The energy of the solar plexus is associated with our ability to live out the fullness of our self-expression, connect with our inner fire and bring about our determination and confidence. Everyone is born with this phenomenal power and inner wisdom and overtime we are taught to look outside of ourselves for answers and affirmation. We are taught to mimic the collective and this conformity weakens our connection to our inner compass, creating blocks and chakra imbalances.
We are handed down a prescribed way of living and thinking until we begin to lose sight of who we really are and what we really want. Finding ways to step out of conformity, leave the collective and hold society up for examination by challenging that, which for so long, has been considered normal whether that’s a culture telling us what to wear, what to eat, what music to listen to, what kind of people to associate with etc is one way to begin to unpeel the layers of socialisation.
Take time out in meditation to consider if these things feel meaningful, joyful or life enhancing to you. If it doesn’t, then maybe you have identified an aspect of culture that has been internalised and does not serve your highest good.
This inner power contained within the solar plexus is available to us at any time to assist in this process. Working to activate and balance this chakra can generate the additional energy needed to help you push through and break free of the constraints of these societal beliefs, to realign and live-in accordance to your highest values.
