Solar Plexus (3rd  Chakra)

                   “I allow myself to be filled with passion and romance.”

Associated Color: Yellow

Location:  In the center of the stomach.

Description:  This is the seat of the will. The seat of personal power, which defines our empowerment, self-confidence and “self-esteem”. When balanced, it helps bring conscious awareness of understanding to his/her emotional life. The personality that develops during puberty is located within this chakra, known as the “EGO”. Anyone experiencing dysfunction of the third chakra may have a difficult time obtaining, or maintaining, his/her own “personal power”. This intuitive chakra is where we get our “gut instincts”, which  signal if we should, or should not, do something. Confidence is key to develop intuitive skills.
