Meaning and task
The solar plexus chakra is the seat of our self-image as a person, of our personal power and power.
This often has in spirituality the negative connotation of the “ego” – wrongly, because one can not transcend anything that has not been fully integrated before. Accordingly, developing a healthy, powerful personality is an important step in sustainable spiritual development. It is this personality that ultimately becomes the vessel for the soul through which it can express itself in the world.
In the solar plexus chakra is primarily connected with our digestive organs – a manifestation of its energetic function. Here, our experiences and more complex emotions are “digested” and brought into a mental structure. Here are the basics for thinking in mental terms, through which we process our experiences consciously and unconsciously. From this process arises a mental structure of thought-forms and beliefs that becomes our self-perception as a personality.
An identity as a person forms around our life experiences – in fact, it is more of a multi-layered collection of different identities. The solar plexus chakra is the access to our inner identities (eg inner child) in the form of stored experiences and fears, of deep-rooted, unconscious thought and behavioral patterns.
A major theme of the solar plexus chakra is power and strength – in the best case in the form of self-confidence, clarity, integrity and ability to act as a person. The element of the chakra is the fire and both in the Indian and in the German name are the lights, or the sun again. This is a powerful symbol of the quality of this chakra, through which the light of our soul radiates as a personality into the world. The solar plexus chakra has a strong influence on our basic household of energy.
Related to the theme of power and power are issues such as self-discipline, integrity and resilience, but also downsides such as anger – expressing a sense of powerlessness – manipulation and domination.
The solar plexus chakra also hides our need and our drive to bring our own ideas into the world and to realize them there, to master challenges, to test ourselves. In the solar plexus chakra lies the power for change, for discipline and self-transformation, but also the need for control.
The solar plexus chakra processes our subconscious mind and thus also our gut feeling and is therefore referred to by some as the ‘abdominal brain’. In extended spiritual terms, a fully opened solar plexus chakra allows access to the morphogenetic / morphological field.
The development of the solar plexus chakra is influenced in a special way by experiences in the early youth between the 5th and 12th year of life. Here, among other things, thinking and self-concept develop. During this time we should encounter tasks that challenge us, but not overwhelm us, to let us explore our own limits. Sincere praise and constructive criticism are nurturing at this time.
The purpose of the solar plexus chakra is to see – to look out into the world and to compare with the self-concept. This is also true in a much more energetic way: Through the solar plexus chakra we can perceive the surrounding emotional-mental field, intuitively we grasp the energy in our family, our circle of friends or the real feelings and thoughts of our interlocutor through this kind of spiritual vision.
