The Connection Between Your Digestion and Your Business

The Connection Between Your Digestion and Your Business

Earlier today, I was spinning.  The type of spinning that’s in my head, with thoughts feeling like freight trains going by.  I grabbed a quick bite to eat on-the-go, felt my stomach burning with indigestion.  I tackled my to-do list and zoomed on a meeting.  I was all fire.


And then I was totally drained.  I was feeling panicky, short of breath.  I started doubting the steps I was taking to grow my business.  For a moment I felt resentful of all those people wanting my time and energy. 


Does this ever happen to you?


Because I’m an Energy Therapist with decades of tools and experience, I can recognize when my energy is out of balance.  I don’t always get it right because I’m also very human, but when I catch myself in those spins, I know what to do to come back to balance.


The symptoms of stress, overwhelm and indigestion are often linked to the Solar Plexus chakra.  This energy centre is the key to your personal power.  It gives you the confidence to shine your brilliance and take the right action to nourish and grow.


When this energy centre is deficient in energy, it will be difficult for you to set clear boundaries and you’ll soon feel like that proverbial welcome mat.  You might feel that you don’t have power of choice in your business; you’ll feel stuck in a routine that is not yours or that you’ve outgrown.  When someone asks, “What do you want to do today?”… You might chronically respond with, “I don’t know.  What do you want to do?” 


On the other hand, when this energy centre has too much fire energy, you will feel the need to control everything and everyone.  Your obsessive attention to details or how people “should” respond to you or act around you will drive your anxiety. 


With a balanced Solar Plexus chakra, you will feel vibrant and healthy.  You will increase your ability to go with the flow.  You will find it easier to walk away from disrespect, set firm boundaries, negotiate from a position of self-worth, and truly feel and express your power safely.


Imagine having the confidence to set the price-point you desire, and calmly share that number with clients…


Imagine actually living your dream life with a schedule you love, without feeling that you must be “on” all the time or work 20-hour days…


Imagine having the energy you need to do all the things you love to do…


All that is possible with a balanced Solar Plexus chakra.

Is your Solar Plexus chakra balanced?


Simply answer YES or NO to each of the statements below. If you score more than four NOs it may indicate that your Solar Plexus chakra is imbalanced. If you score four or more YES answers, wonderful! You are balanced in the Solar Plexus centre. 


  • I feel confident in most situations.
  • I am able to laugh easily.
  • I see projects and commitments through to completion. 
  • I have a healthy digestive system.
  • I speak up for myself.
  • I have the courage to take risks when necessary.
  • I establish appropriate boundaries for myself.


Tips to bring your Solar Plexus back to balance:

Today as I realized I was in a spin, I chose to stop.  I took my puppy Luna out for a walk so we could both enjoy this perfect Autumn sunshine.  I took time to nourish my body and my mind instead of rushing through everything and not savoring food — or life.


My favourite meditation to nourish my Solar Plexus centre is to sit quietly in the sun.  I take a deep breath and become mindful of the feeling of the sun on my skin.  I focus on belly breaths for at least five minutes, and I smile. 


I love simple rituals like this one!  I can do this one anywhere, anytime when I feel I need to restore and replenish my energy.  Try it and let me know how it works for you!
