Manipura - Solar Plexus Chakra

Updated: Jul 12




Manipura is the third chakra and is connected to the element of fire, representing strength, vitality and your personal power. It is represented by the colour yellow and is physically situated between the navel and the sternum within the body.


When the solar plexus chakra is out of alignment, physical ailments to do with the digestive system, gall bladder, liver, adrenals and mid back can manifest, On an emotional level it can effect our self esteem, and feeling powerless.


Some of the ways to assist bringing your Solar Plexus Chakra back into alignment is to


Wear Yellow


Eat yellow foods


Drink lemon water or lemongrass and ginger tea


Spend time in the sun


Carry crystals which are yellow, such as citrine, calcite, tigers eye, yellow topaz, pyrite and sunstone.


Essential oils of lemongrass, ginger, juniper berry & grapefruit can be diffused or massaged on the abdomen area to assist with digestion.


Dancing or any movements which build fire in the body.


Breathwork such as Kapalabhati pranayama or breath of fire, is a favourite of mine, as well as yoga postures which aid digestion and of course sun salutations. I also like to apply the Manipura - Solar Plexus Chakra perfume and the Invigorating Body Lotion when I feel I need assistance with this chakra.


You can also spend some time in meditation igniting the fire within. We need the fire within to work through our digestive system, adrenals, and to give us the momentum and power to be active in our lives. While we need the fire to burn for forward movement, we also must balance the energy so that we don't burn out. When meditating on this centre visualise yellow light and affirm, I am strong, powerful & confident, I am pure, positive energy. I believe in myself. I stand in my personal power. Allow that yellow light to radiate out from your solar plexus and into your world.💛
