Solar Plexus 101
The Manipura, or solar plexus chakra, is the third chakra of the energetic system, and is located above the navel. The solar plexus chakra is the body's battery pack; this is where energy is stored and exerted from; this chakra rules willpower, personal identity, ego and confidence. The solar plexus chakra is associated with the fire element, the color yellow, and the mantra RAM. The adrenal gland, pancreas, upper intestines, digestive system and the nervous system are all ruled by the solar plexus chakra. Signs of an unbalanced solar plexus chakra include inflated ego or extreme lack of confidence, controlling or manipulative behavior, and the inability to express one's authentic personality. Signs of a healthy solar plexus chakra include a balanced ego, confidence, expression of individuality and fortitude. Neutralize extreme energies within the solar plexus by introducing balance with some of our favorite solar plexus healing stones!
