Through the exploration of the Chakras you can gain a deeper understanding of:

All of these powerful benefits come from raising your awareness levels in the process of understanding your Chakras – your inner energetic system.
What is the Chakra System?
The Chakra System is one of the most ancient energy systems of the body that exist in the world.
The word “Chakra” means Wheel – a wheel of energy that is constantly flowing with energy from the base of your spine to the top of your head.
They are considered as the main centers of energy that are located inside the body and allow for various functions and abilities in the body.
The Chakra system represents the physical and energetic body.
Once one has gained mastery and cleared the blockages and imbalances of the Chakra System, their life force energy can finally flow freely through the body.
This allows for greater health, abundance and prosperity in all walks of life – through relationships, to work, to general health and communication – internally and externally.
There are 7 main chakras that are all interconnected in their energy and balancing levels.

Let us begin your date with the third Chakra – Your Solar Plexus Chakra
Meet The Solar Plexus Chakra. The Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) is located in the center of the body. If you place your hand on your belly, right below your chest, that’s where you’ll find it. It is associated with personal power, self-confidence, willpower, and the sense of self.
Color – yellow, Element – fire
The Solar Plexus Chakra is center of your Personal Power and strength in your body. It is “The Sun” of your body and soul. Through it you exert yourself into the world fully.
Think of it as a swirling ball of energy in that area. When this chakra is balanced, it helps you feel strong, confident, and in control of your life. It gives you the energy and motivation to take action and make things happen.
When the Solar Plexus chakra is unbalanced or blocked, you may feel insecurity, low self-esteem, or a lack of confidence. It can also affect your digestive system, causing issues like stomachaches or digestive problems.
You may have difficulty experiencing confidence and high self-esteem. You may also feel lack of motivation, lack of drive, and no passion for life.
If your chakra was a partner and she wasn’t feeling aligned, how would you help her? How would you help a partner that loves feeling confident, fiery, and driven?
As opposed to the Root Chakra that values security first or the Sacral Chakra – Think about your Solar Plexus Chakra as this driven, motivated, and ambitious partner that wants to feel confident, high self-esteem and powerful in the world.
Encourage taking up challenges, gaining personal power in your craft and self-discipline – it will promote healing and movement of the energies in this chakra.
What is the gift of the solar plexus chakra?
Your Personal Power Center
We all want to feel more personal power. As Nietzche said, we are all driven by “The Will to Power” which means we all do things that make as more powerful and have better control over our reality. Power in the right hands is a good thing. Conscious people who wish to see the evolution of the human species forward should strive for power and strength to allow the world to advance in that direction.
Self-Esteem and Self-Worth
The Solar Plexus Chakra is associated with your self-esteem and self worth in many ways. When your self-esteem is high and healthy, you can give more to others. You can share more of yourself with the world. Having high confidence is a blessing. When one is too shy or timid, he cannot affect the world around him as he is too afraid of presenting himself. When your self worth is high you know what you are worth to the world and others, and you present yourself in a higher light. This also allows others to improve themselves and shine their true light.
Motivation and drive
When the Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced and healthy, you are driven and motivated for life. You tackle any challenge with grace and you are appreciateive of the daily efforts you have to put in towards your goals. You are moving with agility and strength towards your mission and this propels you to higher levels of succes. As the center of your body increases in strength so does your overall drive and motivation.
Signs this Chakra is unbalanced
When this Chakra is blocked you feel as if your confidence drops, you find that taking action and moving fast becomes hard, and you are generally feeling powerless and fragile.
You may fear of your status, you may feel that you are not good enough to pursue what you want, and you may have difficulty pushing through challenges.
Some of the main symptoms can be:
- Lack of drive
- Low self-confidence
- Powerless behavior
- Decreased self-esteem
- Digestive issues
- Low motivation and ambition
- Emotional imbalance
My experience with the Solar Plexus Chakra
I perceive the Solar Plexus Chakra to be a foundational force in stability and forward momentum. I imagine it to be a place of deep grounding and clarity while it also serves to push me into new heights with agility and speed.
When the body and mind are acting from the source of power inside of it – you know you are operating from a strong connection to your Solar Plexus. Your words and energy carry a higher vibrational strength and they “Hit Harder”. This is the key with the Solar Plexus – it is a source of energy and power for DOING and IMPACT. It is more of an earthly, materialistic chakra rather than a spiritual or holistic one. When I am in the state of DOING and BUILDING this chakra has it’s time to shine.
Let’s dive into how you can start balancing this Chakra.
How to Balance the Solar Plexus Chakra?
To balance your Solar Plexus Chakra you need to reconnect with your active, driven, and confident side. This is the part of you that wishes to take serious action towards your goals and build the life you dream about.
This is the part of you that is driven, strong, and goes after what they want. If your higher Chakras are more about materializing from thin air – then this Chakra is more about getting what you want within all you’ve got. To do more, Be more, and Gain more personal power.
It is important to have a balance in this chakra between over-doing to over stagnation and relying on “magic tricks” – both will burn you out and leave you out of the game if pursued for too long.
Exercise to balance the Solar Plexus Chakra
One of the most powerful ways to balance the Solar Plexus Chakra is to reorganize your projects, todolists, and life in general.
When you are able to pinpoint where you are bleeding out important energy from the system you can begin to gather that energy back again.
Your solar plexus chakra will have more “punch” to it when it’s focus is single mindedly directed towards a strong pursuit of worthwhile goals you deem worthy. If your attention is scattered it will be hard to gain strong personal power in your domain and craft.
The Solar Plexus Chakra is like a strong crystal clear energy that is waiting to be channeled towards growth and action. When you have a clear mind that knows how to do quality deep work and focus, you’ll gain a lot of energy back into this Chakra Center and allow yourself to make big moves towards higher personal power.
When your Solar Plexus Chakra is open
- You are tapped into your personal power and motivation, allowing your energy and drive to flow effortlessly and joyfully in your life.
- Your self-confidence and self-esteem are fully balanced and healed, empowering you to embrace your inner strength and worth.
- You pursue relationships that support and uplift you, fostering a sense of empowerment and mutual growth.
- Your social connections are healthy and strong, providing you with a supportive network that energizes and motivates you.
- You have a deep trust in your inner self and your ability to create positive change in your reality.
- You are accepting of your innate personal power and channel it into meaningful projects and endeavors.
What happens when the solar plexus is blocked?
Overall when this chakra is balanced you experience more personal power, confidence, and drive – you go after what you want and you KNOW you can get it.
Affirmations to help your Solar Plexus Chakra stay balanced
Practicing affirmations can have a strong effect on your well being and reprogramming of your subconscious mind to dissolve your subconscious blockages as you heal your internal world, your belief system, and connect with your higher self.
Here are some affirmations and auto-suggestions that can help your Solar Plexus chakra stay balanced and clear:
- I am calm, confident, and powerful
- I am passionate about life, and my energy is growing stronger and stronger
- Every day in every way my energy is rising to new heights
- I am a powerful being capable of creating great change and growth in my reality
- My reality is in my hands. My work has great impact on the world

