Have you ever had feelings of underachievement? Periods of time where you think lowly of yourself, you’re afraid of what other people are thinking or saying about you behind your back? Feelings of depression or insecurity? The inescapable and often irrational fear of being a powerless human being who simply cannot do anything right? Do you feel ashamed of yourself with out warrant?
This could mean you Solar Plexus Chakra is out of whack. Listen, I am not a doctor, i am not a trained counselor, but I am a crazy hippie lady who likes pretty rocks and sitting criss cross applesauce in the middle of a room with my eyes closed.
Let me start off by saying:
I wish I could go to one of those resorts, where I am pampered with massages, facials, seaweed wraps, and whatever else Gwenyth Paltrow says is good for my vagina. Alas, jade eggs and steam from a virgin’s sweat is out of my price range. So I have to resign myself to homegrown techniques. Essential oils and crystals are my go to jam when I am all out of virgin sweat.
When your Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced you have a sense of achievement, high self esteem, security in life, and you feel love for yourself. The Solar plexus is the source of will power and strength to achieve your goals.
Located in the upper abdomen your Solar Plexus is the center of positive energy and self confidence. When that chakra is unbalanced all this goes out the window. But how can you change that? Essential oils and crystals are the easiest way to put yourself in the rights. We live busy lives, and meditation may not always fit into our schedules, but a few strokes of an energetic roller ball can completely change the game in balancing chakras.
I start off by cleansing and blessing my crystals by using a sage smudge stick. I project intention into the crystals. For the Solar Plexus, Citrine is my preferred choice. Citrine is regarded as the memory stone and is believed to elevate optimism and energy. In working with the solar plexus chakra it warms the core and radiates power, centeredness, confidence, and endurance. Citrine is absolutely amazing for this purpose because of it’s unique property. Citrine is one of the few stones that clears negative energy rather than absorbing it. It welcomes a wide range of positive possibilities. It’s basically the friend you call when having a bad day, and they show up with a frosty bottle of Moscato and two glasses.
I also really love utilizing my essential oils to balance my chakras. The Solar Plexus responds well with Lemon, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Rosemary. I like to inhale these oils directly, and place them into a crystal roller ball! Get yours HERE! I keep my chakra roller balls at the ready, you never know when you’ll have a day that will unbalance your Solar Plexus Chakra.
