Solar Plexus Chakra
Symbol: Flower with 10 petals
Element: Fire
Color: Yellow


The Sanskrit word for the solar plexus chakra is Manipura. Its center is the sense of self and the foundation is power and will.  This chakra connects us to our personal power, self-esteem and our drive to succeed.
The symbol of this energy center is the element of fire, which can purify self-doubt so we trust our gut feelings about people, places and situations.  Swami Saradananda summarizes the chakra by saying it “provides the transformational power for your body and mind to be able to process matter and energy” (Saradananda, 2011).
When clear, healed and balanced, this chakra uplifts your will-power to persevere through challenges to manifest goals.   If not aligned properly, low self-esteem, depression and lack of motivation increases.

This chakra is about being able to laugh, experiencing pleasure and creating harmony in life. It’s the energy center that supports our determination to achieve goals no matter what others think, co-creating with the Universe your own destiny.
