What does the Solar Plexus or Manipura Chakra govern?
The Chakra is located around the navel in the area of the solar plexus and below the rib cage. It is extremely crucial for the solar plexus chakra to be balanced in order to feel a strong sense of purpose & personal power, be self-confident, stay motivated, set intentions and going beyond anger issues to a more peaceful space. The word Manipura breaks down into two Sanskrit words: “Mani” meaning gem and “Pura” meaning city. The gem creates inner illumination and gives us the power to see beyond the ordinary realm, Solar Plexus is the engine which empowers our city (mind and body) to see beyond the visible.
This Chakra governs our energy centre and radiates vital life energy (prana) throughout our entire body. The energy of this chakra keeps your will power high, uplifts your ability to achieve, boosts self-confidence, addresses raw emotions & inculcates self-discipline. It is the centre of transformation as the “Agni” or the sacred fire rests here. The fiery aspect of this chakra makes it the seat of your unique identity, where you are free to project your power & charisma into the world. Just as fire transforms solids into liquids and liquids into gas, the inner fire transforms unconscious into conscious awareness. Imbalances in the solar plexus chakra may manifest in the form of lack of self-worth, being excessively competitive, controlling behaviour, intolerance, aggression, self-criticism, lack of confidence, shame and digestive or intestinal issues.
By now you must have gauged that most of the issue that creates an imbalance is emotional rather than physical. Our sense of smell is on the best tools to assist with reprogramming our minds as it is beyond the barrier of perceptions and the conscious mind.
