Modern Medicine has related the Solar Plexus to the Adrenal Glands, these being mainly responsible for releasing hormones in conjunction with Stress. They are located just above the Kidneys in humans.

The Solar Plexus is Yellow and is probably one of the easiest Chakras as a novice to find, it is also one of the most difficult to cleanse and balance. It can be found at the point where the ribs meet, and sits in the centre of the body. The Solar Plexus is the point where material or physical wants and needs are resolved before moving to the heart chakra. Gut instinct is core to our survival both physically and meta-physically, understanding right from wrong. The more we rely on gut instinct and follow our own instinctive traits, the Solar Plexus will develop and balance the other chakras encouraging them into alignment. The Solar Plexus also stops the interference or disturbances from outside the physical realms affecting the human characteristics of self. For the people that use shielding techniques; allow the shield to come from the Solar Plexus. Common names associated with this Chakra are Solar plexus, Third Chakra, Navel, Tanden, Manipura, Ten Petal Lotus.
The Solar Plexus begins developing from the age of 14 and is developed enough to cope by the age of 21, the Solar Plexus is unique it redevelops and re-invents itself continually maturing and nurturing other Chakra’s. The Solar Plexus is the only Chakra that radiates in the sense that it shines brightly whilst rotating anti-clockwise and being perfectly balanced it shines making it one of the easier ones to both feel and see but also to disturb and unsettle.
Of our five human senses, exploring the sense of sight and seeing the world through rose coloured glasses will help open and enable exploration of the Solar Plexus. The scent of Mountain Mist or Rosemary will help. A sense of humour and the ability to not take self to literally or seriously will help with the day to day maintenance.
The Solar Plexus takes care of the physical/material wants and needs, it sits above the Root and Sacral Chakra’s and is paired with the crown chakra. Its prime task is to work with the positive laws of attraction and change a human limitation into a positive experience. Fear into Love, sadness into surrender, loss into acceptance, carelessness into learning.
An unbalanced or dirty Chakra is a potential cause for the body to physically or mentally manifest a variety of illnesses. If medical science is unable to diagnose an underlying cause or if the ailment is random or instant then this is potentially a cause worth considering.
The positive attributes to the Solar Plexus are: Dynamism or get up and go, enthusiasm, independent decision making, zest for life, synchronicity, laws of attraction. (good and bad)
At the other end is the negative aspects brought forward from a dull or smokey yellowish soft chakra: Bullying, the need to be in control, the need to micro-manage, self-centredness.
