What is the Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra is the 3rd chakra in the 7 chakra system and is the highest frequency of the lower chakras. It is associated with the color yellow.

It is one where we begin to have freedom to live.

I associate it with freedom because you might have gone through it during your late teens through early twenties. This is when most freedom becomes available to your life. This chakra is when our identities are fully formed and you become ready for more.

The sacral chakra and root chakra have been known to you, and you may have mastered these earlier chakras. This is chakra gives you a way to reveal your true self.

This chakra is one that I close my eyes in meditation during this stage because you become unaware of what is next, or you might be someone who is needed and wanting more and awakens.

Mastering this chakra will give you confidence in your life and allow you to do more.

When Do You Use the Solar Plexus Chakra

You use the solar plexus chakra when you are at the peak of your growth, from late teens to early twenties. This is when you are beginning to have a identity that is all your own and is your own making.

You use the solar plexus chakra when you are needing confidence and are building your identity. It is often associated with confidence and development.

It is from here that you may be given access to your higher soul, if you are wanting more of yourself. You use this chakra to see what more there is to life. It will let you see that there is more to life, if you are ready.

It is used to be your freedom. Some people might not be ready to go on to a higher world (closer to enlightenment) and might stay at this frequency.

It depends on what you want from life. Everyone is different which is why I think it is important for you to measure where you are at in life and think about what it is you want to accomplish.

This chakra, when balanced, will give you the confidence you need to develop yourself further. If you are wanting more, you can go beyond the solar plexus chakra to the heart chakra towards a higher world or way of living that is closer to enlightenment.

This chakra is a place that people might get stuck at if they are not wanting more or appreciating their life.


What Is the Solar Plexus Chakra Associated With

The solar plexus chakra is associated with the color yellow or gold. I associate it with having freedom for your new self that has formed.

This is the chakra that accelerates your growth and gives you access to adulthood and gives you a choice on what you want to become. Freedom is what it is associated with and is its main nature, along with identity and access to more of your true self, or a way to make yourself better.

How to Balance the Solar Plexus Chakra

If you feel like your solar plexus chakra is unbalanced, be sure to check out the section on solar plexus chakra healing.

However, in my experiences, chakra is always balanced if you believe it to be so. Make sure to live your life in a normal, natural way and you will always find balance as that is the nature of life.

If balance is what you seek, balance is what you will get! You will get what you wanted! Make sure to think about what matters to you and make sure it is a good thing! What is right for me? Whatever works for you.

Signs That Your Solar Plexus Chakra Is Unbalanced

If you are lacking confidence, that is usually a big sign that your solar plexus chakra is unbalanced. This chakra when balanced will give you the power to develop yourself and strengthen your identity towards your true self.

If you are feeling fatigued, or lazy, this chakra might be unbalanced. When balanced, this chakra will give you energy, kind of like how the sun gives you energy.


How Long Does It Take to Develop the Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra takes the longest to develop as it is the third lowest frequency. Each chakra after the root chakra takes successively less time to develop as they are higher and higher frequencies, hence the color.

The solar plexus chakra is one that allows you as much time as you need to develop yourself before you go on to a higher chakra, but it can mostly be seen in late teens to early 20’s.

There is a half step to the next chakra; the heart chakra that can prevent you from progressing past this chakra if it is not balanced.
