1. Solar plexus chakra: origin and meaning
Its name Manipura translates from Sanskrit as " brilliant gem " or " city of jewels " and is associated with the color yellow from the sun. It is known as the solar plexus chakra for being the center of personal strength and for its ability to manifest our self-confidence.
This chakra is located just above the navel and at the level of the stomach, which makes it the center of energy. That is why stimulating benefits are attributed to it, being able to promote good digestion and the elimination of toxins. In addition, the energy to which it is associated is fire when it is represented by the sun and that force that characterizes it.
Among the seven chakras, each of them represents a stage of learning related to different aspects of life and health. For this reason, it is of great importance to have them balanced, since in the case of Manipura, their blockage will cause us fear, insecurity, apathy and digestive difficulties. There are many who explain how to open it and some options include yoga, meditation or aromatherapy.
Symptoms such as impulsive doubt, indigestion, concentration problems or irritability will make us discover if we have it blocked.
2. Properties of the solar plexus chakra
In personal development, this chakra helps us in the ability to make decisions and the way in which we interact with the rest. It is also related to vitality and self-confidence that will allow us to live happier and better face problems.
