The Solar Plexus
A plexus is an intricate network of nerves. The one behind your stomach is called “solar” because of the many nerves that radiate out from it. And, like the sun, this Solar Plexus is a central distribution point from which the energy of your body is constantly generating. This energy is real, and like the sun in the sky, it is incredibly powerful and crucial to your life.
The energy that radiates from your Solar Plexus is thrown off in the atmosphere that envelopes your body. When this radiation is strong, a person seems “magnetic.” Others are attracted to them, it feels good to be around them. Their presence alone will often soothe troubled minds.
The Cause of Every Ill
When the Solar Plexus radiation becomes blocked for any reason — such as worry, guilt, and fear — the life energy from the Divine Force is diminished or blocked. This is the cause of every ill to the human race: physical, mental, and environmental.
Physical, because your internal sun is no longer generating enough energy to vitalize the body. Mental, because because your two minds rely on the Sympathetic Nervous System to function smoothly. Environmental because the connection of your subconscious mind with the Sacred Power of the Universal Mind mind is interrupted.
Life is expressive and it is our privilege to express ourselves harmoniously and constructively. Sorry, misery, unhappiness, disease, and poverty are effects. You are the only one who can identify and eliminate their causes. Rise above and beyond all limitations of any kind by paying careful attention to what you are thinking. What is going in and and what is coming out of your mind? Will yourself to consciously replace negative thoughts that oppress you with ideas that bring freedom and harmony.
The Second Meditation
Sit still, close your eyes, and relax your entire body. Is your solar plexus relaxed or does it feel “nervous?” Relax your conscious mind by inhibiting thought and lingering in the present moment. You will still get messages from your senses and make conclusions about them, because that is part of your automatic survival mechanism. You are safe in this moment. Just relax into the present and rest your mind. Next, visualize your solar plexus as a bright sun that radiates healing warmth and comfort.
When you notice that your mind has wandered, make a mental sweep of your body, relaxing any tense areas that have developed. End the meditation by clearing your mind of daydreams, plans, reasoning. Simply rest in the silence.
