Chakras are the energy centers of our bodies. Each chakra has its own energetic purpose, and each one plays an important role in our health and well-being.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with the color yellow, which symbolizes the Sun – the energy source for all life on planet Earth. Since the Solar Plexus Chakra is the central point of our body, where our life force energy stems from, we could say that essentially, this chakra is the Sun of our body.
Our vitality, willpower, and sense of self-esteem are all concentrated in our Solar Plexus Chakra. The main purpose of this chakra is to teach us to respect ourselves and to step into our power.
When our Solar Plexus Chakra is activated and in balance, we feel energetic, optimistic, and empowered. A healthy Solar Plexus Chakra aligns us with the flow of abundance and gives us a boost of confidence to manifest our dreams.
Working with crystals can help us activate and heal our Solar Plexus Chakra by strengthening our earth connection as well as connecting us to the higher realms and speeding up our spiritual growth.
Here is my selection of 3 crystals for working with the Solar Plexus Chakra:
There are many reasons why our Solar Plexus Chakra can become imbalanced, such as absorbing too much toxic energy from the people and places that surround us or emotional trauma and abuse. An imbalanced Solar Plexus Chakra can become either passive or overactive.
A passive Solar Plexus Chakra causes fears, phobias, lack of motivation, and low self-esteem, and can result in severe fatigue. An overactive Solar Plexus Chakra, on the other hand, often leads to violent and egoistic behavior, aggression, abuse of power, and greed.
Working with a Heliodor crystal can help balance both passive and overactive Solar Plexus Chakras. This crystal has incredibly uplifting energy, filling you with positive vibes and clearing away negativity and toxic energies. Just like a ray of sunlight shining through, Heliodor’s bright yellow hues penetrate and purify any existing energetic blockages within your Solar Plexus Chakra, leaving you with an uplifted and invigorated feeling.
If your Solar Plexus Chakra is activated, you are naturally aligned with the universal flow of abundance, and you will find that with little effort and intention-setting, you can manifest your heart’s desires. You will feel ready to step out of your comfort zone and take a risk when the timing feels right.
Heliodor is one of the best crystals of manifestation, helping you attract abundance and financial prosperity by activating and balancing your Solar Plexus Chakra.
This is a crystal with strong grounding properties that connects you to the healing and nurturing energies of Mother Earth. When you feel grounded and centered, you can more easily step into your power and take charge of your life.
You will find that setting yourself new goals and striving towards achieving them restores your sense of personal power. Working with a Mookaite crystal can help boost your ambition and drive to move forward with your life.
Mookaite can give you the necessary strength and motivation to make some changes if you’re feeling stuck in one place and can’t seem to get out of it. It is a crystal that guides you to live your life to the fullest while keeping you firmly rooted to earth.
The down-to-earth energies of a Mookaite crystal can help balance the impulsiveness and fiery emotions of those with an overactive Solar Plexus Chakra. At the same time, the grounding properties of this crystal help to build a solid foundation for your dreams and goals.
The heart-warming glow of a Honey Calcite crystal is just what you need when you are in a gloomy mood. Let the sunny vibes of this crystal brighten up your day!
The Solar Plexus Chakra can easily become blocked due to intense negative emotions, especially fear and guilt. The area of the Solar Plexus Chakra is where our emotions are “digested,” and that is why long-term negative emotions can throw this chakra off balance.
Furthermore, adopting a victim role in a toxic relationship and giving away your power are often the main underlying causes of a blocked Solar Plexus Chakra.
Working with a Honey Calcite crystal can help remove blockages and restore the free flow of energy within your Solar Plexus area. This crystal helps you release painful memories of the past and gently guides you to value yourself more and more each day.
Honey Calcite is a high-vibrational crystal that brings you clarity of mind and helps you tap into your psychic gifts. It helps you listen to the voice of your own intuition, which is extremely important in order to heal the Solar Plexus Chakra.
In fact, the old saying “trust your gut” couldn’t be more spot on, since our instinctual reactions stem from our Solar Plexus area. That is why it is so important to trust and follow our intuition when making tough choices and difficult decisions in our lives. Our intuition is our own inner-guidance system that keeps us on the best possible course and aligns us with our soul path.
A simple meditation practice for activating your Solar Plexus Chakra
Sit comfortably in a quiet space. Clear your mind by focusing on your breathing.
Take one of the Solar Plexus Chakra crystals and hold it in your hands. Now close your eyes and visualize a bright sun lighting up the area above your navel.
Feel the rays of this sun radiating all over your body, purifying each cell and charging your internal organs with powerful life force energy. Feel your whole body being cleansed of negative energy and any blockages being cleared. Feel the warm glow of sunlight embracing your body and making you feel blissful and joyful.
Now open your eyes and say the following mantra I have channeled for you out loud or quietly in your mind: I step into my power and bravely manifest my dreams. I smile, as abundance flows to me naturally.
