Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra

The 3rd Chakra: Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra

Manipura chakra The 3rd Chakra: Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra. Also Called As The Navel Chakra

Voice of Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra: “You are powerful and independent. You can accomplish tasks with grace and ease”

Introduction: Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra’s element is fire that radiates and transforms matter into energy, giving light and warmth. This Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra represents our "get-up-and-go," our action, our will, our vitality and our sense of personal power.

Location: Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is a yellow lotus of ten petals, located at the solar plexus area – the navel area - the place where one gets those butterfly feelings when we feel scared or powerless.

Color: Yellow
Element: Fire
Location: At the navel centre
Musical Note: F
Glandular Connection: Pancreas glands
Frequency: 500 -700 Hz
Objective: Relationship with yourself, personal power, self-esteem, freedom from shame, self-worth, personal thoughts and image of yourself

Description: The Sanskrit name of Solar Plexus Chakra, Manipura, means "lustrous gem." You can visualize it as a glowing yellow Sun, radiating through the center of your body. On the physical plane, Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra rules metabolism, the process whereby you turn food (matter) into energy and action. Digestion troubles, stomach troubles, hypoglycemia, diabetes, ulcers or addictions to stimulants (such as caffeine) are all related to imbalance of the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra. Weight problems may also be an indication that the body is not properly turning its matter into energy.

Is Your Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra Healthy or Blocked?

We can also assess the health of Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra by examining our body structure at this level: tight and hard stomachs, sunken diaphragms, or large potbellies are all indications of Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra excessiveness or deficiency. Examining your relationship to the properties of fire can give further clues to the nature of your Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra. Are you frequently cold, physically or emotionally? Do you get overheated, hot-tempered? Is your style quick and energetic, or slow and lethargic?

When the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is closed down, one may feel tired, afraid, shaky, quiet, or withdrawn. There is a fear of taking risks, confronting people or issues, taking charge, and with all this, a lack of energy. There may be too much seriousness and not enough laughter, ease, or fun, all of which help the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra open and relax. Pleasure, from the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra below, helps make the fire warm and easy; without it, our fires are cold and hard.

If the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is too open, then we have a kind of bully archetype-someone who always needs to be in control, to dominate, to seek power, prestige, ambition. As the lower Chakras in general are more ego -oriented, the third Chakra excess - Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra can make a person narcissistic or self-centered.

An appropriate concept for a healthy balance in this Chakra is the archetype of the warrior-standing strong, staying in touch with feelings, confronting only when appropriate and quietly maintaining a sense of power. A healthy Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra indicates that you can take on a task and complete it, take on a risk and not be bound by perfectionism, or act in the role of leadership without domination or self-aggrandizement. It follows that suppressed anger and depression are the psychological obstacle of this Chakra. It is important that you apologize not only for the one whom you have hurt, but also forgive yourself. If you torment yourself with anger and cannot let go, then the detoxification of the inputs does not happen and this affects the stomach, liver, intestine, spleen and pancreas.

When Energy Is Not Flowing Freely In Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra, some Of The Following Physical Symptoms Arise:

Balanced Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra :

Here you will find the archetype of the spiritual warrior with a purpose and the courage and conviction to be.

Overactive Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra Chakra:

The overactive Solar plexus chakra expresses itself in the tendency to be aggressive and the need to be in control at all times. People might have issues of uncontrollable anger, with a judgmental and superior attitude. Over-functioning Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra can also be expressed as workaholics, who like to rule through fear and intimidation.

Underactive Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra :

An under-active solar plexus chakra will have just the opposite effect on people's outlook on life. You will find issues about fear of rejection, and being overly concerned with what other people think. They will be highly sensitive to criticism from others with very low self-esteem, self-confidence and self-respect. A blocked Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra will generate feelings of insecurity, fear of being alone, with the need for constant reassurance. They will avoid the responsibility for making decisions and may have issues around trust and personal honour.

All the diseases associated with the digestive tracts ranging from chronic or acute indigestion (not wanting to keep something down), anorexia and bulimia, gastric or duodenal ulcers (can't stomach this), colon /intestinal problems, cancer of the stomach, intestines and pancreas, weight issues. (This is eating me up!). Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra issues also express themselves in the diseases of the liver, (which is responsible for detoxification of the body) such as liver infections, hepatitis and liver cancer, gallbladder cancer. The solar plexus chakra also influences the function of the pancreas, which can result in pancreatitis, diabetes, hypoglycemia or pancreatic cancer. Other areas affected range from arthritis, Chronic Fatigue (ME), to allergies and adrenal malfunction.

Healing of the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra :

The main issue around the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is how we have mastered the individuation process during childhood development. Energetic healing will assist in releasing anger in a responsible way, and releasing inhibitions through inner child healings and energetic restructuring of the chakra or of damaged organs in the solar region.

Process work which releases the inner critic from limiting belief patterns and self-sabotaging behaviour. Intention alignments help with setting of healthy goals and establishing health lifestyle changes.

If you feel you need a boost to your sense of empowerment, and want to tap into your warrior energy, then look no further than your Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra.

It is no accident that whenever someone doesn't treat us very well, saying or doing something that hurts us, we feel as if we have been punched in the stomach. Our Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra, governing our sense of boundaries and inner power, is located in the centre of our torso. It is the Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra that most of us feel physically. Have you ever not wanted to do something but are feeling pressured, or just known someone is lying to you, and felt a knot in this area? Your Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is literally reacting to the fact that someone is not respecting you and your truth, and on some level you are letting them affect your energy.

Balanced Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra

When Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is balanced, we feel much centered with a strong, sure sense of who we are. We have the courage to say "No thank you, that is not for me" when a social invitation, job or behaviour within a relationship doesn't feel right, without worrying about what the other person (or our family, society, colleagues etc) might think of us. We have the confidence to say yes when a new opportunity comes our way that is likely to take us out of our comfort zone. We aren't afraid to take leaps of faith, and even when we do feel fear we jump anyway, trusting that we will be okay.

Out Of Balanced Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra

When Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra is out of balance, we have a tendency to live life like a punching bag doll, with our emotions being a constant reaction to what other people do and don't do, say or don't say. We find it very hard to be assertive and make decisions, too often relying on the opinions of others. We regularly attract those who tell us what we 'should' do, and find ourselves in relationships where we play the passive role to a dominating partner.

Effects of a blocked Solar Plexus (Manipura) Chakra

Health-wise we may experience digestive and eating disorders, ulcers, issues with our stomach, liver, pancreas or gallbladder, hypoglycemia, diabetes, hypertension, muscular disorders, chronic fatigue or tenderness in solar plexus area. Any of these conditions can indicate that you don't feel like you have power over your life, and have developed a habit of giving it away.

Meditation Technique By Neeta Singhal

Neeta Singhal has developed a unique meditation technique which is called "Release meditation" based on Neti Neti Yog by Jagatguru Shri Adi Shankaracharya. In this technique, the fears are brought to surface and are then released completely from all aspects of life into a rotating vortex which is a black hole that destroys everything. "Facing a fear is bringing it into light and that enables us to release the fear", she says. This meditation style also involves playing the Gayatri mantra or resonance music in the background.
