The Third Chakra - Claiming your Power and Confidence

Your third chakra (between the breast bone and navel) is your inner power and confidence area.  Everyone has insecurities so this area can fluctuate between feeling strong and weak depending on what's going on in your life.

Liver and gallbladder are near the the 3rd chakra which is about anger, frustration, and irritation typically about the past; stomach and spleen are near the 3rd chakra which is about worry and anxiety typically about the present and future.

  • Sometimes memories will show up in this area--past experiences that made you feel bad about yourself and/or made you feel inadequate.
  • Sometimes past life memories will show up in this area--situations and experiences that made you feel like you lost your power.
  • The liver and gallbladder are next to the 3rd chakra and many times anger at somebody who has hurt you or, even more likely, anger turned inward at yourself will be there causing depression.  These types of emotions can cause you to either misuse your power by wanting to seek revenge, hurt somebody or yield power over them (anger) or lose your power (depression) whereby you can't take action or speak up for yourself.
  • The stomach and spleen are next to the 3rd chakra and many times worries are held here about people you love, yourself, or future situations that are not even here yet.  A lack of trust in the Universe/your Spirit/God is present when you worry.  Its a common human emotion but, nonetheless, you don't want to stick with it.
Emotions, and how you feel about yourself, influences what you attract into your life and how you perceive what is happening in your life.

It is important to acknowledge the emotions, be with them without judging them or trying to fix them with the intention that you're releasing them from your body.  Look at the blog for the 1st and 2nd chakras for techniques on how to work with the body in letting go.

The most important thing to remember is that you're on a very brief trip right now as a visitor on planet earth.  You won't be here very long.  The role you're playing, as your human self, is a temporary costume you're wearing for a unique experience.

You are a Divine Being having a human experience for learning.  The more you realize that you are not any of these experiences and emotions--they are simply a part of the trip--the happier you will be.
