The Solar Plexus Chakra or MANIPURA

Manipura, in Sanskrit, means “City of Jewels”, but is also known as “place of gems”.  It is often pictured as a ten petal lotus of the color yellow or gold.  It is located between the navel and the bottom of your sternum.  The psychological function of the solar plexus is WILLPOWER, personal power, expansiveness and opinion.  The body parts that this chakra is related to are your digestive system, liver and gall bladder.  Spiritually, this chakra has to do with growth.  If this chakra is blocked, some things  you may exprience include: powerlessness, fear, anxiety, introversion, anger, shame, sense of victimization, digestive troubles, chronic fatigue and hypertension.

Think of Manipura as the sun in your body drawing in solar radiance as a type of prana (energy), and transducing into a form that enables the flow of vital energies throughout the physical body to be regulated.  The meanings of the ten petals of the solar plexus are said to be spiritual ignorance, thirst, jealousy, treachery, shame, fear, disgust, delusion, foolishness and sadness.  These all must be overcome in order to overcome the next chakras in order (heart, throat, third eye & crown chakras)!

Many health problems can occur if STRESS blocks your solar plexus chakra.  Things like Diabetes and Cancer are both a problem for this chakra, especially when stress is involved.  People can become edgy, depleted, depressed, insecure and fearful.  It is important to do things to keep your energy positive, and yourself open and balanced (see below).

      hi there. i do get a lot of spam also. I know, it’s a little annoying, but unfortunately I do not know of any plug in to help. I’m so new to this all. So, I just know how to run a basic site. I’m sorry, but GOOD LUCK!
