When stress or life changes set in, they can take a toll on your body, mind, and spirit. One area that stress hits hard is your abdomen, which is the home to your solar plexus chakra, as well as the physical organs and processes of digestion. Stress impacting these areas can shut down our confidence energy and cause disruptions in our normal digestive habits. These may seem like unrelated challenges, but because they are both directly influenced by imbalances in the energetic flow in the solar plexus abdominal area, they are actually quite intimately connected.
A powerful stone for activating and aligning this highly sensitive part of our body is Citrine. It works its magic in the solar plexus in many ways.
Here are three powerful benefits of Citrine:
- Boosts Confidence – When placed on or near the solar plexus (the area right below the rib cage), this stone can unblock energy flow to give you the boost of power you need when you’re feeling stuck, scared, or anxious.
- Aids Digestion – Keeping a Citrine crystal nearby when you eat can give your brain the reminder it needs to appreciate and savor your food while also soothing the digestive tract so that food is processed easily.
- Strengthens Food Tolerance – When you have dietary restrictions, food intolerances or allergies, or are on an elimination or special diet, Citrine can help you stay on track by both giving you the strength you need to stick to the plan AND powering up your digestive tract to process the foods you CAN eat most effectively.
Keep Citrine with you in the kitchen when preparing food to remind you of the nutritional benefit of food, in your pocket when you need a boost of confidence, or in your purse when you’re eating at home or at a restaurant to help ease digestion. Citrine is a little stone with big powers!
