Feeling sluggish? Give yourself a much needed energy boost with this super speedy five minute Solar Plexus visualisation
Our Solar Plexus Chakra resides just above our naval and is our energetic seat of self-confidence, personal power and purposeful action.
The source of our inner sunshine, if you will, a nourishing solar powered wheel of light bathing our intentions, actions and sense of self in golden life-giving energy.
Signs of a Solar Plexus Chakra in tip top condition
When our Solar Plexus Chakra is nourished and healthy we feel able to buckle down and get things done, honing in our ideas and making headway when it comes to bringing things into being.
Confident in our plans with a willingness to take creative risks in order to grow and expand, we're able to stand firm in our convictions and share our light and medicine with the world.
We're able to establish and honour our boundaries while asserting our expectations and remaining flexible and centred in the midst of change.
Our sense of self feels strong, steady, rooted. Yes, my timeline is good enough. Yes, my choices carry meaning. Yes, I dare to create. Yes, I am worthy and whole as I am.
Signs of a Solar Plexus Chakra in need of a helping hand
When our Solar Plexus Chakra is in need of a little TLC we may find it harder to focus on whatever it is we're doing, flitting from one idea to another without really tackling anything in full.
Our energy levels may feel consistently low while a sense of uncertainty begins to cloud our decision making. Change feels threatening and destabilising rather than exciting or refreshing, and we may find it difficult to honour our boundaries or clearly assert our needs.
As such we may become distrusting of others, viewing our fellow soul seekers as competition or as insincere.
In truth, we are the ones struggling to align our actions with our heartfelt desires, and such a struggle can be a very uncomfortable sensation to sit with.
Such overarching uncertainty may prompt us to begin looking outside of ourselves for answers and direction, no longer recognising the infinite source of personal power residing within.
In doing so we become viewers rather than an active participators, and the urge to make ourselves invisible and 'small' may feel overwhelming.
While we might simply need a good nap when tired or run down, feeling energetically depleted is sometimes less a case of tiredness and more a need to clean out any stale, stagnant energy circulating within in order to make way for a stronger sense of flow and connection.
In doing so we begin replacing criticism and anxiety with compassion and kindness as well as a strengthened recognition of our personal power.

Super speedy Solar Plexus energy boost visualisation
Begin by closing your eyes.
Take a few deep breaths and place your hands upon your Solar Plexus Chakra, resting just above your belly button.
Check-in with yourself for a moment.
How are you feeling energy-wise?
Do you sense any anxiety, doubt, tenderness, an urge to retreat?
Do you feel capable, in control or is your self-confidence suffering something of a knock?
Are you able to anchor into the present moment or does the thought of creating and bringing tasks to completion feel like too big of an ask today?
Allow yourself to feel and experience the thoughts, feelings and sensations rising to the surface. You are so very safe in this moment and Archangel Raphael is stepping forwards to support you.
Imagine a spinning yellow wheel resting beneath your hands. This is your Solar Plexus Chakra, ready and willing to receive your love and attention.
Begin to notice any sluggish energy clouding the vibrancy of your Solar Plexus.
Looking closely, see such energy as taking the shape of slimy black slugs (don’t worry, they’re harmless! Just a little slow and sticky).
Calling on Archangel Raphael to help you as you go, begin lifting the slugs away from your Solar Plexus, each one dissolving into thin air as you remove it, transmuted now into neutral, pure energy.
When you’ve removed every slug (you'll intuitively sense when you've finished) and given your Solar Plexus a good polish in order to get rid of any lingering slime, visualise reaching for a beautiful sunflower ready to be planted within your newly refreshed Chakra.
Gently position your sunflower and water the soil at its roots, watching the petals bloom and radiate with vibrant, nourishing golden light.
Isn’t it beautiful?!
Visualise such sunshine expanding further and further beyond your Solar Plexus Chakra, golden light filling your body and circling around you.
Witness such light casting a glow reaching further and further afield.
Feel the warmth of the light bathing your skin, cocooning you in a knowingness that you are a powerful and radiant being.
You are the light, and the light is you.
You are perfect exactly as you are and your light shines brightly as you go about your day.
You are safe and firmly rooted in your personal power.
Refreshed, recharged, sturdy, strong you now stand, the beautiful sunflower within a symbol of your radiant self.
Your ideas supercharged, your energy magnificent, your confidence secure.
Thank Archangel Raphael for assisting you and know that he is always with you whenever you call.
Before opening your eyes, proclaim an encouraging affirmation aloud as a way of confirming the energy shift within:
“It feels wonderful to trust in my ideas and heartfelt desires and to approach my day with joyful enthusiasm.”
Eyes open, shoulders back, deep breaths and one foot in front of the other. There’s nothing you can’t handle, sweet friend!
With love, gratitude and so much joy,
