Each energy center (chakra) of your body is unique, so each one responds best to a particular healing modality. That’s why I’m presenting a video series that shows you the best healing modalities for each chakra.
In this article, we’re looking at the best ways to boost and balance the solar plexus chakra. It’s the yellow chakra that resides in your core, and it’s element is fire.
When your 3rd chakra is strong, you’re confident, energetic and decisive. You think clearly and act quickly, and you don’t allow other’s opinions to sway you away from yours.
Conversely, if you’re weak in your core chakra, you may have inertia, feel insecure and allow others to control you. You may also flip-flop like crazy when trying to make a decision and end up making no decision at all!
Very few people know that the 3rd chakra in the solar plexus is tied to the mind, but it’s the main reason we have a “gut” feeling when we make a decision and why scientists are now finding brain cells in our stomach lining. This chakra is all about your thinking and what you like and don’t like. It is powerful, and masculine, and it’s the home of your Divine Warrior.
Because it’s so fiery and powerful, I find that some women are very uncomfortable being in this chakra. If this is the case for you, I hope you choose to work through it, because stepping into your solar plexus chakra will allow you to end all victimhood in your life and it will also allow you to shine and be seen.
You deserve to live in all your power! So let’s go.
Here are the best healing modalities for the 3rd chakra:
1) Do “Breath of Fire” — a yogic breath that emphasizes quick, forceful breaths. Check out my video below for a quick tutorial on how to do it.
2) Gaze with Concentration at a Candle Flame – this builds 3rd chakra energy in a calmer way than breath of fire. Sight is the sense that is related to the solar plexus chakra so this exercise is good because it incorporates both the element of fire and the sense of sight. It’s also one of the rare 3rd chakra exercises that is actually relaxing.
3) Do a Fire Walk – Life Coach, Tony Robbins is famous for his fire walks. Thousands have done it, including me, and Oprah too. You can watch a video of Oprah walking on fire with Tony here (look closely enough and you can see Oprah mouthing the words “Holy Shit”).
4) Work with Yantras – another yogic tradition, yantras are beautiful symbols of sacred geometry that have power. This one (right) is good for the 3rd chakra. Once again, you are involving the sense of sight when you stare at a yantra, so it is particularly suited for healing the solar plexus chakra.
5) Do Core Work – since your 3rd chakra is in your solar plexus and it’s all about taking action, doing any kind of core work will boost and heal it. Check out a core yoga or pilates class, or any other type of workout that focuses on the abdominal area. Watch this video I created for a quick core workout and read the related article here.
6) Do Puzzles and Other Mind Games – since the 3rd chakra is related to your concentration, focus and mental clarity, activities that challenge the mind are good for healing it. Brain teasers, crosswords or any other kind of mental challenges work great.
7) My Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ – my solar plexus temporary healing tattoo will give you more get up and go. It was the first healing tattoo I manufactured, because I wanted to wear it and shift my own 3rd chakra energy, so I would have enough confidence and energy to create all the tattoos, packaging, website, etc. I’m so glad I began with the 3rd chakra, because it worked like a charm, and I did finish creating all of them. As of now, my healing tattoos have been worn by satisfied customers in 33 countries!
