The third chakra is called the solar plexus chakra (or Manipura in Sanskrit) and is located in the upper abdomen in the stomach area (just below the breast bone)

The color associated with the third chakra is YELLOW.

 

The solar plexus chakra is the source of your personal power and represents your ability to be confident and in control of your life and governs self-esteem, warrior energy, and the power of transformation. 

 

When the third chakra is blocked, for example, if you are dealing with doubts, lack of direction or rejection, you might experience irritable bowel problems, binge eating, overweight or underweight issues, stomach ulcers, and reflux problems.

 

On an emotional level, you may feel depressed with low self-esteem and self-worth. Or you may lack confidence and feel unable to focus and organize your life.

 

Here are some simple, yet potent ways, to rebalance the solar plexus chakra.

 

Essential oils (as mentioned in the other emails) are amazing tools for chakra healing. They can be used while meditating or doing yoga or as aromatherapy in an oil diffuser or incense sticks.

 

Citrusy essential oils like orange and grapefruit are great for healing the solar plexus chakra, as well as chamomile, mint and ginger oils.

 

The solar plexus chakra is associated with the sun and fire, so just by getting outside you can heal your chakra! Meditating or doing yoga outdoors on sunny days will also maximize your healing practice or simply doing a little sunbathing will help open your solar plexus chakra.

 

A great mantra for the solar plexus chakra is

“I choose to let go because it is the most empowering choice I have.”

 

Chanting of the mantra "RUM" will also help the natural flow of the chakra.

 

Meditation
Imagine a yellow ball of light in the solar plexus region and with each breath feel the ball of light expand and radiate within.

 

Natural WILD GRACE Perfume
The third chakra is associated with the fire element. You may find balance with our PITTA perfume which is formulated with cooling and soothing essential oils. Apply directly on your solar plexus region, and on your adrenals.

 

There you have it, all you need to know to help you gain your power back with grace and radiance.

 

In love & light,

Kim
