Manipura Chakra and its Crystals
Kundalini rises one further level to Maniupura, our Solar Plexus Chakra. Its location is just above our navel.
This Chakra represents our will power, self esteem, energy, assertiveness and is not to be confused with aggression or the aggressor. This chakra gives us the confidence to speak up when we have an intuition or knowing that is strong within us. The Manipura Chakra also includes our digestive system, pancreas gland and muscles on the physical plane.
The element Fire best describes Manipura Chakra. Fire creates energy or fuel for the physical body sending signals to the different muscles to flex or contract. This fire element also aids our spiritual path, allowing us to be effective in a non-dominating role which creates self worth and power within. Manipura Chakra has also been called the sun centre, the sun lights the path that guides us through the maze of resistance and opposition. The Manipura Chakra provides us the keys to finding balance between our Dharma (Life Purpose) and Karma (Past Experience). Knowledge is Wisdom, provided that we learn from our experiences. With this chakra balanced we can learn and grow from our mistakes.
I also believe that particular crystals and minerals can help bring us towards our Dharma and bring out the warrior by balancing/healing the Manipura Chakra. The stones that I would suggest are Citrine and Calcite. Citrine is my “go to” stone when I want to act on my gut instinct and feel powerful from within.
You can learn much more in my workshops that I conduct regularly at different yoga studios, or from my home.
