6 Tools for Self-empowerment to courageously follow your dreams
Do you feel stuck in a sticky situation? Stepping out of your comfort zone and embarking on a more aligned path to your higher purpose is scary and well… uncomfortable. However, when we don’t follow our inner compass, our adrenals constantly fire leading to burnout. And unfortunately, burnout just further weakens our ability to take action. So, how do you get out of the rut?
It starts with grounding your energy to Mother Earth, and activating your solar plexus chakra, the center of your personal power and inner fire.
When your solar plexus chakra is activated, you can act on your soul’s calling and push on regardless of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
The following tools help to activate the solar plexus chakra. Coupled with a little help from the stars, and you’re on your way to stepping into your authentic power.
May this be just the boost you need to courageously follow your dreams.
1 – Look to Mars
Self-inquiry is a powerful tool for harnessing your unique soul gifts. How do you take action and fight for what you believe in?
Your Mars sign holds the key. By working with Mars, you’re in the drivers seat, moving towards your dreams with courage and stamina.
2 – Tune into the Miracle Tone
528 hz, also known as the Miracle Tone, is the Solfeggio frequency associated with the solar plexus chakra.
First, light a candle to connect to the primal fire inside you. Next, play the 528 hz frequency (there are many options on Youtube), while watching the flame flicker, crackle and glow in the darkness.
Bring your awareness to something that is holding you back from pursuing your dreams. This could be an aspect of yourself, a bad habit, an old story from the past, or a toxic relationship. Write down what you are releasing and let the paper catch fire. Place the paper on a heat proof container, such as an abalone shell, and watch the fire transform the energy.

4 – Practice Fearless Heart Mudra
Fearless Heart, or Abhaya Hrdaya, mudra increases focus and vitality, while washing away scattered energy. With regular practice it connects you to the “heart of the matter”, verses being lost in the story. This mudra gives you the courage to follow your heart.
How To: Cross your right wrist over your left wrist in front of your sternum, with the palms facing away from each other. Bring the back of your hands together, wrap your right index finger around the left index finger, then your right middle finger over your left, skip over the ring finger and wrap your right little finger over your left. Extend your ring fingers and thumbs out to each other to make a seal.
5 – Breath of Fire
This potent practice from the Kundalini yoga tradition promotes resilience, strength, confidence and vitality. It also releases energetic blockages and creates clarity of mind.
Sit in a relaxed and upright position, and open your arms wide out to the sides with your palms turned open. Fold the 4 fingers into the palm and spin fire thumb up. Inhale raise arms a little into a wide “V”.
Breathe through the nose with the mouth closed and teeth slightly apart. Begin to inhale and exhale rapidly as you pump the belly in and out. In other words, on the exhale, expel air through the nose by pressing the navel back toward the spine and on each inhale, let the belly relax.
After 1-3 minutes of rapid breathing, inhale raise the arms and join thumb tips together. After a short retention of breath, exhale as you draw your hands down to Anjali mudra.
Repeat 1-3 times.
6 – Work with gold tiger’s eye
And of course a stunning crystal or two doesn’t hurt! Gold tiger’s eye, in particular, heightens your senses in order to interpret what’s going on around you.
This stone is also a good ally when you courageously follow your heart. No need to check in for the approval of your peers with this bad boy. Gold tiger’s eye helps you feel self-empowered, and step into a position of leadership.
After cleansing gold tiger’s eye of past programming and any low vibes, charge it in sunlight with your intention of bravely following your personal truth. The shimmers of gold expand your vision to unlimited possibilities.
