Manipura ~ Our Solar Plexus Chakra
Updated: Jun 27, 2019
The Solar Plexus Chakra, Manipura, is situated between the ribcage & navel. This is where our personality is shaped, our vitality is reinforced, and our purpose is discovered. Manipura regulates our individual energy & power. The color of the Solar Plexus Chakra is Yellow which helps focus out thought processes in order to make appropriate decisions, organize our lives by clarifying our understandings, and also brings a lightness to our daily lives. Our physical connection to this chakra is found in our lower back, stomach, digestive system, & nervous system. The diaphragm is located at the Solar Plexus Chakra, so when we are consumed by fear or tension, we have a difficult time breathing deeply. We are restricted. Our sense of "being" is born here. Not only is our personal power manifested in Manipura, but also our intellect.
Here we address our concerns with personal identity, personality, personal power & will, vitally, self-worth, social identity, attitudes, self-confidence.
In Balance: we have a feeling of wholeness, harmony, & inner tranquility. Our tolerance for not only others, but also ourselves, comes easily. We are balanced in our spirituality & physicality. When we have a strong sense of personal power, we have self-respect & a renewed appreciation for those we allow to be a part of our lives.
Out of Balance: we cannot trust the natural ebb & flow of life. We manifest a need to control everything which can make our home life uncomfortable or our office a tense place to work. Our materialistic desires dominate our lives which generates a necessity for material security. We have a tendency to become perfectionists & workaholics, therefore, we get burnt out.
