Tuesday’s child and the Solar Plexus Chakra

Tuesday is like the middle child. More attention either goes toward getting through Monday or looking forward to hump day tomorrow. Poor little Tuesday is left all alone.


How interesting that the Solar Plexus chakra deals with self-identity. This is where the ego resides. This energy centre can be over active (egotistical) or under active (lack of confidence).


This third energy centre governs the digestive system and pancreas gland. It also relates to the element of fire. Physically the solar plexus area has a bundle of nerves (plexus) that control the digestive system. So that fire in your belly isn’t just a saying.

Connecting with the Solar Plexus Chakra

Naturally, the colour yellow represents the Solar Plexus chakra. Our inner sun. This is why Citrine is a perfect crystal for Tuesdays. Citrine can bring cheerful energy to the dullest day. When I meditate with Citrine it never fails to bring a little ray of happiness to my soul.


Affirmations are a great way to connect with this energy centre. The process of creating your own affirmation is very therapeutic. But if it isn’t your super power you can use this one below to help make your Tuesday a little bit brighter.

Check your Solar Plexus Chakra balance with these questions:
Are you judgmental or critical of others? (Yes = overactive)
Are you judgmental or critical toward yourself? (Yes = underactive)
Do you get angry easily? (Yes = overactive)
Do you have digestion issues? (Yes = out of balance. Could be over or under active)

Tuesday Solar Plexus Reflection

  • You are what you eat. Take stock of your current diet. Add healthy foods that are easily digestible.
  • Deep Breathing. Helps open the diaphragm and relax the solar plexus.
  • Add some scents! Your sense of smell helps to enhance a healthy diet.
  • Frankincense essential oil helps stimulate the solar plexus chakra. This brings inner strength and the ability to adapt to situations easier. It also enhances your confidence in a healthy way. It even helps relieve indigestion symptoms.
  • Your favourite scent can help cheer you up and strengthen your confidence. A little dab will do ya 😉

When you use essential oils make sure they are pure. Most store bought oils are not. So buyer beware.
