Solar Plexus Chakra
The #SolarPlexusChakra is called the #ManipuraChakra in Sanskrit. In fact, it is also known as the navel center. The element fire, the colour yellow, and the sense of sight are all associated with it. It helps purify the wishes and desires of the lower chakras. Your sense of power, abundance, strength, wisdom, energy, and self-assertion are also affected by it. It contributes to your personality and helps you feel comfortable with yourself. It also helps shape how you see your life and those around you.

A balanced solar plexus chakra promotes feelings of joy and inner richness. There's a high level of trust in yourself and you know your worth. There is harmony within yourself and with your place in life. You accept yourself as the radiant being that you are. The light within you is so strong that it protects you from negative energies.
If your Solar Plexus Chakra is unbalanced, you may feel that you want to take control of your world, both internal and external. You seek recognition and affirmation from others. You perceive many obstacles to your goals and dreams. You may struggle with everyday tasks.
-I honour the power within me
-I follow through with my will
-My inner fire burns through blocks and fears
-My will and divine will are aligned
-I know my purpose
-I do it easily and effortlessly
Solar Plexus Meditation
Find a comfortable seat. Take a few slow, deep breaths to connect to yourself.
As you continue to Inhale and Exhale naturally, turn your inward gaze to your solar plexus chakra in your navel center. Imagine it turning left (if you're female and right if you're male).
As it spins, allow it to spark a beautiful, cleansing golden fire.
Allow this fire to grow inside of you.
Allow it to transform you, burning anything inside of you that is no longer needed or no longer serves your highest good.
The fire is working as your highest self and removing obstacles from your path.
Though it may be hard to part with old patterns or connections, trust in the higher good and allow yourself to be cleansed and renewed.
Take a few more breathes here and when you're ready start to open your eyes and return back to your physical space.
