The corresponding color for Solar Plexus Chakra is Yellow. Wearing yellow clothes, watching a yellow image (maybe a Sunflower image), will help your energetic blockages dissolve. You may also close your eyes & imagine a Yellow light charging the Solar Plexus Chakra. This practice can be productively associated with lighting on a yellow candle. When your blockages in this chakra start to dissolve, you will feel a warm glowing vibration. Eating yellow foods such as squash, bananas, grains (such as bread, pasta, rice, sunflower seeds). Cheese & yogurt are also proper in balancing this chakra. Spices like ginger, chamomile, turmeric, cumin & mint will also have an opening effect on this chakra.

Release Any Anger You Store Inside
Try releasing your anger in a healthy way such as through vigorous exercise, punching (try a pillow not people!), kickboxing, dancing, singing, writing, crying or expressing it through art. Anger is an emotion we all feel & to suppress it without releasing it in healthy ways only hurts us, in many ways. Join my facebook group for more ways to release anger & balance your chakras during this blog event!
Laugh! Laugh! & Laugh!
When we can laugh at ourselves & find humor in life, we have power! Even the darkest periods of life can be infused with humor. Humor is a great source of strength & reminds us that life is always in a state of transition, nothing is permanent, energy is constantly moving. Nothing ever truly remains the same! When we find humor, we find freedom. The more serious you are, the more disconnected you are from your source of power!
When this chakra is in balance, you feel worthy & loved, you are confident in your abilities & are capable of expressing yourself in a powerful but respectful way, you have no problem just being yourself!
