SYMPTOMS

This chakra is linked to the muscles, to fatigue, stomach ulcers, allergies and diabetes.

If the solar Plexus chakra is blocked, then you likely feel easily depressed and rejected and possibly wanting to blame others for your insecurity feelings.

You are an emotional chameleon, always willing to change to suit the needs and wants of others to be more accepted as you need reassurance and to be in the good opinion of others. This only hurts you more as your own sense of self worth fails to manifest as a result.

CAUSES

Most of us are taught from early childhood to repress our emotions and feelings. The rules of society say that we must always be practical and wary. It cautions us against exploitation. We live in a restricted society where people will often take advantage of one another, so this problem is difficult to overcome.

By repressing the solar chakra, you place yourself on auto-pilot and this can cause severe emotional problems among others. Doubt and mistrust will eventually destroy your vitality if this continues. They must both be endured and finally overcome.
