something needs to be addressed. As soon as the emotional issue has been
resolved, the ache WILL clear up or simply completely vanish.

a feeling as though something is moving inside you. Back ache, pains at
the front of our body and sensitivity.

more serious issues such as.

Stomach problems. Food Allergies.
When in balance the solar plexus chakra offers us;
Optimism and a healthy ego. We are able to feel
our emotions. We
feel joyful, happy and enthusastic.

The aim is to have all chakras in complete balance with each other. If six
are weak and one is strong it could mean you are OVER confident, OVER
trusting, OVER creative etc.. thus re-balancing must either involve
increasing the size of all the other chakras or reducing the influence of
the strong chakra.
