In Hindu tradition, the seven chakras govern energy flow through the body. A blockage or an unbalanced chakra can cause both physical and mental symptoms, including chronic illness or psychological disturbances. The solar plexus chakra is one of the most commonly blocked chakras and can be the root of a number of common complaints.
Why Healing Solar Plexus Chakra Imbalances?
The solar plexus chakra, known in Sanskrit as Manipura, is the third chakra and is located in the area of the navel and solar plexus. It is the chakra primarily associated with self-esteem, confidence and willpower.
A balanced Manipura chakra allows you to have control over your thoughts and emotional responses, set healthy boundaries, and be at peace with yourself. Its physical association is with digestive function.
Symptoms of the Solar Plexus Imbalance
- Controlling, intolerant, or excessively competitive behavior
- Overeating and overindulgence
- Fatigue or excessive laziness
Symptoms of energy defiency include:
- Insecurity, anxiety and fear
- Low body weight and poor appetite
- Lack of confidence and poor self-image
- Inability to focus and lack of organization
Stomach ulcers, indigestion, diabetes, eating disorders and other illnesses tied to the digestive system can also be symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra.
