Your Solar Plexus Chakra and Music

If you missed my post about why I’m writing about these, check that out here. Otherwise, let’s get started! Your Solar Plexus Chakra is located right under your heart chakra. I used to confuse this one with the Sacral Chakra often. I just remember Sacral as “Second,” which is a weird association but it works for me.
