What To Do When Your Solar Plexus Chakra Is Blocked

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.

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

Make every cell in your body awaken and rejoice!

Most of us have energetic blocks and imbalances as well as energy-sabotaging habits that prevent us from accessing our full vitality, which leads us to feel exhausted, scattered, dull… even ill.

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.

    DAMN Julie.. very profound.. very much about taking responsibility and not handing it off to something or someone else.. love it

  • Jen

    You mean just above your navel, not below.

  • Lenore

    Norine…I lost my only sibling 33 years ago and I did the same thing. My parents were very toxic and after my brother died, I did not have the heart to leave them. I regret that. Because, they took his death hard, because of their issues, I didn’t have the heart to desert them because because because…..but it wasn’t my issue!
    Abundant blessings to you; TAKE CARE OF YOU!

  • Norine

    I I’m calling for your help from Hawaii. For a few weeks I have been experiencing digestive and bowel problems also diagnosed with having a bacterial infection in the gut. My naturopathic doctor said my 3rd chakra is not well. After the loss of my brother 3 1/2 years ago I have been trying to help both my parents physically and mentally for all this time. Till last week of feeling totally exhausted and not well in the gut. Please advise on how u can self relieve my chakras and get them to a healthier stage.

    • Sriyaa Srinivasan

      bruh go to an actual doctor please.

      Norine…I lost my only sibling 33 years ago and I did the same thing. My parents were very toxic and after my brother died, I did not have the heart to leave them. I regret that. Because, they took his death hard, because of their issues, I didn’t have the heart to desert them because because because…..but it wasn’t my issue! My continued relationship with them poisoned my children and my brothers kids too…finally I was ready to move on with my life and an “accident” happened 3 years ago and I have 3rd chakra issues too. I have a diaphragmatic spasm that hurts almost all the time. I have 4 herniated disks which supposedly is the result of the spasm…I have been treated by an orthopedist, osteopath, chiropractor, acupuncturist, had steroids and nothing has worked. I get a few hours relief if I am well rested but God help me if I pick up anything heavy, strain myself, do the laundry…my MD told me DO NOT USE YOUR ARMS…try that some time.

      Please focus 100% on yourself and your wellness. Learn to tell you parents, “I love you both, I wish I could help but I am not well myself…” and move YOUR life forward. Don’t be me…71 years old, broke, immobilized and in pain with deep scars created by others that have haunted me all my life and are robbing me of the rest of my life.

      Abundant blessings to you; TAKE CARE OF YOU!

    • Grace

      Hello Johanna,

      I m called Grace from a very far away place in a country called Botswana in Africa. From reading this article, i just feel i have a serious blockage of my Solar Plexus and am in need of serious help. have been out of employment for some time and recently opened my own massage business. I lack self esteem. I am a fighter in life but no matter how much i try to better my life, i feel like nothing is changing and i am so overwhelmed with a lot of self doubt. It always leaves me wondering if i was ever meant to be happy in life. The business has been operational for a year now. I do a lot of marketing but responses are not good. People who somehow come for my services always give positive feedback but just dont come back. After saying how amazing i am with what i do. Could there be any help for someone like me? Or i am beyond help?

        dear Grace, all my love
        Do meditatiomn , it will allow you to have the Radiant personality
        that attracts customers

        Meditate 5-10 mins each morning, and midday

        It heals SP too.
        You know when you got a strong sp, set borders easily, feel strong, very selfconfident, feel whole. Like nothing could hurt you. Feel able to do anything.

    • moustafa

      hi, can you give me your mail please, i wanna contact you quickley

  • SmhatU

    You people are wacked this is the craziest thing I have ever run into on the Internet

    • Anonymous

      Then you need to do some serious work on yourself.

      • Tabatha

        Then keep moving….

    • A

      you haven’t spent a lot of time on the internet i take it?

    • Sophia Catha

      To those who are ignorant n see life from a narrow lens, anything beyond their ken and field of awareness is “whacked”. The gift beings like you bring to the table for the others is a need to work on compassion.


  • Brenda

    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.

      • heather ellsworth

        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

        • april

          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.

      • Julie

        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.

        • Susan

          Julie, you are very insightful. I will take the plunge and listen. Just breathing deeply and allowing the healing color of yellow brought up deep seated feelings. This article and your response inspire me to continue to work.
