Understanding the Solar Plexus Chakra/Manipura

The fire center that sits just below the breastbone, the solar plexus chakra (also known as the Manipura in Sanskrit) is the home of our ego and confidence. While ego can sometimes come with negative connotations it is important for our healthy ability to balance our needs, build boundaries, feel good about ourselves, and tap into the well of our warrior spirit. The word Manipura can be translated to ‘city of jewels’ which is a beautiful way of considering our precious self-worth and energy reserves.

As with all chakras, the solar plexus chakra has a huge impact on our overall health, inner wealth, and emotional balance. When our fire center is flickering with flame, we are full of ripe and potent energy, we have the endurance and skill to set out and achieve our goals, we are pumped with passion, and we have a strong sense of confidence that will carry us.

A blocked solar plexus chakra can make life a challenge. In the physical sense, those with a blockage here may have digestive issues or liver problems or constantly fatigued and weak. Emotionally you can have low self-esteem, feel worthless and directionless, and feel overwhelmed by the idea of putting thought into action. You may find yourself disinterested in life, in a constant state of guilt, and lost along the way. Don’t let yourself be a smoldering wreck, light a match and call on the warming light of these crystals to help ignite your solar plexus once more.
