Here are my 6 Tips to Help Balance Your Solar Plexus Chakra.
No. 1 Get Outdoors
The solar plexus chakra is associated with the sun and fire, so getting yourself outside can help immensely. Going outside for walk, doing outdoor sports, outdoor yoga or even meditating outdoors on a sunny days will help you open your solar plexus chakra and make the most of your healing practice. If you need any excuse, doing a little sunbathing in the summer can also help. These activities also offer you grounding benefits, helping to support your root chakra too.
No. 2 Use Your Noggin’ Use that beautiful head of yours and take up a class or two, read informative books and try doing some mind puzzles.
No. 3 Colour Therapy
The Solar Plexus chakra’s colour is yellow, so think yellow food and drink, yellow clothing, yellow gemstones and oils, like lemon oil. The sunshine is also healing to the Solar Plexus so get outside and enjoy some rays.
Chow down on chakra healing yellow food, like bananas, lemons, yellow peppers, papayas, pineapple, corn and sunflower seeds, plus spices ginger,turmeric, chamomile, mint, and cumin.
No. 4 Meditation
Meditation can really help with opening your Solar Plexus chakra. A nice simple exercise to do is to simply envision the colour yellow. Maybe you want to think about something that is yellow, like a big yellow sunflower to help you focus, and then envision this over your solar plexus chakra.
Bringing a focus to this area and using the power of your breath and sending your intentions of healing to this spot can bring about the world of good.
No. 5 Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy can be a lovely and very helpful remedy for Solar Plexus chakra healing. Try using essential oils like Juniper, lavender, bergamot, rosemary, chamomile, mint, ginger and citrusy oils like orange and grapefruit They can be used while meditating, during yoga or diffused around the room. I like to add a drop of lavender to my pillow at night to help me sleep, and I use citrus, mint and rosemary interchangeable to wake me up in the morning, either splashing them in the shower or diffusing them around the room.
No. 6 Yoga
Regular yoga practice is ideal for chakra balancing. Postures that focus on core strength are perfect for Solar Plexus healing, so think plank, warrior 1,2 and 3, boat pose and strengthening sun salutations.
Challenging poses and pushing yourself that little bit further can also be really helpful in balancing your Solar Plexus, so next time you’re struggling in plank or wobbling on warrior 2, just keep going, breathe and challenge yourself! You’re doing yourself the world of good.
