Power Energy

This is the third of my Blogs focusing on the holistic health view Chakras and this one is all about the 3rd Chakra – the solar plexus energy centre – which governs our overall sense of Power, Energy and Balance.???? If you would prefer to read the full piece instead of, or as well as, watching the video, it was published by Sivana East.

We have 7 main energy centres in the body.  These energy centres operate on all levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Different systems call the energy centres different names, but almost all traditional systems of medicine recognise these energy centres as well as other minor energy centres, and energy pathways. In my practice I refer to the energy centres as the Chakras – which comes from the Indian tradition.  Many energy healers work with the Chakras.

Chakras are areas where the body is very open to receiving energy, from all sources. When it becomes imbalanced the flow of energy into the chakra is depleted or even prevented.   Each chakra governs and works with specific areas of physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.  To get your FREE copy of my Chakra Balancing Ebook click here.

Balance in any of the Chakras works on a spectrum, so if you can relate to extremes in any of these areas you may have an imbalanced 3rd Chakra:

  • how energetic you feel in general
  • being energised or depleted by people, foods, life events
  • being constantly busy or constantly unmotivated
  • self-esteem and confidence
  • determination, goal focus and achievement
  • overall balance eg. work-life balance
  • attitude towards work
  • planning
  • saying ‘no’
  • digestive complaints, especially reflux, gas or bloating
  • liver issues
  • blood sugar imbalance

I mention Crystals and Essential Oils as being great tools that you can use to help achieve balance in your 3rd Chakra.  These are the ones that I would recommend:


  • Amber – stress relief, vitality, rebalance, digestive system
  • Golden topaz – recharge, optimism, confidence, drive, pride, planning, liver, digestion
  • Citrine – regeneration, energising, balance, success, self-esteem, motivation, invigoration, digestion
