Solar Plexus Chakra

Solar Plexus Chakra

The solar plexus chakra is symbolic of the fire that burns within us. Its named for the Roman sun god Sol and the Latin word Plexus meaning interwoven. It acts as a powerful gatekeeper between our heart and sacral chakra and is the place of our innate desire to maintain equilibrium. Its desire is to protect and balance our personal power with our peaceful nature.

The Sanskrit word Manipura means, “lustrous jewel”. The solar plexus shines as a place of vitality, confidence, courage and joy. Our greatest gifts can often be found hiding within our fears. The Solar Plexus can shine light onto our shadows to reveal the wisdom that hides within us. By understanding our shadows, we can embrace our truth and move through our fears.
