When you listen to your gut, you’re tapping into your third chakra.
Your third chakra is your personal power center and resides in your solar plexus, right below your ribcage. It’s called the Manipura chakra, which means the body’s brain, and is yellow.
When seen in the aura, luminous yellow means intelligence and optimism…some of the same qualities are also seen when it’s a soul color.
Yellow is probably the toughest color to keep true. When you shade yellow with black or gray, you get a yellow-green tinge, resulting in deep olives and bronzes.
There is nothing wrong with these colors out in the world but as your personal power color, your yellow needs to be clear and bright.
What It's Like When Your Power Center is Out of Balance
If you’re feeling powerless or losing hope, it means your power center needs a boost.
When your third chakra becomes a dingey yellow, it causes fear and self-consciousness. If it gets to be more of a sickly green, it can cause selfishness where you want to hoard your knowledge and keep secrets.
If you’re not feeling super confident about your direction, are needing clarity, or are having a tough time making decisions, your third chakra may need to be cleared.
Clearing Your Solar Plexus and Creating Intuitive Balance
The direct complement to yellow is blue-violet. And blue-violet rules your 3rd Eye chakra which governs your intuition.
Having a clear mind-gut connection within your energy body is just as important as within your physical body.
A great way to balance these two important chakras so that you can trust your intuition and power is to envision blue-violet light (the hottest light) brightening your solar plexus and luminous yellow light brightening your third eye.
It’s easy to do this first thing in the morning or when you feel the need:
→ Ask your higher self and guardian angel to step forward and assist you in brightening and clearing these two chakras.
→ Start by clearing your solar plexus and third eye with clear, white light.
→ Then envision the blue-violet light glowing in your third eye and beaming its rays to brighten and clear your third chakra.
→ Once your third chakra is a beautiful and glowing yellow, envision it sending a ray of luminous light to your third eye.
Yellow and blue-violet work together to create a harmonious balance between both chakras. These important energy centers help you to stay confident, powerful, and optimistic.
