The third chakra Manipura and GemstonesEmpty

Manipura (Sanskrit for brilliant jewel) - The third chakra

Manipura, also called the Solar Plexus Chakra or Navel Chakra, is located just above the navel. This chakra can be seen as the center of energy, here the energy coming from heaven and earth is combined and divided into the body and the aura. Strong activity in this chakra indicates a large aura and people with a lot of energy, a weak activity indicates lethargy and a small aura.

From this center of energy we can get the strength with which we can shape our lives. This chakra is important with regard to our will power and the emotions we need to make our life plans.

People with an posture in which they push the solar plexus chakra forward have a strong will and radiate power. Contrary, it shows people who do not want to stand up and have a weak will.

Self-pity, jealousy, aggression and the perverted exercise of power are possible consequences of an imbalance in the navel chakra. In addition, little activity in this chakra can lead to detachment or a victim mentality. A lot of activity can lead to an urge to dominate, always want to be right, stubbornness, arrogance and having strong ambitions.

The planet that is connected to the Solar Plexus is Mars, but the sun also has a strong bond with this chakra. The element is fire and the color of the chakra is yellow. Corresponding constellations are the lion and the ram and the corresponding animal is the ram.
