Manipura – Mythic Body – Digestive System
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 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 see more clearly and stand in our light.
