Our Solar Plexus is the center of our personal power (our “will”)… our courage and our honor so we want to wear stones that will enhance these qualities. We also want to use crystals and stones to help us with our self-esteem, the energy governing manifestation, our creativity and the feeling of being centered.

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.
Find a comfortable position without laying down.
Once in that position, close your eyes and begin focusing on your breathing.
Slowly breath in… and notice the presence of your feet and Continue reading “Violet Flame-Chakra Meditation”
So I’m having a heck of a time clearing my mind enough to write about healing and balancing the Sacral Chakra. Hmmm… that must mean something. So I’ve decided to just start typing and see what we come up with. Here goes nothing… or everything!

As I sat and meditated, for the first time in two months, this morning I really felt the energy flow throughout my body. I focused on each chakra as Mother Earth’s energy and the Universal Life Force intertwined through me. The chakra that drew my attention the most was the Sacral so I decided to write about it today.

Root Chakra – Balancing & Healing
Researched & Written by Carol Gallegos (8.8.14)
First, let’s discuss what the root chakra is all about. The root chakra is the foundation of all the other chakras. All of the chakras are important but Continue reading “Root Chakra – Therapies & Meditations”
I feel the need to talk about Chakras. During this time of awakening, we are in need of healing our inner-selves. To do that, we need to know a bit about our Chakra system. The picture I’ve inserted is one you’ve probably seen before. It’s a great starting point. These 7 chakras are energy points within our bodies that allow for good energy flow. If any of these are blocked then we can experience illness. The 7 chakras (moving bottom to top) are as follows:
Root Chakra – Color is Red. Located at the base of the spine and is what makes us feel grounded, it’s about survival, and it relates us to the material and physical world. It also gives us the ability to stand up for one’s self if it is in a healthy state. It is our feeling of “the right to exist”.
Sacral Chakra – Color is Orange. Located in the lower abdomen about 2 inches below the naval. It’s connected to issues related to feelings, socializing, and intimacy. It is our feeling of “the right to feel”.
Solar Plexus Chakra – Color is Yellow. Located in the upper abdomen in the stomach area. This is our personal power – to feel confident and in control of our lives, to have self worth and self esteem. This also is the balance of intellect and ego power. It’s our feeling of “the right to be”.
Heart Chakra – Color is Green. Located in the center of the chest above the heart. Relationships – the right to love. Love, forgiveness, compassion, and the ability to accept self. It is our feeling of “the right to love”.
Throat Chakra – Color is Blue. Located in the throat. Communication – The right to speak. Express yourself, trust, loyalty, organization, and planning. It is our feeling of “the right to speak”.
Third Eye Chakra – Color is Indigo. Located between the eyes. Intuition – the right to see. Trusting in one’s intuition and insights. Developing one’s psychic abilities. Self-realization. It is our feeling of “the right to see”.
Crown Chakra – Color is Violet. Located at the top of your head. Knowingness – our ability to be fully connected spiritually. Inner and outer beauty, peace, and pure bliss. It is our feeling of “the right to know”
These are not the only Chakras we have in our systems but these are the largest and most common. In the next several posts I will go into more depth on each Chakra listing stones that are good to use with them, what part of the body each Chakra directly affects, and many other things that will help us through healing our inner-selves.
In my experience, carnelians have brought me a wonderful feeling of empowerment which has helped me get through some tough situations. This stone is known for its red-orange brilliance and its energy of leadership, courage, and motivation. They are also very good when you are in training to aid with focus and stability. It is definitely a POWER crystal.
This is one of my favorite stones. As a matter of fact I’m wearing one right now!
Moonstone allows us to soften our moods and brings us balance, love, passion, and healing. It also helps us to open up our intuition and connection to the Divine.
I’ve been posting a lot about balance, acceptance, and connection and this stone is something that can help with that. Wearing it as a pendant/amulet can help with healing Continue reading “Moonstone”
