The 3rd Chakra: YELLOW

The 3rd Chakra: YELLOW

The third chakra is called the Solar Plexus or yellow chakra and is the seat of our personal power. The third chakra stores our judgments, opinions and beliefs that we have gathered throughout our lives; about ourselves and the world we live in.

When your third chakra is open and balanced, you exercise the choices in your life and become in charge of your own destiny. You are also able to choose your own beliefs rather than conforming to the external beliefs imposed upon you.
