The solar plexus chakra (also called the naval, third, or Manipura chakra) stretches between the downward “V” of the breastbone and two inches below the naval. This is the center of one’s “gut feelings”, housing the physical body’s energy and the spirit’s inner strength. It is also located around the digestive organs, which connect with one’s ability to “digest” the world around them. Imbalances in this chakra typically manifest as exhaustion, overthinking, or nervousness. When this happens, stones with similar qualities to the solar plexus chakra can help.
Solar Plexus crystals tend to work towards increasing one’s confidence, settling their emotions, or aiding digestion. Different stones can provide unique benefits to different individuals, so it is best to use crystals that resonate well with you. See below for our recommendations for working with this chakra.
Citrine – Typically associated with abundance and good luck, citrine can also aid the solar plexus by lifting one’s spirits and instilling confidence.
Yellow Jasper – This type of jasper is soothing for the digestive system, which is directly connected to this chakra. It also grounds one’s confidence in the present, helping them manifest their goals.
Malachite – Using Malachite can help with physical and emotional balance by aiding the “digestion” of the events happening around its carrier. This is extremely helpful for an imbalanced third chakra.
Peridot – Peridot also assists with physical and emotional digestion; it has the ability to release anger and jealousy that may be stuck as “gut feelings” in the solar plexus.
Yellow Calcite – This type of calcite is a joyful stone, bringing happiness and light back into one’s life.
