Will Power.. What a strange thing. We all have it, some of us wish we had more of it, but it definitely affects our lives. Are we more successful if we have more will power? I don’t know. But I would like to find out what effect ‘will power’ has on our lives and if we should therefore work on increasing it.
I have never really struggled with will power. It is always something that I have had quite a lot of and I can control myself if I need too. This isn’t always a good thing though, I don’t think it’s healthy to have too much will power. We need balance in life and this totally applies to how much will power we have and use.
Scientific studies show that will power is something that we have a limited amount of. Once we have used up our will power for the day then we have no more. It makes sense then to be mindful about what you are using this energy on and therefore chose what you should be using your will power on and what you can relax about.
The solar plexus chakra is the centre of our will power. It is located in the upper part of your belly, around the diaphragm. It is yellow colour and associated with the element fire.
Along with will power: decline, independence, confidence, intellect and taking responsibility for ones life, are all associated with this chakra. Therefore it is very important to make sure this chakra is in balance so that you can be your best self and achieve everything you want in life.
If your solar plexus chakra is in an imbalance then you will lack will power along with other things. You might also be lacking power or misusing your power and will feel that you lack a clear direction in life.
There are many ways to heal and re-balance your chakra.
Firstly with food! Healing foods include squash, sweet potatoes, brown rice, corn, pumpkins and lentils. Some of my favourite foods. I recommend making my creamy vegan coconut and lentil soup for a super healing meal. (Especially with winter coming!)
As well as these healing foods, you can also unblock your solar plexus chakra with yoga, meditation and healing affirmations. If you would like more information on this then check out chakra info for more information!
So just to recap. Yes will power is helpful for achieving our goals. Will power comes from our solar plexus chakra. There are many things we can do to unblock this chakra if we feel we are lacking will power.
A final note..,
I just want to say that you don’t have to have a lot of will power. If you are struggling with will power related to a particular area in your life then maybe you should address that area and not your will power. For example when it comes to food. We shouldn’t have to have lots of will power to stop ourselves having that dessert and going to bed hungry at night. That is not healthy! So use your will power wisely guys 🙂
Hope this has been helpful!
