Solar Plexus Blockage

Solar Plexus Chakra Bloackage

A blockage in the third chakra, also known as the solar plexus chakra or Manipura, can be especially serious because it is where our sense of self originates. Chakra imbalances are difficult to avoid. When you face a difficult or traumatic situation, the coping skills you develop to get through it may cause disruptions in your energy and prevent you from healing fully. Blocked chakras can cause mental, emotional and physical issues.

Symptoms of a Blocked Solar Plexus Chakra

A healthy solar plexus chakra allows you to know yourself and live with confidence and strength. Someone with a balanced solar plexus chakra will be able to set boundaries and be assertive without being aggressive. It allows you to know yourself, judging yourself and others fairly but not critically.



Since it plays such a fundamental role in self-confidence, an imbalance in the third chakra can cause many problems. Some common symptoms of a blockage include:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Inability to set or maintain boundaries
  • Codependency
  • Lack of self-control
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Addiction

The solar plexus chakra is also important for physical health. It is closely tied to digestive health, but a blockage can cause an issue with other systems as well. Common physical symptoms of a blocked third chakra include:

  • Ulcers
  • Poor digestion, gas, nausea
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma and other respiratory problems
  • Arthritis
  • Organ problems, especially in the liver and kidneys
  • Nerve pain and fibromyalgia
  • Difficulty gaining or losing weight

Solutions for a Blocked Solar Plexus Chakra

Clearing the blockage in your third chakra and allowing energy to flow freely through it will help return you to health. It is best to try to do daily healing work because falling back into old patterns can allow the blockage to form again.

Working with a Reiki practitioner or other energy healer can be a good way to start your healing journey. They will be able to help break up the blockage and can help locate other blockages or imbalances in your energy.

At home, meditation is the most effective way to break up a blockage. Everyone possesses healing energy, and you can harness it using visualization. The third chakra is associated with the color yellow and with fire, so imagine a golden healing flame just below your navel. As you breathe deeply, feel it dissolving any hurt or pain you are storing in your third chakra.

Surrounding yourself with things associated with Manipura will help as well. Wearing yellow, eating yellow foods, and wearing gold jewelry or gold and yellow gemstones can help open your third chakra. Spending time in the sun and doing yoga exercises that strengthen your core are also good for healing Manipura.

  • […] • When the Chakra is blocked we’re not genuine & we mistrust others. The enemy of this chakra is shame & overbearing authority figures.  It will quickly shut down when children grow up in an abusive, unsafe environment, with constant fear of punishment and age-INappropriate responsibilities. Children are stripped of their personal strength by a parent who is over-controlling, too fearful & full of shame. OR the chakra can be over-energized to the point of making a person too rigid, controlling and fearful. (Read more…..)  ALSO: “Symptoms & Solutions…” […]

    The third chakra is not “just below the navel” as this article stated at the time I read it. It’s above the navel.

    • Brenda

      I took it as to mean…the fire is just below the third chakra so it can heal it

  • Pernilla

    Thank you for this piece of information. It is true about me.  I have an under active solar plexus. And many of the symptoms.

    • brenda

      this is a very informative article but
      many times this is just a complemment yes this manipura ‘
      in my opinion does not solve the main problem and the main reason why a solar plexus has paralisis or blockage
      if anybody with solar plexus blockage hasnt already gone through this and would like something that really helps you ewliminate this blockage send me an email or call me on6641986384 i live in tj
      ythis medicine i am talking about is speciffically for this and recommended by drs for this thing in special or if you decide to not call me
      then my advice is for you to go see a psiquiatrist he might help you better before you start developing psiquiatric conditions while this is happening to you while youre blocked or afterwards.

        If you could spell correctly then I might take your words more seriously. I have a serious 3rd chakra blockage from being shamed in family and relationships. I can barely get moving to accomplish anything. A psychiatrist can not help at all.. I have tried several over the years.  Anti depressants do not make any difference.  Meditation is the only thing that has helped….meditation and working with my subconscious are getting out of it. This article is right on the button!  Heather

          Thank you so much I have the same problem in my life and my solar plexus area has been very sore and painful for over 2 months. It might feel better for a day but then it really hurts again. I will try meditation; I am really desperate.

        Finally someone acknowledging the right way to fix blocked chakras. Doing affirmations, wearing the right colors, healing etc only bandages the problem. It will keep coming back till you allow the block to surface. Chakras are like cogwheels in a clock. Once you embrace the dark side of the soul and allow this pain to rise you will never have to work on it again and the next block will open up. It’s a long process to healing all the karma we have from many lifetimes, but once you released and embraced these blocks your body will allow more light in.

        The universe is there to help as soon as you open up to the option. It will communicate with you on the most domestic level. Through reoccurring problems in your life – people, music numbers, dreams, animal and insect totems that keep appearing, illness etc. Most people miss the breadcrumbs but they are right in front of you if you choice to look. Remember you will always get what you need and not what you want.
