Solar Plexus Chakra: “Intellect, Ambition, Strength of Will, Personal Power, Individuality, Identity, Self-Worth, Freedom of Choice, Inner Child, The Ego, Personality.”

Chakra Symbol Interpretation: “From the belly of the sun, emblazoned in golden light, emerges Manipura, our Solar Plexus Chakra. Ten yellow lotus petals form a circle, within which an inverted triangle stands, representing fire – the power of our inner fire igniting within us courage, dynamism, willpower and drive. This chakra houses the flames of our digestive fire – burning away like a furnace as it converts our food and the sunshine into life-force energy for the body. This chakra is a vortex of personal transformation. Awakening this internal fire, we rekindle our connection with the deep spark of light within… Our fundamental sense of self.”

Card Message: “Located between our navel and  sternum, our Solar Plexus is truly the ‘sun center’ of our being. It is the energetic home base of our self-esteem, will power and individuality. When we speak about standing in our power, we speak of feeling centered, strong and resilient within the core of our Solar Plexus.

This card is a call to ignite your inner fire, to breathe into the depths of your belly and to move with more strength, courage and confidence in the direction of your goals. Use your intellect an gut instincts to plan a path to achieve all that you desire. Harvest the power of your will to fuel your ambition until you reach fulfillment of your goals. Become aware of your personal power and your ability to choose the direction of your life

Imagine the light of the sun shining its energy through your individual movements in the world. There is no need to be boisterous, but equally now is not the time to hold yourself back. Shrinking your individuality in full form. It is time now to allow the expansion and expression of your true self. Shining self-esteem will empower others to ignite their flame also!

Now is the time to move in the direction to be and achieve all that you can!”

Affirmations:

“I am strong standing in my personal power today.
I am worthy of being loved, respected and listened to.
I am proud, confident and happy with myself.
I deserve and accept the life I dream of.
I choose to move forward in life.”*

In the Northern Hemisphere it is mid summer and the Sun is high in the sky. The days are long and warm and the heat has an effect on all of us. Our own ‘sun center,’ the Manipura or Solar Plexus, is where our power lies. Located right at the base of the diaphragm, it is where our will, confidence, responsibility, personal identity and sense of self lies. The Solar Plexus is also part of our complex “GPS” system, our intuition. It will expand and contract to let us know if we are in danger, if we are making the right decision, or if something isn’t quite as it seems.

We are being encouraged to work with this powerful and very important energy center in order to expand our sense of self-worth, self-acceptance, and self-expression. When we expand this chakra it becomes easier to trust ourselves as we stand in our power. We take full responsibility for our lives, and accept that we are the creators we have been waiting for. When we focus on fully awakening this energy center, our powers of manifestation amplify exponentially. So it is very important that we are clear on what it is that we wish to create! Of course we don’t just focus on one chakra, but work to clear and align all of the chakras first, bringing them into balance. Once they are cleared, cleansed and aligned, we can work to expand those which we wish to work on additionally. For this time, we will focus on the Solar Plexus.

Use the image in the card to help you focus in on your own Solar Plexus. See it as a whirling, spinning wheel of bright golden yellow light. Clear any shadows or dark areas and imagine them filled with sunlight. As your Solar Plexus expands, set an intention for something that you would like to create. Focus on a thought form or perspective that you wish to incorporate about yourself and your abilities. Boil the thought down to one or two words and see yourself placing these powerful words into the spinning wheel of golden yellow light. See the word expand and encompass you in a bubble of light. Embrace the power of this word, the energy of it, and the way it bolsters your energy. Know that this will work with any word or couple of words you use to improve your life through your own beliefs and perspective.

Words to work with: Strength, Courage, Willpower, Perseverance, Self-Acceptance, Self-Belief, Self-Worth, Manifestation, Creativity, Discipline, Transformation, Empowerment, Self-Expression, Vitality, Prosperity, Abundance.

And any other positive and uplifting word that resonates with you.

Namaste

Daily Angel Oracle Card: Conditioning, from the Osho Zen Tarot, By Osho

“This card recalls an old Zen story, about a lion who was brought up by sheep and who thought he was a sheep until an old lion captured him and took him to a pond, where he showed him his own reflection. Many of us are like this lion – the image we have of ourselves comes not from our own direct experience but from the opinions of others. A “personality” imposed from the outside replaces the individuality that could have grown from within. We become just another sheep in the herd, unable to move freely and unconscious of our own true identity.

It is time to take a look at your own reflection in the pond, and make a move to break out of whatever you have been conditioned by others to believe about yourself. Dance, run, job, do gibberish – whatever is needed to wake up the sleeping lion within. Unless you drop your personality you will not be able to find your individuality. Individuality is given by existence; personality is imposed by the society. Personality is social convenience.

Society cannot tolerate individuality, because individuality will not follow like a sheep. Individuality has the quality of the lion; the lion moves alone. The sheep are always in the crowd, hoping that being in the crowd will feel cozy. Being in the crowd one feels more protected, secure. If somebody attacks, there is every possibility in a crowd to save yourself. But alone? only the loins move alone.

And every one of you is born a lion, but the society goes on conditioning you, programming your mind as a sheep. It gives you a personality, a cozy personality, nice, very convenient, very obedient. Society wants slaves, not people who are absolutely dedicated to freedom. Society wants slaves because all the vested interests want obedience.”*

– Osho

We compromise ourselves to help those around us feel safe. We are afraid to rock the boat, to cause discomfort, to make changes that would seem to only benefit ourselves. Yet often these compromises make us uncomfortable; they make us feel small, helpless and stifled. This can breed resentment and the negativity must find an outlet. Unfortunately, often this outlet is self destruction, trying to numb the pain of not living authentically, which can lead to illness. It’s time to break free of the constraints of others.

Do not fear your own power, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. No one can hold you back except you. If you are living your life by someone else’s rules, it’s time to reevaluate! What is important to you? If you are finding your powers of creative manifestation to be limited presently, it may be because they are blocked by the fact you are not being true to yourself. It is difficult to create when you are swimming upstream, full of angst and frustration. You must let it all go.

Surrender to the Divine plan. Rise above the drama of every day life and see your own true self… a beacon of love and light. See  yourself free from the restraints that you have allowed others to place on you. Break free from it all and fly.

You are a lion. Leave the sheep mentality behind.

Namaste
