Effortless Strength: Your Solar Plexus Chakra
You're racing through your day to complete all the important tasks that you feel driven to complete now: finish this errand, drop off this child, call this person, make that appointment, complete this overdue work project. Your office desk is a mess, your home is a wreck and you throw together some leftovers two minutes before everyone shows up for dinner.
By the end of the day, you drop into your bed, so exhausted that you wonder how you're going to get up the next day to start the race all over again. As you fall into a restless sleep, you wonder if you're doing enough to succeed in your personal and professional life, or if other people are doing more and doing it differently and doing it better.
This exhaustion and worry is an indicator of a weak or blocked solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus chakra, colored yellow, is located in the upper part of the belly where the diaphragm rests. This chakra is the location of your inner power - your source for the momentum and organizational skills you need to accomplish your goals.
A balanced solar plexus chakra means that you'll have effortless energy and strength to plan and accomplish your tasks. You'll know what you want to do, how you want to do it and have the energy you need to complete the task.
With a balanced solar plexus, you won't feel the need to compare yourself to other people's accomplishments or feel 'less than' others. You will have the confidence to know that you can and will succeed at your goals, using your unique, effortless inner strength.
While a weak or blocked solar plexus chakra can lead to exhaustion and insecurity, an over-active or otherwise out of alignment solar plexus chakra can lead to delusional and grandiose thinking. A wonky solar plexus chakra can skew a person's self-image so much that the person actually expresses narcissistic tendencies, which can lead the person to attempt projects without a realistic plan or focus. These people 'leap before they look', and often think that they are the only 'experts' in a field - even if they are actually a complete novice!
As you can imagine, an overactive solar plexus chakra can create havoc for the person as well as all those around them. For example, a doctor with a grossly overactive solar plexus may provide treatment to a patient without the proper skills or knowledge needed - possibly resulting in a disastrous surgery outcome.
It takes hard work to succeed in your plans, but balancing the solar plexus chakra with Reiki can help you achieve your goals. Like a battery that never dies, a balanced solar plexus provides the effortless energy, momentum, planning skills and confidence you need to conceive, plan and complete realistic goals.
