Solar Plexus Chakra: Manipura

The Solar Plexus: The Energetic Center of Power, Wisdom, and Identity

 

The Solar plexus chakra represents our independence, figuring out who we are. We take this independence and enter into our willpower. The will to live and reach our aspirations in life. The main organ system of this chakra is the digestive system. The digestive system is wise; it takes whatever we put into it and knows when to take and when to throw away. There’s fire in belly to digest life’s experiences, the fuel to drive us forward.

There are three main aspects to the Solar Plexus Chakra
  1. Wisdom. One of the main organ systems of the Solar Plexus Chakra is the digestive system. This affects us in the integration of information. The digestive system is wise- it takes whatever we put into it and knows when to take and when to let go. Connecting to this energy center allows us to connect to the wisdom of ourselves, our decision making process, too.
  2. Power. This is our center of power. It is important to keep our power balanced. To not give our power away too much, but to also not over power and seek to control many things in our life.
  3. Identity. A part of balancing our sense of power is to find and accept who we are as a person. Maintaining our sense of identity is important to keep up the work of decision making.
The solar plexus is the heart of deep belly laughter, warmth, ease and vitality from service

You Can Heal Yourself

It’s not yoga that heals you. It’s not essential oils that heal you. It’s not medicine or any other thing. It’s the experiences that heals. It’s not the mind that takes a drug and then it’s healed, it’s healed from exposure to new perspectives. As we choose these new, healthy, more balanced things in our lives– we become that.

It’s your body that heals itself when it’s awakening. It’s your mind that heals itself when it’s changing perception. Magic happens when we open ourselves up to possibilities and experiences. Even if those experiences hurt– it’s still healing. It’s still growing.

Change is always constant– how about we choose what we change into, instead of going with the default.

I am committed to change for the better!

Emotional Healing Through Yoga

On the last day of my yoga teacher training, we gave our final presentations. In the first half, we presented a yoga sequence. For the second half, we talked about our experiences through the teacher training. I was the last one to present– I was so anxious about presenting, everyone before me had gone and done a fabulous job. After I had started presenting, I was crying and way too nervous, I couldn’t follow my notes. It was embarrassing! I couldn’t believe I couldn’t even get through my presentation without having a hard time. I was never good at speaking in front of people, and I was living in my fear with everyone watching me– Crying in front of a group of people. Continue reading “Emotional Healing Through Yoga”

Pranayama

When did you last take a nice, full breath?

One of the fastest ways to shift your energy state is by using the breath. Breathing more fully, deeply, and consciously brings much benefit into our lives. The word pranayama alludes to breathwork– breathing using certain patterns and techniques to help the prana to flow through the body. Using the breath helps us to connect our ethereal body to our physical body. The breath itself invites in prana– the vital life force energy.

Breathe in love, Exhale negativity

How to Save Yourself

Last week, I was in a slump for a few days. I was not in the love vibration during this time, nowhere even close to it. I had fallen into patterns of fear and holding resentment towards nearly every area of my life. It was too exhausting to leave my room at times, and I was crying most of the day. How could I let myself get to this point? I thought I was strong, I knew how to get my vibration higher, but I suddenly had no motivation to do so. I thought I could not fall as far as I did. But I let myself fall. My mind wanted to stay in the loops and cycles of fear. How could I come back to love? How could I come back to that light-hearted feeling I once knew so well?

Exploring the Chakras

The chakras are known as energy “spirals” or “disks”. These energy centers interact with the physical body and they work to feed positive energy and dispose of unwanted energy. The Chakra vitality contributes to the prevention of illnesses, and reflects the overall wellness of the individual.

Chakras and Consciousness

The energy of the seven main chakras reflect states or levels of consciousness, your mindset, and your emotions. The lower chakras reflect the lower vibrations and states of consciousness, while the higher chakras reflect the higher states of consciousness. Continue reading “Exploring the Chakras”

All is Well

Words from Louise Hay, from her book “You Can Heal Your Life.”

“In the infinity of life, where I am,

all is perfect, whole, and complete.

I believe in a power greater than I am that flows within me,

every moment of every day. I open myself to the wisdom within,

knowing that there is only one Intelligence in this universe.

Out of this one intelligence comes all the answers,

all the solutions, all the healings, all of the new creations.

I trust this power and Intelligence,

knowing whatever I need is revealed to me,

and whatever I need comes to me in

the right time, space and sequence.

All is well in my world.”
