Welcome to your Chakra Yoga Flow to Cleanse your Solar Plexus Chakra.
The solar plexus chakra, manipura, is the third energy center in your chakra system. It’s your personal power, your fiery nature, your ability to take action, and transform your thoughts and desires into reality.
Because of the solar plexus’s powerful, fiery nature it is a masculine, yang energy center, however it’s sandwiched between two yin, feminine energy centers (the sacral and the heart) that can help manage and tame your personal flame. Let’s look at the solar plexus basics.
Solar Plexus Chakra Basics
- Sanskrit – manipura
- Location – upper abdomen, between navel and sternum
- Element is fire
- Color is yellow
- Bija mantra – RAM
- Activity doing
- Ego identity
- Demon is shame
- Right to take action
- Purpose – personal power, will, mastery, transformation
- Goals – strength, discipline or mastery, self-esteem, aligned action, removing obstacles with grace and ease
Your solar plexus chakra is your ability to get shit done, but there’s a caveat.
Because of the fire element, because of the power, because of the related activity (doing), because of the demon (shame), because of the ego identity, this chakra can be very slippery. And it’s especially slippery in our current culture that favors success and individualization over contentment and community.
You can easily get caught doing, doing, doing, finding your worthiness through productivity, feeling ashamed when you’re not performing, which leads to you forgetting that relationships and connection matter, playfulness and pleasure matter, and your physical health and wellbeing matter.
What I’m describing here is someone with an excess solar plexus chakra (oh hai, that’s me), but what if you’re deficient here? What if you’re someone who struggles with accessing their personal power? What if you’re afraid to step into your power because the demon of shame rules here?
There’s medicine here for you too.
The solar plexus feeds on purposeful, productive action that naturally builds a well of self-esteem and confidence. With every small win, your solar plexus is strengthened and your personal flame is enlivened.
