I wrote last week about taking back my POWER and today I’m talking to you about the chakra that deals with just that. If you haven’t been reading the past couple of days you can read about the Root Chakra and the Sacral Chakra, but now it’s the Solar Plexus that we’re going to be learning about. A little catch up if you’re reading for the first time today.
Manipura or The Solar Plexus Chakra
The color of Manipura is yellow. The key issues governed by Manipura are personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex. Physically, the 3rd Chakra is located directly above your navel and governs digestion while mentally it governs personal power, emotionally it manages expansiveness, and spiritually, all matters of growth.
When your 3rd Chakra is balanced you trust yourself and take full responsibility for your life. You feel a strong sense of self worth and positive self value. A balanced Solar Plexus Chakra ensures your personal freedom to direct your spirit to realize your highest potential. You are the creator of your reality and manifest easily all that you desire into the physical world.
An 3rd Chakra that is unbalanced can manifest itself an inability to take responsibility for yourself and your life experiences. You may lack self control, and blame and criticize others for your problems.
The third chakra correlates to in the body to the upper abdomen, rib cage, lower thoracic to 2nd lumbar, pancreas, liver, spleen, kidney, adrenals, small intestines, stomach
Healing Aromas and Essential Oils
For nourishing and balancing the 7 Major chakras, include: Lavender and the Holy Oils – Frankincense, Myrrh, Sandalwood and Spikenard. And specifically for the 3rd Chakra you can inhale a pure essential oil or blend that is sweet, sour, earthy, woody, and restorative. Aromas like Sandalwood, Myrrh, Atlas Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang, Petitgrain, Vetiver, Lemon, Patchouli and Helichrysum.
Rock IT! (crystals too)
For chakra balancing your 3rd chakra use Emerald, Citrine, Tiger’s Eye, Moss Agate
Meditation and Blessing
Sit quietly and speak or think “I am a powerful creator of my reality and I love it.” Breathe out any residual resistance you may feel to living and expressing your truth. Affirm once more, “I love and honor myself and all of life.”
You are fierce…You ARE POWERFUL! Sending you so much love and power this fall weekend.
I can see you GETTIN’ FIERCE!
