What is the solar plexus chakra?

The Sanskrit word for the solar plexus chakra is Manipura and can be translated into “the city of jewels”. The color of the third chakra is yellow and the element associated with the solar plexus chakra is fire. The Manipura is located in the solar plexus area and is the energy center of self-esteem, assurance, confidence, warrior energy and willpower. This particular chakra is linked to how you feel about yourself and how you see yourself. It is our “personal power and authority” chakra, where our ability to take on responsibility is and live out a life with purpose. We can say it is the “headquarter” of our personality. The aspect of our complex being that helps us adapt into the norms of society through our personal strength, adaptability, intentions and willpower. Physically the Solar Plexus chakra is connected with the liver, pancreas, adrenals, and stomach.

The Manipura is represented by the sun and thought of as the center of a person’s strength and vitality. A balanced solar chakra allows you to have healthy boundaries and be at peace with yourself. Confidence and self-love is a key quality of a balanced solar plexus chakra. You are cheerful and optimistic. You have respect and compassion both for yourself and for others. You feel comfortable expressing your feelings with honesty. You trust yourself and have the courage to act if something needs to be improved in your life. You will feel confidence in yourself and that you got what it takes to master your life.

If there is a blockage around the solar plexus chakra, your conviction will be very unreliable. If there is only a little blockage, there may simply be insecurity in one specific area. A greater blockage will cause self-respect issues. You might be convinced that you are not good enough. You may also feel unfit to accept a supportive lesson from life’s difficulties.
Physical difficulties associated with a blocked solar plexus chakra may manifest as fatigue, overeating, weight gain, especially in the stomach area, low blood sugar and diabetes.

If you are experiencing an unbalanced Solar Plexus chakra, it may be due to events or circumstances that have caused you to feel like you are losing control over your life, who you are, your worth, and what your purpose for being alive is. Causes like stress, illness and conflicts may also tip your solar plexus off balance.

Symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra might be:

  • Fears of rejection
  • Low self-esteem
  • Distorted self-image
  • The need for approval from others
  • Shame of having your secrets discovered
  • Poor decision making
  • Hard time acting and getting things done
  • Fatigue or laziness
  • Physical symptoms
  • Illnesses related to the digestive system and diabetes
  • Eating disorders

Still unsure if your solar plexus chakra needs to be healed and balanced?

Ask yourself these following questions:

  • Do I feel that I am good enough for myself and the world around me?
  • Do I believe in myself and my unique contributions to the world?
  • Do I feel that I am accepted just the way I am, with all my flaws and skills?
  • Do I feel in control of my own life?
  • Am I following my dream and my passion?
  • Am I living the life that I want?

How can the solar plexus chakra be restored into balance through sound?

One effective way to restore balance to the solar plexus chakra is through sound healing. Read more about how sound healing works and why it works here. During a sound healing session you or the sound healer can use different sound vibrations from instruments, frequencies, vowels, mantras, and/or natural sounds such as crackling fire from a bonfire to restore balance to the solar plexus chakra. Let us have a look at each and one of them.

  • Key: E
  • Instruments: Organ, Harmonium, Pyrophone
  • Frequencies: Solfeggio frequency 528Hz.
  • Seed mantra: RAM
  • Vowel: OH

Healing the solar plexus chakra with instruments

The musical note or key that resonates with the solar plexus chakra is E.

This means that singing bowls, tuning forks, chakra drums, didgeridoo, gongs, or any other instruments tuned in the key of E will be in harmonic resonance with the solar plexus chakra and have the power to restore it back into balance and health.

The solar plexus chakra is especially affected by instruments such as organ, harmonium (hand organ) and pyrophone.

If you do not play these instruments yourself, or participate in sound healing therapy, find a song in your playlist that you like that has these instruments in them.

As you listen to music that these instruments are making, tune into your body, especially your stomach and solar plexus area. Feel how your body and emotions are responding to the music. Notice if there is any tightness or tension in your body and upper belly. Allow whatever feeling that comes up be witnessed. Feel into what is there without running away. Just hold yourself through whatever may arise to the surface. Allow yourself to cry, scream, laugh or sing if that is what you need.

After your emotions have been identified and felt, a good way to release and transform the energy further is through breath and movement. Maybe do a firebreath as you listen. Youtube has several videos that show how you may perform a fire breath exercise. You can also dance, shake and allow your body to move in a way that comes naturally as you listen to the sound of these instruments to help move the energy further.

Healing the solar plexus chakra with frequencies

In the universe there are two primary elements of vibration which are sound and color. Each chakra is associated with a unique combination of these two primary elements. The solar plexus chakra is associated with the color yellow, and the frequency 528 Hz.

When we use a 528 Hz to heal the solar plexus chakra, it is because this is the frequency that is in harmonic resonance with the subtle energy system of the solar plexus chakra. If there is an imbalance in the solar plexus chakra, 528 Hz will assist the solar plexus chakra in becoming balanced again. Read more about frequency healing here.

528 Hz (MI) – Transforming miracles (DNA Repair)

528 HZ, is related to the chakra of the solar plexus. It is also known as the miracle tone, and it is the frequency which is thought to help return human DNA to its original state, removing impurities. By repairing your DNA, you’re not only enhancing your life energy, but your mindset improves. You can expect to attain greater mental clarity, a heightened sense of awareness and deep inner peace.

In addition it will balance the solar plexus chakra and allow you to feel confident in yourself and be in control of your life.

Healing the solar plexus chakra with nature sounds

The element of the solar plexus is fire. It is through the solar plexus we store sun energy charged with life force. Go outside, and consciously bathe in the sunlight. Close your eyes and feel how the sun dissolves all tension in your body, and fills you up with life force energy.

Another way to use the element of fire to restore balance to this chakra is to light a fire. If you feel confident in lighting a fire outside you can go to your favorite nature spot and light a campfire(safely) there. Sit down with the fire and become aware of how you feel. If there is something in you that needs to be accepted, healed and released, do it in front of the fire. Look into the fire, listen to the sounds, and feel how all your emotions get transformed in the presence of the fire.

A candle or a fire in your indoor stove may also do the trick if you do not have the access or skill to light a fire outside in nature.

Healing the solar plexus chakra with seed mantra or vowel

There are also different vowels and seed mantras that you can listen to. You can also sing and chant with your own voice to balance the energy flow in your solar plexus chakra. The vibration of your own voice infused with intention is a very powerful sound healing tool.
In the easter part of the world the vibration of each chakras is associated with their Beeja or seed mantras. And in the west each chakra is associated with a vowel.
A seed mantra is a one-word mantra used to strengthen the energy system of the body. The seed syllable used for the sacral chakra is RAM (Pronounced as RAHM, or RUM). The sound and frequency of RAM will assist in strengthening the abdominal organs in your body.
The vowel associated with the solar plexus chakra is OH.
To experience an internal sound bath try to hold and extend the sound OH. Notice any internal sensations.

Conclusion

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.

Nicola Tesla

We now know that our chakra system is our body’s intelligence of processing energy, frequency and vibration. When we learn to master our chakra system, we are more attuned to understand the secrets of the universe.

There is a symbiotic relationship between light, color, frequency, sound and the chakras in our body and our consciousness.:

We are musical being, deeply woven into the symphony of life, and our body is the instrument we use to play along.The combined complexity of physical and energetic being is what makes up the instrument, our body. The purpose and challenge of our life is to master and finetune our personal instrument. When we have tuned our instrument to the harmonic resonance of life, life becomes the most beautiful song. And the more people that finetune their instrument, the sweeter the symphony of life become for everyone participating.
