from anyone else. Have love and acceptance flood your own life, so this love floods into every relationship you have with others.
We are all doing the best we can, with all that we know, now.
No– we will not always be perfect at this. We will not always live this way. In the process of coming back to true, unconditional love is where the lessons are learned. Just trying is where growth happens. Just showing up opens the door to learn the lessons.
I invite you to surrender a little more into your heart-space.
I’m pleased to announce that we are now offering healing services! We offer 2 different types at the moment, Intuitive Meditations and Rainbow Readings. You will not find this kind of service anywhere else– they were revealed to me and Trask (the other author here on the blog) by our higher selves and guidance.
Our Rainbow Readings have had lots of success so far– we are able to find the blockages in your chakras, which represent the things holding you back in life. We are able to energetically clear those out, and provide guidance on keeping these limits clear and out of your life. Many people feel the effects of our work immediately, as we work directly with you.
The other kind is an Intuitive Meditation. We will tap into what you need to develop in your meditation practice, and create a channeled meditation just for you, delivered right to your inbox.
For a more in-depth descriptions please check out the Healing Services Page, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
Love you all,
On the last day of my yoga teacher training, we gave our final presentations. In the first half, we presented a yoga sequence. For the second half, we talked about our experiences through the teacher training. I was the last one to present– I was so anxious about presenting, everyone before me had gone and done a fabulous job. After I had started presenting, I was crying and way too nervous, I couldn’t follow my notes. It was embarrassing! I couldn’t believe I couldn’t even get through my presentation without having a hard time. I was never good at speaking in front of people, and I was living in my fear with everyone watching me– Crying in front of a group of people. Continue reading “Emotional Healing Through Yoga”
