Solar Plexus Chakra
Parts of the Body Governed / Symptoms of Healthy, Over Active and Closed Chakra
Today we are going to talk about what parts of our body are associated with the solar plexus chakra and what symptoms to look out for if it is out of balance or closed. When this chakra is off balance many things can surface as physical symptoms to certain parts of our body. Our solar plexus deals with the digestive system. The areas of the body that are influenced by the energy of the solar plexus are the abdominal organs such as the liver, gall bladder, spleen, stomach, and small intestine.
Keeping these things in mind, below are symptoms that can occur when this chakra is unbalanced as well as closed. I have also included many emotional and mental difficulties we can experience.
Let’s take a look at what a HEALTHY chakra looks like first.
The State of Mind of someone with a healthy open sacral chakra has good self-esteem, takes constructive criticism well, they are decisive, they accept themselves for who they are, they are strong and courageous, they stand up for themselves, and they feel loved and respected.
The Physical Health of someone with a healthy open sacral chakra has a healthy digestive system and usually have a good metabolism.
A lot of times, someone with a strong state of mind can overcome any obstacle with physical difficulties so your state of mind is key.
Now let’s move on to symptoms of an OVER-ACTIVE chakra.
The State of Mind of someone with an over-active solar plexus can be too judgmental of others, easily excited about projects but don’t see them through, stubborn, critical, and won’t listen to other’s advice. Some even believe they know what’s best to the point of bullying others to do what they say. They often have anger and control issues as well.
The Physical Health of someone with an over-active solar plexus can experience poor digestion, weight problems, ulcers, diabetes, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, arthritis, pancreas, liver or kidney problems, anorexia, bulimia, hepatitis, intestinal tumors and colon disease.
Last but not least symptoms of a CLOSED chakra.
The State of Mind of someone with a closed solar plexus allows life to pass by doing nothing about it. They sometimes do not take the initiative to make decisions to better their life. They tend to experience low self-esteem, the inability to set boundaries, co-dependency, the lack of self-control, depression or anxiety, and many experience some type of addiction.
The Physical Health of someone with a closed solar plexus can experience poor digestion, weight problems, ulcers, diabetes, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, arthritis, pancreas, liver or kidney problems, anorexia, bulimia, hepatitis, intestinal tumors and colon disease. (These symptoms are the same as having an overactive solar plexus).
Now I know that could be a lot of you… I’ve even got some of those symptoms but just because we are suffering from these types of ailments does not mean that getting your chakra aligned and balanced will cure everything. Your state of mind plays a big role in that as well.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms whether they are physical or mind related, PLEASE seek professional medical help as this information is not a diagnoses by any means. While working on balancing your chakras is important… so is letting your doctor know what problems you are facing.
If you are a Reiki Practitioner, knowing these things can help with which chakras to work with the most.
So tomorrow, we will take a look at what crystals and stones will aid in the balancing of this chakra. I’ve got some really good stone combinations to help with different aspects which I think you’ll find quite handy.
