The over active third chakra can be a strain on interpersonal relationships. When someone is critical and unable to compromise it is hard to maintain healthy friendships or intimate relationships which require agreement, and allowing others to enter into your personal space.

This may also bring up feelings of fear and depression that could impact a person’s daily life. He/she may have trouble getting things done, and be uncomfortable with change and new things. He/she may also doubt and mistrust those around them. A person with an underactive solar plexus chakra seems to go on auto pilot and avoid feelings and challenges.
