I'm confused about the chakras. Is the solar plexus the navel, or above it?

One book I read said the solar plexus is the navel and the orange chakra is midway between it and the red, the other book I read said the navel is the orange chakra and the solar plexus is just above it. I know the other chakras fine, I just need help with these two.


  1. Solar Plexus is at the center of your stomach/chest area where your rib-cage meets your belly. It’s the yellow chakra.

  2. No the solar plexus is the soft area just above the belly and below the chest, right in the center of your torso or between and just below the nipples

  3. I have always believed that the solar plexus is the area of the diaphragm in the middle, right between where your ribs and below where your sternum stop. You can feel it if you push in that area.

  4. Root = base of spine/pubic bone
    Second = belly button
    Solar plexus – that hollow at the bottom end of your sternum
    heart – just over your physical one
    Throat – the dip just beneath your adams apple
    Third eye – middle of your forehead
    Crown – above your head
    Hope that helps.

  5. Look up the anatomy of celiac plexus
    that is the correct anotomical term for solar plexus
    You might want to try to encyclopedia.
    or wikipedia

    With this info you can decipher for yourself where the chakra should be – as there is only one solar plexus in the body.
    However it is made up of many minor plexi

  6. Don’t be confused about the chakras. The solar plexus is at the navel, not above it. Its called nabhi chakra or manipur chakra.

  7. More than going deeper into the subject of chakras… I would advise you to concentrate more on full awakening of the Kundalini. I never went after awakening of my Kundalini. I was simply searching for God. I had a confirmed desire to see and meet God in this very life. My resolve at 15 years of age was absolute. There was no looking back or reversing the path! I had to find God in this very life.
    I continued on and on and at 37 years of age I finally realized God. Only after self realization did I realize that my Kundalini had awakened fully unknown to me. Till that time I did not know the full meaning of Kundalini. After realization of God… the dictate I got from God removed all my doubts. I slowly realized what I had accomplished.
    The opening of the chakras one after another is not difficult if we practice absolute truthfulness and celibacy as part of our daily life… a daily routine! Absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years is a must for full awakening of the Kundalini. Under all circumstances we need to preserve the monthly quota of energy provided to every human being (men and women) by the grace of God.
    Full awakening of the Kundalini results in one reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi when one can have communion with God on one-to-one basis and that too permanently! Traveling the spiritual path is not that difficult as it seems. Neither do we need to leave the confines of our family to achieve worthwhile results! The path of enlightenment is difficult not unachievable!
    The opening of Shahastra Pushpa behind the forehead in the brain, experiencing bliss all the time is something that cannot be explained in words! No matter what… every human being has to travel the spiritual path and reach the stage of enlightenment. Whether we do it now in this life or four manifestations next is our prerogative. Who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation! More on Kundalini Awakening – http://www.godrealized.org/kundalini_awakening.html
