Fire, Ego identity, oriented to self-definition. Third Toe, Middle Finger
This Chakra is connected with the Pancreas and is associated with the colour yellow. It is located just below the rib cage. On a physical level it affects the stomach, liver, gall bladder and digestive system or disorders of the pancreas. The Solar Plexus Chakra is the emotion centre of the Chakra system, and so affects confidence and personal power. Fear and anger can also be stored here.
This is the power centre and focus of personal freedom or, conversely, feelings of guilt. Mental consequences of a blockage might be anxiety about how others perceive you, envy or selfish greed.
What risks can you take to strengthen your personal power base? Consider confronting your fears about a particular person. How could you equalize your relationship with him/her?
If you have acted subserviently of late, reconsider how you can prevent this happening again by visualizing a more empowering outcome.
Does anger control you or do you control it? Controlled anger can be a very healthy expression of personal power, it does not have to be built up and ignored, let it go by punching a pillow, exercise or house work.
