Lets Discover: Manipura, The Third Chakra

It is time once again. After the first two Chakras: Muladhara and Svadisthana, our weekly chakra post will today explore Manipura, the yellow chakra. Find out about this energy center by reading about it on our blog.

Manipura, the third chakra. It is located above our solar plexus, at the core of our personality and ego. Whilst the second chakra, Svadhisthana, was all about pleasure and its search, Manipura is the center of willpower and control of who you are. People who have a healthy yellow chakra are responsible, confident and reliable. It is not by chance that the name in Sanskrit can be traslated as Jewel City, that is to say the clear and solid place where decisions are taken.

Manipura is also associated with the process of digestion, as well as the sense of sight and feet movement. In traditional chakra medicine, if the third chakra is weak the result will be incompletely digested food and emotions, which will become toxic for both your body and mind.
