Your Manipura/Solar Plexus Chakra Healing Guide

There’s been a lot of talks lately about chakras, chakra healing, and chakra balancing. But, before we get into how to balance the chakras, we need to first understand what they are, what they symbolize, and how they affect our mind, body, and life. This introduction covers it all!

The chakras are a component of the subtle body, also known as the energy body. It is the portion of the body that we cannot see or touch yet can always feel. It is the part of us that beats our hearts, the part of us that has gut instincts, and the energy inside us that connects, moves, and defines our being.

The seven chakras are the body’s primary energy centers. Unblocking or healing our chakras refers to the idea that when all of our chakras are open, energy can flow freely through them and there is harmony between the body, mind, and soul.

Each chakra emits a distinct color and energy, and each corresponds to a gland in the physical body. Because each chakra is associated with unique spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical parts of our being, their blocking or dysfunction might cause physical, psychological, and emotional problems. Conscious awareness and balance of these energy centers, on the other hand, are said to result in happiness and good health.

The concept of chakras was initially conceived thousands of years ago in ancient India, and the oldest evidence of chakras may be found in the Vedas. They are the earliest known texts of Hinduism and the oldest known written Sanskrit, dating back to 1500–500 BCE. The Upanishads (part of the Vedas) include evidence of chakra theories, which influenced the spirituality of Hinduism, Buddhism, and other ancient eastern faiths.

After we’ve evolved beyond the physical-emotional necessities of survival and self-preservation of the first chakra, Muladhara, the second chakra is where Prana is awakened and we begin to experience the world consciously. The Root Chakra is an unconscious state of being, while the Sacral Chakra allows us to become aware of our surroundings. The Manipura/Solar Plexus Chakra is the seat of your ego as well as the source of your energy and will. It is in charge of your life choices, which mirror the directions in which your energy flows.

This chakra is the foundation of your personality and sense of self. When balanced, it allows authenticity to blossom and enables your True Self to shine forth. It allows you to face your fears, manage your thoughts, and make conscious decisions.

This chakra also oversees the digestive system and its organs. Because the fire element is associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, it plays an important function in digestion. And it is a center for not just physical but also the metaphorical digestion of thoughts, emotions, and events in our life. Furthermore, it is linked to one of life’s most important concerns: our feeling of purpose.

Solar Plexus Chakra Attributes

Sanskrit Name: Manipura (“City of Jewels”; sometimes translated as “Lustrous Gem”).

Meaning: The Solar Plexus Chakra is the vitality center. It regulates our energy balance to maintain and enhance our health. This Chakra attracts Prana from the Cosmos, much like a magnet. This chakra governs the function of the pancreas and digestive organs as the seat of digestive fire.

Location: It is located in the upper abdomen, two inches above the navel.

Element: Fire is the element linked with the Solar Plexus Chakra. It is a symbol of the Sun’s energy. Fire handles your inner strength, vigor, ego, willpower, endurance, and inner power. From it comes your drive to get things done and maintain your sense of self.

Qualities: Personal strength, knowledge, and understanding. It aids in the development of a strong sense of self, the establishment of personal boundaries, and the development of self-esteem and willpower. This chakra gives you the power to influence your life and the world around you.

Color: Yellow. It is fiery, just like the sun. It exhibits confidence, reliability, responsibility, purposefulness, and motivation.

Color Psychology: Yellow is the color associated with the Manipura Chakra. This color represents vitality, intelligence, and a person’s relationship with the Sun and Fire. Yellow is often associated with youth, fresh beginnings, birth, and rebirth. Yellow is also associated with intelligence and wisdom. The color attracts those who are engaged in intellectual pursuits.

Sensory: Eyesight (Perception)

Endocrine Gland: The pancreas and the outer adrenal glands, the adrenal cortex.

Organs: Stomach, intestines, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, and spleen.

Developmental Stage: It forms when we are between the ages of 15–21 and gains an understanding of who we really are, what we really want, and what our purpose is.

Balanced/Flowing Energy: A person with a balanced Solar Plexus Chakra emanates confidence (without being arrogant), is self-motivated, and has a feeling of purpose. It gives you judgment clarity, self-assurance, confidence, self-discipline, and independence.

Imbalanced: When the Solar Plexus Chakra is imbalanced, you may feel low self-esteem, lack of self-trust, and a weak will. You can suffer from sadness, have difficulty making decisions, and may have anger or control issues.

Psychological Symptoms of Blockage: Excessive fire and energy in the Solar Plexus Chakra may cause impulsive responses like anger and violence, which are signs of a blocked chakra. Some more psychological symptoms include doubt and mistrust of others, as well as a great deal of anxiety about what others may think of you. Some individuals may struggle with poor self-esteem and want constant validation and praise from others. This imbalance may cause you to form unhealthy bonds with the people in your life.

Physical Symptoms of Blockage: You might feel bloated and nauseous and may also experience cramping. It might also seem like you are struggling to remember things. You can also experience ulcers or heartburn when this chakra is blocked. Problems with the pancreas, diabetes, stress-related illnesses, blood pressure issues, and digestive problems to do with the ‘digestive fire’ or Agni are some more signs.

Benefits of Solar Plexus Chakra Balancing

The specific benefits of balancing the Solar Plexus Chakra will vary depending on where you are in the healing process. Regardless of where you’re starting from, completing inner work may help you balance your chakra or chakras. The Solar Plexus is your energy hub, radiating vital prana, which is the complete quantity of energy manifested in this universe throughout your entire body.

People with a healthy Solar Plexus Chakra are impulsive and uninhibited, with great personal strength and high regard for themselves and others. These individuals possess a high level of self-confidence and self-esteem. Here you will find the archetype of the spiritual warrior with a purpose and the courage and conviction to be.

The Solar Plexus Chakra symbolizes our feelings of self-worth, personal power, mental strength, and spiritual development. We feel weak and unworthy when this chakra is out of balance. As a result, a balanced Solar Plexus Chakra will help you reclaim your sense of core and wholeness. You’ll unlock your latent potential and embrace and recognize the viewpoints and opinions of others. You’ll be working on your spiritual growth as well.

The following are the most significant benefits of a healthy Solar Plexus Chakra:

  • Determination
  • Self-confidence
  • Self-esteem
  • Positive thinking
  • A balanced approach to emotion management
  • Setting boundaries
  • Maintaining positive social interactions

Solar Plexus Chakra Balancing

We lack confidence, stamina, motivation, and direction when Manipura is out of balance. An overactive Manipura Chakra, on the other hand, manifests as aggressive behavior, rage, and a need for sedatives.

But the good news is that we can boost the functioning of our chakras, both mentally and physically. We can control how energy moves through these regions, which is good for our overall well-being. Chakra balancing and alignment is a frequent, and sometimes daily, activity to explore. But how can one bring the Solar Plexus Chakra back into balance?

Problems with the Solar Plexus Chakra may be addressed by taking a break from your daily chores and understanding the hurdles in your life. Yoga, pranayamas, visualization, mantras, meditation, aromatherapy, and other similar practices may help to maintain the vitality of your Solar Plexus Chakra.
