An Introduction to the Manipura, Solar Plexus, Power or Yellow Chakra
The manipura, solar plexus or yellow chakra is located in the area near the stomach.
The third chakra is known as the power chakra because it rules our personal power, will, and autonomy, as well as our metabolism.
When healthy, it brings us energy, effectiveness, spontaneity, and non-dominating power.
The 3rd chakra - whose colour is yellow - deals with the human ego, emotions and self-love.
Intuition and ‘gut feelings’ are believed to begin in the area of our solar plexus: although, the third eye chakra is most associated with intuition, the "spark" is felt in the area of this 3rd chakra which acts as the biggest nerve center in our body by connecting to almost all the organs; thereby linking the three lower chakras with the four higher energy centers.
Physically, it governs the pancreas, liver, spleen, stomach, gall bladder and the nervous system. Also it controls the lower back and muscles.
To help activate this yellow chakra, sun bathe and eat yellow foods. Yellow is very good for getting in touch with your power and to build confidence. The symbol of this chakra is the triangle.
This chakra wavelength and frequency are approximately: 560-590 nm / 535-508 THz. The corresponding musical note is: E.
