24. Solar Plexus Chakra – Manipura – Mythic Body
The solar plexus chakra is symbolic of the fire that burns within us and is named for the Roman god of the sun (Sol). It acts as a gatekeeper between our heart and sacral chakra and is the place of our innate desire to maintain equilibrium. Its desire is to protect our powerful and peaceful nature.
The solar plexus is a place of vitality, confidence, courage, joy and sweetness. Our greatest gifts can be found hiding within our fears. The Solar Plexus shines light into our shadows to retrieve the wisdom born of fire. By making peace within the darkness we can stand in our light.
