The solar plexus chakra is the third chakra, or energy center, of the body. It is symbolized by the color yellow and is often visualized as a golden light spinning in the center of your abdomen. Solar plexus chakra blockage can make you feel you have no direction in life or can lead you to try to control others.
To release positive energies and progress on your journey of personal empowerment try using a positive affirmation to unlock spiritual growth and promote a strong sense of freedom in yourself.
One of the twelve laws of the universe, the Law of Attraction, states that we attract what we focus on. The third chakra aligns with the First Law of Attraction, which is the Law of Manifestation. Whether positive or negative, the universe will provide what we are spending our energy thinking about. Our thoughts create our reality.
Changing negative thoughts when we’ve created a pattern that runs on autopilot can be a big challenge. You may find yourself frustrated when you become aware of yet another spiral of negativity in your thoughts and emotions.
Incorporating positive affirmations into your daily routine is a powerful tool for changing these negative habits and teaching your mind and body to focus on, and create, the positivity you desire in your life.

What is the Solar Plexus Chakra?
The solar plexus chakra is the third chakra and is located between your sternum and just above your belly button, over your diaphragm. In Sanskrit, it is called Manipura, which means “lustrous gem” or “city of gems”.
Considered the seat of personal power, the solar plexus chakra deals with personal power, ego, self-esteem, authenticity.
Emotionally, having your third chakra in balance can manifest in confidence (minus arrogance), authenticity, and responsibility. Having an imbalance in solar plexus chakra energy can show up as arrogance, low self-esteem, and lack of personal responsibility.
Physically, third chakra imbalances can manifest in digestive issues and blood sugar issues.
How to Tell If The Solar Plexus Chakra Is Blocked
We often hear references to chakras being “blocked”. A better way to think about this is to think of an imbalance rather than a blockage. Your chakras can be under-active or overactive, or they can be balanced.
Signs of an Under-active Third Chakra
- Low self-esteem.
- Victim mentality.
- Lack of will.
- A lack of self-trust.
- Avoiding personal responsibility.
Signs of an Overactive Third Chakra
- A need to control others.
- Inflated ego.
How Do I Cleanse My Solar Plexus Chakra With Affirmations?
Positive affirmations can help you to rewrite your negative thought patterns, replacing them with positive ones. Positive thought patterns change the way you feel and thus the way you act.
To cleanse your solar plexus chakra with affirmations simply choose a few affirmations that speak to you and say them to yourself. You can say them aloud, either in front of the mirror or as you go about your day. Or you can say them in your head, or write them down.
Or use a combination of all three. Whatever works for you and enables you to be consistent in repeating these affirmations often enough for them to be effective.
Using Positive Feeling To Manifest Change
Another important aspect of working with affirmations is your emotional state. Just repeating the words over and over will not create the energy that will bring about the change you desire. Emotions are powerful tools for manifestation. It is important to FEEL the truth of the words you are using.
Here’s an example. You chose to use the affirmation “I am able to achieve my dreams”. Perhaps the negative thought pattern you wish to change is something like “I never get what I hope for” or “I am not capable of reaching my goals”. Allow the negative thoughts for a moment and notice how it feels both in your body and your emotions.
Imagine what someone who achieves their dreams feels like. Confident? Happy? Whatever emotion you imagine hold onto and do your best to feel it.
If somewhere in your body felt uncomfortable in relation to the negative thoughts of “I never” or “I am not” place your hand there while holding the positive emotions you imagined and repeating “I am able to achieve my dreams” several times.
This can be quite difficult at first and it will take some patience and practice to make the feelings part of your habit of affirmation, but it is doable and you will find it is far more effective than words alone.
Bonus: Affirmation Cards
If you find an affirmation that speaks to you, save the image and use it as a background or, better yet, print it out and use it as part of a manifestation box. You might also wish to share the card with someone who might need to hear the message.
I’m a huge believer in the power of affirmations. Even taking a few minutes out of your day could empower you endlessly, however you wish to use them.
