Energy Medicine for the 3rd Chakra
The 3rd (Solar Plexus) Chakra represents how we show up in the world. It is about our Personal Power and how we interact with others on all levels. This Power, coming from our sense of self-worth and identity, dictates this interaction so profoundly that it brings with it a greater feeling of authority and self-governance over one’s life. Do we care and love ourselves enough to feel confident and set our own paths? When we do, we allow the authority we have as humans to be in charge. Love, compassion, honesty & integrity – for ourselves, others, and all things living on Mother Earth – all stem from a highly balanced sense of self and healthy ego.
The 3rd Chakra plays a big role in our ability to create our own lives– this is what I know, personally. We manifest from a position of strength. When we associate with our ‘I’, we say I am, I need, I will. Actually knowing and liking who we are opens up new ways of communication and allows us to be clear about what we want. Our authority over our own life then becomes accepted and mindful.
