The Solar Plexus Chakra
Reconnect Magazine # 58
This is an article for RECONNECT MAGAZINE in December 2018.
What are Chakras?
THERE are seven primary chakras in the Human Energy Field. Starting with the Root Chakra in this series of articles.
We exchange energy with others and the world around us through our chakras. Each one feeds vitality into particular body parts and organs. Each chakra also holds different psychological themes.
For many different reasons, a chakra’s ability to function can become compromised. This can cause an imbalance in the energy field, which results in physical and psychological symptoms and disease.
The Solar Plexus Chakra
The Solar Plexus Chakra feeds energy to the organs of digestion;
- Gall Bladder
The ability to ‘digest’ our emotions, as well as our food, is part of this function. When we are able to digest our life experiences, then the energy becomes assimilated into our being and we grow. However if emotions are not processed, then it can result in deposits of emotional energy in the body and organs, which can then become stagnant and toxic.
In turn this lays the ground for all manner of digestive disorders such as;
- Nutritional deficiencies
- leaky gut and auto-immune disorders
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
NURTURING is a central theme of the Solar Plexus Chakra. While in the womb a baby is totally dependant on being nurtured through the umbilical cord. This dependancy is meant to gradually decrease as we grow up, until we are independent and able to look after ourselves as adults. This ability then further develops until we can hold the responsibility of caring for others, as well as our own children.
The way in which we were cared for as children also affects our feelings of self esteem and worthiness, and plays out into our adult relationships. Do you feel attracted to people who will take of you, or to those that you can take care of?
Ideally we are able to both give and receive care. However when we have experienced incomplete or inappropriate care, it is common to develop imbalances which interfere with the healthy flow of vital energy through the solar plexus chakra and energy field.
The Solar Plexus Chakra becomes under-active when we give our personal power away. This usually results from a history of being dominated as a child, and receiving approval for being passive and doing as we were told. We can then become needy, dependant, and want someone else to take responsibility for us.
On the other hand this chakra can be overactive when the unconscious strategy is to be ‘on top’ of the others. This leads to behaviour of being controlling, dominating, egotistical and critical. It becomes a ‘battle of wills’ to see who will win and be in control - and therefore feel safe from our wounds being exposed.
The spiritual lesson presented by this chakra is of being responsible for our own wellbeing, while at the same time being open and receptive to the care of others.
