Solar Plexus Aromatherapy Recipe

The Chakras are an ideal roadmap for personal growth and development. In 2017 we are focusing on one Chakra a month. March brings us to the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of personal power, autonomy, and dynamic energy. This month, I ask you to focus on who or what you give your energy away to or who takes your energy away from you….

Brief Overview of Chakras: The Chakras are the main energy centers in our subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal Chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Each chakra has personal growth themes, functions, and purposes. The concept of the Chakras has been around for thousands of years.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is located in the center of your body, in the area of your diaphragm. It is the seat of Personal Power, Will, Determination, Motivation, Vital Energy, Self-Esteem/Image, Personality, Ego, Personal Transformation, and Achievement. It represents the element fire and is associated with the Sun and the planet Mars. The Solar Plexus is where our warrior energy is located; where we fight for what’s right, true, and just. The Solar Plexus is your own little personal sunshine. This is where you learn to create boundaries for yourself; physical, emotional, and energetic boundaries. You learn to say no, be assertive, and stand up for yourself. You learn where you end and where others begin. You learn not to take on other’s problems. This is where you learn to be an individual, to be free, and to self-regulate.

March 2017 Solar Plexus Forecast: Have you been more drained, depleted, tired, fatigued, stressed, and irritable than usual? Have you been experiencing more anxiety, headaches or stomachaches? All these can be symptoms of a malfunctioning Solar Plexus. And unfortunately, many times this can happen because we allow it to happen by having poor boundaries. The center of your personal power and autonomy can go haywire because other people’s energy may be invading your energy field or because you have given your energy away to others. We never want to give our energy away and we never want to take on others’ energy. Take a moment and close your eyes, tuning into the energy that runs through you and around you. Does it feel like someone else’s energy is there? Have you allowed another to take your energy from you? No one can take your energy from you unless you allow it. So contemplate, meditate, and focus on who or what you give your energy away to or who takes your energy away from you. Why do you allow this to happen? This month, the universe is encouraging you to take your power back.

Solar Plexus Chakra Energy Cleansing Blend:
~ 5 drops Sage essential oil
~ 5 drops Grapefruit essential oil
~ 5 drops Juniper essential oil
~ 5 drops Lemon essential oil
~ 1 tablespoon vodka or witch hazel
~ 2-ounce spray bottle
~ Distilled water

Directions: Place the vodka or witch hazel in the spray bottle (this acts as a dispersant since water and oils do not mix). Add the essential oils then the gently swirl to blend together. Add the distilled water. Shake well. Use the spray to cleanse your energy field, aura, and space. As you spray the blend, have the intent that you are cleansing away negative, dense, dark energy and redirecting the energies to the divine to be transformed into more useful energy. If you are an energy or Reiki practitioner, you can infuse the bottle with high vibrating energy before you use it.
