The most effective way to add the power of yellow or correct a balance in the 3rd Chakra is thru adding natural yellow crystals and gemstones to your everyday wardrobe so they are close to you for several hours at a time and touching your skin, (the pulse points: ears, wrists, ankles, and neckline) and thus effecting your aura and Solar Plexus Chakra. This is much more effective than carrying stones in your purse or pocket, or placing them in your environment. For direct healing, the jewellery can be placed on the Solar Plexus Chakra itself.
