The solar plexus chakra is the third energy center of the chakra system. Its physical functions are related to digestion, the immune and nervous systems. Emotionally, the solar plexus chakra centers on a person’s authentic power. It is no wonder that when many people feel anxious or indecisive, they experience a stomachache or other gastrointestinal issues.
The strong emotion of fear resides within this chakra, although fear can affect any of the other chakras too. Fear is often based on feelings of doubt, not believing in one’s abilities to face a problem or situation. We may believe we have...
In the midst of the holiday season, focusing on the heart chakra can be beneficial. The heart chakra is the center of our circulation system. Our physical bodies live as long as the heart pumps life-sustaining blood throughout our entire system. Our hearts move constantly in a rhythmic, steady pattern.

These two images illustrate the extreme possibilities of the second chakra, the sacral chakra. In the first image, the life energy is vibrant, flowing and pleasurable. In the second one, the energy is blocked, without any life-giving force.
As this blog will be focusing on Reiki, the chakras, energy healing, and related topics, it seemed I should go back to the basics and write about the Chakra System. The first writings about chakras appear in the Vedas, the primary source of Hindu beliefs, codified around 3000 B.C.
