Willpower. Shaping of being—power. Transforming, shaping, purifying. Conquer sorrow and suffering. Healing power. Positive use of personal power. “I am the source of my abundance.”
There is a main chakra with several secondary chakras. This is a complex chakra with many levels, positions and aspects. However, all relate to personal power. This is our power center – it absorbs solar energy which nurtures the ethereal body, thereby vitalizing and maintaining the physical body. The solar plexus chakra governs how we enter into active contact with people and the material world. Lower aspects: this area is the foundation of the personality and tends people to a social identity which seeks to conform. Higher aspects: It purifies the desires and wishes of the lower chakras. It consciously controls and uses creative energy. It allows the spiritual richness of the higher chakras to manifest in material world. It has a direct connection with the astral body (center of our wishes, desires, center of emotions).
The solar plexus chakra governs the unfolding of personality, working on feelings and experience, shaping one’s being, influence and power, strength and plenty, and wisdom that grows out of experience. If the inner eye and the crown are also open: it enables us to recognize that all visible matter consists of varying light vibrations; our wishes are fulfilled spontaneously as this open chakra is so closely connected to the energy of light in all things that attracts everything in search of light.

Need to feel important and achieve outside material identification in world. Control others through anger. Walk with proud air, drunk with vanity. Concentrate on being fashionable. Maintains control of others through anger. Can create suffering for others.
Body Issues: Insufficient Functioning We directly perceive vibrations of other people and act accordingly through 3rd. If confronted with negative vibration, sudden contraction of 3rd chakra warns us; temporary protective measure, becomes superfluous when own inner light is strong enough to envelop body like protective sheath. Insufficient: makes feel dejected, discouraged; sees obstacles everywhere; free unfolding of personality strongly curtailed as child. As afraid, lose approval of authority, hold back expression of emotions, and smothering solar plexus.
Body Issues: disharmonious functioning When blocked, feel gloomy, unbalanced; project same sensations into world around so life either bright or dark. One-sided or malfunctioning: want to manipulate everything in accordance with own wishes, want to control your inner and outer worlds, to conquer and exercise power. Driven by inner restlessness and discontent. Probable experience of late acceptance during childhood, so unable to develop genuine sense of own worth, seek rewards can’t find in self or material world. Enormous urge to be active to cover up.
