3 Essential Lessons of Your Sacral Chakra That Will Bring You More Joy

Your 3rd chakra resides in your solar plexus and is the seat of your personal power and energy. It’s element is fire, so it’s the home of your passion and zest for life, as well as your charisma, leadership abilities, courage and “can do” attitude.

Can I get a “Hell Yeah?!”

This chakra is also the home of your so-called “ego,” so it often gets a bad rep in spiritual arenas. It’s frequently said that we must get rid of the ego to be enlightened. I don’t believe this one iota. In fact, I think it’s backwards. You must have a strong and HEALTHY ego in order to be truly spiritual.


Because it’s the WEAK ego that fights spirit and other people.

It’s not the secure man or woman who brags, argues and acts superior.

Nope, it’s the insecure person with the weak ego who does those things in order to feel he or she has intrinsic value.

And it’s sad, because we don’t have to fight for our intrinsic value. Every single one of us is a slice of the Divine. We are perfect – even in our so-called “imperfection.” We are exquisitely human versions of god/goddess energy.

I’m digressing into this a bit so you wouldn’t be afraid to embrace and value your solar plexus chakra and learn the essential lessons of this part of your energy field.

Okay, so are you truly ready to step into more self-value and personal power?

Bravo! Let’s go.

Here are the 3 Key Lessons of the Solar Plexus Chakra:

1. Be Courageous & Confident – When you step into your 3rd chakra fully, you naturally begin to embody courage and confidence. Try it now. Stand up straighter, pull your shoulders back, puff your chest a bit, and then check into your psyche. If you are good at noticing subtle shifts, you’ll feel how you’ve shifted – and guess what, others will too! This Ted Talk video by Amy Cuddy (http://www.ted.com/talks/amy_cuddy_your_body_language_shapes_who_you_are?language=en) shows how shifting into more powerful body languages changes how we perceive ourselves and how others see us. Many people tell you to “fake it.” I know that can feel disingenuous and uncomfortable, so try this: simply close vividly remember a time when you felt really confident and/or courageous, or several different times when you felt that way. If you decide to do this fully, you will find that your body naturally takes on the confidence and courage that you felt at that time.

2. Take Action — and Stay Out of Indecision – When we are not in our solar plexus chakra, we find it hard to make decisions. We feel confused or apathetic. Indecision is an energy sapper. Don’t go there. Just make a choice. Don’t worry about whether it’s the “perfect” choice, just make one! If you stay in indecision, you have no momentum, but if you make a decision, even a “wrong” one, you can then course correct. Almost any decision clearly made is better than a state of powerlessness and indecision. Get it?

3. Allow Yourself (and Others) to SHINE! – You are a one-in-a-trillion gem. There is nobody else exactly like you, and there never will be. You owe it to yourself and to the rest of the people on this fair planet, to really be yourself and to let yourself shine. If you’ve ever been around young kids, you know they want your attention a lot. They ask you to look at their drawing, their dance, the funny face they’re making. They need you to SEE them. Well, we all have this little kid inside of us who needs to be seen. But often, as we are growing up, we aren’t seen, or worse we are told to shut up or to stop showing off and that sets a life pattern of dulling our brilliance. Well… that was then, and this is now. Your solar plexus chakra wants you to claim your bright and shiny self, and to support others in shining too!

I hope these lessons help you to embrace, rather than fear, your potent solar plexus chakra (and your healthy ego), because when you fully embody your personal self, you can be a powerful and charismatic agent of change in the world.

Love and shiny blessings,
