It took me some time to get this Chakra composed and out to you and for the life of me I couldn't figure out why. Every time I sat down to write I was frustrated, drew a blank, distracted. Well, when you make a commitment about something the Universe is going to hold you to it, in more ways than one. It would appear I had some boundaries to define and personal power to restore, because that's what this beautiful, brilliant yellow Chakra is all about. Boundaries, Personal Power and Action.

This Chakra shines like the sun, has the energy and power of the sun and takes no shit. From you or anyone else. The Solar Plexus Chakra is the seat of your personal power, your will, your self-esteem and your energy. It drives your ability to 'choose', to take action, to define where your boundaries are in all areas of your life and to defend them.
"I Do". That is the mantra of your Solar Plexus Chakra. "I Do". Deciding, moving forward, knowing who you are and trusting your innate wisdom. As it defines who you are, who you think you are and who you present to the world, it is the seat of all emotions and feelings. Guiding you with your own will. It is your power-house of energy and action.
You don't trust your own intuition? Your Solar Plexus needs some work. People walk all over you and you allow it? Your Solar Plexus needs some work. You feel like you're always the victim or nothing ever goes your way? Do you obsessively worry about what other people think of you? Well, there you go. You need some work baby.
How do you repair or power up this energy center? Connect with the Solar Plexus and radiate your light from that center. Breathe in the energy of the sun. Build up your core strength. Wear yellow. These are all simple ways of opening and recharging this power center of your being.
Repeat mantras that bring the feeling of being strong and in control of yourself.
I am not afraid
I am strong.
I don't give a rats ass what you think.
I am worthy.
See, there's something for everyone when you're restoring your power. TAKE IT BACK AND STOP GIVING IT AWAY FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
"I stand fully in my power and self-respect. I trust my own guidance and instinct. I am whole"
Now go kick some ass.
