Welcome to Day 3 of #awakenyourchakras .
After we have passed through the levels of unconscious and subconscious – the Mūlādhāra Chakra and the Svādishthāna Chakra – our consciousness reaches the third level, the Manipūra Chakra.
The position of the Manipūra Chakra is in the middle of the abdomen behind the navel; this is why it is also known as the Navel Centre. More precisely speaking, its area of influence radiates out about 7cm above and below the navel. Its counterpart in the body is the Solar Plexus.
The Manipūra Chakra is the “City of Jewels” in which we find the pearls of clarity, wisdom, self-confidence and wellbeing. .
With the gaining of self-confidence, pride and jealousy change to modesty and generosity, ignorance changes into clarity, and laziness into focussed, consistent effort.
Self-awareness and self-confidence are the pearls of the Manipūra Chakra. Until we discover these pearls within us and raise them into the light we live in constant fear – fear that we will not be loved, that we will be a failure, fear of becoming ill, of dying, etc. Many of our fears are produced by blockages in the Manipūra Chakra.
The Tattva (element) of the Manipūra Chakra is TEJAS (fire), and therefore this Chakra is also known as the Fire or Sun Centre. The Fire Element manifests within the body as body heat .
Yellow is the colour for this chakra, so use it in during your relaxation or meditation. A nice and powerful visualisation is making your centre radiate like the sun.
Bastrika pranayama is considered great to activate manipura.
I offer you today parivrtta parsvakonasana , its a great twisting and balance at the same time, you can choose any easy twisting such as parivrtta utkatasana (revolved chair) if balancing is difficult.
Check out with my lovely hosts for their offerings .
