Manipura Chakra;
The Solar Plexus

Solar Plexus

Welcome To Your Personal Power Center!

Manipura is Sanskrit for the Solar Plexus and is located in the abdomen a few inches below the heart center.

This beautiful yellow power place houses your ego and self-esteem and is also known as your center for assertiveness, which captains your inner drive! Wahoo!

When Your Manipura Chakra is Clear and Open...

... you may have a warm personality and enjoy being spontaneous. Your self-esteem is healthy and you are able to meet challenges head on without being overwhelmed.

People who are balanced in this area are reliable and ultimately accept that they are responsible for themselves and there lives! These individuals have a healthy sense of personal power!

I like it!

Also if the Manipura Chakra is clear and open...

... You will have healthy digestion and metabolism. You can create energy to move your forward through life!

You will listen to your gut instinct and find it easy to make decisions.

Assertive is your middle name!

How do I know if my Manipura Chakra is blocked?

If this area is closed off you may feel powerless, apathy and low self-esteem. You may also harbor resentment and be indecisive.

There is often a component of underlying shame in ones life when this energy center is closed down.

Physically you may be experiencing digestive issues, food allergies, diabetes, liver/gall bladder issues and adrenal exhaustion.

Whew! What a struggle life would feel like with all of that going on!

Yellow Chakra

To assist the healing of the Manipura energy center, consume lemons...

Lemons are the perfect food. They alkalize the system, are rich in vitamins and clean out mucous. This causes your body to work better.

Lemons cleanse and rejuvenate the body!

The lemon is your new best friend if your Solar Plexus are weak energetically. I could go on and on about lemons.... think "Master Cleanser"!

Wow the last time I did this cleanse I was on it for 17 days! Talk about clean out your systems!!! I strongly recommend it :)

The Gland...

... connected to the Manipura Chakra is the adrenal glands.

Gems and Stones

The gems and stones that assist with opening the Manipura Chakra are Citrine, Jasper, Topaz and of course, Rose Quartz (Every Chakras best friend).

Evelyn Mulders, in her book "The Essence of Sound", says this about Citrine...

"Citrine is said to be the stone of "prosperity" attracting wealth, success, happiness and generosity. The Yellow colour of Citrine augments the Solar Plexus Chakra and promotes cheerfulness."

The Essential Oils...

... that assist the opening of the Yellow Chakra are; Ginger, Peppermint, Lemongrass and Rosemary.

Create your own spray for clearing the solar plexus chakra...

Blend essential oils of lemongrass and rosemary with the stones; citrine, tigers eye and rose quartz, also you can add some flower essences from the list below.
Spray this on your Solar Plexus Chakra and feel the energetic shift as you gain more clarity, wisdom and...

This is self-esteem in a bottle!

The Flower Essences...

... that assist the Manipura are Chamomille, Goldenrod and Pink Yarrow.


The note to tone is "E" and the sound to use is "oh".

If you chant this for only a few minutes a day, you will quickly see results IN the Manipura! If you've never toned before, try it, it's easy! Just open your mouth and let the sound out. Trust that it will do what you intend to do. As Nike said "just do it" :)


  • I am powerful, brave and focused
  • My personal power is growing stronger everyday
  • I am strong enough to follow through
  • I accept myself completely (my fave!)
