Navel Chakra

<img src=

The Navel Chakra is located between your navel and the bottom of your rib cage. It is your 3rd chakra and also known as the Solar Plexus Chakra. The Sanskrit word for this chakra is Manipura Chakra and it means “city of shining jewels.”

This is where your strongest sense of self is stored. Here is where all your personal boundaries are set. It is the chakra of self esteem and willpower.

Your personal growth and change stem from this chakra. It is the key to transformation.

In Balance
With the Navel Chakra in balance you have a sense of value and uniqueness. You are energetic and confident. People recognize your integrity and personal honor.

Your strong sense of personal worth is your advantage in avoiding the pitfalls of excess. You enjoy a challenge, but at the same time you are not a workaholic.

Out of Balance
With this chakra out of balance you can be manipulative of others or easily controlled by others. Your self confidence is threatened and you may have a fear of rejection.

Lack of energy takes away your ability to put ideas into action.

The Fire Element
The Navel Chakra signifies fire. Here is where you burn the old negative aspects of the past and gain the power to command and manage your life successfully.

The benefit of meditation on this chakra comes from its purifying qualities. It helps to transform old thoughts and feelings from negative to positive energizing thoughts and feelings. Meditation with candles burning in the room helps connect with the energy of this chakra (or in front of a fire place on a cold wintry day).

As you meditate let the fire of this chakra burn old unwanted bad memories by visualizing them going up and away through the smoke and flames.


    “Through the fire I transform negativity into positive uplifting thoughts and actions.”

    “With powerful enthusiasm I achieve my hearts desires.”

    “I own and accept responsibility for my life.”

    “I am confident and courageous in my life decisions.”

    “The fire within me sparks the flames of great achievements.”

    “I transform fear into confidence and strength.”

Let the “fire in your belly” help you to manifest your hopes and dreams into action.
