Start By Reminding Yourself What The Chakras Are, Specifically The Solar Plexus Chakra
You've probably heard of chakras before, even if you aren't clear on what they are. Based on the Sanskrit word for "wheels," the seven chakras are spinning energy centers found throughout the body. Each one is associated with a different color and effect on your body.
The third chakra, or solar plexus chakra, is located in the area right above your belly button. It is considered to be the center of the body, the place from which energy is generated. The third chakra is usually visualized as yellow in color. If it is out of balance, that can show up as a lack of energy flow. This chakra is associated with self-esteem and self-confidence.