Experiment with what feels right for you and use the affirmations that resonate with you the most.
More Practices that can help you unblock the Solar Plexus Chakra
The best practices to unblock your Solar Plexus Chakra and the Chakra systems in general will always revolve around inner work. It is only through inner work that you begin to see that reality doesn’t happen OUT there. It happens IN there first and only then outside of you.
“Whatever happens within you – will eventually “
You are the cause and not the effect. It’s something that may be hard to grasp for those who have lived most of their life with the belief and perception that things happen to them – yet it is a fact that your life is first and foremost an inner experience.
Some of the practices I recommend you integrate in your life for overall well being and directly to unblock, heal, and balance your chakras:
- Meditation – Meditation is the common thread across all inner work. If you are a seasoned reader of my work you already know I treat meditation as a basic foundation for your living. Just like sleep, exercise, eating, and brushing your teeth – meditation is a basic activity that should be incorporated in your life consistently to get the best results and maximize your ability to enjoy and appreciate life. It is also the foundation for anyone wishing to develop a higher spiritual connection to the divine and experience deeper dimensions and understanding to life.
- Journaling – this is another foundational practice that will allow you to dive deeper into your internal world, thought processes, emotions, perceptions, beliefs, and habits. It will allow you to connect to your subconscious mind and bring to the surface subconscious blockages that are holding you back from the goals and success you wish to achieve. Journaling can also be used as a tool to deepen your connection with the Chakras and enhance your natural ability to sense blockages before they even come.
- Kundalini Meditation – Kundalini meditation is a type of meditation that is more focused on moving the natural energy of your body in alignment with your Chakra System and your energetic body. It helps move stagnated energy throughout your body and clear the blockages on a more Energetic level which is faster and more immediate. However it is a more advanced meditation technique and while it does help dissolve blockages faster, a blockage can only truly be dissolved once dealt with at the ROOT and not through quick fixes.
Other activities that may help you feel more grounded and connected to life are regular exercises, walks outside, time spent in nature, family and friends time, maintaining an healthy routine and eating a balanced diet.
The Matching Solfeggio Frequencies for the Solar Plexus
As you may know, the Solfeggio Frequencies are a set of powerful frequencies that interact with different energies and vibrations in your physical and energetic body.
There are 7 main solfeggio frequencies
The 7 Solfeggio frequencies and their effects are:
396 Hz: The frequency of Abundance, liberation and freeing oneself from
negative thoughts and emotions.
417 Hz: The frequency of change and undoing negative patterns or behaviors.
528 Hz: The frequency of transformation and DNA repair, as well as the
frequency of love and compassion.
639 Hz: The frequency of communication, harmonious relationships, and
741 Hz: The frequency of expression and self-expression, as well as the
frequency of finding solutions and solving problems.
852 Hz: The frequency of spiritual enlightenment and opening up to higher
963 Hz: The frequency of divine connection and channel of light.
I would say that the most fitting Solfeggio frequency to heal the Solar Plexus Chakra would be the 528 Hz that allows you to cultivate a stronger sense of self love, confidence, and personal growth. Use this frequency and experiment with others as well for a balancing effect on your mind and body.
Just by listening to the calming sounds you’ll already experience an elevated healing effect. Additionally they are great for deep focus and deep work as well.
Challenges in Unblocking the Chakras
At times there may be blockages that are harder and more challenging to unblock and release. These blockages may manifest as amplified symptoms of the fears and physical symptoms outlined above. In these times the best thing to do is to relax, let go, and accept they are part of your reality at the moment.
Resisting and battling a blockage will only serve to make it harder to unblock. Through time and perspective you will gain more insights into how and why the blockages have formed, and how you can begin to release them in the way that feels right for you.
In times of challenge it can also be a good decision to get advice from a mentor, a coach, a therapist, a holistic healer or a spiritual teacher you resonate with.
They will be able to guide you to your destination in the right pace and shine more light from a vantage point – to help you unclog the block in the easiest and most natural way for you. There is nothing to be ashamed of for asking for help or guidance, it is a natural part of life.
Throughout history we always relied on other people to help us and guide us with wisdom and advice. Whether it be parents, family members, community members, teachers or elders. The point of getting help is to learn how to deal with it alone – not to become dependent on the source of guidance.
If you resonate with my words and guidance, I invite you to explore the possibility of working together and see if we’re a good fit to collaborate on your personal journey here.
