Solar Plexus Chakra – our rights “to act”

solar plexus chakra symbol


The Solar Plexus chakra (Manipura) is located in the solar plexus, and is associated with personal power, will and self-esteem. Its element is fire. The colour representation is Yellow.

The Solar Plexus chakra control our wills, our energy level, our sense of self worth and power. We see purpose in our life. Past trauma due to authoritarian and dominate parents and/or mentors, feeling shamed and belittled have an effect on this chakra. These past experiences manifest today as low self esteem, weak will, easily dominated by others, being passive, unreliable, low energy or overly competitive and arrogant.

A healthy Solar Plexus chakra allow us to a sense of confidence, a sense of self worth and a sense of power and will to act on what we believe in. We have the confidences to meet challenges and believe that we have the strength to overcome them.

This Chakra governs the digestive system, liver and gall bladder. An unbalanced Solar Plexus chakra may give us digestive troubles, chronic fatigue or hypertension.

A number of Young Living essentials oils (YLEO) can be used to complement your attempt to bring the Solar Plexus chakra back into balance.
