The Sanskrit name for the Solar Plexus chakra is “Manipura”, and means “city of jewels” or “seat of gems”. This chakra is connected with the element of fire and has a connection with the sun, heat, the energy of light and all forms of power.
The location of the third chakra is between the navel and the lower part of the chest, at the solar plexus level connected to the digestive system as well, that’s why it’s often referred as the “solar plexus chakra”.
If your energies are more dominant in your Manipura you are the doer in the world, you want to do things: maybe you are a business man, a politician, something where a lot a doing is needed. This energy center, connects us with the energy to take action, moves the direction in life in order to realize desires and intentions and in that way we are able to develop our personal power.
The third chakra expects you to leave some kind of a name behind, some kind of contribution that you have made for the society so people will remember you.
When it is open, you experience your life supporting you in your expression. Your energies are creating your physical experience.
The color of this particular chakra is golden yellow. It is wearing the color of the sun.
If the power center is weak or closed, you are going to experience struggle, you will be more passive and inactive, people will be able to control you, you won’t say what you want, you won’t feel self-confident, you will feel as your life is boring and will end up doing nothing at times.
The expression of the chakra may vary from person to person and from place to place.
You have different experiences with your chakras in different environments. With people you love your center may be open but if you have a job it may close you down if you don’t feel comfortable expressing your power there. So you power center may turn on and turn off for you. The power of your peace is making a difference in this world. The people benefit from the beautiful peaceful energy.
The color of this particular chakra is golden yellow. It is wearing the color of the sun. Your power center can open just with being exposed on the sun getting the warmth and the radiance of the sun.
Because the Fire is the element for the Solar Plexus chakra, taking a walk in the sun during day time, sitting in front of a camp fire as well, can be very helpful one to unblock and balance this chakra.
When we are open from inside we are able intuitively to listen and feel to what our chakras tells us and with it to know our inner power. Being confident, knowing our own real strength, being responsible and reliable is all what the Solar plexus includes in us as powerful message.
Spending time with our self helps our attention to get close enough with the core of our Being and from there we start to know and feel our inner strength.
The most beautiful journey is the journey that we take inside. To discover our own Self means to melt in the presence of our inner Heart and it is the greatest joy that a human being can ever experience.
