The Emotional Solar Plexus is an important center that is attached to our emotions, passion, and feelings. It is highly susceptible to conditioning, and each gate in this center has to do with how we feel and express our feelings.
People with Defined Emotional Solar Plexus are emotional beings who experience the full spectrum of feelings, which can sometimes feel like chaos. Their emotions are like the restless ocean, rolling like waves, rising and falling, peaking and dipping. It is important for them to ride their wave before making any decisions, recognizing these emotional waves and allowing them to pass through instead of owning them. They are responsible not only for their own moods but also for influencing the moods of people around them.
With an Undefined Emotional Solar Plexus, people do not have consistent access to their own feelings. They take in and amplify the emotions of others, and their emotions are triggered by them, whether healthy or toxic. To transform this conditioning, people need to learn to not react to emotions that are not part of them. Instead, they should reflect back their clear perception of what is going on, observed from the objective sidelines. They should be a witness, not a player.
People with Undefined Centers have the challenge of sorting through what’s theirs and what belongs to others. They may feel upset and not even know why. They’ve got to work hard to get it cleaned up and straightened out. Unless they have found a way to manage the intensity of feelings coming their way, they tend to be nice as a defense against being blasted. They may not tell the truth if they’re afraid of upsetting people and having to process their upset. They may also have a flat-line quality around feelings and may feel that something is wrong with them because they’re completely unemotional. However, being unemotional can be recognized as a gift. If people learn to witness rather than identify with the feelings of others, they can appreciate their even keel. They can access a kind of steady peace when they’re on their own.
People with Undefined Centers have the capacity to take in people’s feelings and can be the ultimate empath. They know what people feel as if they were their feelings. This is a brilliant skill as a therapist or coach to understand what is going on with others. They’ll need to stop merging with people and identifying with their feelings. They can learn to be a screen and not a sponge, so that other people’s feelings pass through them.
It is important to clean their filters, and their job is to get clear on what is theirs and what is not. Whether it’s conditioning from the past or people in the present that they are merging with, they need unobstructed filters. To accomplish this, they need a willingness to let go into openness. It also requires doing some deep inquiry and truth-telling.
The Open Emotional Solar Plexus can be where trauma is stored. People should not be discouraged if this takes time and support from someone who can midwife them in their process.
In conclusion, the Emotional Solar Plexus plays a vital role in our lives. Whether it is Defined or Undefined, it is essential to recognize and understand how it works. People with Defined Centers must learn to ride their emotional waves and manage their moods while being aware of their impact on others. Meanwhile, people with Undefined Centers must learn to witness, not identify with, the feelings of others and sort through what’s theirs and what belongs to others. Both require work, but with time and support, they can master their Emotional Solar Plexus and live a more fulfilling life.
