Solar Plexus Chakra Tensions

The solar plexus chakra is associated with the parts of the person’s consciousness related to power, control, and freedom, as well as self-definition. Solar plexus chakra tensions that can be associated with symptoms include tensions about feeling controlled or not feeling free, holding one’s self back from doing what one wants, feeling powerless or having an inflated sense of power, sensitivity about how one appears to others, or a lack of “ease of being,” feeling that being one’s self carries with it an implied threat, not safe to be real and to live one’s real values. Symptoms can also be the result of unexpressed or habitual anger, or inner conflict about what one wants or feels, uncertainty about whether it is okay to want that, to feel that, etc. This chakra is also associated with the mental body, and tension here can be related to excessive mental activity, and control issues.
The Symptom : Sunburn
Sunburn, damage to the skin because of exposure to the sun, reflects sensitivity in the solar plexus chakra (plexus of the sun) in terms of sensitivity to anger or conflict, with the part of the body affected and the chakra associated with that part giving further indication of the inner cause. Thus, sunburned shoulders can reflect unexpressed anger, sunburned arms reflecting anger affecting one going for their goals, etc. Because the effect of the sunburn may also result in the person not wanting to be touched, that points to possible heart chakra tensions (the sense of touch is associated with the heart chakra) and crown chakra tensions (a sense of isolation or separation from someone close).

The Inner Cause – Martin Brofman
The Signs for the Summer:  Cancer and Lion
When working with the idea that everything begins in the consciousness, it is interesting to look at the sensitivity of the person who experiences a symptom.
Each astrological sign of the zodiac has a particular sensitivity. Was it touched?
Could this explain the type of tensions in the person’s consciousness, and help them understand themselves better for their healing.
Every month we propose to share with you what is the sensitivity of the sign of that month.

Cancer :

The sensitivity of people born under the sign of cancer is about having a safe space. If their home is not a place where they feel safe, secure, this is the worst thing that can happen to them.

In the course of their evolution, they learn to transport this safe space in them, with them, much like the hermit crab.

Lion :

The Lion is a free sign. It is not a good idea to put them in a cage, they do not react well. The lack of freedom affects them profoundly.

People born under the sign of Lion have two aspects, the inner lion, a kitten, capable of being quiet and invisible, and the outer lion who loves to be magnificent.

The sensitivity of people born under the sign of the Lion is about being good at what they do, when they are not, it is experienced as a disgrace.

The Lion does not need to rule but they do not want to be ruled.

The sun, our model
Whenever it rains, whenever it snows, whenever wind blows, the sun shines with the same intensity.

If there is only one person on the beach, the sun does not shine less, if there is 10 000 people, it does not shine more. If a person complains of its heat, they go in the shade. No one asks the sun to change.

No need to impose your values.
No need to adopt those of others if they do not suit you.
Be the sun in your universe and see who appreciates your way of being.

Solar Plexus Chakra and Eyesight

Eyesight is the sense related to the solar plexus chakra.
Clear vision exists in the present moment.
In the present moment the desire to be elsewhere, the desire to do something else, the desire to be someone else disappear.
Clear vision exists when I am where I dream to be, and that I do what I dream of doing, and when I'm myself and I love myself.
In the present moment, the road is neither long nor short, quick or slow. Every moment quietly leading to the next.

With love

The mind is your friend, not your enemy
The solar plexus chakra is the home of your mind. When you have a tool, you respect it, you take care of it. Your mind is your tool to help you, aligned with your Spirit, to manifest your desires. You need to master your mind, so that it does not jump in every direction like a crazy monkey. 

Meditate and observe the game of your mind, it is ready to help you if you discipline it. When you look at your mind, it's like the pendulum of a clock, if you give it energy by clinging to a thought, it gets going again. Continue to observe, let the thoughts pass and soon, you will notice that your mind calms down, fewer thoughts, you go deeper into your consciousness. You become familiar with the Alpha state- that state that allows you to tune the two hemispheres of the brain, a state in which the mind can create what it has imagined.

Dealing more consciously with anger
Since early childhood I have been confronted with the subject of anger and I had to deal with it. My father was easily very angry, and I reacted at the time, feeling hurt, small, misunderstood and unloved. I invented protective mechanisms, but it was taking a lot of energy, since time was needed to rebuild myself and some verbal injuries sat deep, so it took years to let go ... But who does not know that. On the other hand, everyone knows that we get angry on ourselves or on others. When I began to explore my consciousness with the BMS, I learned to deal with anger. I realized that I was the creator of my reality. If I decide to react with anger to a situation or a person, then that is my decision. When I see myself as a victim, I give the situation or person the power and decide to be manipulated. I realized that I decide to be angry or not, at the moment I remain creator, keep my freedom and can do something different. It became clear it´s always my choice.

If we see things like that, then we can transform everything and make a positive use of it. It depends on how far we get involved in the creative process.

Choosing your thoughts for your benefit
When talking about power, we talk about "I can". When someone does not own their power, then their thoughts are oriented toward "I can´t" and that person keeps themselves in a situation that does not work for them. The person needs to find another way to express themselves, other words that leave a door opened for a change.

For example, instead of saying "I cannot see clearly without glasses" , the person could say "I can see clearly a blurry picture" or "I have not yet succeeded in seeing clearly, but I know that my experiences lead me to clarity ".

So we recognize that we can see and we see how to bring this blurry picture to clarity.

Solar plexus
A woman diagnosed with two tumours in her liver came to a class for healing. When we talked about that a tumour can represent anger hold back and not expressed concerning her will or a man (the symptom was on her will side), she nodded. She told that her farther had died recently and that she found that her brother, whom she loved, behaved totally inappropriate and really unfair concerning finding a way to share the inheritance. She said, “I do love my brother and therefore I feel that I’m supposed not to be angry at him”.

It was a relief for her to realise that we can love somebody AND allow ourselves to have a different point of view than the other person and express that, or to express if we have not been happy with something that the other person has said or done.

A couple of months later she had a clear scan of her liver.

Wish you all a bright and sunny summer :)
