Clearing the third chakra is generally more intense than any other chakra. When this chakra is stimulated and opens up, fears and strong emotions related to your personal power, sense of self and worth may be released in the form of body shakes, you may experience waves of nausea, abdominal discomfort or a loosening of the bowels. When anger is being released, you may cry or weep, shout or groan. You may feel like yelling and screaming, and begin to feel nauseous or throw up.
You may find your lower body begins shaking, jolt like you are experiencing a surge of electricity or feel an irresistible urge to shake your legs, hips or hands. You may find yourself moving your body into unusual positions and you will feel everything very deeply.
Once the energy has been cleared you may feel an expansion in the heart chakra and an immense sense of love, joy and peace will be experienced plus experience energy throughout your body. This is you true self beginning to emerge.
With a 3rd chakra awakening you will feel different within yourself and how you perceive the world. Your personal presence will be noticeably different. You will notice a sense of connection or oneness and your words will reflect a sense of power and authority. Through this awakening you will literally carry more spiritual light and shine.
The solar plexus chakra is located just below the diaphragm and it is connected to the respiratory system and diaphragm, the digestive system, stomach, liver, gallbladder, kidney, pancreas, adrenal glands, spleen, the small intestine, the lower back, and the sympathetic nervous system. This chakra relates to power, self-esteem, self-image, energy, will and responsibility, and is associated to our basic relationship with our inner self and self identification.
Pranayama: Breath of Fire is very useful to help dissolve blocks in the third chakra
Sit upright with your back straight in a chair or legs crossed on the floor.
Rest your hands in your lap.
Begin quick breathing in and out through your nose.
Place equal emphasis on the inhale and the exhale.
Relax the stomach muscles and let your breath naturally move your stomach in and out.
Start out with 60 seconds of breath of fire and increase the speed, force and duration of this exercise as you progress with the practice over time.
*Breath of Fire is felt in the abdomen not the lungs.
