Stressed? Then you need yellow!!

Our stress centre is our solar plexus chakra. Here we feel a tightness that affects our breathing when we experience stress and worry. It is at the base of our sternum at the bottom of the centre of the rib cage. When working properly this energy centre controls our digestion and personal power.
   But....during times of stress it will go out of balance and cause a tightness around the ribs. Our diaphragm will contract and we will shallow breathe. This will cause cloudy fuzzy thinking which adds to our feelings of stress.
   So what can we do?
Eat yellow fruit such as melon, bananas, yellow plums and lemon juice. Lemon juice in water is great for the solar plexus and also helps boost the livers function. Our livers go into over drive when we are stressed, especially if we comfort eat the wrong foods. lemon juice is a great natural booster and tonic for the liver.
  Yellow peppers, sweetcorn and squash are great yellow foods to help boost the solar plexus chakra. Organic is best but some is better than none!
   Wearing yellow tops also helps, especially when they cover the rib cage. Or hug a yellow pillow while relaxing or watching TV. Yellow flowers near by are also a great booster.
    Crystals such as Citrine and yellow Calcite can be kept on the body to help add healing energy to the chakra. Pop them down your bra ladies or in your pocket.....ladies and gents!!
    Chakra symbols are also a great way to instantly balance the centre. simple sit softly gazing at the symbol and breath in peace and out tension. Repeat for as long as you can. 10-30mins would be a good start.

So add a bit of yellow to your life!!

Love & Light
