How to Unblock Solar Plexus Chakra for Yoga Witches
Here we flow! Today we are going to learn how to unblock with the solar plexus chakra. Good news (at least for me), it's the last chakra of the lower chakra system, the ones I seem to be especially struggling with. What does that actually mean? It's essentially our more grounded, earthly chakras. The lower chakras: the root chakra, sacral chakra, and the solar plexus chakra are somewhat considered "masculine chakras", interestingly enough. The heart, throat, and crown chakra are considered more feminine. All that means is that in the balance of polarity in Spiritual Yoga & Witchcraft, with anything in life, there is always an opposite force that balances the other out.
How do I know if my solar plexus is blocked?
If you struggle with confidence, personal power, being too introverted, and perhaps painfully humble (just to name a few things), you may be suffering with some blockages in the solar plexus chakra. If you are struggling with this, good news, you are not alone, and there are some tangible steps to move through these blockages.
Another way to energetically tell if you have a solar plexus blockage is through meditation: Close your eyes, and scan your body. Starting with the area just above the the top of your head, your crown chakra, feel the energy slowly going down your body, being aware if that energy is passing through your head, past your third eye chakra, past your heart, all the way down to the area below your ribcage, your solar plexus chakra. If you can't feel the energy move past this area, through your sacral chakra and root chakra, chances are you have a some sort of blockage with your solar plexus chakra.
PS-This just inspired me to do a full body scan meditation on my YouTube channel, thoughts? Let me know!
We already know this yoga witch loves her affirmations, but it's really time to direct some of that energy to you and beginning to hone in your personal power. We can't raise energy as witches and lead or partake in badass rituals and meditations if we don't learn how to define how truly awesome we are. Trust me, even though I'm literally creating a social media and YouTube platform, I still struggle to use my authentic voice on this channel for fear of what other people think. I promise you, it doesn't matter what others think, there will always be someone that doesn't like you within moments of meeting you, but there are even more people who love and adore you, but none of that matters if you can't see it for yourself.
We're going to have fun with this one. Just go-ahead and look in the mirror and start with smiling at yourself. When was the last time you looked at yourself? Now give yourself a smile, or stick out your tongue and be goofy about it! It might sound stupid, but breaking through that ego of looking dumb is essential to healing this chakra. End rant, onto the affirmation.
Now that we got the prep, the rest is actually quite easy. Look in the mirror and recite some of these affirmations, at least 3 times, for at least a week. It's simple but often the tangible steps are the ones that we ignore. Perhaps it's fear of success or a more positive outcome? Idk. You tell me.
--I'm a badass (bad bitch works too fam, don't you worry)
--I don't care what other people think of me
--I have so much to offer
--I know my name (think of it as in, I know who I am and what I'm about
--I am exuding with confidence
Final thought on Solar Plexus Chakra Affirmations:
Say it like you MEAN it. Another repeated action of this blog, but this is how these actionable, actual steps work. Connect with yourself as you look in the mirror, and recite those words. Yell them, find a little oomph as you say them out loud. This is where we create magick.
Connect with the Element of Fire
Fire is the element associated with the sacral chakra, so let's change things up with that creative flow of water in the 2nd chakra, the sacral chakra and spice things up a bit. Interestingly enough, as a Leo, I still struggle with this chakra as mentioned earlier.
What drives you? What attributes are you confident about?
What makes you so deliciously unique? It doesn't have to be big and sexy, although I'd say go for it, and if you can't think of anything you're passionate about, then it's time to get a hobby.

Shadow Work Journal Prompts:
--What is something I'm holding myself back from?
--What is a deep insecurity of mine? Is it because I'm afraid of success? How would my life change if I let go of this insecurity?
--What quality about myself do I struggle to accept? Why? Include both favorable and infavorable qualities (Sometimes we need to stand confident in areas we struggle in. It's okay to be imperfect!)

Summary: Understanding who you really are is to accept both the good and the bad traits about us, and embracing both! It's so easy for us to dismiss and put ourselves down yet somehow we choose to ignore our good qualities. Wholly embrace both! It allows you to embrace your authentic self. Sure, we should always strive to be better humans and work on our traits, but sometimes we just gotta laugh at ourselves and roll with it.
How do you feel most connected to your solar plexus chakra my dear yoga witches? I have really focused on the affirmation "Who cares what other people think?" and releasing the physical syptoms of fear that resides inside of me when I am afraid of being judged. It's working!
