Your Center of Power: The Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra is our power center, the center of personal strength, learning and comprehension. It helps guide us by creating a strong sense of self, setting of personal boundaries, and building of self-esteem and willpower.

This chakra is located around the navel and the color is yellow. When this chakra is in balance, we have the confidence to stand strong in our own power, hold solid and healthy boundaries with those around us, find the motivation and drive to reach our goals and have the courage to overcome obstacles. Blockages or imbalances can cause emotions uncontrolled anger and irritation, low self-confidence, and overly analytical.

Ways to balance the Solar Plexus Chakra


Yoga poses such as bow, boat, mountain, warrior, and a seated spinal twist are great ones to do to open, heal and balance this chakra


Daily affirmations can help to change and improve negative attitudes and self-talk to a positive attitude.

Here are a few examples of sacral healing and balancing affirmations to consider:

  • I am strong, capable, and powerful

  • I am authentic and confident

  • I have purpose

  • I am enough.

Use Essential oils and Crystals

Key crystals to help connect to your sense of purpose are citrine, yellow tourmaline, tiger’s eye, yellow jasper, and yellow quartz. These crystals can be in jewelry (pendants, earrings, rings) or placed in a pocket or put in a purse. Do not forget to cleanse any crystals that are used either by placing them on a windowsill in the sun or moonlight or rinsing them in water. Orange calcite should not be cleaned with or placed in water.

Essential oils like cedarwood, bergamot, rosemary, lemon grass, lavender and chamomile assist with opening and balancing the solar plexus. Here are a couple of diffusing blends that I use in my practice

Solar Plexus Confident Synergy

1 drop Lemongrass 3 drops Rosemary

3 drops Lemon 3 drops Cedarwood

2 drops Bergamot drop 2 drops Spearmint

1 drop Vetiver

1 drop Frankincense


Reiki helps to clear out heavy energy/emotions such as grief, sadness, and anger allowing healing energy to flow freely throughout the body. Through the release and clearing of these energies, chakras align, balance and open.

In my practice, I use a combination of essential oils, crystals, and Reiki. The crystals and essential oils used are intuitively selected and vary depending on the client. Each of my clients sets an intention for the sessions, e.g., to balance the heart chakra and during the session, this area may receive more attention than other areas of the body. I intuitively listen to the areas the body tells me to focus on during the session keeping in mind the overall intention of balancing the heart chakra.

If you would like more information or have questions on essential oils or Reiki, send me a message or book an appointment. I would love to connect with you.

With Gratitude and Reiki Blessings,
