Crystals and the Solar Plexus Chakra

Crystals and the Solar Plexus Chakra

This is the fourth instalment of our Journey through the Chakras mini-course. Today we are looking at Crystals and the Solar Plexus Chakra.

The Sanskrit name for the Solar Plexus Chakra is Manipura. The translation of this word is ‘Jewel City’. The Solar Plexus Chakra is our source of personal power, it controls our self-esteem and holds the key to transformation of our selves and our lives.


The Colour of the 3rd Dimension Solar Plexus Chakra

Later on in this course we will look at each of the 7 main chakras from a 4th & 5th dimension point of view. However, for the moment we are purely focusing upon the Solar Plexus Chakra as it spins in the 3rd Dimension.

The colour that we associate with this chakra at a 3rd Dimensional level is yellow. This gives you an indication of the colour of the crystals that we may be working with on this chakra.


What this Chakra is Associated with

The Solar Plexus Chakra has a direct connection to a number of different life aspects. In summary these are:

  • Fire
  • Personal power
  • Ambition
  • Intellectual activity
  • Anger
  • Joy
  • Laughter


If you look at the list above and recognise that you have issues, concerns or challenges in any of these areas, then working with your Solar Plexus Chakra is an excellent idea. Please note that you do not have to have issues with all of the above; even one aspect that causes you concern is indication that this chakra needs a little tender loving care.


Organ Association

Another crucial element when it comes to healing the Solar Plexus Chakra and therefore improving your health and wellbeing, is to know which organs of the body are related to this chakra.

In summary, the organs directly related are:

  • Pancreas
  • Digestive system
  • Liver
  • Spleen
  • Stomach
  • Small intestines


If you have disease related to or concerns with any of these organs then this is an indication that you should work with crystals on your Solar Plexus Chakra.

Crystals for the Solar Plexus Chakra

So now we know a lot more about the Solar Plexus Chakra and what ailments and symptoms it can treat, how do we know which crystals we should use?

There are a few ways we can work this out.

  1. Choose yellow crystal. Be guided by your intuition on the actual choice or do a little research with books or a trusted online source.
  2. Use your intuition to choose your crystals irrespective of the colour. Choose the one that feels right to you.
  3. Choose one of the coloured crystals in the list below as these are general crystals for working on the Solar Plexus Chakra.


As a general rule the following crystals can be used on the Solar Plexus Chakra:

  • Citrine
  • Herkimer Diamond
  • Yellow Sapphire
  • Amber
  • Yellow Jasper
  • Topaz
  • Sunstone
  • Rose Quartz
  • Malachite


Where to position your crystal in a self-healing treatment

Last week we learnt how to carry out a self-healing chakra treatment which we could do in the comfort of our own homes. In regard to where you would place your Solar Plexus Chakra crystals that would be directly on the solar plexus which is at the base of the sternum.


What I’d like you to do next

  1. Think about any issues or concerns that you may be experiencing. Do they relate to the Solar Plexus Chakra?
  2. If they do, I’d like you to choose a crystal to work with on your Solar Plexus Chakra as part of your weekly Self-Healing treatment.
  3. After using it as part of your weekly treatment, I’d like you to cleanse it and carry it around with you for the rest of the week / meditate with it until it is time for your next weekly treatment.
  4. Following your weekly treatment, you may (or may not) wish to choose a different Solar Plexus Chakra crystal for the week ahead. Choose and use one crystal per week i.e. give your chosen crystal a week to work its magic with you.


It’s worth noting that even if you do not have any specific issues relating to the Solar Plexus Chakra, you will benefit from choosing a Solar Plexus Chakra crystal so you can use it during the weekly Self-Healing treatment.

Please Remember:

Crystal healing is a complementary therapy and is not a substitute for appropriate medical care. Always seek medical advice when and where appropriate.
