Citrine, the Sun Centre.

There is much to be obtained while carrying this Solar Plexus Chakra Stone.  This Particular Chakra is called Manipura and is related to the element Fire and deals with lighting up the body’s defences and employment of energies in all facets of our lives.

Let’s first describe the difference between manufactured Citrine and Natural Citrine.  This stone is of the quartz family and is formed naturally when amethyst is left in the Earth at great depths (pressure) and high temperatures.  Amethyst will turn into Citrine naturally, but humans are impatient, and Natural Citrine is difficult to mine as it is deeper within the earth and less abundant overall.  Although this manufactured method is accepted in the gem industry; we can place amethyst inside a kiln at a certain temperature and time, it will come out as Citrine.  Here are a couple of photos of the man-made Citrine and natural Citrine, notice the distinct orange colour.

Many have asked me if the un-natural Citrine has the same properties as natural Citrine.  My instinct is yes it does, but like anything forced to become something ahead of its time, it does it unwillingly.  I always suggest when purchasing crystals always choose natural stones made by Mother Nature in her own time.

Citrine is the stone of abundance, raises our self-esteem and is a powerful alignment stone guiding us towards our Higher Self.  It is known to enhance the body’s defences by increasing your healing energy capabilities.  This stone gives us hope and warmth by lighting our Manipura Chakra or our “Sun Centre” of our bodies.

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.
