This can be seen widely in the world, in our own personal relationships as well as with our political and social leaders. When we ourselves are not strong and balanced, we will mistakenly follow this false power.
This leads to a number of core emotional and health issues:
When you have been raised with appropriate validation, given appropriate boundaries to test out your world, and given an appropriate amount of freedom with which to run, create and act, the solar plexus chakra is balanced and the result is the creation of great leadership, with great vision.
In a balanced state, this chakra will manifest as follows:
There are many detailed yoga sets and meditations that we could discuss when looking at balancing each of the 7 chakras.
Because of the need for proper and supervised instruction, I go into great detail on healing and balancing the chakras in my Chakra Kundalini Yoga Retreat Program. I also discuss more about the solar plexus chakra in my effective leadership training courses.
