According to the Hindu tradition and the doctrine of yoga, the solar plexus chakra, which is located along the spine at the same level as the stomach and the navel, is the energy center through which the universal vital energy (prana) accumulates to be redistributed throughout the body. The third chakra, also known as the navel chakra, is considered the origin of the 72000 nadis, the channels that convey and irrigate the subtle energy throughout the body.

How to harmonize and balance the solar plexus chakra?

Opening symptoms of the solar plexus chakra

When developed in a healthy way and well irrigated, the solar plexus chakra becomes the subtle energy center of a balanced self-awareness, which allows one to overcome all the obstacles that tend to discourage one and move away from one's goals. Our ego is then sufficiently developed to allow us to assert our personality and become aware of our abilities, while an inner flame animates as much our will to accomplish our life goals as to protect lovingly the people who matter to us.

A balanced solar plexus chakra is also essential for the digestion of food and the proper distribution of oxygen in the body.

Solar plexus chakra blocking symptoms - Is my solar plexus chakra closed or too open?

When the solar plexus chakra is blocked or closed, that is to say, it is inactive or not very developed, the symptoms are rather close to those associated with depression, such as these moments where one lets oneself be carried by life and only feel able to endure it, without having any keys that would allow one to control one's destiny again.

When the solar plexus chakra is too open, that is to say, it is too active or overdeveloped, the subtle energy in excess and poorly controlled causes potential megalomaniacal illusion, which can be manifested by symptoms such as jealousy, anger, envy or a thirst for power disproportionate and potentially destructive.

Solar plexus chakra test

Perform the free test of your solar plexus chakra to balance it if necessary, taking into account the blocking symptoms you have identified. Think of privileging the balancing of your chakras in a graduated way, starting with the first chakra (root) towards the seventh chakra (crown)
