YELLOW governs the Solar Plexus Chakra, which acts as the ‘brain centre’ to the nervous system. This chakra is located in the stomach area and the middle of the back, and is linked to the stomach, liver, skin, large intestine, muscular system and the solar plexus area.

The Solar Plexus Chakra is connected with our identity and the concept of ‘Self’.
