Manipura - The Solar Plexus Chakra
Do you feel a victim of life, or do you emotionally overreact to situations? The solar plexus chakra meaning may explain…
There are a total of 7 main chakras within our energy, each relating to the emotional and physical being. Just below your sternum and above your navel lies your solar plexus chakra. This is believed to be the centre of your chakra energy and is associated with your ego, personality and identity – made up of self-worth, self-respect, self-belief and personal empowerment. The Sanskrit word which translates as ‘shining gem’ is ‘Manipura’, but is more commonly known as the solar plexus chakra. The colour represented by this area is a golden sunshine yellow, and the glow of the solar plexus chakra lights your energy with warmth and self-confidence. It is the core of the chakras, the third chakra which gives us willpower and strength in identity.
THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA MEANING
When someone needs to muster up courage to do something which perhaps makes them nervous, if they have to speak up for themselves or if they have to apply self-control or self-discipline, the solar plexus chakra is activated. The Solar plexus chakra meaning is of the ego, so it empowers you to stand tall, speak up and increase your awareness to protect yourself. The Manipura helps us to use our personal power for our highest good, consciously connecting with our energy so that we deal with things in a balanced manner. Understanding the solar plexus chakra meaning could be of major to benefit to people, especially those who may find it difficult to step into their personal power, or for those who tend to overreact to situations, showing that they perhaps have an excessive solar plexus chakra energy.
BLOCKED SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA VS EXCESSIVE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA ENERGY
Recognising that you have a blocked solar plexus chakra or have excessive energy in your solar plexus chakra, can be an enlightening experience. It can often shed some light on the reason as to why you may react under certain circumstances – especially when your personal power is challenged. A blocked solar plexus chakra will present symptoms such as people may be passive and inactive in life, they will have low confidence, self-belief and self-respect. They will consider themselves as victims, so live life with a pessimistic attitude, allowing others to treat them with little respect. People with a blocked solar plexus chakra will see life as a succession of disappointments and frustrations. Physical symptoms can be excessive weight, problems with liver, digestion, asthma and diabetes. People with excessive energy in their solar plexus chakra will easily overreact to situations, everything will be dealt with in a very emotional way and they are likely to get stressed out very easily. They may be viewed as strong willed go-getters but it’s without doubt that they will upset people along the way!
IDENTIFYING SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA OPENING SYMPTOMS
The energy of this chakra allows you to accept challenges in life, to move forward and to be active, rather than inactive or reactive. When the energy is imbalanced or blocked, and then is released - people may experience ‘solar plexus chakra opening symptoms’ as the blocked or excessive energy is released. These symptoms can present themselves in different ways, such as:
ANXIETY & FEAR – these are harboured emotions that are released, often giving symptoms such as upset stomach and body shakes.
ANGER – If you have internalised feelings of anger from past events, you may sense a surge of anger being released, this can be followed by a sudden feeling of nausea or sickness.
EMPOWERED – Unexpected and sudden feelings of importance, authority and intensity in your thoughts and words can be experienced.
HEALING THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
Bringing healing to the solar plexus chakra will help to balance the energy and release negative symptoms which may be presenting themselves physically, emotionally or in how we feel about our personal power. Solar plexus chakra meditation can be especially helpful and easy to do at home in your own time. The benefits of using solar plexus chakra meditation will help your body to gently relieve blockages so that you feel more empowered. Using solar plexus chakra crystals such as Pyrite, Orange Calcilte, Tiger’s Eye, Yellow Agate and Citrine will help to shift negative energy and create more positive energy within. It seems that yellow stones are the ideal solar plexus chakra crystals - matching the yellow sunshine colour of the chakra. Reiki healing will also be of benefit, a treatment which focuses on each independent chakra, making sure that there are no blockages and that negative energy is released.
