3. The Colour YELLOW
When we consider our basic, or major, seven chakras or psychic centers, we imagine the colours of the rainbow. The third colour we can consider is yellow, located at the site of the solar plexus chakra. It is in the area of the ‘pit of your stomach’, or in the centre of your waist.
The solar plexus chakra is the site of personal power. It is the place of confidence and self-esteem. This is where the energy for feeling confident, liked, respected, powerful and in control is located. When we are ill, distressed, angry or feeling unsupported and ignored, this chakra often is in a state of disharmony. To someone who can ‘see’ the aura, the colour yellow may appear weak, pale, scattered, lop-sided or even non-existent. To one who can see the actual chakras, the yellow colour may appear pale and insipid and the chakra itself may be very small and/or misshapen. At other times it may also be boldly much larger, out of proportion and overly bright to the point of being harsh.
Close your eyes. Imagine a field of yellow buttercups, dandelions or yellow roses, or imagine a favourite yellow object. Slowly counting to four, breathe that pure yellow hue in through your nose. While holding your breath for a count of five, six or seven (whichever you are able to comfortably maintain), allow it to course down to the bottom of your spine then rise and settle at the solar plexus area in the centre of your stomach just below the ribcage. Breathe out through your mouth for a count of five, six or seven (again, whichever is most comfortable). As you exhale, visualize that the breath has picked up any deep-seated anxieties and toxins and is releasing those into the air and away from you. Repeat the breath work, noticing how the yellow light softly yet strongly illuminates the solar plexus area of your torso. As you become comfortable with the routine of breathing, notice how the light illuminates that area like a band of beautiful yellow light all around your waist. Visualize the yellow light gently bathing and softly warming the pit of your stomach, your liver, your spleen and your adrenal glands, freeing any negativity and opening you to the power you hold within. Feel the respect you have for yourself. Bathe in the feeling of support and acknowledgement of your gifts. Feel the power of the freedom to make decisions and be organized and in control. You can feel your solar plexus chakra anchor and stabilize. You feel strong, capable and powerful. You ARE strong, capable and powerful.
Practice this meditation for ten to fifteen minutes, for three consecutive days if possible. Keep a journal and make notes of any changes you may notice in your well-being.
