Chakras & New Year’s Resolutions – What’s the Link?
Chakras are energy centers of our body that govern our physical, emotional, and mental health.
An uninterrupted flow of life force energy (prana) runs through the seven primary chakras resulting in manifestation, abundance, health, and wellbeing.
And so, with that in mind, is it even a surprise that chakras influence our motivation levels to follow through on our resolutions? Each chakra is associated with a specific food, color, frequency, sound, crystal, and so much more.
More importantly, each chakra has a specific dominant behavioral trait.

Solar Plexus Chakra & Resolutions
The Solar Plexus, or the Manipura Chakra, glows bright yellow like the sun. Located in our belly region, this chakra is the center of our personal power. It helps us unleash our determination and drive to crush our goals.
The Solar Plexus chakra is associated with the element of fire. We hold all five elements of nature within us. At will, we can embody traits of these elements in our thoughts, emotions, and personality.
Fire typically is associated will power, drive, ambition, and other masculine qualities.
With this chakra in good health, we are motivated to become better versions of ourselves. Our seemingly challenging resolutions become do-able tasks. We can plan and execute with effortless ease.
An energetic imbalance in the Solar Plexus chakra is why people ditch their resolutions by the time spring of each year rolls in.
A not-so-happy Solar Plexus chakra shows up as:
- Lack of ambition, determination
- Lack of focus
- Self-doubt, second-guessing one-self
- Low confidence & self-esteem
- Unable to complete a task at hand.
- Easily disappointed by challenges.
- Too laid-back & chilled-out
Healing the Solar Plexus Chakra
Releasing energetic blocks in this chakra can promote the free flow of prana through this region. Multiple holistic tools to boost chakra health exist; a few of them are listed here:
- Consume yellow foods such as yellow peppers, mango, ginger, turmeric, etc.
- Surround yourself with crystals such as citrine.
- Harness the energy of fire to invoke power into your being.
- Use Solar Plexus chakra affirmations.

Root Chakra & Resolutions
The Root chakra, or Muladhara Chakra, is located at our tail bone and forms the very foundation of our entire human experience. When this chakra is in good health, we feel physically, emotionally, and financially safe.
A strong foundation with this chakra is vital for us to begin thinking of creating SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Bound) goals.
A misaligned Root chakra is where the ego thrives. Goals and resolutions made from an ego-driven mind fundamentally do not feel true to our higher self.
Societal conditioning often clouds our ability to set goals aligned with our purpose in life. The exercise, diet, career, or relationship goals we set for ourselves from an ego-perspective are not sustainable in the long term. It ends up feeling like an uphill battle.
Set yourself up for success by…
- Stepping outside your ego.
- Connecting with your true self.
- Identifying what resolutions are in alignment with your soul purpose.
A not-so-happy-root chakra (in the context of goal setting) shows up as:
- Chronic fatigue
- No desire to set goals
- A general all-pervasive lack of motivation in all aspects of life.
- Acting from the ego
- Lack of clarity for what goals to focus on.
- Seeking external validation when set goals are achieved.
Healing the Root Chakra
- Get grounded
- Heal your inner child.
- Shadow work
- Eating red foods like raspberries, beetroots, and vegetables that grow in the soil can heal the Root chakra.
- Starting your morning with Root Chakra affirmations.
