In this post, you’ll learn all about the heart chakra and solar plexus chakra, including the oils and crystals that promote healing and balance to these energy centers. Be sure to check out the root and sacral chakras too.
When our energy centers are balanced, we can function at a higher level and can lead a more fulfilling and joyful life.
In addition to learning all about the solar plexus chakra and the heart chakra today, we will also learn chakra healing strategies. Be sure to listen to the meditation at the end of the video to learn these techniques.
All About the Solar Plexus Chakra
The solar plexus chakra is two inches above the naval. The color is yellow, and the element is fire. This is the chakra of personality, self-esteem, and sense of self-worth.
You may get the image of a healthy fire – this is a healthy sense of self!
Out of Balance Solar Plexus Chakra
Often times our solar plexus chakra can be out of balance. This can result in an underactive or overactive energy center.
- Need to dominate and control
- Need to prove your worth
- Feelings of inadequacy
- Giving power away
- Poor sense of self
In Balance Solar Plexus Chakra
When your solar plexus is balanced (not underactive and not overactive), you may feel the following ways:
- Access our personal power in healthy ways
- Balanced between spiritual & material worlds
- Tolerance & acceptance
- Inner peace & calm
The chakras can teach us so many lessons. The solar plexus chakra pushes us to:
- To experience the depth of who we are with self-empowerment & self-esteem (and not needing anyone to understand that)
- To live our soul purpose or life mission
Causes of Energy Blocks in the Solar Plexus Chakra
Energy can be cloudy or blocked in the solar plexus due to anger and control.
Body Parts Associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra
Adrenal fatigue is often related to the solar plexus. This can take its toll on the high-performing, type A personality, as they often feel the need to prove something. This is over-compensation for not having a strong sense of self.
Here are the body parts associated with the solar plexus:
- Upper intestines
- Middle spine
Crystals for the Solar Plexus Chakra
The healing properties of crystals are nothing short of incredible. Here are a few crystals that have beautiful healing properties for the solar plexus chakra.
- Tiger’s eye
- Yellow agate
Essential oils have powerful healing properties. In my previous work as a nutritionist, I was familiar with how essential oils could help with physical ailments. However, a whole new world opened for me when I saw essential oils as an emotional support strategy.
The following oils are wonderful emotional support for the solar plexus chakra:
- Roman chamomile
Affirmations for the solar plexus chakra are all about “I can…” If you are looking to balance your solar plexus chakra, try incorporating some of the following “I can…” affirmations into your practice.
- I can do it.
- I can be my authentic self.
- I can show up in the world and show my lightwork mission.
- I can powerfully connect with my own self.
- I can be a light in this world.
- I can shine my light safely and securely.
All About the Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is a fan favorite. The heart chakra is a powerful place of integration, showing how we connect the inner world with the outer world. This beautiful chakra interacts with our entire energetic field.
The color is green (although I sometimes see it as pink), and the element is air.
Out of Balance Heart Chakra
When our heart chakra is out of balance, we could feel any of the following things:
- Disconnected from self
- Difficulty loving self and having compassion for others
- Don’t feel deserving of love
- Out of touch with self
- Depression due to disconnection from self
In Balance Heart Chakra
With a balanced heart chakra, we lose separation and come back to unity. When our heart chakra is balanced, we feel:
- Fully connected to ourselves
- Easily experience joy
- Love & accept ourselves
- Give & receive love freely
- Ability of self-observation
This is a beautiful space when you can spend time in a well-balanced heart chakra.
The life mission of the heart chakra is a beautiful one: to experience compassion and connection with the self and others.
To know that things are not happening to you, but they are happening for you. You are not a victim of your life, but rather life is giving you experiences to expand your consciousness. You can find purpose behind the difficulties.
Causes of Energy Blocks in the Heart Chakra
The main causes of energy blocks in the heart chakra are heartache and grief.
Body Parts Associated with the Heart Chakra
The following body parts are associated with the heart chakra:
- Circulatory system
Crystals for the Heart Chakra
The following crystals offer healing for the heart chakra:
- Rose quartz
- Green tourmaline
- Green calcite
The following oils provide the heart chakra with healing:
Of course, the heart chakra is all about the affirmations that start with “I love…”
- I love myself.
- I love and accept myself.
- I love my body, mind, spirit.
- I love humanity.
- I love my children, family, friends.
- I love interacting with people.
- I love sharing healing.
In the video (at the top of the article), I go into a powerful heart chakra and solar plexus chakra meditation. In this, I show how you can look for information and read your own chakra. Be sure to give it a listen!
Often, I do readings on clients with a powerful solar plexus and a big heart. This is a big sign that there is a life mission in healing work. If you resonate with this, you could be called to do lightwork.
