Nourish Your Solar Plexus Chakra

Yellow tomatoBlessings go out to the people affected by today’s earthquake in Napa… I hope they all recover and get their electricity back on as soon as possible. After  two weeks without electricity since Hurricane Isele hit our area of the Big Island of Hawaii and knocked many trees down on power lines, we’re still enjoying our solar oven, forgoing the oven and microwave for the power of the sun… I love sun-baked veggies and grains.

Nourishing the Solar Plexus Chakra is all about stoking your digestive fire with vital energy found in complex carbohydrates, especially those that vibrate with the color yellow.

Whole grains support the Solar Plexus Chakra with complex carbs – high energy food without the sugar rush/crash. Look for brown rice, steel cut oatmeal, millet, quinoa, amaranth, polenta and buckwheat. Make a whole pot of grain (these last 3 days in the fridge) and serve 1/2 cup per meal instead of eating simple carbs like flour products and sugary, processed foods.

The Solar Plexus is also nourished by yellow food, like tomatoes and squashes, and fruit that contain enzymes to make your digestion even more powerful… like pineapple and papayas, which contain bromelain and papain.

In addition to following THE CHAKRA ENERGY DIET, add these activities to your day to power up your self-confidence, your personal power, your get-up-and-go… all attributes of a balanced Solar Plexus Chakra:

First thing in the morning, practice “Saturation Praise,” telling yourself everything good about yourself and the day ahead of you.

Take a walk after meals to facilitate digestion and build up your bone and muscle strength. And, of course, do some spinal twists in your yoga routine.

Dynamind Healing for the Solar Plexus Chakra

Are you feeling strong, determined and decisive? Are you confident you will achieve your goals?

The balanced Solar Plexus Chakra will be your best friend in achieving success.

Located at the navel, the third chakra, the Solar Plexus Chakra, is the focal point of our identity, self-esteem and vitality. This chakra center governs how you assert your personal power, follow your gut instincts, take risks and make decisions. It vibrates with the energy of the color golden yellow.

Physical health issues commonly associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra include digestive problems including food allergies or leaky gut syndrome or candidiasis, low or high blood sugar, liver problems, gallstones and adrenal exhaustion.

Emotional or mental health issues include anger, poor self image, indecision, apathy, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and powerlessness.

When the Solar Plexus Chakra is balanced, you are confident, with a strong sense of purpose/mission in your life. You are self-directed, self-confident and self-empowered.


This unique mind-body tool is similar to the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), but I’ve found it to be much simpler to use, yet as effective. It was developed by Hawaiian healer Serge Kahili King, PhD, founder of Huna.org and Aloha International.

1) FOCUS – Hold your hands out in a loose prayer-like position.

2) DECLARE – Say aloud the condition you’re feeling that you would like to change, e.g.,

“I feel exhausted and I know that can change. I want that feeling to go away.”

“I have stomach cramps and I know that can change. I want that pain to go away.”

If you have no symptoms to release, you can use Dynamind to strengthen the Solar Plexus Chakra, with a declaration such as:

“I’m not as confident and energetic as I want to be. I want the fire in my belly to produce more power in my life.”

3) RELEASE – Tap 7 times on the center of your chest, then at the point between the thumb and forefinger of each hand, and on the top bone of your spine (the 7th cervical vertebra).

4) BREATHE – Direct your breath, inhaling with your attention on the crown of your head, exhaling with your attention below your feet.

Repeat until you feel the desired result.


As a preview to my upcoming book, Chakra Secrets, I’m offering complete instructions on using Dynamind as a tool for Chakra Healing.
