The solar plexus chakra is the third chakra of the seven main energy centers in your body. It is located at the abdomen and impacts self-confidence, self-discipline and the ability to achieve goals. Therefore, a balanced and clear solar plexus chakra can increase the ability to achieve your financial goals.
Your body has over 70,000 chakras.
Chakra means “wheel” in Sanskrit. The chakras are energy centers that spin in a column from the crown of the head to the tailbone. Each time your meridians cross, that junction is called a chakra. The seven main chakras are energetic centers located at your endocrine glands.
When your chakras are balanced, energy is able to freely flow through you energetic system which leads to a greater sense of wellness. Having balanced chakras impacts your aura, your energetic field. A balanced and cleansed aura will allow you to attract positive results.
How does the solar plexus chakra impact money flow?
We all have different money goals and challenges. Even Warren Buffett has his own money goals and yes, challenges. Just a different kind than most people.
The solar plexus chakra supports your ability to handle financial goals and challenges with confidence and discipline. A blocked solar plexus chakra can negatively impact your ability to stay on track with your money goals.
In addition, it can hinder your ability to trust your gut when overcoming a financial challenge. As a result, you may also miss hidden opportunities to create wealth.
Is your solar plexus chakra blocked?
Are you an overspender? Feeling unworthy of a better career with a higher salary? Since the third chakra is associated with inner strength and willpower, it affects your ability to be in control of your finances.
When the solar plexus chakra is blocked, it can lead to feelings of unworthiness around money. In turn, it can lead to challenges such as overspending or difficulties in negotiating a higher salary at work.
Assess your money story to identify blocks.
Growing up, my parents fought about money all the time. We lived paycheck to paycheck...barely. Overtime, I saw money as a scarce resource. I also saw it as evil and a source of power to control relationships.
It took me a while to shift out of a scarcity into an abundance mindset. In fact, it’s still an ongoing practice to bust through limiting beliefs around money. Developing an abundance mindset can be a lifelong learning process even if it just takes a few steps.
Feelings of unworthiness lowers your vibrations.
According to the law of attraction, when you raise your vibrations, you are better able to attract positive outcomes. How so?
Money is energy. Energy flows where intention goes. Thus, when you raise your energetic vibrations, you are better able to attract what you need for your highest good.
Limiting beliefs around money, negative emotions, unhealthy foods, and lack of exercise can adversely impact the chakras. The long term effects could lead to mental, emotional, and physical imbalances or blocks in the chakras.

How often should you clear your chakras?
Just like maintaining a clean home and work environment, your chakras need to be maintained too! Not just your money chakra, but all your chakras. Another analogy would be like taking a shower or brushing your teeth. If you don’t do it consistently, the bad unwanted stuff builds up.
Feeling emotionally depleted but haven’t done much all day? Our physical bodies have a way of telling us when it’s time for some clearing. Whether it’s a cold or canker sore, it’s best to listen to our bodies and recognize it may be time to clear each of the chakras.
Feel it to heal it.
Many times we think we’ve already moved past a tough life experience. This could be through forgiveness, therapy, confronting the person, or all the above. But the thing is, our past is always going to be a part of us. It makes us the person we are today.
Every so often, especially during the full moon, certain negative feelings may surface when we come across a thought or anything that triggers our memory of a negative past experience. That’s perfectly normal!
The key is to not judge ourselves for getting emotional or upset. Allow the feelings to surface and release it in the healthiest way possible. There are three main ways our energetic bodies release emotions through our physical bodies. That is by crying it out, sweating it out, or writing it out. So the choice is yours!
When it comes to energy work, it’s like maintaining a clean home. You need to keep up with the housework, clean the kitchen, bathroom, attic and so forth. This way, you can have a more relaxing space to manifest and keep your vibrational frequency high.
Clear your money chakra!
Feeling stuck in your career? Got stubborn money blocks? Your money chakra, aka root chakra, may be unbalanced.
The key to clear blocks getting in your way of being in the energetic flow is to align yourself to vibrate at the frequency of where you want to be in life.
