Free Guided Meditation for the Solar Plexus Chakra

“I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.” 
~ William Ernest Henley, Invictus


The Solar Plexus Chakra holds a gorgeous energy for us to work with, especially when we are making decisions about our lives, our direction, and what is best for us.

The Solar Plexus is the place where our sense of self-identity resides. It is the seat of our personal power. It is where our personal power, integrity and self-esteem are anchored.

When our Solar Plexus is balanced we feel calm, energised, clear and certain about who we are and where we are going in life. It instills us with confidence, vitality and purpose. We have self-control and sovereignty in our lives.

When our Solar Plexus Chakra is unbalanced and low in energy we feel ‘less than’, our self-esteem and confidence drop, we feel flat and tired, and we may be lost and confused about what is best for us and which direction to take. We make poor choices and don’t seem to care or be able to stop ourselves even though we are aware of our patterns.

When the chakra is too energised we can become stubborn, intolerant, narrow-minded, bossy and overbearing. We become workaholics who are relentlessly driven and who take no joy from life.

I’ve recorded a short guided meditation for you to help balance and work with the energy of your Solar Plexus Chakra. All you need to do is sit or lie comfortably and follow along with the sound of my voice:

Other actions that support the Solar Plexus Chakra include dancing; journal writing, 🙂 exercises which stretch and move the hips and belly; the essential oils Rosemary, Bergamot and Lavender; and the crystals Citrine, Tiger Eye, Yellow Topaz and Amber.

Much love to you! ♥ Nicole xx

  1. Reblogged this on awritersfountain and commented:
    I came across this and have reblogged it with the soul (sole) intention of following the meditation guidance after work tomorrow. I came home this afternoon on such a creative high after the Radio 4 recording, I sat in the garden and then…. I had to complete work emails and I lost all those positive feelings for a while. So here for future happiness and for you all to enjoy…

  2. Oh, thank you so much Nicole, perfectly timed, as I really needed this! I’ve just got back from 2 months long service leave, travelling to different countries, absorbing all their fabulous history and cultures, and am now feeling a bit lost!!! I have to start back at work tomorrow, a place which isn’t good for my soul!!! I will be looking now for a job and maybe study that will benefit me as well as serving others!!! Cheers and best wishes!!!

  3. Once again thank you Nicole. This is spot on for me today and has made me realise that quietly meditating, visualising colour and the nourishment gained from both is very grounding. I too give thanks for the way you take care of us.

  4. Arrrrgh, finally faced this one. Yes, that was the reaction to this post. The butterflies were/are rife. Have done it and know it’s a case of rinse and repeat. More than once to push one of those pesky lives lessons through my being. Thank you so very much for this. Light and love xox

    • Have undertaken it again and for the first time (I think it was no. 4 or 5) I wasn’t filled with feelings of free-falling. Definitely one I need to do on a very regular basis.

  7. I agree with an earlier comment about you making a CD/mp3′s for chakra meditations! i am working on strengthening my solar plexus in terms of self love and empowerment and this is awesome:)
