Many people have asked: What is Chakra? Even when they already have the answer, they often associate the word with the Third Chakra or the Solar Plexus Chakra which rules the entire abdominal area and is also called the solar center. It requires the sun or sunlight to activate it. In other words, the color yellow. What do we say when someone is afraid or we want them to do something truly crazy? “You are just yellow belly.”
When I think of yellow, I think of sunlight, dancing, daffodils, sunflowers, chiffon, my favorite doll dress, fields of wild flowers, lemons, golden berries, eggs sitting in their white dresses, and dancing skirts of yellow swirls. Yellow may be a power color, a primary color, but it is also the “power of happiness” color. It is the “wake up” color, the burst-forth-with-energy color—your navel and mine.
Yellow is there to uplift and give you Energy with a big E. It is bright and alive; it wants to dance with you. It wants you to get out and dance with life. When you want to be in your power and be able to empower others, then it is the time to…
- Paint a wall in your living space yellow and see what happens.
- Wear a yellow blouse, tie, scarf or, yes, even a skirt, and see what happens to you and your day.
- Get a Yellow Chakra Pillow
Yellow will not let you sit still but it will make you delightfully happy at the core of your being through the Solar Plexus Chakra.
Look at the things that are yellow in your life; your surroundings. How do you feel around them? What do they tell you? What do they give you? Yes, I want you to tune into this color for it is springtime somewhere, right? The crocuses are bursting through the snow, giving hope. Yellow will help you be aware of energy if you pay attention. Make it the focus of your attention today. Don’t be a yellow belly. Take the risk to get powerful and able and willing to empower others if you want True Power. That is what this Third Chakra is about—Earth Power.
When we say someone is yellow, it is not a compliment. It means you are a coward; you live in fear. But here is Yellow as a color that is actually an antidote for your fear. Let me know that you have made friends with this meditation, meaning you must do it for 40 days and then tell me if it works. Just 11 minutes for starters and don’t be afraid of this commitment. Lose fear and gain love. Yellow is both the dance-upward and downward color for the Third Chakra wherein the Yellow Chakra Pillow can also be a support tool.
Love you (in a Juicy Yellow dancing embrace without fear).
Jump into that which will give you light!
