Open Wide LOVE
Open up as quick as you do for anything you put your all into. Your Kids, your job, your family, that man.....OPEN UP because there is no greater LOVE than the love you have for yourself.
Solar Plexus is the love that is the center of strength and balance, both physically and emotionally. When this chakra is open and the energy flows unhindered, it is responsible for a balanced self-esteem, willpower, and a strong sense of self.
Let's repeat that........it is YOUR responsibility to balance that self-esteem, your willpower, and get a strong sense of SELF. This is important in many ways because when you are not balanced you will have an issue with self-esteem and self-image. A sign of a balanced chakra would be confidence and therefore assertiveness and drive.
An imbalanced chakra would manifest itself as a lack of motivation or direction.
Some other signs of imbalance include an excessive need for control or, alternatively, feeling helpless. Due to a lack of control over your life, you may experience an unhealthy obsession with details and therefore losing sight of the bigger picture. Frustrations caused by an imbalanced chakra could lead you to over-assert yourself in harmful and manipulative ways. This is undesirable for you and the people around you.
Finally, people with imbalanced Solar Plexus chakras tend to have no plan and therefore cannot follow through with their goals. Laziness, fatigue, and anxiety, are all common symptoms of an imbalanced chakra. This enhances the previously discussed negative effects even further, leading to a vicious cycle of feeling aimless and unfulfilled.
Opening the solar plexus chakra can take time and work, but there are some easy ways to get started and speed the process along. Here are a few steps from Teal Swan
