Our naval, centered within the body’s solar plexus region is our umbilical ‘core’ connection to the universal life force. It was our gestational portal that received sustenance from our mother inside her womb, and continues to serve us today as our portal of connection to the universal womb of creation. What does this mean?
Our solar plexus chakra, or spiritual center located in the solar plexus region is innately bonded with our core consciousness. It is an information gateway and emotional record keeper that continually intakes the accountings of our life experiences. From an esoteric standpoint, the solar plexus chakra, in tandem with the seat of the soul and base chakras, encodes the hidden message of our ancestral history, passed down from generation to generation.
Have you ever noticed that your navel is highly sensitive to the touch, as if it were the forbidden zone in your body? This is due, in part, to the highly charged emotional spiral of our history it holds that is protective against disturbance. The naval is like a seed storehouse of these records of emotion.
There’s no mistaking that our internal record keeper is called the solar plexus. Within its name, lies the solution. ‘Solar’ means ‘sun,’ and ‘plexus’ means a ‘network of vessels in the body.’ These two bring together a cosmology of body and soul.
Consider then, that our genetic code is perhaps not etched in stone as the old laws of science would purport. Rather new scientific breakthroughs reveal that our DNA, in part, can be malleable according to our own evolutionary process. So how can we accelerate this process by using the Sun to ignite our solar field?
The ancients knew that the Sun can charge our network of vessels with light and transport our awareness into higher realms. Throughout time, the sun has been a esoteric central focal point in virtually every culture, valued as the first entity in “the Void” and the progenitor of all life and matter. It was revered as the most visible symbol of the divine and the most potent bestower of spiritual power. The sun has been worshiped as the eternal ‘purifier of the soul,’ signifying immortality with its continual rising after setting. Ancient philosophers referred to the Sun as the Archetypal Human, as human beings were perceived as “solar entities.”
Solar wisdom can enhance a person’s level of optimism and transpose the spiral of the shadow self. Here are some easy, enjoyable lifestyle rituals for increasing your solar field:
Solar Bathing: The Sun’s healing rays are assimilated through your eyes and the solar plexus region of the body and converted into Vitamin D.
