Soooo... the Solar Plexus and emotional sensitivity. I get a lot of questions about the Solar Plexus when it comes to emotional sensitivity.
One would think that people with an undefined Solar Plexus are the ones that are more sensitive to emotions, and the ones that have the Solar Plexus defined, are not that sensitive.
But actually, in reality (and according to Zeno), it's often the other way around, as people with an undefined Solar Plexus have often built thick walls around their emotions to protect themselves, lacking awareness in that department, which results in misinterpreting emotional information or not being able to deal with emotions.
While a defined Solar Plexus can be more stable, in less need of those protective walls, and therefore potentially more aware of the emotional information, creating some sort of higher sensitivity, being able to tap into emotions without getting destabilized by it.
So, it really depends on what kind of "sensitivity" you're talking about. Not being able to handle emotions because it's too overwhelming (taking in emotional energy from others while you're undefined, e.g.) is a different kind of sensitivity than deep emotional awareness and being able to tap into that information.
Where on that spectrum would you consider yourself? (Of course, this probably varies all the time.)
Also, when the Solar Plexus is defined, it's never only about emotional awareness. It is always in connection to another center (Heart = emotional support; Throat = emotional expression or acting on your emotions; Sacral = emotional intimacy, sexuality; Root = grounding emotional energy).
