Solar Plexus – The Power of Being
The third Chakra is also called the Power-Chakra and its essential qualities are: will, decisiveness, autonomy, assertiveness, originality, joy and enthusiasm. It is related to the outward motion and power of the element fire.
It is located at the solar plexus area, and relates to the diaphragm, stomach, adrenals and liver.
In this Chakra we start the process of individuation, which gives us the possibility of experiencing our personal will and the drive to create the life we wish for.
This process involves overcoming unconscious habits which defines our personality and our self image. It develops through facing challenges, daring to be unique, expanding our own limits and risking disapproval for the integrity of our own truth.
In the Solar Plexus we also encounter a long history of misunderstandings and abuses, where the concept of power is mostly used in a world of competition, comparison and judgment.
We all carry those energies, consciously or unconsciously. We feel either powerful and in need to control everything around us, or powerless, weak and controlled.
One of the themes of thethird chakra is the dynamic of the Dominator and the Victim, which are both distortions of power that creates suffering and separation.
In our process of individuation Judgments and Projections play an important, and mostly unconscious role. By becoming clear of our Judgments of others we become aware of parts of ourselves, which we “disown” – our psychological Shadow – and project outside.
We spend a lot of energy creating strategies to hide our Shadows. As we learn to identify and to embrace them, we get back our integrity and reconnect with great sources of energy that can then become clarity and compassion.
The healing of the third chakra is about finding balance between in-breath and out-breath, action and relaxation.
In this module we will:
- Explore the joyous Energy of Power, Strength and Will in the Solar Plexus.
- Learn to identify the different Strategies we use as Defense Mechanisms in our lives. Our patterns of either dominating or being a victim.
- Understand the Phenomena of Projection and Judgments. How and when it happens and ways to bring the energy back to oneself.
- Uncover and expose our “shadow” as ways to bring more light into our mechanisms
- Learn to create a stronger and healthier sense of one’s individual being; learning to draw clearboundaries, saying Yes or No when appropriate.
- Experience how conscious power and strength can support the capacity to relax and love more
The third Chakra and its issues develop mostly around the ages of eighteen months to four years, when the child starts asserting itself as separate from the mother, and again becomes very active in teenage time.
When we awaken our Power Chakra we have a mature sense of self in which we connect our presence, dignity and strength; we experience the freedom and joy of knowing and expressing who we are without the need for outside validation.
