Why this chakra is so important:
For many women, we often feel unworthy or fraudulent because we are not secure in our beings. This is a tragedy. By connecting with the Solar Plexus we are able to connect with who we really are. The gift of this chakra is personal power, being confident, responsible, and reliable. The solar plexus is the center of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, as well your personality. When it is out of balance, we experience stress and outbursts of ego running a muck! When we are in harmony with our selves we feel confident in ourselves and our abilities and we show up in the world powerfully and authentically. We can use our intuition to help guide us in our daily lives and then begin to feel worthy of the best God has to offer us. We can pray all day long but we have to feel self love in order to fully receive what God has in store for us.
Whenever I feel like I am not “worthy” or have self doubt I hang my hat on this:
Jeremiah 29:11:“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Below I have identified affirmations and essential oils to help you connect with one of the most powerful centers in a woman’s being.
To connect to your Solar Plexus:
Affirmations for the Solar Plexus:

I am proud of my achievements.

Other ways to connect are through wearing yellow and adding honey to your diet. Wearing yellow or even focusing on it can bring your Solar Plexus in to harmony. If you are feeling that you are not worthy, pessimistic, and doubtful, this could be a sign of a Solar Plexus imbalance.
