Time to bring out your warrior for balancing your solar plexus chakra, the energy center that resides in your core. The solar plexus chakra is masculine and it’s characterized by the element of fire. If the archetype of the warrior doesn’t fire your imagination, the go-getter and the confident celebrity are good descriptors as well.
When in full force, third chakra energy aims at its target and hits the bulls-eye. It tends to be big, bold and loud. In other words, it comes on strong.
There are many F-Words related to third chakra, such as fire, focus, fierce, force and fame. But the one I think is the most representative and best for balancing this chakra is FEARLESSNESS.
Nothing lights up the solar plexus like facing your fears head on. Your core chakra is all about courage and stepping into action, especially when it scares the sh&% out of you!
I find that many people today – especially women — need a stronger third chakra. Ironically, we are considered the “me generation,” and our western culture is based on independence (both of which are third chakra qualities), and yet true courage and autonomy from the inside-out is a rare thing to see.
The reason that women so often need third chakra energy is because we have such a natural propensity to be in our heart chakra (a feminine energy center) and this makes us not want to step into our fire for fear of hurting others.
Additionally, we are typically socialized differently than boys. We’re told to be nice and not angry, while a little boy may be actually encouraged to go the other way (into the fire). Later in life, it means that men can have more of a challenge fully surrendering into their heart chakra. More on that in next week’s post…
In any case, the best way to fire up your fire chakra is to 1) Take Action and 2) Take Action especially when you’re afraid.
Here’s the vicious circle: if you have a weak third chakra, you have a tendency to not want to take action, especially when you’re feeling afraid or intimidated. Yet taking action is exactly how you build third chakra energy in your personal energy field!
It’s like that old adage, you need a resume to get a job, but you need a job to get a resume. What’s a person to do?
The good thing with third chakra energy is that there is no outside force or employer making the decision for you. With your core chakra, you are in total control. You just need to motivate yourself to take action — bold action — every day! And if you make it more important, then you WILL.
So make it important. Make it your habit to be fearless and you will grow your solar plexus power in an authentic, organic way. As you take action, your fears will fall away. You’ll feel bigger, bolder and more confident.
When I first thought of making my Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™, I was pretty scared of the size and scope of the idea. So, I created my Third Chakra Booster Tattoo first. I knew it would give me the courage, confidence and motivation to create the rest of the tattoos and to set up the entire business. And guess what… it worked. My Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos have now been worn in nearly 30 different countries of the world!!
Ask yourself: How can I practice being brave today?
