The Solar Plexus Chakra, also called the Manipura, is located in the lower abdomen and is key to your spiritual health. This is where your confidence and self-worth resides, and therefore remains key to your emotional well-being. The solar plexus Chakra will close during times of self-doubt and depression. It can also close when you feel as if you have lost control of your life.
In terms of healing, chamomile essential oils and citrine crystals can be a big help. These have calming effects that will counteract the chaotic feelings that caused the Chakra to close. Another healing method is to try to assert yourself in areas of your life where you previously felt out of control. This can mean communicating differently with your significant other, channeling energy into a positive project, or changing your work life to reflect your skills.
Every Chakra requires a degree of balance to remain open, so take charge of your life and let yourself feel the positive effects!
