Meditation is a powerful tool for unblocking and balancing your solar plexus chakra. The solar plexus chakra, located in the upper abdomen, is associated with your personal power, confidence, and self-esteem. When your Manipura becomes blocked or imbalanced, it can manifest as feelings of insecurity, low self-worth, lack of confidence, and difficulty making decisions.
Sanskrit Name: Manipura
Location: Upper abdomen
Mantra: I do
Crystals: Tiger’s Eye, Citrine, Pyrite (Fool’s Gold)
How Can Meditation Help Unblock Your Solar Plexus Chakra?
Meditation can help balance and unblock the solar plexus chakra in several ways.
Firstly, it promotes relaxation and reduces stress, which is crucial for releasing energy blockages. By quieting your mind and calming the nervous system, meditation allows your stagnant energy to flow more freely.
Additionally, meditation brings awareness and attention to your solar plexus area. Through focused intention and visualization (seeing your solar plexus chakra as a vibrant spinning wheel of yellow light for instance), you will be able to promote the flow of energy and restore balance. This visualization helps to activate and awaken the solar plexus chakra.
Furthermore, meditation cultivates self-awareness and introspection. It allows you to explore your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs, which may be contributing to the blockage in the solar plexus chakra. By observing these patterns and consciously working with them during meditation, you will be able to identify and release limiting beliefs or negative self-perceptions; helping to heal your solar plexus chakra.
Regular meditation practice boosts your self-confidence, self-empowerment, and assertiveness. It helps you tap into your inner strength and express yourself authentically. So, if you want to feel more confident and in control, give meditation a try. It’s a powerful tool for healing and balancing your solar plexus chakra, and ultimately, it’ll help you shine with your true personal power!
Below you will find some ideas how to meditate to balance and unblock your solar plexus chakra. Choose the one which resonates with you or create your own meditation and enjoy the practice :)!

Solar Plexus Chakra Meditation
Solar plexus chakra meditation using a candle.
The act of lighting a candle and setting an intention for your meditation creates a ritualistic element that enhances the overall experience. The ritual of lighting the candle becomes a symbolic gesture of igniting your inner power and inviting transformation in the solar plexus chakra. Plus Manipura’s element is fire so you can’t go wrong with a candle, right 🙂 ?
1. Set up your Meditation Space: Find a quiet and safe space where you can sit comfortably. Place a yellow candle in front of you, at eye level. You may also want to have other candles around the room to create a serene ambiance.
2. Relaxation and Breathing: Sit in a comfortable position and take a few deep breaths to relax your body and mind. Close your eyes and let go of any tension or stress you may be holding.
3. Light the Candle: Light the yellow candle in front of you. As you do this, visualize the flame as a representation of the solar plexus energy, radiating warmth and vitality.
4. Gaze at the Flame: Open your eyes and gently gaze at the flame. Focus your attention on the steady flickering of the flame, allowing your mind to quieten and become fully present in the moment.
5. Visualize the Solar Plexus Chakra: With your eyes open or closed, shift your awareness to your solar plexus area. Visualize a glowing ball of bright yellow light expanding and spinning at your solar plexus. Imagine this light becoming brighter and more vibrant with each breath.
6. Breath Awareness: Direct your breath towards your solar plexus. As you inhale, imagine drawing in revitalizing energy and light, allowing it to fill your solar plexus chakra. As you exhale, visualize any stagnant energy or blockages being released and dissipated into the surrounding space.
7. Affirmations: While gazing at the flame, silently repeat affirmations that resonate with the solar plexus chakra. For example, you can say, “I embrace my personal power,” “I am confident and strong,” or any other affirmations that align with your intentions.
8. Candle Meditation Focus: Use the flame as your focal point during the meditation. If your mind starts to wander, gently bring your attention back to the flame and the visualization of the solar plexus chakra.
9. Duration: Continue the meditation for as long as feels comfortable for you, ideally 10-15 minutes or longer if you prefer.
10. Closing the Meditation: When you are ready to conclude the meditation, take a few deep breaths, express gratitude for the experience, and gently blow out the candle, symbolizing the completion of the meditation.
