Crystals to Balance the Solar Plexus Chakra

In Sanskrit the word "chakra" translates to "wheel." This invisible life force or energy helps to keep us vibrant, healthy, and alive. There are 7 Chakras that span the length of the spine, each associated with a specific color and controls specific energies in our bodies. 

When energy is trapped in the body, it leads to stagnation. That could be a stagnation of forward momentum in your life, or a stagnation of evolution—or at its worst can become a toxic stagnation that may lead to disease in the body. This is why it's important to be aware of where you tend to hold and feel things in your body.

There is so much to learn, but at a basic level, if you can get clear about what is troubling you by looking at thought patterns and physical symptoms, you can then match it to the corresponding Chakra energy system. You can then pick gemstones based on the Chakra colors to help release and clear blockages in that energy center.

Our Chakra blog series will help you work with your body to clear blockages with focused thought, mantras, and crystals.

Where & What Is The Solar Plexus Chakra?

The Solar Plexus Chakra, also known as Manipura (meaning 'city of jewels' in Sanskrit), radiates a warm, golden, yellow glow. Nestled at the upper abdomen, this chakra is the epicenter of personal power and self-esteem.

The primary function of the Solar Plexus Chakra is all about embracing your inner sunshine and relishing the joy of life. When this chakra is in harmony, you'll feel a delightful sense of confidence, empowerment, and a genuine connection with the world.

If your Solar Plexus Chakra is out of sync, you might experience emotional roller coasters, a wavering self-esteem, creative blocks, and a struggle to find balance between assertion and humility. Digestive issues, stomach problems, chronic fatigue, and a lack of motivation can also be physical manifestations.

Ready for a little crystal Solar Plexus therapy?

Meditate with your chosen stone. Find a quiet spot, sit comfortably, close your eyes, and breathe. Picture a beam of light radiating from your crystal to your Solar Plexus Chakra, connecting with the energy of the earth for support and balance. Whether it's a crystal chunk or a cherished piece of jewelry, both act as catalysts for this transformative energy exchange.

If mantras speak to your soul, here are a few for your Solar Plexus Chakra meditation:

  • I embrace my personal power
  • Confidence flows through me
  • I am worthy of all the joy life offers
  • My inner sunshine radiates with strength
  • I honor the fire within me

Take a moment to soak in the warmth of the Solar Plexus Chakra, dear one. May your journey with the Chakras be as illuminating as the golden glow of a sunrise.
