Leading on from previous blogs on “The Role of Emotion in Health and Wellbeing”. Lets look at the third chakra more closely:
The Third Chakra also called the Solar Plexus chakra is located in the centre of the body above the navel. This chakra puts order in our lives. It gives a sense of control over our own lives, whilst also being the seat for decision-making and intuition. It is the energy centre associated with self esteem and self worth. The identity of the ego. Do we feel empowered in our jobs and home life? The third chakra is yellow and it is here that we feel intimidation and fear. Hence the saying “Yellow Belly”. When criticized it is usually in the “gut” that we feel discomfort, “knotting” and in extreme cases, even pain.
