Third chakra healing techniques
Healing the solar plexus chakra at an early stage is a relatively simple process.
However, if you haven’t tended to its imbalance for many years, and exacerbated its condition, you’ll require great mental and physical exertion to restore balance to your world.
Some exercises, when done correctly can help in unblocking the pathway of the Manipura.
Foods that can help restore the imbalance of the solar plexus chakra include bananas, antelopes, papaya, oranges, satsuma, sweet potatoes, butternut squash and other similar foods that have a yellow colour as the colour that is associated with Manipura is also yellow.
These foods are highly effective in healing and uprooting the blockages of the solar plexus chakra.
Meditation is a technique that has a marked effect on the health of your solar plexus chakra. It is used to cure many conditions and various chakra blockages and has found its application since ancient times.
It’s a simple exercise but requires complete mental focus. Meditation combined with chakra stones make for a deadly duo.
If you meditate with third chakra healing stones such as tourmaline and amber, you’ll effectuate the healing process.
The use of aromatic oils, such as citrus essential oil, orange oil can remove the blockages in the pathway of the solar plexus chakra.
You can use these oils in baths or simply inhale their aroma. Couples these oils with meditation or yoga, and you have yourself an effective remedy.
The aroma of these oils has miraculous healing abilities.
Yoga practice on a daily basis can go a long way in improving the condition of your third chakra. Asanas that is directed towards the core strength is perfect for eradicating the blockage of the third chakra.

What makes Yoga and meditation even more effective? Doing them outside in the warmth of the yellow burning sun.
