Ways to open your Solar Plexus Chakra or Manipura

The solar plexus chakra is the third of the 7 main chakras . It is also known as manipura in Sanskrit.

It is represented by the color yellow , and is related to our joy of living , our confidence and self- esteem , and our will .

The solar plexus chakra is located under the chest, above the stomach. It turns clockwise. To visualize your 3rd chakra, you can visualize a yellow ball, between the stomach and the chest, turn clockwise, and two kinds of cones, one on the front (belly side – to receive energies), and one at the back (back side – where the energy comes out). 

The solar plexus chakra is related to assertiveness, our inner power , our will and our actions .

We will see below the different symptoms of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra, and tips to harmonize it.

Sacred frequencies are particular frequencies that influence our energy bodies. The sacred frequency 528 Hertz is the sacred frequency directly influencing the energy of our solar plexus chakra. All you need to do is start a recording of the frequency 528 Hertz, while you meditate, or just while you cook, play sports … It doesn’t matter! You will find various recordings of this frequency online.


In many cultures, it is said that plants have a soul… One thing is certain, the vibration of plants is a pure and very high vibration, so let’s not deprive ourselves of it! All you need to do is place a few drops of the essential oil on your two wrists, and rub them against each other for a few minutes. (be careful, never put pure essential oil directly on your skin, diluted first with vegetable oil). Because the skin on our wrists is very thin, the oil will be absorbed into your body more quickly. You can use chamomile essential oil, or find essential oil blends specific to the solar plexus chakra commercially.

  • Lemon,
  • ginger,
  • black pepper,
  • rosemary,
  • ylang ylang,
  • chamomile


As stated above, the color of the solar plexus chakra is yellow. So eat yellow foods! Each color has a vibration, so by eating yellow foods, you directly bring that vibration into your body, which will feed this energy into the solar plexus chakra.

The sound, or mantra “RAM” resonates with the solar plexus chakra. Always a story of vibrations, this sound emits vibrations in resonance with this chakra, and will therefore feed its energy. So sing, repeat the RAM sound, as much as possible! You will also find various recordings of this sound online, so don’t miss out!


We talked about the color vibes a bit above, so surround yourself with the color yellow as much as possible! Wear yellow, decorate your home with yellow … soak up the yellow vibe!


Mudras put your two hands in contact, with certain postures relating certain specific points of your fingers. Each finger has its function and its power within our body. When the fingers touch each other, the “nadis” (subtle energy channels) are connected and particular energetic vibrations are activated. Learn about the mudras corresponding to the solar plexus chakra, and use them during your meditation for example.

10. YOGA

Yoga is known to be a very good exercise for relaxation, but it is also a powerful practice to better circulate energy in our body, and therefore activate certain meridians and chakras whose energies were blocked. Learn about the yoga postures related to the solar plexus chakra, and take a few minutes a day to perform them.
