Today let us understand the third chakra – Solar Plexus or Manipura Chakra.
I am sharing various aspects of the solar plexus chakra, and pointers to find if your solar plexus chakra is imbalanced & couple of modalities you can opt to balance your chakras. I want you to do a simple exercise at the end of this post.
Physical Location – Upper abdomen in the stomach area, above the navel
Physical Characteristics – Digestive system – liver, stomach, spleen, pancreas, gall bladder
Non-Physical Characteristics – will power, decision making, confidence, clarity of thoughts, personality, self worth, self esteem, feeding right direction in life, self image
What Happens When This Chakra Is Balanced – confidence, good self esteem, strong personality, healthy ego, decisiveness, feeling in control of life & destiny, good intellect, healthy self image, healthy digestive system, healthy skin & eyes, good metabolism
What Happens When This Chakra Is Imbalanced (Blocked or Over Stimulated) – excessive control & authority over people around you, low self esteem, low confidence, feeling of helplessness, insecurities in career, lack of clear direction or ambition, judgemental, intolerant, irritable, low self drive, weak will, digestive issues, ulcers, jaundice, diabetes, gall stones, gas, weakness
Associated Element (Panch Tatva) – Fire
Associated Color To Meditate – Visualize the color Yellow at the location of this chakra & concentrate. You may also chant the beej mantra of this chakra.
Beej Mantra To Meditate – Sounds create vibrations in the body, and these vibrations help the cells work together in synchronistic harmony. The mantra sound that corresponds to the Solar Plexus chakra is RAM.
