The issues that arise when the Solar Plexus chakra is unbalanced revolve around lack of self-confidence or self-assurance and a feeling of disempowerment. There are many signs that show when the chakra is unbalanced such as an inability to express joy or accept criticism and an inability to make decisions. Other signs would be feelings of fear or intimidation and a lack of trust in people. Medical problems such as digestive issues, eating disorders, constipation, diabetes, and ulcers suggest an imbalance of the Solar Plexus chakra as well. Nervousness and poor memory can also result when then the chakra is imbalanced. An excessive amount of the chakra can lead to irritability, a need to perfect and an excessive desire for power, prestige, and acknowledgment. Also a need to control everything and dominate situations.
