The Solar Plexus Chakra: Signs of Blockage and How to Heal

The third piece in the Chakra Series

Welcome back to my Chakra Series for post #3—the solar plexus chakra! I’m extremely excited to be writing this article today. It has been a week of difficult but for-the-best change in my life, and I’ve felt my solar plexus chakra opening up and radiating with an incredibly intense energy. It feels like I’ve really come into my personal power, to the point where I’ve jokingly warned my friends that they are about to be overwhelmed by the love and energy that’s coursing through my veins, threatening to envelop everything within a 50-mile radius.

On Living Purposefully

Everyone can find a way to make time to engage in activities that make them come alive.

/ˈpərpəsfəl/
adjective
Having or showing determination or resolve; having a useful purpose; intentional.

 

One morning about a month and a half ago, I was taking a shower, getting ready for work. It had been a long and exhausting summer at work, and although I certainly enjoyed aspects of it, I felt that every moment of free time was consumed by my exhaustion. I was burnt out, and it was difficult for me to put time and energy toward the things that brought me alive. Some of my creative endeavors—one of them, writing—were falling to the wayside, and I began to feel like a robot whose sole task was to go to work every morning and come home, exhausted, every evening. It was a hopeless, numbing feeling, and I did not feel like I was living intentionally, wholeheartedly, or purposefully. This is one of the reasons that, in the shower that morning, I simply decided that I needed to quit my job. At least for a while. Continue reading “On Living Purposefully”
