Healing the Solar Plexus Chakra
Self-confidence. Self-esteem. Self-respect. Self-image. Self-worth.
The solar plexus chakra is the energy center for all of the empowering self words. Want to build more confidence? Ready to boost your self-esteem? Looking to create a positive self-image and cultivate everlasting self-worth?
Then it’s time to focus on the solar plexus chakra, your body’s energy center for confidence, joy, positivity, empowerment, and drive. Located a couple inches above the navel, just below your chest (you might call this the pit of your stomach), your solar plexus chakra is also your energy center of alignment with your purpose and core values.
Now, the truth is, most of us don’t feel good 100% of the time. Even those of us who have generally high self-esteem experience moments of doubt and insecurity.
And that’s okay.
It’s normal not to feel positive every single moment of every day. The key is to recognize when you’re feeling low and to know that even though you may be having negative thoughts, it doesn’t make them true.
On top of that, it’s important to have the tools you need to help build your confidence back up when it’s low.
Positive affirmations are an important part of your self-care toolkit, and so is journaling. I’ve been journaling every morning for the past several years, and it’s made a huge impact on my confidence and self-belief. Journaling allows me to get in touch with my inner self and explore all my hidden depths.
And, I’ve discovered, the more I’ve gotten to know the real me, the more I like myself.
Below are 30 powerful solar plexus journal prompts to help you explore your own inner world. Specifically, these questions are geared toward discovering your confidence, finding your purpose, and celebrating all the things that make you awesome.
Explore these journal prompts with an open mind and open heart, and write your answers with courage, honesty, and lots of self-love.
And to go even deeper into balancing your solar plexus chakra, I’ve also put together 35 solar plexus chakra affirmations for confidence and motivation. You’ll also get these affirmations, along with the journal prompts below, if you sign up for the free printable at the bottom of this post.
How to Use These Journal Prompts
The journal prompts below are designed to help you open, activate, and heal your solar plexus chakra. Each prompt explores one of the central attributes of this energy center, including confidence, self-respect, self-worth, purpose, drive, positivity, joy, and more.
There aren’t many rules about how to approach these prompts, as each person is different, and we all have different preferences and needs.
If you want, you can read through the prompts and choose the ones that resonate most with you. If you do this, I would encourage you to still give some of the other prompts a try, as something might come to the surface for you that you weren’t expecting.
You can also choose to start at the top and work your way to the bottom one prompt at a time.
Whatever you decide to do, just make sure you have some quiet time to yourself to do this work. Whether it’s 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or longer, the most important thing is that you truly have time and space to explore your inner world without distractions.
And my only other rule? (Well, more like a loving suggestion.)
Be kind to yourself as you answer these questions.
Be compassionate. Release self-criticism and self-judgment. The goal here isn’t to be perfect; the goal is to heal and fully explore your inner world. To do that, you must be wholeheartedly honest and kind to yourself throughout the process.
So as you walk forward in this journey, make self-love your first priority, and let it lead you on your path.
