“Amber…I just don’t know what to do. I feel like I have no direction…where do I start?”
I have been asked this question many times during my chakra balancing sessions. The feeling of being lost and even bored with life presents itself complications – but as an energy healer, I turn to the solar plexus chakra.
One of my favorite movies is Alice in Wonderland.
Alice asks the Cheshire Cat. “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to walk from here?”
The cat responds, “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
That’s the first step – figuring out where you want to go.
Your solar plexus is the third chakra from the bottom, in your upper abdomen area and governs:
- Will Power
It’s the chakra where you learn to relate to yourself because really, it’s all about you!
So where to begin?
How about starting off with a plan.
When we have direction, purpose, something we deeply want in our lives….it creates greater clarity to know what we are about and what we want to get out of this life. There’s a comfort within ourselves to who we are.
If you are experiencing an UNDER-active solar plexus chakra, it may feel like:
- No purpose
- Not sure which way to go
- Indecisive – anything sounds good
- Lack passion
- Worry what others may think of you
- Seek approval of others
If you are experiencing an OVER – active solar plexus chakra, it may feel like:
- Very critical of yourself and othesr
- May be a workaholic
So what does a balanced solar plexus chakra look like?
- Complete control over your thoughts, mind
- You have great acceptance of who you are and your position in the world
- Your ego doesn’t have control over your actions because you come from a place of love and peace
You can use the following suggested journaling exercise for any statuses of the solar plexus chakra. Just be aware of where you are. No judgements – this is free time to explore about you. Try not to think about your grammar or correcting any errors. Just move freely while you write.
You are a producer of your own movie. You can create anything you want without restrictions. Play out some scenes or even a whole movie of what you would like to be doing. Some questions you can ask yourself are:
- What are you doing?
- Who are you with? What kind of relationships do you hold?
- What is your family doing?
- How do you feel?
- Where are you?
- Is life the same for you from now to where you want to go?
You can’t think too big. Ever. Actually, I want you to dream as big as you want to go. Reach for the stars.
When you’re finished – look back at your dream and create steps that can be taken to reach it from one year from now….
How about six months from now…
What can you do to start living the life you truly desire today?
If this is overwhelming, pick one item and start with that. The point is to get you moving in the direction you want to go!
Explore your inner-self as it’s waiting to unfold before you.
