The solar plexus chakra and the ego

If you lose the attachment to the judgment of the outside worldworld dares to let go, you can come into contact with a silent force within yourself that nourishes all your actions. – Klaas-jan van Velzen

The third energy center represents the self, willpower and ego.It reacts strongly to emotions. You could think of the solar plexus area as the switch between the higher and the lower self. Do you follow the divine will, or are you guided by the will of society and your ego? It is the choice to listen to the silent knowing within, or to want to bend things to your will.

The energies of the navel chakra are also the center from which we interact with the world. It is the connection of the sense of ourselves with the world –us in relation to the world. And it therefore has a lot to do with our ability to act. What do we feel capable of, what can we do 'out there', outside ourselves?

At the level of our mind the energies of reflectthe navel chakraour self-confidence and self-esteem: do we trust that we can act effectively in the world? At the skill level, these energies manifest as our ability to use our mental energy effectively: do we have the focus and organizational talent, the perseverance and endurance to accomplish what we set out to do?

When the energy is in balance, your actions are connected to your own core. You then turn out to have a power that you never thought possible.You don't get tired of being busy, on the contrary, you become more and more enthusiastic.When you are in contact with that power, it is as if you feel the activity of the unseen, formless world.

It is also about energetic boundaries – our ability to create an energetic filter that shields the energies from others and the world around us that we allow to enter our energy body.
