Chakra: Solar Plexus
Citrine brings confidence, the energy to succeed and a clarity of mind and purpose. It will always help to bring together different energies; particularly if there is a conflict between desire and reality, between an idealist and a pragmatist, or between relaxation and action.
In situations that lack in clarity, citrine will bring in the light of the sun to illuminate the problems in such a way as to allow them to be seen for what they are. Citrine requires that thoughts precede actions; thinking the situation though will bring both understanding and the information needed to succeed. Ignoring this stage may cause anxiety and confusion.
Myth and History
During the Middle Ages, citrine was thought to carry the energy of the sun’s rays, and thus it was used as a remedy for people who’s energy and moods became depressive during the long winter months or during overcast weather.
